5 FIERCE Thigh Workouts – Get Trim, Toned Thighs!

Hola friends!  How’s it going?  My Thursday is off to a good start.  I just finished teaching my back-to-back cycling classes at BEYOND Pedaling.  I have to teach one more class this evening, but until then I’m blogging and working at my fitness studio.

In honor of  “Throwback Thursday” I decided to share 5 of my favorite thigh workouts from the blog.  I designed these exercise routines over past 3 years and they each take a different approach to toning and strengthening the thighs.  Some use hand weights, some are body-weight only and others incorporate more endurance training.  Whatever your preference, I’ve got something for you.  But one thing is for sure, each workout is gritty and will give your thighs a good burn!

Each workout has instructions and photos to guide you through the moves.  If you have any questions, just post a comment below or shoot me an email to brit@gritbybrit.com.

Enjoy!  xoxo, Brit

Hey gang – here’s your workout of the day.  I’ve been feeling full of energy all week, so I wanted to create a workout that let’s me jump around!  This a great power workout to tag on to resistance training. If you have a knee issues, this probably isn’t the best workout for you 🙁  However, you can modify the moves my elevating on to your tip toes instead of jumping.  Give it a whirl and let me know who it goes.   xoxo, Brit

Hey gang!  I’m starting a new series on GRIT by Brit to get you right and tight for the summer #OperationBeachBody!  Every few days I’ll feature a specially designed workout specifically made to get you ready for the beach!

Our first #OperationBeachBody workout comes from my friend, Lavon Washington!  Like me, Lavon (pictured below) is native Texan who recently moved to New York City.  His passion for fitness and wellness started by playing sports when he was really young and continued as a he was college football player.  Now, Lavon competes in body building competitions and does a little fitness modeling as a side hustle to his full time Mergers & Acquisitions career.  Above is the fierce leg workout that he did earlier this week and was kind enough to share with us.  Try it for yourself to get ready for short shorts this summer!
