I introduced Jennifer Pinder and Kyle Furlow in July. The Raleigh moms are owners of Boot Camp Moms, which has been helping moms and others get fit for three years.
I spent a morning with them and more than 30 other women as they ran us through drills and more squats than I care to remember. It was painful in a very good way.
Well, Jen and Kyle are back here on Go Ask Mom starting today. They'll be sharing what they like to call "fast and furious workouts."
For those of us who exercise already, these are quick, 20 minute workouts you can do on days that you don't hit the gym or the pavement for a walk or run. For those who are looking to get into shape, it's an easy and good way to get started. Jen and Kyle offer modified versions of many of the exercises. Boot Camp Moms demonstrates fast, furious workout
And you need very little equipment other than a mat or towel and some three, five or eight pound weights or, if you don't have any, water bottles or cans of food.
So let's get started! Kyle and Jen demonstrate the exercises in the video. Here's a quick rundown of the workout (again, it's best to watch the video to see how it's all done).
