FITera Workout Videos
Thanks for your interest in the FITera Workout Videos! Simply press play on the video below and let’s get started! Note: if this is your first time here, please click the "overview" link below the video.
Overview of the workout videos
Here’s a quick overview of each of the workouts:
- You’ll receive a new workout video (above) every Monday. We suggest doing these workouts every other day (3 times a week). The first time you workout this week, follow the above workout. Then the next time, simply click the “Video archive” link below and choose one of the other workout videos. If you want to workout more than 3 days a week, we’d suggest using any additional exercise days as cardio workouts, such as going for a walk, hike, or bike ride.
- Every workout will be a little different; we’ll continually switch the order and alternate the exercises to "keep your muscles guessing" so that you never get bored or stuck in a frustrating plateau.
- All workouts will use either simple bodyweight exercises, resistance bands, or dumbbells, so they can be done at home, at work, in a hotel, at the park - or wherever you like. Just press play on your computer, laptop, tablet, or phone and follow-along!
- All of the resistance bands exercises can be done with dumbbells, and vice versa - so you’ll only need one or the other. If you don’t have resistance bands, they’re very inexpensive at your local fitness or department store, or even Amazon.com. If you don’t have dumbbells, those are relatively inexpensive too - or you can even use milk jugs (filled with water, sand, or small pebbles) as your "dumbbells".
- If any of the exercises are too challenging, Ken will demonstrate how to make them easier in each of the videos. And if any are too easy, Pam will show you how to make them more challenging. This way, each workout is tailored to your fitness level.
- These workouts are based on the "E2 method" that combines both resistance training and cardio exercise into one extremely effective, time-efficient workout. Click here for a quick video demonstration of the "E2 method". Each workout video will show you the resistance training and cardio exercises to do (and how to modify them to your fitness level).
- With each workout you have the choice of doing 15, 22, or 30 minutes. That is, at 15 minutes you will have targeted all your muscle groups and can therefore stop … or if you’d like a longer workout, you can continue for the 22-minute or 30-minute version.
- We recommend warming up prior to the workout by doing light cardio for 3-5 minutes, such as marching/jogging in place or jumping jacks … and then doing the same after your workout as your cool-down. Then follow the quick 5-minute stretch routine at the link above.

- If the issue still persists, click the gear icon , select "Quality", then select "144p" or "240p" to lower video quality.
