How To Mix Up Your PWR Journey
Are you looking to mix up your PWR fitness routine? Perhaps you want to embark on a new challenge to keep you motivated? Like everything in life, sometimes we crave variety with fitness!
Whether it’s boredom, you’ve hit a fitness plateau, or you’re simply curious about changing up your fitness routine, I’ve rounded up some fun and easy ways to do exactly that.
Change up your PWR journey
If you want to add some range to your fitness routine, these tips and tricks will bring a new energy to your workouts.
Twice each year, I create six unique and exclusive weeks of PWR in the Sweat Challenge. Whether you want to begin a new year by including weight training as one of your daily practices, or you're looking for mid-year motivation, I've got your back!
Stay tuned to my email list or to social media to find out when the next Sweat Challenge begins, so you can make the most of the limited-edition program.
If you're following one of my PWR programs on Sweat, and you want to break up your regular training and test your fitness, there are Challenge workouts available in the Browse section of your app. The “More Challenges” button will give you options you can choose from to test how far you've come.
I encourage you to use challenge workouts like this to assess your fitness progress — progress should be recorded by what you can do, and how you feel, not the number on the scale.
If you’re smashing through your PWR workouts, I’m SO proud of you.
You’re EMPOWERING yourself through fitness and that’s an amazing thing!
There are a full 52 weeks of PWR available!
My original gym-based hypertrophy training program, PWR, now has 52 week — that's a full year — of progressive training. That means that when you commit to your training journey, you can keep increasing your fitness and strength without having to pause.
In the later weeks, you advance your strength and experience the benefits of exercise with a third burnout, lap-based supersets, and additional challenge workouts to test your progress.
Train with PWR Zero Equipment when you can't get to the gym
I know that there are times when the gym isn't an option. That's why I have designed a no-equipment training program for the PWR Community. There are ten weeks of no-equipment training in PWR Zero Equipment that you can use if you are a fitness beginner, or you just don't have access to any gym equipment and want to maintain your fitness.
Remember, when choosing your training program, the type of exercise that's best for you is the one that you enjoy!
Switch from PWR to PWR at Home (or vice versa!)
There are many similarities between the programs, which you can read about in my blog post PWR vs PWR At Home! This is very much intentional (I wanted to keep my PWR at Home program as close to my gym-based program as possible!) and makes it so easy to switch between the two.
You could also choose to do PWR at Home workouts if you’re traveling without access to a gym or simply want to work out at home one day a week.
Change your surroundings
A change in your surroundings doesn’t need to be huge.
If you’re following my PWR at Home program, perhaps you can workout in a different area of your home, which is flooded in natural light and full of fresh air to spark your senses.
If you’re following my PWR program and working out in a gym, perhaps you can visit the gym at a different time — and in turn, work out alongside a different crowd.
Up the ante
Upping the ante of your PWR workouts can be a great way to push yourself that little bit further and mix things up beyond your regular workout.
Can you lift a heavier weight? Can you smash through some increased reps? Can you complete three burnouts?
Remember, you are stronger than you know!
The trick here is to personalize your goal and keep it relative to you and your own journey.
Believe in yourself and what your body can do.
Train with a friend
Why not be PWRful with a partner? Working out with a friend can inject new energy into your workouts!
Not only does working out with a partner keep you accountable and on track, but they’ll also encourage and motivate you to get the most from your workout!
If you have a friend already working out with a PWR program, that’s SO great! That friend is an easy go-to.
Alternatively, maybe you have a friend who wants to dive into something new and could be the perfect weight training pal for you?
Create your own PWR workout
If you’ve got some PWR experience under your belt, why not have a crack at creating your our PWR workout?
You can incorporate exercises you love into the workout, challenge yourself within your limits and feel the incredible sense of accomplishment when you finish slaying! You can include low-impact exercises or no equipment exercises to suit your needs that day.

Little things that can make a big difference
Sometimes little things can make a huge impact.
How long has it been since you’ve listened to some new tunes?
Reinventing your playlist takes only minutes to do, but can have such a MASSIVE impact on your mindset when working out.
If you don’t have a playlist, try my PWR playlist! It will pump you up SO much and excite you as you move through your PWR workout.
Immerse yourself in the PWR community
Out of all the amazing things I’ve accomplished in my career to date, the PWR community is one I hold close to my heart.
If you haven’t yet immersed yourself in the PWR community, I would really encourage you to do it.
It’s amazing to see so many women support each other and this can have such an impact on your PWR journey!
From sharing your goals and progress, keeping each other accountable, to relishing in the love and support, the PWR community is so motivating.
Find the PWR community in the Sweat forum, on my Instagram and my Facebook.
