The Best Quarantine Snack Duos

If you’re practicing social distancing, you may be struggling to choose healthy snacks over the junk food you may have purchased. One way I’ve been encouraging my private weight loss clients to choose healthy options is creating easily accessible and delicious snack options!

A 5-Minute Pilates Workout To Do From Your Couch (As Seen On The Today Show Online)

With social distancing and working remotely becoming the new norm for millions of women, it’s important to find effective at-home workouts. When you’re looking for workouts to do at home it’s important to find exercises that you are likely to do. To help you get in shape while social distancing I created a 5-minute Pilates-based workout that you can do from your couch while you watch TV!

One of my favorite at-home workouts to recommend for my private weight loss clients is a 5-minute routine to help work the legs and glutes. This workout is fantastic for women at home and doesn’t require any equipment!

Being a certified Pilates instructor I have found that doing a workout on a couch can be even more difficult than doing a workout on a flat surface! Your body may sink into the couch a little, making it that much harder to maintain your form. As a bonus, your couch may be in front of a TV which you can watch while you workout. If you aren’t into watching TV while working out you can also do this with a Podcast or even while you listen in to a conference call!

The Best Ways To Stay Positive During Social Distancing Due To Coronavirus (As Seen On ABC 7 Chicago)

With everyone’s normal being completely turned upside down, many women find themselves lacking motivation and positivity. Whether anxiety or stress is at the root of your worries, it’s important to dedicate time to yourself to find the positives in life.

While there is no real recipe or definitive way to stay positive, shifting your mindset can have many benefits for your health. One of the ways I’ve been encouraging my private weight loss clients to stay positive and motivated in regards to their fitness is to incorporate little things to improve their wellness into their day. If you’ve already done your 5-minute workout, you’re less likely to eat junk food and counteract what you did in your workout. You’re also more likely to do another 5-minute workout before you go to bed!

Another important mindset I’ve shared with my clients is that even one 5-minute workout is 500% more of a workout than sitting on the couch. It’s important to be kind to yourself! Social distancing and working remotely due to COVID-19 is uncharted territory, being kind to yourself is essential. For the full list of ways I shared with ABC 7 Chicago to keep positive while social distancing, click here.

How To Keep Your Family Active During The COVID-19 Pandemic (As Seen On Sporting Kid Live)

Many children have found themselves going from being active multiple times a day to minimal exercise due to the Coronavirus. Parents may find themselves grasping for ideas to help their children stay active or even just to burn some energy before bedtime!

With the drastic change in everyone’s schedule and move toward online schooling for kids, it’s important to add fun activity into their schedule. Getting kids up and excited about moving during this break from school can help keep them in shape for when their favorite sports return or even help prepare them to start to play a sport. One miscommunication about exercise many adults and children have is that exercise can’t be fun. This is far from the truth! Finding exercises that your children (and you!) enjoy is a great way to ensure you’ll both get the exercise you need.

For the full list of activities I shared with Sporting Kid Live that your entire family can do in order to stay active while social distancing, click here.

How To Beat The Remote Working Slump (As Seen On The Daily Mail)

The Coronavirus, or COVID-19, is forcing more and more women to take to their laptops and work from the comfort of their home. While working remotely may not seem like a big change, this change may lead to a drastic change in your posture.

While working from your couch or bed you may be extremely comfy, it may lead to adverse impacts on your posture. Most office chairs are designed to help improve your posture with features encouraging you to sit up straight and keep your feet flat on the floor. Your bed or couch, on the other hand, may not.

How you’re sitting when you’re working on a laptop may not seem like it would be a big deal, but it can really take a toll on your posture. While laying down while working may seem fun and exciting at first since you can’t do it at a traditional office, you’ll start to quickly notice neck and back pain. I shared an article with The Daily Mail about improving your posture while working remotely. For the full article, click here.

A No-Equipment Workout You Can Do From Your Bed (As Seen On MSN & Today Show Online)

If you’re one of the millions of women who are working remotely and practicing social distancing, you may find yourself stuck at home without any access to gym equipment. The Coronavirus, or COVID-19, may have you at home, but it doesn’t mean you can’t exercise!

