Feel GUILTY If You Miss a Workout? How To Get Rid of Exercise Guilt

Video taken from the channel: CambriaJoyVlogs

Guilt often plays a large part in motivating women to take up and keep exercising. It is sometimes called a “prosocial” emotion (Leith & Baumeister, 1998, p. So this is why I don’t like guilt: Because it’s a rut, and it makes it difficult for people to think out of the box and actually find a solution to their problem! The good news is that there is a powerful technique to beat the hell out of guilt! �� To apply the “overcoming guilt” technique you need to: Find what your “should” is.

Through self-exploration and coaching others, I have figured out three tips for overcoming exercise guilt. If you’d like to hear the audio version (with a bonus tip!), listen below: Schedule rest days into your week, and fill that time with activities you love. Unless you are consciously making an effort to quiet that part of yourself, exercise always happens because it otherwise leaves you feeling guilty when you can’t do everything.

So how can you let go of that exercise guilt? Here are a few ways to cope: 1. Get comfortable in your own body. Seems to me you haven’t really solved it all that much if you can only get over the exercise guilt if you reduce your food intake as a result, by eating a salad and not having dessert. That’s not healthy either as ultimately you’re restricting yourself to be comfortable with the fact you haven’t exercised and so weight loss is running your life still.

Exercise releases a surge of neurochemicals and hormones—like endorphins, norepinepherine, and even adrenaline—that boost your energy, mood, motivation, and pleasure, she says. Plus, burning off a. i defffffinitely experience exercise guilt. sometimes it’s not that bad, like if i have exercised for 10 days straight or something, then i can take a day off without feeling TOO bad about it. i try to justify it by telling myself that my body needs a break, but i still feel as though i should keep truckin along. the worst, though, is after i indulge. for example, i graduated high. Working out if you’re already in pain can up your risk for injury and stress out the body even more.

Being super sore all over gives you permission to spend some coveted time on the couch for a. You’re not a bad person because you took a break from exercise. Don’t let the little voices of shame or guilt force you to be paralyzed by the past, because you’ll end up procrastinating in the present.

Instead, view today as a brand new opportunity to feel good and invest in your health. Set a realistic, specific goal. The cycle of guilt is the ultimate Catch-22 situation, an emotional prison where no matter what you do, you end up feeling bad.

I know this place, because it’s taken me weeks to.

Until you can get to a place where you feel good about exercise rather than using it as an instrument of guilt, then you are not ready for more.

Maybe you’re wondering why it matters if exercise is guilt-driven if it at least gets you up out of your desk chair and into the gym.

Don’t feel too guilty if you miss some training, but be honest with yourself and realize that you will not get the benefits of health and strength you are seeking if you miss workouts too often.

This way I feel slightly guilty when I skip the routine and, conversely, when I do exercise, I enjoy that little heady virtuous feeling I remember from my jogging days.

If, on the other hand, exercise does little to cause significant weight loss, then you should focus your time, effort, and money elsewhere and stop feeling guilty about not having joined a gym.

  • i subscribed to LM before and this is my favorite workout! too bad this video substituted the BTS song in 10′ to something else.. it was my fav portion of the workout

  • I’m a new subscriber from this video alone. THANK you.. THank you for this. Yesterday I had a break down and my husband had to talk me down from that tight chest I was having in my feeling from panicking because I was tired from working out for an hour 5 days a week. I skipped my monday workout and felt like that I was a failure once again. ( I’ve lost 80lbs before but gained weight back due to pregnancy..Not all) But I am always worried about me looking a certain way so either people don’t talk about me or I THINK I’ll be happy if I’m smaller. I felt like that I would undo all I’ve been doing. For 3 months straight, I’ve been working out 5 days a week..Off weekends and the one week I didn’t do a “Monday..”It felt like I just undid EVERYTHING I worked on. I couldn’t handle it and I lost it. The guilt was destroying me and I am so GLAD I stumbled upon your video. Thank you. God Bless You.

  • Oh my goodness I needed this so so much today, I was exhausted this morning and missed my class and have been spending the day feeling guilty. But I guess my body just really needed a break

  • Thankyou so much! needed to hear this today:) <3 Do you think I should confront the fear and just not work out for a while? cant't figure out the appropiate amount of time that it's okay to not workout without being lazzy??... maybe that's a problem in itself lol

  • I’m crying because of how much I needed to hear this and I’m hearing it now in this moment! Today is the day I will own it! Thank you Cambria

  • Thank you for this. I’ve been killing myself with this and was almost falling out of love with working out. I was working out 3 hours a day on top of a 9-5 full time job and piano lessons every day. I missed a single gym session I would batter myself because I would tell myself I’m not disciplined. I just end up crashing straight into a wall. Injuries, sickness, complete lack of motivation. I wouldn’t listen to my body or mind and I suffered a lot cause of that. Even crazier is there was never any outside pressure to do any of this. I took it all on myself and yelled at myself internally for failing to do any of it. I just needed some positive words just gonna take today to reevaluate and put together my mental health.

  • This video could not be more true. The world needs more of you Cambriathank you for helping and saving my happiness. You are truly a beautiful, amazing person and your words mean the world to me & so many people. You are such an inspiration of mine. We love you Cambria!!!

  • I had less progress when I was hyper monitering myself and working out intensly 6 days a week. My body started to stress out and I wasn’t changing, I was still overweight. Then I stopped obsessing about being ‘healthy’ (which isn’t true health mind you) and all of a sudden, the last few pounds fell off and now I am happier and free from food and exercise guilt for the first time. ��

  • Thank you for your message. I used to struggle with feeling guilty when I “missed” a workout. I’m a rower and I wanted to give you some tips on the rowing machine. When you finish a stroke and your legs are straight in front of you, you want to lean back to so your body makes a 45 degree angle. Your arms should come out like chicken wings or like you are elbowing someone in the face. When you come back up towards the screen, your arms should come out straight first then your back comes out of the 45 degree angle. Once your hands have passed your knees, that’s when you move your legs. When you come up to the screen (called the catch) your elbows should be over your knees. When you push back (called the drive) only your legs move first, when they are out straight then you lean back to the 45 degree angle after then you pull your arms into your chest. Sorry for the long post. I hope that you don’t mind me correcting your form. That you for being the lovely and inspiring woman of Christ that you are. God bless.

  • Thank you so much for this girl! I LOVE your mentality towards this topic. You’re amazing and I’m so proud of your progress with your mentality and health. Love you!

  • I usually don’t comment, but I absolutely loved this vlog. I loved your message and the workout clip at the end. I also loved the song. You are inspirational and I’m so glad I found your channel. God bless.

  • Yaaasss this is such a good message �� I recently started working out again at the gym after like 6 months of not working out. I have already lost over 70 pounds over the last few years, but I do need to just tone up my body and lose like another 15 more pounds. BUT I find it hard to workout when I am not fueled by anger, or like, I feel like I have to be in an aggressive state to work out. But I got myself to the gym the other day and I just stopped my mind for a moment, telling me all the negative things about myself and I just went there with an intention of focusing on doing good for my body. Like I am working out right now because it is healthy and I love my body and I love me, and god wants to see me taking care of myself. When I started to focus on that, it became so much easier, now I can’t wait to go back. Because I took the focus off of ex-boyfriends, my flabby thighs, and what I need to weight. I put all that crap in the garbage and just said I want to do whats best for me <3

  • Thanks for sharing this!  It is so true.  I did the same with working out, but I learned my lesson a while back and “fell in love” with how God created me and working out in general, which you helped with through your videos.  This still spoke to me at this very moment though, but not in a way you probably expected.  I ended up taking that perfection mindset to my Youtube channel and schedules and planning and all that jazz.  I would feel guilty when I didn’t stay on schedule, and I was wondering why I was so run down and tired, and I was losing my passion. 
    I needed to hear these words, Cambria, and God used you once again!  I finally know how to put how I feel into words that make sense.  Thank you, and I thank God FOR you!  <3

  • Cambria, God is using you in such a powerful powerful way. I needed to hear this so much today. I have just started a new job in the last month which I absolutely love, and I’ve also started back to school at University. I’m finding I’m feeling overwhelmed, and very tired. I really want to workout consistently, but am often just so tired I crash on the couch. I definitely have been getting very hard on myself. This video hit my heart so hard. Thank you for following God’s leading, and sharing His heart with us. You are amazing and you inspire me and encourage me! I so appreciate you and all you do! <3

  • Just taking time to say that I am taking a break from graduate school work to watch your content because it is truly uplifting. Thank you Cambria!

