Three-Month Guide To Get Fit by Summer!

You want to look good in a bathing suit this summer, but you’re not quite sure what to do to get there, try this 3-month workout plan and you’ll definitely be ready to rock that suit!

If exercise intimidates you or you are very new to it, you can do these workouts at home without any equipment. Just follow the workout and progressions and you will feel stronger and more firm in just a few weeks. Start with the lower number of repetitions given on each exercise. The more advanced you are, or stronger you become, aim for the higher number of repetitions and include free weights such as dumbbells.

Instead of worrying about your “fat-burning zone” and heart rate, use the Rate of Perceived Exertion Scale (RPE): 1 to 10 where 1 is easy, can walk and talk and chew gum and 10 is gasping for air, can barely manage for more than a few seconds. You should be at a pace around 6 to 8. You should be breathing hard enough where you could still talk, but you’d rather not!


  • Rest! Everyone needs a day off!! Take a day off between strenuous workouts.
  • Sleep! You need sleep for a number of reasons. Aim for seven hours minimum a night.
  • Drink! Drink more water. Start by adding one cup and go from there.
  • Eat! Your metabolism requires food. Muscles need replenishment. Do NOT starve yourself.
