Simone invited us to work out with her at her fave outdoor space, the Hudson River Park, in New York City.
We asked Simone:
Q: How does Body by Simone work?
A: The exercises are super- specific and isolate particular muscle groups so you see change quickly. I call it “the shrink workout.” Your waist, hips and thighs narrow, and your arms and upper body become quite defined. I focus on high reps because that means you’re totally fatiguing each muscle group. This is how you see change in a muscle’s strength and structure: low weight, high reps.
Q: If you kept a food journal, what would a typical day look like?
A: It starts with a protein shake of almond milk, mixed berries and a cup of green tea for breakfast. Then hummus and rice crackers for my mid-morning snack. Probably a turkey burger and kale salad for lunch, and a handful of almonds or peanut butter on celery sticks in the afternoon. Dinner consists of a chicken breast and spinach salad with avocado and some walnuts, and a small piece of chocolate or a sweet biscuit with a herbal tea for dessert.
What you need for this workout: Resistance band, Pilates ball.
