It’s Friday!!! This week was a super-busy one with the MAGIC and PROJECT tradeshows. So this weekend, my big plans are to pop in my iPod and hit the gym! Today’s TGIF post is all about some of my favorite gym gear.
I love form-fitting workout tops and pants because, let’s be honest, you gotta show off what you’re working for! I also slip into a pair of comfy flip flops after my workouts, especially in this hot Vegas weather.
Have a great weekend!
We’re deep into pool and beach season, and working out tends to jump up on our priority list during the summertime. But sometimes, we all fall into a workout rut, doing the same boring routine day after day.
Studies have shown that varying your workouts (in reps, intensity, weights and type) will yield faster and better results overtime. Whether it’s taking your workouts outside the gym, or taking that hot new fitness class you’ve been hearing about, keeping yourself constantly challenged is the key to noticeable results as well as beating the workout doldrums.
Getting cute new workout outfits can also do wonders in renewing your enthusiasm towards your workout routine. Wear a fresh and cute gym ensemble to that new barre class or that fun Zumba® class with your girlfriends! The key is to have fun and continually challenge your mind and body.
It may be over 20 years old but a great 80s workout video that will have you sweating is the "29 Minute Beginners Workout." The "29 Minute Workout" has several different videos that were released in the series, but the beginner's workout will definitely give you an awesome workout.
When you first start the video you may have to get past the cheesy workout clothes and 80s hair, but if you pay attention to the exercises being done you'll find you are working up a sweat in no time! The workout features aerobic exercises that work to whittle away the pounds and fat in under 30 minutes.
If you are short on time, the "29 Minute Beginners Workout" is still a great choice for a workout video. Performing this video will get you a full body workout that you will feel the next day in under 30 minutes. Best of all, since it is geared toward beginners and intermediates, there are no tricky exercises or moves to catch on to. Everything is very straightforward and easy to learn.
This 80s workout video is led by Deborah Lee who is an accredited fitness instructor that had quite a resume of fitness experience before instructing this video. She does a good job of taking the workout slow enough so that beginners can catch on, but still keeping a pace that will get your heart rate up.
The workout starts with a short warm up, as every workout video should. It then goes into a program of low impact aerobics and calisthenics to get the body burning fat and those pounds melting off. The workout ends with a cool down segment so that you don't pull any muscles and cool down the right way.
The "29 Minute Beginners Workout" is not for everybody. If you have been exercising for quite some time and you consider yourself pretty advanced then this workout is not for you. However, if you are a beginner to the workout scene, or only workout every once in awhile, although this tape is old, it is definitely a good one to add into your workout rotation!
