Spring/Summer Fitness Series #4

Deep breath, you are almost there! This is the last workout in our 2010 Fitness Series! Think of doing it as' icing on the wedding cake'!! Our final workout comes to us from Sara Dean, personal trainer and owner of Sync Fitness!

Hello Seattle Brides! I love this time of year. Helping brides prepare for their big day is so exciting. I have lovely ladies of Seattle come to Sync Fitness every year t get their rears in gear for their wedding day. Of course every bride has her own body wish list: cut shoulders, 6 pack abs, ripped back, smaller hips, firm buns and toned guns. We work hard to check off each item on that wish list.

Of course, every bride wants to get the best result in the shortest amount of time (because, let's face it, as a bride-to-be, there are NEVER enough hours in the day!) So my secret weapon for brides is combining strength and cardio into each and every workout. This is entirely possible and can be done in a short amount of time. Give me 30 minutes and I'll have you huffing and puffing and begging for more! The key is to keep your heart rate soaring during your workout. So you choose exercises that make you pant! Here's a little sample workout that you can do in under 30 minutes:

Jumping Jacks
Push Ups
Walking Lunges
Pull Ups (weight assisted or negatives if needed)
Body Weight Squats (GET LOW!)
Mountain Climbers (or as Clutch Events likes to call them, 'the devil')
Full Sit Ups
Tricep Dips
Jump Squats

Perform each exercise for 30 seconds and perform 3 rounds of this workout. Try not to rest between exercises. Rest for a FULL 2 MINUTES between rounds. This rest will allow you to PUSH, PUSH, PUSH during each round.

This is the kind of workout you can find me doing with my Sync Fitness Boot Camp in Wallingford. If you need more ideas, come check out a class! We would love to make you sweat!

I hope you enjoyed Clutch Event's Fitness Series! Now go work it out and enjoy the rock'n body you'll have this summer by incorporating these four work outs into your weekly regiment!!
