Trailer Boutique is a big fan of all things healthy (obviously) and love the Tone It Up girls on Twitter and Pinterest. We know these SoCal health enthusiasts are going to have plenty of healthy workouts and finds to share on their new television show, so we'll be watching each week to share those with you. Enjoy! Local SoCal transplants Katrina Hodgson and Karena Dawn are business partners, best friends, roommates and creators of Tone It Up. Their new show on Bravo TV, “Toned Up” is all about these best friends building their multi-million dollar fitness empire, having fun and looking good while doing it. This empire all started with free workout videos on YouTube only four short years ago with the overall goal to inspire women to live a healthy lifestyle. Together, they have inspired millions and built a strong, dedicated online community. Their unconventional business practices and lifestyle make for fun and light show; Katrina's older brother acts as their videographer while her then-fiancé (future husband) lives as a third wheel with these besties in their girly-styled beach home. On the surface this show is filled with giggles, sun-kissed tans, flat abs and sunny SoCal beaches but we can see that it’s truly about building a business, balancing relationships and battling the obstacles that life throws each a every day. Their favorite exercise they share with us in this episode is the “Body Surfing” move. This works your entire backside of your body including the back, butt and hamstrings. Though according to Katrina “It should actually be called the apple bottom because it give you that oomph in the back!” Catch the next episode of “Toned Up” on Bravo, Thursday nights at 10:30 p.m./9:30 p.m. CST or if you want to check out the Tone It Up community that provides free workout videos, recipes and support check out their website toneitup.com.
