What Is Workouts To Go?

Designed for the person whose schedule does not allow you to meet with a trainer on a regular basis, who travels a lot, who prefers to work out on their own, or who can not afford to work with a trainer in a one-on-one setting. These do-on-your-own workouts are for you to follow at your home with dumbbells or resistance bands, or at a gym. They are meant to complement Cross Training Circuits aka Boot Camp, Metabolic Explosion Training class, Pumping Iron, Personal Training, High Intensity Interval Training with Resistance, or a separate cardio program.

Following a structured exercise program will help you with:

  • Weight Loss
  • More Energy
  • Improved Self-esteem
  • Increased Strength
  • More Endurance
  • Improved Balance and Mobility
  • Greater Flexibility
  • Improving Your Overall Health!

What Should I Expect?

These programs are available as a total body workout, split in to an upper body and a lower body workout, a core workout, or a weekly split (i.e. chest and arms, back, legs, and shoulders). Each workout lasts up to an hour. It is suggested that you follow each for 4 weeks and then start on a new one.

You will need a full set of dumbbells, a full set of resistance bands, or access to a full gym. You can purchase a set of bands and have them delivered to your door. This is often the most economical, and they are easy to travel with, whether you are out of town for work or for pleasure.

What Do I Need To Know Ahead Of Time?

Wear appropriate and comfortable clothes and shoes. Cross-trainers are suggested.

When Are Classes Held?

With this program, you are able to schedule your workouts on the days and times that fit best with your schedule. Weekly follow-ups with a trainer are also available.

How Much Does It Cost?

Costs vary depending on the number of different workouts you perform each week. Contact me to create an individualized program for you.

I  asked for a WTG because I wanted to start incorporating strength training into my workout routine but wasn't really sure how to figure out the details like whether to lift heavy weight with low reps or lighter weight with higher reps, how to structure the workout (total body vs splits), etc. After talking with Sharon, we opted for an upper body / lower body split.  Right now I'm trying to do each once a week, along with one day of Boot Camp (aka CTC) and one day of MET class. I liked that we discussed my goals, what kind of equipment I wanted to use, and that the workouts contained some exercises that were new to me.  Sharon demonstrated the exercises to make sure I knew the proper form for each since I would be performing these on my own. I recommend WTGs to anyone who wants or needs a little bit of guidance in their "out of studio" workouts.  With the ability to customize it, in terms of your goals and equipment, you really can't go wrong.

My wife and I asked for WTGs to follow while we were on a cruise. It was helpful to have a plan. Over a 10 day vacation, I used it 3 times (2 times upper, 1 time lower), and Rosi 2 times. I liked that it gave us a goal of what to complete each time.

— Ed S.

The WTGs are easy-to-follow work outs that can be completed anywhere.  The bands are very compact, and they are easy to travel with.  This is a good solution for someone with limited time.  

— Amy G.

I started with a Core Workout To Go program because I was traveling for work and could not take regular classes. I feel a nice soreness each time I use my workout, and my clothes are fitting better. These WTGs are easy to take with you and you can do them at any time of the day or night.

After taking two sessions of Core Strength I wanted to continue class but because of my schedule I could no longer do it so I asked Sharon for a Core Workout To Go.  I’m so glad that I did this!!  I love the challenge the workout gives me, and because of its flexibility, I’ve been able to actually work out more.  Instead of just going to class one time a week, I’ve been able to complete the work out 2-3 times a week.  As a result, I’ve reached one of my goals – 10 V-ups in a row on a regular basis.  In the past I was lucky to get 5 or 6 in a row. I would recommend a WTG to anyone that has a busy schedule or doesn't think that they have time to exercise. Even if you can’t fit a complete workout in every time, you can at least find 15-20 minutes to do some of the Workout to Go.

— Tamara

I began Workouts To Go because I could no longer fit Core Strength class into my schedule. I've been doing WTG for a couple of weeks and I use it at home, and also while traveling for long weekends. I have not used resistance bands, but I use dumbbells for some of my exercises. I work harder than I expected...which I love. It's a quality workout and worth the time to sneak to the basement for a half hour and sweat! The best thing about WTG is the flexibility.

— Beth M.

Since beginning Workouts To Go, I have more energy and I feel more confident with myself. I am definitely losing inches. WTGs are perfect for those who are more comfortable working out at home, or someone looking for workouts that challenge you. It was also perfect for vacation! I did it every other day. I took my weights with me and worked out on the beach! Very convenient and effective! Ican't wait for my next set of WTGs.

— Tara H.