  • Can you please make a video about how to handle people at work when they aren’t christians and you have to hear them talk about others and negative stuff and as a baby Christian how can I handle that and what should I do.

  • What a great workout! First time trying this video and new to kickboxing. I just loved round 6 cool down. Thank you for your message.

  • this video was for me and i know it was. I just started my freshman year in college and i am super busy and havent gotten to go to the gym in a little bit and i was listening to satans lies of that i will lose my progress and just feeling guilty for not going. this is why i love your videos cambria, because you encourage us constantly and share the lord puts on your heart. thank you so much.

  • loved this video❤
    The untethered soul is a great book about hearing and acknowledging the presence of your ego (the negative thoughts your were talking about) and knowing that they are NOT you.

  • Olá querida professora. Meu nome é. Daniella e sou de Sao Paulo Brasil. Eu amo suas aulas. Gostaria de saber quanto podemos queimar de calorias com essa aula de 43 minutos. Obrigada

  • I’ll be honest cambria, you talking about working out is SO inspiring �� I’ve missed the gym a lot this week and this helped me feel so at peace with that! ALSOthe way you positively speak about how you LOVE your workouts inspires me to hit the gym and do workouts I enjoy �� I love it! Thank you and keep talking about the things you are so clearly passionate about! ����

  • I 100% needed to hear this. I was sick with a sore throat and just feeling so blah all last week and didn’t go to the gym because I didn’t want to get others sick. I felt extremely guilty for not going (especially because people around me kept asking when I was going to the gym again). I’ve also been struggling to keep motivation and haven’t had much this week to go so I’ve definitely felt guilty. But, this makes me so much more..relaxed? I guess is the right word. All I know is it’s made me feel better about taking some time off so thank you Cambria <3

  • Cambria, honestly i dont know how to write it. EXACTLY about that I had a talk with my mom yesteday. ’cause i broke down… couldnt do it anymore. And than: your video came. Like send from heaven. SO crazy, SO wunderful. Thank you. I am criyng while writting this because you truyl touched my heart. (sorry for my english..)

  • You are such an inspiration. You’ve lifted my spirit in so many ways with this video. I’ve struggled with hating my body, hating myself, and binge eating for years. I’ve been trying so hard to lose weight and often I feel so lost with it all.

    Is there anyway you could maybe do a future video on eating healthy and maybe how to eat like you do to lose weight and get healthy for beginners like me?

  • I know you used to follow tone it up I can see why before, you had that kind of mentality following them. Nothing wrong with those ladies but I feel when I was hardcore into tiu I felt so pressured, felt I needed to compete with the community, and felt I needed to look like k&k. Finding your channels has been such a reality check for me. Before I found your channel I did have a list of goals but after watching a lot of your videos, I’ve really made a detailed list of what I want to accomplish and knowing I can’t take it all on at once.

    On a side note, I’d love to see more from cambria’s kitchen and if you have different salad recipes!

  • Christa is amazing! She is energetic and always smiling! Her instruction and modifications are clear and make the workouts fun for everyone at all levels. Christa, you are beautiful on the outside and shine from the inside. Thanks PopSugar!

  • Cambria, thank you so much for making this video. I truly did feel like you were talking to me specifically. I am going to take your advice and try not to feel guilty for missing a workout. Instead I will do my best to love myself as I am now not some perfect picture of who I think I should be. As you said: acknowledge the steps and achievements you make towards your overall health goals. I love you and thank you again for sharing your knowledge and encouragement. ��

  • Excellent work out class. It’s lovely how italian american accent is still recognizable even to someone like me who’s not from the US.

  • Preach, girl! Thank you so much, this is exactly what I need right now. I am going through something similar to what you went through… and I am trying so hard to push all the negative thoughts away and drown them in positivity, but it is hard. BUT, I am not giving up!:) Thank you… I shall be free:)

  • Exactly what I needed to hear about Cambria! Thanks so much for sharing. I love how open you are to letting God speak through you. You are so inspiring and resonate so deeply with so many. Love you and God bless you ❤️

  • I cannot express how much I needed to hear this today and at this point in my life. Your videos have helped me get through so many different stages in my life, and as I am about to embark on another stage (graduating from college in December!), I’ve found myself (and my boyfriend) turning back to our faith for guidance and it is in large part thanks to you. You are changing so many lives, and I hope you never forget it!

