Coach Nicole's Newest Workout DVD Now Available

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, December 09, 2009



Are you having trouble squeezing exercise into your busy days? Do you need a workout plan that is simple to follow, yet effective? Are you thinking about making fitness a part of your life, perhaps as a New Year's Resolution? Whether you need help starting a consistent fitness program or just want new ideas, my newest workout DVD, The Spark: Fit, Firm and Fired Up in 10 Minutes a Day can help!



This isn't just any fitness DVD. I designed it as a compliment to our new book The Spark, and like that book, it will change how you view exercise. Both items will be available at a variety of online and retail outlets on December 29! But why wait? You can purchase this DVD (just $10.95) from The SparkPeople Store today—and get a jumpstart on your resolutions!

I am more proud of this new DVD than of all of the workouts I have made so far. Similar in structure to the popular Bootcamp challenges that have been so successful on the site, this DVD features seven 10-minute workouts, one for each day of the week, plus a bonus 15-minute cardio workout. There are two different workouts for each major muscle group (upper body, lower body and core) and it comes with a simple workout plan that explains which workouts to do on which days. You only need a pair of dumbbells to follow along, and like most of my workouts, it's highly suitable for beginners, while still giving options for people who are more advanced.

The whole point of the program is to make fitness a habit, to start a workout "streak" that lasts and get real results. It even includes several bonus features and training tips to help you get the most of your workout plan. My favorite workout on the DVD is called "Strengthen and Lengthen," and it's a yoga-Pilates fusion workout that you do at the end of each week for active recovery, light strength training and flexibility. If you don't want to follow the 7-day program, you can use the workouts on the DVD in a variety of workout combinations, some of which are programmed onto the menu for ideas.

Members who pre-ordered The Spark got a free preview of this new DVD. Here's what some of them had to say.

"Love it, love it, love it!!! The energy is great, the instructions are thorough, the enthusiasm in catching! There's no question Coach Nicole knows what she's talking about and obviously lives the principles she's teaching. Keep up the GREAT work!" –ANDREA0301

"The workout was straight-forward and to the point. None of the cheerleader rah-rah stuff (not that that's bad by itself, but it gets old after watching a routine more than a couple of times)." –CYSCOKITTY

"Wow! What a great workout! My abs are just screaming. I can't keep up with it, but I like that it isn't too easy. A great challenge! I must point out I love the backdrop and stage layout. The colors that were used are quite cheerful...a happy place to work out. Can't wait to see the whole DVD. I hope it is available for holiday gift giving, because I'll definitely put it on my wish list! Thanks Coach Nicole you've done a great job!" –ALEXIAAG


Use the Fit, Firm and Fired Up DVD in conjunction with The Spark to take your weight-loss and fitness to a new level! You can order your DVD today from The SparkPeople Store and get it before it is available in stores. Order by Tuesday, December 16 (shipped via UPS Ground) and it has guaranteed to arrive before Christmas!

Thanks for your support! I hope you enjoy this new DVD!

    Me too, I would like to be able to add the daily workouts to my fitness tracker, I know I didn't get all of them, but I had to manually select the ones I think I did, so it's really just a "guestamit".
plus, then I can add it to my favorites!

  Any way to get the strength training on this DVD to show up as exercises on "my Fitness"?

    I haven't had this DVD long due to living in the UK but now I do have it I really love it. My biggest difficulty is getting round to exercise and I have know for years that I should be doing something regularly. THIS is IT! I'm so happy to have complete 10 min workouts and perversely I have been doing two per day - so from nothing to 20 min a day without a second thought. Thank you Spark and Coach Nicole. How great you all are!

PS - I really have to add my plea to the others here for there to be a place to add the workouts to the Fitness Tracker - that would just be the icing on the cake.

    I agree with the request to add the DVD workouts to the fitness tracker. It would make it so much easier to track. I don't really have time to watch the video and write down all the exercises. It's hard enough to have time to workout.

  Just started with Day 1 and was wondering if there is a place on the fitness tracker where we can mark off each day completed to add it to our fitness minutes. emoticon

  I would like to see the daily workouts as an exercise option. Each day you complete a variety of exercises, to be able to pick which day you completed would be easier to track. I am just a few days in but so far, it has been motivating... emoticon

    I have pre-ordered the dvd when I pre-ordered the book. I can't wait to get them in the mail. Do we need anything like the balance ball or anything else to go with the dvd. If we do, please let me know so I will have everything ready when the dvd gets here. thank you. emoticon

    Looking forward to getting my pre-ordered copy. I just has major heart surgery and it will spur me to get back into action/ If it had not been for my two years with sparkpeople I might not have made it. Thanks gang.

    Is it like her workouts online? I find them to be not "enough" for me.

    We weren't actually promised a DVD when ordering "The Spark". We were promised a little piece of it online. You might be able to download that. That offer didn't do me any good as I can't do much exercise in the small space where my computer is and...well, it just wouldn't work.

I'm going to order the whole DVD now. It looks good and I can take it to the room where I can project it to a bigger screen and have room to exercise. I have Coach Nicloe's previous DVD and it's pretty good.
