A Fit, Strong and Sexy Morning Routine to Get Moving

Amanda Russell is an Olympic-trained runner, model and founder of FitStrongandSexy.com. She’s also a co-host of an empowering new series aimed at women called The Positive Pushback. In between all this, Amanda took over our Instagram last weekend to share her morning routine and, with a cup of coffee in hand, revealed what gets her moving every day.

1. Are you a morning person?

I used to be a morning person, and in the past couple years, it's like I discovered the beauty of sleeping in and now crave those sleep-in mornings, and have become accustomed to hitting 'snooze'!

2. What’s the first thing you check on your phone in the morning?

First thing I do in the morning is login to my FitStrongandSexy.com online account and get my workout for the day and get mentally ready before my feet hit the ground. Then I get busy before I can even spend time debating it! Emails, messages and more come once I knock out the workout!

3. Does your schedule change on weekdays vs. the weekend?

Yes, I definitely love to sleep in on weekends! It's a total luxury I only recently discovered!
