We suggest for different fitness levels:
B-fits (beginner peeps) – Follow modifications from video. Use bodyweight or light weight. Omit the jumping and just squat. And do regular side lunges with no jumping.
A-fits (advanced peeps) – Use moderately heavy weight. Go for speed and limit your breaks. Use a jump rope if you have one.
Diastasis recti tip – Go slow. Focus on your breathing! Keep belly button in towards spine when exhaling. Use a light weight.
A fast moving 18 minute cardio workout for busy ladies and moms
This workout is great for post partum moms like Lori. It will get that heart rate up and get the most out of your time since it combines cardio and strength.
Even though this workout is 18 minutes long it goes by super fast. Perfect cardio session to squeeze into your busy schedule.
Affirmation for today’s workout – I am grateful for my body.
Repeat this 3 times before you workout.
We all can get wrapped up in our lives. The to-do list. The stresses, etc. and forget to think how grateful we should be for our bodies. As a society we tend to put a lot of unnecessary stress upon ourselves. We can get so caught up in helping others or doing things in our careers that we neglect our own bodies.
How often do you say to yourself that you are grateful for your body?
Probably not as often as you should. It’s amazing what we put our bodies through and it still loves us? So remember be kind to your body. And tell it how grateful you are for it everyday.
Review of Fabletics workout clothes
We want to thank you Fabletics for sending these cute workout clothes to review!! We were so excited to get the email and the opportunity. We were not paid for this, our opinions are our own.
For those that are not familiar with Fabletics, it is a workout clothing line created by Kate Hudson (we love her!). It’s a monthly membership subscription so you never run out of cute workout clothes.
Lori used to be have a membership with JustFab group (which Fabletics is a branch of) but she felt she wasn’t using it as much so she stopped. But then we heard about Fabletics and are thinking the monthly membership might be good for us being fitness trainers. One thing we like is you can skip months if you don’t feel like spending money on workout clothes that month. Which is great for us, we love flexibility.
We love adding more stylish outfits to pick from for our workouts.
Love the mesh top and the bright colored band on these pants.
We love the way the clothes feel on our skin! We wear a lot of bamboo clothes and are excited to have other options that feel great on the skin. This was our first time trying out Fabletics and we were very impressed. The quality is great so far, as we have only worn the outfits once.
We are all about cute and comfortable when it comes to workout gear and Fabletics meets these requirements.
Lori loved her outfit, but Michelle was not so in love with her outfit. The top was falling off her so it made it very hard to workout in. It’s a great top to wear around just not a workout shirt in our opinion. And we are not sure where we stand on gray pants as we find them tough to look good in and you can see sweat sometimes. Both set of pants fit our bodies which is hard being short girls with bigger bottoms.
Overall, we are impressed with Fabletics. They have a decent selection of clothing. We are excited to try more outfits out in the future. So if you are a fitness lover like us and like to buy cute clothes make sure you check out Fabletics. If you want to try them out with us we would love for you to use our referral link as we get store credit for each person that joins.
