'What's Beautiful' hosted by UA trainer Shauna Harrison comes to the Bay
November 09, 2013, 05:00 AM By Julio Lara Daily Journal

One push up at a time. Or a pull up at a time. One chaturanga at a time — whatever exercise it may, Bay Area native Shauna Harrison is helping redefine what it means to be beautiful.

If you’re a fitness buff who travels in these types of circles, surely you’ve heard of Harrison, who’s been making moves upon moves throughout the Bay Area by bringing exercise of all kinds to the masses for years now. Locally, the Stanford alum has been teaching her Muscle and Flow yoga in Redwood City and most recently at Dethrone Basecamp in Burlingame.

But today, Harrison is bringing Under Armour’s message of “What’s Beautiful” into the city of San Francisco when she hosts a workout at the Union Square Macy’s in the heart of downtown. It’s a three-city mega event for the athletic apparel chain that started sponsoring Harrison about a year ago.

“It’s in the Bay. My home turf. It’s where I teach,” Harrison said. “I love the Bay. So being able to do an event here, it’s just extra everything. People that I know can come, people that take my classes, people that might come my classes after this, so, I just love the vibe of the Bay in general.

“I think it is one of my biggest events,” she said. “ESPNW was a pretty big event because of all the people that were actually there, but in terms of public events ... this is one of the bigger ones that I’ve done. And it’s the first event that I’ve done in the Bay Area. So for me personally, it’s a big deal.”

The What’s Beautiful series is part of an online competition hosted by Under Armour geared towards the athletically inclined female. Since it began in October, the buzz surrounding it has been great, Harrison said. Thus, events like Saturday’s have been popping up in places like Los Angeles. On Saturday, while Harrison teaches a class in San Francisco, New York City and Chicago will also partake in the day’s festivities. Those looking to take part in the workout and shopping experience are recommended to arrive at 10 a.m. Harrison’s bootcamp style workout begins at 11:30 a.m.

“To me the most amazing thing is when people who are in my classes or people who I train with discover new things about themselves and what their bodies can do,” Harrison said. “That to me is amazing. When you feel like you just ‘beasted’ your workout ... or whatever else, and it’s something you thought you could never do, pullups, or pushups, or whatever else it is — showing people they can do more than what their minds initially allowed them to do is phenomenal. I love watching people do that.”
