Getting dressed, mentally prepared & motivated to go to the gym can be so daunting.
That’s why I love to have a few pre-planned at-home workouts handy. That way I can blast some calories when I just can’t get myself in the car to go to the gym.
When you workout at home you don’t have to worry about much.
There’s no wasting time because of how wrecked your hair looks. And no to show anyone that new pimple that decided to take shape on your chin.
Plus, at home, you don’t have to worry about your phone dying mid-set.
Or the judgemental eyes on you as you snap that must have selfie or 2… or maybe even 20.
The Perks Of Working Out At Home
You get to save gas money plus afterward, you can bathe in a shower where at least you know whose hair is circling the drain.
And on days when the gym seems a million miles away, and the last place you wanna be, you should still be moving your body and getting your sweat on.
So why not have a game-plan for when those moments come, because they definitely will.
But don’t worry… we’ve got you covered and you’ll be prepared this time.
Proper Preparation Beforehand Prevents Poor Excuses
Go on, roll out a mat or an old blanket and get moving! All in the comfort of your own living room or backyard.
With the “Gym-less Workout Series” we’ll be providing you with the at home or on the go workouts we do when we can’t (or just won’t) go to the gym.
We know you just don’t feel like it sometimes too so… print out this workout, bookmark it, or like the video on Youtube so it can be accessed easily.
And keep your eyes peeled, we’ll be adding more workouts over time.
That way you’ll never get bored with what you’re doing. Plus, you’ll have enough workouts handy for when you just don’t feel like gettin ya sweat on next time.
With that, here’s the first workout of the series. Remember to push through!
Even when you feel like you can’t do another move or set. When your mind tells your body to do another move, it must listen.
Just do it! Challenge yourself and make it sweaty!

It requires no equipment besides a mat and a timer (use your phone).
Each round of the workout should take about 10-15 minutes to complete.
Feel free to do fewer rounds if you’re running short on time.
Take rests as needed, but no more than 1 minute of rest between exercises.
