How to Use Your Fit, Firm and Fired Up DVD

Tips and a 21-Day Workout Plan

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 habit, perhaps part of your daily life? 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! I designed all eight workouts for this DVD to compliment to our new book The Spark, and like that book, it will change how you view exercise. 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. Use the Fit, Firm and Fired Up DVD in conjunction with The Spark to take your weight-loss and fitness to a new level!

21-Day Workout Plan
At SparkPeople, we believe that exercise is one of the most powerful things you can do to transform your body and life. Exercise, done consistently, has the power to change your mood, energy level, productivity, and motivation; it can also help you tone your body and lose weight. In the book The Spark, we recommend trying a 21-day “exercise streak” where you exercise every day (or at least 5 days a week) for 3 weeks. This will spark your metabolism, create powerful momentum, and most importantly, help make exercise an integral part of your life. By following our plan, your body will be more FIT, your muscles will be more FIRM, and your mind motivated, confident, and FIRED UP!

I designed this DVD to give you plenty of workout options. Try any of these 10-minute workouts whenever you can fit them in. Use our preprogrammed options for longer workouts. Or, create your own workout plan! If you’re ready to really fire up your body and mind with a daily workout program, here's a weeklong workout program that you can follow for 21 days by using the workouts from this DVD.
