When in fear…breakdance!

Jake and I attended a really fun and high-energy fitness event hosted by Cody app and Kaisa, a famous fitness coach. It was all about building community, sweating and doing it at a Seattle indoor skate park. The party opened with Massive Monkeys, a Seattle-based breakdancing group. Everyone was bouncing and cheering as these dancers […]
