If you’re already involved in the Love Yourself Fitness Challenge, then you’re already doing
some kind of exercise, right? If not, consider this your friendly nudge to get moving!
All we ask is that you do 15 minutes of intentional exercise each day.
If you’ve already been doing your 15 minutes, consider adding a second session to your day–whether consecutive or not.
What’s intentional exercise?
For our purposes, intentional exercise is defined as workout time that is done for the sake of just moving your body.
It doesn’t count if you would have had to do it anyway. (For example, the 15-minute walk from your train to your office doesn’t count unless you used to just drive to the office.)
Ask yourself: What is your favorite workout routine?
It can be something informal, such as dancing or walking. It could be something fun, like playing Just Dance or Wii Tennis with your kids.
Or maybe, it’ll be something a little saucier–say, a spirited romp with your life partner or spouse?
Nearly any physical activity will do, but today, let’s talk about more formal or organized workout programs. Check out some of my favorite free workout videos right here.
Need some help? Here are a few of my favorite workout routines and programs.
While I love me some Leslie Sansone and just about anything that teaches me how to dance, I have recently developed some new favorites–mostly due to the fact that they are giving me extremely noticeable results in a shorter period of time.
Here’s my list, which, to be honest, also includes just about anything from Beachbody.com!
Some of my personal favorites include:
- INSANITY – A 60 DAY TOTAL-BODY CONDITIONING PROGRAM put on DVD – click here
