I got a query from Aaptiv, an on-demand audio fitness app that combines the guidance of a trainer with the perfect playlist on whether I'd be open to share what products I use to maximize my workout. So, here I am including a few of my favorites.
I love to exercise and stay motivated by doing something different every day. I’ve been doing Jillian Michaels “No More Trouble Zones” DVD and yoga at work during my lunch breaks. I like how tough Jillian is and her DVD targets the areas that I want to focus on like core and butt. It’s 40 minutes of strength training workout with “TV's toughest trainer”. Jillian combines upper and lower body exercises to maximize the effectiveness of the workout. The cardio and strength circuit training is intended for people who are serious about getting fit. This work out requires a set of 3-5 pound dumbbells and a mat. Of course, you also need a pair of sneakers.
I also love yoga because it is an exercise for the mind and body. This work out only requires a mat. I focus on my breathing as I flow through the poses. There are some challenging poses like the plank pose that works the core and the legs. I also like that it helps improve my balance, increase my energy and reduce my stress. After 50 minutes of varying poses including head stand, I enjoy the final resting pose with my body-length scarf as a cover up. It allows me to relax completely and often I end up dozing off. At the end of class, I feel recharged and ready to take on the rest of the day. I got the idea from Aaptiv.
