Hi Friends!

Have you ever done a workout that gives back? They are so much fun! Get fit while you make a positive impact – it doesn’t get any sweeter than that.

This past weekend I joined EQUINOX and some of my #fitfam to teach for and participate in Cycle For Survival in San Francisco. It was my 7th year teaching for this incredible cause that raises money for rare cancers through a fun indoor cycling class. Did you know that About 50 percent of people with cancer have a rare cancer?? Rare cancers include brain, pancreatic, ovarian, stomach, all types of pediatric cancers, and many others. Even though they account for about half of all cancer diagnoses when combined, research on many rare cancers is drastically underfunded, often leaving patients with limited or no treatment options.

But the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center—the world’s oldest and largest private cancer center—is committed to changing that reality. And thanks to events like Cycle For Survival, have been able to make a POWERFUL impact in the fight against rare cancers. Thanks to the tremendous efforts of participants, donors, and supporters, Cycle for Survival has raised $126 million for rare cancer research, and funded 100+ clinical trials and research studies.

Teaching at Cycle for Survival means more to me every year. I am honored to have been able to teach for this very special cause and inspired by EVERYONE who continues to cycle, sweat, support, and give back. We will keep cycling till we find a cure. You can join the battle with us here: Http://www.cycleforsurvival.org/

I wanted to share my teaching playlist from my hour of the ride. I mixed it up this year and put together a flavorful combination of 90’s throwbacks and feel good songs that make you smile while you sweat. The theme for my ride was: “Ride for the joy of moving. Ride for the joy of living. Ride for the joy of loving.” 

And we did just that on February 11th in SF. We rode with heart and so much LOVE. Thank you for having me San Francisco!! You were awesome out there! I hope this playlist lifts you up and reminds you to move for the joy of it in your life.

Get Rid of Sciatic Pain. Stretching and Strengthening Exercises for Pain Relief.

Sciatic Pain, or Sciatica, which is pain along the large sciatic nerve that runs from the lower back down the back of each leg, can cause severe, debilitating pain. But there are all natural ways to ease and treat Sciatic Pain. Read on for a quick video routine to overcome Sciatic Pain.

Hi Friends!

Are you struggling to overcome a “pain in the butt” sensation? Do you ever wake up feeling agonizing pain all the way from your upper thighs to your feet? Do you deal with nagging lower back pain that spreads downward and won’t seem to quit no matter what you try? You could be dealing with sciatic nerve pain, also called sciatica, which causes painful throbbing in the lower back and limbs. I am here to help you feel better!!

Overcome Sciatic pain with this exercise routine designed specifically to help stabilize the pelvis and muscles of the hips, core, and butt to prevent and treat pain. In this video, I’ll guide you through simple stretches and strength exercises that will relieve sciatic pain and tension.

You’ll begin this therapy based workout session with a few simple stretches that will likely stop your pain immediately. Then I will lead you through a series of key exercises to strengthen your core, legs, and butt. These moves will help you develop the strength you need to stabilize the pelvis and live without sciatic pain. Once you are pain free continue to practice these exercises on your own to bring long lasting relief and prevent future flare ups.

Many doctors will tell you that you should stop training or stop the sport that caused the pain, however I believe that it is possible to overcome Sciatic pain and it’s symptoms with proper management and therapy based exercises like the exercises in this video. Movement is medicine. A regular physical stretching and strength routine will help you get rid of sciatic pain and live tension free. Repeat this routine as much as needed to keep your body feeling its best and live without sciatic pain.

Foot Ankle Strengthening Exercises. Rehabilitation Program For Pain Relief.

Hi Friends!

Join me for this 15 minute foot and ankle strengthening exercise rehabilitation program for pain relief. These are some of the  all time best exercises to strengthen, stretch, and mobilize your feet, ankles, and toes. I have personally used to help recover from a serious foot injury and return to foot health.

To do this video you’ll need:

  • a foam roller or something to hang on to (wall or chair)
  • A small ball or small pillow
  • A set of yoga toes or pedicure toe separators – you can get my favorite set here.

ALWAYS check with your doctor or physical therapist before starting this or any other exercise routine. Listen to your body and be smart! Healing is your #1 priority. Stop if you feel any pain!

In this video you’ll complete a series of exercises for your toes, ankles, and feet. All of the moves will help you gain strength, mobility, and health. The toe swaps are challenging and fun to master! Hopefully they can aid in you performing better in all the activities you love or heal from an injury to return to full health.

Foot and ankle injuries are extremely common among athletes and other physically active individuals. Rehabilitation programs like the one in this video that emphasize the use of therapeutic exercise to restore joint range of motion, muscle strength, neuromuscular coordination, and gait mechanics have been shown to have clinical success for patients suffering various foot and ankle pathologies. Rehabilitation programs are beneficial for ankle sprains, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, turf toe, heel pain, ball of foot pain, toe pain, ankle sprain, stress fractures, mortons neroma, or other foot and ankle conditions.

The human foot is made of 26 bones and approximately 100 muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It is also the part of the body that bears the most weight, so it is not uncommon to suffer from foot pain or diagnosed foot problems at some point in your life. It helps to make foot and ankle specific stretching and strengthening a regular part of your daily regimen. Take good care of your ankles, arches, and toes. It can be done in a few minutes a day and just might make the difference in keeping your feet pain and injury free. Exercise specific to foot care can go a long way towards improving all aspects of a healthy lifestyle.

