Quick fitness tip: Compound exercises

Let Tony and Michelle help you get fit Totally Fit Radio

Tony and Michelle Myatt, the force behind Totally Fit Radio, provide fitness coverage for SportsMap, including quick hits throughout the week to help improve your health and workouts.

You can develop real strength in a shorter period of time by doing "compound exercises." Compound exercises are multi-joint movements that work several muscles or muscle groups at one time. An example of a compound exercise is the squat, which engages many muscles in the lower body and core, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and even lower back.

Feeling defeated on your fitness journey? Don't sweat it. Hustle over to Dance House Fitness and werkitout™ with Jenny Sanchez and her team.

Dance House Fitness (DHF) just celebrated its three-year anniversary in April and the party is still going.

The classes at DHF reflect the enthusiasm and passion for dance and fitness, but most importantly – the people behind them. The lineup is so EXTRA but so worth it.

DHF opened its first location in Montrose on February 25, 2016, while Jenny Sanchez worked full time in Corporate America. She also taught 20 classes per week for six months. Sanchez and her team later opened a Heights location the following year – now that's HUSTLE.

DHF welcomes all levels, whether you got the moves or can barely turn the beat around. "We allow a space for people to do what they love without any stress," says Sanchez. "When you walk in, you feel a part of something. That's what it's all about."

With confidence in Houston's talent, Sanchez seeks opportunities for the women on her team and inspires others to never give up.

We can all SLAY like Beyonce.
