About Me

side kickIf you are looking for some impressive biography- you are not going to find it here. I’m just a regular person who loves to work out! I’m an athlete and martial artist. I’ve been training and competing in  traditional Japanese Karate for a long time.  A few months ago my friend called me a “workout maniac”.  She’s probably right; Exercising is my top priority! I
do it almost every day because it makes me feel and look better. In addition to karate, I have some experience in Muay Thai and Kickboxing.

 

I have created this blog to help me monitoring my own progress, and motivate to “push harder”!  Feel free to  use my workouts as guidelines and exercise at your home. There is no need to invest money on expensive equipment and spend long hours at the gym to get into the best shape of your life.  Really. You need to be inspired,  motivated and see yourself in a bright light everyday!

    Hi. Nice to meet you.
    I came across your video yesterday which tutors in how to skip rope efficiently. I thought that you were good teacher. So, I typed your blog’s address – fitappy.wordpress.com – on the Internet.
    I found that your blog was great. I have just watched ‘Dynamic Flexibility Training ★ Stretching + Warm up’

  10. Kim Yoo-Ra says:

    and ‘W6 abs’. It was what I have been looking for. And today you have updated ‘HIIT’. I will watch this video, too.
    Maybe, you can’t understand this message. Maybe, you thought that my literary style is little bit strange. But, please do not mistake me for suspicious girl. My mother language is not English. I couldn’t help but writing in a poor style.
    I became rounded from November. I want to be in good shape and be healthy like you. I’

    Tanks the blog is the best
    Have a nice day

  13. Heeeey , this is the best blog ever,, I was searching for excercises for begginers like I am , and I ran into your videos on youtube, LOVED them, you really make it look easy and not complicated.
    I’m changing my lifestyle because recently I started eating too much, without working out at all, You gave me inspiration and help, thanx a lot !!!
    but I want to ask how often should I do excercises ,and what is better : to excersise before or after breakfast ?!?!?
    Thank you !

    • Depends on a few things. If you are REALLY out of shape, you can start by exercising 3 times a week (or every other day) and later increase it to 5 days. Aim for cardio 3 times a week (if you can 15-20 min. in the beginning). You can exercise on an empty stomach if your exercises aren’t too intense, otherwise have something light about 30 min. before your workout. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G3WoCaNbvzk

  21. sea pea says:

    Hey this is an awesome blog. Its simple, easy and from a normal person. No junk; no selling; no ads; i love it and it will be my favorite.

  22. Amaia says:

    Hi 🙂
    True, your blog is just awesome! I love it :DD It’s already the first one in my favourites.
    By the way, could you help me with my workout? I’ve got big thighs in comparison to my upper body, and all the fat just gets stuck in my legs. Could you tell me a really effective workout to burn specially leg fat? I know I can’t change my body-type, but anyway, I’d like my legs to look slim or at least slimmer.
    Thanks a lot! 😀

    • From what you described, it looks like you have to do cardio workouts. You have fat in your thighs because your body accumulates it that area 😦 Do cardio 3-4 times a week for 20-30 minutes. Healthy eating will help too. Allow at least 2-3 weeks to see how your body will respond selected exercises. Also, regular lower body training (1-2 a week) won’t hurt 😉 Good luck!

  23. Amaia says:

    Thanks a lot! Yeah, you’re right all the fat goes to that damn area! :S
    I’ll go for cardio, body training and will keep with my diet, which I think is quite healthy.
    I’ve been told the best cardio type is HIT, a much more effective fat burner than low intensity cardio. I love swimming, is there any exercise more acqurate to burn lower body fat though?
    By the way, what do you exactly mean by “selected exercises”? Thanks again, and congratulations, I think it’s just great there is people like you who invest their time and effort helping people selfessly!! 😀

  24. I’ve been using your workouts and I am loving them. I was involved In Muay Thai and Kickboxing myself for years and recently moved to Northern Canada were I have to be creative about my workouts. Sometimes it’s just really nice to have someone else tell you what to do. Thanks so much for the extra push. You are AWESOME!

  25. Sandhya says:

    hi,

    your blog is really very useful, for a long time i had been searching for a site that could give me a good workout routine at home and i found that in your blog. your workouts are really good and u make them look easy and motivational.keep posting new workouts and i would love to do them at home.

    i have a question, Iam not obese or too fat, but my things and lower back are heavy, and that looks too odd. could you tell me what is the best way to loose fat from things and butt.

    thanks

    I came across your videos on youtube and they are awesome! your blog is just as great (and i’m usually not one to really pay attention to blogs!) just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for being so relatable, it’s too often you see victorias secret looking models in workout posts which deter us all because it seems unrealistic and unachievable! I am going to fiji in a month and so I am embarking on your 4 week bikini body plan! wish me luck! 🙂

  33. Nathalie says:

    Bonjour from Montreal, Quebec, Canada!!

