COOL WEATHER FITNESS WITH BROOKE BURKE-CHARVET

Fall is upon us and I have been working on my winter belly all year LOL!

Most people are cramming in fitness routines to get bikini ready for summer but I like to stay fit every season. The colder it gets outside the better it feels to bring in the heat. Increasing your fitness commitment can help balance the decadence of the holiday season. We all know that the holidays bring on more social commitments, celebrations, and high caloric festivities.

Here are a few things that I do to manage it all, stay in top shape, and still be able to squeeze in to my New Year’s eve dress:

  • Drink a ton of water, and by that I mean consume a lot more water than your festive cocktails. BTW, hydrating will also help flush out high sodium yummies.
  • Partner up!  Training with friends keeps you committed, honest and laughing through the sweat!  Check out this sneak peek of a scene from my new fitness project–the Brooke Burke Body Fitness app that launches December 1st.  Join me on my fitness journey around the globe to see how easy it is to make it happen anytime, anywhere.
  • Increase your cardio, the more calories you burn the more fat you blast!!! If it’s too cold outside for active outdoor activities, then take an indoor class. I have always believed that cross training is super important. High-impact aerobics are my personal favorite; if you’re not sweating you’re just not working out hard enough. I also love group spinning and taking different types of classes with my girlfriends.
  • Hot yoga is beneficial on many levels far beyond body. One thing that I highly recommend to help manage the holiday madness is taking time out to breathe, relax, and get centered. Not only is stretching one of the best things I know that we can do for our body, even a five minute Shavasana can turn your whole day around.
  • I am really into home workouts. Being stronger than your excuses will allow you to figure out ways to stay fit even in the privacy of your own living room. BTW, if you follow me on social media, I share many tips and tricks that will help you tone and tighten at home. There are plenty of workouts available for FREE on YouTube and short little secrets on Instagram.
  • Yes, you can find tools to help with a workout anywhere–a chair can turn into training equipment at home.  Here’s me behind-the-scenes shooting for my Brooke Burke Body Fitness app in my backyard in Malibu. It’s my “No Excuses” philosophy at work!
  • Last but not least, one of the best ways I know to burn calories and have fun doing it is to dance the night away! If you’re really smart, you’ll kick off those stilettos and slide on your Skechers for your own cardio party!

    I love your shoes. I have worn them for years. I have several of them. But lately I can’t wear them due to having plantar fasciitis. I came to look and see if you had any that will help me with this problem but none of your shoes have any arch support 😦 I hope that one day you will have some….. for now I will have to stick with the others I’ve to buy. Most of these are really bulky looking. Your shoes are neat lines, stylish, colorful and happy shoes.

    Thank you for your shoes. For now the ones I have will have to sit in the closet.

      I would recommend the Skechers GOwalk 4, the Burst and the Flex Appeal lines for cushioned comfort and arch support. D’Lites are good too for heel cushioning, and Skech-Airs 🙂
