Funny thing, this is a fitness blog, but I often check in with food updates vs. exercise. Why is that? Probably because the workout portion takes way more time, and most conveniently would require me to record my workouts for my blog sans babies. As you can imagine, that’s not always easy around these parts.
However, behind the scenes (ie. behind the piles of toys, dishes, and laundry), I’ve been putting together workouts and the other material I’ll need to start an online training program.
I’ve been working hard to create fun and quick workouts you can do anywhere with little or no equipment. And today I’m excited to share a sample workout video.
Today’s workout will burn your full body. Glutes, legs, arms, back, chest, and abs–nothing is missed. And you’ll work on increasing your stamina because as you blast from exercise to exercise you’re getting in some cardio too (hello, high intensity interval training)!
You’re aiming for 10 to 15 repetitions of each exercise and the goal is to complete 3 or more sets, but really do all that you can. Even just one or two sets is better than none! You will want a step or chair and a resistance band if possible. If you don’t have the band, these are the couple changes I would make: do the lateral walks in a low squat (the lower the better)! And if you don’t have a step, do standing knee taps vs. step ups (hold your hands at chest height and lift your knee to meet your hands).
Starting next week you can join a FREE training group and access five more workouts like this, along with lots of other helpful information that will help you commit living a healthy life. Starting the first day of spring (March 20), I am launching a paid online training group, but from March 5-12 you can test out a FREE trial workout group.
This will be a private Facebook group and when you sign up you’ll receive an email inviting you to join a community of like-minded people who are committing to regular exercise and healthy habits including nutritious eating! We’ll be moving together, motivating one another, and sharing recipes.
Five days next week I will post a quick workout video, like the sample above. This is a workout that should take you between 15 and 20 minutes to complete. You will have the option to complete all exercises simply using body weight or utilizing equipment you have at home or at a gym. I will cue for safety on each movement and will be able to give information about how you can scale an exercise back or ramp it up for a bigger challenge!
Everyday, I will post some of my favorite recipes, plus I’ll share some of my favorite recipe sites and apps so you can find recipes that truly work for your tastes and budget.
Additionally, you can chat with other members of the group so you can share what’s helpful for you and seek advice about what’s been challenging. We will cheer each other on and I can answer any questions and provide professional health and fitness advice.
I am PUMPED to start this group. Work out on your own time, in your own space, but with professional guidance and as a part of a community. It’s a workout for a new era and I’m thrilled to be a part of this trend.
To join the trial group, it’s simple. Complete the quick form below and click, “Submit.” Before Monday you’ll receive an email inviting you to the group and we’ll get started together! Sign up now and share with your friends!
PS. Signing up for the trial group WILL NOT sign you up for the group starting March 20. Watch for details about the paid group soon.