    You are doing an amazing job! I am hooked now! I love your workouts and have to say that you are most probably the best trainer I had the chance to have – too bad you are so far, I would have one-on-one sessions with you! But, fortunatelly, you post your videos. I have watch them all and made myself a schedule trying to mix and match some of them… Ok, I have only started this morning, now my challenge is to keep it up and follow the schedule I have prepared.

    My goal is to loose 15 pounds. I am 42, 5″2 and 130 pounds. I started gaining weight 10 years ago when I quit smoking, back then, I was 110lbs but also 10 years younger 😉

    My biggest problem is motivation. This is why I decided to write a comment. I feel so motivated by your blog that I felt I needed to let you know so you don’t stop it!!

    Keep on the good work and I’ll do the same 🙂

    Thank you!!

    • thanks for visiting 🙂
      MOTIVATION..oh….we all need it!!! Just remember WHY you do this! it should help you get ready for your next workout 😉 Always stay positive and believe you can do it!

      • Nathalie says:

        Hey there! Just want to give you an update about my workout this morning… I did your HIIT workout and did it for 30 minutes + warm up and cool down. I ran\walked for 2.96 miles which for me is very good.

        Then, I did your general workout, did 2 rounds but was not able to do the side plank sets on the second round 😦

        I feel soooo good now! Very motivated and proud of my accomplishment!! Now, let’s hope I can keep it up 🙂

        Take care!

  38. Michael says:

    I am struggling trying to learn how to jump rope for fitness and cardio. I never learned as a kid and now as a grown up I am trying to do it and it is extremely difficult. I can do 1 jump and that isn’t even 100% of the time. I assume it is my timing but I don’t know how to fix that.

  39. Inka says:

    Thank you for doing what you do. I’m doing a6 with you and started doing your other workouts. My aim is to lose all the unwanted flab by the time I turn 30 🙂 (I’ve got over a year and about 3 stones to get rid of). I’m only on day 5 and already see some effects! It really works!
    Love your smiley face and positive attitude

  43. Vanessa says:

    I live in Michigan and the weather right now isn’t very conducive to my summer routine. I like to run and bike outside, so when winter hits I fall out of shape and find myself eating emotionally. Your videos are great because I do them every morning in my living room. I don’t have to skip workouts because the weather is bad. Now I can be ready for summer. Thanks so much for your videos. They really help motivate me to work out every day.

    to have a motivational kick in the butt from a beautiful and genuine woman.

    some variety.

  62. Hi Miss Agnieszka……

  63. Madam no offense but I have one more question:
    Why does your belly button change shapes when you do your jump rope exercise?
    I watched this in your opening jump rope tutorial…

  64. If you felt anguished about the comment above,i am sorry,madam..
    however could you pl give your facebook account name,so that i could be your student??

    Hence i wanted your facebook account name or any other account you have…
    And the question I asked you in the above posts is of no bad intentions..
    I just wanted to gain more knowledge,that’s all.I believe you can help me…

    P.S:Sorry for the long post….

  66. abrakadabra95 says:

    Hi!:) I really like your videos, and you ‘re so motivating anyway!i’ m doing W6 ABs, it ‘ s so great. I’ ve a question, what you think about exercising, doing cardio without shoes? I prefer working out in the house, with the screen, and i can’ t wear trainers here, is it harmful? what can be the effects?

  67. Angela Kay says:

    I’m a 50 yr old woman recovering from cancer that has affected the ligaments and muscles in my pelvic area, I have also lost a lot of weight too, close on to 50lbs in 5 months.
    I have been left with a flabby tum as the loss has been rapid, I’d like to start exercising but was starting to feel miserable because I just can’t do crunches etc while lying down. I have a lot of pain and stiffness in hips and thighs due to my treatment and this kind of limits how I exercise, fatigue too.
    I purchased a gym ball a few weeks back but wasn’t too sure how to use it and was getting a bit depressed by it all! I found your video last night and realised that this could be the way of moving forward, gentle but effective exercise that could help my flabby bits without causing me terrible pain. I tried it this morning, managed not to fall off the ball and although I need to practice, I could do it without pain AND I felt the pull of the muscles working!
    Thanks for your help 🙂

    Enjoying the pregnancy exercises, I have done the exercises everyday of pregnancy (aim not one who normally exercises), so thanks for the inspiration and relaxed, cheery approach you have!

  72. Catherine says:

    Wonderful! You are wonderful, your approach, purity, sincerity, simplicity, honesty, the range of coverage.
    This is absolutely the best health and exercise videos for women that’s out there!
    You prove that with your looks and attitude! You have a gorgeous body that every woman would desire! Proportional, lean, toned, fit and slim.
    I am emphasizing this, coz there’s tones of “women-coaches” being bulky or fat, not having any femininity in their shape. Nor even 10% of shape and tone that you do!
    Congrats! It’s not an easy task, takes a lot of sacrifices, and that’s for respect!
    Thank you so much for sharing it with us!
    You’re work is tremendous!
    I was desperately looking for a quality smart-workout for ladies, and now I finally found yours!
    Thanks!
