Brooke Burke Shows Off Her Go-To At-Home and Backyard Exercise Moves: Pics

Brooke Burke is the embodiment of #bodygoals. Luckily, she’s also a fitness instructor with the skills to show you exactly how to get your best body ever with easy at-home workout moves that you could also do on a mat at the gym.

The founder of the Brooke Burke Body app recently demonstrated toning moves that get results fast in the backyard of her Malibu, California home. They target everything from shoulders and back to arms, butt, core and legs.

The star, who works hard to sculpt six-pack abs, 47, has always had a fitness regimen. But she understands that not everyone likes exercising as much as she does. So when she comes up with routines for her app, she told Us in December 2018, she makes sure there’s something for everyone. “I’ve found a way to take the time excuse, that element, out of it,” she said. “I can get [my session] done at home, I can get it done in a hotel room, I’m on location… but it’s really specific body sculpting, toning, tightening and lifting moves, and it’s not that challenging.”

She’s a big fan of targeted toning. “Let’s say you don’t want to work your abs this season, or you want to work your booty, or you don’t even like to work out, you want to change your upper body,” she said. “You can get really specific on the app and just choose what you want.”

“I wanted there to be a variety [of exercises], and I wanted everybody to be able to change the way they think about fitness and to make it fun. It’s not boring,” she added.

Burke also likes the idea of providing exercises to do at home because “a lot of people are too intimidated [by the gym],” she noted. “So when you’re at home, you’re free to experiment. I work out with my kids, I work out with my girlfriends.”

Though the physical results of following her workouts will show up in the form of a tight beach body at any age, strengthened muscles and maybe even weight loss, others benefits will be more internal. “I’m all about deepening your self-care, especially when you’re stressed out,” she told Us. “So doing a little something for yourself, you’re going to have less stress, you’re going to have more energy, you’re going to be in a better mood, you’re going to look better, you’re going to feel better.”

Scroll through to see Burke demonstrate some moves you can do in your own home or backyard!

This simple move keeps your butt tight, toned and lifted! For a modification that also works your core, try putting your forearms on the ground in front of you (rather than your hands) as you lift your leg. 

Make it a compound move! With your leg raised, move your upper body into a push-up. As with any exercise, always remember to do the same number of reps on both sides of your body.


Holding a dumbbell in each hand that’s an appropriate weight for your level (Burke is using 8-lbers), start with your arms at 90-degree angles and push up the weights (keeping your arms on the same plane) until the inner ends meet over your head. Return to start and do again. For extra work on your upper back, after returning to the start position, you can sweep your elbows out in front of you so that your forearms meet in front of your face. Move back to start position and do the move again. 


Start by kneeling on all fours. Stabilize your balance, then bring your left knee and left elbow together at the angle Burke demonstrates. Do multiple reps on each side before moving onto the other. This move will work your obliques and glutes.

To strengthen your shoulders at home as you would in a cardio kickboxing class, borrow a couple moves. Here, Burke demonstrates the jab. Pro tip: Be sure to keep your core engaged as you go through your punches.
