Review of Kettlebells DVD with Lauren Brooks - Ultimate Body Sculpt

I remember when kettlebell training first hit the mainstream. Almost overnight, gyms were rapidly filled with a whole array of kettlebells and we were left to assume that they must be good for us, but nobody was quite sure how to use them effectively or how to incorporate them into their routines.

I only really got into using kettlebells as part of my workout routine about a year ago. I train at an MMA gym and one of the instructors took the time to go through the basics with me. After a little experimentation, and some light reading, I now include one kettlebell session into my weekly training routine.


I love the benefits that a kettlebell session gives me. Kettlebell training is something a little different, which helps keep things interesting, while the direct benefits are great too; you get a strength workout, while also building your endurance levels and developing your core. In addition, if you incorporate the use of kettlebells into your regular circuit training routine, you can reap the benefits of a cardio workout.

Jillian Michaels' Kickbox FastFix Review

I admire passion, in almost any healthy and non-harmful shape and form, and I love to see passionate people in action. This is why I love Jillian Michaels, her passion for fitness and the way she can inspire and motivate people to transform and become the best of what they can be. I started watching “Losing It with Jillian” shortly after I had my baby and many times the inspirational stories on the series brought a tear to my eye and motivation to exercise.

I have been looking for a new exercise DVD I can use from the comfort of my living room so I was pleasantly surprised to find Jillian’s new kickboxing release. And oh, if you knew me just a little bit you would know I love the idea of a fast fix, especially when it comes to fitness. Needless to say then, the combination of an inspirational trainer like Jillian with the promise of quick results definitely sold the DVD to me!

Seniors Exercise DVD Review | by Sunshine

Although most people associate seniors with debility and weakness, there is actually no reason for this in most cases. It is true that after the age of 50 a majority of people lose the desire to move around as much as they used to, but there is no reason for this unless the person is completely disabled.

The lack of exercise after that age can lead to the loss of 70% of body muscle, which is why so many elderly people creak around. The "Seniors Exercise DVD" can help to prevent and reverse this trend. Sunshine will lead the user through a set of sitting exercises that can significantly increase bodily strength and general health.

What Is The "Seniors Exercise DVD" About?

In the video below you can watch a short but enlightening video clip of the way that the "Seniors Exercise DVD" works. In this video Sunshine herself demonstrates some gentle exercises, both sitting and standing, that give strength and balance but they also stop osteoporosis and relive arthitis pain.
