Whether you're a full-time student, a stay-at-home mom, or have full-time career, it's easy for real life to get in the way of healthy habits. That's why it's so important that you prioritize your time and make healthy eating and exercise a top priority. Otherwise, daily distractions like checking your email, calling your friends, cleaning the house, watching your favorite tv show etc, will eat up your time. And before you know it, the day has passed. This is why I love the workouts that I'm sharing with you. As a busy mom of four young children, I don't have the luxury of going to a gym or spending an hour a day to exercise. I need my workouts to be ...

The fog has lifted and I finally made it out to the Barsha Park. This park is amazing... and I give you a guided tour with the help of one of the gardeners at the end of my video. As for the workout, it's a timed challenge. You must complete the workout in the fastest time possible, but of course without compromising form. I recommend that everyone keeps track of their reps, sets and time for future reference by writing down your results. Remember that quality is better than quantity and you'll only be cheating yourself. It's ok if you can't do all of the repetitions or sets. The most important thing is that you push yourself just a bit harder ...

I've finally figured out a way to convert my video from my new HD camera to a version that my computer can process. I just can't seem to keep up with technology!! Anyone else feel the same way? Anyway, this workout is great for those who don't have equipment or alot of time to exercise. It only takes 12 minutes and it will work your full body. A beginner version is also included. I appologize in advance if the quality of the video seems a little off but it's the best solution I could find at the moment and I just wanted to share the workout with you as quickly as possible. It's still a great workout nonetheless and you'll definitely work up a good sweat.&...

My trip to Lebanon was a success. I managed to check off everything I had on my "to do" list. Yes, I'm a list girl! And I especially love checking things off when they get done. I really wanted to film a workout in Lebanon but I ran out of time unfortunately. However, I was able to capture the beautiful mountains of Lebanon, which I share with you at the end of my video.
The workout today is a 20-minute full body interval workout and you don't need any equipment, except for a mat or a towel to protect your knees. If you're a beginner, I do show variations in my video as well. Give it a try and I'd love to know how you did. The complete workout ...

I'm travelling tomorrow so I decided to do another 12-minute countdown workout. I have alot of last minute details to sort out so I needed a quick and effective workout. It goes by fast so make sure you push as hard as you can to make the best out of the workout. The lying leg rotations killed me on the last set, so I had to modify the exercise to be able to continue. Remember that proper form is more important than quantity. Don't risk proper form for the sake of doing more repetitions.
It wasn't as cloudy today so I decided to show you the skyline of Dubai from my roof top again. This time you can see as far as Burj Khalifa - the world'...

Today I turned 32 and I'm so grateful for all of the birthday wishes from all of my friends and family all over the world. I can honestly say that I'm happy. As I reflect on this past year, I realize how much I have to be grateful for. My wish this year is to spread the word of health and touch people's lives on a much larger scale. I hope that you will help me make my wish come true by focusing on your own needs. Make it a priority to treat yourself and your body with care and respect. Surround yourself with positive forces, eat wholesome foods, exercise regularly, make time to enjoy life, and reap the benefits of good health.

Today I decided to shoot my workout outside since the Dubai heat is slowly beginning to fade. I have another awesome workout that will leave you sweaty and re-energized in only 16 minutes! This 2-part workout works full body strength, balance, agility, and cardio. Most people neglect to perform balance exercises but it's very important that you stimulate and strengthen your stabilizer muscles. These are your foundation muscles... it's like building a house. A strong body must have a strong foundation to be able to support itself. This workout is an awesome overall workout that doesn't need any equipment or alot of space. If you're a ...
