A Day In The Fit Life | Equinox

A Day In The Fit Life | Equinox

My friends at Equinox asked myself and fellow bloggers Vanessa Cesario and Sasha Exeter to let them have a glimpse into what “A Day In The Fit Life” would look like. I’ve said this before but living a healthy lifestyle incorporates a lot more than just going to the gym, it’s all about making choices that contribute to living the best life that you can. For me, juicing, training & recovery are three things that I regularly make time for that contribute to my “Fit Life”.

There are so many health benefits that you can get from incorporating juicing into your life. You can do it yourself, or you can purchase cold pressed juices from a variety of companies. There’s a lot of flavors to choose from and they all serve different purposes. The Apple Ginger Glow from Fresh has recently become a favourite of mine and encourages cleansing, hydration, and energy.A Day In The Fit Life | Equinox

Training has become such an integral part of my life. So many people take their bodies for granted and I’ve made a commitment to myself and my body to take care of it the best way that I can. Whether it be running, participating in a group glass or working out with a personal trainer it’s important to make time for physical activity throughout the week. For me, I like to start my day off with a workout, I feel like it sets the tone for the rest of the day and starts my morning off on a positive note. My advice to people when it comes to working out is, it’s never too late to start and try to incorporate new things on a regular basis. – It keeps working out fun and fresh!A Day In The Fit Life | EquinoxWhat I’m Wearing

As important as I think it is to incorporate training into your lifestyle, it’s just as important to give your body time to recover. Three things that I do to help speed up recovery. 1. Rolling out with a foam roller post workout. 2. Giving my body the proper nutrients it needs throughout the day. 3. Sleep, it sounds simple but try getting in a good 8 hours of sleep regularly and you’ll see the difference that it can make.A Day In The Fit Life | Equinox

Over the last few months, Equinox has really helped facilitate my goal of living a healthier life in so many ways other than just being a place to workout. By having a juice bar within the facilities, knowledgeable staff, top of the line equipment and a spa it really does live up to it’s motto #itsNotFitnessItsLife

Holiday Juicing: A Recipe for Recovery

 

Hangover Helper

The Holidays are a time of indulgence – if you’re like me (and I know you are), you’re gearing up for a couple of busy weeks that will include a lot of champagne drinking, wine sipping, and the occasional celebratory shot or two…  That said, as much as we may love our long nights out, they definitely do take a toll on our bodies.  Symptom number one – the hangover.  Consider the following recipe an early holiday gift from yours truly – this juice is filled with all kinds of healthy deliciousness and always leaves me feeling energized and reinvigorated after a night filled with (a little too much) festive cheer.

Hangover HelperA Few Pointers

Thoroughly wash all vegetables and fruits! | Juice in the order that you feel best works for your machine – every one is different. | Don’t be afraid to use the stalks as well as the leaves, but separate the two first for the most juice! | I serve myself a glass and bottle the rest, with a good shake it’s good for a few days in the fridge.
