    Exercise Yourself Beautiful

    The importance of a workout for fitness and health is not lost on any of us. When it comes to losing weight and keeping it off, or just strengthening our bodies for the daily grind, it is essential to focus on fitness.   That said, doing things for the “right reasons” is not an incentive for everyone. Knowing that we should do something, does not always translate into actually doing it – or doing it with any enthusiasm. We know that we should eat right but that alone is sometimes not enough. Let’s face it: advertisers know that. That’s why so many tempting foods are advertised as “guilty pleasures”. So…

    BARRE3 Online Studio

    I have been looking everywhere for Barre type classes where you work with your own body weight, stretching and lengthening. I haven’t had the time to go to a studio and I was so excited to discover Barre3. They have online videos where you can do the workouts in the comfort of your own home! The best part is, you don’t need anything! You can use a chair, a counter and even bottles of water for additional weights. These workouts are not easy! But they do offer modifications for people who are out of shape like me :). I tried the 10 min workout just to try it out and…

    What Makes Us Look Older Than We Want To Appear?

    I don’t mind getting wiser and more experienced. But like most women, I wish that wisdom wouldn’t show up on my face. Signs of aging can be quite hard to identify, though. It’s not always easy to figure out why we’re looking older. And it’s not always easy to figure out how to undo it either. There are dozens of signs that we are starting to age. It may start with your hair thinning. Perhaps you even have a gray or two. Dying your hair can hide those grays. Many good color products also provide nourishing creams to ensure your hair doesn’t become damaged. Keeping your hair moisturized can help…

    Event LOVE: #InTheDanceTO with @IAMYENDI

    I got an invite to attend a Dancehall Fitness class a few weeks ago, and I had no idea what to expect. I’d never even heard of a Dancehall Fitness class, but I knew that there was no way I was going to miss it. AND, when you hear that the gorgeous Miss Jamaica World and Miss Jamaica Universe Yendi Phillips is flying all the way from sunny Jamaica to cold and freezing Toronto to share her work out secrets with us, there is definitely no way I was going to miss it. She  recently released her fitness Dancehall video, In The Dance Fitness Jamaica and came to Toronto to…

    Spend time on YOU…by practicing Bikram Yoga

     I’ve picked up Bikram Yoga again…it’s definitely different than the yoga some people might think of if you’ve never heard of bikram. This hot yoga is 90 minutes in a 105°F room and consists of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. I know some people don’t always come prepared so make sure you bring water, a mat, towel, and a washcloth (not everyone brings this). Another important thing is to make sure you hydrate before you go! The postures (they’re do-able!) I live in the Boston area now (Andover, which is about 15 minutes north of Boston if there’s no traffic). I found Bikram Yoga Merrimack Valley (located in North…

    Exercise tips from @NadeenBoman

    Yes I took a few sips before taking the picture… A lot of us get lazy and find it hard to stay fit and healthy during the winter months; so Nadeen Boman (spokesperson of Powerade Zero ION4) shared some of her go-to exercises to help us stay nice and tight during the cold season. Legs Squat and Leg Lift– Start in squat position with feet about hip width apart and chest lifted. Knees should be over your heels so that you can see your toes. Stand and extend right leg back at a 45 degree angle, leading with your heel. Repeat squat, stand and leg lift on right leg for…
