The Home Beach Body Makeover with Angie Beis

Many of us complain that we have no time to hit the gym.. Or we have no money, or ..just many excuses.. Truth is, most of the time we get lazy..
Today, Angie is showing us a few exercises, mostly to define legs, glutes and core.. And all these exercises can be done at home.. Let's give in, and give it a try!

To begin with, in order to lose weight, we should try to maintain a healthy eating lifestyle. That can be done by eliminating sugar and flour from our daily caloric intake. Breads, alcohol, sugary beverage drinks, etc.
It should be a lifestyle change, not a temporary change.. And last but not least, we should dedicate ourselves to this change.

All exercises should be performed 4 times a week, and each week we can add more reps to routine.
Let's begin with a 10 min' warm up 
All exercises should be repeated once more, so we have a ten (10) minute overall warm up
