30 Day Challenge: Day 1-Full Body

Hi Everyone!

Welcome to Day 1 of the New 30 Day Challenge! I loved the last 30 Day Challenge so much that I had to do another one. 

Workout Number 1 is a full body workout that incorporates plenty of cardio. One round takes 20 minutes. The exercises in this routine combine body shaping movements, with fat burning cardio. 

Remember to always work to your own level. If you can't complete the entire 50 second interval (yet!) you can work your way up to it. Do as much as you can, rest, and then keep going. If the workout is challenging you it is working. Learning how far you can push yourself, and how to listen to your body is an important part of working out. With practice you will grow stronger and more fit. You may even be surprised by how quickly it happens! The more you put into the workout, the more you will get out of it. 

I will also be posting nutrition tips throughout the month. You can find the first tip here: 5 Rules to Improve Your Nutrition and Diet. Nutrition is a key step to achieving your personal best in health and fitness. If you want to track your results I recommend taking photos and/or measurements. I am always thrilled to see the changes people are able to achieve. 

Don't forget to Check In after you complete the workout. The daily check-ins are a great way to stay motivated and accountable for your workout. You can check in on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter


Have fun! 
Melissa

  4. Wonderful! I am 6 months pregnant so I made a few adjustments but it felt great. Thanks so much for the motivation! I hope to do a bikini competition a year after my baby is born but I have a long way to go. I feel like it's possible now that I found your blog... :)
