  • Dear Kellie & Daniel! I know a lot of people thank you for providing this workouts for us and I want to thank you too. I´m using it a lot and I think it´s a great thing you do. Its also a democratic way of getting fit. Being healthy and fit is getting more and more a luxurious product, which only rich ppl can enjoy. Many people can´t afford going to a studio or doing some extravagant sport-activity and for example a single-mother just doesn´t have enough spare time between working and stuff. There is a lot of pressure on men and women to look slim and sporty, but at the same time so many companies try to make money with this situation. There are so many myths, miracle-products, body-shaming ect, and its super refreshing to see how you two trie to bring a bit of clarity, health and humanity in this battlefield. Greets from Austria

  • I was confused between hiit and burpees or doing both but ended up doing planks.. still doing.. and thanks for the motivation.. good luck.. god bless u..

  • I love that you broke it up and basically used it as a break from your work. I’ve found myself getting glued to my chair while working so I’m excited to give this a try! Thanks for the idea!

  • I think. Your workouts are wonderful however I’m 69 and arthritic could you do some gentle things for me please. I can get down on my knees but it takes two weeks to get up.i would appreciate your help thanks take care and save safe

  • This was ABSOLUTELY the workout I needed today!!! I LOVE the Strength + Cardio workouts I’ll be on a mission to find the others! 😉 For the first time ever I read some comments before hitting ‘Play’ and I knew I had to do it I wasn’t really feeling it either but the sports bra was on (that’s my first step!) and I knew I’d feel better, which I now do.:-) Love the low impact options too still get the intensity and I love the flexibility you offer! Bring on the burpees I’ll do the squat/knee lift/twists anytime! AC wasn’t an issue at all didn’t even notice it.

  • omg you are absolutely adorable. such a simple challenge but the way you tell the story is so engaging. I heard the whole video like a child listens to a bed time story.

  • Awesome job! Now that I’m working 100% at home it’s so easy to site all day! I’m trying to stopget up move.. and you know how much I like to be active! This was really honest and motivating… ��my dog thinks it playtime when I pull out the mat, too. ��

  • This is lit, I haven’t seen one of you videos in a while, your vids are a vibe, and I love em. I was literally Subscribed when you had about 4,000 subs and and I saw videos from time to time, keep up the work. INSPIRATIONAL ��

  • I actually love that not every day was perfect bc the reality is just that, not perfect and that is okay ���� Awesome job pushing through!!

  • I’ve made it a personal challenge not to use any extra weights during my workouts, so I did this routine 3 times in a row, with a quick water break in between and doing the boxer shuffle as active rest for the 20 second intervals between exercises. #lowimpact #sweatfest #legsonfire

  • I’m with you PJ, I wasn’t feeling it this morning either! Told myself, just do it! I did and I’m so glad it did, I never regret it! Your story about the carry on bag for 22 days cracked me up! I’m a professional over packer!��

  • Awesome!! Love challenges like this. I’m currently doing a 10,000 step a day and cycle challenge and tracking it on my watch. Surprising how much it helps. Well done on sticking at it ������������

  • So Awesome! Congrats! No one likes burpees… (im pretty sure thats a fact)…but you held strong! And your time!! You cut it in half! But the best part was you working through the obstacles that came up. Ive always said Hard work pays off. Set backs and injuries delay progress but don’t erase goals. Stronger than ever! Now for me to step up my burpee game! lol.

  • Analysis paralysis? Yep, that’s me. ��
    I started another weight loss journey recently and I’m down 20 pounds but I’ve hit a plateau and those are always my biggest challenge. Have definitely noticed my body responding well though so for now I’ll keep trying. ��

  • LOVE all the new angles and vibes!!
    Also we just started doing burpees in garage with other body weight stuff.
    FEEL YA on that first squat day soreness.
    Okay more videos like this thanks.

  • That was pretty inspirational. I may not be doing burpees, but I definitely will copy some of your disciplinary practices like writing it down and checking it off once you’re finished. Also, I think doing a vlog may be a kick in the butt to actually get it done. If I know I have a video to make, and for those watching to hold me accountable, that may help. Thanks for taking the time to make this video.

