IT’S GIVEAWAY TIME!!!!!
Ok, if you have followed me the past month or so via the blog or social media, you know I have had my fair share of sickie’s in my house. I’ve been a little stuck at home and have been completely out of my gym/running routine. To keep all my crazy from coming out I had to improvise. So, I worked out at home. At home workouts are your best friend if you are at home with sick kiddo’s or don’t have access to a gym…or anything in between. You don’t need a lot of expensive or fancy equipment. A couple of dumb bells, a yoga mat and a floor. That’s it. And if you don’t have dumb bells or a yoga mat and you only have a floor, use your body weight and a towel. Simple as that.
A couple months ago I was made aware of Gigabody. It’s an online workout system that provides hundreds of video options for any type of workout ya’ll could think of. You can log in any time of day and use the system wherever you have internet access and a screen. I love this because I can access it from anywhere. I can workout on vacation using Gigabody because it’s a log-in away at all times. If I had a job that required traveling this would be a fantastic option. No excuses right?
I was able to stream mine through our Xbox so I could get it on my TV. I also put my yoga mat in my office one afternoon and just pulled it up on my desktop. So. Easy.
As far as the workouts go…ya’ll. I did a 20 minute lower body blast one day and I could not walk for 4 days. To me, that is a sign of a good and effective workout.
I’m in the throws of studying for my CPT exam so I feel like I put every workout under intense scrutiny. I’m also feeling out what kind of trainer I’ll be and what kinds of workouts I’m drawn to. I’ve never been one to do video’s from home, but this system really intrigued me. Once I did my first workout, I was hooked. I particularly loved Amy(I had a throwing up kid and maybe no bra or makeup when I did her workout, so that puts us on a first name basis) because she includes tons of exercises that don’t just work one isolated muscle. She includes lower body exercises that will challenge your core and upper body as well as your stabilizer muscles, which is something I look for in a workout.
Please watch this and look at her legs. They are amazing. Like, amazing. And this took me 20 minutes…..20 minutes!!!!!!
I also did a core challenge workout one day after some time on my bike and it was killer.
The great thing about this system is you can choose your type of workout(yoga, cardio, strength, pilates, kickboxing, abs, dance and barre). Once you choose your workout type it gives you the option to choose your time ranging from 10-60+ minutes and your intensity level. I love how personal it is and that you can crank out an intense 20 min workout if that’s all you have time for.
So, my overall feeling is that this is a great bargain. I know a lot of you have asked me over the past few months for exercises or at home options. This is a great one. It’s only $8.99 a month to join with a free 14 day trial.
THE BEST NEWS IS I’M GIVING AWAY A FREE MONTH!!!! Just comment below with 1 or 2 of your 2015 fitness goals and how you think this system might help you get there. A winner will be chosen by Wednesday night. Also, follow me @redheadontherun_1 and Gigabody @gigabody on Instagram. Good luck ya’ll!! Aren’t giveaways so fun?!?!
