It's About Time

If you have ever spent more that 5 minutes with me, it is fairly obvious that I love fitness. I have learned so much (sometimes the hard way) in the 30 years that I have been teaching. What better way to share my passion than to start a blog and pass on the information that I share with clients on a day-to-day basis.

Exercise On The Go

Yes, I am going on vacation (yippee), and yes, I have traveling on my mind and yes, many of my clients are in and out, jet-setting here and there. I guess that is why I have had a couple of traveling exercise posts.   Here is a workout out you can pretty much do anywhere.  That means there is no excuse on vacation.   If you don't have access to weights in your hotel gym, you can  pack some resistance bands, pick up some rocks if you are camping, use water bottles or even a towel for an isometric hold.  Good luck and keep exercising.

  • 10 Exercises
  • 60 Seconds per exercise
  • 15 second break between each exercise (You can eliminate if you are feeling studly)
  • Rest 2 minutes between each cycle of 10 exercises (More if you need it.)
  • Repeat each cycle 2-4X or work for an hour.  
  • Goblet Plie' Squats-Hold heavy dumbbell in front like a goblet and move down and up.
  • Mountain Climbers-Plank position-can be at an incline-Run with high knees.
  • Squats with alternating Front arm raises.
  • Plank to side plank back to Plank-Repeat side, center, side-can be done at an incline.
  • Flying lunges. (Everyone loves these)
  • Arm Rows in squat position.
  • Side-to-side lunge-adding rotation with torso and reaching dumbbell downward,same direction as lunge.
  • Plank with hands on dumbbells-Push Up then single arm row-repeat side row , push-up, side row.
  • Alternating lunges with torso rotation
  • Overhead arm presses with Plie' squat quickly
Send me your favorite travel workout.  Good Luck

Here are some pictures of the exercises.  Some are shown with more than one way to be done.  Thanks to my wonderful models.
