ROXY Outdoor Fitness: Widen your horizons & explore the California coastline with South Africa’s Rosy Hodge

Widen your horizons & explore the California coastline with South Africa's Rosy Hodge #ROXYOutdoorFitness

New year means new adventures for ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rosy Hodge who will be joining the ASP as an official commentator. What else is on her 2014 to-do? After nonstop surf this winter and enjoyable winter weather, Rosy is keeping the adventure alive and exploring her new California backyard.

As a light, and great all around workout Rosy has gone into full discovery mode, looking for new trails along the California coast whenever the waves are crowded and the old shoulders sore.

One of her favorites, situated along the north end of Laguna Beach is Crystal Cove State Park. The backcountry is filled with miles of trails for hiking and boosts a beautiful view of El Morro State Beach. Rosy likes to begin with a light stretch when deciding which trails to take and reading up on the dangers around each location. Paired up with her On The Run Capri Pants and Embrace Bra, Rosy can enjoy the sunny terrain and picturesque views. As the day wares away, the Featherlight Windbreaker goes on for a brisk walk down the hill and back to the car. This lightweight jacket (which packs into itself), is an absolute must when traveling light.

An easy way to widen your horizons is to follow Rosy’s lead and research your local hiking trails for a quick afternoon or morning walk with some friends.

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Down and Ready to tackle the alpine with Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore

Down and Ready to tackle the alpine with Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore. Get her backpacking recommendations for your next adventure

“Keep close to Nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.” -John Muir

It’s so easy to get caught up in the busyness of life. We get distracted with work and technology that we forget what it’s like to be still. Going to the mountains and the high alpine is such an escape. It’s an escape from the crazy pace of life and the constant noise that surrounds us. It’s where peace can be found, and where you can challenge yourself both mentally and physically.

ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore recently climbed the East Face of Mount Whitney – no easy task! The time, amount of gear and energy exertion was at times overwhelming but totally worth it according to Rachel. Before attempting the climb Rachel always checks the weather and the first thing she packs is a down jacket, and for this particular trip her go-to choice was the Down and Ready Jacket. Priority number one is staying warm in the alpine, especially since temperatures often hit below freezing levels during the climb, on the summit and at night.

To get to the base of the climb it’s a four and a half mile cross country hike with over 4,500ft of elevation gain. It’s a stunning trek from beautiful pine forests all the way up to barren alpine lakes. Once at the base Rachel recommends spending the night to help acclimate your body; The night sky is always a treat up in the mountains. With no light pollution the stars are as clear as day, with dozens of shooting stars and even a satellite or two. As Rachel puts it, “The feeling you get up there is like no other I’ve found in this world.”. The size of the surrounding peaks, clear night sky, the sheer isolation and silence truly changes you.

In the morning it’s time to gear up, refill water bottles from the lake and head out. The climb itself is 2,500 vertical feet. This time it took about 5 hours. Rachel’s group was delayed as they met another climbing party and consequently stuck on a small ledge for over an hour in the wind and hail waiting until a good time to pass the other party. Luckily her Down and Ready Jacket kept warm!

When their group finally reached the summit they could tell a storm was moving in and it was starting to hail harder. They made fast decent and packed up camp, since it’s never smart to stay when a lightning storm is coming through. All in all it was a 14 hour day and one of the most physically challenging days she’s ever experienced.

Here are Rachel’s recommendations for your next (or first) backpacking trip:

  • Always do your research ahead of time! Make sure you know where you are headed, and that the trails are open and the weather conditions are good.Down and Ready to tackle the alpine with Roxy Outdoor Fitness ambassador Rachel Moore.

  • The basic packing list should always include:

    • a comfortable backpack
    • water bottle and water filtration system
    • high protein food and snacks
    • stove
    • tent with a rain fly, sleeping pad and a good sleeping bag (I recommend a down 0 degree bag)

Don’t attempt anything that you are not comfortable with. The mountains are not going anywhere soon but they will always be calling those adventurous at heart!

Roxy Outdoor Fitness: Sally Fitzgibbons shares the key components to a successful early morning workout

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons

According to ROXY Outdoor Fitness ambassador and professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons, the key to an early morning workout is putting on an outfit that ‘makes you feel like you’re invincible and can run at the speed of light’. Her outfit of choice for a cold winter morning? Standard Running Tights and the Ambition Running Tee paired with the  Down and Ready Jacket.

