Burn Calories Wherever You Are with these FREE Fat Loss Inducing Workouts

Here at IdealShape, we understand that most people don’t have hours every day to devote to the gym. In fact, most people are lucky to even get out of the house and to the gym at all. That is why we developed the 12 Week Shape Up Challenge; a challenging workout program that can be done not only in the gym, but in your own living room! No more stress about making time to get to the gym everyday. And the best part, it’s FREE!

Anyone, Any Level, Anywhere

The 12 Week Shape Up Challenge is a full body exercise program that was created by fitness coaches, Skyler Meine and Chris Abney. The 12 week Shape Up Challenge helps anyone, at any level, get in shape and feel great. So whether you are a fitness pro or just a beginner, we can help you!

Fast Fun Workouts and Fat Burning Nutrition

At the beginning of each week, we will send you a new series of workouts along with an article that will give you a nutritional goal for you to work on throughout the week. The nutritional goals are designed to improve your diet and to help you develop long-term healthy habits. Each workout is divided into 3 segments. Each segment is designed to last 10 minutes, thus giving you an effective 30 minute workout. The workouts start out simple and then build on each other each week to bring you the best results. So be sure to stay engaged!

All You Will Need is…

Each of the workouts for the Shape Up Challenge are intended to be done in the comfort of your own home. All you need are some dumbbells, a set of elastic resistance bands, and a physioball and you are ready to go!

The workouts each week will consist the following segments:

  • Warm up and Active Stretch- These exercises will prepare your body to move correctly during exercise but it will also improve your flexibility. We recommend that you do these exercises every day before your workout.
  • Core Workout- These exercises focus on strengthening and tightening all the muscles in your midsection including your back, abdominals and glutes. We recommend that you do these exercises at least 3 times a week, but if you have the time you can do these every day for best results.
  • Calorie Cyclone Workout- The exercises in these workouts will be done with weights or elastic bands to improve strength and increase lean muscle tissue. These workouts are only to be done 3 days a week on non-consecutive days.
  • Metabolic Circuits These workouts are high intensity interval workouts that will get your heart rate up and get you burning calories right away! We recommend that you do these workouts 3 days a week on the days you are not doing your Calorie Cyclone Workouts.
