Work Out of the Day!

Here is a super quick workout that shouldn't take more than 10 minutes, but will get your heart rate up!

My brother (14yrs) and i just tried this, and were both tired...clearly out of shape!

**Do each exercise for 20 seconds, rest for 10, then repeat for a total of 4 rounds. Do the same exercise 4 times, then move on to the next.

*Make sure to count, and try and do the same amount each time...

1. Squats

2. Burpees

3. Mountain Cimbers-Switch back and forth quickly

4. Push Ups
Full--modified---or wall!

okay. now go do it! 4 moves. 4 times each. 20 seconds on. 10 off.

Gear Up For the Holidays!

Don't let the holidays set you back! So Remember...

1. Stay active...add in an extra day of activity

2. You're in control...watch your portion sizes! Don't eat till you can't breath!
                Use your hand to estimate portion sizes:
                1 fist = 1 cup
                The palm of your hand = 3 oz. of meat
                Tip of your Thumb = 1 TBSP
                Tip of your Index Finger = 1 TSP

3. PLAN ahead...if you are loading up for dinner, eat light and healthy earlier!

4. Hit up the Veggie and Fruit Platter! Get lots of Color on your Plate!!

5. Lastly, RELAX and ENJOY :) yourself!!
