Away From the Gym Workouts
March 18 - May 31
Welcome to the Total Strength Fitness Video Workout Page!
This page has been created to give my remote clients access to workouts that we have been doing. Anyone is welcome to use these videos; however, I caution everyone to go at your own pace and to know your fitness abilities before doing any workout. Of course, it is recommended that you check with your physician before taking on a new fitness routine. You also are welcome to contact Colleen with any questions. Once the current health situation settles down and we are all back to our normal routine, this page will become private. I hope these videos are helpful to you. More will be added over time. May they help you remain active, fit and healthy as you may be spending more time at home. Thank you for visiting and may you be blessed each day with the ability to move and have fun!
Standard Warm Up
This is a simple and quick warm up that you can use to get ready to move for just about any type of workout. It’s primary purpose is to get your joints a bit more mobile, to get your muscles a bit warmer, and to prepare your brain for a great workout! You can spend more time on each movement than is shown in the video – especially if you have a more intense workout ahead. OK! Let’s get ready to move!
Prime Time Fitness HIIT Workout (20 seconds on, 20 seconds off)
This workout is the Moving Monday workout for the month of March for my Prime Time Fitness Group. Prime Time Fitness is a group that I lead out of the Rockford Community Center. This group is made up of very fit seniors (I’d say men and women mostly in their 60’s – 70’s) who exercise diligently year-round.
Core Plus a Little More
This workout is a 10 exercise circuit that includes strength for abs, obliques, lower back, hips, glutes, and adductors (inner thighs). Once you have completed one round, go ahead and start the video over and do another one or two circuits. You can never go wrong working your core. If you had to choose one workout to do for the rest of your life, a core workout is the one to choose! Remember to do your warm up first.
Building Intensity 60/30 Body Weight Circuit
This workout is 60 seconds on, 30 seconds off. During the 60 seconds, the intensity builds from 30 seconds low intensity, 20 seconds moderate intensity, and 10 seconds high intensity. You can choose to stay at the low or moderate intensity levels throughout if you prefer. Keep in mind that although exercise is excellent for us, high intensity exercise can temporarily reduce our immunity. For that reason, either stay with the lower intensity options, especially if you still must maintain contact with the public during this time, or choose a less intense workout. Either way, thanks for popping in, and enjoy your workout today! Remember to do your warm up!
No Equipment Needed Full Body Workout
This could also be called the NO EXCUSES Workout! You don’t need a single piece of equipment for this circuit workout. This video includes a 6 minute warm up followed by a core, legs, back, and chest strength circuit that is just shy of 20 minutes. Challenge yourself to do 2-3 rounds. After completing one round, go back to about the 6 minute mark and begin your next round. Way to go!
Prime Time Fitness Core Plus Some Cardio
This workout was created for the the Prime Time Fitness Group I lead at the Rockford Community Center, but you are more than welcome to join us in this workout! This is a group of very fit seniors who are unstoppable! If you’d like to experience a similar workout but with even more intensity, come back to this page because a high intensity version of this workout is on its way! Until then, enjoy!
Kicked Up Core and Cardio
This is a kicked up version of the Prime Time version of this workout! Get ready for a butt kicker of a workout that includes some challenging exercises for your abs, glutes, hips and legs. For a bonus, we end each of the four workout sections with a burst of cardio! Just click on this video and get ready to sweat!Prime
Prime Time Fully Body Strength with Dumbbells
This video was created for a group of fit seniors who are part of the Prime Time Fitness class at the Rockford Community Center. This workout can be used by anyone as the intensity can be increased or decreased simply by changing the weight your use or the number of reps you do. You will need a set of lighter dumbbells and a set of heavier dumbbells. You also will need either an exercise ball or a bench. This is a great workout to help you gain the strength you need to do all the fun things you enjoy doing!
