Welcome to Fitness Friday! This week we have Alicia Murphy, a Fat Loss expert and the owner of The Edge Fitness Training in Southern California. As a new mom, Alicia, has developed fitness programming for busy lifestyles. Her high-energy workouts are designed to raise your metabolism, increase strength and burn fat in a lively atmosphere. Alicia will spend the day hosting the SKECHERS Facebook page with pointers on how to enjoy a healthy lifestyle everyday.
Here are Alicia’s Tips:
Tip #1: Having a hectic lifestyle is no excuse to not eat healthy. Preparing a nutritious meal for your family doesn’t have to be a burden. Here’s a recipe for a meal that you can whip up in only 20 minutes! Everyone will love this one!
Tip #2: Workouts should be quick, yet effective. Amazing results can be achieved by exercising for only 30 minutes at a time. Check out this workout, designed to get you fit in a hurry! No equipment necessary.
Tip #3: Remember, when the goal is fat loss, the key is high intensity intervals! It doesn’t mean that you have to make your workouts high impact; you just need to get your heart rate up and then let it come back down over and over. For example, pick two exercises such as body weight squats and push-ups. Do the exercises back-to-back for a total of one minute, then rest for a minute. Continue in that fashion 6-10 times. It’s quick! AND now your metabolism will be hummin’ for hours!
Tip #4: Being fit and feeling good will transform every aspect of your life, making everything more enjoyable. You have the power to inspire others and be a positive influence simply through leading by example. Remember: Always Go After What You Want!
