Workout Video Comparison and Healthy Human Product Feature

Anyone who knows me, knows I can become rather impatient when working out. Like most people, if  I'm running or working out I would love to see results immediately. But, we all know that is not reality, otherwise we'd all be fit and in shape.

However, despite not being able to achieve immediate results, there are things you can do to maximize the time you do spend working out. Running alone was no longer resulting in weight loss for me. So, I  began to incorporate different workouts along with my running to achieve greater results. 

Being a stay-at-home mom, it's not always practical to pack up and go to a gym, so I've been trying Fitness videos both purchased and free.

Here's what I have found so far:



Body Beast by Beachbody
This was a purchased video

This is an intensive weight lifting workout video that is set up to achieve maximum results in 90 days. With this program, I received a Body Beast DVD, a 90 day workout schedule and the Book of Beast that offers tips, suggestions & recipes. 

I was really attracted to this program initially because a stay at home mom was part of their infomercial and she said she was able to do this workout with a little one running around, which was exactly what I was looking for.  I also needed a program that did not require a ton of equipment because there's only so much stuff you can haul into your living room.  I also was looking for a weight lifting program that easily go along with my current running. 

I'm in the middle of my second week of this program. So, I still have quite a ways to go. I follow the included workout schedule as designed to a "T." This video is structured like every other workout video you've ever seen, but if you are able to over come the sheer annoyance of the talking on the video, the exercises are really good.  During my first week, I could barely lift my arms or walk, but it has progressively become easier, so I know I am getting stronger. I have also noticed slight toning in my appearance, so I am encouraged to continue the program.  After going through the program 2 weeks, I did decide I would do my own ab and cardio workout. This program just did not push those areas enough.

Body Beast by Beachbody Overall Summary:
Positives
Great workout program
Ability to challenge yourself
Results definitely noticeable in a short amount of time
Not a lot of equipment needed

Negatives
Typical annoying workout video
Geared more towards men



Fitness Blender
Free on YouTube

I was so excited to find fitness blender on YouTube. Not only is it free, but there are no fancy gimmicks and it's not the typical annoying workout video. 

You're able to choose from hundreds of workouts based on how you are wanting to work out. They have specific muscle group workouts (like abs), yoga, Pilates, cardio. They also offer the option of no equipment workouts.  

I can't speak highly enough about fitnessblender.com and I highly recommend it. They have something for everyone even if you're in a hurry. And, it's easily accessible so you can do it anywhere.




When doing workouts of any kind staying hydrated is very important. My friends at Healthy Human sent me the 20 oz Cruiser Tumbler and 21 oz Stein Water Bottle to try. Can I say these are by far the coolest beverage containers I have ever had?!?

My husband and I got so excited as we were unpackaging the Cruiser Tumbler and the Stein. It was so easy to tell the quality of this product just by the touch and sight.  These are a durable product. 



The Cruiser Tumbler
The Cruiser is great for water, tea,coffee, wine, beer, juice, smoothies, soup and can be used  everyday at the gym, office, for travel, School, sports... just about anywhere.

The Cruiser is fantastic. I put ice water in it around 2:00 in the afternoon and the same ice was still there at bedtime. I love not needing to refill the ice and having a cold beverage ready and waiting.
