This week when my personal trainer, Whitney Cole, came to my house, she decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather we’ve been having in California and head outside. After a warm-up walk and some strength-training moves, she eyed a huge hill near my house and told me we were going to run up it. While I admired her optimism, I thought back to last year when I attempted the same feat—and failed miserably. But if I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that Whitney won’t take no for an answer. So sure enough, the next thing I know, I’m chugging up the hill. Whitney told me to break it into two chunks: first focus on making it to the half-way point and then to my street sign at the very top. The strategy worked and I made it all the way! I didn’t have too much time to celebrate though—she had me repeat it five more times. When I can’t get outside I use this killer indoor “hill” workout.
