Bootcamp for Brides in the Plaza Grand Ballroom

On a languid Tuesday afternoon, Quest made its way to the Plaza’s famed Grand Ballroom, sporting not an evening gown, but sneakers.

Amanda Russell, Olympic-Trained Athlete, entrepreneur, and Plaza bride, hosted a bootcamp workout designed especially for brides-to-be to look their best on their special day. The workout was intensive but condensed to only half an hour, and the exercises were ones you could drop and do anywhere–the perfect routine for ladies on-the-go.

After breaking a sweat, Quest was rewarded with some delicious and healthy hor d’oeuvres prepared by Chef Robb Garceau and the CPS Events team at the Plaza Grand Ballroom. The class indulged in fresh cherry tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms and snap peas, and, of course, Skinnygirl cocktails.

Quest left the Plaza with a new burst of motivation–if only this could be the work-out routine every day…
