Well here it is! My follow-up to let you know how my time with Fit With Brit is going!
I introduced my new challenge to you in my post “Goodby Easter Chocolate!”, when I had just completed my day 1 with Fit with Brit. By blogging about my experience, I was able to receive 2 weeks free trial (and they accidentally gave me 3 weeks! Shhh, don’t tell them )
I didn’t blog about it in the meantime, but if you follow my Facebook Page, you would have read often how Brit was kicking me into shape!
So what is this all about?? Brit, from Fit With Brit is my new online personal trainer! this website is amazing with the plethora of videos there are to choose from, and Brit is even more amazing with her level of energy and skill. She blows me away. and kicks my butt! These workouts are intense, but she does offer 3 different levels, plus modifications for all the exercises.
Why I am loving Fit With Brit:
*I love how I can do the videos through the computer. I didn’t think this would be a pro for me at first, but it turned out it worked great. I was able to do my workouts in any room in the house, since I work off the laptop, and I could keep my 4-year-old busy, and in front of the TV. Because, honestly, I can’t talk at all while doing these workouts! I need to be left alone!
*There are sooo many videos to choose from, and new ones being added all the time. There is no way to get bored!
*She offers weekly schedules, to help you make sure you’ve hit every part of your body in the week. I have been loving following this, as I don’t like to put much thought into my workouts!
*She is very affirming during the workouts.. I know she can’t see me, but I like to be told I’m doing a good job! LOL! Can you tell “words” is my “love language”?!
*The membership is CHEAP! It costs only 12.95 a month ($13 and change if you are Canadian) and you can cancel anytime. I consider this a great deal, as it’s obviously way cheaper than a gym membership, and much more economic than buying new videos that I am sick of after a few tries.
*Oh, and the best part, all the workouts are only 10 – 25 minutes long! Perfect for a busy mama like me! and for the 10 minute videos, if I feel like I can handle a little more, she offers 5 minute ab workouts, and tons of stretching videos. And believe me, even the 10 minute videos have me sweating gross, and feeling the muscles the next day! this woman does not go easy on you!
Were there any cons? Sure, there were a few, but not enough to sway me away. Here they are:
*Being that it was on the computer (BTW, there would be a way to feed this through your TV if that’s a better option for you), I couldn’t get the volume as high as I would like. She gives so many great instructions throughout, to make sure you have the proper form, and at times I can’t hear her as well as I would like.
*Occasionally the feed would stutter, slowing down the steps a bit. But it was actually much better this last week, so who knows what was going on there.
*The workouts are intense! This is a good and bad thing! I am highly competitive, so I try to keep up with her, and copy her, when really I shouldn’t, and I’ve pushed myself to hard. Be good to yourself! She always encourages you to slow down and modify if needed, so this past week I’ve been trying to do that more!
That’s about it for the cons. Honest! I truly believe if this woman can’t whip me into shape, no one can!! I love it and don’t want to let it go, so I signed up for my membership today! Yay! this is one thing I am happy to be paying for! And in the email I received after, she mentioned they will be expanding their website to include things like nutritional information and selective programs to help members reach their personal goals. I’m excited!
It took me awhile to be convinced to try this. I see so many programs out there, it’s hard to decide what’s right for you. Anna from My Life and Kids blogged about her experiences a lot before I took this step, and I’m so glad I did. If you aren’t convinced, Brit offers a free 3 day trial on her website.
I haven’t been paid to write this post, I just loved it that much, and want to spread the word! If I had lovely “before and after” pictures to show you I would, but unfortunately it didn’t make that much of a difference, but I can see my body changing! Yay!
Let me know if you decide to give this a try, I’d love to know what you think!!