  • Good on ya! That is a great result, I doubt I could 10! haha! Salutations from cloudy and ghostly quiet Ireland! ☘️☮️����������☮️☘️

  • I HATE burpees, with a passion. Well done you!!! Power woman, I love that you took this challenge! But I will definitely never join you ��

  • I knew I had to work out today..and this was a dooozy wow..great sweaty workout. Glad its cooler today so no ac needed however I do need some now afterwards. As for just a carry on you can never know what the weather is like.

  • I wasn’t feeling it either, PJ, and when I saw 50 minutes I said Ugh!! I made it through and feel so much better! No problem with your AC at all, I had mine on too so couldn’t tell ��

  • Wow..I gotta give you credit. April 16th I decided I was gonna do 100 burpees a day for a month. I did great for the first 4 days until I over did it. I do full body kettlebell workouts pretty heavy (70lb) and then decided I would also do the burpees. Not good. So I begin again today omitting burpees on training day. Wish me luck

  • Stellar workout�� It was the right amount of work for me�� I had to dig deep on those mountain climbers but I did it! Ac didn’t bother me a bit. You do what you gotta do darling. Thank you for the strong sweaty and mind pushing challenge today!

    Oh. On the patreon front. I’m undergoing a lot of medical issues at the moment so all my extra funds are going there. When we finally get whatever is going on with me figured out and I’m thank the gods pain free I’ll be able to be more giving. Please know it’s not you, it’s me����‍♀️ I’m so grateful to you for getting my mind to focus outside my pain for at least a wee bit on days I’m able to workout��

  • I was NOT feeling it either this morning-especially since it’s a Saturday…but I did it and am the better for it! Thanks PJ for another challenging workout!

  • Hi Kelly! I so lovvvee this workout. Just noticed a little error on the title of the 2nd and 3rd exercises here. The reverse lunge comes first before the deadlift. �� Otherwise, exceptional video! More power to you and Daniel!

  • Good outfit! I approve. Inspired me to go find a new skull design t-shirt on Etsy as I realised I have not had one for awhile.:) Yeah, I got the workout done too!

  • I only noticed the AC when you first put it on, after that i was too busy staying alive to notice anything but me lol!!! To say i was sweaty is an understatement, i feel like i just got out of the shower.

    I feel amazing!!!! This was yeeeeehahahahaaaaaaa!!!!!
    Feeling so empowered and proud right now��
    This feeling right here�� this is what i have missed.
    Thank you PJ��

  • Hi PJ the AC noise did not bother me at all so pls don’t punish yrself by turning it off……Happy silver jubilee anniversary to both you n yr loving husband

  • AC was fine. I’m happy you turned it on. We wouldn’t want you to get uncomfortable. Great workout PJ. Thank you. Have a great trip to Europe.

  • AC was not a problem. I like workouts with strength and cardio. I usually have to workout after work so I don’t feel like it sometimes but you are right I usually feel better after working out. Thank you for letting us work out with you.

  • Well this morning I was kinda feeling it but kinda wasn’t, if you get my drift. I just put my runners on hit play, didn’t think about it, and before I knew it….. BOOM the workout was complete with sweat dropping off me and now I feel fantastic. Thanks PJ. x

  • I’ve been doing this workout and a few other of the thigh/butt workouts
    plus cardio and other toning workouts from you guys for about a month
    and a half, and I am already seeing results. My legs are much stronger,
    and my thighs are tightening up! I am definitely seeing less cellulite
    if any at all now on my butt and thighs! Thank you so much for these
    videos! You guys are awesome!

    Reference for those who need it: Female, 24 years, 5’3″, 132 pounds, pear-shaped.

  • A/C not an issue at all. Maybe it was louder on your end than ours ����
    What a great workout PJ! I love these kind of combo exercises �� I will admit that I didn’t feel like working out today, I didn’t sleep well and didn’t feel like I had enough energy. But I know how much I love your videos so I said suck it up! Lol that being said I kinda had second thoughts after that first round of �� mountain climbers! I’m glad I pushed on bc at the end I was very proud of myself �� thank you PJ have a great time on your trip!

  • No the A/C did not bother me. If you had not said anything about it I never would have known.
    Love these types of workouts strength and cardio together!
    Thank you for your modifications they are very helpful when I am feeling ready to stop.❤️

  • The A/C noise was fine; it didn’t negatively impact hearing you at all. So take care of yourself, Woman! That was an awesome workout. I think it’s one of my favorites of your workouts. I didn’t feel like doing it, but when I feel that way I just make myself. I say the same thing I can stop if I want. But I almost never do.

