Let’s just say 2019 has started out BUSY. I finally released my new workout program, Rachael’s GOOD SWEAT, underneath my “Rachael’s Good” umbrella 😉 It feels beyond fulfilling getting it out there and seeing people participate in my workouts– it seriously always makes my day!!
I felt like it was ultimately time to utilize the hundreds of workouts saved in the “notes” section of my phone that I’ve collected over the past few years. Growing up playing sports, working out on my own time in college, purchasing & following a few workouts guides created by other certified personal trainers (ie. Anna Victoria’s 12-wk Fit Body Guide) during my dietetic internship, and making friends / networking with other fitness professionals and getting to train with them, I’ve tried SO MANY different styles of exercise.
This past year was when I really found my own style of workouts that get me excited to hit the gym & train everyday. It keeps me interested and engaged throughout the entire session. And most importantly, it’s helped me become more confident than I’ve ever been in the gym, my own skin, and in life. I’m stronger than ever and have really focused on perfecting my form these past two years training. It makes me proud to see how far I’ve come/my progress and makes me even more excited to share my program with YOU!
GOOD SWEAT GUIDE
My number one goal in creating GOOD SWEAT was to make it as convenient and affordable as possible for most. Instead of selling the entire collection of 10 weeks in bulk (more money up front), I thought it would be much more feasible to release it week by week and allow us all to do the workouts together, #goodsweatguide. They’re $6.99 per week and include 4 workouts total, which comes out to $1.74 per workout. Much cheaper than any type of “class” or personal training session. Of course, those aren’t bad choices! These GOOD SWEAT workouts are just another way to switch up your routine / incorporate something new. It simply takes the thought out of designing your own workouts at the gym since everything is already pre-programmed here in the guide.
I want to make it clear that you don’t need to follow these workouts in order week-by-week (of course, it’s welcomed!!). Feel free to jump in or purchase any week available (they are released each Saturday, one at a time, for 10 weeks straight) to try them out! Maybe you already have a routine you love at home, but you’re going on vacation / a work trip and would love something to help keep you on your game while you’re away. This program is so ideal for hotel gyms since you really don’t need a lot of equipment– and no machines at all!!
I’ve gotten a lot of questions about how suitable GOOD SWEAT is for beginners. Well, my friends, it IS. The good news is that you can modify a lot of the exercises if you need, plus quite a few of the circuits are timed vs. providing you with a specific number of reps to complete. This is great because it allows you to push yourself to YOUR unique max, since everyone is functioning at a different level. If you’re extremely new to exercising on a consistent basis, I recommend easing into it. Modify to suit your own fitness level and take the remaining 3 days I don’t provide you a workout as a rest.
By not using machines, this guide makes it even easier for you to get it done wherever you are! At home, at the gym, traveling, etc. Throughout these 10 weeks, all you’ll need are dumbbells, barbells, and resistance bands, with a yoga ball, bosu ball and medicine ball on occasion. I’ve now begun to announce exactly what equipment you’ll need for the week ahead in the description section of each week before purchase.
Here are some resistance bands I recommend–a set of small bands and a large band.
When you purchase any week, you’ll receive a confirmation email with two downloadable links. These links have a certain number of downloads available before it expires, so make sure to save to your devices before you get locked out! *Each time you open the link it counts as a download.* If any issues arise, please email me at [email protected] and I can regenerate downloads for you 🙂 I suggest first saving to your computer so you’ll always have access, then to your phone in your iBooks app, or other device. I’ve also already seen people printing out the weeks and bringing with them to the gym in its own folder with laminated pages… I die for that!!!!
GOOD SWEAT combines HIIT and circuit training with strength and compound movement to help you get stronger and build endurance while challenging yourself and finding your fitness groove. The workouts range anywhere from 20-60 minutes, with most being around 30 minutes (excluding your 5-10 recommended warm-up).
It’s here to encourage you to move, treat your body right, and stay motivated in a supportive community. Working out shouldn’t be a chore. It should be something to look forward to each day to feel stronger—both mentally and physically—and more confident in your own body. These are literally the exact workouts I do on the daily and we’ll never complete the same workout twice!
If you ever have any questions about the program or issues with your purchase, don’t hesitate to email the team!!

- Is this an app?
- No, GOOD SWEAT is a series of PDF’s that are sent to your inbox. You save them to your devices and can keep forever!
- Is this program good for beginners?
- Yes! Modify to suit your own fitness level. A lot of the circuits are timed, allowing for you to push YOURSELF as hard as you want to go!
- If I don’t have that much equipment at home, can I still do the workouts?
- I recommend investing in a set of small bands, one large band, dumbbells (lighter set and heavier set), and a medicine ball! (*all linked above) If you have these items, you can definitely get through the guide, and are able to modify the exercises that ask for alternate pieces of equipment.
- Do I have to buy each week in order?
- Definitely NOT! I created these guides for YOUR convenience! There is no subscription and you’re able to jump in whenever you’d like to try out GOOD SWEAT. You do not need to purchase each week in order, nor do you need to complete the individual workouts in order throughout the week. They are there to spice up your exercise routine and provide you with easy-to-follow circuits that will definitely get your heart rate pumping and hopefully motivate you to want to workout / move your body on the daily.

