Workout at Home on these Earlier Fall Evenings
  • November 6, 2014
  • As I get closer to my wedding (two days from now) I feel like all I’m doing is running from place to place. I’m always trying to pack as much into my day as I can, but when it comes to this wedding, there’s much much more to pack into a day.

    If you’re moving at full tilt too or you’re just having a I-can’t-go-to-that-class-it’s-dark kind of day, I get it. Sometimes a short and sweet workout is the best kind of workout for where you are in life.

    Pack one into your day using only your bodyweight. Hotel room? No problem. Living room floor? Great. Sometimes a workout at home is exactly what you need.

    Grab my playlist from this week to make this workout a serious party.


    Here’s your workout! If a minute feels like too much for you, cut each exercise down to :45.
