Getting to the gym on a regular, consistent schedule has never been easy for me. Sometimes I can do it for a few weeks or months at a time, but inevitably life butts in and schedules get changed. In order to not completely lose momentum and/or get discouraged, I try to incorporate mini workouts into my day when I can even if it’s just 5-10 mins of push-ups and lunges.
Another fitness tool I like to have is a workout DVD (or streaming video) that doesn’t require too much as far as space or gear. I particularly love the Tracy Anderson Method Mat Workout DVD when I want to squeeze in a quick workout and want to focus on toning. To be honest, I haven’t even mastered this workout to be able to do it from start to finish (my fitness level is not very high but I’m working on it!). Often, I’ll just do sections of it depending on time, and I still see results!!
The best feature of this workout video, I think, is the arm sequence. It’s hard and unlike any I’ve done before, but I’ve found it to be the most effective to tone my arms.
With summer upon us and the inevitable progression to more revealing clothing as the warmer weather hits, I think I’ll be adding this one to my schedule a little more often. 🙂
