TV toning workout

Guys I am loving your love on my first workout post! So many people shared posts and stories about trying my blogged workout and in-person demo classes! I love it. As promised, my new workout of the week post is live every FRIDAY at MIDNIGHT! This means you can wake up Friday morning and take advantage of fitness Friday, or save it for the weekend or next week!

Also, well aware of the title of this workout - don’t let it fool you, it’s still challenging! I title my workouts when I write them to help me keep track of when and why I did them. This particular workout was written with the intent that I could watch TV while doing it. I don’t necessarily recommend watching TV while working out, but sometimes I need it. Some days I am lethargic from sitting all day and I want to move my body but also want to lounge and do nothing. Enter, the TV workout. I get the best of both worlds. I can tune out and work up a sweat without thinking about it. Feel free to skip the TV and turn up the music to get focused and push yourself!


If you have confusion about an exercise or questions about making a move less or more challenging, please comment or contact me - my goal is to share workouts that everyone can do and I am happy to provide those modifications on request. Additionally, remember you can google any of the moves to get a demo!

Body weight burnout

This is my first workout post. I am excited to share a lot more of the workouts I do at home and outside on this fitness page. I don’t workout for a specific physique goal (ie. fitness competition, strength, or giant thighs). I workout for life. For a healthy heart, muscle maintenance, and stress relief. The workouts I will be sharing don’t build up to achieve an obscure result, they are meant to challenge the cardiovascular system and at the very least activate muscle to maintain, and hopefully build muscle. This is the point of exercise. When we workout to complement and support our body we find increased metabolism and decreased injury. I want you to enjoy making these workouts your own.

I hope this page helps you find motivation to try out a workout at home. I will start to link to my favorite equipment in future posts. If you have confusion about an exercise or questions about making a move less or more challenging, please comment or contact me - my goal is to share workouts that everyone can do and I am happy to provide those modifications on request. Additionally, if there is a different format in which you prefer to find your workouts please let me know.
