Guest Post: Play ground Workout

As a mom, I know how hard it is to find time to workout during the day and especially if you don't have a gym membership or the luxury of equipment at your house.  So today I have the awesome fitness expert Brittney, of Get Fit With Brit sharing a workout that you can do at a park using just the playground equipment around.  I am so excited to try this workout! 

Hello!  I'm so excited to be on West Coast Capri for a second post.  Today I'm going to give you some tips on how to make working out more convenient for you, especially those moms out there who can't find time away from their kids to work out.

I love being outside whenever I possibly can, especially in the summer I much rather be out in the sunshine than in a sweaty gym.  Most people think of working out outside as running, biking, swimming, hiking, more steady state cardio stuff, but today we're getting outside of the box.  We're using body weight, and high intensity cardio intervals to give your body a totally new workout.  One of my new favorite places to get my sweat on is at the local neighborhood park.  It doesn't matter where you live, how wealthy you are, or how many kids you have, everyone has access to a park somewhere close by.  And if you do have kid duties, what better way to keep them entertained while you get a killer work out!  Its a win win really!

A lot of my clients will back me up in saying that you can get a butt kickin, full body work out at a park, because that's where I train a lot of them.  Some of my favorite playground 'equipment' to utilize are swings [can be similar to TRX straps], steps or benches, monkey bars, and grassy hill or stairs near by for those intense cardio intervals.  You don't need fancy equipment to sculpt your body.  You just need dedication, motivation, and an awesome trainer can't hurt either;)
