One of our barre3 online workouts subscribers, Amy, sent in her story and shared that she breaks up our barre3 home workouts into shorter workouts throughout the day. Like me she happens to be a busy business owner and mother of two children. She suggested that I create workouts that can be broken up or taken all at once. Well, she asked and I delivered!
I just launched a 60 Minute Lunch Hour Body Blast workout designed so you can do it easily right at your desk. I also posted it as six 10 minute workouts you can do throughout your day like Amy and I do! Here’s a look into my typical busy day and how I creatively keep fit!
6:30AM: Wake up too late to take a 1.5/hr yoga class I promise myself I would do the night before. Opt for the 10 Minute Mindful Core and Stretch to ease into my day.
7:00AM – 8:30: Wake the kids and get everyone ready for the day. Shower, breakfast, last minute homework and off to school.
8:30AM – 9:30: Answer emails, schedule meetings.
9:30AM – 9:40: Do a quick 10 minute Power Stretch to get energized and focused. I can do this in my street clothes!
10:00AM – 11:30: Work session with my Corporate Master Trainer, Lisa, to go over instructor training curriculum and revisions to our manual.
11:30AM – 11:40AM: After sitting for an hour and a half I am ready for Back Body Focus to strengthen and open my body the other way. A perfect complement to a seated work session.
11:45AM – 1:00 PM: Chris (husband and business partner) and Amy, our business development director and I meet with prospective franchise partners. Always a high point in my week!
1:00PM – 3:00PM: Weekly meeting with my team: Caroline, Lisa, Amy, Jenni, Kiki, Kait and Chris.
2:10 – 2:20PM: Manage to squeeze in a quick 10 Minute Arms and Core combo with mybarre3 producer, Kait, right at our conference table during a break!
Doing core work at barre3 Home Office.
3:00PM – 4:00PM: Work on a presentation for a conference I am presenting at.
4:00PM – 4:30PM: Pick up kids from Spanish class, give them a snack.
4:30PM- 4:45PM: Manage to tackle 10 minute Leg Shaker workout in kitchen (with kids trying to follow along – always a good time!).
5:00 – 6:00: With legs still shaking from above, I hand off kids to husband and race out for impromptu Happy Hour. Sometimes letting go with good friends and a glass of wine is the best “yoga” out there in my opinion!
6:15PM – 8:30PM: Dinner with family, pick-up, homework, bath, stories, bed.
8:30PM – 9:30PM: Answer emails, FB, Pinterest (my new obsession). I have good intentions to also squeeze in Strong Core and Healthy Spine but I let it go.
9:30PM – 10:30PM: Hang out with husband, sip chamomile tea, and watch a favorite show. Mad Men or AI? Such a toss up!
10:45: Set my alarm to take Candace’s killer 6AM barre3 class tomorrow…determined this time to make it. NOTHING beats studio classes.
