Home Gym Bunnies

Are you a home exercise diva? Do you own so many workout DVDs it's slightly embarrassing? When you hit the mall do you cruise the sporting goods shops for new workout clothes? Do you rush home from work or get up at 4.30 AM to get your fix of Cathe, the Firm or P90X? (If you aren't quite there yet but would like to be, come on in and let's talk!) Welcome!

Has anyone tried the Jillian Michael 30 Day Shred? If not, you have to try it!! Before I would jog/run the treadmill for 20-30 min, then do 20min of exercises. The 30 Day Shred is a 20 min workout, and you start on level1 and work your way up to level 3. I had such a good workout and sweated more doing the 20 min dvd than doing my normal 50min workout. It works on your whole body and not just one area. It can be purchased at Walmart for 9.99, try it and let me know what you think!!

I have a copy of this workout but have not tried it yet -- I gave it a watch through when I first got it and though, 'boy that looks hard!' -- maybe too hard for me just yet.  I've been walking 45-90 minutes a day since the start of the new year though, and through lots of very hilly areas -- I can feel my endurance building.  Maybe I'll give it a try one of these days.

Tawa, our fearless group leader, I believe you tried it once and you didn't care for it, is that right?

I've took the plunge & bought it.
I am terrified though haha!!!
It should arrive within the next 10 days & it will then become part of my daily work out!

I currently do 30 minutes a day of Wii Fit or EA Active.
So I am fully expecting this DVD to see me off LOL!!

Do I need to buy anything else to use with the DVD?
(Resistance band/ weights etc??)

You need hand weights, wee dumb bells and a mat if your floor is hard or you dont have a rug for the abs work

I just got it in the mail today from Netflix. If it's good then I'll buy it. Kinda scared though because Jillian is terrifying!!!

I just started the EA Sports Active 30 day challenge.  If you don't mind, I'll chime in here.
Let's get 'er done in the comfort of our homes (basement in my case).
Speaking of working out.... any good sites for appropriate workout underclothing in a size to fit a 200 pounder?  I am having difficulty finding good workout clothes.

I am glad to of found this forum , thank you Titaniastar. I am a workout at home diva as well. I have a great dvd called Zumba! I LOVE it...I would love to be a Zumba instructor someday. Also I have a copy of Hip Hop Abs and it is also fun to do! Great workout for your tummy...lol
I am going to the library to try to find some workout dvds. HOpe I get some good stuff tomorrow.
Trailrunner.... I found a few places online to shop for plus size sportswear. Hope this helps.
I found these by doing a search in yahoo for plus size activewear. I hope this helps you. Because you helped me in return. I haven't bought any workout clothes for myself yet. Heck..I have NEVER bought clothes to work out. But I vow to start looking and buying a few pieces for myself. Thanks

I love the 30 day shred video, I am still on level 1 and plan to move to level 2 after my first 30 days are up. It has given me shape and made me feel great after I am done working out to it.

my other jillian video just arrived today, called the last chance workout ( which I read good reviews about) today and plan to start it on the 1st of September.
