My Top 5 Exercises for Toned Arms this Summer (for NBC News Better)

Tightening and toning your arms is a goal that is at the forefront of the minds of many of my private weight loss clients. Summer is here, and so is attire that shows off your arms!

 

Even if your arms aren’t ‘summer ready’ quite yet, tightening and toning the arms can be done fairly quickly. One of my clients saw results within three workout sessions when she dedicated 5-minutes of her workout routine to her arms. I recommend adding these 5 exercises to your fitness routine 3 times a week. If you’re interested in the arm workout routine I designed for NBC News Better that can be done in 10-minutes, click here!

The Best Exercises for Tight Hips (As Seen on NBC News Better)

Many of my private weight loss clients are work-a-holic CEO’s who don’t have a lot of time to spend at the gym – or let’s face it, standing up! We’ve all been told how bad sitting can be for our health, which is why I came up with these 5 stretches to loosen your hips. 

Working from an office, plane, or couch all have one main thing in common – the fact that you’re usually sitting! Danny Johnson, a corrective exercise specialist and personal trainer, notes that sitting can even go as far to pull parts of your lower back out of alignment. That’s why it’s essential to stretch and loosen up your hips! 

I shared these 5 stretches with NBC News Better that you can do from anywhere, even your desk at work! For all the details of each stretch, click here.
