Workouts complete for the week

What’s the ideal amount to work out each week? That’s a great question. It’s certainly different for everyone, both depending on your schedule and your fitness goals.

However, one thing is certain: You should try to do a diverse range of exercises each week, including cardio, strength and stretching. And you should always have at least one day of rest to recover and repair.

Sweat is Good.

That inspirational right there.

And you heard it here first.

Weekly Workouts

Here’s what my week looked like in the workout department:

  • Monday – 30-minute CXWORX core workout at home
  • Tuesday – taught one-hour BODYPUMP class
  • Wednesday – taught one-hour BODYPUMP and one-hour BODYATTACK classes
  • Thursday – taught one-hour BODYATTACK class
  • Friday – attended one-hour yoga class, taught one-hour BODYPUMP class
  • Saturday – taught one-hour BODYATTACK class (about to go do this now)
  • Sunday – (tomorrow) rest

That’s a full schedule of sweating, with six days on and one day off.

What’s good about it? I did a combination of workouts.

What’s bad about it? I should have done at least one more workout for myself, outside of teaching classes. Although I fully participate and model the exercises for participants when I teach group fitness, it’s still important for me to train outside of the group fitness room.

Now that I’ve become a certified personal trainer, I’ve got a lot more tricks up my sleeve in the fitness department, which I plan to start trying and sharing with you soon.

It’s Saturday, the sun is shining, it’s Kentucky Derby Day and the Golden State Warriors have a big game tonight. Time to head out, break a sweat and soak in the weekend.

Questions of the day

What did your workout schedule look like this week?

Are you going to get outside to enjoy the weather or stay inside and watch sports?

  1. I just found your blog and fairly new to the city. I love looking at your SF tips/ reviews. Have you ever been to the yoga class Tuesday night’s at Grace Cathedral? It’s donation based and really cool ( more relaxation yoga than power).

    1. Hi Nicole,
      Thanks for stopping by. I’ve heard about yoga at Grace Cathedral but never gone before. I’ve attended a service at that gorgeous church though. I teach classes on Tuesday nights, so I won’t be able to try it out anytime soon, unfortunately unless they offer it other days.
      I hope you’ve clicked on my “San Francisco” page for some more tips.
      Where did you move from? 🙂

  2. This week I did:
    Sun: CX/BC
    Tues: BP
    Thurs: BC/BP/BF
    Fri: Taught BF
    Sat: BP/BC

    Thursdays are long, but I usually feel strongest and I’ve found that I teach and feel better on Friday if I stay for Flow on Thursday nights.

    1. Hi Breanne,

      That’s a great schedule. I see your workout schedule includes a lot of Les Mills group fitness, just like mine. A triple-threat on Thursday is fierce, but ending with BODYFLOW is a good way to do it. Hope you’re having a good weekend! Do you teach anything other than BF?


      1. Yup, tons of LM every week. It’s a nice balance right now. 🙂 Flow’s the only class I teach right now, but I’m going through Sh’Bam training this summer (!!!!!) and thinking about CX.

        Hope you’re having a good weekend too!
