  • If you have time, do cardio everyday!  But if you are lacking on time do a minium og 30 minutes of cardio at least three days a week.

Muscular Strength Workouts: weight lifting, resistance training

  • Aim for 3 full body workouts a week!
  • For simple and easy strength training I would suggest downloading the Nike Training Club app.  All you have to do is pick a 30 – 45 minute workout and go.
  • For short, high intense workouts check out my ZWOWz page.

Flexibility Training: yoga, Pilates

  • A little yoga everyday goes a long way!
  • My go to suggestion for flexibility training is Tara Stiles Yoga youtube videos.  You only need 1o minutes a day!