  • Oh my goodness! This brought tears to my eyes. I have always been guilty when I couldn’t or didn’t make a workout. You said everything I needed to hear and moving forward no LIES only TRUTH! 😉 Thanks Cambria for being amazing and always uplifting <3

  • AMEN
    This videos message was so beautiful and I’m so thankful that you are not afraid to say exactly what God is putting on your heart. Your passion is so inspiring Cam!!

  • Love this vlog! I totally agree, I know so many girls who skip one day and complain the entire day that they regretted not waking up at 5am and working out. I’m like its okay!!!

  • I am lying in bed the whole day (because I am ill) and I am thinking I should go to the gym. So I really needed your talk today. Perfect timing 😉

  • I’m going through a weight loss journey right now & it’s super hard to not feel guilty if I miss the gym! I’m actually at the gym right now & I was starting to feel this way while being here! Thank you for the encouraging words, I really needed this! Lets pray for each other ❤️

  • When I started to exercise, I became obsessed with how I would look if I fulfilled all the requirements. But as I’m studying a career that demands a lot of time, there were days when I couldn’t do exercises because I spent all day in college or I was so so incredibly tired. That’s when I started feeling guilty about losing all my sessions. It’s been a month since I haven’t been able to do exercises for the jobs I must do to pass in university but I’ve learned that if I never give up, no matter how long I leave, I’ll get what I want. Much love for you Cambria, you always make my day better��

  • I was completely lost during the burnout section. I had no idea what I was doing with my body!�� I think I only did 40% of the workout correctly. If that.��

  • One of my favourite pop sugar workouts by far! Feeling bad ass after that. Had to pause a few times to get the moves, but it was so much fun and challenging ���� loved it ��

  • Thankyou for making this video for me. I really felt your message and passion. I still set those rules and feel the guilt when I miss the gym so this one really hit the nail on the head there. You are so fierce and gracefull all at the same time �� ps come to Australia for a holiday please!

  • I love your advices dear Cambria, you don´t imagine the way they have helped me to visualize myself as a complete human being, you always has the right words for us. God bless you forever. XOXO

  • You are absolutely amazing and I needed this so badly�� you are so beautiful on the inside and out. Keep doing what you do, thank you❤️

  • So true I haven’t been in the gym for a month. Only because of medical reasons and I would be like I hope I don’t gain weight and I was upset that I couldn’t go to the gym. But I realized that I am made in God’s imaged so I stop feeling guilty

  • Wow Cambria. This video just confirmed everything I have slowly begun to understand over the past few months. I used to hate myself. I used to diet, and then binge, and then hate myself more and beat myself through a workout to make up for it.
    Not anymore. God has been healing my mind, as you said, and showed me light. And love. And FREEDOM. It has been a process and change hasn’t happened overnight, but little by little He has led me from captivity to freedom. From dark to light. From hate to love. He is still leading me. Your video served to open my eyes even more to TRUTH! Thank you. X

  • Cambria I really needed this because I’ve been hard on myself for “missing” workouts and then I end up feeling ugly until my next workout. So thank you, I know i am fearfully and wonderfully made by God and you just reiterated that at the perfect moment. I love you and what you do. ❤

  • Thank you, Cambria, fr speaking the Truth! Declearing the hings that are true! Thankyou for letting God do work trough you! God bless you!

  • True freedom however comes through Christ. The word of God says where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty 2 Corinthians 3:17 through Him is true deliverence from all enslavement to standards that are unreachable in our strength and outside of His will. If we first understand what Christ Jesus did for us at the cross then we can start to understand grace, forgiveness, life, acceptance and truth and all that is truly good through God’s eyes we will then start to value others and ourselves more highly than we have before not in a way that is selfish or proud but in a way thay is humble, true and precious. Eating/living healthily is a choice; we will need to see the value of it before we choose is. Common grace is given in measure to all by God but God’s ultimate grace is given through the cross of Christ, made available to all. We don’t chose that; God chooses us it is completely undeserved but still given freely to us yet it cost the Lord God Almighty everything to give it. That is true grace. If God gave His Son Jesus to give us life, who chose to go to the cross and lay down His life for us to pay the debt, the price for our sins to stand before a righteous judge (God the Father) on our behalf to pay our fine/debt for our sin (breaking God’s commands) how can we say God does not love us that is like saying to someone who took a bullet for us/who gave us everything they could and still saying “I don’t believe you love me” no greater love can any man have than to lay His life down for His friends. John 15:13.

