Your Fitness Journey DVD Now Available

Your Fitness Journey DVD CoverI am pleased to announce that my first DVD, Your Fitness Journey, is finally available!

I’ve been working on this for quite awhile and I’m excited to finally make this project available to you.  The DVD gives you over 80 videos showing  exercises or varying levels of difficulty in several different categories.  

Unlike most fitness DVDs that give you one or two pre-determined workout programs to follow which quickly become boring and routine, you’ll have the opportunity to mix and match exercises and create hundreds of fun and interesting combinations.  In addition, almost all of the exercises can be performed with a minimal amount of portable equipment that you probably already own!

Because this DVD is different from many that you may have purchased, I want to make sure you know what you’re getting.

Who should buy this DVD?

  • If you’d like over 80 exercises in 8 different categories that will allow you to build your own program, this is the DVD for you!
  • You’ll love this DVD if you want the freedom to create your program on your own without being restricted to a few exercises.
  • You’d like personal instruction on each exercise that you can refer back to forever, you’ve come to the right place.
  • You want more fun from your workout programming because you’ll have more exercises to choose from.
  • You’ve been wanting more variety to keep your body guessing as to what’s coming next.

Who should not buy this DVD?

  • If you’re looking for a pre-defined workout program that you can follow and become tired of in a few short days, this isn’t for you.
  • If you’re hoping I’ll give you a promise that you can do only 4 minutes of exercise and have instant six-pack abs, this isn’t right for you either. This DVD is going to require some work to get results.
  • Don’t expect the “magic bullet” that will help you burn fat in a specific area of your body by doing a specific exercise. That’s because you can’t. It’s not possible. Your body decides where it takes the fat from, not you or the exercise you choose to do.

I’m offering this DVD for only $29. That’s less than the cost of just one personal training session! Get your copy now!

I’m proud of this project and want you to be pleased as well.  To prove it, I’m offering a 30 day money back guarantee.  If you receive your DVD and feel that you haven’t received at least the value of the low price you’ve paid for it, just tell me and I’ll be happy to refund your money.  Like I said though, I’m confident that the videos in this collection will give you much more value than the low price would suggest.  You’ve got nothing to lose!

Using Furniture Sliders for a Workout

I was watching TV the other day and I saw a commercial for furniture sliders and it got me thinking about using them for exercise. So, I picked up a set and was pretty surprised at the variety of exercises you can do with them.

I showed them to one of the trainers at LifeStyles and she came up with several more right on the spot. I think we’re on to something here. Maybe I’ll have to do a whole series of workouts called “How to exercise with goofy things around your house”.

Try these 12 exercises as a quick circuit and you’ll find yourself working up a sweat pretty fast. I’ve also included a short video of the exercises below. Pick up a set of sliders, try it out, and let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.

1. Slide outs
2. Alternating slides
3. Pike
4. Mountain climbers
5. Oblique mountain climbers
6. Jacknife
7. Atomic push up
8. Army crawl
9. Hamstring curls
10. Single leg hamstring curls
11. Reverse lunges
12. Lateral lunges

TRX Sponsors US! Longs Peak, here we come!

Longs PeakFor the past 2-1/2 months we’ve been tirelessly promoting our participation in the TRX Sponsors You contest. (If you’re not already familiar with the TRX Suspension Trainer, go here). Thanks to the efforts of the readers of this blog and all our our Facebook friends, students at Neuqua Valley High School, Gregory Middle School, family, and many other friends, we won!

Courtesy of TRX Training, my daughters and I are going to climb Long’s Peak this summer. I couldn’t be more excited and I know they feel the same. I’ve always loved the mountains. Rachael is too young to remember her trip to Alaska when she was 2 and Sara’s never been to the mountains. Neither have ever been above 5000 feet except for a few trips in an airplane. Winning the contest was the easy part and now comes the preparation, planning, and training.

In addition to my other fitness related articles, I am planning to document the trip and our preparation for the climb on this blog. Before you begin thinking that this doesn’t apply to fitness, let me explain.

One of the most important parts of your fitness journey is setting a goal. I’ve said it before and I’ll keep saying it. If you don’t have a goal, what are you doing and why are you doing it? Second, reaching your fitness goals involves more than just working out. It involves a personal commitment beyond the weight room or cardio machines. It involves you and those around you supporting your goal. It requires planning and preparation of your mind to visualize reaching the goal. It involves asking yourself regularly, “is what I’m doing today right now, helping me reach my goals”. Our goal is going to be completed one step at a time, literaly, and so is yours.

With that in mind, our goal is to be standing on the summit of Long’s Peak this summer. I look foward to sharing our progress with you!
