Summer approaching fast – if you’re not feeling “beach ready” just yet, don’t worry. There’s still time to get there by July 4 weekend if you enter my 40 Day Summer Shred Challenge!

Everything in this program is laid out for you, step-by-step, to take all of the guesswork out of getting in shape – what you should be eating for each meal of the day, workouts with video demonstrations for every exercise so you know exactly what to do in the gym, my cardio routines to help you lose body fat (fast!) and much, much more.

The program includes three different workout plans – two at-home programs and one gym plan. So you can do every workout from home, with minimal equipment, and still see amazing results!

Check out a sample at-home workout from last year’s Summer Shred Challenge – all you need is a pair of dumbbells and your own bodyweight for this upper-body focused session.

I create all of my Challenges from scratch, so every program is different from the last – new workouts, new exercises, new meal plans, new recipes and more!

Give it a try and make sure to click the graphic below to check out this year’s 40 Day Summer Shred Challenge starting on May 24 (signups end May 23)!
