Cristina's Secrets To Success

1. Limit Your Meals

"Portion control was a big thing. I used to eat as much as I wanted but when I started my workouts, I knew that I needed to control my eating."

2. Work Out With A Group

"For me joining a workout group made all the difference. Being part of a workout group not only made me more accountable to my workout plans and goals but it also made working out fun. The added motivation by seeing others work hard made me work harder."

3. Make It The First Thing You Do

"I did early morning workouts, so I would always make sure to set at least 3 alarms to make sure that I woke up in time to workout."
