Podcast: Starting an Exercise Routine

In this episode, Jess picks the brain Wellness Whisk Maxine Yeung, a Certified Personal Trainer extraordinaire and a Registered Dietitian at Stanford. 

Jess and Maxine used to work together years ago in Brooklyn at Kings County Hospital Center as inpatient dietitians, and now they both live in the beautiful Bay Area, California. In addition to being a wellness Registered Dietitian at Stanford’s Primary Care Clinic, Maxine is also a private dietitian and certified personal trainer for her company, Wellness Whisk.

In this episode, Maxine breaks down everything you need to know about fitness, particularly from a woman’s point of view.

We chat about:

  • How much exercise you need in a day and some of the important health benefits of physical activity
  • What are some of the best exercises you can do — in the gym and at home
  • Women in weights – and why strength training is so important
  • How to build a booty, because, let’s face it, this is why we REALLY workout (kidding!)

    What a great episode! I was just talking to a friend of mine (and fellow RD) over the weekend about how badly I needed to set up an exercise routine. I feel like as RD’s we usually have the nutrition side down but a lot of us lack the exercise part and you have to have both!

    I really want to get into strength training because it’s key in weight loss, but as you all stated the men in the weights area can be so intimidating. My problem is I have a huge butt and wide hips that stand out because I have a smaller waist. I REALLY don’t want to deal with the stares, comments, unsolicited “help” and flat out being hit on. I think a women’s only gym is in my future lol.
