Nicole Phelps on life, motherhood: Working out makes you a better person

In this special Weight Loss Wednesday, Team 12's Emma Jade joins Nicole Phelps for a work out.

She just celebrated her one year wedding anniversary with the greatest Olympian of all time and she's been taking care of their toddler, Boomer, and preparing for baby number two.

You could say Nicole Phelps has had her hands full juggling the family's busy schedules. But this mom still finds time to fit in a workout.

"It's going to make you a better person at the end of the day," Nicole said. "I'll even say it for Michael, because he'll have really bad days and I'll be like, 'you need to go workout because you'll be a better person to us.'"

"It's a reminder to me as well that as a mom and his wife, I've got to go do something for me. So it's taking that 'Me' time."

In a special Weight Loss Wednesday, Team 12's Emma Jade joined Nicole for a Barre3 workout class in Scottsdale. And to quote Emma after the class, "it was so hard."

"We came home from the Olympics and I made Michael come with me," Nicole said. "Michael was tortured."

Nicole, who did the class throughout her pregnancy with Boomer and is continuing, now, with baby number two, said the class has made her body stronger and even helped her during birth.

"For me it makes me feel beautiful, so I walk in that class and I come out, I'm uplifted, I feel a little taller," she said.

And speaking of baby number two, Nicole said she thinks they have a named already picked out, but she didn't reveal anything just yet.

"It was easier to name Boomer than our dog," she said.
