Lazy girl workouts burn fat and boost metabolism with minimal effort, energy, and intensity.
My lazy workouts are perfect for busy women, beginners, or anyone that struggles to get motivated to exercise.
Are you a Lazy Girl?
When it’s time to workout, do you:
- Start thinking of a million better things to do to get out of exercising?
- Feel unmotivated, too busy, stressed, overwhelmed, or tired to workout?
- Hit the snooze button a half dozen times and sleep through your gym session?
- Roll you eyes because you don’t like overly-intense workouts or the gym very much?
- Struggle with confidence because you’ve been out of a workout routine, are just getting started working out?
- Feel concerned about knee pain, back pain, or aggravating an injury or causing more inflammation?
If you find yourself answer ‘Yes’ to any of the above, my lazy girl workouts are perfect for you!

THE LAZY WORKOUT STORY
As a fitness and health coach, a lot of my clients struggle with motivation to exercise. I totally get it. Once upon a time I was 40 pounds overweight.
I love food and have a love/hate relationship with exercise. Between my brain injury, battle with depression, and spine injury, it can get really hard for me to get motivated to exercise.
I became a trainer and nutritionist to get fit, healthy, and master motivation so I could lose weight and keep it off. And I did.
Then one day I got in a car accident (not my fault). During the car accident my back was permanently injured. Even though I know better, I struggle to get motivated to exercise, even more now… but as a motivation master (and fitness and health coach) I do it anyway.
While training in the gym one day after my car accident another trainer started calling me lazy because I wasn’t lifting heavy weights.
That day I went all out obsessed finding out how to get fit faster with less exercise, intensity, time, and effort. And I did. : )
That’s how my lazy workouts were born. I started sharing them with my clients and loved the workouts SO much that I shared them on my YouTube channel and they were a huge hit!
They’re by far my most popular workouts ever which led to me creating my Lazy Girl Exercise Program.
Now I’m on a mission to help ‘lazy’ girls like me get better results in less time. 🙂
Lazy Girl Workout
Seriously, this is the ultimate no-excuses workout that burns fat and boosts the metabolism fast. It’s perfect for busy women, beginners and people that struggle to get motivated to exercise.
See me explain and share the Lazy Girl Workout in today’s episode of CCtv.
WHAT IS A LAZY WORKOUT?
Don’t be fooled by imposter lazy girl workouts floating around the internet copying my pioneer approach to fitness. To be truly ‘lazy’ and workout must:
- Be Low Impact – no jumping around allowed
- Only Use Bodyweight or Dumbbells
- Use my Lazy Training Method, strategic combinations of exercises, and my rep count rule. 🙂
How to Do this Lazy Workout
- There are 8 exercises in this Workout.
- Do each exercise until you feel the burn. Once you feel the burn do 5 more. Max out at 30 reps.
- If you’re using weights and it’s too easy (like you could go on and on and on), increase the weight… if it’s too hard (like you’re struggling to get to 10)… decrease the weight.
- Move from one exercise to the next without resting.
- Do each exercise one time to complete one set.
- Do 3 full sets to complete the workout.
- For the best results do this workout one time a week in addition to my Lazy Girl Exercise Program.
Ready to rock? When you’re done, leave me a comment and let me know if you felt the burn.
It only works if you work it, so work it. YOU are so worth it!
If you think this workout will help someone else that’s struggling with motivation, please share it to help another “Lazy Girl”. 🙂
I’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from it from ladies who’ve tried it and really felt the burn (from bed!)
If you work it, let me know if you felt the burn in the comments. I love hearing from you.
Sending you so much love!

Definitely, looks easy! I am going to try it!
I’m going to be honest: I spend most of my time on Pinterest looking at countless workout routines and have seen yours several times. I always start a workout plan but give up because it’s too difficult for my fitness level (I am 5’2″ and 195 lbs–I was 203 lbs not too long ago ?)…I think I’m going to just try combining a few of your workouts with a walking plan. Do you have any breast lifting exercises? I really need help in that area too.
Yep! if you search ‘breast lift’ in the search bar (the magnifying glass in the top bar of my site) you’ll find it. 🙂
What is the cost of this workout plan?

