Another New Workout!

Transverse Training has joined the Fit2B library of foundational basics. I’m so excited about how it will help you connect this core muscle to simple, everyday motions and advance you faster into fitness. This month, we are updating the “Foundational Five” videos that new members are encouraged to do when they first join Fit2B. Don’t worry, if you’re a long time member and love “The Original ‘OG’ F5” they’re still linked here.

Transverse Training - 13:01
Adding small, easy motions to the most basic core work in a seated position should be simple, right? What if it's not easy because your abs need a minute? Don't we all when we first wake up? Your core is waking up again, and this routine will help your core recalibrate during some seated and standing motions that will enable you to quickly make progress. - fit2b.com

Testimony of the week:

Warning!! Do not I repeat Do not underestimate the effectiveness of Black Battlesticks. My legs and butt are sore today! Okay, carry on…
-Charline L.

FREE Shortie: Mexico flow

Filmed on the beaches of Ensenada, MX this Cardio Yoga blend routine is usually only available as part of our Exercise Around the World online course which benefits a special needs orphanage in that area. Unlike our other workouts, my voice is dubbed over the movements I am doing in ocean since I couldn’t use a mic. This routine is rated “M” for being moderately challenging, and “TS” for offering tummysafe/smart cues. By clicking play on this or any video on this website, you signify that you have read and agreed to our terms here.

Exercise Q & A with Beth

Question from Karlee: I assume most of the F5 routines would be beneficial for hiatal hernia. But are there any routines that may be especially helpful in strengthening that area to prevent the hernia from happening again?

Answer from Beth:  Yes and yes, the same ones and all of the Fit2B routines, really. It’s the breath work and the pressure control that we teach that strengthens that area and gives you the ability to manage where your pressure is going inside your body. Start with all the NEW routines in the Foundational Five. They will be super helpful. If you feel your HH bothering you, try again, and think “lighter not tighter.”

-Kelly G.

—Casey C.

“I was leaning toward aerobics 2 which isn’t easy for me at this point, per se, but is in my comfort zone. My younger kids (7 and 4) pushed me to the color series and then to Blue Belt. honestly, I was reluctant. I LOVED it! They did it with me, which was a bonus.”

“I’m 6 weeks postpartum and my midwife actually checked for diastasis at my appointment! Just wanted to share because my mom went through 9 pregnancies before even learning about it, so I was excited that my midwife knew about it. She checked it by my belly button and said it was about a 1(finger width). I did fit2b throughout my pregnancy and I’m excited to keep going!” –Elizabeth B.

Weightlifting 301 😲 I wasn’t sure I’d finish. I gave myself permission not to. I skipped the last half of the plank-fly combo because my legs wouldn’t properly hold my weight. I kind of wanted to see how it ended so I pushed forward, doing fewer reps or even skipping sets if needed. I got to the end. Everything that can shake is and I’m a hot, sweaty mess. Not sure when/if I’ll come back to it, but at least I know. I CAN.”  –Bethany V.

“I’m feeling pretty darn proud of myself. I’ve done a routine every day for the past 3 days during my kids nap time which is the most consistently I have ever done anything fitness related! Kept it easy today with a stretching routine but on previous days I did the walking routine as well as Basic Aerobics. I like the way that amount of exercise makes me feel.” -Courtney C.

“The variety alone is reason to join! There are workouts that are gentle and slow for tired or rough days, there are workouts that are the complete opposite that will get you sweating and working! The creativity of the workouts… you’d never be bored!” – Ericka I.

“I’m so thankful to have found tummy safe fitness! I love the encouragement in all of the videos. I’ve been a member for about 4 years and it has been such a blessing! I love the educational component, too. I’ve learned new things about myself and my body along the way.” -Brenda L.

“Saw my PT today and she was so impressed by my ability to engage my PF and TA. There were little tweaks I had to do, but she said we covered 3+ appointments worth of exercises. Thank you Beth – it was all because of Fit2B, and I told her that!” -Sara S.

“Rough day. woke up tired/drained. 1st forced workout of the day was cleaning up mounds of dog vomit that I was greeted with. Last-also forced workout was helping my husband break away ice off our roof at 9 pm because it was causing leaks in the house. Chosen workout was ‘Neck Routine‘ because i needed to get some of my tension out and relieve my headache. Grateful for it the routine!”

 —Stephanie C.

I always do a big/heavy weight routine on Monday afternoons, after school with my kids. I have upped my weights in the last little while, and I am feeling so proud to be able to do that! It feels SO good to be getting stronger, and to be feeling better. Couldn’t do it without Fit2b!!!!”

 —Nicole K.

“Tried 21 Tone Up for the first time today; gotta be honest it kinda kicked my booty! But, as usual, Beth made it doable with all of her tips and suggested modifications; I listened to my body and did my best. There was such a great quote in there, too! Something like you have to choose to focus on the right thing. So good. Definitely going to come back to this one.”

—Valerie W.

“I had a four finger gap from the birth of my twins. It’s kind of hard to tell but seems to be at a two now. (Was at a four right before I started fit2B) So happy I found fit2B. I actually like working out now and am feeling so much healthier and stronger.”

“Oh this is yummy movement! As soon as Kelly said, “pelvic diaphram” it made sense and the visualization of the two diaphrams working parallel. I only did the first step today. I have been feeling weaker as I’ve neglected some of my exercises. I’m looking forward to coming back and doing it again” -Lindsay H.

I feel so empowered! I was so nervous about doing a workout because my hernia has been super sensitive today . But I had planned to do Fuschia Fascia, so I just promised myself I would stop if it was bothering me – it felt so amazing that I did the contralaterals too. 🙌 For the first time in years (decades?) I’m starting to get that exercise endorphin rush.”

 —S. Santos

“Just have to give a shoutout for the wood floor workout – I’m not sure if I have ever seen it mentioned, which made finding it a hidden gem! There was so much more variety than I expected and it was a lot of work and so much fun! Definitely would recommend if you have wood floors!” -Melissa B.
