Anna’s 10 Minute Arms on!

Follow along with Anna Kaiser as she leads a 10 minute arm series on! Here is what Susi May of had to say about the workout:

“We all know that Kelly Ripa is ripped. Her secret weapon? Workouts with trainer Anna Kaiser of AKT in Motion. And here is a 10-minute arm workout from Anna for you to try. You will tone and sculpt sexy, shapely shoulders while working your entire body. Now that’s efficient! Grab a set of dumbbells, between three and eight pounds, and get ready to work your arms, legs, and core.”

Studies Show Dance Training Improves Sports Performance!

An article published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine documented the results of cross-country skiers who used dance training pre-season compared to those who did not. The object of the study was “To evaluate the effect of pre-season dance training on back pain, joint mobility, and muscle flexibility, and on speed and agility in elite cross-country skiers.”

Swedish skiers were observed over a 3 month period in a controlled study and were asked to participate in various exercises that  included “different types of dancing such as ballet, modern dance, jazz dance, and character dance, the aim being to improve balance, coordination, muscle flexibility, and agility.”

After the study concluded, the authors found that “preseason dance training improved the range of hip motion and joint mobility and the flexibility of the spine. These improvements might explain the reduction in ski related back pain in the intervention group.” You can view the whole article by clicking here.

Checking In With Grace: T-Minus 100 Days Until Wedding!

Meet Grace!

“My wedding countdown is officially under 100 days and it’s time to really amp up my workouts. I’ve been working out in the S&M and Happy hour classes every Monday through Saturday, but it’s time to start lifting weights! Anna has given me some great videos for arm workouts so I’ve been trying to incorporate those workouts into my normal cardio routine. After working out so much, I feel like I need to eat something healthy but easy to make.

One of my favorite things to do after a workout is reward myself with a protein shake. I’ve tried a bunch of different proteins (whey, hemp, and pea) and my favorite is definitely unflavored pea protein. Specifically, Now Sports Pea Protein: it’s flavorless, easily digestible, and very smooth. Pea protein has just as much protein as whey or hemp, it’s just my favorite because of the texture and taste; you should give it a try and let me know if you like it!”

Grace’s Pea Protein Shake (with strawberries and pineapple)

1 scoop pea protein

8 ounces water (or coconut water)

1/2 cup strawberries – frozen or fresh

1/2 cup pineapples

Place all ingredients into the blender and blend on the smoothie button until smooth. Perfect for a post workout lunch!
