I love cardio workouts! You know why? Because with all the clean/healthy eating, the weight and resistance training, it’s CARDIO that helps us burn fat. I love adding cardio workouts into my daily routine because I know this. And, while I LOVE to run, I know not everyone does, and sometimes even I want to add some fun to my workouts – to spice it up, kick up the fun!
That is why I’m so excited about the new Country Heat program coming out this month. I am pumped to have another option for my 30-minute cardio workouts that I can do FROM MY HOME!
About four years ago now I started working out regularly from home because, frankly, I couldn’t afford the gym membership anymore. I was feeling pretty unhealthy and knew I needed to work on my fitness and my overall health, including my eating habits. I was a busy graduate student and working full time, but I wasn’t making the time to become the healthiest version of myself. That needed to change, and once I made that commitment, I’ve never been happier.
Sure, I’ve faltered a bit here and there. There are days when I really have to motivate myself to get the workout in or choose NOT to eat the french fries. I’m not perfect. But I am trying to be better – daily.
This all set me up for a healthy pregnancy and then, a speedy bounce-back after the baby was born. Although my times for getting my workouts in have shifted from nap times, to early mornings, to afternoons once I’m out of work but before starting dinner, I’m still able to fit them in daily to my crazy-busy-toddler-mom life! The point is, I’m making the time for myself so that I can be a better mom, teacher, wife and person. I’m taking care of ME so that I can take care of my family too!
Ok, so why am I so excited about Country Heat? Country Heat features the hottest country music and seriously, once you hear it, you have to start moving and then, you start that fat burning too!
I tried out the Country Heat workout myself this week on Monday, prior to its release, when it was free on Beachbody on Demand! “>This is what I thought about my workout.
What Country Heat IS
>FIVE (5) High energy and LOW IMPACT* 30 minute daily workouts
>1 extra Dance Conditioning workout
>Full body cardio with no extra equipment needed
>No complicated moves and again no weights or equipment
*This program is for ALL fitness levels. It’s low impact, so anyone can do it. But it’s high energy so you can ramp it up where you need to. Also, if you want to add this program in as PART of your fitness routine, you could. Keep lifting those weights then add Country Heat in as your cardio component – Win/Win!
What Country Heat is NOT
>Country Heat is NOT Country Line Dancing. It’s a cardio routine that has sets of two simple sets at a time.
>Country Heat is NOT filled with complicated choreography or the need for memorization of steps. It’s easy to follow along with and will have you working up a sweat in no time.
>Country Heat is NOT boring. If you like Zumba, or you like to dance, or you like Country Music, this is a perfect program for you. It’s high energy and filled with the latest music hits.
*The program is a 30-day program, which is how long I’ll be running for my challenge/accountability group.
*The nutrition plan is based on the popular, proven 21-Day Fix plan and uses the portion control guidelines to help us make healthier choices in our daily meal plans – this isn’t a diet, it’s a way of changing the way we look at how and what we eat. Let me repeat, THIS IS NOT A DIET! If you are ready to learn about clean and healthy eating, then this is the time!
*Autumn Calabrese is leading the program, which is incredible. She’s high energy and motivating and has certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and the American Fitness Professionals & Associates (AFPA), so I’m always confident that my workouts with her are tried and true.
*Are you or your spouse active duty military? If so, Beachbody offers a %25 discount on EVERYTHING – so this is an especially great opportunity for you.
*The results this program has brought to the test groups have been BETTER than the 21 Day Fix…what?!? How is that possible, you ask? Check out these results below:
