“I found exercising has been more helpful in relieving the symptoms,” she said. “I do a lot of cardio, like walking and cycling. At that time of the month, the fibroids flare up, and when I exercise it helps me not feel so much pain.” That also may be why, soon after she had Reign, she was sharing snapback photos:
I’m sure you read the title and asked, ‘What the hell is a ‘boo camp?'”
For those wondering, it’s a couple’s workout. Toya Wright and boyfriend Robert “Red” Rushing, who is the father of her daughter Reign, are working together to make their health and fitness a priority this year. The couple is working with Wright’s trainer, Kory Phillips, for some intense workout sessions. Toya shared a couple of videos of their efforts inside of Phillips’ spacious studio in Atlanta. With music blasting and even some strobe lights going, the two did flexed their muscles on the cable machines with rowing, pull-downs, crossovers and curls. In another video, they used the squat machine, did squat walks, balanced on a bosu ball and utilized free weights to feel the burn. Toya shared that she wants to lose 15 pounds and is thankful “to have a great partner that keeps you motivated” in her man “Red.”
Rushing hasn’t posted any videos of their sessions, but he did share a photo with the acronym #WNM19, which stands for “Weight No More 2019.” As he put it, “This will be a huge year,” instructing followers to stay tuned.
The couple’s trainer is known for transforming the bodies of Atlanta’s biggest stars, including Marlo Hampton, Kandi and Riley Burruss (whomhe helped shed more than 50 pounds), as well as Wright’s daughter, Reginae Carter, so it should be easy for him to be able to help the couple get where they want to be physically. But working out is nothing new to Wright. Before she had her daughter last year, she revealed in 2017 to PEOPLE that she changed her diet and started working out four times a week to help deal with some pesky fibroids.
