I’m a big fan of working out in the comfort of your own home; it save’s travel time, reduces any self-consciousness and no one needs to see how sweaty you get. We don’t have any big equipment (machinery) in our house like a BowFlex, Elliptical or Treadmill for that matter…though I desperately want a treadmill (that’s a story for another day). I use DVD’s when I work out at home. Why? Let me count the ways (oh dear, I’ve been reading too many kids books after that reference).
1. I can work out when my girls are asleep
2. I can work out when my girls are asleep
3. I can work out when my girls are asleep.
No, seriously… I started thinking earlier in the day that I needed to do a little workout. After tweaking (not twerking) my left thigh last week, I decided to take it easy and rest for a few days. However, my body just needed to do something. It was raining heavily so I didn’t want to take Hilary out in that weather, especially since we are full of a nasty head cold. FUN! So, I decided on Yoga. I would to an easy yoga dvd workout, not the intense Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown that I’ve attempted before.
A little hot yoga for me:
Well, I sure learned a lot in that one hour. First off, I’m not going to lie, I’m terrible at yoga. Second, Yoga was WAY easier when I was pregnant and had a baby protruding out of my belly. Third, Yoga is challenging. I decided that I need to get a beginner yoga DVD if I really wanted to get serious about practicing yoga. It got me thinking………
How much do people spend on work out DVD’s ? What do people actually get out of the work out? Do people use the DVD workout to its full potential or give up after a few attempts?
I loved my Jillian Michael’s DVD workouts and I used them more than I think most people do. I also love having the easy access of a quick workout like Jillian Michael’s or Focus T25. It’s what I have time for. It’s what I am able to commit to as a Mom of two little girls. It’s what get’s me moving when I can’t leave the house unless I want to find a babysitter. It’s easy and if you don’t have a tone of money you can always use a DVD workout over and over again. A little bonus….you can wear whatever workout clothing you want to and no one will laugh at you.
