I am a big fan of the Biggest Loser TV show. Unlike so many reality shows, this program really improves people's lives. I've never been obese, but I can relate to the show participants because I have been obsessed with food and my weight before and was unable to make lasting changes without God's help.
I found this DVD online and read great reviews of it. For $10, I figured it was worth a try. A 20-minute workout that could get you shredded? That was for me! I cannot even tell you how close to death I felt the first time I did it. Mind you, I am in good shape! I have been working out 4-6 days a week for a LONG time. And yet this workout had me gargling my heart as Jillian says on the DVD.
Probably the toughest part of the workout for me is it really kicks my exercise asthma into gear because it's high intensity, high impact, and no rest. Those who have never exercised would probably hate it! But if you're in shape and want a quick workout to boost your metabolism and push yourself, I can't recommend this DVD more. The only disclaimer is that she refers to the glutes with the A word, so you'll want to keep the kids from copying her. 🙂
Many wives would be insulted if their husbands brought home a Biggest Loser workout DVD for them, but when mine did recently, I was thrilled. I absolutely love surprises! He got me the Cardio workout which is easier (highly recommend it for you beginners out there). Since I started this workout, I've had several friends give it a try. Why don't you join us and let us know how you like gargling your heart?
