Circuit Workout – C/TS

One of my favorite ways to get a quick, challenging workout – that’s also easily scalable if I’m low on energy – is to set up a home circuit. I put various props around my house and go through them two times, doing anywhere from 5 – 20 reps of each activity. This workout will […]

C/TS – Weightlifting 301

Weightlifting 301 - Workout with dumbbells, kettlebells and stretching with Fit2b.com

This workout builds on Weightlifting 101 and 201, but there is so much more I could (and will) spin off of this strenuous series. The human body can move in thousands of ways, and this challenging workout packed with tummysafe strategies will get your heartrate up as you explore several creative motions while carrying load. […]

Weightlifting 201 – C/TS

TummySafe Weightlifting 201 Workout - fit2b.com

If this workout doesn’t turn your muscles to mush {in a good way} then you’re ready for heavier weights, because, as I say many times throughout the routine itself, “Oh. My. Goodness.” I practiced and practiced this workout to prepare to not be so sweaty and out of breath while filming, but nope! This pattern […]

C/TS – Classic Flow B

Yoga Classic Flow B - Fit2b.com

Many mainstream Yoga studio classes will begin with 3-5 rounds of Surya Namaskara A followed by B. It’s meant to be a rigorous warm up, and few form cues are given as it’s understood (or assumed) that everyone in the room can execute the proper technique and breathing. However, many people haven’t been taught. They […]

C/TS – Fusion Mix II

Fusion Mix 2 - challenging workouts on Fit2b.com

The second installment of a 3-part series, this challenging workout is a blend of advanced movements pulled from Yoga, Pilates and natural body resistance methodologies. It’s long and strenuous, requiring a solid baseline of deep core strength as we’ll be doing full planks (which are fine once your diastasis has narrowed and regained fascial tension + […]

C/TS – Fusion Mix 1

Fusion Mix Workout - Fit2b.com

This is the first of a 3-part series of playful yet intense total body strengthening moves that combine elements from Pilates, Yoga, and natural transitional movements like tripods, single-leg squats, arm balances, and even planks done safely! While this routine has zero crunches or sit-ups, it’s not for someone whose abdominal fascia is still thinned out with a wide […]

C/TS – Get On The {Big} Ball

Get on the {Big} ball routine - fit2b.com

“Are those big exercise balls safe?” I get asked that question all the time, and the answer is that it depends what you do on them. This routine explores a huge variety of motions – everything from easy to hard stuff like mountain climbers and pikes – with my classic “tummysafe” cueing. IMPORTANT NOTE: Some […]

C/TS – Step & Pivot Around The World

Step & Pivot Around The World routine from fit2b.com

Okay, I admit that title is long and cheesy, but it summarizes the choreography theme in the patterns you’ll be doing with me in this fun routine. You’re going to be all over your bench on every side, pivoting all over. As always, I’ve got your back with modifications if you’re not ready for jumping […]

C/TS – Bag a Better Booty

Bag A Better Booty - fit2b.com

Thanks to all your positive feedback on the Bag A Better Back routine, we are excited to debut this, and we have plans for “Bag a Better Bust” as well 😉 And in case you’re wondering if it’s awkward to control a swinging grocery bag as the training tool for a toned tushie, yes! But wow! […]
