You know in People magazine, the ‘They’re Real People Too” section where it shows celebs going to the grocery store or buying diapers or picking their nose? Ya, we love to scan through and relate (or judge) – because let’s face it, we all have the extra time to idly flip through magazines (ok we don’t but somehow we do.)
Well in honor of our little celebs in the Fusion world – yes you guys are whether you want to admit it or not (!) – we’re starting our own version: Fusion Instructors: They’re Real People Too! Don’t worry we won’t (or will we?) be hiding in the bushes with our iPhones waiting to catch you eating junk food. We just want to know – what do you do to stay healthy?
We depend on our instructors here at Fusion, basically, for our sanity (not to pressure them or anything.) No matter what sort of mood we’re in when we walk through the doors, we look to them for inspiration – whether it’s making us laugh, pushing us to drop lower or jump higher or hold that damn leg up for longer – we have a lot of expectations placed on their shoulders. We expect to walk out of our workout a happier, saner, nicer person. With a tighter ass!
So where do they get their energy? The happy vibes they’re always shooting all over the studios? What do they eat/drink/do to be such amazing sources of inspiration for all of us, constantly looking up to them?
Stay tuned for all sorts of fun stuff as we collect tips, lists, recipes and more to pick their brains on staying healthy, being real (and honest) and creating an even tighter community of like-minded, healthy, happy, Sweaty Sisterhood Fusionistas.
Fusion Instructors: They’re Real People Too!
-Eating Healthy on the Fly-
With the start of school and back to routine, we know all of you have dusted off your meal planners, spent half of a paycheck at Costco and are ready to go with healthy dinners, lunches for the kids and even the valiant goal of making hot breakfast twice a week. Right? Ok we know some of you Martha Stewart’s out there are, but for the rest of us, time will occasionally get the best of us and we’ll end up stuck – starving, in a rush, and tempted by the ol’ drive thru. So what do our instructors do when in the same boat?
“Chipotle bowl – black beans, lettuce, pico, chicken or steak. Squeeze lemon juice over it – yum!” – Jos
“#1: The Mixx is always a go-to on the run. Pick a salad that looks appealing to you then customize it! I love either the roasted beets or the turkey chop. I then ask for the higher calorie add-ins, like the cheese or nuts, on the side. That way I can add as much or as little. Also leave the fatty fat dressing on the side and get comfy with something healthier and lighter! Just pay attention to what you are getting. #2: Whole foods has great on the go options. The salad bar, sushi area, avocado and veggie spring wraps. When in doubt, stick to the raw veggies and lean proteins so you are staying on track.” – Megan Z
“When we hit Chic-Fil-A, the Asian Chicken Salad is my favorite!”- Liz W
“I am a t.Loft junkie. I get a warrior juice, lentil salad and 2 sunbutter balls almost every day! :) I also love a tuna salad sandwich with lots of veggies when I’m on the go from Great Harvest Bread Co. Two more staples in my diet are Spin! Pizza and the Mixx. At Spin, I get a full greek salad with no feta and add chicken. At the Mixx, I get the Main Street Chop Chop with no cheese and add red peppers.” – Betsy W
