Q&A With Fitness Guru Kacy Duke

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing nationally-renowned fitness expert Kacy Duke who takes a holistic approach to fitness and health. She believes that a healthy lifestyle affects your body inside and out, which includes your skin. She's a member of The Simple Advisory Board. Exercising and eating right aren't punishment; instead, they are nourishment for your body and soul. She is the co-founder of Equinox and some of her celebrity clients are Julianne Moore, Denzel Washington, Mary J. Blige, and Lenny Kravitz.

You can listen to the interview above but here's a recap:

- Kacy believes in balancing 3 levels: the emotional (The Mindset), the spiritual (The Motivation), and the physical (The Movement). Putting all those things together will set you up for success but they all work together.
- Kacy didn't like my word "sin" she said it was too harsh. "We're all human." She recommends setting yourself up to succeed, which I think is my biggest obstacle. I allow for too much room to make excuses.
- She suggests packing your gym bag and bringing it to work with you that way you can't avoid it.
- We also need to keep our skin balanced while working out - no makeup! She loves Simple's Oil Balancing Cleansing wipes (as do I) as a pre or post-workout breather for your skin.
- Eat a healthy snack before and after your workout like a half a banana or a shake.

If you want to find out more, check out Kacy's website or her book or her many DVDs.

What do you think of Kacy's advice?
