I don’t know if it’s a good thing or a bad thing that a 10 minute workout video made my legs feel like jello last night.
A good thing because it’s nice to know I can get in a good workout in just 10 minutes.
A bad thing because my legs were actually shaking about two minutes into the workout. I have some work to do.
Well, their motto is “Better Results. Less Time.”
Hmm. Sounds like something I could use. Simply put? Daily Burn is a fitness site that streams workout videos to you, and changes up the program based on your feedback. I haven’t figured out the site well enough yet to give it a full review, but I logged in last night for the first time and tried my first workout.
I selected the 10 minute “Bikini Butt” workout and I absolutely LOVED it. I especially loved the trainer. I wanted to write down everything she said during those ten minutes because I agreed with it all! She is actually a pediatric ICU nurse who often works 12 hours/day. She understands not having enough time to workout! And I love how she pointed out that this isn’t about skinny. This is about being STRONG. Yes!
As a working mom, it’s REALLY hard to find time to workout. You know that I try to get up and run twice during the week at 5:45am and once on the weekends but some mornings (like yesterday morning) it just doesn’t happen. And quite frankly, since my six week boot camp ended, I haven’t been doing any workouts other than those runs. When I get home from work between 5-6pm, I want to spend time with the Mini Athlete. I do nothing else but play with him until he goes to bed at 7:30-8:30pm. At that point, I either do some housework, spend time with my husband or blog. Or usually a little of each of those things. Bottom line? If I don’t get a workout in before I get to work at 8am, it just doesn’t happen.
One thing I already like about the Daily Burn? They have several options of videos under 20 minutes. Quite frankly? It’s hard to me to commit to a workout longer than that. But 10 minutes? 15 minutes? Even I can’t make excuses to skip that. Most of the time.
My goal for the week? To do at least one more Daily Burn workout at some point. I’ll let you know how it goes!
