As a busy mom wife and entrepreneur, I find it important to stay fit to keep my energy levels up. I try to get in at least 4-5 workouts per week. There is not always time for the gym and I love a good at home workout. I have always owned a treadmill at home because this makes it easy to get up before the kiddos are awake and get in about 20-30 minutes. NordicTrack recently gave me the X15i incline treadmill. To be honest the first thing I noticed about this machine is how soft it was on my knees. I totally sound like an old lady saying this but if your a runner you can relate. I love all the features on the treadmill and the incline is crazy, it goes higher than your average treadmill which makes it a better work out. I noticed for me adding an incline helps to give me that surfer bum without bulking my legs.

The most important thing for me is staying active and making sure I fuel throughout the day, this means packing a lunch on the days I am at the salon and sneaking in that 20 minute workout on my incline trainer before I head to work. I also love a shorter workouts on the days I work because it’s just enough to wake my brain up without feeling overly exhausted. I also call this my de-puff workout…this way when I get to the salon I look refreshed and ready to work. Stop making it so hard on yourself, be accountable to yourself and find a way to make time for YOU. working out doesn’t have to be a big deal but simply part of your current lifestyle. You would be amazed how simply creating that space for yourself and staying consistent throughout the week will help you maintain a healthier more fit lifestyle.