  • I am 200 lbs. Would it be possible for me to lose 50 lbs by March with your workouts? If so which would you recommend? I have weights and a weight bench.

  • Anybody know what is Clegenatur Methods about? I hear many individuals enhance their bust size naturally with Clegenatur Methods (do a search on google).

  • Will this workout help me burn thigh and butt fat..and help me get my thighs and fat in shape?
    If I do these workouts on alternate days..imwill it work? Or do I need to do it daily?
    If I do it regularly every day then how long will it take for me to get into shape..since I have become chubby but not exactly fat

  • Great workout, looks really effective. I want to know how many times can you repeat each workout for best results and how many times should you repeat this workout during the week? can I do this workout everyday?

  • Tackled this one today after a 16 minute lower body HIIT workout. I’m now quite pleased with myself, even if my legs are ‘angry’ with me for the moment! Great workout as usual.

  • I would love to try these but I have retrolisthesis of the L5S1 and also have sciatica in my right hip with a strange pain manifesting in my left knee. Worried that it will aggravate.

  • One like for the accomplishment; well done on taking it on and completing it on your terms. One more like for muting “Hey, Google” and not setting off Google Homes all over the place; much appreciated for the consideration.

  • Congratulation on your wedding 25th anniversary! My husband and I have been together for 15 years. ^^ I watched your video which your husband and you were exercising together and I could know both of you were very lovely to each other. Thanks a lot for this workout. Of course I like it. Have a nice trip

  • I just found you guys! How is that? lol This 10 minute leg workout kicked my butt! I love it! I think I just found my new favorite youtube channel!

  • Great workout. Kelli, what type of Nike shoes are those? I have barefoot Merrells which I love under other circumstances, but after 9 months of working out with y’all and doing so much HIIT, they are taking a toll on my feet and ankles.

  • The preview in the left-hand corner has reverse lunges and deadlifts in the opposite order.

    Otherwise, great workout! Fitness Blender workouts are my favorite:)

  • I started doing the workout without weights and now I am doing a total of 20 lbs. I also like to add little by little extra intervals of some other workout(like abs). It kick my butt litterally! Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  • YO you monster!!! That is no small feat, well done. Did you notice ant changes in your resting heart rate before and after? Did you notice any other side effects like better sleep of weight loss or anything? I am a sucker for a challenge, my neighbors might hate me as I have wooden floors haha.

  • i am following you so long time, almost all videos i watched, and try to do in my workout program, thanks so much, and yes i fall in love to her ofcourse, after watch her so much,:))

  • are we supposed to follow that video and do exactly the same amount of reps or we should do some sets like 3×15? im asking that cause im worried about the results. I feel like we should do more reps. what do you think?

  • these 10 minute work outs its just what I need sometimes, just today I felt down and tired and didn’t do my usual half hour work out. wish I could of seen this earlier. But I think ill do this rite after work today. I feel awful when I don’t work out at all. this will help when I have no energy and have to much going on. thanks so much for this. keep them coming.

  • Gah guys!!!! did this after a core sesh! my buns! Lol! thank you! EXACTLY what this mama of 3 needs for her beach reveal in 2 months!

  • Hello u guys. I have a question. I stay at home most of the time cause I am an online entrepreneur so my lifestyle is a bit sedentary. Is it safe if I pair #FBFit and #FB30 everyday just to burn a bit more calorie daily? Thanks!! x

  • Oh this is hard, but worth it. I do this 3 times a week after my strength training with resistance bands (sweaty and out of breathe by the end). Then I follow it up with one of your cooldown/stretching videos (thank you!). I never thought I would make it through after watching it the first time, but I have managed to do it since you posted this workout. (Many compliments from my husband and thanks from the both of us.)

  • How do you guys go about deciding how to structure a workout? I’ve always wondered if it is what you guys feel like doing at any given time or if there is some strategy like harder at the beginning, easy in the middle, hard at the end, etc.

  • this is crazy! i’ve been sweating all over. it’s been a month or so that I don’t exercise. Finally I’m back �� God bless fitness blender.

  • Just a quick FYI: the image in the upper left corner for the deadlifts and reverse flys are swapped. No biggy, just thought you might want to know.
    You guys are the best and I promote you to all my friends and family
