Health | A Few Favorite Workouts

Okay, we are in week 3 of my 90 day fitness challenge and I am feeling great! I am down 5 lbs, but most importantly I have a lot more energy and the inches are coming off! 

I know I am always looking for ways to switch up my workouts and avoid getting bored with the same routines each week so I have compiled some of my favorites! Some of these are from Pinterest, blogs I love and of course Ashlan Get PHIT! Ashlan offers many online meal plans and workout plans that are sure to push you and also help you with whatever your health and fitness goals may be! You can take a look at her packages offered here.


----> This first workout is perfect for the days when you can't make it to the gym. For me it is fun to switch it up and workout at home because my 2 year old tries to follow along! He absolutely loves to do lunges and tries his hardest to jump rope, it keeps me laughing through my whole workout! You can find the whole workout here, from SimplySadieJane.com!




----> This next from @ashlandee is a killer, when you are done you will love it! If you cannot do this with perfect form, scale it down to 1/2 or 1/3 and work your way up to the full WOD!




----> I love this next workout because it is 20 minutes, who doesn't have time for that and it is a good workout for first thing in the morning! I found this about a year ago through Pinterest and you can find the full post about this workout here!





----> This is one I did at the gym last week and I loved it! I don't know why but I love mixing in the rowing machine, it is something different! This is from @ashlandee from Ashlan Get PHIT!
