Bobby Flay Fit, Episode 5: Inspiration

In Episode 5 of Food Network's Web series "Bobby Flay Fit," Chef Bobby Flay talks about how to find inspiration to keep on doing.

Bobby Flay manages to stay fit and healthy even with a busy lifestyle as a chef, and he's eager to share his healthy eating and fitness plan with fans in a seven-part Web series, Bobby Flay Fit.

The focus of Episode 5 of Bobby Flay Fit is inspiration: Dig deep to find inspiration in both work and play to keep yourself motivated to continue your healthy lifestyle.

In Episode 5, Bobby and friend Katie Lee head to a SoulCycle class, led by instructor Laurie. The camaraderie of the group class and the motivation from the teacher is what Bobby finds inspiring. He likes cycling because it's a fun and challenging workout, but it's low-impact so it's easy on his knees and ankles — a nice break from all the running he does.

But after all of their hard work, Bobby and Katie get in the kitchen to cook brunch together: oatmeal pancakes, open-faced egg sandwiches, sangria and spiced, baked grapefruit.

Takeaways from Episode 5:
  • Protect your joints by working low-impact exercise into your routine.
  • Take a group fitness class; the camaraderie will inspire you to stick with it.
  • Sticking with your fitness routine is hard work. It’s okay to reward yourself once in a while.