Start from the ground up — work your feet for a maximum body benefit! Here you go!

 

Be sure to also check out these hurt foot workouts and foot exercise videos  to help your feet feel fabulous.

I hope you enjoy this video! I want to help you live without pain and feel your very best! I hope these exercises serve you in having happy, healthy, feet.

Happy feet = happy life. Keep smiling and keep shining my friends.

Burn More Calories When You Sit Upright!

150

Did you know that sitting upright daily will help you burn up to 350 more calories a day?! Burn calories while you sit? Yes. I like it.

When I was working on writing my first book, I started to notice my body hurt. My back would be sore. My shoulders would feel tight. My hips would get all out of whack. I started to wonder why my workouts weren’t feeling as hot. And then it hit me. I was spending a lot of time sitting. A lot. And my posture was not on point.

Growing up a dancer and fitness instructor, I wasn’t used to spending so many consistent hours on the computer. But I had become so excited working on writing my book that my posture took a hit. Once I realized I was slouching, I decided to take action and work towards counterbalancing the negative effects of all that sitting. Posture is EVERYTHING. It effects how you move, perform, and feel. Not to mention you just look better when you stand up tall. Now I’ve come to truly appreciate the value of good posture and keep my posture in check using these lifestyle hacks:

  • Work it OUT. Follow a balanced exercise program that incorporates corrective exercises for good posture. Do exercises that stretch and open the front of your body (chest, shoulders, hip flexors, and quads) and strengthen the back/core of your body (upper back, lower back, abdominals, butt, hamstrings).  Stretch the front, strengthen the back. Simple right? If you are not sure which exercises to do, I’ve put together a few posture perfect workout videos for you on Youtube. These exercises are a sample of what you can do to improve your posture and look as tall as you feel. Press play and let me know if you feel taller after.

  • Time it. Human beings are not designed to sit in an office all day,  we are built to move!  Every hour, get out of your office chair and move. Even 1-2 minutes of simple exercises and stretches can work wonders.
  • Think up! If you feel your head or shoulders jut forward, pull them back and act as if a string were pulling you up from the top of your head.
  • Sit Tall.  Establish good posture at your desk: Sit with your back against your chair and feet flat on the floor. When you look at a computer screen, your eyes should be level with the center of it. If they aren’t, raise or lower the monitor.
  • Use Tech to help. Need more help keeping your posture in check? Use your smart phone with a posture training app. Try game changing wearable posture devices like UPRIGHT, a Smart Wearable Posture Trainer with Free IOS and Android App. UPRIGHT is a device that attaches to your upper or lower back and accurately detects when you are slouching with unique technology. It vibrates when you slouch and reminds you to sit upright. Through it’s device and app training program, it allows you to gradually train your core muscles and build muscle memory, so eventually you will be able to maintain an upright posture almost entirely subconsciously. I’ve been using the UPRIGHT device to help me sit tall, you can watch me demonstrate how I use it in this video: Learn more about UPRIGHT at http://www.uprightpose.com/

Now that I’ve got my posture back on point, my body is feeling so much better about life. And I’m about ready to start writing another book! This time, I’ll make sure to remember to sit tall and whistle while I work 😉

Do you work on your posture? What things to you do to make sure you stand tall?

Keep shining my friends,

Caroline

Year of the BOOTY. The Best Songs About Buns, Hun.

As some of you know, Ive been having quite a BOOTYlicious year.

My purpose is to help people live FEEL good lives they love, inside and out. This year, I’ve been working to host monthly fitness events to create a new kind of “night on the town” experience to help active, social people connect with each other and achieve personal fitness goals together.

These events are inspired by doing the things I love — connecting with friends and sharing a night out. My goal is to create unique programs that can fit into participants busy lives so that they can be challenged, rewarded, educated, entertained, pampered, and most importantly, connected, to experience what they enjoy most — fitness and friends.

The most popular events I’ve hosted have been my “BOOTYcamp” series, a butt centric workout class and healthy hour in a nightclub. A big highlight from these special BOOTYcamp fitness events is the music. Because as you probably already know, I love a good beat that makes you want to drop it down low and shake it 😉

Ive been getting ready to host a Birthday BOOTYcamp to celebrate my 31st birthday and have been bumpin the squat motivation music to prep. It gets me energized and excited for a great night out.  I’d love to invite you to join me for a birthday BOOTY party!

RSVP and register to celebrate with me here:  https://www.movewith.com/classes/62828 

Until we meet September 29th, here are a few of my favorite songs about the butt so you can get ready to shake it fast, watch yoself, and show me what you’re workin wit at BOOTYcamp.

Caroline’s BOOTYcamp Music Mix

Dont forget to RSVP! Join me to “drop it like a squat” at my Birthday BOOTYcamp this September 29th, 2016 at City Nights Club. Space is limited. Grab a friend, register now, and lets squat the night away together.

Whats your favorite song to squat to? Let me know what music you love to listen to when you drop it low by leaving me a comment below. 

I hope to celebrate my 31st Birthday BOOTY with you! Till then, keep your squats low and your standards high my friends.

Some BOOTY loves you,

Caroline
