I was up late the other night thinking about my workout routines. I have been trying to be consistent for YEARS and always failed. 2014 was a year of change for me, a year of double. Let me share with you why. So I was the girl that would go to the gym and literally stare around asking myself "where in the world am I going to start?" I always felt so out of place and out of my comfort zone. I hated the drive to the gym and couldn't wait for my workouts to be over. I realize that not everybody feels this way, this is just my story, and that is ok. So fast forward to 2014. I joined an accountability group with awesome ladies and felt so right. I just made myself work harder because I didn't want to fail on my commitment to them. I started with Beachbody's 10 minute trainer and that worked well for me. Then I sort of hit a plateau and needed to be pushed more. I actually needed to get my eating under control. That's when I started with 21 day fix after 2 rounds of that I was feeling better and eating even better. I wanted to challenge myself even more and I realized that this was my new lifestyle not just a temporary fix. That's when I signed up as a C O A C H and I started using Turbo Fire I love this program, it is fun and furious. My legs have never looked so good. I am getting ready now to do the 3 day refresh & then try the brand new program PiYo I cannot wait to share my results with you all!
I am all in.
I believe in Team Beachbody but more importantly, I believe in ME!
Anyhow, I was thinking about the reasons why gym workouts failed for me & why home workouts were much better. There are a ton of benefits for either path you choose but these are the benefits for me.
home workout pros:
-convenience (no need to travel)
-24 hour access
-price (I pay once for a workout program & get unlimited use)
-privacy (no weirdo creeper men bothering me)
-accountability (my husband or friends can workout with me & it's free for them)
-being part of a group (we log our before and after stats & share progress with each other)
-no need for a babysitter
-lots of floor space
-no need to worry about sweaty germs from other people b/c all equipment is your own
-one on one trainer (with my videos I have my own personal trainer)
-no volume control (I can yell or scream at the tv as I fight my way through the workout...believe me it helps)
-I can win money!!! If I log my workouts with teambeachbody I have a chance to win money. Who doesn't like that?
I hope that you can find this useful or even inspirational.
It's been a journey for me and I am so glad that I started.
Now I am on my way to becoming physically and financially fit.
Would you like to join my journey and have success of your own?
