Day 9 - Jumping Jacks

Exercise Description
Start by standing upright, feet together with hands by your sides. With a jump, open your legs so feet are a little wider than shoulder width apart. At the same time bring arms above your head so they touch. Jump again back to the start position. Repeat 50 times.

Options & Modifications
Make it easier by taking feet less wide and hands just to shoulder level. Make it harder by turning it into a star jump – open legs and bring arms up on the way up, land in the start position.

Bonus Tip
The further the hands are from the body, (straight arms) the more difficult it is.

  1. Where are these videos that are taken inside a gym filmed? It's so beautiful!

    1. Sparkling Hill Resort near Bernon BC. This is the mountain view. The other side, (infinity pool) has stunning panoramic views of Lake Okanagan...

    2. Wow, are you members? Or did you just approach them and ask if you could film there? It's stunning!!

    3. Obviously I meant Vernon...
      We're not members; the only way you can use the place is as a guest or for a very expensive day use rate, (cheaper to stay a night most of the time!) We were there for an early anniversary couple of days as they had a great deal on, and decided to take the opportunity to take a bunch of pics and videos for the blog. It is an amazing place; high on the edge of the hillside overlooking up and down the lake...:-)
