Let’s talk fitness! Our fitness routines have changed quite a bit since we met. Staying fit for your Broadway show and ballet company in you early 20’s is a completely different ballgame from today. We’ve gone through different phases: personal trainers, pilates, nutritionists, and weight lifting. And today, we’re sharing that fitness evolution with all of you in the hopes that it will inspire someone listening.
We’re finding as we’re away from New York during the Pandemic that we have to be intentional about walking. In New York, walking is a given. There’s no escaping a walk to the subway, to work, to home, and up a whole bunch of stairs in the process. And now that we don’t have that built in workout, we have to be intentional. And it’s fun! It’s a great way to stay connected to each other and learn our new neighborhood. It just takes planning.
And at the same time, we’re learning to be kind to our bodies and not overdo it. A mirror as a performer can be a double-edged sword. It sheds light on things we want to improve, which is both a motivator and a hinderance to self-esteem. Thank goodness for the following resources:
This week’s SPOTLIGHT ON LOVE comes to us from an anonymous listener:
My wife wants to make a consistent workout routine. And I find that sometimes I’m a bad influence on them because I don’t hold them accountable. What can I do to support them on this goal when it isn’t something I feel I need to do?
We have both found that our happiness is tied to physical movement. What kind of movement makes you happy these days? Running outside? Lifting weights in a home gym? Cardio dance party alone in your apartment? Who are your favorite trainers online? We’d love to hear from you!
