Fitness Made fun!


Love HandlesIt’s Lose Your Love Handles Week (which is kinda like shark week, but for your ABS!) and we’ve got a few fun things in store for you to help you celebrate.

In honor of Valentine’s Day, we thought it might be fun to put a little extra emphasis on one of our *ahem* “favorite” body parts — the love handles! Lots of people have them and most people want to get rid of them. Some people get an Orange County liposuction surgeon as an easy way to get rid of them while other people try to exercise the love handles away. There are a growing number of cosmetic procedures out there that can help you to lose your love handles. One of my friends recently tried a new treatment called lipo laser, and found that this helped her to get one step closer to her new body. To learn more about lipo laser treatment and what exactly this fat combatting procedure involves check out this useful guide from KnockYourHealth.

But what about exercises that can target your love handles? Well, why not join us for a week of core-centric workouts designed to help you work your waistline from every angle.

While you can’t spot reduce, you can target that lovely area with a specific plan of action that includes (first and foremost) a healthy diet made up of mostly unprocessed, whole foods, cardio and strength training.

Next, take a look at these 50 expert tips to help you get started with some easy ways to start losing your love handles – today.

And, finally, your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to complete all of the below workouts by the end of the week (be sure to leave us a comment on the video pages to check in during the week to let us know how it’s going!). Be sure to make this your own – feel free to switch up the order, double up days and/or add in more rest days if needed and of course always listen to your body during the workouts. If a workout doesn’t work for your current level, feel free to sub in another routine anytime.


MONDAY – 30-Minute HIIT Cardio and Core Workout

TUESDAY – 20-Minute Lower Abs Circuit + 14-Minute Plank Power Workout

WEDNESDAY – 20-Minute Belly Fat Blasting Cardio Abs Workout + 10-Minute Advanced Abs

THURSDAY – 10-Minute Cardio Strength Mash Up + 15-Minute Kettlebell Cardio Strength

FRIDAY – 26-Minute Cardio Pilates

SATURDAY – *NEW* 30-Minute Kickboxing Ballet Body Sculpt

SUNDAY – 30-Minute Yoga for Flat Abs


We also recommend walking as much as possible during the day (15-60 minutes). You can spread out your walks into shorter sessions. If walking outdoors doesn’t work for you, be sure to check out our walking DVDs for help squeezing in your extra daily steps.

    P.S. Can you remove my previous comment and use that one please?
    I got to know you through your walking videos. Around the end of the year, I visited your website and stumbled upon your workout programs and I decided to start the “Lose the love handles” program. I didn’t know you were so good with ST too! I cannot do your Advance Abs workout yet but, that’s one of my goal for 2017! And I don’t like ST but training with you is always a pleasure!
    Thank you very much for your comittment and your videos!

    Hi Jessica,
    I have been doing your workouts after my accupuncturist recommended you about 9 months ago. I have had several injuries in the last 3 years, and your workouts are so friendly to my body, I can’t thank you enough. I though I might not be able to work out again, and you have proven to me that I can do most of your workouts. I am so appreciative of your clear instructions, your focus on the whole body, and how to customize for ourselves to keep healthy and strong. I don’t see many men on here, but I want to let you know that you really challenge me to push and get a good burn. I have shard your workouts with SO many people, and I really want to sway THANK YOU!!!

    BTW*** the workout I was referring to was yesterday’s HIIT it hard cardio and core***

  • Jess February 10, 2015, 10:05 am

    Thanks for all your awesome workouts, Jessica. I have been a subscriber since last May 2015. I haven’t done this workout for a month or two. And, after finishing today – I can tell it’s been over a month. Lol! Just when you think you’re fitness is getting near it’s peak, it’s great to go back and do a challenging workout you have not completed in a while. I was really feeling this and totally sweaty, but feeling awesome afterward. The variety you offer keeps me coming back for more. Thanks, Jessica! 😉

    I did the HIIT workout ….tough but it goes by so quick. I love all the pointers you give, really helps with correct form and you feel it. Thanks!

    After finishing #FITIN15, I am following Lose Your Love Handles by keeping my workouts core centered. Though most of the workouts are on a level I’m not able to keep up with, I’m subbing in your other core routines and following the flow of the schedule as you suggested. Your workouts leave me feeling amazing!

    Hey Jessica,
    Thank you so much for the amazing workouts! For someone who gets easily bored with the regular gym routines, these are fun blessings in disguise.
    Looking forward to more exciting ones from you.
    Best wishes
    Much love

    Thanks so much for this, and for all of your wonderful streaming workouts!

    I’m an American expat living in Denmark and I’ve been working out at home with videos and DVDs for almost 15 years (since long before moving overseas). Home workouts haven’t really caught on here, so there’s not much available, and your online workouts have been a lifesaver.

    I even plugged you on my blog 🙂

    • Jessica Smith February 8, 2015, 12:31 pm

      Thanks Sage! So glad we could be workout partners all the way in Denmark 🙂 Let’s keep moving together!

    Another great workout (the new kickboxing ballet body sculpt combination). Just love your workouts, sets me up for the day and think the plug and play weekly playlist is such a good idea. Keep up the good work.
