Forget the "make over" -- it's so 2009. In 2010, try the "make better" from Elle Magazine and supermodel Brooklyn Decker.
You probably recognize Brooklyn from her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, among other magazines. She's also married to tennis superstar Andy Roddick, and is now starring in Elle's Make Better DVD series, a customized program including yoga, fitness, fashion, and beauty meant to bring you results in just 21 days.
Elle's editors have selected 3 of the top fitness experts in the country to work out with Brooklyn: Cardio Body instructed by Jade Alexis, Beauty Sculpt taught by Sara Haley, and Workout Yoga led by our friend, Tara Stiles.
Here's what Brooklyn had to say about making the series:
MindBodyGreen: What was your favorite part of making the Make Better Series?
Brooklyn Decker: My favorite part of making the Make Better Series was the collaboration with the experts. I felt like I lived a pretty active and healthy lifestyle, but they taught me so much more! Nutrition is an amazing thing, and to learn about foods that not only taste good and are full of nutrients for your body, but that also directly affect things like the clarity of your skin, or the texture of your hair- that is something that all women need to know about!!
MBG: Between Cardio Body, Workout Yoga and Beauty Sculpt, which was the most challenging personally?
BD: The most challenging workout for me was the yoga. Cardio is definitely the workout that gets you sweating the most. But for me, the yoga took the longest to get used to. In fact, Tara Stiles (my make better yoga instructor) and I started working on yoga a month and a half before I started on the others. It was something that was unfamiliar to me and quite honestly, I didn't think it would be challenging for someone athletic like me. I really couldn't have been more wrong. It made me control and move my body in ways I never could before, and it was an amazing outlet for stress. Also, doing the yoga really enhanced my form and strength in the Cardio Body and Beauty Sculpt workouts.
