Hi Everyone!

This workout is focused on the core. It should have you working up a sweat, and working the core from every angle. I enjoyed this workout, it was quick, but challenging. 

My cat, Gambit, made a guest appearance. He loves when we work out. I had Jesse doing some foam rolling and as you can see in the picture below Gambit made himself comfortable. :) 

I hope that you enjoy the workout!


  1. Hi Melissa, I know that you have heard this at about a thousand times before, but I still want to say that I think that it is amazing what you are doing. One of the things I most like about your workouts is that you can do them all at home! Also seeing you always so happy, inspiring and full of positive energy is really great!
    I have been doing you exercises (and loving them!) along with my normal exercises. You give many good tips for different level of exercises (for example for those who have troubles with wrists etc)... Do you also have some good alternative for those who have problems with their knees (or other joints in legs) but would still like to keep fit?
    I would also like to say that you cat is SO CUTE!!!
