Killer Cardio

Jillian Michaels Killer Cardio DVD contains 2 short cardio workouts. They are both structured in tabata format (20 seconds of work followed by 10 seconds of recovery). They both have 4 circuits containing 4 exercises and each circuit is repeated. I really enjoyed both of these workouts. They are not the most intense workouts I … Continue reading Killer Cardio


Cardio Back & Bicep Burn

I am feeling much better this morning so I was thrilled to actually enjoy my workout again! I didn't take Nyquil last night so that wasn't dragging me down this morning either. This morning was Cardio Back & Bicep Burn by Yvette Bachman. This is one of her newer workouts and I knew from the … Continue reading Cardio Back & Bicep Burn

HIIT, Cardio Step/Circuit Heavy Weights

HIIT, Cardio Step/Circuit Heavy Weights is yet another excellent, fun and effective workout from Yvette Bachman. It is one of her longer ones (69 minutes) but it is done in sections so it can easily be shortened and used for my weekday morning workout (Yay!). After the warm up, the first part of the workout … Continue reading HIIT, Cardio Step/Circuit Heavy Weights

30 Minutes to Fitness: Build & Burn

Build & Burn is a fitness program from Kelly Coffey-Meyer. It contains 5 workouts that are all just under 30 minutes. There is no calendar but the idea is to start at workout 1 and do one workout a day. She also includes a week long menu and each meal is interchangeable. It doesn't give macro/nutrient or calorie … Continue reading 30 Minutes to Fitness: Build & Burn

Fit Body by Julia: Back & Lat Burst

My back is probably my favorite muscle group to work (with my glutes followed close behind) so when I saw this mini workout was only 27 minutes, I knew I had to give it a try. It could be the perfect finisher for another workout. And I was right! I loved this workout! Very intense … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Back & Lat Burst

Fit Body by Julia: Upper Body Workout

Upper Body Workout is another tough workout from Fit Body by Julia and it was created by Daniela. This workout is very deceiving. One thing I love about Julia's workouts is she gives you the break down below her videos so I can create my workout card in advance and choose my weights before starting. … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Upper Body Workout

Fit Body by Julia: Cardio Madness

Cardio Madness is a Fit Body by Julia workout. This is my 4th workout by Julia. It was actually created by someone named Daniela but, of course, it was performed by Julia. This was another super tough workout (does Julia do any workout that isn't super tough?). Julia wore a weighted vest off and on … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Cardio Madness

Fit Body by Julia: Full Body Supersets & Tabata HIIT

This is the 3rd Fit by Julia workout I have done. And wow. It was killer. Brutal and grueling but I wasn't counting the minutes like I was when I did No Equipment Crazy Cardio. This is a workout I could see myself returning to. It is long. 87:30 minutes of non-stop hard work. I … Continue reading Fit Body by Julia: Full Body Supersets & Tabata HIIT

Dream Body Workout Series

A long time ago I did a Dream Body stand alone workout and I hated it. I never in a million years thought I would do another one. I did get a comment at the time telling me that the series (this review) was way better than the stand alone workout I did. I still … Continue reading Dream Body Workout Series
