Women Fitness President Ms. Namita Nayyar catches up with Katie Corio, an exceptionally talented fitness trainer and social media influencer, who talks about her workout, diet and beauty secrets.
You are one of the most popular fitness trainers, what attracted you towards fitness and make it your career of choice?
Fitness has completely transformed my life–– from providing routine and structure to my days, to increasing my self-confidence and strength, to teaching me how to love and appreciate my body… living an active and healthy lifestyle has been fulfilling in ways I couldn’t have ever imagined. I consider it a privilege to be able to help others achieve the same life transformation as I had through fitness. I get to help people conquer their goals in the gym and then watch the confidence they build radiate through the other areas of their life. Helping people become the best versions of them, helping them become more confident and positive in the process, that’s what I live for. It’s the most fulfilling and rewarding job!
Provide us an insight into a day in your life? The first thought that strikes you about good health?
I’ve always believed that health is wealth. Your health is more valuable than anything in the world. Without it, you can’t do anything! I usually start my day with a morning meditation followed by a healthy breakfast. After a few hours on my laptop I head to the gym for my daily workout. Post workout I usually grab a healthy lunch and head up to the Corio Active warehouse to pack orders and work on new product development. Sometimes I’m lucky enough to squeeze in some beach volleyball in the late afternoon before heading home to make a healthy dinner and relax with my dogs and boyfriend before bed!
Five must-have foods that you recommend for a weight loss diet?
I’m a strong believer that consistency over time is what yields the best and most lasting results. I also teach my clients to eat whole, natural, nutritious foods. Foods found straight from nature, not man-made or processed. My top favorite healthy food staples I always incorporate in my diet are eggs, avocado, chia seeds, berries, walnuts and leafy greens.
What does your first meal of the day look like? Supplements you strongly advocate for women at 40?
Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. A typical breakfast of mine would include eggs, sautéed spinach, fresh organic berries, and oatmeal topped with chia seeds, walnuts and honey. Paired with a large cup of coffee of course!
Supplements for women at 40… that’s an easy one! I highly recommend doing a power-packed greens drink in the morning. The one I use and love is called Vegan Greens & Reds, from 1Up Nutrition. It has tons of antioxidants, pro and prebiotics, micro greens, vitamins and minerals. It packs a punch and tastes awesome too. It’s great for immunity boost, anti-aging and cancer prevention. The other supplement I recommend is also from 1Up Nutrition–– called Women’s Hormone Support Plus. It’s full of hand-picked and tested ingredients that support a woman’s natural hormonal balance and regularity. Women go through so much change hormonally through all life’s stages, with some not so pleasant side effects. This all natural supplement aids in keeping the hormones well balanced and regulated, minimizing the negative side effects that we experience (like PMS, mood swings and fatigue).
