20 Minute Home Core Workout

Finding My Center (In Two Ways)

It seems like the older I get, the more I feel I don't know. As most of you are aware, I've battled knee injuries since May. A self-proclaimed fitness influencer, I've questioned my expertise during recovery. It's been 7 months since I've been able to run, squat, lunge, or jump. If you haven't noticed, these exercises made up the bulk of my workouts. The physical pain has been limited, but the emotional turmoil has been strong. I know this issue is insignificant compared to what so many people are suffering through. But I've felt a loss of identity and a rush of anxiety because of it.

You know what's scary? Thinking you need to spend hours in the gym to get results. Not so scary? Toning your legs and lifting your booty in less than 30-minutes from wherever the heck you want to! The days are getting shorter and schedules are getting busier (and we aren't even to the holidays yet!). This means we need to make sure to take advantage of every minute of your workout.

Toned Abs Do-Anywhere Workout

No matter what the latest fitness trend - big buts, round shoulders, small waist. There's one thing that will always be in style - a strong core. So much of the fitness industry relies on the aesthetic benefits of regular exercise. Scroll through Instagram and you'll see a plethora of toned women with minimal body fat and well endowed chest and booty. These images aren't only toxic for our own body-image (if we don't look like that), they can be completely un-motivating. There may have even been times you completely gave up on exercising and eating well because you thought, "What's the point? I'll never look like that!" Let me tell you, the point is to live a long, mobile
