I love to see a young girl go out and grab the world by the lapels. Life’s a bitch. You’ve got to go out and kick ass. – Maya Angelou
QUOTE OF THE MONTH

EVERYDAY KIT

Listen up! Not just fitness… Oh, la la! Let me spill the secret how I keep my lips soft and tinted during the workouts and classes. This is why this is the BEST fitness product! Tinted Lip Balm by Trish McEvoy won my heart forever. Keep your lips tinted even when you drink water, sweat, and towel off after the next cardio drill. Must HAVE! The only downside is that it comes in only 1 color, but this color fits me!

Featured Question:  Why HIIT is so HOT?

Answer:

It’s summer, and it’s HOT! What is HOT on the fitness market currently?
HIIT workouts! Why? Let’s see!
HIIT represents a combined training that includes strength/toning exercises with equipment or without one mixed with the cardio drills. So you get to dip into two worlds: carbs and fats. When you are in the middle of a cardio exercise, you are burning your fats, and during the strength workout, your body is using carbohydrates for its energy fuel. It allows you to keep burning calories for 48 hours AFTER a 1-hour workout.
A perfect example can be: Weighted lunges, triceps kickbacks, sumo squats – 45 sec each exercise with a 30 sec cardio drill at the end of each set (like high knees or jumping jacks or burpees).





Do you want to see what the HIIT is all about and train with me? I am inviting you to join my fitness and wellness group “Get.Reinvented Club: Workout, Lose Weight, and Eat Healthy with Katia KITA” 

NUTRITION KIT Hosted by Gilah Berman 



Featured June Question: What are the pros and cons of Juicing?

Answer: 

Healthy benefits
Fruits and vegetables are naturally healthy. Juicing is a good idea because you have the ability to concentrate the nutrients into a cup. When the juice is fresh, all the enzymes and nutrients are available and the fresh fruit or vegetable in its juice from is more digestible. 

Unhealthy benefits
Juicing can often involve too much fruit. According to the USDA, adults (ages 31-50) need only 2 cups of fruit per day. Fruit is naturally high in fructose (fruit sugar) and can promote weight gain and elevate triglycerides if consumed in excess. When juicing, one should focus more on vegetables that naturally contain lower fructose levels. Juicing with reasonable portion sizes of fruits and vegetables (USDA recommends 2 cups of fruit/2-3 cups of vegetables) should be fine unless the person has an underlying disorder with high acid foods. However, juicing with excessive quantities of high acids fruits or vegetables can cause stomach upset. 

Dietitian’s Tip:
Combine three parts vegetable to one part fruit. Instead of high-sugar blend such as raspberry/strawberry/pineapple/orange, try strawberry/spinach/carrot/celery instead. It won’t be as sweet, but it will be much lower in sugar and calories.

BAY AREA LOCALE

For a while, I have been stuck in limbo trying to find a decent coffee shop. Decency in my interpretation means reliable wi-fi, tasty coffee, laid back space and quiet zone. I came across this local gem just recently. Check out  1 Oz Coffee for their fantastic coffee drinks, cool vibes, and quiet space. Lay back on the green belt (yes, they have this one too!), relax in a reclined chair or work hard at a high table giving it your best! Big open space, large seating area, and the most relaxed environment will make you come back!

Located in the center of a business park, this place brings the balance to a working zone with its coffee served on the go! The only downside – only a few outlets are available, so bring a portable battery if you have one, for your laptop.
Open Tue to Fri from 8 am to 2 PM, and Sat/Sun from 9 am to 3 PM. On the weekend it is a perfect idea to bring your kids here and play with them in the open area while sipping on a hot espresso or cocoa!
