Tip #1: Focus on what you can do right now & forget the rest!

It’s easy to get caught up in all the things we can’t do or feel like we aren’t committing enough time to working out. Calm the noise of those negative thoughts and focus on what you can do right now to be healthier tomorrow. HAVE FAITH in your journey! Know that we don’t have to commit 3 hours every time we workout to see the results we want. Exercise, no matter how short, is still beneficial! The key is to do more of the things we enjoy, get better direction and utilize the most out of the time we are given by doing exercises that WORK!

Try this body weight exercise circuit at the office or on your lunch break to help improve your focus and energy for the rest of the day!

  1. Wall sit: 1 minute
  2. Low Plank hold with added step out: 20 total
  3. Glute Bridges: 20 total (on last rep hold at top for 30 seconds)

Repeat for 3 to 4 sets.


DID YOU KNOW: Glute bridges are better for building a better booty then squats alone.
