Can’t Make It To The Gym…
Yeah for Fridays! We finally made it through another week and one more week closer to SPRING! I can officially say I am sick of winter and ready to see the grass, blooming flowers, and enjoy my long runs outside without dodging random snow banks. 🙂 If you haven’t figured it out already, I really enjoy training outdoors. Since I spend a decent amount of time in the gym for work, the outdoors are very therapeutic for my sanity. Lately my training regimen has been the Stair Master, Yoga, and Circuit Training. I just haven’t been in the mood to train one specific body part these days, so Yoga and Circuit Training have been a great “tone it all over” routine.
*Make sure to check back next week for my review of Powerflow Yoga in Chatham! I have done 7 classes, with 3 different instructors in the past two weeks and it’s been AWESOME! *
Speaking of circuit training…I did this workout at the gym the other day and it was a pretty fantastic. If you don’t have time to get to the gym, then you can totally do this at home. I know most of my readers have this equipment in their homes, so I don’t want to hear any excuses. I did 35 Minutes on the Stair Master (no hands) and then the circuit took almost 40 minutes.

Do you like doing “Circuit Training”? If so, how many times a week or month do you do one?
