How Lululemon CEO Christine Day works out at work by Alex Konrad @FortuneMagazine December 4, 2012, 10:10 AM EDT E-mail Tweet Facebook Google Plus Linkedin Share icons Christine Day at a Lululemon in Vancouver FORTUNE — As CEO of a global athletic brand (new stores just opened in London and Hong Kong), Christine Day travels two weeks out of five — all while keeping up a fitness regimen befitting the company she leads. Whenever she visits a store, she has Lululemon LULU employees who run in-store classes take her through a training session. And it’s the staffer’s choice — anything from tossing a weighted kettlebell to a military-inspired boot camp. “I swear,” Day says, “sometimes they pick boot camp just to see if I break.” The team sweat sessions are the perfect encapsulation of Day’s road-tested routine: merge work with the workout. My survival skills Meet at the gym. In the morning, after I get up and do at least 25 sun salutations (to get the kinks out of my back), I go to the gym. Anyone I’m traveling with I have meet me at the gym before breakfast — that way, I have to show up! Band aid. I travel with a resistance band so I can lie on my back on my yoga mat and do a series of leg movements. I also try to stay in Westins with workout rooms — they have the stability ball and stationary bike. Hit the trails. I always ask my assistant to check if there is a natural running route from the hotel to our store. Even better: a hotel or store near a trail system, which is the case in Georgetown. It makes for a more active run. The Bar code. I take energy bars with me on airplanes — LaraBars and Clif Bars — to avoid the in-flight food. I will eat the fruit or cheese plates they serve. Set a goal. Last January I started training for a half-marathon we sponsor, the Lululemon SeaWheeze race in Vancouver. This winter I plan to do a 30-day yoga challenge, and lose an inch off my waist by June. Stay accountable. I track all my runs on RunKeeper, then send Facebook updates to my trainer. I take a picture of myself at the end of a run too, and update that. Anything I miss, I make up on the back end. Posting about it keeps me accountable.
