A motivational note from Octane Fitness team member and certified group fitness leader, Kelly:

Do you feel like you are falling off the workout wagon because you do not have enough energy? Workload, stress and the normal day-to-day activities can attribute to having a lower energy level. However, what you might not realize is that exercise can actually increase your energy level. Your body craves some type of physical activity. So don’t fight that craving. It is time to get out of that funk and back into your spunk. Find your motivation, do what you need to do to get you going. Just tell yourself that you will not take “no” for an answer. So put on the workout clothes, get on your elliptical machine and get to it! Once you get back on the wagon, your energy level will increase, and I know you will feel better.

Exercise Tips
Helpful descriptions of some of the more difficult or lesser-known exercises listed above.

  • Plank Jack with In and Out Leg Kicks – Hold plank form and do a floor jack, move legs out and in, as you hold the plank. After completing one floor jack, hop knees in toward chest and back out while still maintaining your plank form. Repeat for duration of circuit.
  • Supine Chest Fly – Lay flat on your back with legs out straight in front of you and move weights / resistance bands from sides in fly motion until they are over your head. Raise legs and then simultaneously lower legs and arms to complete chest fly with leg raises.
  • Tricep Squat Pushup – This is a signature move from Insanity workouts. Lower into a squat and hold. Put your hands up and lean forward to bring hands down to floor for a pushup, remaining on the balls of your toes, then push yourself back up. See how to do one.
