Ashley Graham's Fitness Routines Are So Approachable — And Perfect If You're Short On Time
If you've ever waded through the many, many fitness videos on the web, it's probable that you've found yourself overwhelmed at some point, with too much to choose from and trying desperately to find recommendations for where to start. If that's you right now, take a deep breath, because Ashley Graham's fitness routines are here to save the day — and possibly your sanity, too.
The 32-year-old model (who's celebrating a birthday this week) has long shared tidbits and snapshots of the workouts she loves to help her stay strong, healthy, and clear-minded. In 2019, she started a YouTube workout series called Thank Bod, and on Instagram, she frequently posts videos of her and celebrity trainer Kira Stokes getting their sweat on. Luckily, Graham has continued to share her fitness routines throughout quarantine, posting fun IGTV videos and a whole new season of Thank Bod with workouts developed by Stokes.
Though every video is full of great moves, that's not the only reason Graham's fitness routine is a great one to copy; in addition to being fun and easy to follow, the model also makes it a point to emphasize that working out can be an act of gratitude for your body, instead of a punishment — a refreshing message that can be hard to find in the fitness world (online or otherwise).
If you're looking to give your quarantine fitness regimen a refresh or just find a few videos to help you get started, keep scrolling — the best hits from Birthday Girl Graham's workout routine are ahead.
