WORKOUT 8 of 50 Our family loves visiting California. It is the closest state to the ocean from our home and only a 12-hour drive. We’ve made many wonderful family memories here from the beach, to Disneyland, being The Price is Right as audience members, and buying stained glass windows from Kim Kardashian’s neighbor in Hidden Hills. Jenny lived toddler years in Los Angeles and her teenage years in San Jose. Tyler was conceived in California before his parents moved out of state. We have lots of friends here and we love to visit whenever we can.

We were able to film in two locations in California. Walk Across America was filmed on a beach in Malibu right off of historic highway 101. It was a busy road and the location had a lot of energy. During filming there were different cars of men that would drive by on the highway, catcalling loudly in the background. California is one of the first states we filmed outdoor workouts in 7 years ago, and it was here that we began to formulate the idea of filming workouts all across America. We had our baby with us because he was still nursing. It was March and quite chilly, the perfect weather to work out and sweat in. Filming at a lower elevation of 105’ was heavenly compared to the 4450’ elevation we live in. As a family, we love the ocean! It is one place we try to get to for family trips whenever possible.
