Fitness Friday: How to Get Toned, Sexy Arms for Summer

Summer is here, and that means breaking out summer clothes such as sundresses, tank tops, and bathing suits. If your arms aren’t ready yet, New York City personal trainer, Hannah Davis, has a plan that will get you toned and tight in plenty of time. “The trick is that most women focus on single-joint exercises, like biceps curls, which work primarily one muscle. Doing complex moves recruits more muscle fibers and works your upper body to total fatigue, says Davis. That means you’ll burn more calories and shed arm fat faster, so your arms, shoulders, and upper back will be sleek in time for their big reveal.” See more for an easy great looking arm workout at Women’s Health.

Get Balanced, Get Lean: “Fuel + Fitness the Total Package” Book Giveaway

My friend, Sandra Koulourides, is the most fit woman I know. I am honored to call her a close friend as she is such an inspiration. I am excited to introduce her brand new book to you, “Fuel + Fitness The Total Package”.  Sandra, a Registered Dietician and Fitness Expert has been counseling people for years on how to eat right and get lean. Sandra’s company, Fuel + Fitness, started with her infamous (and tough) workout called “Horizontal Conditioning”. It has become quite the rage, and she has released a total of 8 DVD’s as well as a DVD club where you get a new workout DVD each month. Sandra says her method is “not a diet but a lifestyle. It’s about balancing food, fitness and life.” She honestly offers a simple, practical, real-food, and real-life approach to eating, and her book provides so many tips, advice and much more. I am giving away one copy of her fantastic book to one of you.
