Have you ever wondered what the best type of workout is for your body and busy life? Well, you’re not alone! Many women fail to workout just because they don’t know what type of exercise to do, or they’re just too busy. But toning your body doesn’t have to be as hard as you make it out to be! Find the right workout for your body type and busy schedule and you’ll be able to start toning your body in no time!
For the stay at home mom who doesn’t have a lot of time
We understand that your job is unendingly busy, but lucky for you, workouts don’t have to be done in the gym! Try to fit in easy moves like lunges and squats while your kids are sleeping or playing! It’s very easy to sneak in these moves throughout the day. When taking the groceries in from the car, lung to the door instead of walk. Set your timer for every hour and do 10 push-ups every time it goes off. Or take your kids for long walks so you can get moving! As a busy mom, you don’t need to carve out an hour each and every day to workout. Instead, get your body moving in very sneaky and simple ways around the house!
For the workaholic
If work is your number one priority and you don’t have time to make it to the gym, don’t fear! HITT (high intensity interval training) workouts might be the answer for you! HITT workouts only take 15-20 minutes of your time each day and they will tone your body fast! With a high intensity workout, your body will burn fat fast and you don’t have to carve an hour out of your busy day to tone your body. If you commit to 20 minutes in the morning or before bed, these HITT workouts will start busting your booty! There are countless HITT workout videos on YouTube that you can easily follow. Check out our favorite gals, Cambria Joy and Sarah Days for fun workouts that are easy to follow!

For the unmotivated gal
We get that committing to workouts can be somewhat of a hassle, but if commitment is your problem, then workout classes will keep you accountable! Anything from a gym workout class to a soul cycle spin class will do the trick for you. Workout classes give you a set time and day to show up and work your body, so it will keep you on track. Not to mention, working out with others and a class leader will help you push yourself.
For the stressed out gal
Stress can take a major toll on your body. And if you find yourself always taking on other’s problems or brining your stressful work home, then it’s essential to find a way to relieve all that stress! Running will give you the opportunity to clear your mind, burn fat and de-stress. Running is a perfect exercise for you because you’ll be able to challenge yourself and take care of your stressed body in a healthy way.
For the gal who isn’t seeing results
Everybody’s body type is different and sometimes your body just needs to be worked in different ways. If you’ve tried the whole cardio and body weight combination for a few months, but just aren’t seeing results, then try to mix it up! Incorporate a couple HITT workouts into your weekly workout routine. Try a spin class once a week. Or try swimming! Swimming is tough because it requires a lot of cardiovascular strength, but it will work muscles you’re not used to working and it will give you the results you want. Your body needs a little shock every now and again so don’t be afraid to mix it up and have fun with your workouts!
Have fun with your workouts and enjoy the way you’re taking care of your body!
