Bloomingdale's Active Pop-Up Shop


Last week Friday, I partnered up with Elaine Yu from Simply Chic Styling to put together an Active Pop-Up Shop at Bloomingdale's in the Short Hills Mall. The day was filled with fitness and fashion tips for customers to try on their own.

I shared these moves with customers last week. They are excellent during the day when you find yourself waiting for your kids, husband or girlfriends and you want to find a way to squeeze in some fitness!  

Reverse Leg Lunges with a Scarf: This move can be done at any time and the perfect way to morph fashion and fitness!  While holding a scarf firmly in both hands shoulder width apart aligned with your shoulders raises your arms overhead without locking your elbows.  Keeping your arms straight and holding the scarf with tension step back on your right leg for a reverse lunge. Make sure your legs are at a 90-degree angle and your knees are not surpassing your toes. Step back in and repeat on the other side.  

Do this for 10 reps (5 on each side).                                                                          

Calf Raises: All you need is a pair of stairs or a curb to increase the intensity of a workout. If you are looking to do this exercise more discreetly you can do this move with no elevated surface at all.

Weights in the car: Stuck in the car waiting for your kids or killing time between your next afternoon meet up? Every minute counts especially when operating on a busy schedule.  Keep a pair of 1-3 lb weights in your car for a quick set of bicep curls, straight arm deltoid raises or even chest presses if you recline the seat!

Upgrade your errands!  Keeping ankle weights in your car are a great way to make grocery shopping and picking up dry cleaning a little bit more challenging.  Other options include a weighted vest that you can increase and decrease the weight from day today.  Feeling bashful? Camouflage these fit essentials with a stylish zip up hoodie or a pair of slouchy activewear bottoms.
