Summer Living with Jorge Cruise

The celebrity fitness coach shares his ideal summer day and go-to warm-weather workout.

Hot on the heels of his latest book, “The 3 Choices,” Jorge Cruise is traveling across the country engaging with people about how to live their best lives by turning their pain into power. In our June magazine, 24Life talked with Cruise about his new book, and the three practices he has used to find self-love and acceptance.

Between book signings and appearances, we checked in with Cruise to ask about his other summer plans—including what he is currently reading and his favorite go-to summer workout.

24Life: What is your perfect summer day?

Jorge Cruise (JC): Waking up early and having some “me” time: I journal and practice HILO yoga, then get moving with my husband and two boys. We like to be active and adventurous, so we always find exciting ways to have fun. The best afternoon activity for us is splashing in the pool, while the veggies grill on the BBQ.

24Life: Do you have a summer project?

JC: My latest book “The 3 Choices” is on sale now, and the book tour is keeping me busy. I’m spreading the word on how to turn pain into power, and encouraging people make choices to live their best life—that’s what will be fueling my summer. This book has been a true passion project for me, and I am thrilled to share it with the world.

24Life: How did you make time to write books in your busy life?

JC: Making a meaningful impact in people’s lives is my passion, so it’s important for me to make time to write. We all have too much work to do, projects we want to accomplish and family get-togethers to attend. It can feel like there is never enough time to get everything done, but we do our best and focus on the passions in life—those will keep you going.

24Life: What is your go-to summer workout?

JC: Working out with a buddy is the best way to make sure move to improve, while having fun. The warm weather of summer is the perfect invitation to get outside, soak up the sun and enjoy the fresh air. I love playing volleyball, or doing yoga on the beach.

24Life: What are you reading this summer?

JC: I am reading Steve Harvey’s latest book, “Jump: Take the Leap of Faith to Achieve Your Life of Abundance.” He has always given me great advice, and has helped me have the confidence to be myself and the faith to keep pushing forward towards success.
