Congrats! You’ve made it to your final week of the Total Gym Summer Body Challenge. Way to crush it! This program was designed to challenge you with a progressive series of workouts that are achievable for all fitness levels and to work towards developing a summer body.

Let’s check in with yourself… Bring attention to how you feel mentally and physically.
• Do you notice a difference in how you perform your strength and endurance workouts, from when you started at week 1 to how you feel at week 4?
• Are your muscles more toned and defined?
• Are your clothes fitting looser?
• Do you feel more confident mentally and physically?

You’ve been on a big 4-week transformational journey that has probably taught you a lot about yourself. Be proud of your wins, learn from your struggles, and never give up on yourself. You are amazing.

Let’s finish this week strong!


During the 4 weeks of summer camp, you will be provided a plan to follow with new routines each week. You will learn and perform a variety of Total Gym workouts that build upon the previous week either by increasing the reps or sets, changing the incline, or advancing the exercises to keep your body challenged.

The challenge includes four weeks of new Total Gym workouts designed to increase your strength and improve your endurance to ultimately achieve your summer body. Plus, you have the opportunity to challenge yourself along the way by incorporating variations of the exercises.


If you have been following along, I hope you’re enjoying the challenge and are starting to see and feel a difference in your body. If you’re just tuning in now, you can get all the important details starting with week 1of the challenge.


Week 1 || Workout 1
Week 2 || Workout 2
Week 3 || Workout 3


A weekly workout calendar is provided to follow and to keep your workouts on track. It contains what type of workout and the exercises you will perform on each day of the week. In the previous weeks, a new set of workouts were provided to keep your muscles challenged. This final week is slightly different. All the exercises you have learned, perfected, and advanced will be combined into 3 new workouts for week 4’s challenge.

Along with the strength days, please incorporate 3 cardio sessions to help you burn more calories, more fat, and helps condition your body quicker. Incorporate core movements on the designated days (see schedule) and be sure to stretch those muscles out!

Please view the video to see a demonstration of the Total Gym exercises for week 4’s workouts.


As mentioned above, our final week of the program brings all the previous weeks together into 3 powerful total body workouts. By now, you should feel comfortable performing the exercises and you have the ability to advance them to keep your muscles challenged.
