Fitness is always on the top of many New Year’s Resolution lists. In order to keep my fitness goals I started planning out my fitness programs for the year (See my 2016 Plan). Staying healthy requires having a plan. I don’t really enjoy working out so having a plan and a program to follow helps me stay on track and stay motivated.

Life before Beachbody
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.

For all of my dance friends who haven’t danced in a while it’s a great way to get back into dance. Since you’re in the privacy of your own home you don’t have to worry about what you look like.

Here’s a breakdown of what to expect with CIZE. Continue reading “Cize Review”
