Nesco’s own Jennifer LaPorte shares some encouragement by way of her own story of fitness success:
Is your body ready for the beach? I know what you’re thinking….”who has time to workout in addition to working a full-time job?” But it’s important to ask yourself about your energy and confidence levels not to mention the benefits of reducing stress. Working out and working go hand in hand and reap benefits far beyond looking great at the beach.
In addition to working full-time, I’m also in the process of finishing my degree on-line, and I take care of a needy dog at home. Recently, however, I found time to incorporate working out on a regular basis using an at-home DVD program.
You may have heard of the popular “Beachbody” craze that everyone is talking about! For me, this was a program that made it easy to balance both a busy schedule along with a workout program.
Three weeks ago, I started one of Beachbody’s best-seller workout programs called “INSANITY”, and believe me, the title certainly holds true to its name.
Insanity is a series of workouts that takes place 6 days a week. And the minimum workout time is around 40 minutes. I can admit, it hasn’t exactly been easy to get home at 5 o’clock at night, workout, eat dinner, take the dog out for a walk, and then give a couple of hours of attention to my schoolwork each night. Further, I have not really been the type who has been able to stay fully motivated with a “home workout program”, however, the program I am using is definitely addictive, and a lot of fun
Committing a TV show’s worth of time to something that makes you look and feel great doesn’t seem insane at all. The great thing about these programs, are that you can complete them in the convenience and comfort of your own home – there’s no fear of being “judged in the judgment free-zone”; you don’t have to leave your living room, basement, or wherever you chose to complete them, and best of all – THEY WORK! Skeptical? I was too. However, once I ordered my INSANITY program, and announced it to FaceBook for my friends to see, I soon discovered that there are actually a lot of people I know who have used the program, had success with it, and really enjoyed it!
40 minutes to an hour a day might seem like a lot. But, why not give it a try? I always had the excuse “that I never had enough time” – well I do now, because I’ve made time, and have committed to the program. And so can you. Besides, bikini season is coming up fast – therefore time to commit is now! In the words of Beachbody – “Decide. Commit. Succeed”!
