The ‘Break-Up’ Workout: Fitness Friday

This week, Amanda shows you how to bounce back after a break-up. With this work out, you’ll be out of the pajama pants and looking HOT in no time, because feeling and looking your best is always the best revenge!!


The ‘Break-Up’ Workout – Get your NEW HOT BODY!

Break-ups are hard, and let’s face it, unless you live a completely mundane life, in which you don’t ever open up to another human, chances are we’ve all had our hearts broken, it’s part of life, and if you haven’t yet, I highly recommend it. As hard as it is to go through a break up, I think they ultimately make us stronger and serve us some of the best life lessons. If you are reading this, chances are you know what I’m talking about, or know someone who is going through it. Break—ups often lead to one if not more of the following: eating everything in sight for comfort, too many cocktails in ‘mourning’ of the loss or in ‘celebration’ of a new road ahead, a complete abandonment of your workout regimen! But I’m here to tell you, a strong workout is one of the BEST cures for a break-up. Not only will it get your endorphins flowing and sweat out a lot of the negative and depressed energy, but getting into your best shape is probably the sweetest revenge, not to mention that you’ll be looking and feeling more confident as you begin to strut your stuff and put yourself back out there. I’m asking you, PLEASE don’t fall victim of the frumpy sweatpants with the ever-expanding waistline. PUT the ice cream down, get up off that couch and get fierce.

Here is your Bounce-back From Breakup Workout:
