BrookeBurke Brooke Burkes 15 Minutes workout routines Brooke Burke has been blogging over at about her latest fitness and diet tips for 2010.  Here are some of the fit mom’s goals and strategies for staying healthy in the new year…

Her Goals:

“I am trying to get into the best shape of my life, have more energy and less body fat. I don’t own a scale, nor do I care how much I weigh, but I know that my body is changing as I get older and I have to work harder to stay in shape these days.  It is what it is, so work harder I will!

Her Plan:

I’m totally obsessed with Pilates Plus!  I’m planning to do 3 classes a week, which is head to toe body sculpting and cardio all in 55 minutes.  In between classes I will do 45 minutes of cardio at the gym 3 times a week.”

On Feeling Good:

I promise you that once you get over the hump, working out will produce so many positive factors; less stress, more energy, more self confidence, a sense of accomplishment, self commitment, better sex drive (yes, it’s true!), etc.”

Fit Friends for Motivation:

It helps so much when you have a partner to motivate you.  Even a friend that you can commit with can help you from flaking.”
