OK, so it’s January. How is that New Years Resolution going? Have you found a fitness product or workout routine that you love? Variety, I believe, really is the spice of life. I like have different things to do on a regular basis, and that includes my exercise routine. If you are bored with yours, want to add in a little something for variety, or just want to try something new (or maybe get going on that resolution!) – do I know where you should look!
Total Fitness DVDs has a little bit of everything- which translates into something for everyone! (Yes, even you) There are so many fitness options, it’s nuts! Trying to narrow down what to try is both fun and a bit mind-boggling, LOL. (And they have a good promotional even going on right now, too!)

But I did find a fun one! Anyone who wants to try a fun workout, that is interesting, different, and something you will look forward to doing- this is one for you! I love Pure Barre Pershing Square 2 DVD, by Carrie Rezabek. Total Fitness DVDs has some really fun and interesting workout options- I have never heard of this one!- and when I got the chance to do a review of Pure Barre, I was super excited! I am not graceful, I am not (and never have been!) a dancer or enrolled in a dance or gymnastics class.
And, let me state this- IT IS REALLY HARD! Not because you need fantastic dance moves, or hard in the way that you will not want to do it, but it will definitely make you work. Like- the next day? I was sore in places I didn’t remember that I had, and I found myself muttering unkind things at the instructor under my breath as I went through the routine (hehehe). I also must confess- I didn’t make it all the way through the first time. But you know, I kept at it- and I did get though it after the third try. I am not going to hurt myself or kill myself over losing weight or getting “fit”- you can’t get fit if you can’t move, LOL!
I’m not in the best shape (I used to be a competitive athlete, and I was a paid model at one point long ago and far away!) but I know I can get there. Pure Barre definitely made me work- but isn’t that it’s “job”?
I do really like it. I posted a few times on Facebook and Twitter about how it is going- and if you are followers there, you know that I’m loving it! It’s hard, but so far it has been one of my favorites. I also Bookmarked “Total Fitness DVDs” for future use- they have such a great selection, and I know I am going to want to shop there the next time that I am on the lookout for a new “something” to get me moving!

As much as I love my Little Man, I hate my “Body by Baby”. And he’s not a baby anymore! My “baby” is 3. So I need to move it, and get my body back! I know I will not be 17 again- and that’s cool- who needs the acne? But I do miss my favorite jeans, my cute tops and dresses, and not having quite so much arm jiggle. Ladies (and gentleman)- take charge of your body! It’s not always going to be easy, or even easy to make the time. But YOU ARE WORTH IT! You will feel better about yourself, you will feel better physically- and you will be healthier for your family. You can do it!
