Tamera had gained around 60 pounds while being pregnant with her daughter Ariah. To shift this weight off her body, she made healthy changes to her lifestyle. She made sure that she was working out 4 days a week. Out of these 4 days, two days were reserved for weightlifting interval training, one day for cardio, and a day for pilates.
Of late, she has added Zumba and yoga to her workout routine as well. The former is her go-to choice when she wants to burn calories fast and want to have some fun while at it. One of the biggest benefits of yoga for her is that it helps her relieve stress. It has also helped her take care of her back problem and increased flexibility is the added benefit.
