Try this fun 7-day at home workout plan to lose weight and get toned! This routine includes dance workouts, Pilates, barre, yoga and almost no equipment is needed.
Do you like working out? Don’t mean do you like the energy and the feeling of accomplishment after a workout. I mean the actual working out part. The WORK part.
I used to hate it. I would work out really hard for a couple of weeks, I would see some improvement in my physique and next thing I know, I’m skipping one workout. Then before I know it I go a month without ANY workout.
I realized I did this, because I actually HATED the workouts I did. I hated every part of them.
When you don’t enjoy something AT ALL – you’ll always find an excuse (or multiple excuses) not to do it.
Because you’re smarter than that and deep down you know you deserve better and can spend your time on something else more productive or enjoyable.
So what I’m saying is: If you want to lose weight and get toned, but can’t seem to stick to a workout routine, it might be because you don’t enjoy the exercises you do. This workout plan was a lot of fun for me, so if you’re looking for something new, give this a try – it’s only one week. And if you like it, keep doing it.
The Workout Plan + Benefits
You’ll be doing one “class” per day (I’m sorry, what?) for 25-45 minutes (mostly around 30min though).
For 6 days you’ll be switching between dance and pilates/barre workouts. So one day you burn fat and have fun (dance), the next day you work on toning your muscles and improving your posture (pilates/barre). Then on the 7th day you’ll do yoga.
This plan is not for complete beginners, but I’ve got one for complete beginners here, so make sure to check it out if this one is too challenging for you!
- Day 1: Cardio
- Day 2: Pilates
- Day 3: Dance Workout
- Day 4: Barre Workout
- Day 5: Cardio
- Day 6: Fast-Paced Pilates
- Day 7: Yoga Stretching Routine
For this workout plan you’ll need:
- yoga or workout mat: if don’t have one, you can get a high-quality super affordable yoga mat here.
- workout clothes that you feel comfortable in
- around 30 min a day
- connection to high-speed internet to play Youtube videos for around 30 min a day
- proper foot wear for the dance workouts
Please consult with your doctor, before starting this or any other exercise regimen!
7-Day Workout Plan To Lose Weight At Home
Body by Simone Dance Cardio Workout by Sweaty Betty. I have done this several times already and it’s very intense, but also a lot of fun. Not gonna lie, it’s not a classic dance workout, it includes some dance workout moves, but also some arm, butt and abs training too.
Abs-, Butt-, and Arm-Tightening Workout by Popsugar Fitness
Tried this workout for the first time yesterday and it was awesome. At times a little too painful (in a good way), but I stretched afterward and wasn’t sore today.
30 Minutes Latin Dance Workout by Popsugar Fitness
I’ve done this dance workout a couple of times already and I still look like something’s SERIOUSLY wrong with me, but I really enjoy it. It’s high-intensity, but you won’t notice this a lot, because time just flies.
16-Minute Barre Upper Body Workout by Barre Fitness
This barre class is just 16-minute long, but it’s such a good arm and upper body workout! Perfect if you want to improve your posture and strengthen your neck and shoulder muscles. I have a slight knee injury, so I had to modify some of the plie moves last time.
Repeat 2x Burn to the Beat Dance Intervals: Reggaeton Dance Workout by BeFit
This dance workout is intense and a lot of fun.
30-Minute Fast-Paced Pilates Workout by Popsugar Fitness
This is a fast-paced pilates workout and it’s VERY challenging in the best way possible. The butt exercises really made me feel weak and sorry for myself. And I cried for a couple of minutes, glad nobody saw. I put this pilates routine intentionally for the end of the week, just before the stretching day.
30 Minute Flexibility & Deep Stretch Workout by YogaTX
This yoga stretching routine is a great way to relax and recover, so you can do it all again the next week.
