It's not that I need to lose weight. I really don't "NEED" to. Sure I would like to, but don't feel like I am overweight - just not at my ideal weight. Really though, I want to firm up, and most of all just want to feel better. I know my shoulder (which ALWAYS ALWAYS hurts) doesn't seem to hurt that much after exercising for a month every day.... now if I would just continue - I've only made it past 1 month once.
I was pretty excited to try My Trainer Fitness because I am always excited for something new in the Fitness department. I was doing the Jillian 30 day Shred quite a bit, but ya know how you get burnt out after a year of the same thing - yep, I am there.
My Trainer Fitness sent me these awesome cards to review and a hook (like the ones used for rock climbing kind of) to hook all the cards togther. I love this hook because it makes them much more convenient to carry around!
The cards explain everything so that ANYONE can understand. Really my 9 year old could totally get it! I got the HOME version and it talks about the Guidelines for choosing weights, how to use the book, instructions for each workout, etc. There are cards for Day 1 - Day 6 that have your workout set out for you 15 minutes of the workout is described on the front of the card, and 15 minutes on the back. It also has pictures of the workouts on the bottom so if you don't understand what a "Chest Fly" is then you look at the pictures so you know how to do it. On Day 7 you rest but there is still a card! This last card described tips on your form, which I know are great for me because I know that form is just as important if not more than how much you do! I mean, Quality over Quantity right?
I love these workouts - they don't make you feel like you are literally going to kill over, but you feel it and it is a true workout. It is hard but not so hard that you don't want to do it, it is just right. I really love these cards and I think they are going to help me get to my ideal weight and help me feel more fit and energized!
The Dirty Truth is MyTrainerFitness has great Fitness programs that you don't need your own personal trainer for! They take all the guess work out of what needs to be done and they lay the whole exercise plan out for you! These cards are great - I don't know that I will use them every day at home for sure because I do like exercise videos, riding bikes, or a good hike sometimes instead. However, I will be using these cards at least every few days and anytime I want a workout outside without going anywhere or anytime I leave town!!!
