My fitness journey started at my first ballet class at the age of 3. I trained in ballet for about 18 years, and when I stopped dancing around age 21, I turned to the gym to release my energy, get my endorphin rush, and feel healthy and strong in my body. I’ve worked with multiple trainers, and tried every workout under the sun. But I’ve finally found a weekly routine that fits my goals. Which is: lean, toned, healthy, and flexible.
I personally build muscle very easily, so I’ve stopped doing strength circuits. And I’ve found that yoga and pilates give me enough definition for strong legs, a solid core, and toned arms. Also, try engaging your core when you’re bending and twisting in a yoga class. You’ll feel the difference the next day.
