SPANX Gets Active

After indulging in turkey, stuffing, cranberries and more today, we’re already thinking ahead to our post-Thanksgiving workout. We interviewed some of our sportiest Spanx-ters about their tips and tricks for working off the turkey. And of course, we polled them on their favorite SPANX Active pieces to wear while they’re at it!

Spanx-ter: Stephanie

SPANX Active Pick: The Convertible Knee Pant
Workout: I hate cardio machines, so hitting the heavy bag is my go-to workout for cardio and arms. Plus any holiday stress melts away when you’re pounding away at a heavy bag!

SPANX Active Pick: I like to wear the Shaping Compression Girl Short paired with the Streamlined Tank
Workout: My favorite work out is Hot Yoga: The room is set to 90 degrees. It is a great way to start the day (if you can get out of bed!!) and I love that I sleep like a rock that following night.

SPANX Active Pick: The Shaping Compression Knee Pant is what I like to wear while working out.
Workout: Since we travel to NOLA for the holidays, I keep my workouts simple while I’m there. I normally spend the morning walking with my parents and then I need something more intense. I follow this plan I found on Pinterest. It’s a quick burn when you’re on the go:

30 Jumping Jacks
5 Pushups
25 High Knees
7 Burpees
10 Crunches
7 Squats
5 Pushups
10 Crunches
7 Squats
5 Pushups
7 Squats
30 Jumping Jacks
1 Minute Wall Sit
5 Pushups
25 High Knees

Repeat 3-5 times!

SPANX Active Pick: I usually work out in the Shaping Compression Crop Color Pop with a Racerback Sports Bra (of course!)
Workout: I would say that my favorite work out after a big Turkey-Day would be a full-body circuit workout that includes: Standing jump squats 10 reps (3 rounds of each exercise). Walking lunges 10 reps then 90 minute sprints,1 minute bicycle crunches, and 1 minute of Russian twist exercise with a medicine ball then sit-ups for 1 minute.

SPANX Active Pick:The Power Pant is perfect for the cool weather.
Workout:I love to hike. One of my favorite trails is Blood Mountain: the highest peak of the Appalachian Trail in Georgia. It’s a good 2 hour workout with a great view.

SPANX Active Pick: I love the Ribbed Cami with Shelf Bra. It’s perfect and my active wear drawer is stuffed full of them.
Workout: I like to think ahead when it comes to stuffing myself with stuffing (and turkey, and pie, and green beans…) on Turkey Day. I signed up for a raceThanksgiving morning! Almost all cities have at least one race the morning of. This way when I am done racing, I feel like I have earned a feast.
