Welcome to my first Ask me anything Health & Fitness Addition. I am so excited to bring this new series to my blog as well as to my Instagram! =)

The following are totally anonymous questions that you’ve submitted, and I’m providing my thoughts and advice. I received some amazing questions, and because I plan to post this series regularly, not all have been included. If you have a question that you’d like advice on in the next Q & A,  please submit it here.

On Instagram last week I asked my followers what their Health and Fitness questions were. I answered them in my stories with a quick answer. I thought it would be fun to continue the Q & A in a bit more detail!

Now to the Q & A …

What’s your favorite kind of workout?

My favorite kind of workout is Strength Training! Don’t be afraid of lifting weights! I absolutely love BODYPUMP! I started to do this workout at the gym and absolutely fell in love with this workout. Now I get to do it right at home! I also love yoga, BODYCOMBAT, and LES MILLS CORE.

What are some ideas to still get some movement but can’t workout due to sickness or injury?

You definitely want to listen to your body and not overdo it. If you have a minor cold I suggest bringing down the intensity. Often, you will feel better with small exercise and it can also boost your immune system. If you are used to exercising and working out frequently you might actually feel better with exercise rather than stopping. Just need to decrease the intensity a bit. You know your body best, so just don’t push it.”If you have a fever or the flu I would skip your workout altogether until you are well.

Try going for a nice walk around the neighborhood or a yoga session. This isn’t the time for a marathon!

With an injury, you definitely need to listen to your body and not overdo it! Until you are fully healed, don’t do any activity that could trigger the injury. And avoid any activity that puts strain on the injured area. You can still be active as long as you don’t stress about the injury. Staying active may help you heal quicker than if you just lay on the couch.

What got you into fitness?

I have always loved working out and wanted to do something that was flexible so I could be home with my kids and still bring in some money for the family. I joined a StrollerFit Class and fell in love with this type of workout. It was actually another Mom in the workout group that suggested I get certified and become a trainer! I never ended up teaching StrollerFit I had an opportunity lined up as soon as I became certified in training but it fell through shortly before completing my certification. I did come across another opportunity several years ago and interviewed for the job. My kids were 11yrs and 8yrs old at that time and the interviewer sent me an email by accident meaning to send it to her boss saying “She’s a mom, but her kids are a bit too old!”. haha /
