Rebekah, or Bex, is one fit lady who makes it clear that loving life is really the most important thing she could teach anyone. A mother of four beautiful children, she’s a fitness and yoga instructor in south Jersey who—get this—has her own chickens, goats and organic garden, despite living in an urban area. Neat! Read on to find out how she stays happy and healthy, then check out Bex Life for more inside scoop on all things fitness (with some farming, of course).
My favorite way to work out: My best workouts are always with my husband. He has never been a fitness person, and he just started training with me recently. Witnessing his transformation and progress from week to week is so motivating, and it compels me to work harder toward my own goals.
My fitness mantra: There’s no excuse not to workout. There are fitness opportunities everywhere! You don’t need a gym or fancy equipment. You just need you and a little imagination. I’ve gotten amazing workouts just lugging my laundry basket up and down the stairs or running around the playground with my kids.
My go-to fit snack: Bananas! I often joke that I have a four-a-day banana habit, but it’s completely true. I don’t think I could ever get tired of eating them—in smoothies, made into ice cream, with peanut butter, etc. I’ll take them however I can get them!
