Well before I was a trainer, I designed my own workouts, both out of boredom and rebellion. I
loved love doing my own thing, to my own music, and to the beat of my own drum, which was something that I couldn’t do while following along with a DVD.
There are INFINITE ways to combine movement that will get you a good, specific & targeted workout. The best trainers know this and design their classes/programs around those different techniques. But if you know the very basics, it’s NOT that hard to do it yourself! Plus, when you plan your own workouts in this way, it makes it a little easier to stick to the program.
You don’t need fancy moves, in fact SKIP fancy all together. Use moves that you know and are comfortable with at first. That means if you don’t know what a burpee is? Don’t do a burpee for YOUR circuit. But learn how to burpee so you can add it in once you’ve got it down.
This workout will target your whole body and you just need 6 moves. That’s it. SIX. And I bet you already know 6 moves, or at least a few from each category. Take your favorite moves and list those first, then SLOWLY, over time, add new moves in as you master them. So, let’s say you take a kickboxing course and liked a certain cardio combo? Throw it into your workout next time. Suddenly learn a different kind of squat? Do that instead of the basic. You can even use youtube for easy moves to keep YOUR workouts interesting. And since you only need 6 moves, it’s not time consuming to do a little research.
Plus, your fitness vocabulary will explode in no time. :)
