We'll all be doing it together starting Monday, July 16th! 💪🏻 It's the perfect challenge to keep your beautiful muscles toned all summer long with workouts like barre, yoga toning, weight training, dance…and kettlebells!

Do 60 seconds of each move, followed by 15 seconds rest. At the end of the circuit rest for 1 minute, then repeat the whole circuit! You got this!!
Triple Squat + Press + Pass Through LungeTones your booty, legs, and arms! Standing with the kettlebell in the racked position in your right hand (just in front of your right shoulder), lower into a squat then press the kettlebell overhead. Repeat three times before passing the kettlebell through your legs to your left hand as you step back into a reverse lunge with the right leg back. Step yourself back to start position with the kettlebell in your left hand and repeat sequence on the opposite side. Do for 60 seconds, alternating sides.
Kettlebell JacksSculpts your legs, booty, and core, and revs your heart rate! Standing with feet together, hold a kettlebell in both hands at chest level. Jump your feet out wide, landing softly with knees bent. Jump your feet back to start position. Pick up the pace while staying low and keeping your core engaged. Do for 60 seconds.
Reverse Lunge + Knee Drive TwistTones your booty, legs, and obliques! Standing with the kettlebell at chest level, step your left leg back and lower to the ground until both knees are at 90 degrees. Next, drive the left knee up as you come back up to standing and twist the kettlebell across your torso toward your left hip. Do for 30 seconds on each side.
Kettlebell SwingSculpts your core and booty, and raises your heart rate! Stand with feet slightly wider than hip-distance apart, holding the kettlebell with both hands. Hinging at the hips, swing the kettlebell straight back in between your legs. Driving the hips forward, swing the kettlebell up to chest level, keeping your arms straight. Remember the power from this move comes from your booty (not the arms or shoulders). Do for 60 seconds.
Kettlebell Wood ChopTones your obliques, shoulders, and arms, and revs your heart rate! In a wide stance holding the kettlebell by the horns in both hands, bring the kettlebell down to your left hip as you lower into a squat. Then quickly drive the kettlebell across your body, past your right shoulder and overhead, extending your arms straight. Slowly trace the kettlebell overhead toward your left shoulder and back down to the left hip, ending in a squat position. Do for 30 seconds on each side.
Kettlebell Hop Over BurpeeWorks your entire body and boosts your heart rate! Start standing to the left side of your kettlebell and hop over the kettlebell landing on the right side. Complete one burpee, then hop back over to the left of the kettlebell and do another burpee. Do for 60 seconds, alternating sides.
Rock the Boat + Leg PulseTones your obliques, hips, and thighs! Starting from boat pose, hold your kettlebell in both hands at chest level. Rotate the kettlebell across body from right to left. Once you have the basic movement down, pulse the feet out and in as you twist. Do for 60 seconds, alternating sides.
