I'm a Mom of 3 so my time is VERY limited. I love these short workouts. I can focus on a certain body party/area or get a full body workout in by just doing a quick search. I always feel the burn when I do these workouts.

I have a long relationship with this dance studio but honestly any dance studio in your local area works. Working out and getting your body moving doesn't have to be exclusive to a gym. Most dance studios off adult classes and trust me they are so fu...

This is a top that is a little shorter in length so if you don't like to show your belly this isn't for you. For those that don't mind, it's sooooo comfortable.

This is for my true dancers at heart, the ones that are use to wearing the leotards growing up. This back is so gorgeous and its really really comfortable.

I feel like you can't have enough good joggers in your closet. These are affordable which I like and they are made really well. I can dig a high price jogger but sometimes a dupe is just all you need.

My husband and I watched the mini documentary series (which I also highly recommend). We don't cook out of this every night or even every week but we do strive to follow the philosphy behind this eye opening culture.
