People exercise for different reasons. I won’t bother listing them—they’re all good. I personally work out because it makes me feel great—during, but especially afterwards.
I’d always wanted to find a workout program that would engage all of my muscles and would make me sweat—at home, not in a gym. Last summer, Galina Morrissett, my friend and a coach at Team Beachbody, http://www.teambeachbody.com/galinam introduced me to P90X. So I lifted weights, starting with 5 lbs, switching to 8 lbs. I stretched. I did yoga. I did kickboxing. I jumped. I did all exercises–to the letter, and boy, did I sweat! For an hour every single day–for 90 days! As a result, I tightened up my muscles, I became more energetic, and, most importantly, I lowered my cholesterol by 30 points, down to normal! Besides, that no-nonsense workout gave a boost to my creativity–I kid you not! 🙂
I loved this program so much, I decided to repeat it. I did. And I’ll do it again.
But Team Beachbody offers lots of other programs, so Galina suggested that she and I start 2013 with BBL (Brazil Butt Lift), doing it together—for 60 days. Living in different states is not an impediment for us to discuss the fun that we’re having with BBL. We discuss it on Skype, on the phone, and on her website. And it IS real fun! Anyone likes to dance? Guess what? BBL has dancing elements! So, go for it, my friends!
