Easy At-Home Workouts

March 20, 2020

T25

I love this program! The program is 25 minutes a day for ten weeks. It requires little space (I do it in my living room), and you only need a mat and low weights. Last spring, as a working mom, I wanted to tone up for a vacation to Mexico. I was able to squeeze the workouts in before work and saw results after a few weeks. Even when I’m not following the entire program, this is my go to option for a quick ab and arm workout.

Insanity

Insanity is similar to T25, but longer and more intense. My husband and I started this program about five weeks before I became pregnant. It was fun to do it together, but it was intense! We were both complete sweaty messes at the end of each workout. There is a lot of jumping and high intensity movements, so I decided to stop the program when I found out I was pregnant. However, there are modifications and would be very doable after baby.

Bikini Body Guides Kayla Itsines

My friend started this program last spring and I decided to try some of the workouts with her. It is awesome! It is a 12-week full body workout program, and the workouts are challenging. It is tough, but I saw results quickly. You can follow the thousands of women who are completing the program on Instagram. It is motivating to see their real results and there are lots of moms completing the program postpartum.

Some of these at home programs can be expensive. Ask a friend to borrow their DVDs or see if they are willing to split the program with you. My sisters and I often share our DVDs with each other when we are done or need a break. It’s a fun way for me to connect with my sisters because we can hold each other accountable even when we aren’t completing the workouts together.

Fitbit

I received the Fitbit as a gift last year, and it seriously motivates me to keep moving! My sisters, husband, and I constantly compete for the most steps. We love to participate in the “Work Week Hustle.” It helps keep us moving and keeps us connected while living in different states.

Running/Walking Outside

We are so fortunate to have amazing weather in Charleston. I love to walk/jog/run the Ravenel Bridge with my daughter. She loves the fresh air and looking out at the water. Afterwards we have lunch and play at the playground under the bridge. Win win for both of us!
