Sometimes all you have is 10 minutes or 20 minutes! That’s life and we understand that. So we created this section for those crazy busy days when you can barely find time to breathe let alone exercise! Cleaning, kids, carpooling, cats, dogs, deadlines, dinner, and a dozen other things can crowd fitness out of our lives. So take a look at all these options that will make it easy for you to get Fit2B in 10 minutes, Fit2B in 15 minutes, Fit2B in 20, Fit2B in 25 and Fit2B in 30 minutes or more!
Remember: E is for Easy, M is for Moderate, C is for challenging, R is for Relaxing, and any of those may or may not be TS for TummySafe™ which indicates they are free of crunch-like motions, unmodified planks and sit ups.
Fit2B™ in 10 … These workouts are 10 minutes long or less!
All Abs II *M - This makes a great cool-down to tack onto the end of other workouts because it has a mini-relaxation time at the end. This workout is NOT for the faint of stomach (aka: those who cannot keep their navel to their spine the whole time they’re doing it)
Ankles & Upper Body *E/TS - This might sound like an odd combination, but adding some bicep curls to some calf work is a perfect way to “FIT” a lot into a short period of time!
Baby Balance *K - Turn balancing and core work into a game with your busy little ones. Littles of all ages can join the fun of learning how to balance in different ways! This short workout teaches healthy competition, bone density building tips, and lots of laughter. Watch for Watson!
Basic Aerobics *E/TS – We took this basic aerobic workout outside, and we love the results! If you’ve never done basic aerobics before, have no fear. Bethany keeps the queues simple and non-fancy. This short routine is filled with gentle upper and lower body movements that flow together for a great beginner workout or an excellent warm-up as you prepare for harder exercises. In fact, this is the warm-up that Bethany usually uses when teaching brick-and-mortar step classes.
NEW! Basic Transverse & Mula Bandha *E/TS – When it’s hard to “find the flex” happening in your deep core and pelvic floor, it’s time to take a couple steps back and simplify. This touching and thoughtful routine is for those who need to start in a chair, and it only includes three basic moves designed to exercise your deepest trunk muscles.
Bedtime Meditation *R - Perfect for bedtime or a mid-day quiet time, Bethany will help you find a comfortable position while she uses beautiful mental imagery to calm and relax your body, mind and spirit. Think of this as a mental workout, rather than a physical one. And remember that keeping your mind in shape is a major component of total wellness.
Boaters Blend *M - If you like to paddle a canoe, kayak, dragon boat, outrigger or you just want a firmer gut, then this workout is all yours!
Chair Pilates *E/TS - Sit on the edge of your bed, an exercise ball or a chair while getting an arm and ab workout! This workout is tummy safe and perfect if you only feel like working your upper body with some basic Pilates moves, you can do that while sitting down.
Core Wake Up *E/TS – Filmed as part of our office workout series, this is a simple 5 minute routine that will turn on your core. Use it in the mornings to start your day or whenever you feel “slouchy.”
Face & Neck Yoga *E/TS - It’s easy to focus on the BIG muscles of the arms, legs and core. But what about the ones in your face and neck? We tend to spend a lot of time staring and squinting, turning to look over one shoulder but not the other, resting our jaw on one hand, etc. All of those habits can facilitate imbalances and weakness in our facial muscles and cervical vertebrae. You can thank a member for requesting this short facial toner that will make a big difference!
Kelly Dean’s Wall Workout *TS - Kelly Dean from The Tummy Team makes a guest instructor appearance in this quick, total body workout that offers some excellent ways for men and women dealing with diastasis to further strengthen their core.
Kids & Crackups *K - Let your kids bounce along with ours as we go through an unhurried exploration of the amazing things that our bodies are capable of. Structure? Who needs it? Kids just need to move and groove and have a great time doing it!
Mommy & Me *K - Have a baby who wants to come along for the ride? Introduce him/her to movement with mummy just a few minutes at a time. This shorty session makes a great warm-up for mom or dad. A baby carrier such as an Ergo or Snugli is needed.
Mula Bandha *E/TS - Strengthens the deepest core muscles and pelvic floor from a sitting or standing position. A healthy core is directly related to a healthy pelvic floor. Working these areas in concert can diminish stress incontinence, lower back pain, bowel issues, and sexual disfunction. Family-friendly terminology is used so that “little ears” won’t be aware.
Office Workouts *E/M/TS – We have a page of short, simple routines filmed in an office setting as part of our Corporate Wellness Center. For info on how to have that platform incorporated in your company’s intranet, please contact Chris at email@example.com
Standing Chair Yoga *E/TS - If you are new to yoga, and you like to be able to hang onto something while you are learning the movements, then participate in this super-safe workout to improve your balance and coordination. Feel free to keep your jeans on; Bethany does!
Teen Yoga *M – What happens when four siblings want to help us film a workout “for kids our age, not babies!” A lot of laughter and goofing off and a little fitness, that’s what you get! But we’re okay with that because we want any exposure that kids get to fitness to be fun, so that when they become adults, they remember how accessible that fitness experience was!
