Killer "100" Circuit Workout

hey guys! i wanted to pop in a share an awesome, super sweaty workout that i did yesterday. i've been getting a little tired of group exercise classes so i wanted to come up with something on my own. 
i created a bootcamp-style circuit that keeps your heart rate up for the entire 20-minute (not included warmup and cooldown) workout. i was sweating like a beast by the end! 

click here to pin this!! 

I did the whole circuit in a small area of my gym's basketball court. i sprinted to three [white] lines on the court, with the third being halfway, for each sprint interval. 

i used a mat (pictured on the right) for some of the other moves. 
when i finished i was sweating like crazy!!

apparently this workout gets your sweat going and your hair frizzing ;-)
even my hair was soaked! 
I also thought I'd tack on the survey that the lovely Emma tagged me in! 

Here are the survey “rules”:
#1: You must post these rules.
#2: Each person must post 11 things about themselves on their blog.
#3: Answer the questions the tagger set for you in their post and create 11 new questions for the people you tag to answer.

1. What is your biggest goal/dream right now?
this one's a toughie! all i know is i want to go to a really good college (i start hearing from the schools i applied to in march!) and major in something that i love. but someday i would love to work in a health/fitness industry!!

2. Which place in the world would you like to visit the most, and why?

I would love to visit Europe and go on a tour of a few countries [italy, france, spain, to name a few]. the only time i've been out of the U.S. was one trip to Canada back when I was in middle school!  

3. What is your favourite book?

Harry Potter. always has been and always will be! ;)

4. When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I always wanted to be a vet because i haven't lived a second of my life without owning a cat. 

me when i was four!
and when i was about 8-9!
5. What has been the best moment in your life so far?
hmm i don't know if i can answer this! there have been quite a few memorable moments (going to maui, new york city, and more!) but there hasn't been ONE moment where i've been like "this is the best thing i've ever experienced". 

6. Your favourite color?

green!! funny story: green used to be my most hated color. i hated it so much i would leave it out of the rainbow when i was drawing! but now my room is painted 3 walls green, 1 wall blue - both colors (along with red) are my favorite! 

7. If you could meet anyone in the world, who would it be?
i think it would be awesome to meet all of my blog friends!

8. Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

funny question - i consider myself a huge extrovert. i'm crazy, goofy, and quirky, but i'll bet if you asked this question to some of the people i go to school with they would say i am shy. i'm not loud around a bunch of random people that i don't know/like, but when i'm around friends and family i'm definitely a certifiable loud weirdo. 

9. If you could run any race, what would it be?

i know that i want to run a marathon and a half ironman in my (semi) near future. 

10. Do you have any fears or phobias?

the dark! the dark is the unknown and my brain can come up with some pretty outlandish scary scenarios when i hear odd noises around the house.. heh. i also fear losing loved ones. 

11. In a film of your life, which actress would play you?

that is a good question.. i have no idea! i haven't seen too many movies (aka don't know very many actors/actresses) but when i was way younger, my elementary school teacher always told me i looked like anne hathaway. 

since i'm too lazy to come up with 11 people to tag i'm just going to tag three! 

Shannon @ Healthiful Balance

Kat @ Kat's Health Corner

Brittany @ A Spoonful of Peanut Butter

and for coming up with 11 questions.. oh dear. you can use the 11 above or just tell us 11 things about you that your readers might not know!

question of the day: answer one of the ?s that i answered above! 


  1. Whoa that workout looks hard! My hair gets suuppper frizzy when I exercise, haha. You went to Maui? Sounds fun! I love the color your room is painted, by the way. So pretty. When I was little, I wanted to be a waitress. :) Now I want to be a doctor.

  2. hey! i just came across your blog & love it :) we seem to have lots in common! do you want to run at college next year?!

  3. What an amazing workout! I love circuit workouts. :)

    Awe, thanks for the shout out. <3
