Normal or Not?
Before I met them, I'd never guess that Karena and Katrina from Tone It Up would be anything close to normal. For crying out loud (as my Grandma would say), they're beach babes! They probably walk down the street with an entourage of hecklers and panty-shot prone photographers. Could these girls, featured in countless magazines and known online globally as the Tone It Up Girls, really be normal?
That's what I wanted to find out because word on the fitness scene was that Bravo had been scouting them for a show. Luckily, I got to meet and hang with Karena and Katrina over the summer and find out more about their journey, including how they found each other and where they're going next. I interviewed them on the red carpet at Pedal On The Pier in Santa Monica...
...and then spent a weekend with them as part of Oakley Women's Perform Beautifully experience in Napa Valley, California.
Being in the fitness world (which can be as caddy and competitive as any other profession), you hear a lot of rumors. And I'd heard a TON about these girls...but I was psyched to get the REAL STORY from the only source that matters. Them. So here it is.
The only missing from it is Karena's infectious laugh and Katrina's warm smile. No wonder Jane Fonda loves them.
These girls are bringing back the oldschool norm of happy, bubbly girl-power fitness. They're taking the edge off of edgy.
After you read my interview with Karena & Katrina...
Please come back here and leave a comment. What do you think about their interview? Are you dying to be a Tone It Up Beach Babe or is your fitness approach less girly?
I like what Katrina says in the interview you're about to read:
There’s no single road or path you need to follow. You should just do what works for you and encourage others to do the same.
But of course, I want to hear what YOU have to say!
