A Fit Quilter Workout Schedule

The fit quilter winter workout formula is designed with a focus on cardio but doesn’t ignore your six-pack or total body conditioning.

If you have a collection of workout DVD’s you can customize your workouts to fit your life.

My fit quilter Schedule

  • 2 whole body workouts that include strength, abs, and cardio
  • 1 workout that concentrates on abs (also has a bit of cardio)
  • 3 workouts that are full out cardio
  • 1 day of rest/stretch

Why I Love to Workout every day

  • It makes me more creative
  • which gives me lots of new quilting, music, and blogging ideas!

  • It energizes
  • Which gives me the motivation to work on those quilts, piano music, and blog posts

  • And puts in a great mood (most of the time – I’m human, I’m not perfect 🙂 )

This year I decided I wanted to start the year with Turbo Fire

The first time I did Turbo Fire I was 50, lost 10 pounds during the first round. That was 6 years ago and it’s still my favorite go-to cardio program.

What do I love about Turbo Fire?

  1. Upbeat and lively music
  2. Chalene Johnson motivates you throughout the workout
  3. There are enough routines that you won’t get bored
  4. I lost 10 pounds without changing up my diet that much.
    Although I did use recipes from the nutrition guide, honestly?
    I still drank my wine, ate my whole grain muffins, and ate bread and pasta!

What don’t I like?

  1. The strength training workouts.
  2. The schedule has you do a 30-minute strength training and a 30-minute cardio in one day.
  3. Call me lazy if you like, but if I don’t do those back to back, one won’t get done.
    And I have this psychological thing against putting that second disc in the player!

Decided I needed to create my own plan

One that will give me

  • plenty of cardio
  • – something I think is important in the winter months when I can’t get out as much.
    And I think it’s important for Quilters too. We tend to have to sit a lot while at the sewing machine!

  • A couple of days of Strength Training
  • a day focused on my abs
  • a rest or stretch day.
  • Has only a few days that are over 30 minutes
