Well, the weather in the greater NYC area is finally beginning to show signs of spring! For me, it’s about time. I’m so tired of lugging my down jacket around with me, never knowing when the air is going to take a turn towards the too-chilly.
With spring comes so much fitness fun: outdoor runs, anyone? Yes, I know you can run outdoors in the winter—but isn’t there something awesome about taking on a trail in the spring, when flowers are beginning to bloom and it isn’t swelteringly hot yet? I’ve also used the beginning of spring as an excuse to refresh my workout routine. I’ve recently tried some fabulous classes at Hastings Yoga and Soul Cycle Scarsdale. They’ve both challenged me in different ways, and I’ll be reviewing both studios soon here on my blog.
Today, I’m refreshing my workout routine in a new way by kicking off a 10-day Accelerator Program with O2MAX Fitness. I recently completed their 3-month Event Ready Program (I talked about it on my previous personal blog, linked here) and I absolutely loved it. Their program is easy to follow at home, and fits well with my busy schedule. Karen Jashinsky, the founder of O2MAX invited me to try out this accelerator program for free, so I couldn’t resist. For the next ten days, I’ll be posting a brief update regarding my daily workout here. This will give me a way to stay accountable and check my progress, and will give you an introduction to O2MAX. I hope you enjoy this mini series!
Here’s my Day 1 picture!
Today’s workout included one of my favorite moves — bicycle crunches! What are some of your favorite fitness moves?
