It's the start of a new year and whether or not you're a big "2018 Resolutioner" January symbolizes a new beginning.
We're out of the shadow of the holiday season.
School is back in session after a long break.
The warm weather and sunshine is back in Austin!

Maybe you're already on a workout schedule, but need a way to spice things up. Well, we are here for you! Keri's got 3 tips for getting yourself off the couch and into the studio.more
We are so excited to highlight Stephanie this month! She has been a loyal Green Bird for over a year now and taken over 225 classes. Wow! We love Stephanie's ability to kick burpees in the face every Barre+Kickboxing and HIIT+Barre class she's in. She always comes in to class ready to work it out. Read below to learn more about Stephanie's love for One Direction and why she thinks there should be a Green Bird Book Club!more
It's Wednesday and it's inevitable to feel a little run down from the week. Our instructors shared some of their favorite ways to unwind after a long day.
Julia: Wine, wine and more wine. Sometimes beer. Just kidding...sort of. My real favorite is taking the dog for a walk and listening to an audio book while I walk. Then wine.
Rachel: After I get the kids to bed I love to put on my comfy sweats, pour a glass of wine, curl up on the couch and watch mindless reality tv (Real Housewives, The Bachelor, Keeping up with the Kardashians) the trashier, the better.
Rebecca: Sitting outside with my favorite kombucha and just listening and watching the sounds/sights of outside. I'm going to be a great old person 👵🏼
Jeff: Playing my favorite songs on the piano with some Basil Hayden and Sammy curled up on the floor next to me.
Lauren: I love to put on a face mask, draw a bubble bath and read a good book while I soak. It's my ritual every Friday and Saturday.more
Erica Lammie is our October Green Bird of the Month! Erica's dedication to fitness over the past couple years has been nothing short of motivational. Erica was one of the first to reach the 100 class AND 250 class count. She has completed every challenge with flying colors and she can headstand like nobody's business. You can learn more about this fantastic lady via our Q&A below.more
Few things work better at getting a body motivated to "move it, move it" than some great, beat pumping music! Here's the playlist I'm currently loving to get your body moving this Monday:
Sorry Not Sorry by Demi Lovato
If you're not in love with this song yet, check out the dance video "Choreography by JoJo Gomez" to this song. That's some seriously HAWT dancing!!!
(Not) The One by Bebe Rexha
This song never fails to make me want to move. My little girls love it when I play this song in the car and we all shake our shoulders to the beat. We probably look dumb (me especially), but who cares?!
Ni Tú Ni Yo by Jennifer Lopez
My Spanish is mediocre at best so I understand pretty much none of this song, but the beat is amazing!! And JLo!!!
Living Out Loud (YALL Remix) by Brooke Candy with Sia
The gorgeous voices of Sia and Brooke Candy, who sounds quite similar to Sia, and the fantastic beat in this remixed version will be sure to have you grooving!
Instruction by Jax Jones with Demi Lovato
By far my favorite song on this list...more
This summer marks Erika's one year anniversary here at Green Bird! I can't believe how fast time has flown by with this early Green Bird. Erika is one of the brave early risers and consistently comes to the 5am classes Monday through Friday. The whole Green Bird team is so inspired by Erika's dedication to her health and fitness over the past year (she's completed EVERY challenge we've held!) that we just had to celebrate her as the August Green Bird of the month! Read on to learn more about this adventurous teacher and native Austinite!more
Michele has been taking classes at Green Bird for over a year now and we have loved every minute of it. She's around all the time, taking about 4-5 classes a week. Michele's sense of humor and smile make every class so much fun. There have been many classes where I am doubled over in laughter because of something Michele (and Kelly's, Michele's daughter, is probably there too piling on) says. We couldn't imagine 5am classes without Michele! Read below to find out more about Michele, her fitness goals, and bucket list!more
