Finally... a mom's perfect fit!

I am not a person who enjoys working out. I have also never watched Biggest Loser (although I may start). One day, however, I realized that I was getting a little older and out of breath a little easier....that the padding around my hips could add on a bit more quickly than it used to. The gym is kind of unrealistic for me as I have two pre-school children and to pay for the membership PLUS the babysitting would be a bit much. Oh...and I don't like working out anyways so by the time I would get everyone ready to go I probably would have talked myself out of it.

When I saw that this was 20 minutes and less than $20 to buy (plus came with some pretty good reviews) I thought it was a fair enough risk to take.
I'm 2 weeks in now and have to say this is an ideal workout for me.
It's quick - the kids either hop along beside me or can find something else to do.
It's effective - my body is indeed changing as is my attitude about eating and just staying healthy.
It's fast paced - I love yoga, but all the time I spend moving slowly and close to the ground is like an invitation for my kids to crawl all over me. They can't catch me with this one!
The requirements are low - we have very limited 'living' space on our condo but that hasn't deterred me a bit. A bit of floorspace and some small weights are all you need.

Jillian is direct and rather motivational...and when she tells you that the 20 minutes of hard work is worth it, she isn't kidding. Definitely an investment I would encourage.

I was excited when I started and continued to do the exercises everyday for about 2 weeks. I noticed that I gained endurance and my arms became a little more defined BUT after 2 weeks my knees couldn't take it. She has a simplified routine for low impact on the knees but even then my knees still hurt. If you haven't exercised in a while, this can be hard to keep up with at first, and if you have knee and joint problems, I wouldn't recommend this at all.

    don't waste your money

    My boss bought this and loved it. I bought it and I don't like it. It's so boring and to me very hard to do. I can to the 1st "session" and that's it. I don't even use it anymore. I'm going to donate it to goodwill.
