I’m a firm believer it doesn’t have to cost a fortune to get in shape!
While I’m a runner by heart, sometimes it’s just too difficult to make it out of the house for a run or to the gym. So while this doesn’t have much to do with couponing, I thought I’d share my “go-to” workout with you. Chances are, some of you have heard of it before or have even done it before!
Yup…it’s the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels! Right now it’s just $7.99 at Amazon. PLUS, when you buy it, you’ll ALSO get the Video on Demand version for FREE! This means you’ll be able to watch it workout right away from your Amazon account.
Here’s another tip. If you’re a Comcast subscriber, you can head to On Demand, then select Health & Fitness, and then Exercise TV, and then Jillian Michaels. The first 30 Day Shred workout is actually available in its entirety! Give it a go, see what you think.
Here’s why I love this workout:
- It’s fast. The video consists of three 20-minute workouts.
- It requires minimal equipment. Just some handweights and a mat are all you need.
- It works. I did this workout for the first time in December of 2009 and lost 10 pounds the first month. And this without crazy dieting or anything.
My Results on the Shred
I can’t believe I’m sharing this with you, but I heart this workout so much that I thought I’d share the transformation I underwent last year primarily doing this workout. I also added some running in after a couple months. The “before” picture was taken early Dec 09 and the “after” in early April 10.
So there you have it! 20 minutes a day, drinking a bunch of water, and adding in a few runs! This was a total weight loss of about 17 pounds and went from a size 12 to a size 8. The last month or so I’ve not kept up with working out like I should. I just re-started the Shred yesterday, so if anyone cares to join me, please do.
