Workout at Home – Awesome 30 minute workout routine!

I don’t know about you, but sometimes the hardest thing about a workout is finding the time to do it. Beyond finding the time to workout there is also the added travel time of getting to the gym and then once you are there how often do you have to wait for a machine, or simply don’t know good exercises to do? I have nothing against gyms, I just haven’t been to one in about 4 years. We will supplement our home workouts with fun classes like yoga, TRX, spinning, workouts at the park etc. It is always fun to change things up and interact in a class environment to get you pumped up.

Typically I workout in my living room either with a made up workout or by watching a YouTube free fitness video. Today I didn’t feel like following a video so I made up my own routine and by the end of it I had worked up quite the sweat. Just remember to go as hard as you personally can. Compete with yourself to become the best you that you can. Here was my routine from today. Have fun! Challenge yourself and let me know what you think!
