Coming on the show to help the women have a productive conversation about fitness was Amanda Kloots, who advised the women not to wait. "My advice always is, don’t wait until Monday," Kloots said. "You know, a lot of times 'Oh, I'll wait until Monday.' No, start today."

"I always say, if you have 10 minutes in your day — and we do, everyone can find 10 minutes. You can. I mean I'll look on Instagram for 10 minutes," Kloots continued, recommending a jump rope for a quick and simple workout. "Work that 10 minutes. Go out, move your body."
