FitnessGlo Giveaway

by Meghann on June 6, 2013

When I was in Atlanta for work last month my time was tight. It was basically go-go-go the whole time I was there with little downtime for working out, eating, or sleeping. The day we arrived I had a 45-minute window where I could squeeze something in at the cabin we were staying at. That was just enough time to open my computer and do a HIITS workout via FitnessGlo.

Screen shot 2013-06-06 at 7.08.42 AM.png

The 30-minute HIITS workout was just what I needed. It was a quick, high intensity interval workout video that combined strength, endurance, and cardio. After a day of being on a plane, then in the car, it was just what I needed to get the blood pumping again.

So what is FitnessGlo?

FitnessGlo was designed for busy women who need to sneak in a workout during a busy schedule. It’s a subscription site for online video fitness classes. The classes are shorter in duration and can be combined with other classes to create longer workouts. I was given a 90-day free trial via FitFluential and have been testing the workouts out here and there.

I really like the variety of videos available. There’s definitely something for everyone.

And whether you are a beginner or advanced, there’s a level of workout available for everyone too.

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.09.05 PM.png

You can schedule workouts, save workouts, or there are even designated workout programs that takes all the guess work out and tells you what to do. (these are the programs I like, tell me what to do otherwise I’m going to just stare at the screen and stall).

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.11.28 PM.png

There’s also a balance tracker that allows members to see if they are maintaining balance across strength, cardio and stretch each week – an important reminder to find balance vs. focusing only on cardio or only on strength (something we ALL struggle with). FitnessGlo’s entire goal is for women to find balance in their lives.

Screen shot 2013-06-05 at 9.31.16 PM.png

My favorite are the stretch classes. There’s nothing better than a good stretch, especially one where someone else is guiding you through it and telling you what to do.

I think FitnessGlo is a great site that’s perfect for busy moms or anyone constantly on the go. I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the classes when traveling as I know my time will be very limited when away. The teachers are enthusiastic (but not annoyingly so) and the classes are challenging, yet easy enough to do on the road.

Want to try FitnessGlo for yourself? New members are eligible for a 15 day free trial! Or… You can comment below for a chance to win a free 90-day trial!

Just leave a comment with your favorite way to squeeze fitness in during a busy day below and you will be entered to win a free 90-day trial to FitnessGlo. You have until Saturday, June 8th at 11:59pm EST to winner. A random winner will be drawn on Sunday. Good Luck!!

My favorite way to squeeze fitness in when I’m super busy is with a 20-30 minute at-home workout. I save a lot of time by not driving to the gym, and I have just enough equipment at home to still make it a pretty great workout!

I am fine with my ~6 – 10 mile runs in the very early morning … but for my wife it is more of a challenge getting in workouts. Our elliptical machine died late last year and we haven’t been able to replace it yet, so she has been trying to use the Wii with the EA Sports Active program … this would be a great thing for her!

I have a baby so sometimes it’s hard to get my workout in. If I can’t get out for a run I will get down and do push-ups and sit-ups, etc while playing with my daughter. She thinks it is a game and I hope by her seeing me having fun with it that one day she will want to as well.

I usually do things like take the stairs at work, park farther away from doors, balance on one foot at a time or do squats while I wait for the microwave… whatever little things I can do! I’d love to try the stretching classes on FitnessGlo, though – I am ramping up half marathon training for Dumbo Double Dare and I could use it!

First off, I love the new look of Meals and Miles! You look beautiful in your picture at the top.

I have to get my workout in in the mornings if I have a busy day. For example today I hopped on the dreadmill (since it’s raining) first thing since I have a ton of work to squeeze in before I leave at 2pm for Disney World (rough life), but knew I wouldn’t work out at any other point unless I did it early. I’m intrigued by FitnessGlo since I live in the country and getting to a gym/studio just isn’t in the cards due to my commute. And I’m tired of the same 6 yoga/barre videos I’ve been watching for the past 4 years! Thanks for hosting the giveaway. πŸ™‚

I try to get up early on days that I know I won’t have any time to get a workout in later. Or if can’t do that I try for a quick strengh/toning session whenever I have a few down minutes – pushups and situps are great for just that and can be done virtually anywhere!

My favorite way to fit in exercise on a busy day is to get up a little bit earlier and just do it first thing in the morning, even if it’s only a quick 15 minute session of core work, push-ups and stretches.

There’s a path behind my office that’s 1/2 a mile…I try to walk it 4 times a day when I’m in the office. The rest of the time – I’m running through airports for work travel…also effective. Would be great to have a subscription to this – I often find it hard to make time for workouts in my hotel rooms & some of the hotel gyms can be pretty bad.

On a SUPER busy day I’ll just up the intensity of my commute (whether it’s walking or riding) to make it feel like more of a workout. For a just slightly busy day (when I have less than an hour to squeeze something in) my go to is Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred- 22 minutes workouts that really get your heart going and you can find them on YouTube!

Getting up before your alarm would normally go off even if its 15-20 min to get in some exercise is worth the boost of energy throughout the day and the knowledge that you at least got some fitness in if your original afternoon workout does not pan out due to family or work obligations.

I usually wake up early to get my workout in but if I don’t have as much time as I’d like I’ll sneak in exercises throughout the day like doing calf raises while I brush my teeth… πŸ™‚

I have a few pilates dvds that are broken up into 10-minute segments. When I only have a very little amount of time, one or two of the 10-minute workouts is usually my favorite way to go.

Hi! I squeeze in a workout by getting to the gym at 6AM. It’s tough to get out of bed so early, but totally worth it in the end.

I just do short workouts when pressed for time~ HIIT/Tabata style are my fav’s. I write the routines in a notebook and if I go somewhere there is no internet, I always have something. There’s nothing like a workout at the playground while the kids play! No excuses.

Usually I just get up early, but if time is crunched I’ll focus on speed and run to get the most I can in the allotted time. Multitasking helps too….pushups and during rest stretch!

My favorite way to squeeze in travel is to stretch at work for 15 minutes! If I am at my home location I lead my co-workers during this time or if I am away I try to find an unused conference room to stretch! I also use some exercises from NROLW as a backup when in a pinch.

I travel a ton for work and have been interested in trying something like this out. It would definitely take the hassle out of small hotel workout rooms or finding a gym close by for a week long pass!

I wake up with the birds! @ 4am … Get everything together (what feels like my entire life to shower & change into a what looks like a human being), head to the gym for a grueling 2-3hr workout, and head to work (as a surgical Physician Assistant). I come home when it’s dark out, cook healthy meals for the family (yes, my parents and brother included!) and bake (some not so healthy, but delicious treats) for my company I recently started. Go to bed wayyyy too late and start all over again. Gotta love it! Working out at the crack of dawn…such a rush! I already feel accomplished by 8am…except those days when I have to be scrubbed into the O.R. @ 6am.

My favorite way of squeezing in physical activity/exercise is a quick high intensity workout such as HIIT or Tabata. They are totally awesome ways of getting a full-on fat burning workout which only takes around 15 to 30 minutes! πŸ™‚ Happy sweating y’all πŸ™‚
