5 Tips on How to Eat Healthy in 2017

Jan 19th, 2017

The start of the new year always means one thing: resolutions. So many people pick healthy eating as one of their resolutions every year, but not all follow through. Why? Because it gets too hard for them or they don’t know how to start!  Sticking to a plan to eat healthily is often easier than people think. The key is to never go cold turkey—think baby steps! If your current diet is full of processed junk foods, don’t shock your body by completely eliminating those foods overnight. Your cravings will hit you harder and when you’re faced with bad food, […]

Nov 24th, 2016

The holiday season is definitely one of my favorite times of the year. But between spending time with my friends and family and eating all of the delicious and heartwarming holiday food, it can be hard to make time for fitness. I totally get it! We’re busy preparing big holiday dinners, shopping for gifts, preparing for out of town guests and juggling to get five things done at once! Sometimes the last thing I want to think about is going to the gym for a workout.  It’s important to me to move and sweat every day. Must be my history as […]

Wedding Bells…and a 5-6-7-8!

Jul 18th, 2016

Summer is the start of wedding season – I should know! One of the questions I’ve been getting asked a lot lately is how I’m keeping in shape for my wedding. Between cake tastings, dress fittings, flying around everywhere for wedding preparations, and everyday life, it can be hard for a bride-to-be to set aside time for a workout! Here’s the thing though, your workout doesn’t have to be long! Short workouts are just as effective because at the end of the day, at least you’re starting. Start slow because even if you only have two minutes today, do two […]

As a dancer, health and fitness is so important to me. Obesity is a huge health problem in America right now so we really have to do everything we can to start leading healthier lifestyles!

Dancer’s Abs in 5-6-7-8 At Home

Dancer’s Abs in 5-6-7-8 At Home

Nov 19th, 2015

  Some of the most stubborn fat that people starting a new fitness program encounter is in the midsection. Do you know the feeling? No matter how many hours a day you spend working out, the fat around your abs just won’t melt away! Of course, the secret to finally seeing those abdominal muscles is in nutrition, but always in conjunction with a good targeted workout. Dancers are strong and stable, and stabilization comes from your core. I have to say, there’s nothing like 10 weeks of dancing for 5-7 hours a day to shape up your midsection and reveal your […]

Dancer’s Legs in 5-6-7-8 At Home

Oct 23rd, 2015

  Even if you can’t be on a show like Dancing with the Stars, you can work on your dancer’s legs too, right from home and without any equipment! The key to these body-weight workouts, is a high amount of repetitions and as little rest as possible in between sets. Start with a light 5-10 minute warm-up and lower body stretch. You can jog on the spot, do jumping jacks, skip, or dance to your favourite song! Remember, dancers are strong and stable, and stabilization comes from your core! Keep your core engaged and posture up while performing these moves. […]

Motivation Gets You Moving, But Commitment Gets You Results

Motivation Gets You Moving, But Commitment Gets You Results

Oct 21st, 2015

Motivation gets you moving, but committing to a plan and sticking with it will get you results. Most of the celebrities I have worked with are extremely busy at their jobs and didn’t have much time to rehearse. When you make rehearsing or exercising a priority, it becomes just another part of your day and your lifestyle. Soon, you won’t remember what it was like when you didn’t exercise! You’ll be amazed at how much more energy you have. And once you start to see results, you’ll become even more motivated to keep going. The bottom line is, like the celebrities I have taught to dance, […]

It’s simple, 5 servings of protein, 6 servings of fruits and vegetables, 7 servings of anti-inflammatory foods, and 8 glasses of water.
