Behind the scenes & the making of the #BIKINISERIES ☀
Every year Karena and I brainstorm, dream, create and come up with a BIKINI SERIES that we think will not only motivate this team, top the last year’s series, but resonate with all of us.
What does summer mean? Does it mean flip flops, your favorite bikini and sunshine? Sure… but what really makes summer, ☀SUMMER☀? After coming up with tons of concepts, these are the words that we want this year’s BIKINI SERIES to scream… without saying :)
This year’s theme was “#CreateYourSummer.” You can truly create your life, shape the memories you’ll make and choose the people you surround yourself with. You can create your happiness. We are huge on making vision boards and lists! What’s on your summer bucket list? How will you create your summer!? We loved seeing all of your pics! There are over 72,300 #createyoursummer pics on instagram from the series!! Even more amazing, there are over 337,000 #BIKINISERIES posts too :) Now, that’s a whole lot of inspiration! You are what keeps us inspired and motivated! So, thank YOU!
Here’s the Behind the Scenes video of the 2014 BIKINI SERIES
THANK YOU NEWPORT BEACH!! THE BEST PLACE TO VISIT THIS SUMMER!
We spent a few days in beautiful Newport Beach, California where we’re hosting the 2014 Tone It Up Retreat! It’s the most fabulous place to visit or take a vacation with girlfriends and family. You can do just about everything from sailing, outdoor festivals, amusement parks right on the beach, surf, hike, explore and more. We couldn’t think of a better place to film or host this year’s fitness retreat!

Hill for capturing every moment, Jenna Anton +Daven Mayeda for making us feel beautiful and our TIU team Kelsey, Leckrone and Stephen for the hustle, the collaboration and the continued teamwork~~~ 3am call times, trailers and heavy stages are just a few words to describe the sweat, love and dedication!
