I have had AngieFitnessTV workouts on my To Do list for a very long time. But it wasn’t until I got a rebounder that I was finally motivated to do one. A suggestion from a reader (thanks rcc90!) gave me the little nudge I needed. I really don’t know a lot about Angie except she has a ton of free YouTube workouts. Shelter in place and working from home coincided with me getting a rebounder. I haven’t been rebounding for long but I already love it so much that it’s really all I want to do anymore. I’ve sampled a few YouTube rebounder workouts and haven’t really been impressed with any of them until I did Angie’s. I was so pleased to see she lots of rebounder workouts and they are organized into several playlists. I enjoyed this one so much I plan to try some more of her rebounder workouts.
This is a pure cardio workout. It is actually 18 minutes not 15 minutes but that is because Angie includes a cool down at the end. This was a bonus for me. I love it when trainers take the time to cool down and/or stretch the home exerciser out. The actual cardio portion is 15 minutes. The music was very good. Angie is a very personable trainer. All of the exercises done in this short workout are basic, easy to perform exercises but Angie shows even easier versions if it is too difficult for you. I used this workout as little something extra today. I had already worked out this morning plus I took multiple mini fitness breaks in the course of my day (I do love working from home). When my work day was done, I wanted a little something more. This was absolutely perfect. It was fun and it energized me. A great way to end my day before I started winding down for the evening. And to be perfectly honest, a big part of how much I enjoyed this workout probably had a lot to do with the music. Great music–it really drove the workout for me. I felt compelled to hop in time with the beat and this was uplifting and fun.
