FitnessGlo – Finding Time for Fitness!

When I was offered an opportunity to  try out FitnessGlo as a Fitfluential ambassador, I thought, Sure, I’ll try it. Why not?  Maybe it will help me stay on track.  I never realized it would be the ONLY think keeping me somewhat on track at all!  ( Don’t MISS THE GIVEAWAY for a free 90 membership to FitnessGlo on the bottom of this post!)

Since I am 42 and do not have small babies, I feel badly about saying I can’t get to the gym because of my kids.  I know there are wonderful moms out there who are at home with babies feeling badly that they can’t get to the gym, or out for a walk, or  any kid of workout going on because they are busy dealing with kids and CANNOT GET OUT.  I remember those days. However, now that my kids are 14 and 11, I shouldn’t have that problem.  Especially since I’m a work from home mom who’s job is writing for goodness sake, therefore I set up my own hours.  I should be able to get to the gym, or out for a walk around my EXACTLY ONE MILE block, right?

WRONG.

Because even if you your kids are 14 and 11, when they are sick, they want Mama. BOTH of my kids have been sick and  it’s involved a hospital or two,  multiple steroids, breathers, inhalers, and an OR. And no workouts. Until I remembered the FitnessGlo site and logged in.

OMG. I have been SAVED people!

FitnessGlo is a one stop gym in your house.   This site sets you up and  there is NO reason to fail. The workouts are phenomenal. Scared you can’t keep up?  Only have 10 minutes?  No problem!  You can  pick your workout by style,  teacher, level and duration.  Worried its going to be too much for you?   don’t be!   This site was developed for women, by women, and they GET US. This is what FitnessGlo has to say:

FitnessGlo was designed to change the way you feel about fitness. Many fitness programs get very complicated, very quickly and before you know it you’re tracking so many different factors, it’s easy to lose your way or decide to skip your workout altogether. Our goal is to keep it simple: find a workout, do the workout.

Yes, THIS.   I have been able to fit in workouts as I can.   I’ve been home with a sick kid, or it’s been raining or brutally hot out. Instead of just giving up on sweating it out, I’ve been tossing in  workouts on FitnessGlo.    I haven’t been following any real patterns, just choosing workouts that look good to me.  They have a bunch of different instructors- I, personally, LOVE Jeffrey Scott – his style is exactly what I need. However, this week I am starting an 8-Week program on FitnessGlo to provide a little structure to jump-­start my routine!   I’m starting the beginner 8 week program, which is geared toward those  who haven’t worked out in a while or have never worked out. This 8-week plan starts out slowly & takes time for rest days, which  helps build endurance gradually over time!   WOOT!  That is EXACTLY what  I am about!  Getting back on track!   This is week one:

  • Monday:1000 steps
  • Tuesday REST
  • Wednesday: Elevate your Energy
  • Thursday: Rest
  • Friday: Lift your Energy
  • Saturday: Seated Sculpt
  • Sunday: Dance for Energy

I can SO do this!  Each week builds on itself and  then once the 8 week program is done, you can move on to the next one.  Don’t think that FitnessGlo only offers beginning classes. There are classes and programs for ALL levels!  I am excited to have this program available.   I’ll be  doing my daily workout and tracking how I’m doing right here- so keep coming back to check on me!  Let’s see what 8 weeks will do!

YOU can try out FitnessGlo with a 15 day free trial, AND I’m  giving away a FREE 90 day membership.

WOOT WOOT!

I love how FitnessGlo helps me get a workout in when I have limited time and space.  I do it in my office, even when I only have 10 minutes!   Good Luck with the giveaway,and remember, there is a 15 day free trial if you can’t wait to get started!
