2017 is in full swing and like many people, I too made a promise to myself to try to live a healthier life. For me, it’s not only about making sure I maintain the “sexy” but it’s also because of my new job. You see, I just started working for the American Heart Association and working here for the past few months has taught me that living healthy IS and SHOULD be the only way to live. Just because you are thin DOES NOT mean you are healthy. There are so many risk factors to when it comes to cardiovascular diseases. Oh, and not to mention that heart disease is the #1 killer of women (scary, but true).
So, when I received the invitation to wake up at the crack of dawn to attend a kickass workout courtesy of Target, celebrity trainer Anna Kaiser and C9 Champion Limited Edition activewear… I said HECK YEAH! If you know anything about fitness then you should be no stranger to Anna Kaiser. She has trained some of the hottest celebrities like Kelly Ripa, Shakira, and Karlie Kloss! Anna is also the founder of AKT, a luxury boutique fitness concept that offers a cross-training technique incorporating the best workouts available. What does that mean? Basically, her full body workout will work every ounce of muscle you have in your entire body!
I’m not going to lie to you, the class was INTENSE, but the hardest part of the whole thing for me was waking up at 7am for it! I was very grateful for the energy boosting juice shots before the class.
Thanks to Target and Megan (the fitness trainer pictured below), and Anna Kaiser for the incredible experience. I’m looking forward to having 2017 be my healthiest year!