Here are Sally’s morning workout running tips that every girl should abide by (trust us! This girl is so in shape and on her game it’s inspiring!):

Warming up and warming down is absolutely key in preventing injuries.

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally FitzgibbonsMake sure you have an active and lively warm up including; leg swings, lunges and only hold any static stretches for a short moment.

Post exercise take your time in doing a slow cool down jog and hold your stretches for an extended length of time. Make sure you sync your breathing with the stretches to go a little further.

Make your run fun and exciting…Go on an adventure! Look off the beaten path and try to always keep moving forward and not go back the same way you came!

Put on your favorite #ROXYOutdoorFItness outfit & go on a run with professional surfer Sally Fitzgibbons

Have someone drop you at a destination where you are just running to make it back home or to a friends’ house or your favorite cafe to meet up with everybody.

Use your surroundings wherever you may be in the world. Study your environment and find little challenges like a steep hill and create a super set around it.

3 sets of 5 sprint hills will send the heart rate through the roof and get the legs burning.

Timeless Traveler Collection

Timeless Traveler collection. Travel with us...

Traveling, exploring and finding ourselves lost and found all at the same time is what we live for. We travel without cause and with plenty of imagination. We are unchanged by time and gather as we go and did pretty much just that on our recent excursions in Alaska – all we needed was a cozy sweater like the Good Day Sunshine Sweater- with its ribbed sleeves, Anchorage pattern, dolman arm accent, and slight hi-lo crop, we might just have to snag it in every color!; a jacket or two, a sturdy sack to collect all our knick knacks (map, antler sheds, camera), a pair of mittens, a stylish hat and a sherpa hoodie just like this one.

Our most recent escapades took us soaring from heli-rides atop Alaskan Glaciers where the views were breathtaking and basically the epitome of a snow-covered dream. After our glacier getaway it was off to the Crow Creek Mine where we tried our luck to find some gold (failed), yet it served us well as an idyllic setting to craft some gifts, sit by a fire, shop antique mining gear, and meet some fury friends. Since we essentially melt at the sight of any puppy, dog, or feline, the next day sent us into fur-friendly overdrive when we met Caribou, Moose, and Snickers the Porcupine at the Alaskan Wildlife Conservation Center.

If you’re wondering what you can do in a day, don’t…just remember, it’s the foundation of any wardrobe that will make you an expert in adventure. Keep traveling and enjoy the Timeless Traveler Collection #DAREYOURSELF

#DAREYOURSELF to have the most fun! ROXY Holiday 2013 is here…

#DAREYOURSELF to have the most fun! introducing ROXY Holiday 2013!

Take the mountain by storm. See the possibilities. Share the stoke with friends. And have the most fun wherever the ride takes you. DARE YOURSELF

We jet-set to Alaska with Torah Bright, Aimee Fuller, Bruna Schmitz and Maria Kuzma for the Holiday 13 photo shoot where we swapped our bikinis & flip flops for warm sweaters & cozy boots.

Waking up every morning in a snow-covered dream, we explored the glacier tops of Portage on the Kenai Peninsula, hung out with the locals (moose & porcupines, of course) and danced on the back of Sno-Cats. Exploring this place where the reflection of the water is as wondrous as the mountains themselves left us wanting to explore more and journey further into the wilderness.

ROXY Holiday is here…explore the Holiday lookbook!

Watch the final episode of the Roxy Hawaii #FiestaMovement series!!

Goodbyes are always the hardest (we’re really not very good at them), so in the last episode of the Ford Hawaii series, it only makes sense to take the long road with Kelia Moniz, Bruna Schmitz, and Kassia Meador on a scenic drive across the island and down into Honolulu in their Ford Fiesta. First stop in Honolulu, a little jam session with Ukelele maestro Jake Shumabukuro at a local recording studio, Island Sounds Studio. Next up, a car ride filled with island trippin’, picture flippin’, and reminiscing on the past 5 days in Oahu. What were your favorite parts of the Roxy Hawaii series? The athletes have theirs…Sandy’s Beach, coconut ice cream, shark cages, canoe racing, Waikiki views, Pineapple field rally races, and the list goes on…
