Here are a few of my absolute favorite workouts that you can do anywhere! These are the style of workouts that I teach in my Wednesday afternoon class. Some days I change it up and add weights, resistance bands, stability balls and whatever I can find at the gym to get a good workout for everyone. The ones below don't require any equipment. All you need is you...and a little bit of energy and motivation! It can go a long way.
For the one above, start with set 1. Set a timer for 7 minutes and begin with the lunges, then tricep dips and last burpees. Once you finish, start again at the lunges. Keep going until your timer stops! Take a 2-3 minute rest and grab some water, then repeat for sets 2 and 3!
Recently I decided to take a simple game and turn it into an awesome workout! Or maybe I turned a workout into a game. It's up to you to decide!
Who has played UNO before? It's probably been quite a while right? Well I stumbled upon a deck of UNO cards while at the grocery store a few weeks ago, and came up with this super fun and creative workout. It makes your workout fly by because you don't know what's coming next. You could have 1 squat, 10 burpees or even 5 minutes of cardio! It depends on how you shuffle the deck!
I'm a firm believer that making workouts fun and changing things up with what makes your stick to it! So shake it up. Create a workout that goes along with your favorite tv show or movie. Turn a game into a workout. Find your favorite park on a beautiful day and do something new. Take a rainy day and turn it into something that gets you moving in doors. It's up to you!
Like I said before, some days I'm off and I'm tired and I don't want to do it! Find a balance. Shoot for a few days a week and go from there. You can find a way to enjoy working out. I did! And then I made a career out of it!
What are your favorite ways to work out? How do you keep it fun so you don't want to quit?
