"These workouts are done in one hour and it's always changing," said Kaiser. "I wanted to create a workout that changes and you never get bored. You change courses every two weeks, [doing] power hip hop, ballet, etc. You get results in fun and efficient ways."

The artist and businesswoman juggles all that life throws at her with proper nutrition. "We do small meals all throughout the day. She's so busy she has to keep her energy up," the trainer added. "[She eats] all throughout the day—really healthy clean food so her body can absorbs the nutrition as much as possible."

Such foods include lean meats, lush greens, bright veggies and a little dark chocolate for a sweet finish.

Kaiser even shared workout dos and don'ts that are fairly easy to execute (thank God). Feel free to implement the following in your day-to-day regimen.

1. Do show up. Meaning, don't let your hangover keep you from working out the next day. "Give yourself a time period," Kaiser said. "Give yourself specific goals, like ‘I'm going to show up for four weeks and really commit even if it's just for fifteen minutes.'"
2. Don't drink too much alcohol. "Drinking is one of the ways we consume the most sugar," Kaiser said.
3. Do make working out fun. "Even if it's a long walk in a new city or a new machine or new class. You shouldn't be talking yourself into it," Kaiser said.
4. Do buy a new awesome outfit. "You will feel good—you should like what you see for you and not for the other people in the room," she said.
5. Don't make getting to your workout challenging with a long commute. "Do exercises at home or do something close to you," Kaiser advised.
6. Don't do a workout just to check the box and burn calories. "[Working out] should be something you do to reach your goal," she said.

Nicky Jam Drops 'Behind Nicky Jam's Intimo' Documentary Trailer

Apple Music released the trailer for a documentary on reggaeton superstar Nicky Jam. The visual precedes the release of his most personal album to date, Intimo. Judging by the trailer, Behind Nicky Jam’s Intimo gives viewers an inside look at the 38-year-old’s battle with drugs and almost losing his whole career.

In the past, Jam has been open about his struggles. “Music is my therapist, and this album was therapy for me,” he told Apple Music. According to a press release, the singer discusses making his first album at just 13, drugs, and his 25-year career.

Jam also worked on a drama series for Netflix titled El Ganador, where he shared some of those dark moments in his life.

"El Ganador is the story of my life," he tells VIBE. "How I battled drug and alcohol addiction, my mom and dad had the same problems [and] how we all got out of it. We're trying to tell the youth and the world what route to take. Right now, there are a lot of kids that need to get out of that street/thug mentality and make it right. I am living proof that if you do right, right will come to you."

Behind Nicky Jam’s Intimo will debut on Friday (Oct. 25), a week before Intimo drops. Jam will also appear in Bad Boys III starring Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, which hits theaters January 2020.

Premiere: Sebastian Yatra Promotes Bad School Girl Behavior In New Visual For “Mañana No Hay Clase (24/7)”

Colombian singer Sebastian Yatra continues to push boundaries by intermixing his classical ballad sound with the hedonistic rhythms of reggaeton and Latin trap. Through glimpses of a sunny Southern California fantasy, the 25-year-old artist teamed up with Dalmata and Ñejo on “Mañana No Hay Clase (24/7)” at Los Angeles’ iconic Pink Motel for the single’s video.

Three beautiful schoolgirls cause mayhem inside a 7-Eleven style convenient store and beachy skate parks. Like the song’s title suggests, there's no school tomorrow, so what’s the point of behaving? The visuals, directed by Pedro Araujo, are filled with the staples of Cali life, like sunshine, skateboarding, and chill vibes.

“Mañana No Hay Clase (24/7)” was produced by Mauricio Rengifo and Andres Torres (who produced Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito”). Yatra stepped into the scene with his 2018 major-label debut album Mantra. He experimented with both urban and classic sounds. He doesn’t like labeling his sound but prefers to experiment with what feels right.

“We never said, we do ‘this’ type of music, I just make songs to make you wanna party like crazy or make you get intimate with a girl you like,” he tells VIBE. “All these songs have a purpose and each of them are written for a different moment in life. All these beats make you feel different things.”
