My Workout Routine — and the Technology That Saves the Fit Day

When’s the last time you did a workout without your phone? No matter if I’m at the gym or out on a run or at home, it’s always with me it seems. Kind of like my workout sidekick, in fact. Here’s some proof:


Hard to run with Kevin Hart and not document it, right? Right.


You clearly can’t take a gym selfie without your phone. Duh.


And we know how awesome workout apps are for getting your fitness on at home! I’m always using my phone or a tablet.

And because I’m not always that coordinated — and have been known to drop a phone or tablet a time or two (oops!) — I am loving Gorilla Glass 4 that provides added protection from drops and accidents to your phones and devices when you’re on the go. (If only they made wine glasses out of the stuff — could have used that this weekend.)

And, boy, oh, boy have my workouts been on the go lately. I’ve gotten into more of a pattern now that the little Fit Bottomed Baby is a bit older (6 months!), but my workouts are kind of here, there and everywhere. Here’s what my workout routine looks like of late!

My Workout Routine

Monday: Lunchtime workout at my gym. Usually HIIT with lots of cardio and strength training. Like this workout:


Tuesday: Active recovery. I’m usually a bit sore from Monday, so I might stretch, do a little yoga or go for a walk.

Wednesday: It’s all about the weather. If it’s good, I’ll go for a run (2 to 3 miles). If it’s not, I’ll do a home workout from a fitness app or a workout DVD.

Thursday: A little yoga and/or a longer walk.

Friday: Back to the Fit Pit over lunch for another intense workout.

Saturday: All depends on how I feel. Maybe an active recovery day with just a short walk or maybe an easy run. For either, you know I bring my phone and its tunes! (And how many times have I dropped my phone while running? Don’t ask because it’s embarrassing. Again, why Gorilla Glass 4 is so darn brilliant.)

Sunday: The husband and I go to the gym again for its Sunday class, which is usually a bit longer and more cardio-based than the weekday classes. Here’s a typical Sunday workout:


It’s a full challenging week, but it works for me because it’s really adaptable to how I’m feeling and how I’m recovering. Which, seeing that the little one isn’t always sleeping well — and therefore neither am I — it’s nice to have all those active recovery days worked in. That way I can really push it when I feel like it, and ease off when my body needs more rest. And my phone or tablet is there with me the whole time.

If you’re like me and your devices go with you everywhere your workout takes you, you’ve gotta check out Gorilla Glass 4. It’s the toughest cover glass yet, and, in laboratory tests, survives up to 80 percent of the time when dropped from 3-feet high. Three feet! Gorilla Glass 4 is especially designed to help improve damage resistance against sharp contact, such as a drop on asphalt, concrete and other rough surfaces — making it the perfect workout companion.

What’s your workout routine like lately? And how do you protect your mobile device during your workout? Corning Gorilla Glass 4 has been used on nearly 4 billion devices from 40 major brands. Is it on yours? Click here to find out. Jenn
