Hi Shift Makers!
Welcome to your Workout Guide, I'm so excited you are here! Your goal is to do a workout at least 2-3 times a week, intermittent with cardio 4 - 6 times a week. Feel free to add 30 - 45 minutes of cardio on your Workout days as well. Whether you choose the Cardio workout below or perhaps try and get outdoors, walk, run, bike, hike, skip, jump rope, play tag with your kids or cousins, just get the heart rate up and have fun!
I encourage you to connect with other Shift Makers in our Facebook community! Don’t underestimate the power of posting, sharing, inspiring and motivating each other. Remember it's about knowing you are not alone and supporting each other's journey's! Studies have shown that when you have a support group, accountability partners and other like minded people who are set out to achieve goals have a much higher success rate than those who don’t.
Sometimes it will be challenging to stay on schedule, so feel free to switch up the days. You can do the workouts on consecutive days if you absolutely have to but it is smart to let your muscles rest/heal. But if you need to get that workout in, then I encourage lighter weights for those days to prevent muscle strain.
DO your BEST: It’s all what works for your schedule, your goals and your lifestyle. If you need further guidance, please contact Amie at email@example.com
IMPORTANT: Please remember that you must work up to these workouts! These are designed to shift your body, they are tough, and challenging, be kind to yourself no matter what.
If that means starting with just one set OR no weights GREAT! We all have to start somewhere and SOMETHING in ALWAYS better than NOTHING! You do what you can and work up to it, as your fitness level rises you'll be adding more reps and more weights. I encourage you to set an intention and goal with each workout and do your best to reach it! If you need breaks, take em, you need water, drink it, always honor what you need!

Now lets real, some days are going to be harder than others, that's OK, that's NORMAL. This is a good place to practice compassion and be judgment free of yourself!
Just make sure you are doing your best to get better each time you workout.
YOU MUST WARM UP & STRETCH AFTER EACH WORKOUT NO MATTER WHAT- THIS IS THE #1 WAY TO PREVENT INJURIES & HELP RECOVERY.
Let's make a pledge right now, say this out loud:
I (your name) promise to warm up and stretch when I workout, this is a key component on my path to SELF LOVE
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
This is SO IMPORTANT, I'll say it again, LISTEN TO YOUR BODY. Yes, I'm a believer in pushing yourself to your edge in order to get results, but it's incredibly important that you know your body, knowing when to push and when to rest. It's imperative that you know the difference between workout "burn" & muscle fatigue and sharp pain &/or tingling. If you over do it and hurt yourself you'll end up with downtime. I want you to stay in the flow, so take a second, when needed, take it slow.
Like I mentioned above, these workouts are designed to challenge you, they are Fat burning, strength and endurance building. Do your best to make the greatest effort in every workout. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY- STOP if you are no longer able to use proper technique. Modify and/ or rest when needed so you can finish your workouts. Make sure you are challenging yourself with each workout, if you can’t complete the workout, that's OK- just do as much as you can each time.
The weight you choose will greatly depend upon where your fitness levels are now. The best way to know you are working with the right size weight is that by the tail end of the exercise it is very challenging to get in the last few reps. It may take some time to get to know what size weights you need for the various exercises. Until you’ve know, if you start with a weight that is too light, you can either go to muscle failure or put it down, and grab a heavier weight. You want to challenge the muscle, so if it feels too easy, chances are, you’re doing it wrong and you will not get the results you want.
Cardio is a great way to reduce stress, release toxins and trim down. As mentioned above 4 - 6 days for 45 minutes is encouraged for results. Make sure you have one day at a 8 to 9 high-intensity cardio - sprints in a park, outdoor stairs, find ways to switch it up. When you are doing your high intensity cardio it should be difficult to carry on a conversation. If weight loss is your goal try adding more high- intensity cardio along with your weight training. Pick one day to enjoy a light walk for 30-50 minutes outside and one to two other days can be a medium-intensity cardio – pushing yourself, but able to carry on a conversation.
