Exercising at the airport (video post)

Thu, Nov 4, 2010



Im not traveling.

I totally had the chance to git away but motherhood made that impossible. Le sigh. LE SIGH.

Many many of my Peeps, however, are jetting around & lamenting the busy days and lack of exercise opportunities.

Lament no’ mo my brothers and sisters in fitness.

I give you The Tornado’s Airport Waiting Area Workout Routine (A.W.A.W.R.).

(Filmed on the proverbial down-low so as not to attract airport security…)

Please to enjoy:

    Dare me to do it??

  2. Helen says:

    I love how you exercise and fit your daughter into your routines and not exclude her.
    I know you’re being silly here but you know what I mean.

    Next time ask security to join in!!

  3. Meredith says:

    OMG those lunges in the first video are classic.

    I love you and your girl.

  4. Toni says:

    This is my new fave over the grocery store workout, Miz.

  5. Erica says:

    hahahhahaha- this is almost as good as your supermarket workout video :) Loving the wheel barrel action. Too cute

  6. Lea says:

    Where are the tutus? :)

    You must do a workout video for kids, Carla.

    Fun stuff on the go!!

  7. Heather @ Not a DIY Life says:

    Love it! And I thought of you when I was grocery shopping yesterday. I totally did a few bicep curls with the gallon of milk!!

  8. Teresa says:

    What is the grocery video?

  9. dragonmamma says:

    Amazed you didn’t have security on your case. Looks like terrorist activity to me.

  10. anne h says:

    How fun is that - I’ll have to try this one!
    It’s sure to get me kicked out, eh?

  11. Tracey @ I'm Not Superhuman says:

    So cute. At least you gave fellow travelers something else to watch during the boring wait for the flight!

  12. Joanna Sutter says:

    I bet you two make good people watching in air ports. ;-) I do a lot of stair running when I have time to kill in airports…but rarely wheel barrels.

  13. Amber says:

    You read my mind Mizzy!
    We are heading to Disney this weekend ;)

    I will do and film!!

  14. Carrie says:

    Carla, this is the best. I am forwarding it to Rich. He says try to workout wherever you can. You set such a good example. LOVE it!

  15. courtney says:

    Oh! This makes me so happy. I love the lunges! It’s so awesome that Tornado gets to join in the fun wherever you go! Yay!

  16. Jody - Fit at 52 says:

    There is always a way! Who cares what others think & maybe some will join in!!!!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the videos!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Susan EB Schwartz says:

    hysterical but also inspiring.

  18. Greta says:

    That is too cute!!! You’re a freaking animal. I want to be able to do lunges like that! So awesome that your daughter is encouraged to move with you!! She seems like she’s having a blast!!

  19. Irene says:

    We are driving down 21 hours to Orlando in 4 weeks. I plan on doing a short workout during every stop. I promise to film it too.

    You and the tornado are so incredible.

  20. Ren Man says:

    What is even more hysterical is the crazy stripper-looking woman wearing leopard-print everything and a full face of makeup at 8:00am who was sleeping on the floor on the other side of those chairs!

  21. Eliza says:

    Chair pushups? Why did I never think of that!!!

  22. Eliza says:

    Oh and hope you brought Purell for after.

  23. Laurie says:

    brilliant idea

  24. Natalia says:

    I love it!!! :) Awesome, awesome!

  25. Pure2Raw twins says:

    Thank you thank you for letting me know about these videos! Love them! I will try some of those exercises out during my travel ;) Thanks again! You are the best!

  26. Sarah says:

    Reading this at airport on my way to foodbuzz!!

  27. Patrick says:

    A.W.A.W.R…. sounds like the sound I make when trying to bust out that last push up. Or maybe that is the sound you hear of me jogging on my blogs video today.


  28. Yum Yucky says:

    Excuse me, but I think Tornado’s form is slightly better than yours. :P

  29. Miz says:

    indeed. The student hath surpassed the teacher.

  30. debby says:

    There’s just no excuse not to exercise, is there!

    Oh, the wheelbarrow-I used to love doing that as a kid. You’re a good mommy, Miz.

    Oh, and a new Two Fit Chicks-I’ve been waiting for a new episode!

  31. messymimi says:

    If you don’t mind what a bunch of strangers think (and usually I don’t, I won’t be seeing these people ever again), you can exercise almost anywhere, in some fashion.

  32. Lance says:

    Love it Miz!! Your approach to fitness just ROCKS!!

  33. Tom says:

    Old school WHEELBARROWS!!

  34. Katie says:

    This post gave me the biggest best laugh ever!! My favorite is when Tornado is doing dips, but she’s too little!! AHhhhahaaaahahahaaah1!!!!

  35. charlotte says:

    Wheelbarrows in an airport! Brilliant! Now if only I could find someone to hold my feet next time i have a layover…

  36. Gina Fit by 41 Maybe 42 says:

    Excellent idea — great way to get the blood circulating during all of the waiting around (and keep the mood up).

  37. Michele @ Healthy Cultivations says:

    Echo everyone else that said this is simply epic, classic, etc. I’m so entertained!!!

  38. Dynamics says:

    That sure brings back memories of my dad wheeling me down the street. HA!

  39. Colleen Casey says:

    Now THAT’s what I call dedication! You go girl!

  40. paula says:

    awww, love how you include the little one… very cute. Gosh, there’s no way I can lift my body weight like that. Guess practice makes perfect. I’ll give it a shot. Not at the airport but using my kitchen chair.

  41. Shelley B says:

    How fun! I only exercised on my recent airport trip by walking between stores, shopping. Might have been better off doing some lunges and tricep dips, lol!
