THE GREAT DIVIDE
It’s tough being at the gym feeling less womanly than normal. And it’s most likely because sports bras are taking away the few curves women actually like. Now there’s no need to fret. The Great Divide bra will separate, shape and support during a workout. Plus, it’s got a wide bottom band for extra support AND mesh panels to keep you cool.  It’s about time to have a worry free workout with no more uni-boob.

MORNING YOGA POSES
Morning is the perfect time to get centered and set a clear intention for your day. Right after you wake up, allow yourself a few minutes to relax and enjoy the first moments of quietness. Here’s a great, energizing morning pose to help start your day:
Draw your arms out in front of you, and let your forehead rest on the floor or mat
Kneel on your mat with your knees hips-width distance apart and your big toes touching behind you. Take a deep breath in, and as you exhale, lay your torso over your thighs.
Rest your arms beside your legs, with palms facing up, or try extending your arms out in front of you.
Stay here for 10 long breaths.

STAY FIT ON VACATION
No matter where you go or what you do, vacations are a time for relaxing, indulging and escaping. So it ends up being pretty easy to lose sight of your fitness routines or anything that resembles it, for that matter. But that doesn’t mean all your hard work has to go to waste. Taking steps to stay fit and healthy while you’re gone can fit (see what we did there?) right into your vacay plans. 
Walking through a foreign city can not only be better for your health, but you’ll be able to see parts that would flash by you in a car. Just make sure to stick to safer neighborhoods.
Once you’re in your room, you can do even more with less. Exercises like the plank glute kick back don’t need a lot of space to get a lot of results from a few rounds. 
And remember, they might be made of fruit, but those coladas and daiquiris can pack a caloric punch!!

PLANK GLUTE KICK BACK STEP BY STEP
For and exercise you can do just about anywhere, try several sets of plants with leg raises.
Step 1: Get your body in a plank position with your weight resting on your forearms and toes.
Step 2: From that position, engage your core raising one foot off the floor.
Step 3: Lower your foot back to the ground and raise the other.
Step 4: Continue to alternate raising your feet for 60-90 seconds to complete 1 set.
