"If I’m protecting a blowout during class, I always put my hair in a bun. After class, I apply dry shampoo and blow-dry just the roots. This lets my blowout last a few days without getting in the way of my exercise routine."
"No matter how tired I am, I’ll never go to bed without washing my face and applying a superhydrating moisturizer. Your skin repairs itself at night, so this regimen is key for looking rested and youthful."-Aleah Stander
"If your workouts are high-intensity and frequent like mine, keep glucose tablets in your gym bag. When you train hard, your body burns through glycogen faster and more rapidly. I am naturally hypoglycemic, and it gives me peace of mind to know that I have the tablets if I experience a drop in blood sugar. You can buy them at any pharmacy."
"Never underestimate the power of a good nap! If you’re a career-driven woman—like most of us are—you put in long hours. If I have a responsibility very early in the morning, and also an event that night, a nap that lasts 45 minutes to an hour helps me stay on my game." -Alicia Miller
"You’ll never see me—on or off the bike—without a bottle of water. But we all know how “flat” water can get. I switch it up and grab a tall, cold glass of S.Pellegrino with a lemon or lime. I love to drink a glass before dinner because the bubbles fill me up. It’s the perfect way to keep hydrated! It’s also my drink of choice when I’m out (after a vodka soda, of course). More bubbly, less calories!"
"Because we all know how much sweating goes on in a Flywheel indoor cycling class, I end up washing my hair more often than I would like to. Overwashing dries out the hair and strips it of its essential oils. To replenish and repair, I make an all-natural hair mask using a whole avocado (mashed) and about two to three teaspoons of olive oil. I cover my hair for about 10 minutes and then rinse!" -Annabelle Torgman

"A great way to relieve muscle tightness and improve circulation is foam rolling. If you don’t have a foam roller, a tennis ball will work! When you find a tender spot, roll back and forth on it a few times to stimulate tight fascia."
