November Tone It Up Book Club! Kat’s Favorite Reads
Hey babe! Hope you’re having an amazing November so far. If you haven’t seen, we’re filming new workouts on the beach! Check out our behind the scenes on Instagram @ToneItUp!
In between all our travels, work, and filming, we like to take time to read to feed our mind and soul. Karena recently shared her Book Club picks (check them out HERE!) I love Karena’s spiritual and design reads (she just got me her fave, the Four Agreements, for my birthday!) The books I’ve been reading lately are in leadership, business, and science. Karena and I trade our favorites back and forth and right now she’s reading up on my fave~ anatomy!
I’m really excited to share some of my picks with you today. And I’m always looking for recommendations…what have you been reading this fall? Tell me in the comments! 📚🤗
Leaders Eat Last by Simon Sinek
This is one of those books I always come back to. No matter where you are in your career and your life, I recommend reading books on leadership. They will inspire you to take on leadership roles in all aspects of your life, whether it be at work or among your friends. Anyone and everyone can be a leader~ you just need to have the confidence to step into the role and own it!
Start With Why by Simon Sinek
This is another great book by the same author. It’s about how all successful leaders started with the WHY behind their idea. That resonated with me so much because Karena and I always come back to our WHY. We constantly think about why we started Tone It Up~ to bring women together in a loving, supportive community. That is our passion and purpose and everything we do serves that WHY.
What Successful People Know About Leadership by John C. Maxwell
Another one on leadership! This book answers some really important questions like: How do I become a leader if I’m more junior in my company? And how do I balance leading others and creating myself?
I’m constantly striving to be the best leader I can at work and in my personal life. These books all give me new insights and inspiration and broaden my perspective on what it means to be that person who can lead everyone in a direction of confidence, inspiration, and fulfillment!
If you’re also looking for some inspo…l love Ted Talks!
The Little Book of Friendship by Tiddy Rowan
I believe it takes being a good friend to have good friends. It’s so important to go out of your way for others and to listen to them and be there for them, and in turn you’ll have really strong female relationships in your life.
The Productivity Project by Chris Bailey
Managing my time can be a challenge because I’m constantly trying to find the balance. This book had some really helpful and surprising advice for upping your productivity and making the most of your time. It’s particularly helpful for weeks like these when we’re filming and things are extra crazy!
Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning by Gregory Haff
I think it’s essential to constantly evolve as a trainer and educate myself on everything I can. I love reading up on new research on strength training, yoga anatomy, and physiology. I loved going to college for Health Science and being a student, so this gives me the same feeling as being in school!
I recently completed my yoga teacher training and it gave me that same feeling. Read about it in THIS post :)
What are your fave books? I can’t wait to read all about them and take a page from you! ;)
