“Old School” Workouts

The FITgals LOVE to switch up the workout routine so if you have been devoted to one video or one class for a long time, it is time to switch it up.

There are SO many great, free exercise videos that we have highlighted for you on our blog from Fitness Blender (we still don’t know how they had the time to film all of that content) to our fav’s Anna Kaiser and Tracy Anderson, but it may be time for you to get your inspiration from an old school workout…

(If you thought we were going to link you to Jane Fonda, we ARE because WHATEVER she is doing is working…so click here.)

But we don’t have to go THAT far back to get a great workout. Jillian Michael’s 30-day shred really brings it back to the basics and you don’t need crazy dance moves or complex exercises to get a great workout. And, thanks to YouTube, you don’t need the DVD’s anymore either!

With the weather turning wet and cold, take the time in your own home and on your own time to check out Level 1 and Level 2 and let us know how it goes!


The In-Home Workout Mother-load!

DC gets hot and humid in July/August. So outside runs and even getting to the gym can feel like a lot of effort. We have shared many videos over the last two years to inspire you to work out inside, but Greatist has compiled….well the greatest list of FREE fitness videos online!

Whether you like to DANCE, focus on your LEGS, do YOGA, or just like to try new things all the time, check out these videos and start sweating!


And don’t trust us…check out just ONE of the videos they listed here and tell us that it doesn’t fall into the “I can’t believe this content is FREE” category…

No Excuses in 2015

It was cold. I didn’t have a ton of time for my workout and I didn’t want to think about my workout.

What’s a girl to do?

Turn to the internet!

We have highlighted many great online videos that are FREE, but these videos might be the best in terms of clarity and simplicity. Husband and wife fitness-pros have uploaded tons of wonderful workouts to their website Fitness Blender that can be done anywhere and use no to very little equipment. The videos also stream on Youtube, so those of you with apple TV’s – you have no excuse!

Crank up the music (the videos are a little dull…), check it out and let me know what you think!

Here is a favorite video of mine. (Warning: You will be SORE!!)
