Getting Fit for GGG

The excitement is building for The Woodlands fashion event of the year, Giving Goes Glam (GGG)! The 8th annual fashion show and luncheon presented by CHI St. Luke’s Health and co-chaired by Nicole Broha Murphy and Emily King Wilcox, benefits Interfaith of The Woodlands and Junior League of The Woodlands, Inc.

Local women leaders will be honored through the community model presentations and professional models will strut the runway in designs provided by Saks Fifth Avenue in a wonderful collaboration of friendship, philanthropy, and fashion.

In anticipation of GGG, we thought it would be fun to follow a couple of the local models who will be gracing the catwalk in the chic event. Let’s be honest, these women don’t need any help getting fit or glamorous, but we thought we would let them do the “work” and glisten on our behalf. They will be exploring the benefits of some of the local fitness studios so that we can all get motivated to get fit and look fabulous in our stylish attire for GGG on Friday, April 5.

Our first stop is SPENGA. The first SPENGA location in Texas opened this past fall on The Woodlands Waterway, and they graciously hosted a fundraiser for Giving Goes Glam this past week. SPENGA sessions combine 20 minutes of Spin, 20 minutes of strength training and 20 minutes of yoga for an amazing cardiovascular, strength and flexibility workout.  To learn more visit, https://spenga.com/

Here are what some of our class participants had to say about the workout…

“It was an amazing workout! Just when I thought I couldn’t take anymore, we moved to another type of exercise.”

“It was a wonderful full-body workout, and finishing with yoga was sublime!”

Comment below and share on facebook to let us know what you will be doing to get fit for GGG. One random comment will be selected to receive a fabulous prize that will help YOU get Glam for Giving Goes Glam!
