Tonyia's Exercise Schedule
Tonyia started out walking on a treadmill for 30 minutes every day. She steadily increased the duration then ended up hiring a personal trainer, with whom she still works out around February every year. On top of her own cardio, her sessions with the trainer took place two days a week. They'd run, focus on Tonyia's flexibility, and strengthen her core.
Tonyia said she wears her Fitbit when she exercises and also to compete in step challenges with relatives. "Once I started walking, I realized that it was great motivation. I would walk more during the day to try to win the step challenge, which was a lot of fun," she explained. "I even started walking in 5K races and managed to complete 30 of them the year before I turned 40." Tonyia noted that the walking challenges "make you feel like your movements matter."
Tonyia uses the Fitbit app to work out sometimes as well, and she tracks her sleep on the device. This coming February, she plans to meet with her personal trainer four days a week, and she'll also add an extra run or walk in the evenings.
