A Bride's Best Body

The ABC's of Being Your Best on Your Wedding Day



Rush Cycle

The to-do list for your wedding is longer than your arm: set a seating chart, plan a menu, make a registry and a thousand other things, big and small. Exercise might feel like the last thing you can fit into your schedule, but it can be the most important “to do” for a fabulous wedding day.

A. ANTICIPATE STRESS

Weddings are huge stress inducers—add to that a tendency to focus on our wedding day . But how you is just as important. Making mindful, fun and efficient exercise a priority will help you accomplish both looking and feeling your best. Book exercise classes in advance, and make them non-negotiable blocks of time. Your arms will be toned for your strapless Vera Wang and, more importantly, you will feel amazing throughout the ceremony. 

B. BIKE AND BARRE!

Trimming and toning for the wedding day doesn’t have to be a struggle, nor does it have to be a dull, laborious process filled with boring workouts or constant calorie counting. Two local havens are perfect for helping brides-to-be:
