You’ve been asking for a new challenge, so here it is! I know the previous challenges have helped hundreds (thousands?) of our Instagram followers to start their fitness journey, find the path to a healthier life, improve their physical skills, lose weight…

Throught the next 4 weeks I will guide you to a fitter you! Don't forget, healthy eating goes a long way toward your fitness journey! What we eat plays a major role in how we feel and look. There are extreme benefits of being conscious of what and how we eat, and it takes a lot less effort than you think. You can find more nutrition info in our eBook.
Here's our workout schedule for the next 4 weeks:
Monday: legs and abs
Wednesday: legs and arms
Friday: legs and abs
I like combinating moderate and vigorous intensity activities. That’s why I love small but intense circuit routines (easy to fit in a busy schedule) combined with aerobic activities like cycling, swimming, jogging, yoga, pilates, hiking, (or elliptical trainer, stairmaster, spinning if you like going to the gym)… These can be great and fun varied activities, training many different muscle groups and can be done at moderate pace.
Suggested weekly schedule:
Monday: circuit workout – legs and abs
Tuesday: your choice of aerobic activity
Wednesday: circuit workout – legs and arms
Thursday: your choice of aerobic activity
Friday: circuit workout – legs and abs
Saturday: your choice of aerobic activity
Sunday: rest or aerobic activities
As I said in my article No more excuses like "I'm a Mom, I can't work out anymore...", your workouts are your Mommy time. Once you find a way to include them in your daily routine, you will crave them! Feel free to increase to number of reps (or seconds) and rounds as you get stronger. I advise you to warm-up before you exercise. It can be as easy as a minute combining high-knees , jumping jacks or any other moderate moves activating your whole body and cardiorespiratory system. Take care of your body and protect your back. Don’t forget to take a few minutes to stretch afterward.
See you tomorrow!