When my schedule changed this Spring, I had to drop one of my twice weekly Cross Training Circuit classes and I needed to fill in that gap. A Workout To Go was perfect because it is convenient to do when my time is limited.  I had felt like my upper body was weaker than the rest of my body, and a upper body WTG was a great place to start.  My goal is to be able to do 15 regular push ups with great form. The resistance band kit Sharon recommended is awesome.  There is such a variety of exercises you can do with them at home or traveling.

— Shelley L.

I asked for a full set of Workouts To Go - total body, upper body, and lower body - because I was going to miss quite a few classes and while it would be very easy to just skip exercising, I didn't want to get out of the habit of working out. I've worked hard over the past year and I don't want to undo that. I know myself well enough to know that without WTG, I would just put off seriously working out. WTG is the best way to stay on track. I recommend these to others because if you are committed to working out, you don't want to go backwards. This is a great alternative those times you cannot get to your regular classes.

Since I received my Total Body Workout To Go, I feel confident that when I go to the gym I know what I am doing! I would recommend these to others because it definitely gives you a great workout, hitting the entire body.

— Julie S.

I did the upper body Workout To Go this morning and it was great, definitely something I wouldn't have done on my own. The lower body workout is next.

— Paul K.

Workouts To Go are an easy way to add more workouts into your routine.

— Kristi S.

Thank you so much for putting my Workouts To Go together. I've had a long week and I had zero desire to workout  today but knowing I had a plan made it easier to get my rear end in gear. The upper body workout was just what I needed. I feel great tonight!

— Julie M.

I asked for two Workouts To Go programs. The first was a total body work out for when I go on vacation or am not able to make it to class. I also ordered the package of resistance bands Sharon suggested to go along with the workout!! I then asked for a core program because even though I do some core exercises while working out, I wanted a complete core workout that I can do at home a few days a week or incorporate into a weekly workout while on vacation!

I would highly recommend a WTG to others because the information you need is RIGHT THERE, the only thing you have to do is the workout.  It is a great workout tool for those who may not be able to get out during a snow storm or who may have a conflict with the class they planned on attending. Instead, you have a WTG - just do it!!!  It can't get any easier than that.  I really REALLY like the core workout and I look forward to getting the next one in another few weeks.

— Sue

Since I began the upper body and lower body Workouts To Go programs, I feel humbled. lol I thought I was stronger than I really was until Sharon once again kicked my butt with these workouts! I am no doubt going to be stronger and healthier as I incorporate these programs into my marathon training. I recommend WTG to others because they are easy to use and follow, from beginner to advanced, and from home gym to big box gym equipment.

— Agatha

Since beginning these Workouts To Go programs, I feel like I have a better understanding of how to workout.

I wanted to join Sharon’s Core Strength Class but couldn’t figure out how to fit it into my schedule.  Instead I asked Sharon to create a core Workout to Go.  I love the ease of having a plan and fitting into my schedule.  Most of all, I’m thrilled to know that I’m still getting a good workout even if it’s at my home.

— Kristi

I know that strength training is important to overall health, as well as impactful to optimal weight management and fitness.  I sought out Sharon’s expertise to have Workouts To Go that I could do in my home 2 to 3 times/week with the weights and equipment that I have.  Since I began following these programs, I feel stronger.  Adding a focused strength training program has given me more energy and I notice that I can push myself harder in Metabolic Explosion Training class and Cross Training Circuits

My overall health is great.  In general, working with Sharon has eliminated the aches I was beginning to have in my right shoulder and knees.  I know this is a result of strengthening my muscles.  And, for my body, the strength training, along with MET and Cross Training Circuits has made an impact in definition and tone.

I am very satisfied with the programs. I am challenged and they eliminate the boredom of just doing the same thing. Also with the strength training, I am able to keep challenging myself simply by increasing the amount of weights that I use.

WTG is very effective, as well as convenient because you can do it in your home and, for me, this does not allow for any excuses.  Also, I do it first thing in the morning and it really starts the day off right.

I have only good things to say about my experience with Sharon as I trained for and completed the half marathon. The workouts were very challenging and got me prepared. She kept up with my progress diligently and made sure I was taking care after workouts as well. I especially liked how she kept me accountable via Facebook with humor and toughness.

— Jenny W.

I actually lost a couple pounds between Christmas and New Year's instead of gaining 5 - 10 and starting the new year even further away from "healthy" as I have in years past. I've recommended your program to a couple friends and wouldn't hesitate to do so in the future. Thank you!

In 5 1/2 months of online coaching, I've lost 35 lbs. and a total of 19".

In 12 weeks of online coaching, I've lost 15 lbs, 3.5" from my waist, 3" from my hips, 2" from my chest, 1" from my neck, more than 1/2" from each bicep, more than 1" from each thigh, and 1/2" from each calf. Clothes are continuing to get bigger, which makes me happy.
