Take It Indoors

As the weather gets chilly outside, it's time to make your indoor workouts even more fun. The Studio Tone It Up fitness app offers a variety of workout classes (boxing, barre, yoga, HIIT and much more!) that you can take every hour on the hour. You can do these workouts anywhere — your living room, dorm room, hotel room — whatever works best for you. And you can even connect with other girls from around the world before and after class for extra motivation.

Challenge Yourself

This season, take the opportunity to challenge yourself and set some new goals. Switch up your strength-training workout by lifting heavier weights. Our favorite way to challenge ourselves with weights is with drop sets — one of the most efficient ways to form lean muscle. The concept is simple: Start out with heavy weights, and as you start to fatigue, drop down to a lighter set of weights and complete your reps. This training technique causes your body to recruit more muscle fibers, which in turn forms beautiful lean muscle.

Refresh Your Workout Gear

Is there anything more motivating than a cute new workout outfit? We love donating old workout clothes and buying a couple of new outfits to keep things exciting. Fall is also a great time to grab new workout gear to keep your indoor workouts challenging. We have a variety of workout gear over at Tone It Up.

Spice Up Your Post-Workout Smoothie

Replenishing your body with protein is essential after your workout. Protein will boost your metabolism and help create that beautiful, lean muscle. Try swapping your usual protein smoothie for something more festive and seasonal. Right now we're obsessed with this Pumpkin Spice Latte Smoothie.
