Exercise is important, but it doesn’t have to be boring or frustrating! These exercise programs are for those wanting to up their healthy lifestyle by not only eating well, but staying active.

Nothing feels quite as good as moving your body in some way, shape, or form. .. BUT moving your body doesn’t automatically translate into gym torture… workouts do not have to be long and grueling sessions of pain and misery. They can be fun, quick, and enjoyable while yielding fabulous results for your state of mind, body, and sense of connection to your body.

Working out takes… well, work. Work can be fun and rewarding, though. That is what we’re going for here, and these exercise programs and resources are designed for just that. Start with what works for you, then adapt them to suit your needs. If you’re like me, you’ll find that you like a whole bunch of different things, and it’s okay to do something different every day. The aim here is to move, and enjoy moving, wherever that takes you.

While keto is not just for women or men, it might be hard to find good keto workout programs for women. The reason this is a problem is that women burn fat and build muscle very differently from men, thus causing problems when trying to find a good exercise program. If you can relate, this keto video is definitely for you!

Strong from home workout program #workout

Many people spend an enormous amount of time chasing after programs they think they “should” be doing, instead of building a plan according to their body’s needs.

To help you build a plan that fits your needs, there’s a totally FREE 3-part e-course you can watch now that addresses Why Most People Struggle To Achieve Their Fitness Goals. In the course, you’ll learn the three common mistakes that hold people back from achieving their goals, the formula for building a fitness plan that’s accessible and right for you, and how to maintain consistency long-term (hint: you don’t need “more” willpower).

Happy Keto Body


  1. This is the clarification I needed on the protocol in Fat Fueled!!! hurrah!!! Thanks Leanne. Also as an aside, does craving fat mean that I’m likely fat adapted. I don’t measure ketones because numbers are triggering but thought you might know this one.

  2. Hi Leanne,
    I go to the gym 2-3 times/week and stay for 2 or 3 classes. The first class is a cardio, consisting of 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes weights/stretching; the second class is 1 hour of muscle conditioning or yoga or fusion (yoga/pilates focusing on core); the third 1 hour fusion.

    I’m really interested in trying Kettlebells! Would it be better for me to do Kettlebells at home instead of the Cardio/Muscle Conditioning classes? And continue taking Yoga or Fusion classes at the gym? I keep reading/seeing online that shorter interval training is better than Cardio classes.

    What is your work out schedule? You are such an inspiration to me Leanne. I appreciate all your hard work and honesty, (and vegan keto recipes!) I am grateful for you:)

    • Awesome – that sounds intense! It really depends on how you feel. Maybe give both ways a try and see how it goes ;)

      Right now, I’m lifting 5 days a week with about 1 day of yoga. I walk every day, as well. I usually go for 3 days of intense working out and 2-3 days of chill, more relaxed working out.

      Thanks for your support, Zada! I’m so happy my content has been helpful <3

      • Thanks for sharing your schedule Leanne! I appreciate that. Lifting is so important.

        I also run 3 times a week (3-5K each time, I’m the Instructor). I’ve decided to leave it for now, (at least until my gym membership expires).

        It seems I’m slowly gaining weight. I usually eat 1 meal. Sometimes adding a small snack, if so within a 4 hour eating window, IF. Any specific really yummy vegan/gluten free/keto recipes you can point me towards? (Other than the breakfast type of porridge/overnight oats/granola.)

        There is some stress in my life, but it’s been there for over a year. Lately it has felt more intense though and it’s basically a waiting game at this point. I’m not sure if the gain is due to stress or muscle gain from all my workouts. Any thoughts?

        Also, do you have a table of nutritional values for veggies you go by? (I’m finding a wide variance of what the net carbs would be , so I’m using a number somewhere in the middle.)

        Have a great long weekend :)

        • No problem! ;) Are you part of the private Facebook group? Your question about weight gain would be fabulous for the group. By purchasing Fat Fueled or The Keto Beginning, you’ll be given access to our exclusive Facebook group where you can receive direct support, resources, and inspiration from myself and over 4,000 members in our growing community. I don’t keep track of my carbs, so I don’t use a guide. Here are all of my vegan keto recipes: I hope this helps!

  3. How do we know if the Leptine is working good or not? Can we have a blood test for it or what are the signs?
