Workout of the Day (equipment needed)

Time to go to the gym, but short on time?  Here is an awesome 15 minute workout for you.  The key is to run through this circuit as many times as you can within 15 minutes.  You are moving for efficiency and time.  Complete everything as quickly as possible. My advice – try to have everything you need set up in one location or near each other for speed.  As with any workout, please make sure you stretch and properly warm up before you do this.  Enjoy!

400m run/sprint (about 1/4 mile)

40 Air Squats

30 Butterfly sit-ups

20 Triceps Pushups 

10 Pull ups (using assistance if needed)

About Food4Thought

I am no fitness expert. I am simply someone who has found joy in fitness and nutrition. I am a certified group fitness instructor. I’ve been teaching at the local health club for about 3 years now. While Zumba was my first love, I have since added Total Conditioning, Bodyworks plus Abs, and Core to my repertoire of classes. I work with a personal trainer to help me reach my fitness goals that I cannot obtain through group fitness alone. This year I ran my first 5K and plan to run my first 10K in March. To further my knowledge in the fitness realm, I have begun reading Strong Women Stay Slim, New Rules for Lifting Abs, and The Body Sculpting Bible for Women. On my list to read next is Wheat Belly. I am always looking for new ways to further my education and knowledge to better serve the members that take my group fitness classes. Lately, I have started tinkering with recipes, buying healthy cookbooks, and finding easy, tasty, and healthy foods to make. Like I mentioned earlier, I am by no means an expert, but the things I share with you have helped me tremendously with my fitness journey. It is my hope that with these easy tips and recipes, that you too can make these tiny steps and see big positive changes in your life.
