Well, hello!!! I guess you could say it’s been awhile! (Like, it’s kind of embarrassing how long it’s been…) Since my last post we’ve moved from Minnesota, bought a home in California, and had a baby boy. I’ve still been teaching fitness classes, but now I’m officially certified to teach in a gym. I’ve been teaching a format called HIGH Fitness for a little over a year now, teaching bootcamp classes at the church, and have been subbing some extra classes on the side. I’ve also been asked pretty frequently lately to put little workouts together for different people, which is what led me to what I’ve put together for YOU! I think you’re going to LOVE it!
Here’s the thing, not everyone can go to the gym. Not everyone can go to group classes, or lessons, or whatever it is that costs an arm and a leg…but seriously, why is it so expensive?! Not everyone has the time to workout for an hour or two. It’s hard to find an hour here or an hour there to first of all get your kids in the car, then buckle up their carseats, take them to the childcare center, and THEN come up with your own workout. You finally get to the gym and are all excited and then you think, “okay, so now what? I mean I guess I’ll just run on the treadmill, lift a couple of weights and call it good.” You’ve said that before, I’ve said that before, we’ve all said it. Am I right?
But what if you could take out like 2-3 or even 4 of those steps? What if you didn’t even have to GO to the gym? What if you could stay home in your living room and do a workout? Or maybe you like the gym, so you STILL load your kids and drop them off, but you don’t have to think about your workout, all you do is pull it up on your phone, or take out the paper you’ve printed off? What if you don’t have a ton of time? What if you only needed 30 minutes to get a good, fat-burning muscle building workout in? THIS is what I’m offering, and THIS is why I’m excited!
I’ve created a 6 week at home OR in gym dumbbell workout. All you need are some dumbbells, a timer, a soft surface (like a yoga mat or carpet to lay on occasionally), and 30 minutes dedicated to your sweaty self. I’ve created a brand new workout for every single day, so you’ll never be board. The format of the workout will alternate week by week, so you don’t get used to doing the same thing over and over again. It’s consistent and easy to understand, but it pushes you to push yourself and work hard for those 30 minutes.
Each week you’ll start with 3 HIIT workouts (High Intensity Interval Training); strength and cardio combined, keeping your heart rate up and muscles strong. Monday you’ll work your biceps and back, Tuesday you’ll work your legs, and Wednesday will be your triceps and chest. Thursday you will have an “active rest day” which means you’ll choose for 30 minutes what you’d like to do to get your heart rate up. Some ideas include: Jogging, biking, swimming, elliptical, stairs, yoga, or anything else you can think of that goes along with your skill level. Friday and Saturday are both strength days. Friday you’ll work your upper body and Saturday will be lower body. Sunday is your day to rest and reflect. Here are some examples:
I’ve also included goal sheets for each week as well as each day so you can stay focused and remember the “why” for your workout. Writing your goals down along with the steps you’re going to take to make it happen will GREATLY improve the likelihood of you reaching your goals and progressing towards something even greater!
Not gonna lie, you’re going to be sweaty and sore after the first few days. This is what you want! This is what’s going to “Jumpstart” you back onto the healthy habit train of getting in a solid workout.
