I am SO excited to introduce you to our guest-instructors today. I “met” Jayne and Katie from Sweat and Oranges through their beautiful Instagram account and absolutely love their style.
These adorable sisters from Australia are passionate about inspiring others to live a healthy, vibrant life. Jayne is the “sweat” in Sweat and Oranges. She’s a personal trainer that makes fitness fun and approachable. Katie is a nutritionist and a self-proclaimed “green juice addict.”
Their tagline, “healthy is a way of life” is a perfect fit for us here on The Balanced Life. I love their enthusiasm, inspiring photos on Instagram and adorable accents.
(Am I the only one who always secretly wished for an accent?)
We are Jayne (Sweat) a Personal Trainer, kettlebell fanatic and Mum and Katie (Oranges) a Nutritionist, green juice lover and healthy lifestyle enthusiast. Our philosophy is Healthy is a way of life and we aim to live this everyday. We are passionate about eating lots of good quality, nutrient rich, whole foods and moving our bodies in ways that we really enjoy each day. We love spending time in good relationships with our family and friends and believe this is a really important part of healthy is a way of life. Living a healthy life is not something we do on Mondays or leading up to a big event. It’s a lifestyle, something we want to live and breathe and gives us the energy and confidence to always give our best.
My goal with the guest-instructor workouts is to introduce you to new people AND encourage you to step outside your comfort zone every once and awhile. It’s totally fine to stick with your favorite style of workouts day to day but it’s good for the soul to try new things from time to time as well.
You never know when you might find something that you love!
It’s Friday and I need to let loose. Are you with me?
Today’s Self-Care Challenge will help you leave the stress behind and come alive before the weekend begins…
You know those songs that just bring you back? (Destiny’s Child anyone?)
Create a playlist of some old favorites that make you want to sing and turn it up. Dance around the living room, belt it out in the car, loosen up and have some fun!
The point is to remember that it’s okay to let go, it’s okay to be silly, and it’s good for the soul to lighten up.
Jayne leads us through a challenging (but fun!) body weight workout in today’s video. You will most likely break a sweat and laugh as you try to keep up. Have fun with it and be sure to check out Jayne and Katie on their blog / Instagram / Facebook / Twitter.
