Acacia swimwear, created by good friends Lyndie irons, and Naomi Newirth offers the gold standard in fun, and sexy swimwear.Â As part of my Get Fit series, I picked the brain of Acacia designer Naomi Newirth, for her top tips and tricks to looking good in a bikini.
Andrea: You live in Hawaii, where bikiniâ€™s are mandatory, how do you stay in Acacia-wearing shape?
Naomi: Haha. Maui makes it really easy to stay healthy. When I am not in my office I am either walking the beach or surfing. We also have one of the most wonderful health food stores I have ever been to called Mana foods in Paia. I also recently became a member of upcountry fitness and I am addicted to this class called fusion fit. Â I go 2 to 3 days a week. Itâ€™s a high Intensity, low impact interval class, The class lasts an hour and a half. I never thought I would love a workout class haha but I do! The teachers, music and people that go are amazing! When I am really staying on top of my health I do yoga as well. Another little trick to staying healthy and fit is also paying attention to what you put in your body. Donâ€™t get me wrongâ€¦.I have my little junk food binges. But for the most part I try and eat healthy (organic, gluten free-I live off of Ezekiel products which are all sprouted grain breads and tortillas etc. I try and be dairy free but goat products are ok, and almond milk is an amazing replacement. I also try and keep my sugar intake low and if I am going to have something with a sweetener in it I try and only have honey or maple syrup. And if its juice I try to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juices. My favorite is apple, beet, carrot, celery, ginger and lemon!
