Lifting Weights

Garrido lifts weights and revels in how good it makes her feel afterwards. She makes a point that working out is about much more than just looking good. "For physical, emotional, mental health," she says. "It's not vanity, it's self-love."


Stationary Bike Sessions


Garrido uses a stationary bike for some at-home cardio sessions. Regular aerobic exercise is linked the wealth of health benefits, experts say. "The American Heart Association recommends adults get at least 150 minutes per week of moderate-intensity aerobic exercise, 75 minutes per week of vigorous aerobic exercise, or a combination of both. That advice is based on federal guidelines for physical activity," says the AHA.


Protein Shakes

Garrido loves protein shakes following a workout. She makes sure her shakes include collagen and contain no added sugar. "The benefit of the protein shake is that it takes longer to digest so it tends to keep you feeling full," says Kate Patton, MEd, RD, CCSD, LD. "If you're trying to lose weight, your body is going to use that protein efficiently to preserve your muscle and break down body fat instead for energy."


She Loves To Run

Garrido absolutely loves running, including marathons. "It may not be as trendy as Pilates or power yoga, but running is still a great aerobic workout to burn fat and reduce stress," says Johns Hopkins HealthCare. "Experts have long linked many health benefits to running. It helps increase HDL ('good') cholesterol, helps with weight loss, builds strong bones, improves balance and coordination, lowers your risk for heart disease and diabetes, and helps improve sleep."


She's a Dancer

Garrido loves dancing, especially Rumba classes. "Apart from the physical aspect of dancing, it also engages several brain areas and promotes neuroplasticity," says University of Essex Health and Fitness Supervisor Leeni Sepp. "Structurally, dancing can increase hippocampal volume, gray matter volume in the left precentral and parahippocampal gyrus, and white matter integrity."
