Trainer Tip Tuesday #2

Try exercising outside. The fresh air and amazing temperatures we have had the past few days makes working out more enjoyable! Being outdoors can be soothing & it can help reduce stress levels. When I am outside I tend to relax, take in the views, and my mind clears. They also say a little Vitamin D is good too right??

For a lower body focus grab a set of dumbbells and try these 2 exercises:

Sumo Squat:

To maintain good form for the Sumo Squat keep your chest up, rotate your hips back as you squat, and focus on keeping the weight in your heels as you stand.

A key point on form in a forward lunge is to make sure that your knee does not pass your toes as you lunge forward. Also try not to drop your chest forward.


WARM-UP with a light 5 minute  jog around the block or a brisk 5-10 minute walk.

Complete 3 Sets of 20 Repetitions of each exercise. In between each set perform 20 Jumping Jacks.



***Always consult a Doctor or Physician before beginning a new exercise program***
