So you’ve busted your ass all spring, literally, to get the perfect bikini body, and now you’re tempted to lounge on the sand drinking margs and dreaming about those summer nights.

What’s the best work out to do beachside?
Beach yoga is AMAZING, so good for the soul and releases great endorphins. A HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout or a beach bootcamp are both great ways to burn some extra calories!

Is there a way to get a good work out in the water?

Is that thing about waiting an hour after you eat to swim true or a myth?

What are the best ways of bringing protein snacks to the beach?

Other than protein shakes, what are some great on the go snacks to keep in your beach bag?
A piece of fruit is a must! Roasted nuts or anything that won’t go bad that needs a fridge. Fresh fruit is my fave, perfect for summer and beach weather!
