FIT 5: Hamptons Edition with Mahri Relin, Founder of Body Conceptions

Fueling properly, making time for a rest day, and allowing herself to indulge is key for Mahri Relin, who has certainly built a name for herself around her signature workout – Body Conceptions. How does Mahri stay so spunky and full of energy? Read on to learn what she eats to keep her energy levels high, while training multiple clients a day.

In Mahri’s words:

I get asked a lot about my fitness and eating schedule, especially by my private clients.  I do so much of my private sessions with my clients, so I don’t need to do additional exercise during the week.  (Each client is also very different in their needs, requests, and limitations, so I get a truly varied exercise regime as a result)  On the 7th day of my week (my rest day!), I need to make sure I take true time off from my workout, but I love staying active and trying other things.  Just recently, I spent the weekend and hiking and walking upstate with my boyfriend!

In terms of eating, I need to focus on fueling up and getting enough carbohydrates and protein before my workouts.  You can see that I eat out a lot because I stay in the city working all day and live a bit too far to go home and cook.  I try to look for healthy options and opportunities to share meals when I can.  However, I also believe in indulging myself, so you’ll see a few sweets here and there.  Ok, maybe more than a few!

It’s BBQ season, baby! We’re certainly taking advantage of steamy summer nights to grill anything and everything - it just tastes so much better! Right now, we are loving this tropical-inspired chicken recipe, which tastes ever-so-slightly of coconut thanks to the coconut water marinade. This got us thinking, what can’t you do with coconuts?
