1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
MB: I took a huge leap of faith when I came to NYC from Romania after I turned 21. I found a job fast and began my love affair with New York. Since coming here, I have become seriously interested in fitness, diet and wellness (just like most New York women!!)
2. How did you end up working at Lucille Roberts?
MB: I started working at the Lucille Roberts Grand Central location in July 2011 as a front desk girl. I really saw how much women struggle with weight loss and dedication. I began to love being part of an encouraging environment, it made me feel good about myself – just sharing a tip about exercise or diet meant a lot to me.
3. What are some personal fitness goals you have and how do you achieve them?
MB: My goals are, obviously, to stay in great shape, keep my body fat really low, work more on my posture and flexibility and become more muscular in my lower body. I try to take at least 2 High Intensity Interval Training classes a week, 1 Pilates session and I try to use weights every time I go to the gym. The muscle I get from doing a little weights each time helps burn off all the chocolate I eat. I’ve also learned that the most valuable piece of equipment is your body weight. I used to hate exercises like push-ups, side-planks, and burpees, but now I’m addicted to these tough exercises. They help you build strength in both upper and lower body while completely toning up these areas. Between these series, for cardio, I jump rope.
Do you want to lose weight? How about build muscle? Maybe you just want to intensify your workout so you can spend less time at the gym and more time living life? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then boot camp is for you!
Hard but not impossible, boot camp is the most effective way to whip anyone’s body into shape. It incorporates plyometrics or “jump training,” which increases speed and power by using a large amount of muscle power in a short period of time, and “interval training,” which alternates high intensity exercise with a low intensity recovery. Some examples of boot camp exercises include power lunges, plyo pushups, burpees and jump squats. These moves are simple to do, but complex enough to keep your muscles engaged and working overtime.
