Fashion influencer & Floss Bar patient, this is Joey Ruocco

We caught up with Joey who recently came in for a Floss Bar smile upgrade to learn some of his best wellness, fitness and healthy food tips! 

Tell us a bit about you and what you do?

I am a 25 year old fashion influencer from NYC! I also work as a Merchandiser for Macy's! I love travelling and exploring new places and adventures.

What is your home teeth cleaning routine like?

I brush 2x daily as well as use mouth wash. I try to floss weekly but often forget. I would like to add more to my routine!

What are your best wellness tips for busy people?

I live by the 80/20 rule. Try to make healthy choices with what you eat and do 80% of the time. Leave room for a lazy day or a bad meal because life is too short to not indulge. But try to eat healthy 80% of the time and eat proportionally. Also try to be active daily even it is just a walk or stretching at home.

Where do you go to get healthy food in NYC?

I work in midtown - so i am limited to the options near me but I love Sweetgreen salads and Market Crates, I often prepare my own meals and follow recipes from Cooking Light magazine!

Lastly, how do you stay so insanely fit? What is your exercise routine?

I try to make it a part of my daily routine and lifestyle so it feels less like a chore. I also switch up my workouts to keep it interesting and to keep my body from becoming too comfortable. I will run 2-3x a week, lift weights 2-3x  a week, play soccer here and there. Attend a yoga class 1-2x a week. I also try to attend some bootcamp style classes or HIIT workouts to get a really tough workout in 1x a week! But diet is most important or this is all wasted effort.
