A few months back I was asked by Latina magazine to share 5 simple ways to incorporate more fitness into a daily routine. Here’s what I shared:
1. ¡Horario, Baby! Schedule it! Give your workouts (and your health) as much importance as your other life events. (They’re probably even more important, in the scheme of things, because if you’re not healthy you’re of no good to anyone else, either.) Only YOU can set aside time for you. So set some time aside and exercise!
2. ¡Disfrútate! Have fun! Make it fun by joining a friend. Instead of cocktails take a walk together. Women thrive in a community.
3. ¡Camina, Chica! Walk, Girl! Park father from your destination and walk (to work, the mall, etc).
4. ¡Sube! Take the stairs, (or park farther from your destination), whenever possible.
5. ¡Pon to smartphone a trabajar! Make your smartphone work for you! Join an online workout program that you can access from any device, including your smartphone. Learn more about my new online program here!

Interval training – short, high-energy bursts of exercise interspersed with lower-intensity exercise – is fun and has loads of benefits. In addition to adding variety to your workout it also gets your endorphins flowing more quickly, which leaves you feeling amazing for the rest of the day. You burn more calories. Climbing hills (and stairs) is easier. You have better endurance, which makes you stronger and faster in every other form of cardiovascular activity.
Interval training – due to its intense qualities – yields a heightened immune response. In fact, people who exercise regularly build-up their immune system by creating a “shield” against colds and flu.
Another great benefit of interval training (and exercise, in general) is that you get younger. Yes, really. The benefits of exercise are profound and impact all aspects of your life. You sleep better. You wake up more refreshed. Your skin glows. Your digestion improves. Your attitude throughout the day becomes consistently positive. You have more ideas. You’re more creative. Overall, you’re healthy and well and more fun to be around.
The best part is that you can have all of this in as little as 30 minutes a day!

Ok, so día 5 of my 30 in 30 Challenge was a busy one. My son woke up sick, so I didn’t get my usual morning workout in. Instead, after a doctor’s appointment and a run to the pharmacy I was able to (kind of) do the Crunch Cardio Salsa workout DVD. I say “kind of” because as I danced around my son tried to walk through my legs, (he’s obsessed with “tunnels” these days). Anyway, I certainly did move my body.
How about you? How is the Challenge going for you and what did YOU do today to move your body and inspire others to do so?
