APPCESSION INTERVIEW WITH LACEY STONE

What are the benefits of your workouts? Fat Loss, Weight Loss, more toned and sculpted butt, legs, arms, and abs, increased cardio capacity, and my favorite increased confidence. What makes your workouts unique? My workouts are hard, but my point of differentiation is that I’m able to make them fun by infusing games, dance, and jokes within the athletic intervals. I like to keep a running commentary to distract you from the hard work you’re doing. The constant talking is by design not by accident. My workouts are also great because I break every move into 3 levels, beginner, intermediate, and advanced. It doesn’t matter what fitness level you’re at, you can do any of my workouts and get amazing results. What is your take on nutrition? I believe you need to stay away from processed foods, sugars, and alcohol. Stick to 3 meals a day with a maximum of 2 healthy snacks. And my biggest pet peeve is that people need to know the difference between being full and being satisfied. Upon finishing a meal you should never feel full, if you do, it means you ate too much. A huge part of my nutrition training is teaching my clients portion control. You can eat almost anything, but you must learn how much is too much. Tell us about your background. I’ve worked in the fitness industry my entire adult life. I’m a former division I college athlete and I love to teach my students how good your body can feel, not just about losing weight to “look good” on the outside. Through my method, I’m able to... read more

APPCESSION, KRISTIN MCGEE AND HOW IT ALL GOT STARTED!

I was photographing Kristin McGee for the cover of Pilates Style Magazine and she was so friendly, we bonded right away. At the time, I was pregnant and started taking private Pilates sessions with her. I found that Pilates was a great and safer way to exercise while pregnant so I asked her if she would like to shoot some prenatal video and make a prenatal pilates fitness DVD. Apps were just starting to become popular and I said, “hey, let’s make an app, too!”. This way pregnant moms could exercise anywhere on the go not just at home in front of their TV. I knew that the mobility and accessibility of the iPad and iPhone would merit themselves to fitness training videos and information about nutrition and better health. That was how Appcession came into being. Our first app together “Yoga and Pilates with Kristin McGee” featured fitness videos focused on individual body parts. Arms, abs, arms wrist and shoulders. So within the Kristin McGee App you can decide which parts of your body you want to work out the most and purchase just that video within the app. You can literally mix and match your own Kristin McGee Yoga and Pilates workout on the fly and use it where ever you are. Each video is a precise 10 minute workout giving you the best possible fitness on your busy schedule. Kristin now has over 20 fitness videos to choose from across two different apps. Over 200,000 people worldwide just like you have downloaded Kristin’s Appcession iPad and iPhone apps, and workout with Kristin McGee’s Yoga and Pilates everyday.... read more

THREE FREE WORKOUTS WITH DARA TORRES AND ANDY O’BRIEN

Sign up to receive three free workouts with Dara Torres and Andy O’Brien! We first met Dara Torres on Twitter and knew immediately we had to capture her style and grace while helping people like you get fit and reach for the Gold. We thought going celeb was the next step in growing the company.  We liked her as a role model for women, older women, mommies, and men training for triathlons. She brought in her Olympic fitness trainer, Andy O’Brien to create the workouts and she demonstrates them in the video.  All the workouts are what she did training for Beijing where at 42 years old she stole America’s heart with her athleticism and won numerous medals. The main focus of this Fitness App is core, stretching, toning and abs of course.  You will build endurance as you workout through simple easy to learn exercises. Dara isn’t twenty anymore, and the longevity of her body is an inspiration to us all. So, her workouts are not about bench-pressing as much weight as possible.  Dara is all about endurance. Creating stretching routines before and after working out.  Her older body needs more time to rest and recover, so these workouts were created with that in mind. Dara eats super healthy. The app also includes her Olympic meal plan. Easy to make recipes that you can prepare yourself and eat like a champion. Andy trains all of the top elite Canadian NHL Hockey atheletes, and is a supreme fitness genius and the exercises he completes with Dara are very easy to follow and understand.   By using this app you... read more
