Fitness Guru Richard Simmons Spotlight 13 Coveted Get-Summer-Fit-Now Secrets


 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

Hello Darlings,

As spring comes to an end and temperatures begin to rise, The Doctors wants everyone to GET MOVING this May and kick start better health. Tune-in to the Emmy Award-winning syndicated daytime series on Friday May 25 (TODAY divas), when the co-hosts welcome fitness guru Richard Simmons to the show and share 13 secrets to get thin by summer!

From L to R, Dr. Andrew Ordon, Dr. Jim Sears, Dr. Lisa Masterson, Dr. Travis Stork, and Richard Simmons on set at The Doctors

Simmons rallies the audience with a dose of his signature high-energy aerobic exercises and helps one dangerously overweight audience member find the motivation to get moving and drop his excess pounds.

Here are just a few of the 13 secrets revealed on the show:

  •         Gym membership not in the budget? Exercise at home using items you already have, including:
  1. Tights (stockings) – Work shoulders, biceps and upper back by using tights just like resistance bands.
  2. Paper Plate Push Ups – The increased resistance from a paper plate can amp up any workout.  Put plates under your hands and do a push-up; slide hands closer together and do another push-up; repeat.  Or, place plates under feet and do “mountain climbers” to work triceps and chest muscles.
  •        Fake a butter allergy! Even the healthiest veggies can be sabotaged by too much butter. If you’re dining out and worried the chef may not honor your request to remove butter, tell the server you have an allergy and save yourself from unnecessary saturated fats.
  •       Text a buddy!  Instead of keeping a food diary, try the “text accountability system” and text a friend what you eat each day. A friend may be able to better help maintain perspective on your diet.
  • Ditch the mundane treadmill workouts. Challenge yourself with a water resistance course – Co-host Dr. Jim Sears shows viewers how an H20 boot camp can burn up to 600 calories/hour without the joint pain some experience in a regular workout.

Media Maven & Gwen Lawrence Tank Top-Worthy Arms!

by Pro-New York Sports Trainer, Gwen Lawrence:

“Tank Top-worthy Arms”!

 

Gwen Lawrence is the “Super Ambassador” for GaiamTV.com and is giving helpful tips and tricks to work-out for summer. This week Gwen is discussing firm arms for summer.

We’re well into our commitment to summer excellence.  No fitness regimen is complete without toning to get those great tank top-worthy arms.  Want arms like Madonna, Kelly Ripa and Eva Mendez? The trick to great arms is high reps and resistance. From arms curls to plank holds and down dogs, work out with a familiar friend on GaiamTV.com and get motivated to sculpt your arms this summer.
Nothing beats a simple push up to tone the biceps, triceps and shoulders.

Remember to:
·         Keep your arms shoulder width apart, palms flat
·         Control your movements – lower slowly and rise slowly
·         Forget counting reps – instead, continue for 1-3 minutes or until you can’t go anymore – then add one more!
·         Don’t forget to breathe through each movement
For more of a challenge, try the ball version – or if you are a beginner, simply push against the wall – and watch your beautiful arms emerge!
Need more to stay motivated? Check out GaiamTV.com’s vast selection of great workouts and yoga videos.

(Style)Mpress Official Intro: Style Firm LA

Lovelies,

Style Firm Los Angeles launched a new revolutionary collection of shaping active wear that’s pushing “True” performance wear with a twist…the signature compression mesh lined pieces result in the appearance of a slimmer body before you even start your workout *Okay ladies, stop…I’m already sold*.  Stylish enough to be considered the “LBD” (Little Black Dress) of workout wear and constructed to lift, smooth & support, Style Firm Los Angeles makes every woman instantly look like the best version of herself, both in and out of the gym.

Style Firm Los Angeles Look Book Collection 2012!

The highly constructed, fashion-forward pieces are comprised of Supplex Spandex Jersey and Moisture Wicking Compression Mesh that slim the thighs, lift the butt and flatten the tummy while still comfortable, true performance wear.  The capsule collection comprised of 5 pieces includes: two jackets – a Modern Long Jacket and a Shelter Hoodie; three bottoms—Competitor Tight, Absolute Boot Cut and a Swagger Capri.  A Brisk short will launch in June 2012. The pieces retail between $92-$119 and are available at various retailers, resorts, gyms and online boutiques including stylefirmclothing.com, Sports Club LA, Barry’s Bootcamp and blissworld.com to name a few.

Style Firm Los Angeles is a fitness line for the “Everywoman”.  The brand was created with the busy professional or mom on-the-go in mind.   This collection will allow you to kick off the tennis shoes post-workout, throw on a pair of ballet flats and continue on with life’s daily demands, without sacrificing style for convenience.

Already a favorite among the industry’s elite and celebrities including Kim Kardashian who was spotted leaving Barry’s Bootcamp in the Competitor Tight, Style Firm Los Angeles has created a “magic pant”.

