We had some crazy cold weather in Dallas this weekend – an ice storm to be exact. Consequently, many of my favorite group fitness classes were cancelled, which kind of put me in a funk. A big part of me wanted to just skip my workouts all together and curl up on my couch. Fortunately, while doing some internet browsing I came across this article, 10 Questions to Ask Yourself before You Skip Your Workout, and it became very clear to me that I needed to get my butt off of the couch and into my workout clothes. While there’s nothing wrong with resting (our bodies do need adequate recovery), I’m really glad I went ahead and got some alternative activity in. My workout schedule this weekend went like this:
- Thursday = Run up and down the stairs in my house for 10 min + 50 push ups + my 10 Min Abs vol. 1
- Friday = TaeBo 60 min fat blaster DVD + dancing around in my living room with ankle weights on to some of my favorite jamz
- Saturday = Turbo Kick + Body Pump (my gym opened for a few hours – yay!)
- Sunday = Hot Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Now that I’m getting ready to embark on my work week, I’m feeling energized and happy that I didn’t skip my sweat sessions. In fact, I think changing up my routine actually benefited my body – I’m pretty sore in areas that I don’t typically focus on.
For the Dallas readers who are still going to be stuck at home tomorrow, here’s a 15 minute workout video created by yours truly that will get you sweating 🙂 You can knock this bad boy out in your home with no equipment. The routine is designed to get your heart rate up, work all of the major muscle groups and burn 150-200 calories.
Enjoy the workout, be encouraged and have a wonderful week! xoxo, Brit
Hey Gang! We have officially reached the half way point of Summer (tear) but alas, the days are longer, the drinks are colder and the shorts are shorter – hay gurl hay! So, by popular demand I designed another booty and thighs workout – my Buns of Steel Workout.
This workout can be done in your living room and requires no equipment. You will need a yoga mat or soft surface for some of the isometric toning work at the end. When doing this workout, go HARD from start. Don’t save up. For best results, really get your heart rate up in the first 3-4 minutes. Also, keep your abs engaged and tuck your tail bone under during all of the standing exercises.
The workout takes 10 minutes and you can expect to burn 80-100 calories.
You can do the workout on your own (instructions on the left) or with me by following my video (above). Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube Station for lots of fun workouts you can do at home 🙂
Rock those daisy dukes!
Hey gang! Hope your week is off to an EXCELLENT start. Here’s a 10 minute HIIT (high intensity interval training) workout video that I shot in Central Park NYC. The workout is intense and efficient! You need to 2 medium/heavy dumbbells (at least 8 pounds for women and 15 pounds for men). To get the most out of the workout, do NOT take breaks unless I say so! 🙂
HIIT works because it forces us to push to our highest level of perceived exertion for short periods of time. This increases our anaerobic threshold, which burns a TON of calories during and AFTER the workout. Try the workout for yourself and let me know what you think. It’s a great way to get sexy for summer! #heygurlhey #heyboyhey
Sick of crunches? Search no more. Here’s a fun, fierce ab workout that I designed and filmed for you guys. You need to 2 medium dumbbells to complete the workout. It takes about 10 minutes and you can expect to burn 100 calories. Do the workout 3-4 times per week along with some cardio to get your Six pack by Summer!
I think you’re FABULOUS! xoxo, Brit
Hey hey! Here’s a new workout video I made last weekend. It is intense! If you want a 10 minute cardio and abs workout, search no more. Expect to burn ~200 calories and for your abs to be on FIRE! Below is the description of the the workout in case you want to do it on your own without watching the YouTube video. Hope you like and hope you SWEAT!
Lots of luv, Brit 🙂
After Turbo NYC last weekend, we made this 15 minute cardio video for you guys. Remember, you can always modify the high impact moves. So, step side to side instead of leaping or do deep squats instead of jumping. My only rule is that you give me 100% of your energy!
Hope you love it. Try the workout and let me know how it goes. Remember, SWEAT IS SEXY!
Lots of luv,

The word of the week is = PROGRESS! GRIT Ultimate Body Burn Vol. 1, my total body workout video will be released very soon! Last month I posted an article to express my excitement and gratitude after finishing the video shoot. Since then, we’ve made even greater strides in post production.
