The Stairway to Fitness

AdrianneHo_IvyPark-6Sometimes the tools we need to workout are right in front of our face…
AdrianneHo_IvyPark-7 AdrianneHo_IvyPark-8In this case that would be stairs. Most people have access to stairs, which can be used as an excellent source for exercise! Incorporating stair climbing into your exercise routine is not only beneficial for fat-burning but can also give you amazing strength-building results. One of the main benefits of stair climbing is it’s natural ability to increase the muscle mass of your quadriceps and calves. The motion also gives you a slight upper body workout by pumping your arms, but if you add weights, you can increase the upper body benefits.

Studies have shown that a short, high-intensity exercise is just as effective at improving your fitness goals as doing cardio at a long, low-intensity. So whether you have stairs in your home, job, or at your local park, it’s time to grab some dumbbells and hit the nearest steps to challenge yourself to an awesome full body workout!

John Frieda Frizz Free Hair Goals

AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda_Leather-8SweatTheStyle_AdrianneHo_JohnFrieda-3Working out is amazing for your body… but can sometimes wreak havoc on your hair. As someone with naturally wavy hair that’s prone to frizz, my number one issue is keeping it smooth, no matter how I style it. I’m constantly on the search for easy to use products that fit within my active lifestyle to quickly tame frizzy hair, especially since my workout schedule often leaves me with little time after a class or a session at the gym.
SweatTheStyle_JohnFrieda_FrizzEase_SerumI partnered with the John Frieda® Hair Care team to try their Frizz Ease® Extra Strength 6 Effects™ Serum and it quickly became a must have! It works effectively to tame frizzy hair and repel humidity, leaving my hair smooth and glossy, which is essential after the gym! The serum, which has aloe and vitamin e, ensures my hair stays moisturized while defining my curls at the same time. Best of all the application is quick and easy! You just apply one pump into your hands and distribute evenly through the middle and ends of soaking wet hair. You can add more or less, depending on your hair’s length and thickness. Don’t rinse out, just style as usual.

What I love about John Frieda® Frizz Ease® is that not only do they have a wide range of products and treatments created specifically for my hair type, but they also have options to help me achieve whatever style I’m looking for; whether that’s a smooth wave, defined curls, or a sleek and smooth blow out. The products never leave my hair feeling crunchy and sticky.

The John Frieda® Frizz Ease® Extra Strength 6 Effects™ Serum is definitely a new go to. It’s a tried and true favorite I will keep coming back to! I now have a bottle at home and I keep one in my gym bag to help me achieve my #frizzfreehairgoals no matter how hard I sweat!
