Although we weren't sure if it was really going to happen, it happened. Last Friday we held an epic Racked Fit Club class at North Hollywood's The Sweat Shoppe, which was hosted by LA's Hottest Trainer of 2014, Naomi Priestley. Although we knew that working out with the ridiculously gorgeous instructor would be a treat in itself, we were secretly hoping that her husband, Beverly Hills 90210 heartthrob Jason Priestley, would show up to support. Not only did he make an appearance, but
As for Naomi's attire, she was wearing a cool look by stylish local fitness label OUT Incorporated. The 55-minutes class felt like a total club experience, except instead of getting down on the dancefloor to Billboard bangers we were fist-pumping on indoor cycling bikes, sweating our faces off in that 80-degree room. It was exhausting at first, but there were some real endorphins released at some point and it felt somewhat therapeutic and dare we say euphoric!
See below for some extra snaps and in case you're wondering, yes, Jason Priestley is a freakin' beast on that bike.

Refreshments provided by The Sweat Shoppe's friends at Oui Juice. (The coconut juice with thick chunks of coconut meat is beyond delicious.)
You couldn't miss Jason in that neon orange shirt.
