What Workout to Do When You Don't Know What to Do | My Top 3 Tips

We all experience it, those days where we want to do a workout, but have no idea what body part to work on, and what exercises should be in the workout. We can't even blame this issue on a lack of planning, because I don't know about you, but I’ve had scheduled workouts I'd rather skip over. So, what do I suggest? Going Back to the Basics Often times we start to think of exercises as “the more complex the exercise, the more effective they will be”, and this is honestly not necessarily true! The basic exercises are the ones that are actually most effective; the ones that you build your foundation of your exercise repertoire off of. Don’t be afraid to...

7 Ways to Stay Motivated to Exercise Regularly

I’m not going to lie; despite being a “fitness influencer” and business owner in the fitness industry (where my job is literally to workout), I too have days where I just don’t want to get up and workout. Sometimes it’s because I am completely burnt out, but other times its pure laziness. You know the difference when you feel it; it's when you have that energy in you to workout, but you’d rather not.

30 Day HAPPINESS Challenge

Ive seen a lot of these types of posts on Pinterest and thought i would try my own, as i find that health and fitness is about so much more than working out and eating right.

If you are actively working on your self-care and creating a happy space in your mind, it will become a norm. If you go through this challenge (or any other for that matter), make sure not to get down on yourself if you miss a day, its counterintuitive to go through it and feel horrible if you...

May 30 Day Morning Challenge by growwithjo

It took me a very long time to figure how to work out in the morning. But once i did, there was no turning back. Sure i have days where i workout later in the day due to a late night up, or when i plain just want to stay in bed for an extra hour, but most days i wake up quite early to get my work out on.

Today, I want to challenge you...
