LIVE workout with Amy Leventhal! You need Zoom.

If you can’t make this workout, go to the bottom of this post for an alternative workout.

Hey all this is Sky. We have a special guest instructor today, Amy! Amy founded the Spinning studio that eventually became Alpenglow. I was taking Bootcamp classes with her in Plainfield when she asked me if I wanted to be a cycling instructor. I honestly thought she was joking when she brought up the idea. I was out of shape and never saw myself as the kind of person who could teach fitness classes. I agreed, got trained, and didn’t sleep the week before I taught my first class.

Her asking me to teach literally changed my life and started the chain of events that led to Alpenglow being here today. I’m grateful she asked, grateful she opened the studio, and thought it would be nice for us all to reconnect during these times.

Join her at 11 am for a total body workout.


  • A mat or towel
  • Weights or soup cans
  • If you need modifications or have questions, you can call Amy at 802-595-4699.

This is a doozy! Eat your Wheaties and get after this!


Do this one outside. If you can do this with a partner and have them call the workout to you, then switch.

You’ll need a big heavy book, like a hardcover cookbook/dictionary, or something similar.

Find two markers, it could be your mailbox and the next, or your steps and a street sign, etc. At least 10 feet apart, up to 50 feet apart, depending on how intense/long you want this workout to be. These will be represented as point A and point B.

Numbers represented as 30/15 are options for a higher intensity/modified workout, meaning if you want a higher intensity workout do 30 reps, if modified, 15 reps.
