Hey guys! I am extremely excited to announce the issue I did with Women’s Health is on stands right now! The magazine did a great job in getting my truth across their glossy pages. All the time I get questions from fans about my supposedly-strict diet regimen, what type of cardio I do and for how long. Honestly, that’s just not my jam. I don’t want to be tethered to those types of routines. I want to participate in this wonderful life with fun, happy energy and delicious food. These qualities, I believe, do not come from counting calories or clocking hours sprinting on a hamster wheel.
Although I do share some of my most effective moves, this article isn’t just about attaining a dancer’s body — it’s about having a dancer’s mentality. There’s so much more to the benefits of dance than a taut tush. The elated emotional charge you get from letting yourself go, moving your body freely while expressing how you feel in a positive way… that’s what makes you feel like a dancer! And when you feel good, you look good. They really do go hand in hand.
If you’re moving your body for the sole purpose of being skinny, you’re missing out on so much more. Get your friends together for a game of dodgeball; you’ll laugh so hard you won’t even realize you’re getting toned from head to toe. Or, hit up the great outdoors and go for a hike! This is always where I get the most mental clarity.
Strong and smiling beats size all day, every day.
