5 Things

Drea Wheeler’s Wake-Up Call: Squats,
Hip-Hop, and a Coconut Butter Coffee


| founder, Bodylicious

An average morning for Drea Wheeler starts with three things: singing, squats, and dancing. Oh, and a coconut butter coffee. “Seriously—what’s better than that?” says Wheeler, who grew up in Texas but now calls Montreal home. She’s also the force behind Bodylicious, a heart-pumping cardio-dance sweat session she teaches at Victoria Park, a multistudio fitness boutique in Westmount. “It’s a place where people can get away from life’s craziness and focus on themselves—even if it’s just for an hour.”

Below, five things that help Wheeler get through her own jam-packed day.

    “Dry-brushing is essential for keeping my skin looking healthy. Not only does it get rid of dry, dead skin cells; it leaves my skin feeling so silky smooth. This one has a nice long handle, so you can reach around your body with ease—from down your back to your toes. It’s so easy to use.”

    “It’s no secret that living in Montreal requires a pair of rain boots. Hunters will always and forever be my go-to rain boots. They are not too heavy or chunky, and what I love about them is I could easily slip them off before teaching my classes and slip them back on when I need to go back outside.”
