Meet Amrita Ramsingh: Mother of two, loving wife, certified personal trainer, nutrition consultant, family and kid’s yoga instructor and founder of CurveAppeal. From surprise scalp massages with her yoga sessions to grocery shopping and cooking in the kitchen with her clients, Amrita puts her own realistic spin on getting in shape today!

Why did you decide to get into fitness?
I got tired of looking like an aunty at a young age and got tired of being fat. I realized there are a lot of women like me who need help so CurveAppeal was born

Describe your workout routine?
Being a busy mom and business owner, sometimes I do miss workouts but this is the routine I have plan weekly and do my best to stick to:

Mondays: legs… my favourite
Tues: cardio & Core
Wed: Back & Biceps
Thur: Cardio & and a 30 minute massage
Fri: Chest & Shoulders and Triceps

What would you say is your favouriteeeeee exercise?
I love leg days so it’s one I don’t ever miss. Squats have to be my favourite: I am all for a curvy nice tight ass!

What do you hate?
I hate burpees but I manage to talk myself into doing them!

How do you stay motivated?
Being able to see how much more I can push myself, how much more I can do, how much more I can lift than last week is what motivates me. Most of all, my kids are so proud of me so I’m also doing it for them. I hated being a fatty, so having gone through that, I know I never want to be that girl again.

What is the most annoying fitness myth out there?
Girls that lift heavy will look like a man. That’s so far from the truth

What annoying question do you get asked the most? And the answer?
People are always curious to know how old I am! Some people say I look 25 – that’s good, I enjoy that 🙂 Then they look at my kids age and know well, I cant be 25. I never answer… I don’t feel old anymore and that’s all that matters!

How important is nutrition if someone works out consistently?
You can train until you are blue in the face 7 days a week but if your nutrition is crap all that working out is a complete waste. If you eat crap – you will look like crap and feel like crap too!

Your favourite breakfast foods:
My favorite, that I will have 2 times a year, is peanut butter and guava jelly sandwich. That’s my treat. But like I said, you get what you put in – I don’t want to look and feel like crap… so it’s eggs most mornings. It’s usually one whole egg and 6 whites sautéed with veggies (kale, zucchini, or mushrooms), some days a slice of toast to go with it.

What do you eat before and after a workout?
Before working out: Something with low G.I
After working out: a protein shake

 Tell us your view on “cheat” days?
I don’t believe in cheat days, you can do a cheat meal…but NOT a whole day. I think you should be able to eat anything you want in moderation. One bad meal won’t make you fat just like one clean meal won’t make you fit. It all boils down to balance and moderation

Do you have any advice for staying fit on the go?
There are no excuses: It’s so easy to do squats, lunges and push-ups anywhere! Those three exercises work all of your big muscles… You don’t need equipment.
