Sweat to Sparkle with Ryman Fitness (9)
This princess packs a serious punch!
Not only is Lizzie Ryman a kick ass cowgirl, she is a 2017 Calgary Stampede Princess and is also a Certified Personal Trainer who operates Ryman Fitness out of Calgary, and Cochrane, Alberta. Through positive and upbeat motivation and guidance, her fitness program is tailored to balance a healthy and fit lifestyle. Ryman understands that balance can be hard to maintain, especially when you're on the road, or spending long days at your 9-5, and then heading straight to the barn. Through the "Sweat to Sparkle" series, brought to you every Monday, Ryman hopes to reach and help as many cowgirls (and cowboys too!) as she can. You can learn more about the services Ryman Fitness offers at www.RymanFitness.com.

Louisa Murch - White is the Creative Director of With A Western Twist, a western lifestyle blog that shares a variety of trending topics, stories from the show pen, influencer interviews and so much more. After deciding to retire her cutting horse, Lady, she found herself a little lost and a lot out of shape. Lizzie, and Louisa, know each other from the Calgary Stampede Ranch Girls, above is a photo of them running a victory lap with barrel racer, Lisa Lockhart. (No big deal or anything). Cue Ryman Fitness to come in for some day-saving, and booty-kicking in the process.
For some reason, moving REALLY stresses me out... like big time. Between moving myself, decluttering, moving my ponies, cleaning the old house, setting up the new house... I am wiped. Ready to settle into my new (and super cute!!!) place, set up here, and get back to the gym. Feeling a lot tired, and a lot like I never want to go up a flight of stairs ever again. Perks of a basement suite - guess I worked out all week after all.
In other news, the winner of the month of personal training from Ryman Fitness is Sarah McKenzie, who sent me a photo of herself doing a badass plank... and promptly told me not to post it! haha I won't, this time around, but Sarah, you better send me something to post by the end of your month of free training! whoop whoop.
