When I go to the gym, I usually start with some cardio to warm up. I then do some lifting on machines that hit the muscles that I want defined. I sometimes end with cardio, also. When doing the elliptical or treadmill, I also do intervals. What kind of gym do I go to? My mother just joined AnyTime Fitness. I checked it out with her and really enjoyed it! If you have one near you home, you should check it out. With a membership, you can workout whenever you want, even when staff are not there. I was impressed by their elliptical machines. Each one had a T.V. and a fan attached! Sweet, huh? That place has about anything you can think of. If you want to check it out, go to: www.anytimefitness.com. I am planning on switching from my old gym to Anytime Fitness, or just going to both.
When I do a work-out video, I often choose a Chalene Johnson video. Work-out videos are so BORING and take alot of motivation to pop in the DVD player. Hers are a blast. She adds dancing to her work-out videos. I have one of her videos titled, "Fat Blaster." It is a killer. She uses intervals in that video. I also have a slower-paced video of hers that focuses on your butt and stomach. If you wanna check her out, go to: www.chalenejohnson.com. Another video that I like is Zumba. I'm sure you guys have heard of it. It is a blast! I also recently found a good online ab video from the Tone It Up girls at www.toneitup.com. You should check out their website. They are great! Here's the link to the ab video: http://toneitup.com/blog.php?Tone-It-Up-Ab-Workout-Video-1460.
