Tip of the day
Add some extras. Celebrity trainer Dove Rose of Dove’s Bodies, who trains television stars Sarah Chalke, Sandra Oh and Lisa Rinna, advises her clients to add more challenges to their routine to blast off those final few pounds after the holidays. Says Rose, “We go for hikes and kick it up a notch by adding ankle weights or jumping rope during the hike or stair climbing. Anything different from your normal routine will increase your metabolism and help you feel better and burn more calories.”
