Hannah Bronfman is a force to be reckoned with. She has turned this passion for wellness and food into a career by investing in NYC hot-spot Acme Restaurant and founding the brand HBFIT, a unique online destination for all things Health, Beauty + Fitness. Bronfman was also one of the co-founders of Beautified, an app that that books last-minute beauty and wellness appointments right on your smartphone. Oh and did we mentioned that she is a hit international DJ, setting the vibe at parties around the world?
We were lucky enough to catch up with the incredibly stylish, humble and hard-working woman herself to talk everything from career highlights to health and fitness secrets.
Beautified was born out of necessity. I needed to find a last minute beauty appointment and it suddenly clicked that the beauty industry needed to be accessible by an on-demand platform.
I found co-founders who shared the same thirst for creating something revolutionary.
HBFIT started out as a hashtag that I used on social media to showcase my healthy lifestyle. It became something that my audience wanted more of, so I created a site dedicated to all things Health, Beauty and Fitness. I was constantly inspired by my community of driven women who want to live mindful and healthy lives.
My workday changes all the time because I travel a lot for my DJ career, but when I’m in NY a typical day is:
My 2016 Adidas campaign!
I would be very careful about who I go into business with.
I think what Jessica Alba has done with her career and business is amazing. Jennifer Fisher is also #momgoals as she to has a booming business and is always cooking for her family, making her the ultimate multitasking mommy.
I started DJing in college. It was just a hobby but then I soon realized I could make a good living out of it.
Finding balance is key! I recently had a talk series with Sirius XM called The Balance with Hannah Bronfman where I discussed finding balance for people who have multitasking careers. For me I make dining in a priority at least once or twice a week. We travel a lot so we like to have friends over when we cook and be cozy at home with the people we love. I also like to make multiple meetings on one day so that I have a full day to test recipes, create content etc. When I travel I try to do research and make time to explore a city from a wellness perspective.
I like to switch it up. I take dance classes, Pilates, hot yoga, boxing and also train with trainers. I’m constantly trying new places because as the editor for a wellness brand it’s kind of comes with the job.
PureBoost X from adidas.
I live in the East Village in Manhattan.
I love 305 Fitness, Peridance, Sal Anthony movement Salon & Nicole Winhofer’s NW Studio. Jeepney and Sadelles are great for brunch. Date night can be spent at Sobaya for Ramen, The Eddy, The Bowery, Babu ji or Oiji.
I am very mindful of what I eat during the week and not so concerned on the weekends. I workout and eat right so that when I do indulge, there is no guilt. I am a happy eater!
I add gelatin to my morning matcha. It has 11 grams of protein in 1 tbsp and has no flavor. It’s great especially if you don’t have time or are not a morning eater. It’s also great for my skin too. I also do infrared sauna once a week. It’s $30 for an hour and is a great sweat/ provides me with a time that I can meditate.
I love a bath with oils and salts. Always calming and refocusing.
We just launched my new series with POPSUGAR called Hannahgram! Follow me on Snapchat (@hannahbgood) for everything else going down in my life!
Made a matcha latte
I stared a charity called Seed Street. We refurbish old shipping containers with hydroponic systems to grow organic produce in communities that don’t have access to local food
Boxing with my trainer or class at Shadow Box NYC
The MET Gala
Hmmmm chia powder?
I’m actually more of a salty girl than sweet!
