Recently I found myself on an impromptu business trip. My original plans to stop and spend the night at my grandparents got changed with the addition of another meeting. Now instead of spending the night at their house I would be staying at a hotel. No big deal. Since I was in the middle of the 21 Day Fix Program I would just bring the DVD with me and do one of the workouts that didn’t require weights. Great plan. Until I realized that plan wasn’t really going to work. Thank goodness for Beachbody On Demand. Continue reading “Beachbody On Demand – Workouts That Travel With You”
For many years I was a member of a gym, like ever since high school. And while I’ve always known the importance of exercising and staying fit, going to the gym wasn’t something I particularly enjoyed doing. As a wife and now mom there are just so many other things (laundry, meal planning, grocery shopping, etc.) that need to get done. My husband on the other hand could spend hours at the gym. He loves to workout. Our approaches to the gym were very different. I wanted to get in and out as quickly as possible. Before we had B, spending an entire Saturday morning at the gym was his idea of a good time, not mine. I would anxiously watch the clock and think about all the things I needed to get done before I could do some actual weekend relaxing. It happened to work out perfectly that I was 8 months pregnant when we moved and talked about switching gyms. One of the things we wanted in a new house was a “home gym”- among other things. Luckily, we were able to find a home that met those needs. I prefer working out first thing in the morning so I get it done and over with. Otherwise, I’m tired by the end of the day and full of excuses. With a new baby and an area to workout in at home I told my husband that I didn’t need a gym membership anymore- I think I’m going to try one of those Beachbody programs from the infomercials. You know the ones you get sucked into watching. Whoever produces those does such a great job! I mean why do they draw you in so much?

I recently completed the 21 Day Fix and LOVED it! I’ve done other Beachbody workouts (P90X, Insanity, Brazil Butt Lift, 10-minute Trainer, and T-25) and this is one that I’d been wanting to try for awhile and finally just got it done.
Swimsuit season is right around the corner. What better way to get ready than by getting your rear in gear.
Brazil Butt Lift is, you guessed it, a Beachbody program. Leandro Carvalho, native Brazilian & former ballet dancer, takes you through his signature work-out program which includes cardio, dance and sculpting. You’re not only going to see a difference in your “bum bum” (pronounced “boom boom”) but also in your obliques, legs & arms. Continue reading “Brazil Butt Lift Review”
