Happy Halloween week, Killer Bs! I hope you’re ready for a super sweaty Mini Challenge, because… well, because even if you’re not ready, this is happening. 😅
This week we’re all about kettlebells and running, and I know for some of you, that’s a “no and no” situation, but hear me out: I use the word “running” all the time because I enjoy it and I think of myself as a runner. But I never, ever say it to exclude my Bs who don’t run! In my mind, running is a catch-all word – sort of like the way we all say Kleenex, even when we buy other brands of facial tissue – that encompasses all speeds and all levels of fitness and enthusiasm. Walkers, joggers, sloggers, woggers, and runners are all welcome in my workouts!
And I say kettlebell because I’m using a kettlebell, but it’s truly not a required piece of equipment. Anything heavy you have in your house – water bottles, soup cans, milk jugs or dumbbells – are all acceptable substitutes.
I do hope you’ll give all these workouts a try, even if they’re not immediately appealing to you, because you never know when you’ll find your next new favorite workout thing. Maybe you’re a kettlebell enthusiast or a runner, and you just didn’t know it yet.

On MONDAY, we’re starting the week with an all-new CARDIO + BOOTY HIIT that’ll get your heart pumping without your feet leaving the ground! This all standing, low impact kettlebell workout delivers your day’s high intensity cardio and muscle-toning strength in a super efficient 20-minute package. And if you want to keep the kettlebell party going, I’ve got a SUGGESTED STACKER for you, too.
TUESDAY’S all-new Let’s RUN podcast covers a topic near and dear to my heart: CROSS TRAINING FOR RUNNERS and walkers. While going for a great 20-minute walk and run with 1-minute intervals, I’ll tell you all about why, what and how much cross training you should be doing to run and walk your best. There’s a SUGGESTED STACKER at the end of this video, too.
WEDNESDAY’S workout is an all-standing, all sweaty CARDIO HIIT workout that burns maximum calories in minimum time. This quick 10-minute routine really packs a lot of effort into a little time. The SUGGESTED STACKER is also equipment-free and lots of fun!
On THURSDAY, we’re busting out the kettlebell again for a terrific and efficient CARDIO + STRENGTH HIIT that’ll tone your major muscle groups while challenging your heart and lungs.
And FRIDAY, we’re running again with one of my favorites: a PROGRESSIVE INTERVAL LADDER that’s just tough enough to show you that you’re tougher!
