Changing up my routine with Jenn-FIT workouts!


I’ve been adding some new workouts to my fitness routine…and I’m having so much fun with them…so I wanted to share with you all! :)

I came across this Jenn-FIT site/blog via Facebook one day and loved what I saw so I immediately started following her!  Jennifer posts GREAT workouts almost daily along with healthy eating ideas and lifestyle tips to keep you motivated with your routine.

She has tons of workouts posted so no matter what type of workout you’re looking for…strength training or cardio…there are lots of options to choose from.  One of my favorite things about her workouts…besides the fact that they are fun and challenging…is that many of them can be done at home.  Which is perfect for those days when I need to get a workout in but my schedule won’t allow me a trip to the gym!

I performed this Get Your Heart Rate Up workout of hers today and I loved it!

A couple of my other favorites so far are her Beach Girl Workout & her Ultimate Leg Workout. I also really like her Yoga and Strength Training Circuit…it’s perfect for a light workout on one of my short run days.

All three of us Healthy Mammas are about to start a 12 week 1/2 marathon training program and I plan to rotate some of Jenn-FIT’s workouts into my weekly schedule while I’m training.

Check out her site and blog, and follow her here on Facebook…I’m certain you’ll like her posts as much as I do! :)
