Celebrity Fitness Instructor Reveals Alex Rodirguez & Eli Manning’s Training Secrets

Baseball Babes in Bikinis
Baseball and bikini season make for two great pastimes!
Gwen Lawrence is the instructor for five New York pro teams, including the New York Giants. She has several online yoga classes on GaiamTV.com.

Along with spring’s blooming flowers and seasonal allergies comes a truly American tradition: baseball season. Fresh off spring training, our MLB pros take to the field with a statistical clean slate and fresh goals for the season ahead. It’s also time for our little leaguers to get excited about their summer baseball games and start their own preparations for a great season.

From working with my pro athlete clients like Alex Rodriguez and Eli Manning, I’ve learned that there are a few things our athletes can do at home to jumpstart the process, like:

• Eat healthy choices
• Drink plenty of water
• Get a full night’s rest

For more top notch suggestions on ways to ensure a successful season, go to GaiamTV.com and check out these picks:

1. Gaiam Inspirations: Victoria Boutenko for her green smoothie recipes for health, vitality and energy
2. Jean Houston: A Passion for the Possible

This week, we’re focusing on honing the mind. Next week, we’ll focus on specific areas athletes should target in their training and why.
