Lively: How have you been practicing #wellnessfromhome?
Megan Roup: I usually get up around 7:30 a.m. and go through my morning routine: I drink a large glass of lemon water, French press coffee and do a quick meditation on The Sculpt Society app. I then prep for my two live workouts on my app. I go live at 9:30 a.m. EST + 12:30 p.m. EST – giving my community live daily options has been incredibly important to me during this time. In between workouts, I am answering emails and organizing new class content and playlists. It never stops. At night, I try to cook or unwind from work by taking a walk outside with my fiancé. We make sleep a priority and are in bed reading most nights by 10 p.m.
L: Sounds like a busy day! Is there a workout you’re currently obsessed with?
MR: My current favorite workouts on the TSS app have been the gentle sculpt classes under "Beginner Sculpt." My body has been craving some more gentle sculpt workouts and I love how efficient and effective these sequences are.
L: Working out at home can get old real fast – what do you recommend others do to spice things up?
MR: Make a designated workout area in your home or apartment, where you have all you equipment and set up. Also try working out with a friend virtually. I've seen so many videos of friends in different areas using FaceTime while completing the same TSS workout. This way you don't feel alone. It's a great way to stay connected.
L: We’re curious: How do you overcome a workout rut?
MR: My biggest workout tip is to find a workout you love so that it doesn't feel like a chore. Start with small goals like adding in movement 2-3 times a week, which won't feel overwhelming and you'll be more likely to stick to.