Yoga 4 Runners *M - If you like to run or jog, but you get tight and tired too quickly, try this routine as your warm-up or cool-down. It’s a great stretching regimen for any type of exerciser, but Bethany’s queues are directed to athletic runners who want to care for their knees or hips.
Wiggly Warriors *K- Introduce your kids to the most basic warrior poses plus a few extras! It’s not about perfection; it’s about happiness and healthiness. This kids workout will inspire boys and girls alike to see fitness as fun and fulfilling!
Fit2B™ in 15 … These Workouts are 15 minutes long or less!
All Abs I *M - A pure core-crazy routine that focuses on your six-pack and obliques! You’ll feel some of the belly-burn today, but you’ll feel it even more tomorrow! This workout is not for those with diastasis.
NEW! Align It Flat *E/TS – What does the position of your ribs have to do with how far our your belly protrudes? How does the way you sit keep your core healthy or make you look flabby? Find out in this 13-minute routine that will leave you pondering your alignment for the rest of your life!
Backside Burner *M - Not for the faint of fanny! You’ll have glutes of steel if you do this workout on a regular basis. It’s short, but you’ll get your booty burn on! Not for those with diastasis.
Chair Blend *E/TS - Take your lower body out of the equation for a few minutes while you relax your upper body. This workout lets you isolate your core with purely upper body movements from both Pilates and Yoga. TS means it’s safe for those diastasis.
Chair Yoga *E/TS - Relax your upper body with gentle stretches and basic movements that focus on your arms and neck muscles, plus just a little core work. This simple but beautiful routine will show you how to do yoga without losing your balance as you utilize a chair to stabilize yourself through the whole workout.
Dumbbell Workout I *M – If you don’t have much time, but your arms feel flabby, this dumbbell workout that target-tones your arms: the biceps, triceps and shoulders is what you want. Using an exercise ball is part of the video, but you may use a chair for better balance or stand up to burn more calories.
Insane *C – Here is one of the most insane workouts we’ve ever filmed. Why is it insane? For starters, it’s super hard and the moves are just plain crazy! Even Bethany is out of breath in this one, but it’s totally safe as long as you have a baseline level of fitness agility and ability. We do NOT recommend this workout for those who have recently given birth, those who deal with chronic pain of any sort, or idiots who cannot follow safety queues.
Insane II *TS/C – This is the second round in our little mini-series, and you’ll see something cool in Bethany’s profile when you watch it and compare it with the first one.
Insane Upper Body *TS/C – It’s not really insane, it’s just more difficult than our more “sane” workouts. There’s no screaming, no slobbering, just more challenges and more big arm motions with weights. You’ll feel it!
Robot Yoga *E – This was one of the most FUN workouts we’ve ever filmed with the boys. And boy, do they act boyish. We ask them to make robot sound effects and they more than obliged us. Grab your little robots and get the giggles with us as we do some fun motions!
Simply Stretching *R - Peaceful exploration of your body along with gentle opening motions will calm and relax your frazzled nerves and muscles. Perfect by itself at the end of a long day, or lovely for use at the end of your own cardio session or other Fit2B Studio workout.
Totally Transverse *E/TS – Skip the crunches, and go deeper to the core muscle that forms your god-given girdle. If your “transverse abdominus” isn’t tight and toned, those love handles will get out of control! This quick workout is very mom-friendly, pregnant-friendly and great for those with disabilities because it can be done while standing or sitting. Try it for two weeks, and take before/after measurements just for fun
NEW – Totally Transverse II - *E/TS - For those who love to focus on their natural corset and are ready to get some variety while taking it a step further. Add in some more subtle moves that will fire up your insides while sculpting your outsides.
Warrior Workout I *E/TS - We have several warrior workouts, but this one was filmed specifically to be very tummy safe for those with diastasis. If you have never done the Warrior Series, or you just want to be sure you’re doing them correctly, this is a great place to start!
Fit2B™ in 20 … These workouts are 20 minutes long or less!
Remember: if it doesn’t say TS then it’s not TummySafe™
Ab Attack *C - Don’t just work your abdominal muscles, attack them! This intense workout is predominantly Pilates, and it will leave your tummy complaining in a good way. The use of a weighted ball is optional. Feel the burn, baby! Not for those with diastasis!
NEW! Baby Lift *M/TS – Babies make the most adorable hand weights, don’t you agree? Learn how to safely hold your little one, using him or her as a precious prop for your workout! Suitable for all infants who can hold their own head up, this routine will bond and strengthen both of you!
Balanced *M/TS – The job of your core isn’t to do 300 crunches a day. It’s to hold your balance, protect your spinal cord, guard your vital organs, etc. So this medium-level routine incorporates a lot of balancing moves with good alignment to help remind your core of it’s real career!
