I am so excited to announce that I have partnered with Yoyo Mats to create my very own Cruise Control yoga mat!
I am a huge advocate of using yoga as a form of fitness. It stretches your body, makes you set an intention for the day, allows you to forget about anything that’s not on the mat, gives you confidence, and is a good workout that allows you to get in tune with your body.
Aaron Thornton, my longtime friend and colleague, has made one of the most innovative yoga mats this world has seen.
You guys need a Cruise Control mat! Even if you don’t do yoga, it’s a perfect addition to your home if you need a space to do your Cruise Control workouts along with me at home. You can bring the “gym” or yoga studio to your home with style and the most advanced mat on the market. It is most definitely Cruise Control approved, haha!
If you’ve done yoga, you know how annoying it is to carry the mat to and from your home to the car to the yoga studio and back again. I roll it up and it rolls around in my car and then I have to re-roll it before i go into the studio and then after yoga I have to roll it all up once again to take it home. It’s a lot of rolling and re-rolling when I’m trying to be as zen as possible before, during, and after my practice.
Yoyo mats, has an incredible design that actually self roll. Can you believe it?! It will stay tightly rolled when you’re carrying it or leaving it in your car. It also will lay flat while you are practicing or doing your stretches or your Cruise Control moves, no curled up edges!
The Yoyo mat is made of an eco-friendly, skid-resistant top layer that provides superior grip even in wet and sweaty conditions.
One of the things I am most looking forward to in 2019 is getting my Vasper system all set up so that I can get my body in top shape and help my clients as well. My good friend and colleague, Tony Robbins, raves about this product, so I just had to check in out.
The Vasper System combines compression, liquid cooling, and interval training to drive your body’s production of growth and recovery hormones, delivering the most significant benefits of high-intensity exercise in an efficient and low-impact 21-minute workout.
Can you believe in just 20 minutes you can get all of the following benefits:
Improved Sleep Quality
Increased Strength and Endurance
Accelerated Metabolism and Weight Loss
Bolstered Cardiovascular Health
Optimized Hormone Production
Augmented Glucose Metabolism
Improved Cognitive Function
This one system, in 21-minutes, really targets all the things I want to focus on in my body as I’m getting closer to 50.
Most of my clients, celebrity and as a part of my Facebook or membership ask me, “how can I sleep better?”, “how do I lose weight faster?”, “how do I decrease the intense stress levels in my body and mind?”, these can all be answered by one simple solution… Vasper.
I always say that exercise is the most underutilized form of antidepressant, and it’s true! When you workout, your body releases endorphins which in turn, make you happy!
So if you are reading this and wondering the same things my clients are, then check out the links below to find a Vasper near you.
Now, I know I like to promote that you can workout without a gym or any equipment, but sometimes I like to use machinery when I know how beneficial it is to my body.
I know as i am nearing to 50, I am noticing a lot of changes in my body, and Vasper can help me to tackle so many of these things and stay feeling energized, strong, healthy and more!
Vasper is a revolutionary fitness & health technology that is designed to stimulate the bodies production of anabolic hormones. When we work out at a high intensity our bodies production of anabolic hormones increases which is arguably the single greatest benefit of exercise. These hormones help rebuild our body and affect every system with in it- energy, sleep and metabolism ect.
Vasper works on 3 scientifically proven principles – Vascular Compression, cooling and interval training. The synergy between these 3 components enables you to mimic the physiology of an intensive 2 hours work out and stimulate the same beneficial response from the endocrine system while completely mitigating the regular wear, tear, time effort and stress response associated with an intensive work out.
The vascular compression cuffs on the Vasper system wrap around the quadriceps and biceps, filling up with very cold water and squeezing the limb throughout a 21 min interval based work out. The pressure reduces the superficial blood flow to the muscle which results in a rapid high concentration of lactic acid and other metabolites. The strength of this concentration is the strength of the signal that the brain receives to restore the muscle to the pre exercise condition, initiating the downstream anabolic effect which is extremely beneficial to overall health and fitness.
The cooling element of Vasper enables the user to perform at a higher level and with greater comfort. When we exercise we generate heat and then sweat to cool down. The process of perspiration involves blood being shunted from the muscle to the surface of the skin, when this happens we lose blood volume and O2 levels with in the muscle and begin to fatigue and loose performance due to heat stress. By keeping the body cool through out the 21 min session the user is able to perform at a higher level while lowering the perceived level of exertion through out the work out.

How many times have you reached for a bag of potato chips or a Snickers bar when you’re stressed, depressed, or anxious? Or maybe you just couldn’t stop yourself from continuing to eat even when you knew you were full?
Now, think about how many times you were feeling those exact same feelings, but turned to exercise instead of food? If you’re like most people, the answer is probably not many.
We’ve all done, I’ve done it. We turn to food before exercise as a coping mechanism. We cannot blame ourselves, but we can arm ourselves with the knowledge of the power of exercise.
We tend to overeat and eat the wrong things when we are facing tough times. We rarely over exercise. We don’t exercise at all. BUT, exercise is extremely powerful in changing your mood. In fact, by simply elevating your heart rate and breaking a sweat you can beat stress, lift your mood, fight memory loss, and function at a higher level. Who wouldn’t want all of that?
I have incorporated exercise into my daily routine, and it has been life changing. I like to do it in the morning because I feel more focused for the day, but you can do it whenever you want…the first step is to just do it! I really encourage you to stop and think the next time you are having a bad day or are feeling down and just want to grab the junk food. Try going for a brisk walk or jog, go hiking, play tag with the kids…something to get you moving. See how you feel afterwards. I think you may be surprised.
