    I’ve been in a Pilates routine for the last 3 years or so. I’ve tried tons of different things, but I just loved the way my body looks after I started Pilates, so I stuck with it. I also started pole fitness a few moths ago, so I throw that in once a week as well!

    Monday- 50 min mat Pilates

    Tuesday- 1 hour Pilates with reformer

    Thursday- 1 hour pole fitness

    Friday- 50 min mat Pilates

    Saturday- 1 hour Pilates with reformer

    It varies. I used to work out 10 times a week (Monday-Friday, mornings and nights). Last year I was working out 5 times a week and I was so happy and then I got into a lazy slump and didn’t work out at all Undecided! Now I’m getting back into it and I work out 3-4 times a week. 

    Last year I lost 10 kilos in the beginning of the year and I’ve now put it all back on! Ugh. I wish I could eat pasta, lollies,  chocolate, cheesecake and chips and not get fat! Tongue Out

    I work out 2-3 days a week but I don’t go to the gym or anything.


    I play tennis with a women’s tennis team so we have our practices and games and I also play in a flex tennis league for mixed doubles with DH.

    @WestCoast:  My workouts vary depending on the season.


    In winter, I like to go xc skiing after work.  I go to this soccer field near my work and put in my own track.  I don’t have the drive and I can take my dog.  A few times we had so much snow I could ski from my front door down the sidewalk!  Then on wekends I’ll go resort or backcountry skiing.


    In nice weather, I will either go trail running or mountain biking.  Sometimes I’ll even rock climb.


    If there is no skiing but it’s not nice enough out to do things outside, I will do Zumba indoors or something in my basement (like a CrossFit routine).


    Regarless of weather, I will do some sort of weight lifting in my basement 2x a week.


    So 3-5 days a week I am active.

    I go 5 days a week.  Haven’t been seeing the results I was hoping for yet, so I need to step it up.  But, what I’ve been doing is going M-F mornings and alternate running 2-3 miles and abs/arms with biking 6-7miles.

    I’ve been doing the 30 Day Shred, so working out every day. I missed a few days for my bachelorette party and bridal shower, etc. as I was out and about all day/night for those events and didn’t get a chance to workout. I am back at the 30 Day Shred now, and also added on additional cardio afterwards. I usually throw on my Just Dance for Wii and do the middle level sweat routine. I really enjoy it, so I find it helps motivate me to do the additional cardio. I don’t think I would be able to get on the elliptical after my shred workout.

    I’d say 3-5 times a week depending on my schedule. I just run on the treadmill or elliptical, it works fine for me for maintenance.

    @BP2Be:  body attack is awesome! It’s defnitely intense, but there are lots of low and high opitons so you can find something that works for you. I did it a couple years ago 2-3 times a week at my old gym, but then when I moved to my new gym they didn’t have it. Well, they just got it a few weeks ago so now it’s part of my routine! It defnitely kicked my butt the first class, but it’s fun too! Just jump in! Don’t get discouraged if it’s tough the first time, because I promise it gets easier!

    edit: my old instructor used to call the class “heart attack”… haha! she was really tough, but motivating.

    I exercise twice per week. On Mondays, I kickbox for an hour and on Thursdays, I do Pilates for an hour (without a reformer). Once the weather warms up, I will probably start to jog on either Saturday or Sunday mornings. I can’t believe how many bees exercise 5+ days per week! That takes serious commitment. I prefer to eat healthier and spend less time in the gym, simply because it consumes so much of my time!

    I was really fit at the end of last year when I was working out about 5 days a week. I’ve slacked this semester though and have hardly worked out at all. My toned muscles are gone!


    I’m trying to get back into it, but it’s tough. Right now I am trying to do strength training two days a week and 30 Day Shred two days a week. I’ve been failing. lol


    Hopefully once this semester ends I will go back into my normal schedule and work out five days a week through the summer. I like to do 30 Day Shred and strength training with resistance bands.
