KATIA: "I bought a Nike Fuel Band about a year ago because I really didn't have time to get to the gym with any sort of regularity. It motivates me to be more active—I call it my taxi blocker. I walk so much more and even find myself doing jumping jacks at night to hit my goal! I just started getting back into things. I was inspired by Deena (our head of marketing) and her approach. Basically, she preaches that you don't need an hour—you just need to work out intensely for 20 or 30 minutes. So I run down to the exercise room in my apartment building and try to really exhaust myself for half an hour. I also love classes—I am trying SoulCycle, Barry's Bootcamp, and I'll even go to Alvin Ailey Dance Studio for a hip-hop class. But because my schedule isn't the easiest, I would say that I just try to walk everywhere and be aware of how much activity I get in a day... the fuel band really helps!"
HAYLEY: "I try to make small changes to increase the amount of activity I get on a typical day, like walking instead of taking a cab or going a little further to pick up lunch than necessary. On the weekends, I like to run by the river and am always up for trying a new type of exercise class. I just got a Classtivitypassport to help my explorations! On the weekends I have no excuse not to carve out time for serious exercise. My boyfriend and I like to go for runs along the Hudson River. Another trick is making dates with friends that include exercise like a barre class, indoor rock climbing, or a long walk."