  • Saw your video this morning and You are so on point! Side note: I really appreciate it that you added the workout and what exact moves you did. Did your arm workout this morning after my jog. We worked you together. Well sort of. Close enough. Thank you Cambria. God bless!

  • Wow! Absolutely love this! I’m so proud of took something that gripped you and had a huge hold on your life for so long and turned it into good and now are speaking truth through it!! Love love love!

  • Thank you so much Cambria!I’ve been feeling guilty for days because I can’t work out when I’m sick. I really needed to hear this. Have you thought about starting a podcast? I would definitely listen!!!

  • How do u start back when u feel tired all the time? I want to but once I get off work all I want to do is go home instead of working out?

  • I literally needed this video��I’ve been struggling mentally, physically and spiritually because I’ve wrapped my mind around perfectionism. I went from a 2xl to a large in a couple of months and I felt that if I missed a work out I was going to get bigger again.But hearing this video encouraged me to be happy and to be human and to no longer feel ashamed for missing a workout. Honestly the best video ever.��Thanks��God bless you��

  • I fell in love with Christa’s workout after the three last breaths in cooldown. I take them as an oath to myself. As a person who has suffered from anorexia as well as bulimia (and probably a lot more undiagnosed problems) that ted talk about the why just spoke to me so much. Thank you for this workout and this lift up! Love you, Christa!

  • Always love your cardio box workouts on popsugar. But first time I’ve cried! What you said during cool down really hit a nerve. I’m struggling at the moment and have had to reach out and get help. Thank you for your words. Reminding me that I AM strong. I AM confident. And I AM capable of anything.

  • So cute the professor (the first minutes, he looks so good with his beard and without it too) and nice smile. Great routine!! A lot of greeting for Les Mills from Lima, Perú.

  • Hi everyone. I would like to know what’s the track for the Power Training 3? Anyone here knows the title and the artist? It went with the line “I gotta tell you something” Thank you! It would be much appreciated.

  • Great routines! I enjoy them a lot! I wish you could add more of them, especially longer ones, 50 or 60 min session. Thanks again!

  • This is an absolutely brilliant workout which has helped me keep my sanity during this covid19 crisis. Wonderful, motivating instructors with clear and easy-to-follow directives. Thank you so much. xxx

  • I am totally into Body Combat since not being able to go to the Goodlife Gym. My wife got me addicted to this and I am thankful for this to stay healthy and sane. Thank you Lesmill/Bodycombat/Goodlife. Stay healthy and safe.

  • How many calories would you burn with this workout? I remember years ago I was doing something really similar which was called Fit Combat, I did it for 2 years and it kept me really in good shape, I’m glad I found these sessions on you tube!

  • Hy, check my channel.You will can thind Boxing fight, highlights, compilations:

  • Thank you Cambria, you are so genuine and kind. I have been a subscriber for a long time and watching you grow in YouTube and remain YOU is awesome. Thank you ��

  • I started this training today, I am 90 kg, and I started also a keto diet. In 1 month I come back here to tell you guys about it. (Today: 31-07-2020) Good Luck to everyone

  • Phew! Fitbit say 416 calories even with doing some modifications not bad! I like how challenging the moves are for my naturally uncoordinated self makes me think harder and I forget how much I’m sweating!

  • the cardio finisher KILLED me……GREAT workout! Please bring her back! Great instructor….goes slow to get use the move and then speeds it up.

  • i did this last week and had to stop ’cause i felt like im gonna die,,, so rn i’m back, doing this on my period �� my bones feel attacked

  • Great workout, the more you do it, the faster you can do the combinations. And she does a great job moving from moderate to high intensity throughout.

  • I started following this video bare handed and cheated/modified all the way to finish. Now I’m following the same video in my boxing gloves and punching a heavy bag without cheating on any of the moves. Never get bored on Christa. She is one of the best instructors I followed on YouTube. Pop sugar is great with sound effect. The music is not over loud that you can’t hear the instructor talking like some of the other channels I tried.

  • omg ive seen everyone saying this works really good, im gonna start doing this at least 4x a week for two weeks.
    start: 48kg
    like this up for motivation!!! <3

  • HOLY SHIT this was so good!!! Im not a very energetic person but I kept a “warrior mindset” all throughout the video and felt AMAZING! More videos like this please!

