Tone It Up While It’s Cool With These Indoor Workout Ideas

With temperatures cooling down, many of us will head indoors to break a sweat!  While the brisk fall weather is enjoyable, sometimes you just want save time and get it all done in one place!

This is a circuit you can do at home or the gym, using just a few pieces of equipment. Dumbbells, resistance bands, and a mat are all you need!  Get your muscles working and your heart rate up with this workout!  I’m also featuring my favorite everyday fitness essentials, to take you through your fall workouts in style.

Versatile basics are key when putting together an active look that looks chic and can handle a workout!  I like to stick with neutrals and small pops of color.

Every woman needs a great pair of black leggings!  This style is available in colorful prints, too.  Next, add a strappy sports bra that’s ultra comfortable and supportive.  Let the bright straps peek out a bit when you layer it under a tee or tank.  I love a spin on a classic, such as this twist front tee!

There are three key essentials I always have with me when I’m headed to the gym:

  • My Fitbit Alta: Tracks my workouts, sleep, and steps.  It also tracks my heart rate!  I love being able to see all my stats and progress in the Fitbit app…so motivating!
  • Using a fruit infuser water bottle makes hydration a more flavorful experience! My favorite combos lately are lemon/orange or cucumber/lime…
  • Listening to music while working out has not always been my thing…until I got these amazing Bose Wireless Headphones! I love them!  They’re so comfortable and easy to wear, I forget I have them on.  I can listen to my favorite playlists and podcasts while exercising or on the go!  They block out noise and the sound quality is top notch.

For your next workout try my latest circuit!  Start with a 10 minute warm up on the cardio machine of your choice, do the circuits, and finish with 10-20 minutes of cardio on a different machine, if you have time!  Or head outdoors for a walk/run.

Go through the first circuit of movements twice, performing 8-10 repetitions of each exercise before moving on to the second group of movements. Then, perform two sets of 8-10 reps of the second circuit.

Circuit One:

  • Single Leg Glute Bridge
  • Trunk Flexion
  • Side Lying Hip Abduction
  • Trunk Flexion

Circuit Two:

  • Squat (with dumbbells or body weight)
  • Shoulder Abduction (with bands or dumbbells)
  • Bicep Flexion (with bands or dumbbells)
  • Tricep Extension
  • Trunk Flexion

Hope you enjoy this workout!  Have a happy and healthy fall!
