Quickie Workout Tips

I have found that when I am really busy that it’s great to have a quick and easy workout options. Here are some of my favorite ways to get my heart pumping! 

One of my favorite ways to get in a quick and enjoyable workout is to take a walk while listening to inspirational music or audio books!

Workout Videos can also be the great tools for exercising when you're running short on time. These are just a few of my favorites in my workout library:

Turbo Jam, Tae Bo, “The Firm” Workout’s, Denise Austin. Insanity, Turbo Fire, Jillian Michaels’ Kick-Box Fast Fix Cir Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, and HipHopAbs

If you do have time to make it to the gym, but want to ‘shake things up’, workout classes are often the perfect solution to beat boredom and get a timely workout in! The good thing about workout classes is that they are great for any fitness level, and most instructors offer many different modifications! Below is a list of some of my favorite workout classes: Dance Fitness, Kickboxing, Spinning, Bootcamp, Suspension Training, Body Sculpting.

If you simply are not 'in the mood' to do any type of traditional workout, no worries! There are plenty of ways to get active outside of the typical gym setting that don’t have to feel like your working out at all!

Below is a list of fun activities that I personally have found to be a blast, all while getting your heart rate up!  Line dancing, indoor sports, Wii Fit games, Biking, hiking, roller skating, canoeing, kayaking, washing the car, gardening, skiing, water sports, and playing with the kids.

I hope this list of quick and fun workout ideas inspires you to get active regardless of what situation you find yourself in! There are so many ways to get moving that don't require a machine at the gym! I'd love to hear from all of you...
