"3 Day Beginner Workout #1"

This beginner workout is a fabulous starting point! Get ready to tackle both cardio and strength training workouts on the same days! You'll hit all of your major muscle groups in 3 days putting you closer to your ideal body.

Keep your eye on the prize as you workout your way through the week!

Mondays are a great place to start your workouts for the week.Let's work out Monday, Wednesday, Friday this week.

Let's get down to business.

Each workout day, schedule a 30 minute walk for yourself with an additional 30 minutes of strength training.

"Cardio Workout
Your 30 Minute Walk"

Begin by warming up for 5 minutes and then pump it up to your target heart rate zone for 20 minutes. End with 5 minutes of cool down.

Each time you complete a workout, give yourself a pat on the back and write it in your workout log!

You're on your way to that ideal body! Stick with this fitness routine for 4 weeks and then choose another.

"Challenge Is Key"

Keep this workout routine real by challenging yourself through each exercise. If the weights get easy all the way to 15 reps, then increase your weights so the last few repetitions are difficult.

Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday are "days off".

On the days there are no scheduled workouts, see if you can fit in something active you enjoy. You might be surprised as your motivation and energy levels rise.

Here's to your success!
