Are you ready to energize your exercise routine? I definitely need an extra push to get me through the Halloween candy, Thanksgiving turkey and Christmas cookie cravings. So, I was super excited when Family Christian sent me two new CDs to get my heart-pumping. Amy Grant is back with her old school Heart in Motion and has transformed it into In Motion The Remixes album, and Mandisa has compiled her favorites into the Get Up Remix album. I’ve been listening to In Motion and Get Up on the treadmill, the trail and in the weight room. The fast-moving beat will energize your workout plus the lyrics are encouraging. These albums will have you pushing harder, lifting heavier and smiling longer!

I’ve created a mini workout perfect for a cold, rainy day or when you have a sick child at home, but you still need to exercise. I’ve paired the exercise routines with some songs from the In Motion and Get Up Albums.

I like to do a full-body workout on my short gym days or when my time is limited. This workout will get you sweating in no time plus you’ll burn some calories in the process.

Let’s start with some warm-up exercises and pair it with Amy Grant’s Mega Mix.

      You’ll love the new In Motion album. It’s similar to the Heart In Motion version, but with more of a dance mix theme to it. Thanks for commenting.
