Mini Fitness Series

Hi guys! As promised, today I’m kicking off my mini fitness series that will be running the first three weeks of January. I get a lot of questions on what I do for exercise, how I stay fit, and the alike. Plus with the whole New Years resolutions thing happening at the moment I thought it would be a perfect time to share some of my favorite workouts, tips, and tricks for staying healthy and fit. I’ve also partnered up with K-Deer to show you my favorite workout sets. Seriously these sets are SO cute, SO flattering, and highly functional. You need one. Anyways, let’s get to it!

P.S. I decided to include exercises that were equipment optional. Therefore you can perform these workouts with or without a gym!

P.S.S. I’m not a personal trainer nor do I claim to be. These are simply just exercises and tips I’ve learned and utilized on my personal fitness journey. Use them at your own discretion.

Let’s Get Fit; My Go-to 30 Minute Full Body Workout

Getting Fit Quick

Let’s be real, somedays it seems like I barely have time to get my to-do list done for the day. But I usually try to get some form of workout in everyday. You can read more on my overall health and fitness plan here. For those days when I am in a pinch for time I like to knock out a quick, but intense, 30 minute workout. To learn more about this workout read on.

Just A Bit Of Cardio

Wearing pheel active wear sudio sweden headphone wearing pheel activewear sudio sweden headphones wearing pheel activewear sudio sweden headphones I have to admit cardio is not very enjoyable for me, but that’s why I do it. I’m in the gym to get a good workout and challenge myself, not to be comfortable. It doesn’t hurt that it keeps you slim either 😉

Although I am not a huge fan of cardio it’s not too bad in this 30 minute workout because its short and sweet. Well, maybe not sweet but its short!

Walk/Jog/Run

I usually hop on the treadmill for this exercise but you could do it outside as well.

• 0:00-3:00 – 3mph (a swift walk)

• 3:00-4:00 – 4mph

• 4:00-6:00 – 3mph

• 6:00-7:00 – 5mph

• 7:00-9:00 – 3mph

• 9:00-10:00 – 6mph

• 10:00-12:00 – 3mph

• 12:00-13:00 – 7mph

• 13:00-15:00 – 3mph

This is a pretty quick little cardio session but I end up working up a good sweat and feeling great after. Feel free to adjust the speeds and times at your own discretion, this is just an example of what I do.

Full Body Workout

I try to target all the major areas for these quick workouts, that way you get more bang for your buck so to speak. Heres an example of some full body exercises I would do.

• Jump Squats: 3 sets of 10-15

These are killer and will make you so sore, but that’s the point 😉

Here is a video on jump squats.

• Burpees: 3 sets of 10-15

As you all know burpees kind of suck, but they will help you burn calories quick and engage all parts of your body. So just get them done and move on!

Here is a video on burpees.

• Mountain Climbers: 3 sets of 10-15

These don’t suck quite as bad as the others. Although they are more enjoyable then the two other exercises they still engage your core, legs, and arms. Perfect!

Here is a video on mountain climbers.

Overall this should take you only about 30 minutes. That’s a very small portion of your day and for the most part is usually achievable. After doing these exercises you will definitely burn some cals and work some muscles. Let me know how you like this workout and if this post was helpful!
