My all time Favorite Exercise Program

Posted on: December 8, 2012

I have to say that while I really like water aerobics in deep water and finning(swimming with a kick-board and fins in several ways to promote all over body workout).  I had a membership to the YMCA and was there for three days a week and in the pool for about 21/2 hours each visit.  Unfortunately as a mother that involved a lot of work to provide that for myself and it got old pretty quick…If only I had a husband who was at home nights instead of out working…

So right before joining Weight Watchers, I happened to catch an infomercial on the Fluidity Ballet Bar program.  I loved what I saw from the very first moment, but refused to make an impulse decision on something with that price point.

Fluidity 4th Position: This classic ballet position integrates muscles to work together from head to toe. The Result? Integrated movement develops the long, lean, shapely muscles of a dancer’s body. Added bonus: a healthy dose of that balletic self-confidence and poise!

What made me decide to make the purchase:

1. Reviews on Facebook page that were very positive and most impressive and repeated review was that the workout could only be done every other day as the body needed a recovery day.

2. It reignited my love of ballet that was part of my early childhood

3. It is low impact and would not hurt my knee or sciatica.

4. I respect the program as it is a combination of Yoga and Pilates

5. I tested some of the moves with a chair for two weeks and saw the value.

6 It is an all over body workout and targeted my trouble spots.

7.  I can do it from home whenever I find the time

8. They offered a payment plan that made it much more affordable

Fluidity Fold Over: The answer to your prayers! Your lower back, seat and hamstrings coordinate to develop fluidity along the back of the body. The Result? A graceful curve in the lower back leads into a firmer, lifted seat; slimmer hips; and smooth muscle tone along the back of the thighs.

I religiously did the program for 3 days a week for one month before joining Weight Watchers. I did not change my eating habits and lost 8 pounds. The reviews were right I could not do it more than 3 days a week.  It kicked my butt each time.  I have finished the payments and have no regrets for making this purchase.  While I have neglected to do a regimented program, I have kept it up in my den and use it often, just not the full work out…

Fluidity Pull-Up: To every yin there's a yang! The perfect complement to the chaturanga push-up, the Fluidity Pull-Up strengthens the back of the shoulders, a must-do for the yoga devotee. The Result? This signature move renders the push-up bra extinct as it firms the pecs, develops muscular balance in the shoulders, and sculpts the upper arms.

So I now realize I have been saving this as my secret weapon… I am now at the end of the weight loss journey and those last pounds are the hardest to lose.  I am determined…So I am making the commitment to the full workout for 3 days a week. I don’t like embarrassing myself and do really well with accountability.  Now that I have put it out there to you, my dear readers, I have to commit…

The proof is not just in the scale moving, so I will track my measurements as well.  Since  I weigh in on Tuesdays, my week is going to start on Tuesdays.  So far this week I did it on Thursday and again this morning.  That means Monday will be day three for the first week!

I am not receiving any compensation for any recommendations made on my blog. 

So What is your favorite exercise program?  Comments are welcomed and appreciated!
