fitness journey update

    Beth, what equipment have you invested in? I would love to set up a fitness center in my basement and would love makes and models so that I am not reinventing the wheel. Do you have a personal trainer that comes to advise you, or how did you know what to do and how to get started?

      Hi Cindy,

      I am pretty familiar around a gym and have worked with personal trainers in the past so I started with very basic equipment and if I need to upgrade in the future I can. Free weights that range from 2 lbs to 15 lbs. One ketel bell that is 20 lbs. a weight bench and a low-key treadmill that’s Oscar’s. That’s how he gets his exercise in on rainy days. What I will invest in (it’s my birthday gift to me) is a Peloton spin bike that has an app that connects to you world-class spin classes. When I work out at home 3x a week I use free weights and incorporate HIIT – high intensity training. The other two days I head to Orange Theory where I run, row, use free weights and the TRX.

      Hope this helps!

    Looking good, lady!

    Your hard work really has made a noticeable difference! I have been walking (until now, when we finally have some rain in California!), but you have inspired me to lift a few weights and do some stretching as well. Good job! Keep up the journey!

    Sounds excellent! Good for you. I’m currently doing some major aquatic PT for upcoming pre-double-TKR-surgery. I’ve always been a swimmer, and the water has always been my “drug.” I definitely know how important exercise is, and I have some major health issues. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, our health is the single most important thing–cherish it!

    Wanted to say, I joined this program on your say so. I am 72 and was both curious and skeptical. Must admit I am now a enthusiastic convert. The program is completely doable, portable, and possible to do at home. The beginner exercise program was manageable for me and I worked out in my small condo with no equipment other than hand weights. Daily accountability is another appreciated key to this program. I am in my last week of round 1. I am eating better, sleeping better and down both pounds and inches. Money well spent. Thanks for sharing this wth us.
