Customer comments on this Youngstown Ohio Book
I exercise regularly and have used several different programs. With four kids and one on the way, I often have a hard time squeezing in time to spend an hour at a time working with weights. This is a great alternative if you want to stay in shape but don't want to spend hours a week working out.
I also love that there is a great variety of exercises. You won't get bored and if you do it right, you'll work up a sweat.
The cards are good quality and the directions are easy to follow. I'd recommend this program to any busy mom (or dad, or college student...etc).
Good exercise program
I am already on the South Beach diet, so I purchased this kit to add strength training to my routine. I have been using the 8 minutes in the morning kit for two weeks now, and I already feel stronger. I like the kit a lot, because I am able to take out the cards I need for the next day and set them out with the dumbells as a visual reminder. My guess is that the book is harder to stick to. I didn't pay much attention to the CD, and the diet seems a little odd, but then again I didn't try it. I did tape a before picture and a motivational after picture in the little booklet that came with it, and that is really helpful. 8 minutes may not seem like a lot, and it really isn't, but it does add up to 48 minutes a week, which isn't too shabby. I think this program is a great easy way to fit exercise into your daily routine.
On week 2
I am on week 2 of the kit, and I haven't seen any changes. I think that this program is really meant for persons who are really out of shape...I just wanted to firm up and lose maybe 5 lbs. The diet would probably be hard for people who overeat, but since I eat fairly well, I don't think it was much of a change from what I already eat.
Even though I haven't lost any weight, I do plan on continuing the weight training. Haven't noticed any changes in muscle, but I definitely feel sore after some days...so it must be doing something!
