Tuesday Turn-On: Electronic Summer

It’s nothing new to say that summer is the time when electronic music booms.  Festivals are everywhere, and DJ’s are on every corner.  This week's playlist is inspired by just that; hot summer nights, shakin' it to your favorite electronic masterminds.  I know when I’m in Brooklyn, and the sun is setting, you can always find me getting down to Dirtyfinger’s latest mix.  He throws an awesome party, locals in the area; get.on.that.

New video day! As you know, I just completed a cross-country road trip.  Spending hours in the car isn't really a fitness geeks idea of fun. So I planned a workout in every place we stopped.  I got to try out new things, check out trending studios, and spend my driving days sore and satisfied.  Here's the first video from the road featuring... NASHVILLE where I got one to try one of my all-time favorite classes at The Hotbox. So watch the video and follow along the NonStop tour...

Hey Nonstoppers! If you’ve been following my YouTube channel, you know that I’m a tad scatterbrained. I dare you to find another fitness channel that combines pushups with puppies, male models, and prancing robots. So, it may surprise you that I am, in reality, very goal oriented.

How do I set goals?

1. Break it down!

We don’t eat a cheeseburger veggieburger whole. We take bites. And that’s how you should see your goals. Break them up into small, very obtainable steps.

Let’s say your goal is to be 20 pounds lighter by September. Well, that can be pretty challenging, but if you say “I’m going to up my cardio by two sessions per week,” that’s a bit more manageable.

2. Write it down!

Get a notebook or an app for your phone and jot this stuff down so you don’t forget. I’ve got tons of notes! All of them are little ways of me breaking down the larger goals into more manageable tasks.

3. Hold yourself accountable!

Look, I don’t meet all my goals all the time, but I always try to hold myself accountable. If you find yourself constantly setting goals and never going through with them, then you only have yourself to blame.

Watch the video for more info and write down your goals in the comment section!

How To Make Your Own Sandbag (+ my fave 5 moves with it!)

photo-1

BEACH DAYSSSSS!!! Relaxation, sun, margaritas... and beer bellies?  Don't let this happen to you!  I've got just the solution:  BEACH WORKOUTS!  Check out my latest video to find out how-to make your own sandbag and use it in a workout.  It's SO easy, kinda fun and VERY effective.   So you can get your full workout in BEFORE you pass out face down on a towel with your margarita.  (don't forget your sunscreen!!!)

Here's what you will need: 1. Medium Sized duffle bag 2. All the spare plastic shopping bags you can find

Now watch the video!  (I've included a step by step below:)

Step 1. Take the plastic bags and fill them w/ 5-10lbs of sand.  In the video I do about 5lbs each. I don't use a scale. I just go based on feel.  If you want to be precise, you will need a scale.

Step 2. Place the plastic bags into the duffle bag.  Fill to the appropriate weight for your workout.  If you've never worked out with sandbags before, I recommend keeping it light to begin with just to adjust to the feel.  For the video I filled 4 plastic bags to approximately 5lbs each for a total of 20lbs.

Step 3. Fill in all the empty space with the rest of your empty plastic bags to create a tightly packed duffle bag.  This will make the bag easier to manage. Zip it up.  Now you're ready to workout!

Follow my video for some great moves, or get creative and do your own.  Working out with a sandbag in the sand will burn between 20-80 extra calories per exercise!  It's especially great for strengthening and toning the legs and thighs. So slather on the sunscreen and enjoy a burn of a different kind!

Piglets, Puppies, and Planking Reps

KymNonStop cute animal video

So I’ve been thinking…they say exercise is a lot of work for little reward. But what if I could personally reward you just for following along with my workout videos? In my latest video, I do just that by providing a cute animal picture for every rep!

Puppies, kittens, and even a piglet! These pictures were submitted by you, Nonstoppers! And they are awesome and cute and funny all at the same time. But you only get to see them by following along with my workout.

The way it works? Watch the video! Do a rep and a cute animal pic will pop-up on the screen. Enjoy!
