ciao bella! "What are your skin care secrets?"
Gist Stramler "I drink a lot of water to keep my skin hydrated from the inside. I also use a strong sunscreen.
ciao bella! "What is your favorite cosmetic line?"
Gist Stramler "I love Mary Kay’s skin care products, the eye makeup remover, the mineral powder and the Downtown Brown lipstick."
ciao bella! "What hair care products do you use?"
Gist Stramler "Sei Bella by Melaleuca, Cantu Shea Butter Conditioning Co-Wash from the Natural Hair Collection, Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Cream and Coconut Curling Cream."
ciao bella! "What do you do to manage stress?"
Gist Stramler " Movement really helps. Also, a massage doesn’t hurt either."
ciao bella! "What is your fitness routine? "
Gist Stramler "I exercise more than 600 minutes a week but the CDC recommends the minimum of 150 minutes a week. I teach fitness classes every day. When I do my own workout I run or walk/jog three miles before doing weights. I split up the upper and lower body for strength training on alternating days and include core and stretching daily."
ciao bella! "As a trainer what do you recommend for your clients?"
Gist Stramler "I recommend two to three workouts a week for maintenance. Spinning is a great way to lean up and burn calories. It's also good for cross-training for swimmers and runners to take spin classes as an alternative cardio workout that will keep them from plateauing. I enjoy using some of the fitness apps like Fit Pal and Fit Day. Always park a little farther from the door. Take the stairs and do mini office breaks. There are some exercises you can do at your desk or in your office like push-ups off the desk or wall, sit/stands from the chair (modified squats), tricep lifts, seated leg lifts, seated bicycles alternating elbow to opposite knee and glute squeezes."
ciao bella! "What is your diet secret?"
Gist Stramler "I eat clean foods, take plenty of Omega-3 vitamins and I eat five or six small meals a day, with a balance of healthy fat, low-carbs and protein in each meal."
ciao bella! "What is your personal style like and what are your fashion favorites?"
Gist Stramler "I choose classic styles. I wear a lot of black and white, red or brights."
ciao bella! "What are your biggest beauty secrets?"
Gist Stramler "Getting plenty of sleep and I think beauty comes from within. Your eyes say it all – if you aren’t happy, your eyes reveal that."
