You get some iced tea and make it smoove:

Some suggestions for fitness at home, for free, and for fun

January 5, 2017 Leave a comment

The holidays… girl, please. They were sorta kinda brutal if everyone really wanted to be honest with themselves. I did more than a bit of baking, cooking high octane meals, and stress eating (don’t even get me started on work). But you know what? Everyone gets a reset in the new year. What counts is how long you keep your reset going to get healthy.

In my experience, it doesn’t have to be high intensity all the time. Don’t get me wrong, if you like HIIT, by all means. The main goal is to do something that you find fun.

If it’s skipping, then do it.

If it’s power walking, do it.

If it’s chasing after your kids, do it.

Just have fun with it.

With that in mind, I thought I might give some examples of the fun stuff that can be found for free on the Youtubes. Examples, nothing more, but if it gets one reader up and moving, then I will feel a Zen-like serenity while I sit in lotus pose on top of the closest mountain. (Note, I live nowhere near a mountain, but it’s fun imagery).

So:

Barre:

 

Beginning Yoga (with Lesley Fightmaster):

 

Cardio Hip Hop (The Fitness Marshal has a lot of routines online and they’re very fun):

 

Or if you want to learn how to use bodyweight (http://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness is a good resource), then by all means.

 

Feel free to comment about your favorite online workouts and routines. I can always use more suggestions for my personal fitness aspirations 🙂
