As a fitness professional with education in exercise programming, I know that a well rounded program should include aerobic training and strength training as well as balance, flexibility, and recovery. Ideally, aerobic and strength training should occur multiple times per week with the other elements weaved within. Realistically, I think it is most reasonable for me to start with the two classes I'm teaching each week and to add more in at home as I regain more strength, endurance, and (hopefully) sleep. The logistics of exercising at home with two children is probably my biggest challenge. I'll be using ChaLEAN Extreme, Turbo Jam, and Hip Hop Abs for home workouts and plan to add Turbo Fire as well (love the HIIT workouts!). In addition, I will continue my efforts toward healthy eating, including Shakeology. Ultimately, my goal is to be able to exercise at home 3 times per week in addition to the classes I teach. I don't know when I'll get there, and there will probably be weeks where none of the home workouts happen, but it's good to have goals ;).
