When it comes to living a healthy lifestyle, I know what it means to be a weekend warrior. As a working mother of a toddler and a new resident of San Diego, it can be a struggle to juggle my fitness goals and healthy diet on top of a new job, a new city, and a rambunctious little boy. There doesn't seem to be enough hours in the day. Even if your busy life means pushing off a workout, you can still make the most of your free time. Here are three top places in North County to stay active and conquer the weekend.

Elixir Juice


Being healthy is a lifestyle, not just a trend, and Elixir understands and embraces this more than anyone. This Del Mar stop is a gem for finding quick and healthy bites, even during a busy schedule. While Elixir offers juice, smoothies and cleanses, it’s also so much more than just a juice bar. The menu has an array of organic, locally sourced meals from paninis to grain bowls, and includes options for breakfast, like super food oatmeal and gluten-free baked goods. What you put in your body matters at Elixir, and as an active mom, it matters to me too.

Glade Pro

Glade Pro

Getting a killer workout is exactly what I need to maintain the right mindset for a continuously healthy life. Brandon Glade of Glade Pro is a personal trainer in Carlsbad who caters to providing expert fitness advice to those seeking a one-on-one training opportunity. If you’re looking to intensify your activity level in each workout, Brandon is the guy to see. After an hour at the gym with his unique style of coaching, I was equal parts exhilarated and exhausted. You definitely won’t be disappointed after a session.

San Diego Fit

Fitness and fashion don’t have to be mutually exclusive. The gym isn’t all sweatpants and baggy tees anymore, and I, for one, am grateful. Getting dressed is a great way to mentally prepare for a workout. San Diego Fit always has me covered (literally) for any kind of workout. The location in Carlsbad carries tons of styles and brands, so you can stand out in statement leggings or coordinate patterns and colors to create a unique outfit from head to toe. These active outfits will see you through every aspect of your healthy and active lifestyle. Get ready to sweat!
