One of my favorite things to do in the new year is to shake up my fitness routine. I have been going to the same gym for over seventeen years, so I am starting to feel like it is time to try something new in order to help motivate myself in my fitness routine. Fitness studios which specialize in full-body workouts are the current trend; and are proving to be more affordable and flexible, not to mention effective, than traditional full-service gyms. There are so many different ones to try! While many promise a full-body workout, most are only effective with cardio workouts, or core fitness; not a combination. I want something that does everything; after all, I am a busy mother of three! One of my friends is a fitness expert, and she is opening a hot new fitness studio in Santa Clara; I cannot wait to give it a try!

Complete workout in Santa Clara in 30 minutes

9Round Santa Clara is a fabulous fitness concept which combines strength training, kickboxing, and abs/core work. These are the three major things we can use in our fitness routines in order to receive maximum results from our workouts. In addition to a complete workout in one session, a single session is only 30 minutes! That is so amazing for those of us with a tight schedule; but wait, that’s not all! There is no scheduled time for the workout. So, you don’t have to worry about a meeting at work going late, or getting stuck in traffic; you won’t miss your workout. You can pop in anytime during business hours and start your workout! Love that!

The workouts are different every time you go, and there is always a trainer there to help you with your form and keep you motivated during your workout-so you can’t cheat! haha Members of 9Round Santa Clara will also get a member portal, PULSE Rate Technology, goal setting, gloves and wraps, and personal attention. Love!

Summer 2018 fitness routine

addidas IT shoes

Summer starts tomorrow! So I am switching up my fitness routine for the summer season. What I love about the summer season is that I have more free time to get in really good workouts. It is also a time when I can include my kids in my fitness routine. Love that!

My goal this summer is to work off ten pounds. I hope to lose a pound a week; I know I can do it! I use MyFitnessPal to track my workouts and caloric intake. Everytime I use it, it works like a charm! It’s an easy numbers game; stick to the calorie count, workout, and voila! A pound a week will vanish. Love it!

Here is my summer fitness routine:

Monday: Cardio and weights, 60 minutes (interval and strength)

Tuesday: Spin class with my daughters (cardio)

Wednesday: BodyCombat class (cardio)

Thursday: The Drop (interval and strength class)

Friday: Spin class with my daughters (cardio)

Saturday: Family hike or swimming laps with the kids (easy cardio)

Sunday: rest day

It is important to mix up cardio, interval training, and strength training. By mixing together different workout types, it works differing muscles groups, enabling a good overall workout routine.

I’m excited about my summer fitness routine because I have the time to mix together the right types of workouts into my schedule.

What are you doing this summer for fitness? Which workouts are your favorite?

Thanks for stopping by!

Spring 2018 fitness routine

Spring is here! Now that the spring season has officially begun, it is time for a new fitness routine.

Although our weather here in the San Francisco Bay Area is still wintry, I am going to try and push through my spring fitness routine, and get outside more!

One of my goals for 2018 was to get outside more, so I am trying to integrate more outside fitness into my spring routine. Since this is our rainy season, I need to ensure I have an indoor back-up plan in place in case of inclement weather on an outdoor fitness day.

Monday: Outdoor hike for 30 minutes plus 15 minute stretch routine

Tuesday: Spin class

Wednesday: Swimming workout-about 4000 yards.

Thursday: 30 minute interval workout at home, alternating cardio drills, core work and strength drills. (my schedule on Thursdays is crazy busy-so I need to squeeze something in at home)

Friday: BodyCombat

Saturday: Family Hike outside for 60 minutes

Sunday: Rest day.

The problem with my fitness routine, is that I need to add weights! So, as of right now, my indoor alternate workout for rainy days involves a one hour treadmill LifeFitness Course, and about a half hour of weights. This will help me integrate weights into my routine; unless we don’t get our weekly rainy days-then I need to re-evaluate this routine! Haha

As you know, in a typical fitness routine, there should be a good combination of cardio, interval, anaerobic cardio, core work, strength work (using body weight), and weights. This fitness routine addresses all of those components except for the weights; which I am hoping will naturally fall into my routine on rainy days.

What is your typical fitness routine during the spring season? If you like to workout outside, how do you incorporate weights into your weekly routine?

Thanks for stopping by!
