Did you see my post yesterday about this brand new workout challenge that I am inviting you to? If you missed it, click here to read it.
So, how should we workout as women?
A woman’s workout should consist of leg raises, biceps curls with soup cans, and triceps kickbacks with water bottles.
Can you believe that silliness?

Neither can I, but that is what passes for “professional fitness advice for women” these days.
I could see this info being accepted in the 1950’s (maybe?), but now? Please…
Does anyone really believe that biceps curls with water bottles is going to prepare women to carry their children to bed, a bag of heavy groceries in from the car, or swing a sledgehammer during home renovations?
No way. You need real-world workouts and fat loss advice. Not fluff.
Am I the only one that finds those types of recommendations disrespectful to the physical capabilities of women? You’d think that Linda Hamilton’s chin-up scene in Terminator 2 would have turned the tide of female fitness, or perhaps Demi Moore’s GI Jane.

Women get fit fast at almost any age with the right workout. One workout that will get you results fast is ‘Turbulence Training’ and this is the workout I have chosen to follow for the next 3 months.
Today, I want to share the story of a classic “supermom”, you know the mom with 3 active kids that has to drive them everywhere, eat on the run, and still find room for workouts. Her name is Brandy Kirton, and she’ll show you how real women train, eat, and find the time to do it all with proper planning.
CB: Brandy, tell us about your past exercise and nutrition experiences. At what point did you find out about Turbulence Training and what persuaded you to start using it?
I started working out back on high school. I’m 30 now.
I became a personal trainer for a few years in my early 20’s. So I learned a lot about nutrition and weight training. I have been in great shape and not so great shape in the last 10 years. I think I found Turbulence Training just surfing the web and decided to give it a try. I was desperate to lose weight after my 3rd kid.
CB: And how was this a change from what you had done in the past?
I was doing 30 minutes of cardio and then lifted for 30 mins 3 to 4 times a week. That was if I actually could make time.
I would not work out if I knew I couldn’t get it all in. I would think, “What’s the point of 20 mins?”.
CB: What kind of results have you achieved with Turbulence Training? And is there anything else, besides the results, you love about the Turbulence Training programs?
I love how it changes every month so I never get bored. I also love that I have no excuse about not having time to fit it in.
My results have been great. I am getting toned up and consistently losing inches. I also have a lot more energy.
CB: Do you workout at home or in a gym?
I have to work out at home. No time to get to a gym.
CB: Has Turbulence Training had a positive impact on your lifestyle?
BK: Turbulence Training has made a huge impact on me. I don’t feel like it takes up my whole day or get bored of the same thing day in and day out.
I feel strong and love the inspirational emails. It helps me stay motivated.
I work full time, have three kids 9, 5, and 11 months, and a husband. My older two kids play every sports so there really is no extra time.
I have to get up at 5:30 to work out before they wake up but its worth it. I feel great after I am done and no matter what happens that day I have already got my workout in which feels great.
CB: Do you have any social support? If so, how has this helped you?
My mom comes over in the mornings to work out with me. I need that accountability so that I don’t sleep instead. It’s hard to get up but I always feel so much better when I do.
CB: What are your daily obstacles and temptations that you have to avoid with respect to nutrition and training? And what strategies do you use?
With all the practices, games and running around I have to do it’s hard not to grab McDonald’s with the kids.
I try to either bring food with me or wait until I get home. If I have to eat out I do try and find grilled chicken or subway.
CB: How do you plan your nutrition?
I have to go shopping on Sunday to stock up on all my healthy food. Otherwise I will eat whatever I can find which usually is not good for me.
CB: Thanks Brandy, keep up the great work.
The message is clear. Plan, prepare, commit, and be consistent. Brandy didn’t use any magic pills or potions to succeed, she simply found a great workout plan, and did what she had to do.
As a supermom, Brandy practically has to create time out of thin air in order to do her workout, but again, she knows what she has to do and she does it. She’s committed. She has social support. She knows the correct options for eating on the run.
She has made the effort to plan for the obstacles (lack of time, workout motivation) that we all come across. And by doing that, she’s cleared a simple path to success.
And she doesn’t waste time in the gym with slow, boring cardio workouts. Instead, she sculpts her body in half the time with the Turbulence Training workouts.
Katherine ‘working out is fun again’ Kyle
p.s. who else wants to lose the baby fat & have her best body since high-school?
“Thanks, Craig, for the best body I’ve had since high school (20 years). I have an 11-month old daughter, and long-distance running didn’t decrease my post-partum fat much at all. After 6 weeks I’ve gone down one size in jeans (and actually they’re too baggy now, too) and have the lowest body fat percentage than I had before the baby, and during years of marathon training. What appeals so much to me (besides the tighter body!) is that I can finish my workout in under 25 minutes, and get back to my family. It’s effective and efficient; remarkably impressive. Thank you!!!!!”
“Hi Craig – First, I LOVE your program. In just under two weeks, I have already started seeing definition – that has been my goal for as long as I have been working out (a LONG time)Keep up the GREAT work, and thanks!”

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
