For the month of January I want to focus my content on helping you start 2017 strong. I want you to get started on your resolutions right away! Often times people make resolutions and never get to them. But this year, if your resolutions relates to exercise, diet, or overall health – I got you covered. Be sure to follow this blog for lots of post relating to all health/fitness resolutions.
For today, I have a full-length workout video perfect for those looking to lose weight in 2017. There are four parts to this workout: moderate intensity cardio, high intensity cardio, circuit training and core training. If weight loss is something you hope to achieve, this combination will help see a lower number on the scale. This workout will help you you burn fat and build muscle in different ways. It will keep your body confused, which will keep it working hard.
Variety is such an important factor to weight loss. Many people get discouraged when they stop seeing results from a program, but that doesn’t mean you are doing anything wrong or that you should give up. A plateau just means your body is used to what you are doing so you need to switch it up. This workout will give you the variety you need to avoid a plateau.
