I often get asked in relation to fitness “what do you do for your workouts” NOT because I have an amazing flawless figure (because I definitely don’t) but I am fit for the most part and try to be healthy and I love fitness. The truth is that that question should not be easy to answer if you are doing it right. You shouldn’t have a set routine that you do every single day, or you are not going to continue to see results. I continually change it up. For my cardio I will say…during the winter months I did my elliptical a LOT (see my last post to see how you can get your own portable at home elliptical for less than $150). Now that the weather is warmer I try to go for long walks, do my elliptical, or do some form of cardio video. I love Valerie Water’s Hot In A Hurry Series- it is about $60 on ValerieWaters.com it is cardio and strength all in one HIIT workout…and there are plenty of FREE videos I do on YouTube as well by Valerie Waters, Tracy Anderson, Hip Hop Abs, Jillian Michaels to name a few of my fave cardios. Same goes for toning up I like to lift heavier, lift lighter, do Yoga or Pilates, Barre, Dancing (Solo in the house…just bust a move or have a family dance party those are way fun), or a number of videos for free on YouTube by Blogilates, Valerie Waters, Tracy Anderson or Jillian Michaels. Just make sure you do both strength and cardio, everyday if you can, or stagger throughout the week. Keep switching up your workouts so your muscles continue to be confused as to what is coming next and continue to get sore. Better sore than sorry! Try to find things that you enjoy as well, so you are likely to stick with it! For more info. on more specifics tweet or facebook me!
