Step out of your comfort zone!

Step out of your comfort zone!

Happy Wednesday y’all! I love Wednesday because I don’t teach classes or have any clients…for now…so I can “sleep in” {except I usually still wake up before 7am} and get my workout in early. Well usually I can get my workout in. This sick girl has been out of commission for the past few weeks and I don’t want to push it. I don’t want to make myself worse and have even more set backs! Hence the lack of marathon training updates. Hopefully I be back in action soon. Until then, I’ll keep telling others what to do for their workouts 🙂

Speaking of telling others what to do, I have a fun, different new workout for y’all to try. It’s going to take some stepping out of your comfort zone, but trying new things is what keeps your workouts fun and interesting!

This workout is going to include a step! Yes, I’m talking about a 1980’s cardio step used for step aerobics. {Which by the way is not only an awesome workout, it’s a super fun one too. Yes, it still exists and yes, I teach it…weekly!}


If anyone can get me one of those leotards, I will be your best friend forever. I want one so bad!

Now I know that most people don’t necessarily have an aerobic step laying around their house. {except of the cool kids like me} Luckily there are plenty of other surfaces that will serve the purpose such as a street curb outside your house, any short bench/step 6-14 inches tall, a short wooden box, etc will work. Also check and see if you have these available at your gym! Most will have a few available for use outside of the group exercise room. I can tell y’all are super excited now, so here’s your new workout!



Make sure you do both sides of those squat in the squat series for set 2 🙂 No cheating! Give it a go and let me know what you think. I promise you’ll get a full body burn and want to do it again! While you’re at it, get in a bit more cardio and check out a cardi step class. I promise you’ll have a good time.

Have you ever been to a cardio step class? What did you think?
What’s your favorite workout that required you to step out of your comfort zone?
Mine was trying out the TRX bands! I only tried them for the first time this year and learned a lot. I was definitely nervous about falling the first time I gave them a go!
