Chloe Ting - a name you have probably heard of, either from a friend or on social media. She created a series of at-home workout videos on YouTube which included different challenges, routines, and schedules. She became very popular over quarantine because people (including myself) were bored and in desperate need of a way to release all that pent-up energy.  

I did the two of the Chloe Ting challenges over the summer and actually survived. My friends and I even made a fun game out of it and did some workouts over Zoom together. We all felt a sense of community and were able to encourage each other during the workout. The first challenge I did was the two-week shred and it was TOUGH. It was the first workout schedule I had ever followed and I liked the routine of it. She had a schedule for the whole two weeks, which I enjoyed, because I liked knowing what I would be doing each day. This workout in particular did not have a specified time of the day when you had to complete it, so I appreciated the flexibility so that I could do it when it best fit my schedule.  She included two of what she called “active rest days,” where we didn’t have a routine to follow, but she still encouraged us to be active, and those days were something to look forward to!  

On active rest days, I spent some of my day either going on a walk around my neighborhood or playing tennis. The workouts ranged from toning abs and arms to whole body workouts. I muted her video and put on my own music, which made the time go by faster. Each day lasted anywhere from 10-50 minutes. I definitely noticed results and felt more toned by the end of it. 

The second challenge I did was the 25 day Slim Thigh Challenge. This one was all about legs. To me, it was a little easier than the ab challenge because I don’t like cardio and this one had less of it. These videos also ranged from about 15-40 minutes. 

Overall, I am glad I did it and held myself accountable. I’ve never been one to work out every day, but I am glad I got into the habit because I felt healthier and like I was accomplishing something, even while being stuck at home. I would for sure recommend trying it out, you never know what might happen after two weeks or 25 days!
