Polar Vortex Workouts


Have you ever heard of a Polar Vortex until 2014? I hadn’t!! Leaving out all the scientific details.. I’m pretty sure we have figured out it means persistent subzero cold temps and deep freeze! Brrrrrr.

This is my last week home with Ava and because of the Polar Vortex we have been pretty limited and forced to stay inside most of the week. That means my workouts have been indoor and somewhat limited.


I honestly can say these workouts have been SO FUN.. and I am giving all the credit to Ava. The last two days I got in 2 strength training workouts each lasting an hour!


I was able to practice my Group Power routine which was great.  Ava laughed and smiled the whole time so I kept going. It was the fasted hour long workout I have ever done and she motivated me to keep going. As long as I was moving she was HAPPY. It was a win-win for both of us. Except when I was spent she wasn’t happy haha.

It is very hard to capture that smile on camera but I will get it soon! At least we know how to put her in a good mood! Play some music and workout… whatever works!!
