Could it be true? Is summer weather FINALLY on the horizon?! The winter has been ROUGH for most of us, no matter where we live, and many of us are anxious to bask in the glow of the sunshine and head out to enjoy the joys of the warmer weather. You may find your desire to get out of the gym and into the fresh air growing stronger and hopefully you’re inspired to set goals for fitness, health and activity.
But we have to be careful of setting the bar too high and not setting attainable goals for ourselves. Sometimes if we push too hard we end up hurting ourselves. We’ve got Fitness Expert Jamie Krauss Hess here to help us get our summer body the healthy way!
Named one of the “seven fittest couples on Instagram” by Women’s Health, Jamie Krauss Hess is a New York City #fitmom and the co-creator of @NYCfitfam. Daughter of TV journalist, Joan Lunden, Jamie grew up watching her mother inspire others to live their healthiest lives and committed to following in her footsteps. She immersed herself in the NYC fitness scene while working as a lifestyle publicist, a career that positioned her squarely on the front lines of wellness trends. Her husband, George, proposed to her on a treadmill at Barry’s Boot Camp and from there, they began documenting their fitness adventures on social media, including Jamie’s pre/post-natal fitness journey and their road to the 2016 NYC marathon. Their audience follows along as they strive to incorporate fitness holistically into their lives as parents, with content focused on exercise, nutrition, and mindfulness. Jamie is a featured contributor on MindBodyGreen, and @NYCfitfam has been featured on The Daily Burn, the New York Post, Refinery29, Women’s Health, and more.
Among the topics Jamie will discuss are:
- Making health a priority during our busy summer schedules
- The importance of hydration and nutrition
- How to keep active on sweltering summer days
- Fitness advice for every member of the family
- And more!
