Personal Fitness Challenge...Weigh In Now!

I've decided to take on a personal fitness challenge for these reasons.
  1. Although, I am a petite person I have a muffin top that is proportionate to my frame.
  2. I really need to integrate any form of physical activity into my life.
  3. I've been watching fitness infomercials for the last 3 hours.
Each infomercial makes one ludicrous claim after another about weight loss, body shaping, and major life changes. I'm going to try one and test the results. I'm asking for you to weigh in on which program I should test.  I am committing to do the following for the fitness plan selected:
  • I will commit to the timeframe of the program.
  • If there is a nutrition plan, I will follow it. 
  • I will report on a weekly basis, weight/inches lost or physical changes.
  • At the end; I will post before/after pictures and report if the infomercial was a hoax or not.
Each program costs $60 and has a money back guarantee, so there's nothing to lose! Without further ado, here are the infomercials that had me at "Order Now!"



Zumba

  1. Hey Julia!

    I did my first Zumba Class last week and it was fun! I was definitely out of breath and sweating. I did feel like it was more of a dance class. I have guest passes to the gym if you ever want to come try it out! I go to Fitness Works. There is one on Gilbert & Queen Creek and one on Higley & Baseline.

    I bought the Turbo Jam dvds last year. I have them if you want to borrow them. I hardly ever do it. I get confused and end up sitting on the couch eating a cookie and watching them exercise. And the music is totally cheesy. :)

    If you're looking to tone, I know lots of people have had success with P90X. We have those too. I like to sit on the couch and watch my husband do it. :o) Yeah, I can't seem to exercise when there is a couch in the room! I need to go to the gym! It's was beautiful out this morning...I'd love to start walking if you want to!

    Good luck! And I think you look great, by the way!
