The second cycle of the beginner workout will focus on the basics of strengthening your core. In this workout, you will use kettlebells, free weights, and bodyweight exercises to increase your overall core stability and improve strength and flexibility. Journey into a renewed healthy lifestyle as you develop a new fitness routine, get back your body confidence, and have fun.

 

The workouts will be posted each Monday. There are three workouts per week. Take a rest day between each workout. You will need a kettlebell and/or dumbbell set, yoga mat, great music, and a smile to complete this programming. Enjoy your athletic journey.
