Just like it helps to have an exercise plan in mind before you hit the gym, being prepared with the right pre-workout snack will keep you on track with your fitness regimen. Not sure what to eat to fuel up? The rules of eating before exercise can be confusing, so we asked nutrition pros for their go-to recommendations. From healthy carbs for an energy boost to protein for staying power, these expert-approved eats will help you maximize your workout.
Many of us spend our nighttime hours flailing from side to side, flipping from stomach to back, yanking covers, doubling flat pillows, putting on socks, taking socks off, etcetera, etcetera. So it shouldn’t be all that surprising that we wake up feeling a little bit…discombobulated. And even those of us who sleep peacefully need a good stretch after 7 to 9 hours of zzzs—all that time on your back is bound to make you feel a little creaky. Here, a 5-minute stretching routine that will start your day off right.
You don’t need superpowers or an iron will to commit to being healthier this year. Whether your goal is to do 10 push-ups, run a marathon, or simply take the stairs more often—you can get there! Check out these tips to have your fittest year yet.

I’m a physical educator/coach and I’ve been teaching Physical Education for 17 years in Texas. I was at a conference in early June and another teacher told me they had read about Fit Radio and it might be a good app for us to use and safe to play for the kids.
After my 3 hour trial ran out I was SUPER sad! When I figured out that Fit Radio was $28 for the year I decided it was worth the investment. I’ve had Spotify Premium before, but felt like it was a little expensive. I don’t normally buy a year’s subscription to anything yet alone pay for a music service, but Fit Radio was SO dramatically different than anything I had used before.
Since July, I have deleted Spotify and Pandora.
Maybe it’s my ADD, but I like Fit Radio–even just to enjoy music–not necessarily for working out, but all the time.
I plan tell our teachers about Fit Radio because it’s the perfect fit. You can safely play continuous music with clean lyrics without pauses or ads, you can start/stop whenever you want, and there are plenty of genres/mixes/etc. to choose from.
I also plan to use it for my after-school teacher workouts that I do for my staff members. I’m always genuinely excited to play Fit Radio during these classes because I know they will most likely ask what app I’m using. They agree, nothing is more annoying than using Spotify and having an ad interrupt a workout.
Every Summer I try to find a few new games/activities/strategies for my gym – this year Fit Radio is at the top of my list!
Music is HUGE in my gym/classroom so Fit Radio is something that I need everyday.
1.What do you think makes your running mixes so great?
They are made with love. 🙂
2. What is your favorite thing about the last running mix you sent us?
The diversity of the music in the mix!
3. How do you choose the songs you use in your running mix?
I usually try to chose the songs that target around the tempo of the mix I’m making.
4. What is the coolest mashup/remix you’ve used a running mix? What makes it stand out?
I really like the Discotech (1.0) version of “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters. (One of my favorite bands.)
5. What is the difference between your Fit Radio running mix and a playlist heard on other music apps?
The mixing is flawless and keeps you moving to a steady backbeat.
6. Talk about the formula behind your running mix and what goes into creating it.
I really keep the runner / workout in mind when making a mix. I want to make sure they get everything they can out of it.
