A Day in the Life of Celebrity Fitness Trainer Astrid Swan McGuire
What’s your morning routine?
I wake up between 5 and 6 a.m. and the first thing I do is drink a bottle of water with chlorophyll drops in it. I eat a pint of organic raspberries and blueberries then make a smoothie with spinach, celery, cucumber, ginger, cinnamon, flax, apple and banana. Depending on where I have to be and how I have to look, it can take me anywhere from five minutes (brushing my teeth and putting on sunscreen) to 20 minutes to get out the door.
Which products do reach for while getting ready?
I use Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap and Yes to Blueberries Body Wash and then use coconut oil as a moisturizer as soon as I get out of the shower. I never leave the house without my Elta MD Skincare Broad Spectrum SPF 45!
What’s a day at work like?
I drive to a private gym and train one to two clients and then drive to the studios to train clients in between shoots. I drive to the gym for myself and then pop home to shower, let the dogs out and answer emails. Then I drive to a particular client’s home to train, and finally to Barry’s Bootcamp to teach my master class. I drive a lot!
What do you eat for lunch and dinner? Do you ever snack?
I eat anytime between 12 and 1 p.m. and snack before and after, too, which usually consists of red peppers, almonds or flax crackers with avocado. I always have water on me at all times and my lunch is usually a giant kale or mixed green salad with salmon or quinoa. For dinner, I always have a salad to start and then vegetables like brussel sprouts, cauliflower or sweet potatoes with either chicken or steak, depending on my mood.
What do you do when you’re out of work?
I love my job but when I get off I’m exhausted! I usually just come home and prepare for the next day. I’ll eat dinner, and then watch some TV with lights out by 10p.m. Beauty sleep is required!
Any new products you’re excited about?
One of my best friends is an aesthetician who has created the most amazing, handmade face oil called Dew Skin Oil. I’m pretty obsessed with it and use it in place of my moisturizer and then put it on top of my serums at night, or sometimes alone to soothe my skin.
Are there any surprising steps in your beauty routine?
There’s nothing too crazy, but as soon as I’m done working out, I use pads to remove dirt and sweat. Also, before a photo shoot, I rub an ice cube all over my face to help de-puff and tighten my skin!
What’s something we would be surprised to know about you?
In high school, I couldn’t run the one-mile gym class requirement around the soccer field and had absolutely zero endurance—now I love to run!
