Review: Moms Into Fitness 60 Day SlimDown System (& Giveaway)

2011 Resolution #2 (right after reading the Bible in 90 days) is running a marathon.  Quite the challenge considering I only re-started running a week before the year began.

One eensy weensy problem to dampen my motivation – I don’t always have someone at home to watch Esmé when I want to run, and I certainly am not up to pushing her on the run!  Solution:  keep on the fitness track with DVDs.

imageAnd that’s where Lindsay Brin’s 60 Day SlimDown System comes in.  I haven’t had it long enough to evaluate the slimming down features of it – though I’m hoping to see them soon enough.  But I have been enjoying the four DVDs already.

This Cutting Edge System will boost your metabolism and have the pounds melting off within the first 10 days. Get started today with the 3-phase Nutrition Plan any mom can follow, a detailed Fitness Calendar and Progress Tracker. Check your fitness level on Day 1 & Day 60 with the Fitness Test to see the stronger, leaner, new you.
In Phase 1 all workouts can be done in 30 minutes or less. Then in Phase 2 you will challenge your body even more so you continue to shred your core - and lose even more fat! All in 45 minutes or less. Also included, a bonus Phase 3 so you learn how to see results after the initial 60 Days.
In 60 days you will Super Charge your body for the Ultimate Slim Down. All you need is 1-2 sets of weights!

imageWhat I Like:

There is a whole lot I like, so we’ll get that bullet thing going:
  • The plan is simple – no long books to read, just a 12-page outline that covers your food plan and your daily workout schedule.  I love the ease of the food plan.
  • There is a maintenance or ongoing plan – Phase 3 – so you can keep going with the program after 60 days.
  • Lindsay is friendly, informative, and real.  You can track her own postnatal fitness journey (2 babies, 4 IVFs) at www.lindsaybrin.com/.  Actually, right now you’ll be tracking her pregnancy with #3!
  • There is lots of variety.  The Core Metabolic Jumpstart DVD is a 23-minute workout meant to boost metabolism.  The Core Firing Sequence Method DVD is just a short 7-8 minute workout (actually, three, one for each phase).  My personal favorite, the Shed Fast 5 DVD, has two half-hour routines with 3-minute intervals that keep things lively and interesting.  And the last, the Post Natal Boot Camp DVD, has tons of options that you can mix & match, or just pick a Quickstart workout.
  • It fits in YOUR schedule.  While there is a recommended workout plan for the first 60 days, the DVDs are segmented so you can do several short workouts instead of one long one or mix things up.
  • There are workout partners for different fitness levels.  Most of the DVDs have a beginning, intermediate, and advance workout partner you can follow.
  • I love the kickboxing segments, of which there are many.  I just find them fun, energizing, and confidence-building.
  • You don’t need a lot of equipmentI have one set of light weights, and that is serving just fine.  And of course, there are no expensive foods to buy with the plan – you eat everyday, ordinary stuff.

What I Don’t Like:

Uh – exercise?  Seriously, I’m not terribly motivated when it comes to exercise, but I’m finding that this is working well – and by this time next year, I’m expecting to have that marathon (and a few less pounds) under my belt.

I did p90x before I got pregnant the last time, until I got sick and had to stop, but it was such a huge time commitment (and strenuous) that I have been afraid to try it again. But I have been wanting to get back in shape. I'd love to try this one!
