Look. Listen. I need to get something off my chest, but first, let’s start with a story—a true horror story, to be specific.
We had a Fit Atlanta event at SoulCycle not too long ago—it was spectacular. Olivia Bird (who will be speaking at The Fit Atlanta Fest!) lead the class and we had a candle ceremony honoring our beautiful attendees and the amazing Fit Atlanta community. While we we’re all waiting on going into class, I saw a girl wearing a rubber wedding band. I complimented her and said it was cute and I need one, too, for working out! She responded, “Oh I’m just wearing this because I broke my wedding ring while lifting weights.”
*cue jaw dropping all the way to the actual floor* My ears couldn’t believe it. I started having terror-flashes of breaking my ring and also my heart. Exercising in fine jewelry is a big “no-no”. Ladies + gents who wear fine jewelry, diamond rings, wedding bands, precious stones and metals—DO NOT, I BEG YOU, DO NOT workout or participate in any hot + sweaty situation in your gems.
If you’re guilty of this, don’t worry! Just stop while you’re at it and never look back.
Let’s listen to the pros and do what they say. Promise? Instead of working out in your diamonds, have a glass of wine in them instead!
Diamonds are forever—let’s keep it that way.