When working out in the home, one of the best (and most surprising!) areas is the bedroom. Beds can make fantastic makeshift yoga mats because of how soft they are. They are also fantastic options for people who feel that sitting on the floor is too hard on their joints and bones.

One of the best exercises to do while you’re on the bed is a great stretch routine. These workouts are fast, simple, and will help you exercise while not even breaking a sweat! (That’s right – you can do this workout in your pajamas…)

I created a 5-minute stretch routine for MSN and Today Show Online that doesn’t require any gym equipment. This routine is perfect for anyone who is social distancing or even just wants to add a little more exercise into their day. For the full workout, click here.

How To Combat Bad Posture While Working Remotely for COVID-19 (As Seen On The Today Show) 

With many businesses making the push toward remote workers to prevent the spread of Coronavirus, or COVID-19, many employees are using their homes for home offices. If you’re going to be making this switch along with millions of other women, it’s important to make sure you’re taking measures to protect your posture.

When you’re in the office, you’re likely sitting at desks specifically designed to help you have good posture. The same goes for your desk chairs – many of them have posture support in mind when they were created. If you’re going to start working from your kitchen chair or even your couch these areas may not offer your body the same levels of support. 

Taking measures to do workouts that can help to correct bad posture and strengthen your abs can help to tone your midsection as well as help with back and neck pain. I shared a quick workout routine with the Today Show that can help you improve your posture while working remotely. For the full workout, click here.

Working out at home can be very convenient if you’ve got the proper home gym equipment. If you’re used to working out in a traditional gym, you may not have the basic home gym items many home workouts require. Luckily, you may have home essentials that can double as workout equipment! 

To do a basic arm workout you need dumbbells. If you don’t have dumbbells, you can substitute them for a gallon of milk, laundry detergent, or even jugs of water. It’s recommended to use items that weigh between 3 to 8 pounds, even if you’re using traditional dumbbells. 

If you’re looking for a fantastic total arm and shoulder workout, make sure to see the routine I shared with the Today Show. This workout is one I recommend my private weight loss clients do while they’re on the go. For the full arm and shoulder workout, click here.

24 Fitness Products for an At-Home Workout (As Seen on Yahoo)

With social distancing and working remotely becoming the norm due to the COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus, leaving your home to go to the gym may not be the best idea. While many gyms remain open, it’s important to take the proper precautions when using their equipment. Many of my private weight loss clients have decided to take the jump and start creating their own home gyms.

Getting a workout in even when you can’t leave your home is essential. Exercise helps to keep your immune system up, so skipping a workout isn’t the best idea with the Coronavirus going around. Home gyms have been on the rise lately, especially with the popularity of equipment such as the Peloton. What many women don’t realize, however, is that you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on home gym equipment!

I shared an article with Yahoo that recommends 24 of the leading fitness products that can help to either start your home gym or elevate it to the next level. Many of the items on the list are under $50, with most of the items being under $20. For the full list of home gym equipment I shared with Yahoo, click here.

The Best At-Home Ab Workout (As Seen In NBC News Better) 

One part of the body many women feel self conscientious about is their midsection. With many women emphasizing achieving toned abs in time for summer, I created a workout for abs you can do from the comfort of your living room. If you’re working from home as a result of COVID-19 or the Coronavirus, you’ll love this workout that can be done without traveling to the gym.

Toning your midsection has a variety of benefits for the body aside from giving you the washboard abs you may be looking for. To start with, toning the abs can help to relieve back pain. As a certified Pilates instructor as well as someone who has suffered from back pain myself, I highly recommend using Pilates focused moves to help workout your abdomen. Another benefit of toning your mid-section is that it helps you to strengthen your core. While having a strong core may not seem like a necessity, the core helps you to perform essential day-to-day tasks with ease. I always recommend that my private weight loss clients do exercises to tone their abdomen to increase their mobility and core strength – the tight and toned mid-section is a bonus! 

I created a 5-minute ab workout routine that you can do from the comfort of your own home for NBC News Better. For the full article, click here.
