How Tobias Stays Fit With A Hectic Touring Schedule

Get to know a little about Tobias in his bio:

Bio: “Tobias is a pop and hip-hop artist. He taught himself how to write, record, and produce his own music at a very young age and has since developed into the artist he is today. Although he has always created his own original music, his performance career started in 2011, performing as a back-up rapper. He has since developed as a solo artist and created a whole different sound for himself. Tobias has toured across the East Coast at some well-renowned festivals, events, and venues. He has a true passion for music and loves delivering his fans an exciting, high                                           energy performance.”

You may know Tobias from his infamous song, “Want You,” where you will be sure to find yourself with the lyrics, “ Girl, you got me going crazy, crazy and I really really really want you,” stuck in your head, and possibly belting out the chorus in the shower. Tobias recently released his new song “Robber,” and rest assured the lyrics and beat are just as catchy. If you want to check out Tobias’ music videos, head over to his YouTube Channel Tobias Sound. With his hectic schedule as an artist, Tobias wanted to show his fans his health takes just as much priority.

               

Tobias’ schedule is a bit chaotic in a true artist form. He wakes up around 7 or 8 a.m. , and chows down on some breakfast before heading straight to the gym. Building up a sweat is Tobias m.o., making sure that he targets a different muscle each day. He takes working out extremely seriously and says, “even though I have a busy schedule, my workout is one thing where I refuse to cut time.” With long hours on the stage performing, Tobias finds it crucial to get his full workout in six days a week; after all, huffing and puffing on stage, while performing is never a good look. His workout routine looks something like this; he begins with 15 minutes of cardio, targeting his muscle of the day, and ending with 20 to 30 minutes of abs. We all know we want to be kicking it in the gym, so make sure to get on Spotify and put some of Tobias’ tracks on your playlist. After his workout, he heads for a quick shower because each day is busy, as he fills his time with  recording, producing, writing, meetings with his label, Bently Records; networking or, promoting his music. And, this all happens in-between his touring schedule.

20% of health starts in the gym, while the other 80% is made in the kitchen. Tobias works with his personal chef, Emily from the company, Good Eats. Tobias is usually hard-pressed for time, and is unable to cook, which is why the design of the ” grab and go” meals are perfect for him. His meals are custom designed for him; each meal is low in fat, high in protein, with simple carbohydrates to keep him in shape, and healthy. He finds the meals to be, surprisingly delicious. Like most humans, Tobias enjoys one cheat day a week, where he checks out the latest restaurants, and savors all of the delectable bites.

By staying active, and healthy Tobias is able to give his audience an amazing performance . He says, ” I just don’t feel the same if I don’t get a full workout. When I workout and eat healthy, I feel happier and more energized and I can do more.”

When asking Tobias questions in regards to the article, I decided to ask a fun one!

What are some quirky things people don’t know about you?

Tobias answered, ” I’m crazy about shoes, especially athletic shoes, and especially Adidas. I probably have more than 40 pairs of shoes and I’m always getting new ones. A lot of my shoes are just the same shoe in all different colors. Having my gym outfit and shoes on point motivates me to have a great workout. I also can’t workout unless I have headphones and they have to be great headphones and great music. I have rose gold beats solo headphones that I use at the gym. They’re wireless so I can put my phone down while I’m working out.”

Tour Merchandise:

We all have a bit of a fashion fen in us, which makes watching artist’s chose their style, so enticing. Very exciting news for Tobias’ fans, he is collaborating with a blacklinxinc to give you all some dope clothing to wear on his upcoming tours.

21 Day Meal Prep

Hello Loves,

Well starting Monday I will be meal prepping and, I already planned out all of my workouts. As some of you may know, I have been really preparing to lose a good amount of weight from 30-40 pounds and, I took two days to sit down and meal prep as well as, write out a full fitness schedule. Yes, that is a long time but, I have a feeling that it will be well worth the time that it took me. I will be going to Arizona in the beginning of March and I was hoping to go anywhere from fifteen to twenty pounds lighter. I am so excited to see family friends, my friend and, the Grand Canyon! I love traveling and, being able to buy a ticket was super exciting. Now with even more motivation to shed those pounds I sat down and, worked out a schedule. I have one rest and, everyday I have two workouts and, always have either yoga or stretching as part of the two workouts. I think I balanced out everything well when it came to the workout schedule. I also, planned my meals with the help of Pinterest the meals for the first 21 days are around 1,500 calories. Yes, I know there is this whole debate about getting 2,000 calories a day which most of the time I have trouble consuming. I am still getting used to getting all the right nutrients and, protein after three years of being vegan and, meal prepping was a way to ensure that I would be having very healthy food that would sustain me. If I am feeling hungrier I can always eat something this is not to starve myself just so, I can gauge the calories and, see what works best for me. My job is very sedentary requiring me to sit a lot which is why my calorie intact is going to be a bit smaller. If I was riding a bike around town all day then yes, I would probably need over 2,500 calories but, since I’m not I am going to test this out and, see if it works well. I have my shopping list ready to go for Sunday and, will be meal prepping Sunday for 21 days. I have never made food for this amount of days but, I am really excited to see where this brings me. I will keep you updated throughout this series with one to two posts a week possibly on how the food is tasting, if I needed to alter the diet,  how the exercising is going, emotions of the process etc… Let me know what you think in the comments below!

Have an enlightening and adventurous day,
