I love working out! Strength training, running, pilates, yoga, hiking, you name it and I probably love it. There is no other way to recreate the feeling you have once a great workout is over. Keith and I try and workout first thing in the morning- which is typically around 5:30am. We like to get up and pound it out right away. It sets a great mood for the entire day. I find I make healthy food choices, sleep better and have better mental clarity throughout the day when I workout first thing in the morning. I have tried working out in the middle of the day and even at the end of the day, but find there are too many distractions preventing me to workout. Keith and I have three Snap Fitness gyms in and around Prescott, Arizona. Running three gyms consumes most of our time and I’m also a personal trainer.
Keith and I got married about a month ago and are going on our honeymoon to Mexico in November. Since I want to be looking the best I can, I created a new Mexico training program that I will follow up until we leave for our trip. I wanted to share it below with you. I will post my eating plan in another post soon.
My Mexico training program will be a 6 day plan
Day 1– 60 Minutes of Cardio –> I like to get at least 60 minutes to keep up my endurance. I’m a runner.
Day 2– 20 Minutes of Intervals + Legs and Shoulders
Day 3– 60 Minutes of Cardio
Day 4– 20 Minutes of Intervals + Back and Biceps
Day 5– 60 Minutes of Cardio
Day 6– 20 Minutes of Cardio + Chest and Triceps
In addition to the 6 day plan, I will be doing pilates, yoga and core at home probably 3-4 days a week. I have some videos that I really like to do.
I am going to try and focus a little more on strength training then I normally do to try and get added definition. I am coming off 2 days of strength and 5 days of cardio which I followed about a month before our wedding up until now. I was trying to lose a few pounds to fit into my dress and that plan did the trick. I probably wont be lifting heavy, I don’t want to add any muscle, so I will be sticking around 10-15 reps for strength. If you are interested in knowing what specific exercises I will be doing, let me know and I can post them. I will also try and get some pictures of my before Mexico up on here as well.
I think it is important to switch up workout plans. Since I do most of my workouts in a gym and I tend to get bored doing the same thing over and over. Every two months I like to come up with a new workout program to keep things fresh.
Here is a picture of our first gym- we opened it almost 3 years ago.
Here a a few past Mexico pictures!
