Convenience aside, the real question is.....

The Hunt For The Best Streaming Workouts

I know it seems crazy to be thinking of summer and even mentioning bikini season in February, but now is the time to start focusing on your fitness goals for that summer body. The end of February/ early March has always been the time that I kick my ass into gear to get ready for summer. I know it seems early, but waiting last minuet and trying to shed 10 pounds or get washboard abs in a month ain’t going to happen.

Facts about Fats

First of all the No Fat/Low Fat diet trend is SO 1990’s.  At least 20-35% of your daily calories should come from fats, but not just any fats, Healthy Fats. I'm sure you've heard about the Ketogenic diet. If not you should read this book Fat for Fuel by Dr. Joseph Mercola or get some research on his website mercola.com. I will be doing a more in depth post on ketogenic or as he calls it MMT Mitochondrial, metabolic  therapy. It focuses on fueling your body with fats and switching from burning glucose to burning fat.

Self Care Sundays: Kundalini

Keeping up with a regular yoga practice, kundalini practice and meditation practice seems like a lot in this fast paced tech heavy world we live in now. But think about how many TV shows you have seen every episode of or have binge watched. During one episode of game of thrones you could have done yoga, kundalini and meditated. It's just about priorities and for a lot of people spirituality isn't at the top of the list. Which is fine, YOU DO YOU, but just imagine a world where people did slow down and take time to look inward. It makes reflecting your love for yourself onto others a lot easier.

Gigi's Go To Budget Activewear

We don’t always feel like dropping a ton of cash on our gym clothes. However, with the ever evolving athleisure trend it is kind of hard not to be tempted to blow your cash on that cute as hell Michi Bra. Anna loves this brand and their styles are cute as hell. If you have the cash then I highly recommend purchasing a few of their pieces.

Want a killer workout that keeps you cool and crushes calories ......

Let me just preface this post by stating I am not a swimmer. Yes, I swim but I don’t consider myself a swimmer. I consider the water warriors in the far left lanes gracefully crushing a 100 meter fly (swimmer slang for butterfly, aka. One of the hardest strokes) the real swimmers. I’m still trying to maneuver a flip turn. Am I working my way towards potentially considering myself in that category, yes. It has been a little over 5 years since I first learned how to properly swim. Let me paint the picture for you of how it all began……

Art Of Attention Yoga Challenge

There was a point in time when yoga was my life. My whole day was planned around my practice and making myself available to study with the teachers whom I admired. This is no exaggeration. I basically moved to New York in order to regularly practice with two specific teachers, Elena Brower and Zhenja La Rosa. I got a job with Lululemon only because the company paid for me to go to yoga class, sent me to class as my actual job, and helped me grow a killer wardrobe to practice yoga in. On my days off I would spend my entire day at Vira Yoga (R.I.P) taking back to back classes.

There is no “get fit quick” or “lose weight fast” regime that is healthy, sustainable, and that sticks. It’s all about lifestyle changes. That is the ONLY way to reach your fitness goals and stay there. We all want to look and feel our best and it’s all about getting to where you feel good in your own skin. It takes about 6 weeks to see results from changing your lifestyle and upping your workout regime and unfortunately a lot of women give up before then.

Three Rest Day "Workouts" To Enhance Recovery

Anna and I LOVE staying active. I played organized sports growing up and as an adult I quickly transitioned into a workout enthusiast, getting involved with everything from teaching yoga to training for a triathlon and various fitness classes such as soul cycle, kickboxing, and barre. You name the fitness craze I have likely tried it. Working out for me has been always been a tool to develop mental discipline. It is physical activity that forces me to push my physical limits, so I can push my mental ones as well.
