THELONIOUS JOHNSON HELPS WITH RESOLUTIONS

****
FIVE TIPS FOR GETTING IN SHAPE IN 2013
****


Thelonious “T.J.” Johnson



We have all made New Year’s resolutions to slim down, tone up and get in shape, but more often than not, we lose motivation within a few short weeks. This year, Thelonious “T.J.” Johnson, personal fitness expert and trainer to the stars, has five easy tips that can help anyone reach their personal fitness goals, despite busy schedules and the stresses of a new year.



· MAKE A REALISTIC RESOLUTION


Decide on a few realistic fitness goals for yourself – challenge yourself to strengthen your upper body, tone your abdomen, improve your running time or lose 10 lbs by this summer. Write them on a piece of paper and carry them with you. This little reminder will help you stay on track and keep you from reaching for an unhealthy snack.




· SWEAT BEFORE YOU SLEEP


Whether you are supplementing your workout routine or need to jumpstart a new one, adding 20 minutes of cardio activity to the end of each day will give your metabolism an extra boost to keep working while you sleep, helping you burn off the day’s extra calories. Jog around your neighborhood; take a spinning or boot camp class at the gym or even jump rope at home. Added bonus: exercising in the evening will also help clear your mind, relieve stress and keep you away from tempting desserts.

Thelonious Johnson





Thelonious Johnson, better known as T.J., is a triple threat as an actor, model and fitness expert. Named one of 2008’s Most Eligible Bachelors by Extra, T.J. has established himself in many arenas, proving to be a sought-after actor while helping motivate and train individuals, such as CNN’s Anderson Cooper, to reach peak levels of fitness.



As a model, T.J. has been featured in leading publications such as Vogue Italia, Details, and on the cover of Maximum Fitness. His acting highlights include the Capcom viral video for popular video game, Bionic Commando, roles on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, One Life to Live, All My Children, Nova: Mind Over Money and the off Broadway production of Bell Flower Sessions. He was also featured in nationally syndicated commercials for Old Spice Hair & Body Wash and Gillette. Most recently, T.J. appeared as himself on Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels in 2012.



T.J.’s affinity for fine arts stems from his childhood— his father, a jazz musician, and mother, an artist, emphasized the importance of art throughout T.J.’s upbringing, even naming their son after famed American jazz pianist and composer, Thelonious Monk. Upon college graduation, T.J. focused his efforts on acting, while maintaining a level of physical activity that dovetailed his life-long fitness interests.
