my favorite workout (lately): Spinning class - I always feel the burn and taste the sweat!! As a recently certified instructor, I know I have NO excuse to not work my hardest. Kickboxing - a new discovery. It's hard. It hurts. but it's so worth it!! As an off-season runner these two workouts have kept me on my A game.

I hit the treadmill about 4 times a week, either at home or the YMCA. Trying to improve my pace by running progressively harder/faster later into the workout so my body gets used to running when tired.

I think I posted in the wrong forum, but I've been working with my son who worked out with the football coach at school and he was giving me some tips. I never used to do the plank for the abdominal muscles, but depending on how long and what position, it really works! That, combined with a workout preprogrammed on my treadmill, I should be good.

I just started a workout yesterday that I love. All treadmill fanatics will love this workout. 0-10 min warm up; jog at 5.0 mph, 10-11:20- sprint at 7.5 mph, 10:20-11:20- jog at 5.0 mph, 11:20-14:00- repeat minutes 10-11:20 twice, 14-17 min- jog at 5.0 mph, 17-27 min- run at 6.5 mph, 27-31- jog at 5.0 mph, 31-35 min- run at 6.5 mph, 35-36 min- jog at 5.0 mph, 39-55 min- repeat minutes 31-39 twice, 55-60- slow pace to cool down at jog/walk. The incline should be set at 1% the entire time. Enjoy!!!

I am a person that hates to go to the gym and do the same thing all the time. In addition, I never have more than an hour at any given time so I make a good faith attempt to create workouts that are 1) structured 2) efficient 3) get me out of there in 60 mins. As well, the workout can be tailored to be shortened if need be by cutting out one or more parts of the treadmill pieces. So here it is: Treadmill circuit (45 mins): 10 minutes jogging, beginning at 6mph and going up .1 mph each minute and ending at 7mph. 10 minutes walking on an incline at 4.2mph and 6 incline, increasing .5 incline every minute 10 minutes of sprints, walking 1.5 minutes at 4mph and sprinting for 1 minute at 8mph 5 mins of first jogging segment 5 mins of first walking segment 5 mins of first sprinting segment. In total, that portion burns upwards of 500 calories, keeps it interesting, and is always challenging. For the last 15 minutes I attempt to do 3 mini-weight lifting circuits that incorporate 20 squates, 20 lunges, 20 biceps curls, 20 rows, 12 push-ups and 100 situps. You can defintely get all of them in in 15 mins. As I said, it might seem like a lot but I promise it goes by in a flash. And it melts the fat off!

My standby treadmill workouts are intervals - I love the belly fat burn of speed! For this you can stay low - btw 0 and 1 incline. Warm up, 5 mins at 5mph Sprint for 1 min at 8mph, rest 1 min at 5mph. Do this 3 times. Sprint for 45 seconds at 9mph, rest 1 min at 5mph. Do this 3 times. Sprint for 30 seconds at 10mph, rest 1 min at 5mph. Do this 3 times. All together this workout gets you to 19:45. I cool down at 5mph for 5 minutes or so, getting me to 25 minutes and around 2.5 miles.
