The Ultimate Get Ready Routine

I’ve been a hairdresser for the past 15 years. It was fairly early on that I realized that you only get one body to do this, at times, strenuous job - therefore I’d better take care of it.

Over the years I’ve tried to make working out a priority, but one of the most frequent excuses that would get in my way was, “but then I won’t have time to get ready!”

So, I decided to map out my week according to my hair styling schedule and search out my favorite products to make that happen.

Here are a few tips and tricks I’ve come up with along the way:

  • Check the weather. If you find that your hair texture is easily affected by the weather, plan accordingly. If you notice the humidity level is high, embrace your natural texture.

Travel Tips for Fit Chicks (and Dudes)

 

I would have never guessed that a good portion of the questions that people ask me are about how to stick with their health and fitness goals while they travel. 

If you’re like many American's, you are going to take about three trips this year.  You may have business travel or a weekend trip with the girls or maybe you're one of the 72% of American women who are taking a solo trip this year!

  2. Don't stress over eating - You probably won't be able to eat exactly how you do at home, but if you stick with nutrient dense foods such as lean proteins, low glycemic carbohydrates and colorful fruits and vegetables, you'll probably do o.k.

If you only have 30 minutes

 

Most mornings, in 30 minutes, I can shower, get downstairs to my office, write 2 workouts programs and outline my next 2-3 videos. 

I can do a hell of a lot in 30 minutes and you can too.  

I polled some of my friends and asked how long they needed to exercise to get a complete a good workout. The answers ranged from 10 minutes to an hour. 

In my experience training clients, if you are focused (no Gray’s Anatomy on in the background or returning texts mid-exercise) you can have an intensely effective and gratifying workout in about 30 minutes. 

Don’t believe me? Then try this Fitness 365 workout and let me know how you feel. These workouts are under 30 minutes and if you don’t get a good sweat on, add more weight or add a bonus set!
