Day 1 of the 30 Days of HIIT Journey! I hope you are as excited as I was when I started this program.
Hopefully you were able to take some time yesterday to print your calendar and set your intentions for the next 30 days and convince yourself that you can do this. I know you can!
That said, this is Day 1 – Let’s Beat the Gym!
As you kick off this program, I invite you to connect to the idea that fitness is a journey.
Commit to 30 days of being healthier and being a better you. Ignore the distractions and the frustrations. Be patient, the results will come. JUST DON’T GIVE UP!
Use this DAY 1 routine to check in with your body and mind. For my more advanced members, try to repeat the series until you burnout.
Get empowered, beat the gym, and let’s have some fun! If you want, use our hashtag #BeatTheGym, let’s hold each other high and accountable and let’s celebrate one another’s milestones.

Deep Squats – With your feet just outside your hips, squat down and dip your butt below your hips. Then straighten your legs and raise your hips.
Bent-over Arms Hold – Bend your knees slightly and bring your torso forward, by bending at the waist, while keeping your back straight trying to remain almost parallel to the floor. Now, while keeping the torso stationary straighten your arms and raise them, while squeezing the muscles at the top and hold for a brief pause.

Pause, and then push yourself back up to the original position.
