The Best 15 Minute HIIT & Strength Training Workout (As seen in NBC News Better)

A hectic schedule isn’t an excuse to skip a workout, especially when all you need is some space and some dumbbells. 

Life is busy. We all experience life at a faster pace once the holiday’s start approaching… One thing I’ve learned from my private weight loss clients is that they’re much more likely to stick to a workout and dedicate themselves to fitness if they’re doing workouts that are 20 minutes or less. This helps to make taking the time for a workout much more manageable into a busy schedule! I designed a 15 minute HIIT training and strength workout for NBC News Better that can be done anywhere, click here for the full workout.

How to Squeeze in A Workout at Work (As seen in the Chicago Sun Times)

Spending long hours at your desk can help you breeze through your to-do list, but doesn’t help your body in the long run! 

 

If you’re like most people, you spend long spans of time sitting at a desk and focusing. While it’s great you’re getting things done, you might be hurting your body in the long run. In actuality, sitting still for a long period of time can lead to side effects like aches and pains as well as added stress on the body. In my column in the Chicago Sun Times I shared four of my favorite moves to help get your blood circulating as well as stretch out the tight areas of your body.

The Mentality You Need for Holiday ME Time

Did you see my clip on HLN’s Morning Express with Robin Meade? It aired nationally every hour Thanksgiving morning! Here’s the 30 second clip:

The holidays are upon us – with shopping, parties, and family gatherings, a lot of people put their health & well-being on the back burner. But, during this time it is CRUCIAL to carve out time and energy for yourself! You must tell yourself, others, and the universe that, “Hey! I’m important too!” Here are a few ways and a few mentalities to fit in your “me” time this holiday season:

Think about why you value yourself and why you are important: Are you the glue that holds your family together? Do your co-workers count on you to be extra chipper during the holidays? Do you love to volunteer with your favorite charity? Whatever it is, people count on you and you are important! Therefore, take yourself seriously and know that because you are important, you deserve to place importance on all of you – your mental and physical well-being – over the holidays.

Look at your calendar: Can you go late to an event? Will a 30 minute workout in your living room really make you too late for a party? The answer is usually….NO! By making 30 minutes a priority for yourself, you will feel more energized, more relaxed, and more peaceful and better able to enjoy your event.

Analyze your food choices: Do you always seem to binge on cookies at a mid-afternoon meeting? Or are the buttery and fattening appetizers looking great this time of year? Make sure you don’t show up to events starving! This will help you avoid cravings and food binges. By eating every 3 – 4 hours, you’re keeping your blood sugar levels stable and avoiding cravings that kick in when your body just needs more fuel.

– Finally, think about your state of mind: Are you pushing off working out until the new year? Is 2012 “your year”? If so, what are you waiting for? One minute of exercise is 100% better than 0 minutes. Step It Up NOW and start getting into the groove before the new year – it will be that much easier to fully commit to yourself in a few weeks if you’ve gotten a jump-start now.
