Hi there - Natalie Jill here!


I absolutely love the idea of
making small positive changes
each week along a fitness and
nutrition journey, and that
includes adding new and
interesting exercises into my
regular routine.
Every week Ive provided new
ideas for at-home toning and
strengthening moves, and now
Ive compiled them into a single
book that will not only take you
through step-by-step instructions,
but will also provide you with
some set routines so that you
dont have to spend a whole lot of time figuring out which moves to do and when.
Youll notice the pictures have all been taken at my home in a normal environment.
No touch-ups, but certainly some guest appearances from my fabulous daughter
Penelope and my sweet dog Bean.
Keep in mind that I want you to take into account YOUR individual fitness level,
YOUR own range of motion, and YOUR own starting abilities. Modify where you
need to make changes, and challenge yourself by not only adding repetitions, but
by adding resistance bands or weights where you feel its appropriate.
The exercises listed are complete in their descriptions, and are meant for you to
pick and choose from. Ive taken the liberty of categorizing them as Beginner
(GREEN), Intermediate (ORANGE), and Advanced (PURPLE) but dont let those
labels define your workout. Ive provided three total body blaster routines so that

you dont even have to think about what you should do, and Ive provided you with
a way to track your progress in 4-week increments. No excuses start today! If you
dont have hand weights, use soup cans! If you need an exercise mat but dont have
one, use a towel! The sooner you establish your baseline and determine what it will
take to accomplish your goals, the sooner youll be on your way to reaching them!
I hope this helps to motivate you and to create your own at-home training studio
(just like mine!) where you can achieve the fitness goals youve set for yourself.
Know that Im putting myself through the same motions, and I know they work.
And remember, things dont just happen, YOU MAKE THEM HAPPEN!!!
Excuses or Solutions...YOU Decide!
