We’re already a month into the new year, are you sticking to your New Years Resolution still? If like most of us, you chose fitness as your resolution, there’s a good chance you may already be struggling at this point. Statistics show that a lot of us tend to slack off by February (especially more so when our resolutions are related to health and fitness) and then its a downward slope from there the rest of the year!
I put on weight several years ago and that was when I decided I needed to make fitness a part of my daily routine. A decade later, I’ve kept the weight off and still work out fairly regularly. I get asked how I’m able to workout consistently all the time. What I’ve found is that by sticking to a routine for working out, really seems to help me best. Especially doing it first thing in the morning before you have all day to talk yourself out of it. The other thing I’ve found that works well to sticking to your fitness goals, is changing up the workouts. Boredom is the quickest way to give up on that fitness program. Not only that, but most people don’t realize that doing the same workout over and over will bore your muscles as well, and you won’t get much benefit from your same old workout anymore.
I’ve had gym memberships over the years, but for me, I just found that it saved me so much more time and energy to just workout from home. A lot of us probably chock up the missed workouts to not having the time to do them, right? I know so many of us women lead such busy, hectic lives, even thinking about getting a workout in 3-4 days a week seems like such a daunting task. Even if we do have the time to workout from home, a lot of us don’t want to, or are unable to buy the super expensive treadmills, elipticals, etc.
Well ladies, I have a great solution to all of these problems that are probably keeping you from keeping your resolution to get fit this year! I recently came across the Fe Fit 13 week, 90 Day Workout Program, you can do from home, and it’s completely changing my workouts and fitness routine for the better!
Fe Fit is a fitness program designed to help you shed pounds, build muscle, tone and tighten that body, and it will cost you a lot less than that expensive gym membership this year!
Now I know what you’re thinking, yeah there are lots of dvd workout programs, what makes this one so special? Well, over the last decade of working out from home, you can bet I’ve accumulated quite the library of workout dvd’s and fitness programs, and let me assure you, I can spot a winner when I see one! And Fe Fit is it!
Yep, I’ve used a lot of workout dvd’s over the years and you bet most of them get put on the shelf never to be used again. What I’ve found is that most are two beginner or slow paced. And the ones that aren’t, are usually way too much to keep up with. What I love about Fe Fit is that it a great moderately paced serious of workouts, but they also have great options in each video for the beginner or the more advanced exerciser. This way, you can find a perfect level for each workout.
Also, my other issues with workout DVD’s are that you buy one for $15 and its the same workout over and over. When you do this workout more than once every few months, your muscles and YOU get bored, and you basically start to get absolutely nothing out of your workout anymore and are pretty much just wasting your time. The Fe Fit comes with a whopping 8 discs, that each have over 4-6 workouts on each DVD. You get 28 workouts with this fitness program! Each workout is completely different so you won’t be bored and neither will your muscles and body!
Also, if you’re motivated by tracking progress, you will love that your Fe Fit workout series comes with a 90 day calendar to track your workouts each day. It also comes with stickers you can place on the calendar each day you’ve completed your workout. You can also use the user guide to track your weight and measurements at the beginning of your program, 30 days though it, 60 days, and after 90 days, so you can really see your progress.
Over the last 30 days, I got to try out this workout and really put it to the test. Don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of fitness equipment. You only need a mat, some weights (3 or 5 lbs) a pilates circle (or a ball you can squeeze, that may have lying around your house) a chair, and a resistance band. I happened to have all of these except the ball, so I did pick up a pilates circle for about $10.
On the first day, I took my measurements as well as my aerobic and strength test, which consists of how many pushups, crunches, squats, and jumping jacks you can each do in a minute. Then I popped in the first video and went to work!
If you’re short on time, you will love that the Fe Fit program only requires 30 minutes a day, 3-4 days a week. This is the amount of time each of us should workout in a week anyway, but if you can’t stand long hour long workouts, you will love how quickly the 30 minute workout goes by!
The workouts are completely different each day. After a month long of working out, I have found that most videos incorporate a lot of new moves so you’re muscles certainly won’t get bored. I also learned completely new moves I’ve never even done before to target some problem areas! The programs provide you with a lot of variety. You will even find cardio, stretch, and barre workouts on these dvd’s. I had actually never done Barre before but heard lots of good about them, so I was really excited to try them! Boy, I can tell you, they are a workout, but they feel really good! I also found moves in this program that I had previously only found on really expensive workout programs I had paid over $200 for, for only a couple dvd’s!
I really enjoyed and looked forward to doing my workouts with my Fe Fit program 3 times a week. The instructor in the video is completely infectious and great at motivating you to push through some of the harder, more intense workouts. I love that there is a fitness level for everyone, but you will be amazed at how much of a good workout you get out of these videos. It’s easy to work up a sweat with these dvd’s and I felt sore after almost every workout I did, and I consider myself in pretty good shape! Again, if you’re a beginner and this intimidates you, don’t worry! Each move, the instructor will give you a modified version so it is easier for you to do, until your muscles can adjust and you can work your way up to the moderate level or even the more advanced level!
Over the last 30 days, I have really enjoyed the program and have absolutely loved the workouts! My body feels great, is looking good, and I feel like I’m doing myself some good by getting in new workouts instead of sticking with the same old workout I’ve been doing the last year that is really getting my body no where!
As you can see here, I tracked my progress for the month by adding a sticker every time I completed the workout. I actually found this to be quite motivating for me. I really wanted to be able to add those three stickers each week! I even did a stretch workout this last Sunday to make sure I got my sticker, when I usually always reserve my weekends for relaxation days.
After completing my 30 days, It was time to measure myself and do my aerobic fitness and strength test. I’ll be honest, I thought to myself, this will be a waste of time. There is no way I’ve improved in 30 days, especially since I’ve already been working out regularly for the last 10 years! But guess what ladies? I did in fact see some changes in my body!
As you can see here, I dropped 4 pounds! What?! I didn’t weigh myself all month but I was not expecting that! (Let it be noted that I am at my goal weight and am not looking to lose weight with this program, but to tone my body and get more definition). I started at 140 and was 136 after 30 days! Not only that, but I lost a half inch on my waist and hip, as well as my thighs too! My left bicep also got a half inch bigger!
(*Also, I did not change anything about my eating habits in the last month. The weight loss was solely due to using my new Fe Fit Fitness program!)
I thought for sure the aerobic and strength test wouldn’t show any difference at all, but it did! I did 12 more push ups in a minute than I did when I started the program 30 days ago! I was also able to do 13 more sit ups, 5 more jumping jacks, and 1 more squat!
Well the results pretty much say it all, don’t they?! And that is just after 30 days! I still have 60 days more to go! I can go on and on about this program, because I know you will love it too! It works amazingly well, even for those of you, who like me, have already been working out regularly for years. It is fabulous and motivating, and will not bore you whatsoever, thanks to the 28 different workouts! Each workout works for you no matter what fitness level you are at, and after using it for months or years, you will still be able to push yourself harder. I consider myself a more advanced exerciser but I found I was falling in the moderate category each workout. I still have a long ways to go to get to the more advanced modifications you will find in the Fe Fit Fitness program.
You can also save yourself a ton of money by forgoing the gym membership, and you won’t need expensive fitness equipment to do this program either! 30 minutes a day, 3 times a week, is all you need to achieve the body of your dreams!
I am so thrilled with my 30 day results, I can’t wait to see where my body will be at after 90 days!
Don’t give up your fitness resolution yet! Fe Fit is the perfect resolution to obtaining your resolution this year!
