How Food Network's Amanda Freitag Got Fit

Food Network personality Amanda Freitag, 39, grew up with big kitchen ambitions and an even bigger appetite. FITNESS helped her put her health back on the front burner.
Bridge pose Excuse-Proof Your Workout

Amanda had me make this list of exercises that require no equipment, so I wouldn't skip my routine because of travel or time crunches.

Bridge: Lie on back with knees bent and feet on the floor. Lift hips up so that your body forms a straight line between shoulders and knees. Lower and repeat.

Burpee: Stand with feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart, arms by sides. Lower into a squat and place palms on floor in front of feet. Jump feet back into full push-up position. Jump feet toward hands and then jump up immediately, extending arms overhead. Repeat.

Three-legged plank: Begin on floor in full push-up position (wrists below shoulders, arms extended, and toes tucked under). Lift right arm forward, hold for a count of three and return hand to floor. Repeat with left arm, then lift right leg and then left leg.
