Lots of people feel anxious about going to the gym. What if I’m not wearing the right clothes? What if I don’t know how to do an exercise right and people notice? WHAT IF SOMEONE TALKS TO ME? Daphnie walks us through some common anxieties to help us find a gym life that feels comfortable and safe. Exercise is meant to lower your stress, not increase it!
You asked for it! This week, Joanna and Daphnie answer questions from listeners, covering everything from avocados to spinning to what to do when you can’t motivate yourself to do any exercise besides yoga. Plus, Daphnie gets posh in “What Your Trainer Eats”.
Sports drinks and energy bars are everywhere, but do they actually do what they claim to do? What should we look for when picking out a protein bar, and should we be drinking sports drinks before, during, or after our workouts? Daphnie tells us how to pick the best products and how to save some cash by making them ourselves. Plus, What Your Trainer Eats...in Europe!

There are one bajillion fitness and nutrition apps out there in the phone-iverse. Which ones are worth your time and money, and which ones are a one-way trip to Sadtown? Daphnie and Joanna recommend their favorite apps that make exercise easier (and don’t pile on the guilt). Plus, we take a trip to Buffalo Wild Wings in "Best Choice".
We normal people ask ourselves this all the time: “Do I really need a break, or am I just being lazy?” Whether you’re hitting the wall and thinking of skipping your workout or laid up with an injury and furious that you CAN’T exercise, dealing with frustration is a critical part of getting more awesome. Daphnie gives us some strategies for figuring out when we really need a break and when we need to suck it up and work out, and what to do when we can’t do our normal routine. Plus, things get fruity in “What Your Trainer Eats”.

It feels harder to work out in the winter. It’s cold (duh), it gets dark early, and no one can see your body under all those sweaters anyway. But in the quest for #NoWinterLayer, Daphnie has some suggestions for how to make the most of winter workouts. We talk about how to create an at-home workout, how to make the dreadmill your friend, and what the heck broomball is. Plus, we discuss dessert in What Your Trainer Eats.
Part of becoming more awesome is setting up an exercise routine. (We know, we know. Becoming more awesome is hard and annoying.) What are some good ways to make it easier to make time for working out? How often do we really need to be doing it? And, for us normal people...what if you miss a day and break your routine? Plus, Daphnie talks us through her favorite exercise (here’s a GIF of her doing it forever without stopping!)
