If there is one thing I have learned in the last three years since deciding to completely overhaul my life to be the healthiest version of myself possible, it is that you have to treat working out as if it was an appointment with your best friend. It is so easy to put off working out or put other things higher on the priority list so that you “run out of time” to workout. Since exercise is such an enormous part of getting healthier – not to mention the most fun part – making time to get even 30 minutes a day in is crucial to your long-term success.
Recently I had a chance to try Figure 8 Fitness, a complete fitness and nutrition program that is 100% online – meaning you can access it anytime, anywhere. Even though my gym is 24 hours, I still find myself crunched for time and needing to workout at home. As much as I love my gym, nothing beats being able to simply log into my computer and get my workout in without having to pack my gym bag, drive to the gym, wait for a machine, drive home…well, you get the idea.
Figure 8 Fitness is not only a great workout – but it is probably the most fun workout I have ever done too! That may sound cliché – but even the girls have had fun joining in for the “dance party” Mom is having in the living room. Figure 8 Fitness Founder Jaana Kunitz is a former competitive Latin Ballroom Dancer who brings her love of dance to the fitness community with workouts including moves from the Merengue, Samba, Salsa and more. You will not only get a great workout – but also learn some great dance moves! How cool is that?!
I have just begun using the Figure 8 Fitness workouts – and I have to tell you, they work your core unlike anything else I have ever tried! Having been a fitness instructor for the last two years, I thought I had a pretty good grasp on full body workouts – boy was I wrong. From the very first workout, I knew this was not your typical at-home fitness routine, and I immediately fell in love knowing that this was going to change my body unlike what I have tried before.
When you join Figure 8 Fitness you are given immediate access to their complete library, which includes the Figure 8 Fitness Book, The Figure 8 Nutrition Book, the Figure 8 Full Workout Plan, Figure 8 Express Workout Plan, and – my favorite – the Success Trackers, where you can literally track your changes as you go through the program. You also gain access to their exclusive Facebook Group where you will meet thousands of other men and women on the same journey as you – sharing their stories, successes, and support from all over the world. Check out this great video from people who have succeeded with their fitness goals with the help of Figure 8 Fitness:
I am really excited to continue to use Figure 8 Fitness throughout the summer with the goal to wear something I feel absolutely fantastic in for my upcoming birthday! I know with the help of the 14 workouts, the full nutrition plan, Jaana, the community support, and all of the “standing crunches,” I will be rockin the mid drift in no time!
