Fit Women’s Weekly Live Review

I am not getting paid to promote this, I am paying for my own membership. I just really like these workouts and want to share them. I am also hoping some of my friends sign up so we can workout together online.

Today I am excited to share the streaming gym I have been using over the last several months! Welcome to my virtual gym Fit Women’s Weekly Live. And yes that is my computer on my sofa. It is currently reaching 115 degrees here in the afternoon so working out in the garage isn’t an option right now.

That is Kindal on my computer screen leading a workout in her gym. Kindal and her husband Dan own and operate a women’s fitness studio in Charleston, South Carolina, called This Time Fitness. When COVID hit they took their gym and clients online and offered their workouts over Facebook. I have followed Kindal off and on over the years from her fitness blog and podcast.

I am always interested in how other trainers train so when she began offering the workouts for free I jumped on the chance to try them out. I loved them so much that when they created a membership option I signed up.

I started doing these workouts in April and then signed up for the six week challenge. It was fantastic! It motivated me so much. Plus it was so good for me mentally to take an hour out of my day to focus on my overall health. It also helped me stop stress eating all the chocolate in our house, lol.

Here is my picture from April and July. I have lost 5 pounds and overall endurance has improved so much. Also I feel super weird taking these pictures now and posting them online, hahahaha, the difference between 36 years old Tam and 28 year old Tam.

I love the live workouts when I can catch them. And if I can’t, I don’t have to worry about missing them because I can do them later. There are always 30 days of previous workouts to stream so you won’t be without tons of options.

I love the accountability of my online gym! I can communicate in real time if I am doing the workouts live but if not I generally get a response back within a few hours. Below is a picture of a sweaty selfie that I uploaded after a workout. You totally don’t have to do this, I just know that as a trainer I always get happy to see my clients working hard and sweating, so I like to share the love with Dan and Kindal.

The FWWL Schedule & What You Need

Here is what the week looks like. I am going to post the live streaming in Arizona time :).

  • Mondays 7am or 1pm – Intervals
  • Tuesdays 7am or 2:30pm -Weights
  • Wednesdays 7am or 1pm – Legs
  • Thursdays 7am or 2:30pm – Arms
  • Fridays 6am or 1pm – Kettlebells
  • Sundays 10am – Stretch

Equipment needed is super minimal. Which is good because there is a shortage on dumbbells, kettlebells, and anything else fitness related at the moment. As long as you have a set of dumbbells or a kettlebell you will be good to go. If you also have a jumprope and bands that is great too but not to worry if you don’t.

The cost of a monthly membership is $57. This includes 2 live workouts each day Monday – Friday plus a Sunday stretch and 30 days worth of previously recorded workouts. You can also upload video of yourself performing exercises to have your form evaluated.

The workouts are so much fun. It is something different every single time. Both Dan and Kindal are great. You will get a great workout with either trainer but they have different training styles and intensity levels. Kindal typically does the morning class and Dan the afternoon. Every single workout I have done has pushed me and challenged me.

The workouts last around 50 minutes. This was such a change from what I had been doing. I had been maybe working out 30 minutes around 2-3 times a week. Now I have been consistently doing hourlong workouts 5 days a week.

There is also the community aspect which I love. If you do the workouts live you can talk with other members during the rest breaks via Facebook. You might even make a new friend or two :). Sam B. if you are reading this I hope you are having a great day!

Cardio Interval Workout

Last week I completed my third week of a 6 week virtual challenge with This Time Fitness. Monday’s workout was cardio intervals and left me dripping in sweat and feeling so accomplished.

Here is the workout…

Most of these exercises don’t need any explanation. For the super squats perform a squat jump into a jumping lunge on each leg and back into a squat. It is a burner for sure. I was dripping with sweat at the end.

The first round you perform 40 seconds of super squats followed by 90 seconds of jumping rope. The next round perform 40 seconds of super squats, 40 seconds of pike pushups, and 90 seconds of jumping rope. You continue adding on an exercise each round.

I am loving all these workouts from Kindal and Dan. If you are interested in their live streaming classes you can reach out to her at [email protected]

This upcoming week I am doing something new to me and taking two virtual cooking classes online! I am so excited!

It is also our last week of virtual schooling for our oldest. What a crazy and sad end to the school year. I have so many feelings about it. When I think I am doing ok a new wave of emotions hit and it is the silliest things that make my have all the feelings. Our three littles got to pick up all their preschool end of the year books and packets and seeing all the teachers was just…I don’t even have a word for it. We love our preschool so much.

Our 3 year olds had made little pom pom chicks at our last class and they had them in their bags. Those silly little yellow pom poms made me cry. The boys were so happy to see the chicks they had made and I just lost it. Our family has been so blessed by all the teachers at our preschool who have loved on all our babies. Jesse kept saying “My baby chicky” over and over again and hugging it.

I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. Thanks for reading! Have a great rest of your day :).

Arms & Core Workout

Happy Friday! I hope you are all safe and healthy wherever you are reading this from. We have been enjoying our backyard this week even as the heat has started creeping up in Arizona. We have had several 100 degree days already. Here are some pictures of our wildflowers and our blueberries.

We have been trucking along on getting school work done, trying to keep our garden alive, disinfecting and cleaning our house, and getting to spend so much quality time together. I am reminding myself daily all we have to be thankful for, which is so much.

I did get emotional this week when we drove by a preschool friends house to say happy birthday from the car. I got to see several friends in their cars and it was just such a weird surreal experience. I was so grateful to see them all but gosh it was hard at the same time.

I have been trying to workout around 6am before the kids are up for the day. I am so happy to share a workout I did this week. My upper body is so so sore. I did this workout I am sharing yesterday and holy moly. The pushups were intense and I loved it.

I have been doing the workouts that This Time Fitness has been posting on Facebook and they have been great. I have been enjoying them so much that I signed up for a 6 week virtual challenge with the studio. This Time Fitness is in South Carolina and I am in Arizona so it has been fun to do these workouts in realtime with the owners Kindal and Dan.

I completed Kindal’s kettlebell program Strong last year and really enjoyed it. I read her fitness blog years ago which is how I discovered her training programs. I highly recommend them. Fun workouts that help you get stronger and leaner.

Yesterday was the first workout I took that Dan programmed and my arms are feeling it today. Here is the workout with a few modifications made by me…

For the numbered exercise you will start with 30 of each and progress down on the next go around. Try to do the pushups slow and controlled. For the pushups that are the down portion only lower your entire body to the ground from plank position. For all pushups focus on your elbows being straight back as opposed to out to side.

Your first round will look like this:

  • 30 Knee Pushups
  • 30 Elevated Pushups
  • 30 Pushups (Down Only)
  • 12 Lat Raises
  • 30 seconds each of the following: Bicycle Crunches, V-Ups, & Leg Raise

Your next round you will drop the reps to 20. The negative reps were so hard for me but I loved them. I hadn’t done negative reps of any exercise in such a long time.

I am not going to lie the first two rounds took over 20 minutes but it goes much faster towards the end.

If you are looking for motivation I highly recommend Kindal and Dan’s programs and workouts. They have created a virtual studio on Facebook that will contain 44 workouts each month. If you are interested it is only $57 to join. You can find more information on their virtual studio HERE.

I hope you all have a safe and healthy weekend!

xo, Tamara
