I'll admit it. This summer I've already downed my share of hot dogs, chips (they're always in front of me!), and milkshakes. Oh, and let's not forget my buddy Sam Adams?he's been around a lot lately too. But all those goodies have done my body no good, that's for sure.
With more skimpy shorts and beach time ahead of us, thank goodness for Tone House NYC.
It's fast becoming the place where even top trainers are heading before major fitness shoots or beach body vacay selfie binging. Before you hit sand and surf, try these these moves from former college athlete-turned hot model and founder of Tone House, Alonzo Wilson.

Start in a high plank push-up position again. Complete one push-up and then flip over to the left so that you are in a backwards table top. Extend the right hand and left leg up to touch (see pic above). Flip back over to high plank and repeat. Try this for one minute flipping to the left and then one minute flipping to the right (and then left hand touches right leg).
Begin in plank position on our elbows (as shown above). As if a coach blows his whistle, quickly press up to standing and sprint forwards. Run 20 yards and then turn around and sprint back. (this is best done outside and with a friend!). Repeat 5 times.
Start in squat position. Jump forward as far as you can, using the arms and hips to propel yourself forward (as shown above). Land in low squat position and repeat. Do for one minute (as many forwards as you have room for and then turn around and go back).
Backwards-Squat Twist with Jump Start
In a high plank push-up position (top photo), bend the knees and press back twisting the obliques to the right (in a twisting squat position with hands still on the ground, bottom photo). Jump the feet to the hands and then jump up off the ground. Jump the feet back to high plank position and repeat. Do for one minute twisting to the right and then one minute twisting to the left.
