20 Minute At Home Workout For January

Wild Rosebuds January Easy 20 minute at home mom friendly workout, no equipment necessary.

Ok Guys, Its official. I have the privilege of having a good friend as a Personal Trainer and we have joined forces to create a way to have NO EXC– USES on working out. She has designed a 20 minute work out for you each month, with little to no equipment that can be found in your house.

Not only has she provided you with such a great, effective workout, but also the schedule in which to do it and the addition of reps as you go along.

Each month, we will bring to you a new workout and feature some of my favourite gear to wear as we break a sweat in a short amount of time.

So, throw on your gear, grab your yoga mat and a bottle of water, and lets make 2017 the year to feel better about ourselves.
