Hello beautiful! How is your weekend going? I want to tell you about this new workout DVD which is sculpting and toning me up like no other! A few weeks ago I was looking into different Pilates studios in the city, but they were all so expensive! I used to go once in a while, but paying $15-$25 a class is a little steep if you want to do it regularly. So I went online and literally googled "best Pilates DVD" and I came across something even more amazing! I discovered the Tracy Anderson Mat Workout DVD, and I had seen her many times on TV training different models and celebrities (and she's also been featured on E! News a few times).
I've been to hundreds of different workout classes with different instructors, and her workout is definitely in my top 3. Plus it's on a convenient DVD and I bought it for $9.99!! That is just crazy. I like her's especially, because she emphasizes on lean long muscles, and her workouts wont "bulk" you up since she's constantly changing the moves and making you use every muscle you can think of. You will look like a lean dancer! And I can already see some really nice definition in my abs and arms.
It's important to remember however, as with any workout - you have to keep switching it up! Otherwise your body will get used to it - so it won't have to "adapt" therefor you won't get results. So I'm going to continue with her DVD but switch it up once in a while with different workouts - like my Brazil Butt Lift which I still love :)
Below is a picture of all my workout DVD's. I used to just do the Brazil Butt Lift and The Firm but now I've branched out and am trying new workouts like the Tracy Anderson one as well as Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown. I've only tried that once so I can't give you a good opinion on it yet, but if it's good I will let you know! DVD's are great during these colder months because you can do it right from your home without having to bundle up to go outside :)
For those of you who may be wondering how often I do these DVD's, I try to do one every other day and of course always trying to keep active during the day is a must! If I'm really busy or just don't have time, then I don't stress myself about it but just try to walk more or take the stairs instead of escalators / elevators.
A tip I have for working out at home is, if you have the possibility to (have the house to yourself or have your own room), work out in just a sports bra and little shorts or undies in front of a mirror so you can see yourself moving. It's good to see your muscles working, and what exercise makes what muscle move - it's good for self awareness & getting to know your body!
Do you guys have any favorite workout DVD's? If so, share below! It's always fun to hear from you and know what you guys are interested in as well :) XOXO
