Best Workout & Fitness Plan For Your Summer Body in COVID (As Seen on Fox Chicago)

As a weight loss coach for women in Chicago and everywhere, I create weight loss programs for women that are realistic and sustainable.
That’s why I joined Fox Chicago as a TV health journalist to give my top tips on how to scale back your summer body goals this year due to COVID. Watch the full segment here.

 

Aim Low and High Five
– Set your goals as “mini” goals. With so much change going on in the world, aim low so that you
can feel accomplished.
– Then, CELEBRATE your mini goals! Research shows that when you feel good about
accomplishing small things, that’ll motivate you to keep going.
– Example: Workouts
Be Enthusiastic About Little Wins
– It is NOT business as usual this summer. With fear and instability around us, we need to find
things to be grateful for.
– Get excited when you make a healthy choice, and then move on!
– Example: Healthy Food & Drink
Train Your Brain
– What can you do to get in a positive mindset?
– Gratitude journal at night; daily meditation; listen to inspirational podcasts in the background
while you’re washing dishes

Easy Ways To Improve Your Balance (As Seen In Natural Awakenings)

Having great balance is often taken for granted until it’s too late. You may have suffered from an unexpected fall, which led to broken bones – among other serious injuries.

The great thing is that there are simple exercises that can not only improve balance but also reduce the risk of severe injury. One of the easiest ways I’ve helped my private weight loss clients to prevent serious injuries and improve their balance is to take a walk after dinner. Plus, some fresh air is always great for the body. 

Another way to help improve your balance is to have a steady diet of foods that are rich in Vitamins D and B12. These vitamins can help improve coordination and motor function.

The Best BBQ & Cookout Health Hacks (As Seen On ABC 7 Chicago)

The Fourth of July is a time of celebration. It’s also typically seen as the kickoff date for summer parties like BBQs and cookouts. 

 These summer celebrations are typically filled with plenty of food and drinks! Just because you’re with your friends and family (or however you’re celebrating social distancing style) doesn’t mean you have to abandon your health and wellness journey.

Some of the easiest BBQ and cookout tricks my private weight loss clients have used to stay healthy while enjoying social gatherings are to incorporate exercises into the event. These can be great ways to have some friendly competition between friends and family! 

I shared some fun BBQ and cookout exercises with ABC 7 ChicagoFor the full segment, click here.

The Best 5 Minute Lower Body Workout For Glutes & Thighs (As Seen In NBC News Better) 

Toning your legs is a fantastic way to prepare for a summer vacation. When you tone your legs you work to increase your muscle mass which leads to less body fat – plus you’ll even get strong, toned legs!

Aside from toning your legs and giving you a fantastic bubble butt, toning the glutes and thighs helps to improve your overall stability. Strength training exercises are very different than the exercises you’d do in a High-Intensity Interval Training workout – strength training is meant to be done slowly. Doing the moves slowly helps you to concentrate on the parts of the body that you’re moving. I designed a strength training workout that specializes in toning the glutes and thighs. One of the best parts is that it can be done anywhere with zero gym equipment! For the full strength training workout I shared with NBC News Better, click here.

 Simple Summer Workout with Only 3 Workout Moves (As Seen on CNN’s HLN)

Summer is here, so I love to take my workouts outside! Even if I’m just outside for a few minutes, I love soaking in the Vitamin D that I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. I came up with this 6 minute workout that uses 3 moves that you can do without any gym equipment! 

 

Whether you want to do these 3 workout moves indoors or outdoors, this full body workout routine will only take you 6 minutes. I love them because while they’re effective enough to get your heart rate going, they don’t require you to use any equipment. They’re also perfect to do wherever you are – on the go or at the gym!

Summer Workouts For Every Fitness Level (As Seen on NBC News Better)

Getting outside and soaking up the summer sun is one of the best feelings in the world. When the weather is so nice, you don’t have to stay inside inside of a gym to squeeze in your workout! 

Summer activities can be so much fun that you don’t even realize you’re getting a workout! That’s why I always encourage my private weight loss clients to step out of their comfort zones and participate in local recreational sports leagues. Whether you’re playing beach volleyball, pickleball, or even doing yoga on a paddle board you’ll be soaking in Vitamin D and getting a full body workout! I shared a list of the top 5 trending summer workouts with NBC News Better, as well as the muscles you’ll work while you’re enjoying them. Click here to see the full list of summer activities!

How To Stick to Your Summer Workout Plan

People everywhere are stripping down to their bikinis – but I know some people who are too embarrassed or feel too self-conscious to “reveal” themselves at the beach or pool. And this saddens me!

A lot of people think that women with “nice” bodies don’t work hard at the gym or are just “naturally thin,” and while sometimes this is true, often times it is really about the state of mind of these fit, in-shape women.

Remember Marissa’s attitude about her weight loss goal? I talk about it in the interview below:

Not once did she focus on negativity or bad things about her body. Instead, she focused on the end goal and had a no-nonsense attitude about getting the body she wanted. Furthermore, her workouts and healthy eating were marked in her calendar and were non-negotiable, while she worked full time and maintained a normal social life.

Similarly, this is the type of attitude and mindset that is imperative to get in shape and stay in shape. If you’re going to stick to a workout plan this summer, you must be mentally prepared to do so. I cannot emphasize this enough!

Leave a comment below, email me, or check out my 30 Day Workbook or One Day Intensive to get in the mental state to once and for all get in shape and STAY in shape this summer.
