Saturday Review & Giveaway :: My Trainer Fitness | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


UPDATED::Congratulations to our two winners, Kirsten and Jen! I’ll be in touch, ladies!

When it comes to working out, I would have to say that I’m more of a cardio person. I’m more likely to run, swim, or bike than I am to lift a weight.

Honestly, I see strength training as a necessary evil. I know I should do it, but I just don’t.

Recently (if you consider May “recently”…I’m a procrastinator in evey sense of the word…) I got my hands on the My Fitness Trainer 100-calorie 6-Pack. It’s a set of 6 cards that each have a 100-calorie workout on them. It’s starts with a little cardio and then goes into a series of resistance/weight training exercises.

Each card has full color photographs of the exercises being demonstrated by none other than Carla, the infamous MizFit. (Full disclosure: I may have a little girl crush on her.)

Let me tell you, these routines are short and sweet, but they are no joke. Each card (one per day), took me through a 15-20 minute circuit training workout, and I was sweaty and breathing hard and had jiggly arms and legs at the end of each card.

The majority of the moves were familiar to me, although I did have to look up one move on YouTube because I couldn’t get quite understand what I was supposed to do. The exercises are easy to modify for difficulty (or…ahem…non-difficulty).

 Straight from the horses mouth:

What Equipment Will I Need?
All Optional—easy to substitute or modify:
Resistance Bands, Dumbbells, Stopwatch or Clock, Jump Rope, Mat, Hula Hoop, Swiss Ball
Substitute with any of the following:Heavy Books, Filled Bottles/Jugs, Soup Cans, or, simply increase repetitions, intensity and/or time.

This is an easy, QUICK way to get a little workout in. The cards are three hole punched and come with a caribiner clip to hold them together. There is also an optional binder you can get to hold your cards. Those options make it super convenient to take with you anywhere. (HINT: Holiday travel…)
