Bobby Flay manages to stay fit and healthy even with a busy lifestyle as a chef, and he’s eager to share his healthy eating and fitness plan with fans in a seven-part Web series, Bobby Flay Fit.
The focus of Episode 5 of Bobby Flay Fit is inspiration: Dig deep to find inspiration in both work and play to keep yourself motivated to continue your healthy lifestyle.
In Episode 5, Bobby, his wife, Stephanie, and friend Katie Lee head to a SoulCycle class, led by instructor Laurie. The camaraderie of the group class and the motivation from the teacher is what Bobby finds inspiring. He likes cycling because it’s a fun and challenging workout, but it’s low-impact so it’s easy on his knees and ankles — a nice break from all the running he does.
But after all of their hard work, Bobby and Katie get in the kitchen to cook brunch together: oatmeal pancakes, open-faced egg sandwiches, sangria and spiced, baked grapefruit.
Takeaways from Episode 5:
- Protect your joints by working low-impact exercise into your routine.
- Take a group fitness class; the camaraderie will inspire you to stick with it.
- Sticking with your fitness routine is hard work. It’s okay to reward yourself once in a while.
