Summer is right around the corner. As Chicagoans, we look forward to this moment from August to May each year. We slay in the gym, choose more green smoothies (kale yeah) over Stan's donuts and have our favorite Class Pass studio's schedules memorized all in anticipation of that glorious city moment when the temps hit the 70s...and then the 80s...and then the 90s. Are you summer ready to hit North Avenue beach?
Let's be real. We're not always in the mood for a group fitness class or making a trip out to the gym. This is especially true if your only option is going after 5pm on a weekday (struggle is so real for all the 9-5ers). Don't let the obstacles keep you from getting to your fit body goal. Thankfully, we have amazing workout apps (Nike+ Training Club (NTC) app <3), printable programs (where my TIU and BBG girls at!) and a browser full of at-home workouts only a Google search away.
We all have our favorite home-workout moves that come up in those plans (love/hate relationship with Mr. Burpee). Here's 35-40 minutes of heart=pumping cardio and strength training moves that keep me goin'. Make time and be present. If you're feeling really antsy and just want to move throughout your day, you can break the workout out into parts. The point? Just move.
Sayonara excuses. Hello endorphins.
Still have some energy? Rest for 60 seconds and repeat.
