I love workouts that work in any space. Join me today in my awesome tent in South Africa where I stayed a couple weeks ago for this full body sculpt low impact workout!
This was the trip of a lifetime – I got to see so many amazing animals when I was on safari (pics for you at the end of the video) and get some much-needed rest and relaxation.
I can’t wait for you to do this workout – it’s amazing whether you’re at home or on the road like I was!
The Mini Resistance Bands I used in this workout are optional.
I just love them because they’re small and weigh practically nothing – so easy to toss in your bag or suitcase.
Get creative, and let’s get moving!
One-off workouts are great, but having a plan to follow is even better! Take a 30-day Challenge in Rock Your Life and have workouts like this formatted into a plan to follow!
