Fitness is probably one of those things that feels like it’s so intimidating, that doesn’t have to be. And, as many of us have made it our 2023 resolution to get into shape, it can be hard to stay motivated in both fitness or nutrition.
Enter the Sydney Squad.
The Sydney Squad, a group that is run by trainer Sydney Cummings Houdyshell, is a group that has a workout schedule, helps plan your macros, and has so much content for the price of $29.99 with an option to go annual and save. The squad is a group comprised of men and women who all share the same goals of staying in shape. I’ve been a member of the Squad since March 2022, and I am so glad that I’ve joined it.
Sydney Cummings Houdyshell is a coach, NASM Certified Personal Trainer, and a fitness nutritionist specialist with over a million subscribers on YouTube. She posts new workouts everyday, which are available even if you are not a member of the Squad. This is something that I truly love about her. She is more committed to making fitness completely accessible to everyone, whether or not they can afford the membership. Furthermore, Sydney focuses on the health aspect of fitness rather than the numbers. That is something that I truly love about her as well.
The workouts are strength and HIIT (high intensity interval training) based, and focus on building strength and stamina. What I like about her workouts is that you can join if it’s your first workout or your 100th. She had modifications, which I really enjoy. While she has these modifications, she also truly pushes those who are working out so that you can grow.
As I mentioned earlier, being a member of the Squad gets way more than your money’s worth. The biggest value in my opinion, is the community. A health journey can be one of the most isolating things. The group consists of people all throughout the world, all doing the same Sydney workout video that you are doing. There is something that is so incredible about that.
In addition to the community, you get a macro calculator, tons of lives with Sydney herself, discounts, and so much more.
I am going to be honest with you all. I have tried a few different workout programs in the past, and they just didn’t work for me. This one is the one that I honestly love the most. I do not do the full five days of the workouts. On an average week, I do three days of running and three days of HIIT, with one day of active rest, and I feel like that is a good combo for me.
I also just really love Sydney’s vibe. She is one of the most positive people that I’ve met. Sure, I’ve cursed her at the end of the workout when she proposed burpees. But, she’s someone that is truly passionate about the work that she does, and that energy is contagious. This motivates me to actually press play even on my sorest days, because if you know, you know. Just getting started is half the struggle.
And, she makes working out so easy — you can work out from home whenever works for you. No excuses, just work.
I am not sure what my results are, but I can tell you that I’ve grown stronger, and these workouts have been helpful in growing my skills in running. It also is just easy to workout at home versus getting in your car at the gym. So, if you’re looking for a great tool to help you reach your goals, I highly recommend checking out the Sydney Squad.