About Style Firm Los Angeles

Style Firm Los Angeles is for women, by women.  Founded by Marissa Mills and Lisa Present, Style Firm Los Angeles originated and still co-exists as a thriving event production company.  As stylists and fashion show producers, Marissa and Lisa noticed, over time, that the celebrities and models with whom they worked with were beyond impassioned, perhaps even addicted, to their compression garments to smooth lumps and bumps.  This coupled with the need to keep up with the physical demands of executing large-scale events and designer runway shows, Marissa and Lisa hit the gym on a regular basis.  Having a keen eye for style, the ladies noticed that no matter how fit and fabulous the woman, her workout attire didn’t necessarily do her body justice.   Marrying this observation with their experiences in the styling arena, Style Firm Los Angeles was born as a Shaping Activewear brand.  The name of their event production company served as perfect inspiration for their objective: to create a workout wardrobe that was stylish and flattering.  And thus began Style Firm Los Angeles.  http://www.stylefirmclothing.com/

Summer Fitness, Part 2

You can tweet me your questions and comments at @GaiamTV #GwenatGTV or Facebook me http://www.facebook.com/GaiamTV.

Thanks for joining me for Summer Fitness, Part 2 – I hope you’re enjoying working on your legs!

Summer, summer, summer is on my mind, and surely yours as well.  No matter what I tell you or coach you in, if you’re not healthy on the inside, all your hard training will be moot.

I’m not suggesting the pre-chewed bird feeding rituals of Alicia Silverstone, or crazy starvation cleanses, or even the strict vegan commitments of Russell Simmons.  However, I do propose sensibility and long-term dedication to health.   Remember to:

.  Cut out sugar

.  Avoid white foods

.  Give your body a 12-hour fast everyday (8pm-8am) – the true meaning of       breakfast is “break the fast.”

.  Get regular exercise

.  Eat organic whole foods

.  Eliminated processed foods

.  Eliminated chemicals in food – avoid anything with ingredients that you’re unable to pronounce or unsure of what it is

Use these guidelines to start making your body the healthy alkaline machine it’s meant to be and you’ll notice:

.  Increased energy

.  Improved sleeping

.  Less illness

.  The list is endless!

It’s a small price to pay for an efficient body.  The more efficient your body, the more readily it’s able to accept your new summer fitness routines and thrive on its new found shape!

Perhaps my words are still not enough to motivate you to stop the overindulgences and get on a healthy path. If that’s the case, then try watching some of the great nutritional videos on GaiamTV.com such as

Media Maven’s Super Ambassador Gwen Lawrence of GaiamTV

Hello Lovelies,

I am a strong believer in change! I myself have went through some very personally traumatic & life changing experiences. But I’ve realized that it’s all my past! And to keep it true to it’s form, I must change – evolve, adapt & grow.  My new FAB’U'Lust lifestyle involves a total mind, body & soul mantra! And this includes my passion for yoga *all smiles, blink blink*….so trust me when I tell you that it gives me great pleasure to bring to you:

 Health and Fitness brought to you by GaiamTV.com

 With non other than Gwen Lawrence “Super Ambassador” for GaiamTV.com

*Enter Gwen*…;-)

I’m so excited to introduce myself and help you reach your fitness goals!  My name is Gwen Lawrence, and I’m a celebrity yoga coach. I’ve been in the industry for the almost 20 years, and I work with professional athletes in the New York area, including my Super Bowl Champions, the New York Giants!  You can tweet me your questions and comments at @GaiamTV or Facebook me http://www.facebook.com/GaiamTV.

 

I am a giant fan of GaiamTV.com, the fabulous go-to site for every fitness need and trend.  I’m a daily user of GaiamTV.com myself, being a busy mother of three athletic teenage boys, running my own business, and maintaining a successful marriage of 21 years. I don’t always get the chance to do classes with my favorite teachers in their studios – but with GaiamTV.com, I do every day online! I get to try teachers I normally wouldn’t have access to – and now you can, too.  The best thing is that you can sign up so easily for a ten day FREE trial at http://www.GaiamTV.com.

So let’s talk summer. Spring has sprung, so it’s time to get serious about bathing suit bodies and skin-baring clothes.  The first thing to peek out from your shorts is a great pair of legs.  Nothing is better for busting cellulite, creating sexy tone, and losing the thigh jiggle than lunges, lunges, lunges – and oh yes, more lunges.  Side lunges to front lunges, and mixing in back lunges.  Remember to:

  • Breathe consistently
  • When you land, track your knee in the same direction as your foot
  • Try to maintain a 90-degree angle with the front leg
  • Do 20 reps on each leg in each direction
  • Try a hop to add power when switching sides

If you’re feeling strong and motivated by Beyonce’s post-baby body and her muscular thighs, do another round of 20 in each direction.  The great thing about lunges is you’ll get great benefits even if you do them without weights.  So, NO EXCUSES – lunge away while watching TV, lunge away while chatting on the phone with your friend.  I guarantee you will see results.  If you need extra motivation or more ideas for toned summer legs, try these GaiamTV.com videos:
