Q: How can I stick to a workout routine in the summer?
A: If your summer entails travel that disrupts your regular fitness routine, commit to spending 15–20 minutes a day doing a few simple body-weight exercises such as the ones we do in our barre classes. They are efficient and effective and will keep your fitness goals on track. For example, hit the floor and plank it out! Hold your plank for 90 seconds. For more of a challenge, lift each leg off the floor to do a single-leg plank. Or use a chair to walk your feet out and place your hands behind your seat for tricep dips.
