I never win anything. Really. This is the first time in my life that I threw my name into the proverbial hat and was lucky enough to have it drawn back out. My prize? A shiny new workout DVD, delivered right to my door. I was very excited to give it a try, but I have to admit that in my mind it would only be a supplement to my already rigorous routine of spinning, running and strength training. When I popped the video in and saw that the first workout was only 22 minutes I thought "That's okay, I can just go to the gym later to get a real work out." Let me tell you, I did not make it to the gym later that day. In that 22 minutes I broke a sweat, breathed hard and had to skip the last set of squats because my legs had reached failure. I did wish that I had more coordination for the foot work required, but I'm not known for my grace. Besides, after the first two work outs I saw what was coming and was able to keep up just fine.
I also loved that the workout was different every time, never the same two days in a row. It was never boring, and I always felt like I worked my whole body.
I know this sounds like a fluffy review, but I really am glad to have this vid in my arsenal. I love that I can do 40 minutes, or 22, and either way I'm getting a comprehensive work out. And I love that Coach Nocole isn't a loud, obnoxious mannequin who is totally out of touch with who is actually doing her workouts.
So, go print your coupon, get yourself to Target and see for yourself why I'm so glad I finally won something!
