Lug Gets Fit: Zumba Edition

Keeping with our summer/fall fitness kick, we brought in two high-energy Zumba teachers to get us moving. And boy did we! We were shimmying, shaking, sweating, and smiling right along to the music. It's always fun to try something new, and as our teachers Roland and Lily Ko say on their Zumba Fitness web site, "That's the secret to making exercise FUN!"

Thanks, Roland and Lily, for leading all the Luggers and keeping us motivated to move! Hope you like the pics!

Back-to-School by Lug

Back to school. Back to school ... I got my lunch my lunch packed up, my boots tied tight, I hope I don't get in a fight. Ooooh, back to school. ... It's that time again. The start of the school year is quickly approaching (if it hasn't already), and that means school supplies! While we don't sell school supplies, we DO sell lots of brilliant bags and satchels and pouches to store them in. So, without further ado, here is our list of the top three school essentials by Lug:

1. A Brilliant Book Bag
Here we've got several options. You could go with our classic, the Puddle Jumper, with all it's pockets and pouches. Or maybe the sophisticated look of our new Taxicab Tote. If a messenger-style bag is more your thing, try the Hula Hoop for ultimate organization, or really streamline your load with the Flatbed Slim Laptop Bed for your essentials. The Gondola Slouch Tote and the Cabby Social Tote are great, more girlie options too.

2. A Leisurely Lunchbox
The Petals Lunch Tote is perfectly proportioned with it's cute curved shape. But if you think it's hip to be square, go for our Freight Box Lunch Cube.

3. A Pencil Pouch
All those pencils and pens can't just be rolling around your bag! Try the Canoe Brush Holder, the Clearview Envelopes, or the Punter Zip Pouch to keep organized.

We've been having a GREAT time at our Toronto trade show these last few days, so I thought I'd share a few pics of all the fun.

There's been lots and lots of booth action! We love all the Lug love!

Capital Hoedown Countdown

That's right. We're just one little week away from the Capital Hoedown, and we can hardly contain our excitement! (Eeeeeeee!!!!!!!) So, to just to be sure we're all prepared, I've come up with a little prep schedule to make sure we're all up to speed come the big day.

1. Friday (six days to go): Today you're going to want to buy your cowboy boots or dust off the ones you store on that top shelf in your closet. Put 'em on. Wear them around the house. Get comfortable in them. After all, there's going to be a lot of boot scootin' for the Howdown.
2. Saturday (five days to go): Speaking of boot scootin', you're going to want to polish those dance moves. Try to find a honky tonk and a cowboy and get after it. Or, if you're more comfortable testing out new moves at home, Youtube is the place to go!
3. Sunday (four days to go): After all that dancing, go ahead and take a break. Don't want to burn out. It is a three-day festival, after all.
4. Monday (three days to go): Today you should pick your outfit. That leaves plenty of time to do your laundry if laundry must be done and/or to go shopping, if you need something like chaps or a prize belt buckle. You know, the essentials.
5. Tuesday (two days to go): Since you've chosen your outfit, you'll easily be able to choose your coordinating Lug bag. I suggest something that slings over your shoulder messenger-style. You're going to want both hands free for dancing, clapping, and general good timin'. You're also going to want to pack it with the essentials—a little cash, sun screen, water bottle, and ... MORE COWBELL!
6. Wednesday (ONE day to go!): Today you can brush up on all those song lyrics you've been practicing and just relax. All your preparation has you in great shape to enjoy the festivities.

7. THURSDAY! ... Y'all have fun now, ya hear!

Lug Makes Fitness Fun

Today I wanted to take some time to share a little about how the Lug office is Living Life In Color!

We love our Lug team, and we want our team to be happy and healthy. That's why we're doing our in-office Get Fit Initiative! What's that, you say? It's our friendly little competition that's aimed at getting our team up and active. Here we are, two weeks into the competition, and we've made great strides to stay active. I've already told you about our Friday Yoga Bliss, and now we have Walking Wednesdays, where we take 30 minutes out of the work day to stretch our legs and get outside in the fresh air. Staffers can also do workouts in our office gym or at home or earn points through special events, like our upcoming Zumba class. Each activity is an opportunity to earn points, and the top three scores walk away with a fabulous prize. How cool is that? (I know, right? Pretty cool.)

We're always interested in fun, different ways to stay active. So, tell us, how do you fit fitness in?
