Before you start reading this post, I want you to know that I am aware of the issues with this program. I am not going to be a coach, or participate in drinking or selling the shakes. I am only here for the daily workouts. Please do not ‘warn’ me in my comments. Thank you.
Ive thought long and hard about physical fitness and my health these past few years. Ive been a member of the YMCA on and off for the last 5 years. I mostly do group exercises like Zumba, BodyPump, and CXWorx.
In light of the possibility that my state may begin re-opening mid-May, I have seriously thought about the implications of being in my local YMCA and around upwards of 10-20 people in a group exercise room. I also do not want to workout with a mask on my face. I have a compromised immune system (SLE/FM) and have not been taking ANY chances with my health during this challenging time. Ive been doing regular workouts on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube but I have found that Ive been doing the same types of workouts everyday and needed something more.
Ive known people who have done Beachbody and Ive even followed some coaches online for awhile. Ive even done their sample workouts and really enjoyed them.
I decided that since we dropped our membership to save what we could (Thankfully my S-O is still able to work right now) that we could put that towards this program. Comparably, my YMCA membership is $70 a month for the two of us and BBOD is $99 a year. And since I dont expect to be back at my gym for the remainder of this year, this makes sense on many levels.
I have a coach (actually a married couple) who has an active Facebook group so I have some semblance of social interaction. I have a workout plan and I can access my workouts on my laptop, phone, tablet, and apple tv. I wasnt aware of this, but they also have a nutrition aspect – not just their shakes. There are even vegan options, so Im able to use that-in addition to what Im already doing to plan my meals.
I am a week into BBOD and I am loving it. The workouts are challenging – Im doing the 21 Day Fix (Real Time) with using their Yoga Studio on my off days.
Im not here to sell anything. And if you want more information Ill point you in the direction of who I joined thru. I make no commission if you join. Just contact me on Instagram (@JustSheilz) and let me know you read this blog post.
I hope you guys are doing well and staying safe!