Gentle Yoga & Pilates Blend I *E - This is a very gentle workout that taps every muscle on the shoulder, encouraging an overall wakeup of tired muscles. Bethany moves slowly and carefully talks you through each movement. This is an easy, beginner workout, but it is not entirely tummy-safe, so read the video notes before beginning.
Jump Change *C/TS - The challenging transitions in this workout will put a jump in your step! It will be good for bone density and your heart rate! Jump your workout to the next level by adding a helpful hop here and there. *High Impact – not for those with joint issues
Maternity Mix I *E/TS - Experience gentle queues that will connect you to your changing body and the precious life within you. As a mother herself, Bethany has been through two healthy, fit pregnancies and births. She has a real heart for new moms and mommies-to-be, and you can see that shining through in this workout.
Maternity Mix II *M/TS - This is the sequel to Maternity Mix I and both workouts are perfect for the soon-t0-be mother. Safe for virtually any stage of pregnancy, you’ll be rocking your baby to sleep during these beautiful, safe and effective prenatal exercises.
Meditative Pilates & Yoga *R/E - This particular routine is full of contemplative imagery that acts as a spirtual supplement to the gentle Pilates & Yoga movements. You will get a quiet and peaceful, yet thorough total-body workout.
NEW! Mommy & Me III *M/TS - This standing fitness routine is safe and FUN for mom and baby. If you child fits in a carrier of any sort (wrap, pack, ergo-style, sling, etc) then this routine will be awesome for you. Leah’s little guy literally went to sleep while we did this workout! We keep the motions smaller and soothing, focusing on alignment and core integration.
Pilates in Pajamas II *M/TS - At first only available on our “Fit to Be You” DVD this workout is now available within several pathways here at Fit2B Studio. Bethany stays in her pretty PJ’s for this relaxing yet challenging home workout routine. It’s tummy safe and total body!

Weighted Warriors *C - The Yoga Warriors are powerful enough all by themselves, but what if you held hand-weights while flowing through these poses? Find out how to use weights in a safe but stimulating manner to greatly increase your warrior workout intensity!

Hold It! *M - How long can you hold a pose? This workout encourages you to hold each position for at least 10 deep breaths. Holding a muscle in place can be harder than moving it! This workout includes a nice warm-up and a bit of Tai Chi at the end.
Love Handles Lost *M/TS - Kiss your love-handles goodbye by performing this moderate intensity workout on a regular basis. Target the soft spots on your sides below your ribcage and above your hips (aka: obliques) while working some surrounding muscles as well!

Thigh Workout II *E/TS - This is the second one we filmed, but the quality and tummy-safe factor are way better! So even though this is #2 you should start with this one and then go to the first one… Because this one is safer for those with diastasis.
Fit2B™ in 30+ … Workouts are about 30 minutes long or MORE!!!
Backside Burner II *M/TS – Our members reported such fanny-firming results from the first rendition of this exercise set that we decided to turn it into a series. The moves are simple and straightforward, yet your backside will be on fire!
Functional Workout I *TS/C - Functional fitness workouts involve exercises that use every muscle in your body. Instead of isolating one muscle, each exercise wakes up a ton of muscles, and your cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems both receive amazing benefits. This workout is a re-film that is now TummySafe™
NEW! Gentle Blend *M/TS – Just because it’s gentle, that doesn’t mean you won’t feel it reshaping your whole body from the core outward. Deep spiritual imagery is used throughout this workout as you transition safely from standing to supine (on your back).
Peaceful Blend *M/TS/R - Our longest workout on the site, but you might not even realize that you are working out! The subtle transitions and deep core focus will sneak up on you, so that by the time you are relaxing and breathing deeply at the end, you will only feel… peaceful.
NEW! Rockin’ Yoga & Pilates *M/TS - Offering a quicker pace and some fun new ideas, Bethany even puts on a snazzy shirt for this one (just for fun) as she leads you in this moderately-intense routine. Crank up your own tunes and follow along!
Tabata *M/TS - Each movement is done for 8 sets of 20 seconds each with a 10 second rest between each set. However, unlike mainstream tabata classes that perform the exercises as fast as possible, Bethany pays careful attention to form and core positioning and keeps things at a safe pace.
Tabata Kick & Squat *M/TS – Our longest workout at 44 minutes in length, every muscle in your body will be singing for joy with this fun, elevating fitness routine that also teaches good alignment and core recruitment! Talk about a great standing ab workout!
Tabata Ball Workout *C – Tabata usually means fast, and many benefits are derived from moving fast HOWEVER we aren’t with you to check form and be sure you are moving safely. So we slow things down a bit. Have no fear, though, you’ll still get a great workout! (this one is up for refilming in 2012 due to sound issues)
Kelly Dean’s Total Body Toning *E/TS - We didn’t film this one; Kelly filmed it at her office. We love it, and she gave us permission to use it. We plan to refilm it in March, 2012. If you want a tremendous core workout, though, do this one today!
*E is for easy, M is for moderate, C is for challenging, R is for relaxing, TS is for tummy safe, K is for kids
