Use videos to inspire you, or just move your body. Staying home is no excuse not to get some movement into your day.

Taylor on Her Exercise Routine

Taylor on Weight Lifting
‘If I lift up a weight, I automatically get super strong. That’s why I get intimidated and stay away from the gym…if I were to work out, I would look like a bodybuilder.’
Taylor on Why Exercise Videos Are The Way to Go
‘Some people feel intimidated when they walk into a gym. Some people don’t even want to leave the house. I wanted to make something where you don’t have to leave the house to get a workout and feel good.’
Teyana Taylor’s Supplements
Taylor doesn’t have much to say on the topic of supplements, so below are options that can benefit anyone following a similar diet plan.
Given Taylor’s less-than-ideal diet, a multivitamin would be a wise choice.
As a new mom, a B-complex vitamin is another good option to boost energy, and it can also help with postpartum depression.
For strong muscles and bones, adding vitamin D is a smart idea, and many people are deficient in this essential nutrient.
Sleep-deprived moms need all the help they can get, and supplementing with magnesium can improve sleep quality.
Taylor’s body has been through a lot between pregnancy and the lumpectomies. Adding probiotics helps restore good diges-tion and counteract the effects of antibiotics.
