Anonymous said: have you heard of plantar fasciitis? i got this from doing cardio and ive had 3 weeks rest of jumping, cardio and just doing bike riding. its still so bad when i tried bit of running yesturday, i changed shoes and everything. any tips? :(

Have you seen a doctor yet? I would highly suggest going to see a medical professional to rule out any sprains or broken bones. If it is plantar plantar fasciitis, they can give you some ideas for ways to relieve the pain. There are different wraps and heel support insoles you can try as well.

Anonymous said: I'm not sure if i have already asked this: When you lose weight, do you lose fat from areas such as your neck and pubic region. I have been losing weight, but extra fat on my pubic region is an insecurity. Will this change as I lose weight, and is there anything I can do to target this area?

You can lose weight there! It’s hard to say because genetics play a role in how fat is stored in your body, but general fat loss can occur just about anywhere on your body! But as you’ve probably heard before, no, you cannot spot reduce or target fat loss. Just trust that as you lose weight, your body will start to change. Love your body regardless! It is an incredible body and all your own :)

Anonymous said: I have foot surgery coming up, and I'll be down for a month or so/unable to swim until it's healed fully. Any ideas for exercise in the meantime, and possible yoga substitutes for anxiety I can do with one unusable foot?

I would work on upper body lifting! Most of the exercises you can do seated and it will still get your heart pumping and body working. 

I also found this video on practicing yoga without placing weight on your feet. Looks like a good one!

Anonymous said: What benefits to jumping jacks (star jumps) do for your body in terms of appearance? Like, will I get a flat belly, toned legs? etc. Thankss :)

The main benefit of jumping jacks is cardiovascular. They get your heart pumping! They can strengthen, as you are moving all of the large muscle groups, but you will get more out of them by doing modified variations as well. Try jumping jacks while holding hand weights or leg weights. Or when jumping out, try jumping into the squat position, then jumping back up into the starting position. 

All in all, jumping jacks are a form of cardio that you can incorporate into a routine. One singular exercise is not going to give you a flat belly or toned legs - it’s doing full body workouts that are going to get you a toned appearance.
