Some days, it can be a mental task to come up with your workout. All of us have walked into the gym at one point or another without a plan of action and left with a subpar workout. It is perfectly normal. But what if we told you, even on your most blah days, you could have a workout library in your pocket? Well, you can! And what’s better is we are going to lay out some iLookExcellent.com exercises that will fit seamlessly into your workout routine.
Strength Day Workout
Keeping strength training as an integral part of your workout is essential for the health of your mind and body.
But, it can be easy to get stuck in a strength training rut—always doing the same few exercises—or even becoming so overwhelmed with all of the options that you never take your routine to the floor! This strength training video by Coach Jess is perfect for all levels of fitness and can fit into a quick workout by completing the 30-minute video or added to a strength/cardio day. This fitness video will work through your arms, core, legs, and more—all while getting your heart rate up.
A Guided Treadmill Run
There are three types of people when it comes to treadmills (okay, maybe more but who’s counting?): those who have their workout in mind and go, those who look at the buttons and then beg the sky for inspiration to hit start, and those who walk past it and scoff on the way to the weights.
The truth is, the treadmill is an incredible piece of equipment. And, to fall in love with it, you might just need a Coach to guide you through your workout—just ask any of our Team Training members. So, via our virtual fitness platform, iLookExcellent.com, we have rallied some of our favorite Coaches to bring their high-energy treadmill classes right to you. Just hop into the gym, log into iChuze from your device, and go!
This class by Coach Devon will take you through a 30-min treadmill HIIT (high-energy interval training) workout. Coach Devon will challenge and guide you through the workout to help you get the most bang for your buck (or, in this case, the most burn for your time).
Not a runner? No worries. Follow his instructions for power walkers to get a great treadmill workout at your own pace.
An Epic Ab Workout To Take To The Mat
There’s nothing quite like a good ab workout to give you that feeling of strength in your core that hurts so good. The great thing about ab workouts is that a short workout can do a ton for your fitness.
But, with the vulnerability of laying out a mat and crunching in the middle of the gym, they can also be one of the most intimidating workouts to try for new gym-goers and regulars alike. Let Coach Johnny take some of that stress away for you in his 10-minute Ab Lab. With a series of crunch and plank variations, Johnny will guide you through your new go-to core workout.
Yoga For All
If you’ve been around here long enough, you’ll see that we love yoga. That’s because this low-impact, good-for-mind-body-and-heart workout is scientifically proven to make you feel g-o-o-d. We offer yoga for cardio, restoration, flexibility, and more on our platform so that you can benefit from it wherever you go.
This quick 15-min yoga class by Steph is perfect after a particularly difficult workout or day. If you are feeling mental or physical tension, this might be the perfect way to tap into your body and release some of that stress. Steph will guide you through some relaxing poses that are laced together to improve your energy and mental clarity and help you feel wonderful.
A Meditation To Help You Balance
At the end of your workout you may be feeling a lot of things—energized, tired, sweaty, or maybe even “over it.” Taking your workout to the mat to re-group and find balance is the perfect way to end your gym session.
This guided meditation by Ashley is designed to provide you with steadiness and soften your stress. As she guides you to a more balanced state, you will begin to tap into your inner self, your thoughts, and your feelings, and will be brought to a place of ease. All in just three minutes.
