I get a lot of questions about my exercise routine but, to be quite honest, I don’t really have one. I grew up on tennis, track and soccer and have always considered myself a fairly athletic guy. Prior to this year, my fitness habits had been slacking – I made it to the gym a few times a month and let my running shoes collect dust. Cut to New Year’s Eve and I vowed to coax my athletic prowess out of its long-term hibernation. In January, I partnered up with David Barton Gym to complete a “Look Better Naked” challenge. It may have a silly name but there is nothing silly about the challenge. My particular regimen involved one hour and fifteen minutes of cardio at least 4 days a week, plus 4 days of alternating weight training (Arms/Chest… Back/Butt… Legs/Abs… Chest/Core). Thankfully, I was able to combine cardio and weight training on some of the days but my body hated me by the end of it.
I’m half-way through my “Look Better Naked” commitment and in the three months remaining I plan to attack it at full speed. If you have access to a local gym, take advantage because your health is your most precious gift. If you happen to be one of the lucky urbanites with access to a David Barton Gym, I highly encourage you check it out. The environment at DBG is so incredibly luxe (and quite affordable!) that you’ll never want to go elsewhere. I’ve been so pleased since I switched over… and my body is especially happy now that I’ve joined their Pilates classes.
Time for a quick run, see you on the flip side. Stay stylish, friends!
