Get Fit | Park Bench Workout


Trying a little something new with this latest edition of the Get Fit feature... Hold onto your seats (literally) and keep reading for S&P's very first exercise video featuring my snazzy new gear from the Sofia by Sofia Vergara activewear line.  Not only do I have some helpful fitness tips for you today, but I'm also sharing a fun interview with the lovely leading lady herself, so be sure to check out all of the great goodies below!I get asked about my exercise regimen quite a lot, and I thought it might make sense to post a quick and easily customizable interval circuit that you can complete with just two handy tools: a standard bench at your neighborhood park, and a simple stopwatch app or interval timer.  Excited to have you watch the quick clip and let me know what you think... if you like what you see, please share with your friends, and be sure check out my "Fitness" pinterest board full of more inspiration!

Now, let's have a quick chat with Sofia about her latest project... 

Hi Sofia - You're so fabulous!  :)  Can you tell me a little bit about why you decided to design an activewear collection?
"My Kmart line is all about giving women affordable fashion that makes them look and feel good.  I wanted to design this line so all sizes and shapes of women can find activewear at an affordable price and still look great when they are working out."
I totally agree... The better you feel while exercising, the more you'll do it!  What do you think is the most important piece of clothing to ensure a good workout?
"I think the whole outfit has to be comfortable and make you feel good.  You have to be able to move to get the benefits of the workout."
What is your current favorite way to exercise?
"I don't really like exercising, but lately I have been doing a lot of spinning classes and it is a great workout. I also workout with Gunnar, my trainer, and he keeps me motivated. "
Spinning is definitely one of my favorites, as well.  Are there any workouts that you dread but try to keep doing because of the great results?
"I dread all of it! It's not fun, but you have to do it to stay healthy."
I have to say I love a lady who prioritizes a healthy lifestyle, while keeping a realistic approach. :)  If you're interested in trying out this new Sofia by Sofia Vergara activewear line for yourself, it's available exclusively at Kmart - Be sure to also check them out on twitter and facebook to stay posted on upcoming collections and events.
Now I'm turning the tables and asking YOU the questions:  Have you started working on toning up for Spring yet?  Do you have any favorite current workouts that you can't live without?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, so feel free to share!
