Fit2B™ Beginning Workout Path

Anyone is “Fit to Be” beginning this workout path!

If you’re just starting to prioritize your fitness, this clearly outlined path that we update regularly (last – 9/16) is ideal after you’ve completed our “Foundational Five” or “F5” routines found here. This pathway is suitable for all ability levels, gradually increasing time, workload and coordination in a gentle yet empowering way. Look at the blue buttons below like stepping stones on a well-traveled pathway.

   Review the Foundational Five “F5” Here 

All of the workouts in this pathway are TummySafe™ for those with diastasis recti. The goal for each week is to complete the exercise routines provided. The routines are meant to be spread out during your week. You’re not expected to do all the routines in one day, but some members do. Some repeat weeks over and over again if they don’t feel ready to move forward. Some like to do all the routines in one day.  Everyone is different. Tune into YOUR body’s needs. Please post questions in our forum.

Week One: Do 5 short workouts + Stretch!

Each week adds a bit more time and intensity. Repeat a week or a workout if you don’t feel ready to move on. There is no rush. This is about taking care of yourself.

  Choose a routine from “Sit & Get Fit” 

  Ankles & Upper body – 10:49

Week Two: Do 4 longer workouts + Stretch!

These gentle routines should feel simple and straightforward. Do less or more as you feel able. Just one a day is fine. If one doesn’t feel like the right fit for that day, pick a different one. The order is up to you!

Week 3: Do 4 longer routines + Stretch

If you miss a day, you’re not allowed to beat yourself up or give up! You also aren’t allowed to pile extra on yourself in an attempt to “make up” the work because your body will respond negatively to that, and so will your mind. Just do the next thing tomorrow! No worries! It’s just a workout!

Week 4 Goal: Complete these 3 routines + The Daily Double

“Daily Doubles” are sports practices that occur at two different times per day. We utilize this principle in the Fit2B Advancing Path, so we’re introducing it here to prepare you at a lighter level. Do one routine each day for 3 days {not necessarily in the row} then do the daily double for a 4th day.
