{health} work it out - circuit training

I finally joined the 21st century and got a new pair of beautiful, lightweight, mesh training shoes.


I found these puppies at Nordstrom Rack for $50.00!
They originally retailed at around $110.00 on Nike's website.

SCORE.

They really do make a difference while working out. I feel so light on my feet.
They are also pretty, which helps. :)

I was trolling Pinterest, per usual, and found this awesome circuit workout made by The Fitnessista.
I laced up my brand new trainers and tried this out at home after warming up and stretching.


Verdict: 
Whew! Tough. I love that it works out so many different muscle groups.
Also. It lasts about 2-4 songs, depending on how long they are.
Gotta love a quick and effective workout!

For a more detailed explanation to each item in the circuit, check The Fitnessista's page!
[such a cute blog name.]

Remember. Check with a physician before you start any drastic workout plan.
I began a gradually more intense workout regimen over the last 3 months with a personal trainer.

Here's to being healthy and happy!

    1. I loved using a trainer! I just moved back to Tampa from my college town so I don't have one anymore, but it was well worth the money I spent! I really had no idea HOW to work out before... what a good training schedule was, the correct form for circuit types of exercises, or even how to get the most out of cardio. I lost 6 lbs this summer & went from a BMI of 27% [unhealthy for my height/age], to a BMI of 21% in three months. :) You should definitely check out your training options if you feel similar to those sentiments when you go to the gym.
