Coach_Nicole's newest 28 Day Bootcamp Video

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I was one of 250 SP members to win a free 28 Day Bootcamp Video - the only stipulation was that I must blog my review of it after giving it a decent trial run.

First off, I really like the professionalism Coach_Nicole shows from the Introduction through the workouts. She speaks clearly, plainly and slow enough to know what she is saying.

Did I have trouble keeping up? In a nutshell, yes! I am not in shape emoticon
Do I think it is a decent workout? Again, yes! emoticon
Was I able to do it? emoticon Not exactly emoticon
Did I mention I am out of shape? emoticon

Ok, now to tell you the rest of the story. This is no more difficult than me trying to follow the various steps in "sweatin to the oldies" - it is just different than anything I have tried before. With time and repetition, it will get easier to do and there is plenty of challenge to keep it as a great workout for a very long time.

Since losing the weight, I can no longer jump - at all. It hurts - a lot! However, I can raise up on my toes and at least it almost simulates jumping.

I am not sure what was expected of me when I was sent the Workout Video but I will rate this as a solid workout for just about anyone to attempt - I know it will make me stronger and more agile and it will work those muscles!!

    Hi Raylin;

As we get older we will try just about anything and may not know how to do it correctly but we make the attempt. I will do anything and try to better myself as I go. You look great and keep it up. Make 2012 your best year in everything, have fun. God bless you aways.

Smile Joyce

    Great review!! I am soooo looking forward to getting this DVD!!! I'm sure you can do the non-jumping moves, right? No one can do an exercise DVD right off the bat! So, just do whatever does your body good! Be well, my friend! Thanks for the great review!

    Aren't you glad she has all the different levels you can do and not feel one bit badly about doing any of them? I LOVE her workouts! I need to do MY blog! I am so busy working extra hours at the store to pay for RHETTA! I'll have to get it done, though! emoticon

    I have been looking for this video in all the Targets in town (we have at least 4), but no one carries it. I'm glad you were able to acquire it for free and not have to spend the time going from store to store, only to come out empty handed.

    I don't do well with workout videos - never had. Glad you were able to try it and I know you'll let us know if you continue. Practice makes perfect (or so they say) - maybe I just need practice.
