Read her Q&A to learn more:
Q: Tell us a bit about NGR. Who or what did you have in mind when developing the brand?
A: When developing NGR I was thinking about busy people – Moms who have no time for themselves, business executives who are always in hotel rooms, and people who just don’t have the time or money to spend on the gym. I love the gym, but not having access to one doesn’t have to limit anyone – you can get and stay fit on your own, with things you already have, with just a few minutes a day. No Gym Required is about making conscious choices on a daily basis to be the best and healthiest you, no matter where you are.
Q: What are your five fitness wardrobe essentials?
A: Polar Heart Rate Monitors. They strap right on your wrist, they’re easy to use, and you can track your heart rate & calorie progress no matter what you’re doing for exercise.
NGR Shoes (of course!) The shoes have removable weights (up to 2 pounds) so you can burn up to 50% more calories on the go.
A really supportive sports bra. Polar makes a great one with the heart rate monitor inside it. I use it all the time.
Metal-free hair ties. I’m always using them for my long hair, and keep a few around just in case.
Cropped yoga pants. They make your butt look amazing and you can do almost anything in them!
Q: What’s a secret-weapon piece of shapewear you’d recommend for women looking to hide trouble spots?
A: My wardrobe “secret weapon” is to pick clothes that are flattering to your body. I think that a healthy diet, a good fitness routine, and choosing clothes based on what looks good on you – not what’s trendy – is the best way to go.
