    We are very excited to welcome you to the first day of our free 5 Day Workout Challenge. As of August 2014, (a small husband and wife team of just two) has now accumulated over 400 free full length workout videos and over 17 million monthly viewers. To celebrate how far we've come in the last 5 years as a "small" and worldwide business, we've worked to bring you a special edition 5 day workout challenge, and we're sharing it for free.
    Find all 5 days of the workout challenge here (-once they're all live! The challenge runs from 8/18-8/23, andwe are going to do our best to push the workouts live the night before so that they'll be ready for you, wherever you are in the world!)

    Day 1 of the Fitness Blender 5 Day Workout Challenge is focused on fat burning high intensity interval training, and lower body strength training. Everything you need for today's workout is in one video; warm up, HIIT cardio, strength training, and a cool down and stretch. The 5 Day Challenge is suitable for almost all fitness levels; beginner, intermediate, and advanced. All throughout the program we willl be giving you simple modifications to make all of the routines both easier, and much more difficult.

    If you don't have dumbbells, you can always get creative and use another kind of resistance (resistance bands, a backpack full of books, water bottles, etc).
