5 Workouts for Every Fitness Level
Goooood Morning and Happy Friday! Hope everyone had a solid first week of the new year…can you believe it’s over already?!
Today I’m sharing 5 different workouts for every fitness level. I know many people made goals for 2017 to get back into the gym. Hopefully you have a plan already in place or you are working with a trainer. But, if you are looking for a fun workout, you’ve come to the right place.

These workouts are broken up by fitness level. This is NOT to say that someone who falls into the Advanced category cannot do a workout in the Beginner category. Or that a Beginner cannot necessarily do a workout in the Advanced category. The organized these based on difficulty of the exercise, workout structure or piece of equipment.
For example, one of the workouts in the Advanced category uses a Steel Club. That’s not a piece of equipment most people have, but if you do, it’s likely you know how to use it properly. Additionally, the moves can be modified to use dumbbells or bodyweight.
It’s all about progressions and making sure you are doing a move and workout, that fit your fitness level. Below each workout, I’ve listed options for progressing or regressing the workout.
