Summer Vacation Shape Up

Ready or not, vacation season is here! We asked Kacy Duke, celebrity fitness expert to stars like Gwen Stefani and Mary J. Blige, for fast fitness fixes that will help you feel vacation-ready and confident in no time.

Move It: Increase your cardio workouts by 10-15 minutes, which does not necessarily mean another mile on the treadmill. Instead, try walking to work, parking in the back of the parking lot, or taking the stairs rather than the elevator.

Use It: No matter what arm-raising activities your vacation will include — rock climbing, yoga, or even flamenco dancing — worrying about your underarms should not be on the travel itinerary. Instead of sweating the small stuff, literally, Kacy recommends Dove® Visibly Smooth antiperspirant/deodorant. It minimizes the look and feel of underarm hair over time, helping women feel stubble-free longer while also providing 24-hour odor and wetness protection.

Work It: Strengthen the back and abs with Kacy’s Power Plank. Hold your body in a straight line, balancing on your forearms and toes. Strong core muscles improve posture and help you feel more toned all over.

How do you get vacation-ready? Tell us and you will be entered for a chance to win a Dove® Visibly Smooth deodorant prize pack including a designer tote bag, $100 gift card for fitness apparel, and Dove® Visibly Smooth antiperspirant/deodorant!

Summer is my FAVORITE time of the year and I do everything I can to look and feel my best before a big trip. My must dos: EASY. Hit the gym hard for pre bikini work outs, hit the spa for pre beach mani/pedi, and pack everything I need for looking "cool" in the heat :) I'm loving that Dove can keep me smoother for longer and need to make sure I pack that next time I'm vacationing!!!

I get ready by packing up my favorite clothes and making an effort to walk, bike, or go to the gym everyday so I am ready for the time off. I like other Dove products that I have tried before, so I would be interested in trying out the new deodorant as well!

I get vacation ready by making an effort to eat healthier 2 weeks before, spend at least an hour at the gym daily and making sure I have my 'vacation outfits' all ready. I'm always looking for a new deodorant to keep me fresh at the gym- I'll definitely give dove visibly smooth a try!

Before vacation I bulk up my cardio routine to include 30 minutes elliptical, 30 minutes treadmill and 30 minutes bike. I also cut back on sugars and carbs to make sure I look my best when I hit the beach!
