Chair Exercise – Three Body Sculpting Routines

3 Chair Exercise Routines That You Can Do Sitting Down

chair-routine

The following 3 chair exercise routines were inspired by some clients of mine who’s mobility had been limited for one reason or another.  If you have been injured or cannot use your legs, try these three workouts and let me know what you think!  These routines can be an excellent way to ease back into an active routine or keep your already active lifestyle in place after an injury.  

Even if you DO have full mobility, try these workouts out as a handy way to “talk yourself into exercising.”  

When you are aching or tired from your day, the idea of sitting down to exercise might sound more doable. In fact, after a LONG day at work, sometimes the thought of getting to sit down during a workout might be VERY appealing!

Whatever you do, DON’T QUIT!

When you come across a challenge in life, don’t let that stop you.  If you find yourself with a limitation; rather than letting it hold you back, find a way around it so that you can make the best of the situation. LOOK for solutions and you will find them!

OK, here we go!

#1

In this first video, try each move for 20-40 reps. Breathe on exertion as you sit up straight with your shoulder blades back and your neck aligned with your spine. Lack of mobility does NOT mean that you can’t get core strength!

#2

Don’t limit your challenges. CHALLENGE your limits! For this next workout, try each move for 20 reps (regular speed). Then, do 10 SLOW. Let me know how this works for you!

#3

For this last workout, do each move for 10-20 reps. Do each arm separate and then together! Do these exercises consistently to build upper body strength and increase your muscle tone!  

Check with your doctor before starting any workout regimen!  As always, if you have questions for me, please don’t hesitate to reach out on this page! Find me on Facebook at www.facebook.com/thefitBUZZbyLAURA 

Farmers Tan Thoughts of Encouragement

Like my Farmer’s Tan?

I had to chuckle at the silly farmers tan that I got today at our sons’farmers lacrosse game.

As I caught a glimpse of it in the mirror, after I laughed at myself, it got me to thinking…

As a Mom, I focus so much of my energy on caring for, looking after, and organizing everyone – that I forget to take care of ME too.

As Moms, we are caregivers, nurturers, chauffeurs, nurses, mediators, and hard workers.  We look out for the well-being of everyone around us, so much that sometimes we unknowingly forget to take care of #1.

While I DID put sunscreen all over the boys, of course I forgot to put it on myself.

So many times, we let our own needs slip to the wayside. Our work, family, and ministry keep us so busy that sometimes we lose track of self care.

Take. the. time. ladies.

You NEED some time to take care of YOU too. Even if it’s as simple as a little sunscreen.

Even the little things count

Don’t forget to take care of you ❤️
Self-care is not selfish.

If your nurturing does not include yourself, it is vastly incomplete.

Take care of you.
MAKE TIME for yourself.

And hold your head high
You have been gifted by God with such an esteemed position…

Press on Momma.
Give them the best of you.

And keep up the good work.

June Fitness Challenge

summerThis June, are you ready to get in shape and get some BALANCE into your busy life?

I’m looking for 15 busy ladies who are sick and tired of being tired, who need more energy to keep up with their busy lives, and who NEED the motivation to start and keep going with an exercise program.

Do you wish that you would have started your healthy eating and workout journey THREE months ago to prepare for the summer?
.
If so – It’s OK! Don’t panic now – just breathe deep and relax.
.
So you DIDN’T start 3 Months ago, don’t sweat it – remember that worrying about things NEVER gets them done!
.
It’s time to just do it. And do it right this time.
.
It’s time to get some organization and balance in your life in the form of a quick daily fitness routine that you can do at home, an easy to follow meal plan, an online support group to keep you going, and a COACH to hold you accountable and who will BEE there to pull you back on the wagon whenever you fall off.
.
Don’t let BUSY be your excuse!

22-30 minutes of your day can be wasted just scrolling Facebook, watching YouTube Videos, playing on Pinterest, or watching TV – why not use that time to make PROGRESS?

Are you ready?

I can’t wait until you come back telling me that you feel better than you have felt in a LONG time!

Are you ready have a program that is DO-ABLE for a REALLY busy person?

I can’t wait until you report back that your clothes fitting better, that your kids are eating healthier, and that you are saving money by meal planning and cutting out the JUNK. 🍕

Life gets hectic and we get BUSY – but we don’t have to feel like we are JUST SURVIVING.

It’s time to start living intentionally.

Changing a few very small things in your routine and repeating this every day will add up to HUGE results! That’s what we do – that’s what I’m here to help you do.

It’s easy to do, it’s easy not to do.
