Favorite Free Youtube Workouts

A sudden chill to the morning air. A few leaves falling from the trees. The enticing call of a cup of tea or hot bath. Yes, fall is right around the corner. And with the change of the seasons typically comes back to school and back to work rituals, including for many people, a focus on fall fitness. Which is what has inspired this month's post. I love to workout, and I especially love free workouts. So that's why I'm sharing some of my favorite YouTube workouts.

Blogilates Extreme Abs 3
Doing this without any weights is hard enough, but add some 5 lb ankle weights and then try this workout and I promise you will die (in a good way). Casey Ho's upbeat personality and chatty nature will at least help you forgot some of the pain. There's also Extreme Abs 1 and Extreme Abs 2 if you just want to keep going with it.


Action Jacquelyn Love Yourself HIIT
Jacquelyn Umof has a lot of video offerings to choose from, but this is one of my favorites. It's 20 minutes of HIIT (high intensity interval training) and it will get your heart rate pumping. Not too many bells and whistles here, but you're in, you're out, you're done.


Tone It Up Total Body Mermaid Toning
I love working out with Karena and Katrina of Tone It Up. They are always fun, energetic, and upbeat. One of my favorite workouts of theirs is this fun and effective mermaid-inspired toning routine.


Christine Bullock Fit & Sexy with Brook Burke
I've been a big fan of Christine Bullock for some time now and have a number of her workout DVDs. And I'm loving this new collab she did with Brook Burke. Great workout and wellness inspiration from two fitness icons.


Bonus: Boho Beautiful Meditation
Feeling like your fall needs some peace and tranquility? Try a meditation video with Boho Beautiful. I love Juliana's soothing voice, and the filming locations are breathtakingly gorgeous.


Technology Tip
Don't want to have to watch the videos on tiny phone or tablet screen? Then grab a Google Chromecast. This cheap and easy to install device will stream YouTube videos (as well as other compatible apps) from your mobile device to your TV.

Burning Man Photo Shoot

Last month I grabbed some girlfriends and one of our favorite photographers, Eric Green, and we headed out to Moses Lake for a Burning Man-inspired photo shoot. Fellow models are Nancy Elizabeth and Jada. Here's what we came up with :)
