She Didn't Start Exercising Until Later in Life
January didn't really get her sweat on until after she became a mom. "After I had my son, Xander, I wanted to feel strong because my body had changed so much. As he got bigger and I was hauling around a 20- or 30-pound toddler, my lower back gave out and I saw my shoulders starting to curl and hunch. I wanted to do something for my posture and core strength," she explained to Shape.
She Loves Pilates
January's workout journey started with barre classes, which led her to what is now her go-to workout. "Then a friend told me about Lagree Pilates," she told Shape. "I've been doing it two to four times a week for the past year now, and I've gained weight because I've put on muscle. I've gone up a size in clothes, but I feel like I look better naked." While she admits it is "quite difficult" she has found that it's the only thing that makes her feel stronger, "and I'm loving it."
She Is Into Group Fitness
January likes to take group fitness classes because the "music is good" and the routine varies so "it doesn't get boring." In her class there are 10 women, "and I like having women on both sides of me to push me," she told Shape. "When I did the private Pilates lessons a couple of years ago, I just saw myself getting lazy with it because there wasn't that drive for competition. For me, that's what's motivating. If there's someone strong next to me, I definitely want to up my game. I find myself looking forward to it more than I've ever looked forward to a workout."
Moderation Is Key with Her Diet
"I don't deprive myself of anything. If I want something—steak, a bagel—I'll eat it. There's no diet or strict set of rules," she dished to Shape about how she eats. She also follows her hunger pangs and fuels herself prior to exercise. "I don't get hungry until around 10 a.m., but since I usually do Lagree at 9:30, I'll make myself eat a banana beforehand so I don't get too shaky. Then I have a MacroBar afterward and eat lunch around 11:30—usually salad, soup, or a sandwich," she revealed. "I love to cook for my son and me. For dinner, we like salmon with french fries, and we make pasta frequently. We try to have lots of green veggies.
She Sips On Celery Juice
January has one favorite green juice. "Last winter, I started drinking celery juice every day, and I've seen amazing results in my energy, digestion, and skin and how I sleep. I have that in the morning, then I take my vitamins and drink coffee," she told Shape.
She Sticks to Organic Food
January sticks to organic foods, "because I worry a lot about that for my kid," she explained to Shape. "No antibiotics or hormones in meats is really important to me, and so is eating sustainable fish. I don't want to be that annoying person in the restaurant who's like, 'Where's this fish from?' But I do it anyway."
Her Goal Is Strong, Not Skinny
For January, staying in shape is about strength, not being skinny. "Being strong is important as you get older. I want to look and feel as young as I possibly can."
