Hello, Charleston. Yep, that’s right, we’re back again, and all in the name of MADness. We opened the doors to MADabolic Charleston (Mt. Pleasant) in the beginning of June, and this weekend we celebrated the coaches, community, and the complete disbelief that it’s only been 7 weeks.
After an epic Thursday and Friday nights (which I’ll recap later this week) we kicked off the Grand Opening celebration on Saturday with some morning interval action (it.was.brutal.) followed by FREE samples from our friends at modpaleo.
I met Amber and Carter, the creators/owners of Modpaleo, a few years ago – just prior to their meal plan launch- when I started to drop into their morning bootcamp in Charlotte for lululemon. Like anyone who has pushed hard to eat clean, they recognized the lack of convenient or easy meal options for those days or weeks when you just don’t have the time to spend hours doing prep work. Thus modpaleo was born providing amazing chef prepared paleo meals to their pick up locations (in select cities…).
We are now one of their pick up locations in Charleston, and the only one in Mt. Pleasant, so check them out and place an order! The food is amazing, and the convenience seriously can’t be beat.

After two packed morning classes, and two additional preview classes for new clients, there was just enough time to take a 30 minute nap in between setting up and getting ready to go.
I don’t have all the pictures back from our photographer to really do the whole event justice, but I have to give a huge shout out to the guys from Charleston Choo who catered the event and did an amazing job. I absolutely loved all the food, and they went beyond what I was even envisioning with the house made dressings and original recipes to fit our locally-sourced and more farm-to-table requests.
Our friends from King of Pops were also there to round out the catering with their sweet treats and signature pops.
The party was awesome, and a great celebration of our community. And let’s not forget our awesome founding team of coaches, all of whom made this community (and stream of photos) as ridiculous and fun as it is strong.
There’s really nothing as good as a Saturday night well spent with a group of great people. Thanks Charleston for another awesome weekend.
