If you’re like me, it’s hard for you to rationalize just sitting around watching tv. I can’t do it. I get too antsy even when I know I need rest. But some days, I want to catch up on some of my favorite Netflix shows while also being productive. This created the revelation that I can workout while watching my favorite shows by creating my own workout program. Now, this is not a new idea, and even though I found out I wasn’t as much of a genius as I thought I was, I still decided to create my own workout for all of my top picks.
One of my go-to shows this summer is Gilmore Girls. This is one of those shows where I absolutely did not enjoy watching, but once I started from the beginning, I was hooked! Thank you to whoever created Netflix, because now, I can’t watch a show without starting from the very start all the way until the last episode.
I know many of you probably are watching Gilmore Girls too, so I decided to share with you what workout program I came up with for this show.
