For many of us, exercising is something we know that we should do – but not always something for which we have time or energy. With ever-increasing schedule demands –work, family, activities– it can seem impossible to include fitness on the calendar.
But what if I told you that you could jump-start a new fitness routine and boost your overall health and wellness even with your very tight schedule? Would you be down? It’s possible, I promise!
Over the years, I’ve learned that motivation and commitment are the keys most essential to any fitness regimen. I’ve also figured out how to create fitness plans that maximize results for those who are constantly on the move and can’t spend hours at the gym.
You can now share in my tips to success –as well as customized workout moves– in my new online workshop Jumpstart Your Fitness Routine. I’ll break down everything you need to know, demonstrate fitness techniques and detail fitness hacks that maximize your time and space. This 5-day course is designed to help you reinvigorate your health + fitness goals and it starts today! Click here to join me.
Hope that you’ll be able to take part in these upcoming events:

Check your ego before you step onto the sand. You may need for it to carry you home after the workout. -Christopher Grant
A resounding thank you to all participants of last week’s “Strength in the Sand” event sponsored by Under Armour at Chelsea Piers. Over 55 people turned out over two sessions to workout and to watch the festivities which celebrate #IWillWhatIWant, the international Under Armour Women campaign.
Headlined by the amazingly talented American Ballet Theatre soloist Misty Copeland, the campaign seeks to empower and inspire women, and men alike, to be active and engaged in their own bodies. This, as you may know, is a message near and dear to my heart and I’m honored to have been asked to be a part of the team. Stay tuned over the next months as I will be hosting Under Armour sponsored fitness events around New York City.
But that’s not all! Manhattan Beach Workout has been making quite a splash with press recently (yes, I went there). Check out our features by The New York Times, Well+Good and Self Magazine. I choreographed the class with the intention of helping athletes to re-establish the natural signature of the foot and to directly strengthen the foot/ankle complex. Not to mention strengthening the entirety of the leg, core and body. Low impact conditioning at it’s best, the workout varies, at times focusing on body-weight-only strategies while at others employing variable resistance equipment.
#ManhattanBeachWorkout sprints and drills in the sand –some disguised as games– made for a very fun, dynamic and challenging workout! -Shavaun Christian
Until the next time, get beached! Andia

A few months back, I had the awesome opportunity to pose for world renown extreme sports and action photographer / storyteller Corey Rich. Our session was part of a bigger learning project called “Getting the Shot with Corey Rich: Tech Tips.” Watch as we go behind the scenes for what it takes to realize a striking athlete portrait!
