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 […]

M/TS – Water Aerobics

Cardio Water Aerobics Workout - fit2b.com

I taught “aquarobics” for several years, including my pregnancy and recovery with my son. I’d set him in his carseat on the pool deck, and the class participants would coo and croon to him whenever they went by. It was so fun to teach, but I admit I was a bit stumped to get repeated […]

Weightlifting 201 – C/TS

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 […]

M/TS – 21 Tone Up

This routine was designed on a quiet day in our tiny off-grid shabby cabin in Montana, dubbed “The Shabin.” There isn’t much room in it, and it was raining outside. I needed to move or go crazy! So I just stood up and started playing with basic leg and arm combinations. It was easy to come […]
