Fitness Made fun!

Join Our 28-Day January Jump Start Challenge!

Start the New Year off STRONG with us —
Join Our 28 Day January Jump Start!

Get 2019 started off on the right foot — join us for a one mile walk of motivation right now!

Our mission for this challenge? Consistency and clarity! There’s no need to beat yourself up for “holiday eating” or to try to fit in a year’s worth of workout efforts into one month! We want to help you get back into the habit of regular exercise (or recharge your existing program!) without making things overly complicated or extreme.

The number one key to seeing (and keeping!) results is CONSISTENCY! 

We want you to keep your routine clear and simple so that it’s easy for you to stick with a hassle free plan not only for this month, but all year long. Our main goal is to help you find ways to fit in (and, hopefully, enjoy) exercise 365 days a year, not just during resolution season. 

If that sounds good to you, we’d love to have you join us for this 28-day jump start plan! You can follow along using just our FREE YouTube vids (thanks for remembering to SUBSCRIBE to our channel!) and/or with our DVD/digital programs, whatever fits your needs and preferences best. We’ve made suggestions for both, so please feel free to mix and match as you see fit.

And, in addition to your daily “workout,” don’t forget your daily dose of Vitamin W — WALKING!

Goal: Aim for 10,000 steps (or more) daily 

If you are starting out well below this number, please add in more steps gradually so you don’t overdo it! 

Already at 10K a day? Feel free to increase your steps and/or work on maintaining your daily goal!

Choose from a variety of our FREE 1-Mile Walk n Talk sessions or Walking Workouts here on our YouTube channel, and/or use some of our DVD/digital walks [all of our mileage DVDs make it easy to fit in your steps – 10,000 is the rough equivalent to 5 miles!] to reach your daily goal.

WHY Walk? Extra walking increases your daily activity level (which equates to less health-damaging sitting!) without you having to ‘exercise’ more. And, some research shows, it may help you manage stress and anxiety better. One study found that participants who walked 10,000 steps a day had lower levels of anxiety, depression, anger, fatigue, confusion and total mood distress scores.



QUESTIONS?

How do I make the plan work for me? [ie. What if a workout is too easy or too hard, too short or too long, for my current needs?]

We know that not every workout works for every body. The great news is we have a huge library of workout options available (which can sometimes make it hard to decide what to do!) that offer options to simplify or advance the moves, but the daily recommended workout is just that — a recommendation. Because we’re all working at different levels of fitness with various needs and preferences, we want you to ultimately decide what works best for you!  You can follow our weekly suggested schedules as a loose guide and sub in any of your favorite YouTube videos, DVD or digital workout programs. 

Too hard? If you are new to exercise or starting back up after a long hiatus, remember to listen to your body and go at your own pace. You may want to sub in one of our more beginner friendly routines any day you find the recommended one a bit too much. Prefer no floor work? Feel free to choose from our virtually floor work free “Walk On” series options [we also have a lot of floor work free or standing only YouTube video options as well]. Remember that little changes can make a big difference, so even you need to begin with a 10-15 minute session each day [our 1-Mile Walk and Talk sessions can be a great option!] and build from there, stay focused on doing the best you can with what you have!

Too easy? If you have been keeping up with your workouts and going strong all holiday season long, feel free to amp things up by using our advanced modification options, increasing your weights during strength training, or, even adding on additional workout time if that feels right for you. And, please keep in mind that there are several days a week that purposely have you training in your endurance zone, a more moderate intensity that, while it may feel ‘easier,’ still offers big health benefits.

What if I miss a day (or week)?

No big deal! Simply pick up where you left off — there’s no need to start over or feel guilty for not adhering exactly to the schedule [this is NOT an all or nothing program!]. Stay flexible and get back at it as soon as you can. Please remember consistency is key, and our motto is SOMETHING IS ALWAYS BETTER THAN NOTHING, so just do the best you can with what you have, every day. It’s the little daily steps that add up to big lasting results.

The bottom line is that we are all about you making this plan work for YOU, without a lot of muss or fuss!


What’s next after these 28 days are over?

You may want to join us for one of our complete programs, try our updated master rotation calendars, or put together your own personal plan using our plug & play weekly suggestions here.  We’re also working on our February Fusion Plan too, if you’d like to continue on with us after this schedule is over.

You. Got. This!

What do I need to do to participate?

All you need to do is follow along our suggested schedules (making adjustments as needed, of course). We also recommend inviting a friend (or two) to join you and/or checking in with the rest of our community so that we can all help cheer each other on and offer support along the way! Feel free to check in with us and the rest of our community on social media (be sure to tag @JESSICASMITHV) — we’re all in this together!

