Pilates instructor to most popular celebrities, Kit Rich also had issue dealing with weight loss like we mere mortals until she discovered she was doing a workout routine that wasn't sustainable.
Try out this routine that totally works
Kit says that her mantra of "three miles or 30 minutes, every day" is what helped her finally break free from weight fluctuations and keep the pounds off for good.
Her solution was one that helped her lose 30 pounds and one that she still shares with her students today, whether she's teaching a private class in LA or going on tour with a musician client.
Her tip is simply to make your routine manageable.
More specifically, Kit says that her mantra of "three miles or 30 minutes, every day" is what helped her finally break free from weight fluctuations and keep the pounds off for good.
This means, run, walk, or hike your way to three miles a day, or do a 30-minute workout instead.
"I really do believe wholeheartedly that the middle road is the way to go," she says. "Anything extreme is not long-lasting."
As a former athlete, this manageable mantra helped keep Kit from burning out on her workouts when she was trying to lose weight.
"I come from a background of injury, and I had knee surgery, so you can't tell me to go and take some crazy bootcamp class," she says. "Because my knee will start to hurt, and then what's going to start to happen, I'm going to freak out that I won't be able to do that for the rest of my life."
Instead, just telling yourself to do something little every day can help you get a hold of your health and your weight-loss goals.
"Women need to feel empowered," she says. "They need to feel like what they're doing is something that they somewhat enjoy and that they can have a grip on. And that's why I believe in this three or 30 rule."
So try this priceless tip out and tell us how it worked for you.