I can’t wait to try it – in bed! Your introductory comments matched my “motivation” – rather, the lack thereof. Lol. Thanks for posting on Pinterest (where I found your link)!
Your.Video was great motivation! Doing this now and everyother day! Thank you!
Awesome work out!!?
I’m glad you like it : )
Wow!! Just tried as my pm workout. This is great!
Yay! I’m glad you like it!! xo
Hopefully this doesn’t sound weird, but where do you get all your cute workout clothes? 🙂 I’ve been looking at some of your lazy girl workouts on Pinterest and I love the bright, fun colors you always seem to wear, particularly the turquoise/light purple/floral stuff. I seem to feel more motivated to exercise if I have fun clothes to wear, but I never know where to look.
Hi! I get 90% of my workout clothes from TJ Maxx and Marshalls. Everything I find there is high quality, reasonably priced and fit me well. Plus, there’s a wide variety of brands, materials, styles, etc. I have a few yoga pants from Lululemon but they were 4 times more expensive than my TJ Maxx pairs… and they don’t last as long. My tops are always random tshirts and tanks. Some are moisture wicking and designed for workouts… others are just regular plain cotton tops. I hope that helps. xo
this is a great answer to those awful days. i think all is covered, but i may throw in some crunches. great for early am or late pm. love it. will do. love the rule of do it til it burns, i agree, and do 5 more. beats counting which i hate. great idea. thanks so much going to go try it right now. i was not in the mood for my regular routine. thanks for the boost
Yay! You’re welcome 🙂 I’m glad you like it
Your workout looks perfect for me since I’m a beginner. Can’t wait to start. Will keep you posted on my progress.
Please keep me posted on your progress 🙂
I’m going to give it a try!! I think I can do this ? Thank you!!
I tried it and I loved it I haven’t worked out in months since my knee replacement but I’m gradually going back to the gym and then at night I do your exercises as well I’m just walking on the treadmill for an hour to start, in the stationary bike for 20 minutes thank you for your lazy go work out !!!!!!!
Thank you. This looks like just what I needed to get motivated. Starting this program tonight.
The list looks great..
Can I know how many repeats of each per day
Looks like just what a gal with a bad back needs – less chance of injury. All but one vertebrae of lumbar spine fused so easy does it…
Yes! I have a bad back, too!
Great easy core workout. Definitely achievable. ?
I found these on Pinterest and I am so excited to try them. I had a baby 6 months ago, but I just learned I have a autoimmune disease that affects my joint and made it that I couldn’t carry around my own body weight after having my daughter. And I just started walking on my own again and I’m so ready to work out. But I can stand for very long and starting with these is going to help me get what I have been wanting to do since my pregnancy
I have been looking for something I could do. I can’t keep up with some of the videos I have and don’t have the energy or time. What you do looks easy to do and is more motivating. I can’t wait to try it and watch some more of your videos!!

I nodded to every point you made. I’m such a lazy girl! After 2 miscarriages, I went on a low carb diet and worked out daily. I got pregnant with in 2m of my last loss. Fast forward 2 yrs now, and I have a very active 2 yr old boy and run a day care. We want another baby and I just can’t stick to low carb and honestly who has 20/30 min or the energy to go for a walk nightly after he goes to bed. Just did this workout and all the leg/an combos killed me! The bridges and arm exercise we’re “easy” and I could do 20/25 each but the others I could only do 10 maybe 15! Here’s to getting fit again!

I try not to be a “lazy girl” but sometimes I really am. Thanks for putting these together!
Me, too! You’re welcome xo CC
This was an exceptionally good workout. Normally I hesitate and never seem to get anything done but your workouts motivate me more than anything else and work better than everything else I’ve tried. I got your Lazy Girl exercise program last week and I love it so much. Thank you for all that you do Christina! You’re the best online Coach ever!
Thank you SO MUCH, Valencia! I’m so happy my work, works for you. I’m so proud of you for working it, too. Hugs and love xoxo CC
Thank you so much for this, Christina! I’ve been in a major funk and this workout was just what I needed to save me from marinating on the couch all day. 🙂
You’re welcome xoxo
Love it. Thank you!
You’re welcome xo
So I just did my first one today and color me impressed! I sweat like crazy and really had to push through that last set but it was great. Going to try a few more days and then go from there. I’ve been at a desk job (mostly) for the last year and a half and am returning to mill work soon, so I wanted something to help me prepare. Thank you!
You’re welcome, Jax. Please keep us posted on your progress. xo
Thank you for these workouts! I’m a beginner (again) with a lot of weight to lose, I also have arthritis in my lumbar spine and knees. I definitely felt the burn and my muscles reminded me just how long it’s been since I’ve worked out, but no problems with my back or knees!
Awesome Julie! Thanks so much for your feedback. If you like this routine you’ll love the Lazy Girl Exercise Program. It has 12 weeks worth of routines just like this one. 🙂 https://www.christinacarlyle.com/lazy-girl-exercise-program/