Finally, let’s remember that the New Year isn’t about losing 10 pounds in one month, or trying to undo a year’s worth of unhealthy habits overnight — if we can resolve to make this year one that is dedicated to your health and well-being, there’s no need to worry about what the scale says (after all, it can’t tell you how fit or healthy you are!).
 
Let’s make 2019 your healthiest, happiest year yet!

    Jessica,

    You are a blessing. You give me structure to my day. As soon as I get from work I do whatever is listed for the day. Just completed January and so joyous to find Fusion February is ready and waiting for me. Thank you so much for taking the time to make these work outs available for those of us who don’t have the extra budget to pay for a gym or other packages. The strangest thing though I have noticed is that I realised my jaw aches when I have finished your work outs and I realised that it is because I’ve been smiling while I’ve be doing them – stange but true – thank you agsin Jessica xx

    I just finished Day 27 of this 28 Day Challenge. Jessica, I have enjoyed this immensely, and I feel so much stronger and fit in just these 4 short weeks. What a blessing!

    I would like to continue to move forward with an organized fitness plan like the one entailed in this 28 Day Challenge. I considered just repeating this Challenge, but with heavier weights and/or increased effort, but if you have suggestions or other plans available, then I would like to condor those first.

    Thanks again for all the hard work you put into these workouts! And I love Peanut’s shenanigans, too.

    I am loving this challenge! I really needed to get back to working out and I get bored fast, so, having a new workout every day is really keeping me motivated. I love that everything is planned out for me and all I have to do is follow the schedule. Thank you so much Jessica-you are awesome! I feel like I’m working out with a friend every day!

    I just started with Week 1 of the January Challenge today. I just finished the 6 week Walk Strong program. I’m so excited to be starting a new challenge! I do so much better with challenges and programs. I know exactly which exercise to do and on what day. Thanks Jessica for the great programs. Love them!

    Really enjoying the challenge. I love the variety and choices of routines each day. It is great we get to choose a YouTube or professionally produced routine and it is so good to be able to mix and match. It has been a joy so far to wake up and do my early morning workout each day. The simplicity of Strength, Cardio (Steps) and flexibility works for me big time. Thanks Jessica! I am about half way through and am seeing as well as feeling the benefits. I might possibly repeat the rotation in February too💪✅✅

    I started working out at home in my late teens (40 years ago!) with Jane Fonda, and have followed many instructors over these decades (I even taught for a few years in the 80’s). I have to tell you that you are by far, my very favorite! You are SUCH a good instructor and motivator!! I have told everyone of my friends about you:)
    I want you to know that I love this New Year program and I thank you for all the work you do to help so many keep both body and mind fit!

For me, I do best when I have a calendar/schedule to follow, and I especially appreciate your providing both YouTube videos and comparable DVD workouts! I’ve purchased many of your DVDs and love them, but don’t have them all yet so the YouTube list is wonderful. Thank you for all you do to keep us inspired to exercise and be our best! Happy New Year!

    I’ll try it out! Got to know you when I was searching for lower body workout with bad knee because of an injury and yours was favorite. Usually I spread my workouts in one day lower, next upper and then a spinning day, because my muscles need a few days to recover from soreness😕.
    In your schedule the strength days are total body, I’ll see if that works for me. I would like to keep my spinning lessons too, so I will have to wave them in somewhere, any suggestions?
    I also love your fusion workouts. You see, I’ve to much to choose from😄

I’m from and live in Costa Rica and your workouts have kept me fit and motivated even during my 2 pregnancies. They always feel easy to do, but I keep seeing great results, and that’s why I keep coming back for more.

    I may give this January challenge a try, starting tomorrow. I will probably have to sub many of the workouts for more beginner workouts, because that is, unfortunately, where I’m at right now. I’ve already got a start on changing that, though, and consistent workouts for the next 28 days might set my workout habit in stone for the rest of the year. Thanks.

    I saw this challenge on Facebook. I’m a senior and would like to try it. I did look over the first few youTube videos, and I’m already doubting I will be able to do everything for the first day of the challenge. But I will try to do what I can. Maybe someday you can come up with a senior 30 day challenge. Thank you for all the YouTube videos.

    Hi Jessica! I’m interested in the new Get Strong DVD, but Amazon says it’s unavailable. Any idea when it will be available again? Thanks for all that you do, and happy new year!

    Great! I lost 8kg last 4 months but got somehow off my regular sports routine. This will put me back on track. Greetings from one of your German fans!

    Dear Jessica,
    I have a question about walking. If I understand correctly, you recommend walking 5 miles each day in addition to these workouts, yes? So, my questions are:

    1. How does it work on a day like Day 23? Do I walk 9 miles in total?
    2. Can/should I do the walking and then one the these workouts right afterwards for one long session?

    Grateful for your answer.

      Great question Maria! No need to add in extra steps on walking days — count those towards your daily total. Hope that helps clarify 🙂
