Must Have Fitness Favorites!

It’s been a while since I shared a few of my favorites products so I figured I would highlight a few of my fitness favorites! I know not everyone is up for having a big gym membership and it can be pretty intimidating attending classes in boutique studios. That being said, there’s no excuse for not working up a sweat at home!

Must Have Fitness Favorites!

With many free videos on YouTube and all kinds of workouts on Pinterest, it’s easy to find something to do to get your heart pumping and the sweat pouring. Here’s a few things I believe can help you get on your way to a good exercise routine.

Fitness Favorite #1: Ab Roller

This guy is cheap and will have your abs burning in seconds! You can work every inch of your abdominal by rolling this straight ahead or at an angle. Remembering to keep your hips low and your back straight will help you power through this exercise. The great thing about this is that it’s small and portable so you can take this anywhere!

Fitness Favorite #2: Exercise Ball

Having an exercise ball really helps take your workouts to another level! Doing normal sit ups and crunches on the ground is fine but to really work your stabilizer muscles, I would recommend giving them a try on the exercise ball. Once you’re feeling confident with sit ups, you can try doing push ups with your feet on the ball!

Fitness Favorite #3: Small Weights

Having a small set of weights at home is all around a good idea. You can get in a quick arm circuit if you have ten minutes. I even do a small workout while sitting on the couch with my small dumbbells. Don’t discount these weights just because they are small. You can get a good burn even with small weights at high repetitions. If you’re up for a challenge, you can use your weights along with your exercise ball.

Fitness Favorite #4: Resistance Bands

I don’t get any commission from this one but these are absolutely amazing. Resistance or “booty bands” are great because they come in all levels of resistances and the workouts are endless! I was given these for Christmas and I love incorporating these into my daily routine. You’ll receive three workout cards with this set and there’s plenty of videos online. If you buy only one thing on this list, I would buy these!

Fitness Favorite #5: Foam Roller

It looks painful but trust me, everyone needs a foam roller! I prefer the foam rollers with the trigger point bits so you really get into those sore muscles. Once you first starting getting active, you may be sore for a few days. Foam rolling will help get rid of that soreness quicker. Even after a long day of sitting at my desk, the foam roller feels amazing. Once you find that “hurts so good” sensation, you’ll know what I mean!

Exciting News! 

I love Monday’s but this one is even better! I am so excited to share with everyone that I am now a Beachbody coach! I love health and fitness and I want to help others along in their journey to a happier and healthier life.

Ever since I’ve started my fitness journey, it’s been easier to stay consistent with friends by my side. I want to help others like others have helped me! Whenever I was struggling with motivation, I could always count on my friends to get me through. From Facebook to Instagram, there’s so many amazing ladies who are in this with me!

Eating well is such a crucial part of any health journey. Until the beginning of this year, I truly never understood that you couldn’t run away from your bad eating habits. I hit a plateau about April and I was really feeling frustrated. It wasn’t until I learned how to eat properly through some amazing ladies on the Beachbody team. Seeing their journeys really inspired me to continue to learn and improve.

I haven’t always been an active person so starting out was definitely a struggle for me. With so many meal plans and workout programs out there, it’s easy to get overwhelmed! However, Beachbody has so many different programs that you’re bound to find one that will meet your needs! And the best part is that you receive a meal plan and as a couch I can help you out through your journey. You have a built in support network that can’t be beat!

If you’re struggling with eating right and staying active, let’s get in touch so I can help! I can set you up with a meal plan and workout program and provide the support you need to be successful. Today, I will begin to incorporate the 21Day Fix with my marathon training. I would love it if you joined me during my journey! I will post on Facebook and Instagram daily about the programs and how they fit into my life. Please feel free to reach out to me on any platform if you have any questions or would like to hear more!
