My Weekly Workout Routine: Catt Sadler

Working out each week is an act of self-care that helps me stay healthy in body and mind. More than counting reps or obsessing over calories, I’ve learned to approach fitness as an opportunity to better understand and appreciate my body.

Morning Walks and Stretches

I like to start my day with some fresh air and gentle movement. Each morning, I take my dog Lulu on a brisk 20 minute walk around the neighborhood. We both enjoy this quiet time before the busyness of the day sets in. When we return, I do some simple stretches – reaching for the sky, bending side to side, and touching my toes. These activities get my blood flowing and help me feel more awake and energized.

Afternoon Yoga Sessions

On days when I’m not going to an exercise class, I set aside 30-45 minutes in the late afternoon for a home yoga practice. I have a few go-to sequences that include standing and seated postures, backbends and forward folds. Yoga helps me build strength and flexibility while fully engaging my mind-body connection through the breath. I always finish my practice with savasana, allowing my entire body to relax and recharge.

Evening Bike Rides

If I still need some stress relief at the end of the day, I hop on my bike and do a quick ride around the neighborhood as the sun sets. Pedaling as I take in the pink and orange hues filling the sky brings me a sense of peace and contentment. These short evening rides are the perfect way for me to let go of any worries from the day.


What is your favorite workout?

My favorite workout is yoga. I love the combination of physical movement and mental centering that comes with practicing different poses. Yoga helps me build strength while also quieting my mind – it’s the perfect antidote to a busy day!

How often do you work out each week?

I aim to be physically active at least 5 days per week. My regular routine includes morning walks, afternoon yoga sessions 2-3 times per week, and short evening bike rides when I need some extra relaxation.

What motivates you to keep working out?

More than anything, focusing on how working out makes me feel mentally and emotionally motivated me to keep doing it. When I exercise consistently each week, I have much more energy, patience, and sense of inner peace. Working out is an act of self-care that allows me to be my best self.

Do you follow a special diet?

I don’t follow any particular diet plan. I focus on eating plenty of whole, unprocessed foods like fruits, veggies, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts and seeds. Making sure my diet includes a colorful variety of plants gives me all the nutrients I need to power my workouts and activities.

What advice would you give someone wanting to start working out?

My advice would be not to worry about having a perfect routine or plan right away. Start by simply going for a walk or trying some gentle stretches. Pay attention to how moving your body makes you feel mentally and emotionally. Let your inner wisdom guide you toward types of movement that bring you a sense of joy and vitality. Trust that consistency will come naturally when you connect with exercises you truly enjoy.
