While I actually HATE politics, I do LOVE my country! Election Day always gives me a natural feeling of US pride, gratefulness for my rights and appreciation of our history. Here’s the workout I did this morning to build on the natural energy that permeates our nation on this awesome day. Whether you’re a Democrat, Republican, Independent, etc. we are all HUMAN and our HEALTH is a universal need. So while you’re getting excited (or jaded) by this year’s election, do your body and mind some good by knocking out my 30 min “Election Energizer” workout. Go hard, get a good sweat and Viva USA!
P.S. Much love to all of my international followers as well 😉
Equipment: NONE, open area needed to jump around, piece of tape on the floor (or an imaginary line)
Calories Burned: 300 – 400

The good Lord didn’t see it fit to bless Brit with a booty…but it’s all good!
So yesterday I was chatting with one of my male buddies who asked, “Brit, why are you making booty BURN workouts? I think you should make booty BUILD workouts. Honestly, I appreciate a sizable behind!”
This got me thinking, we all have different “ideal” body preferences, which is a good thing. After all, variety is the spice of life! If you are like me and not naturally blessed with a “bangin’ booty” here is a workout that can help us get some nice firm, junk in our trunks. We’ll also build lower body strength and burn a lot of calories in the process – enjoy 🙂
Workout name: Brit’s Booty Builder
Duration: 30 minutes
Focus: Gluteus maximus, hamstrings
Calories burned: 200-250
Equipment needed: 2 heavy dumbbells/hand weights
Instructions: I’ve included some vidoes below to demo the exercises that may be confusing
Hey Gang! As usual, I hope this message finds you joyous and well. Here is the workout I did this morning before work. It was efficient and effective. Try it for yourself and let me know how it goes. Have a WONDERFUL WEDNESDAY and CHOOSE to have a great day.
This week I’ve been really surprised by how “in shape” I am despite recently returning from my European Extravaganza. I was expecting to be sucking air when teaching my Turbo Kick classes yesterday, but surprisingly I’m feeling good – really good. I’ll attribute my fitness maintenance to my little workout formula I did in my hotel gyms while traveling. Fortunately, most of the hotels we stayed in had a bike, a treadmill and a set of free hand weights. So when I had the opportunity, I got a high-intensity, 30-40 minute circuit in which served me well. The workout was extremely effective for me, so here’s a copy for you to keep.
Also, here are some more pictures from the Italy section of my trip. We spent 2 days in Cinque Terre – a quaint set of 5 villages along the northern Italian coast. One day, we hiked from village to village for a total of 8.5 miles on really steep terrains. I even got a few push-ups in along the way – yeah buddy #GRIT. This was definitely the most “fit” segment of my trip (unlike the latter portion in Milan and Rome during which I indulged in gelato, pasta and wine every day – more to come on that later). Enjoy 🙂