  • For those who have never done one of Christa’s classes I highly recommend you try hunting down a video that shows you the moves. While she does do them slow for the first few reps, beginners who are just learning the moves for the first time may find this less of a workout and more of a frustration. I have done her videos about 5 times and some times my hand-eye coordination still doesn’t “cut” it. However, even as you’re doing the workout and working through the frustration, it’s the end that really surprises you as you’re dripping sweat. It may not seem like an intense workout, but the sweat says otherwise. Thanks Christa and Popsugar for a fun workout. I will keep practising until I nail it!

  • Love the workout. Will not critizise the form, cause it’s no martial art course BUT I want to add one thing: please be careful with that “snap kick”! DON’T LET YOUR KNEE SNAP! It should not be completely straight and not snapped. you will ruin your knees. The same is true for your ellbow if you don’t stop straightening when doing the jabs.:)

  • One of my most favourite workouts. I started following Popsugar about a year ago and it changed my life! Now, during the lockdown, Christa’s and Jeanette’s workouts are the only thing keeping me sane and somewhat motivated. I keep looking for more 40–60 mins workouts to have some variety, but so far found nothing as great as those two!

  • why did they get so excited when she said they made the cut, what does she mean.? (killer workout btw i cant stop sweating after the workout)

  • I am so sad that I didn’t see this 4 years ago!!! This girl is MY SPEED!! i WISH I could be IN her classes!!! Thank you so much for introducing me to this workout!!!!!!!!!!

  • I had tears in my eyes, from the fact that 1. The lady kept talking through that workout, how is that even possible? 2. The pain of the workout 3. The personal confidence boost from repeating her word of encouragement to my self. Thanks so much!

  • Ok Christa you challenged me, not for grannies? I am 49; grandma of 3 and just finished my first week, you are definitely one of the best coaches, been gaining so much weight during quarantine so will be back in a few weeks with results. Love this workout!

  • Seems a bit overly complicated with the instructions, gives the instructions then adds on really quickly. By 6 minutes in I was a bit overwhelmed:(

  • Hello Christa, Hello POPSUGAR Fitness, great video I like it! As I have seen in your video you do training with time intervals? You could promote our Interval Timer “KondiMaster” in you videos. Send us an e-mail if you´re interested in business. Kind regards Stefan ( / [email protected])

  • Christa!!! This workout was AMAZING! I soon needed it, and your positive affirmations during the cool down hit home for me today and I may or may not have had a tear or two

  • Anxiety meant I was really struggling to get out of bed today but I decided to do this workout not expecting the exact pep talk I needed. I feel so much better for doing this. Thank you Christa!!! ��️‍♀️

  • When you realize you couldn’t keep tempo during the kick and squat but then I realized I did a wide squat instead of a regular lol ����

  • I found popsugar fitness in order to battle my anxiety. Thank you guys for giving me a bit more control in my life and destroying my midnight anxiety sessions!

  • Such a powerful and cathartic workout! I had such a euphoria towards the end while saying ” I am capable of anything” Thank you Crista. Can’t say this enough that all you amazing instructors are making this world so much bearable in current circumstances.

  • I totally underestimated this workout! Cause I had told my wife that this was some simple girl workout,( not being sexist!) I finally did it an its amazing! Got me sweating like crazy!I God bless Christy!! Ive been doing these boxing workouts for the past 3 days �� I feel like I have more energy stamina and strength!

  • I just done kickboxing today except for 35:29 i couldn’t do the jump. Need to improve more. gotta do this again. I AM STRONG I AM CONFIDENT. Thanks for this workout Christa ��

  • I don’t believe in god, but I got so inspired by you!! I believe in the same things, I just replace “god” by “the universe”. Thank you! I really needed this today❤️❤️

  • I’ve finally found fun in exercise. It’s been a week of doing these body combat workouts and it has brought out a side of me I never thought I had before,body and mind strength. I’ve finally found what works for me exercise wise. Thanks Les mills. Nice job guys!

  • Wow this was so good, Ive been putting it off and putting it off more that now Idk where to start. My doctor told me that I’m at a healthy weight and that sadly sent such a peace through me that I stopped worrying about how I look and what I ate and now I’m back where I started and the anxiety comes and it’s hard to make it go away…I really needed this thank you!

  • 367 fat dirty fucks disliked this. you are a killer. I used to be a man with 95 kg at 175 cm which is overweight and who knew no self defense. Now I’m almost 73 kg weighting and moving faster than ever. more flexible. Thank you.