Completed my first week of good sweat and I LOVE IT. I feel so good, better then any other program I have followed. Since I don’t have to use gym equipment, I’m able to do it all in my garage with the equipment I have. Can’t wait to start week 2!! 😊
This guide is AMAZING! Love the convenience of it and how it keeps me coming back for more! I’m excited to do each workout and the perfect amount of sore the next day! I purchased BossBabe workout before, and I would recommend goodsweat over it any day! Love getting the email notification when the next week is ready, and love how I can take the workout anywhere, since it’s on my phone!
I’m on my 3rd week of Rachael’s workout guide and I’m OBSESSED!! I honestly have never felt really comfortable or like I can do the kinds of workouts that she has me do. Although I’ve really come into a new sense of empowerment by working out to her good sweat guide! I feel like though I lack a history of “gym life” I’m just as capable as anyone! Whatever level you’re at I encourage you to try her workout guide👏🏽 I’ve never been so happy to feel sore the next day because I know I put in werkkk!!
I absolutely love these workouts. They’re intense and efficient! I feel so strong and I have one purchased week one and I’m so excited to buy 2,3, and almost week 4! Thank you, Rachael, for creating your program!
Just finished week one… amazing. So convenient, and the brief instructions next to the circuits set you up for success. I feel great and my whole body is definitely feeling it! Very excited to see how I look and feel after doing the additional weeks!
I’ve never bought a workout guide, so I was a bit uneasy about getting this one- however, being that each week is SO cheap (about the cost of one Starbucks drink), and the fact that I LOVE 💗 all of Rachel’s content- I said f$ck it. Still on week one and I can honestly say it has been kicking my ass. I recently started working out again and so far I can say I am very happy with my purchase 😁!
Just finished week one! I am a flight attendant and these are great work outs on the go and for hotel gyms! I’m so excited to add this into my routine in my weekly work trips! Thanks so much!

I have LOVED doing Rachael’s workouts over the last 3 weeks. I was a gymnast for 16 years and find myself getting bored with other workouts designed by bloggers online. I am far from bored! I am excited to go to the gym because I know I am not going to be there for hours (usually takes 45mins-hr depending on how much I do before) but I am going to get a real GOOD SWEAT in ( I’m averaging about 450- 500 cals a workout). I was snowed in last week and then went on a trip and was able to modify and complete a couple of them from home/my hotel. It’s also pretty easy to modify what’s challenging and increase intensity when you want the extra push. I love that it’s full body and gives my heart rate a good spike. Can’t wait for more!

I have just completed week three of the Good Sweat Guide and it’s awesome! I have already noticed results! This guide has really pushed me to get back to my toned self and makes me work out. Thank you Rachael! You are awesome!
I have completed week one and week two, and literally just purchased week 3 to start tomorrow. I LOVE this workout guide. I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys working out regularly, and to anyone just starting out. It is the first time in a long time that I get excited to get up in the morning to do my workouts. I have been looking at week 3 already and I can’t wait to get it started. Thank you, Rachel! Your Good Sweat program is AMAZING! Also, I work out at least 5 times per week and I feel sore each morning since I started this guide, which has not been happening lately with my other routines….I love it!
Sorry for the auto correct on your name, Rachael.

Rachael’s Good Sweat Guide has become an intricate part of my daily and weekly routine – a part that I very much look forward to. I feel stronger, physically and mentally, after just three weeks completed. I highly recommend this program to anyone, no matter your fitness and experience level. With every work out I feel challenged and I always leave the gym having had a GOOD SWEAT! 😉 I freakin’ love it! Thanks, Rachael!
Rachel’s sweat guide is amazing!! Easy to follow and quick for someone with a busy schedule. 🙂
I have been loving these workouts!!!! I love the dedication and time Rachael put into designing these, it really shines through each week. They are super challenging and I can already tell I am getting stronger!! I am so happy with these and love that Rachael is doing them with us!! 🙂
I love how each day is a full body workout yet there is still such a variety of exercises! I was looking for something to switch up my routine and you nailed it, thank you so much!
Finished my first week. Quite hard (because I am finally back to the gym after a long “vacation” :)), but really loving them! Thank you, Rachel <3
I started on week 2 and I really love the workouts. No matter how tired I am before I start, I just do it and feel great afterwards. I don’t have to worry about my routine every day because Rachael did it for me 😊. You can make it as hard as you can and push yourself with every excercise. My whole body hurts every day, “hurts so good” and it feels amazing.
Hopefully week 9 won’t be the last.
Thank you Rachael!!!
I started doing Rachel’s workouts from her instagram videos, and I started to love going to the gym again. (As in, I haven’t been enjoying it in like years…) I love these workouts because they feel effective, make me feel strong, and are FUN!!! I purchased the first week of goodsweat and I now have a PLAN of what to do at the gym. Before I would flop around on the treadmill and wander around the gym not knowing what to do. Now, I have a plan of what to do and I honestly have so much fun and feel more confident at the gym. Would highly recommend!
(Also I’m from Seattle- so that is amazing. And Rachel’s food Instagram is one of my faves. Overall, she is awesome!)
I love doing these work outs because I can do them at the gym or at home so I have no excuse not to get it done. When I do go to the gym, I like having a plan and feeling accomplished! I’m in the middle of week 4 and I’m already feeling stronger.

Ok so I have been following Rachael forever & was so stoked when she came out with the Good Sweat Guide! I also had just found out I was pregnant when it first came out but I bought the 1st week anyway and it was awesome. What’s great is you can take her moves and modify if needed which is so helpful being prego! I just bought week 10 and can’t wait to try it out. I am so glad I have this program to do throughout my pregnancy! Thank you Rachael! 🙌🏻❤️
Like everything this girl does her fitness guides are NOTHING short of amazing. I’m so stoked to be back in the gym with a routine that I’m stoked about. Talk about a good sweat, get ready for the best work out 🙌🏼
