Fashion-Flash-logoThis week Mirabai  of Moving Free with Mirabai is hosting Fashion Flash.  These days it seems that all a trainer needs is a  lap top and a smart phone–  no credentials, no experience, no  references needed.  This is why I  have so  much  confidence and  admiration  for Mirabai.  She has more than  four degrees and 20 years of experience.  And what I think  makes her extra special is that  she  still bubbles with   a passion and enthusiasm  for  health and exercise  programs.  Mirabai  has created  fitness programs for children, heart patients, word class athletes, and  new mommies.  She knows   how every bone, muscle and ligaments  works and her science based  yet entertaining  approach  always  works, never hurts.  Check out her site for great advice and videos.  You’ll  thank me.

Fashion FLash Book Review: Brunette AmbitionFashion Flash Book Review:  Brunette Ambition by Lea Michele

I’m usually not a big fan of celebrity lifestyle books.  Its hard to read a  book by a tall, blonde glamazon offering style tips that only work if you have 4% body fat.  Usually  they credit their flawless complexion to good genes and  gallons of water.  The secret  to  perfect body?  A combination of  a brutal exercise routinue  and a claim  that  they  can  eat anything and never gain weight. Seriously.
