Relative to boosting your fitness and easily squeezing workout sessions into your daily routine, he recommends that you “Work out in bed when you wake up, because doing push-ups or planking on an unstable surface will train your body to fire up quickly.

Ashley Pitt is a San Francisco-based personal trainer, group fitness instructor and the writer behind popular healthy living blog, A Lady Goes West. To help you get in shape before New Year’s Eve, she says HIIT workouts are ideal. “As far as the most effective workouts?

When it comes to effective studio workouts, those that combining cardio and weights with heart-rate monitoring, because you get a little bit of everything in one class and can monitor how hard you are working for certain amounts of time.”
Los Angeles-based celebrity trainer Danny Musico (who has worked with Jessica Simpson, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Demi Moore) trains with his proprietary HDT (High Definition Training) method at his ABH Gym in Beverly Hills, California. To help you get in shape before New Year’s Eve, Musico offers a few suggestions about easy diet changes that make a big difference. He says, “Eliminate coffee, sports drinks and soda: It’s no surprise that liquid calories are one of the simplest places to trim and lose weight/reduce toxins, but studies show that drinking a single can of diet soda each day can increase your risk of having a heart attack or stroke.” He also recommends that you “cut down your first plate: If you’re at a party or eating buffet style, it can be very tempting to overeat. One of the easiest things to do is to tell yourself that you can always go back to the buffet line for seconds, but start with a small plate. Chances are that you won’t need a second plate.”
