We are so thrilled about our first fitness app Oxygen Best Body for the iPad is available to download now! You can get it here. Here’s what our cover girl Lori Harder had to say about what happened on set, how she likes the app and her favorite features! Take it away Lori:
Being involved with Oxygen and being on the cover of their first app is a complete honor. A second does not go by that I don't feel overwhelmed with gratitude. It means so much to me because there were years of my life when I struggled with mood, energy, weight, confidence and poor nutrition, and fitness magazines and Oxygen were the only hope I had of learning that there was a happier, healthier lifestyle available for me. It represents paying forward hope, dreams and the vehicle to make it happen. This app is so important because this is the way of the future and Oxygen is making sure to stay at the forefront of fitness, and gets you timely information to make it even easier to be healthy and live the life you deserve.
Photo Shoot Fun
Shooting for Oxygen is always guaranteed to be an amazing experience, so when I heard that we would be filming and shooting for the interactive issue I could not wait! When I arrived we had two full days of filming workouts, nutrition segments and shooting cover shots. The Oxygen team knows how to have fun, but they also take their job very seriously. They are constantly thinking about how to keep the readers involved and give them the most inspirational, educational and beneficial shots and information that they can get. They are all equally passionate about what they do and don't quit until it's perfect. I am always amazed and impressed at how much detail goes into each picture, cover and training article.
It was a hot day on set, but the crew that day was so much fun I did not even notice. We tried so many new things to get shots that were full of life and energy! The day started full of energy working on possible shots for the cover, running on the beach, jumping in the waves and sitting on rocks while the waves crashed up behind me. I'm sure the streaking of my self tanner and the splashing cold water definitely caught a few "real" expressions on my face! The weather conditions were not perfect for what they wanted to catch but they did not give up on trying to find what they set out for. When you work with professionals they find a way to make it happen! Working with Paul Buceta, the photographer, is incredible because he truly can make anything happen behind the lens. He knows how to make you comfortable and always seems to get that perfect shot even when there is less that perfect weather conditions. We ended the day jumping out of trees, working out on the beach and swinging from monkey bars. It's all in a days work for the Oxygen team!
Fitness at Your Fingertips
I absolutely love this app because they share the secrets, tips and info of all types of women who are living this healthy lifestyle every day. This app is making it tangible for the reader to reach their goals by learning, hearing and seeing all things fitness, LIVE! It's also so fun to get to know the people who inspire you a little better!
I am obsessed with this new app! I think people should get it because I love seeing some of the workouts done live by some of my biggest fitness inspirations! I also love all of the motivating pics, awesome recipes and cool ways to share them. I feel like I am part of the fun when I am swiping and choosing to see all of the different options on each page! I love how personal the digital issue is. It truly feels like you are reading something that your friends wrote you. From a reader’s perspective, I felt like I was really a part of the action! The best part is knowing that I always have it on my iPad and don't have a pile of magazines that I forget to look back on. I will always have a quick way to access recipes and info instead of paging through magazines! I have a feeling the best is yet to come with this digital app! Oxygen only gets better and better, and you can always count on them to stay one step ahead to ensure you will stay at the top of your game!
Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of this...it means more than I can say!
