You know those people who genuinely love working out? Like, they spend every evening at the gym? Including Saturday and Sunday nights? 😉
I have never been one of those people.
Well, let me rephrase that: I have not been one of those people… until now.
Although I’ve been pretty active during my adult life and regularly work out, to be honest, most of the time I haven’t looked forward to my workouts.
And, believe me, I’ve tried my fair share of different ways to stay active over the years, including running, cycling, rock climbing, boxing, swimming, barre, Zumba, hip hop classes, walking, kettlebells, pilates, strength training, power yoga, and hot yoga.
For the last few years, I’ve had a monthly membership to a yoga studio and then done strength training classes (e.g. BodyPump) a couple of times a week.
Then December 2016 hit. Life was really, really crazy at the end of last year with working a full-time job, running this blog and my side business, planning a wedding in less than 4 weeks, and you know, the holidays… so, spending time driving to my usual fitness studio was simply out of the question. Instead, I decided to use fitness DVDs.
Note: This isn’t a sponsored post, but just know that now is the point where I’m going to start fangirling over Jillian and geeking out about how much I love her workouts. You’ve been warned. 😉