  • Christa is amazing and she gives very good Life advises my mind is super healthy since i do her workouts every day. Best anti depressive pill as she says popsugar please keep invite her for more classes

  • Didn’t feel like doing my routine workout today and decided to look for something different. Stumbled upon this wonderful lady and now I’m hooked ��♥️

  • Thanks Christa!! I wanna share with you that you introduced me into kickboxing and i fell in love! I love giving all in, it gives me soo much power and energy and afterwards i always feel so great. Thank you so much for your workoutsthey’re my favorite. I am having exams right now and i love to to do some kickboxing before the exam because i feel so focused and energetic after that!!

  • Dear Cambria, I have been in a healthier lifestyle for about two years now. I used to have the same mindset you did, that if I didn’t workout or not eat heathy all the time that I was going to gain weight and not look like how I wanted to because I had worked so hard at trying to look a certain way. I have been watching your videos for a couple of months now, and all I can say is thank you. Thank you for helping me to realize that I do not have to feel guilty about myself if I don’t workout or if I want to eat a sweet treat sometimes. Your videos have inspired me to become a better person mentally and spiritually. This video has especially helped me get rid of all that guilt and just live with freedom!

  • OH MY GOD I THINK WE KIND OF HAVE A CONNECTION BECAUSE THIS IS WHAT I REALLY NEED AT THE MOMENT. I actually started working out since about 6 years ago, but this is the first time i ever feel this way, and it is not even go to the gym but doing workout at home (it is easier for me to do workout at home with my situation). And this actually comes from the feeling of being responsible. It is funny and stupid, but since i loss weight so much and people compliment me for that, i feel like i have this responsibility that i have to keep this body and continuing losing weight and being skinnier than i am right now. Like when people said i looked like gain a little bit of weight, i would feel sooooo bad at myself and this affects how i feel about my accomplishments with weight loss and health goals. And at the moment i feel so bad everytime i missed my workout. So i was so happy when i found out you made this video:) thank you so much for sharing your story and giving the advices, i will be working on it!

  • Christa is my favorite instructor y’all have had! Even when the combos feel difficult, she always reminds us to keep going and to be less hard on ourselves. Love the positive energy

  • Didn’t watch full video cause I like to workout through videos and not knowing. I can do it and will. Will do it and edit this comment on how I felt and how hard it is.
    Damn I did it tried my best love this workout not gonna it takes a while to get used to and do the moves. The trainer was a cuttie.

  • I underestimated this workout when I started it by believing it was very light, but I totally felt the opposite way the next day when my whole body ached �� awesome workout ��

  • I would classify this as an “advanced” kickboxing workout. As Christa dives right into the workout with a shorter warm-up, this workout can be a little frustrating for beginners who have not been introduced to the four core punches of boxing. I have done Christa’s other Popsugar Fitness classes, and have managed to master those ones, but this one I find to be more fast-paced with shorter demo times. So if you haven’t done any of Christa’s classes before, do the longer workouts where she takes more time to demo the moves before attempting this one.

  • I could not focus because of the non stop chatter. To each their own, as it sounds like a lot of women liked her. My wife was annoyed as well. Still, hey, a free workout, can’t complain!

  • This is hard! I’m trying to get fit for martial arts once the pandemic is over, & I have trouble keeping up with some of these sequences.

  • Love love this workout!!! I love your workout routines because I get quick results and have fun. Your sharing about anxiety was good for us.

  • Christa!!! This workout was AMAZING! I sooo needed it, and your positive affirmations during the cool down hit home for me today and I may or may not have had a tear or two. THANK YOU <3

  • Cambria, thank you soo much for what you’re doing. You’re amazing, God speak through you wonderfully. GBY ��❤ and say hi to Bo, he’s an amazing husband, I pray to God that He will send me my the one ��

  • This classes are excelent!!! Love them!! I do three or four times a week one class, I am from Guatemala!! congratulation you guys are a great team!

  • This was such a good workout, I like her because she keeps it real, no fake motivation or positivism, just real workout conversation, thanks.

  • Wow this is definitely the best exercise video… I just love her positivity and attitude, helped me make it to 36:22 on the first day ���� and I’m literally drenched in sweat. Definitely gonna try another session this evening cause I feel so pumped and energetic after this. I never knew boxing was this good and fun ����
