I do not like going to the gym. I do not normally enjoy working out- in fact I avoid it. But...
I finally found the workout I've been looking for that I can do at home and I actually enjoy it!
Tracy Anderson's workout Dvds. Tracy is Gwenyth Paltrow's personal trainer and has developed several effective, manageable workouts.
I used the post-pregnancy mat workout after Graham was born and literally felt like I saw results within one week. Tracy gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy and is only 5'2 and designed this workout for herself afterwards. It is so helpful!
The mat DVD is more extensive. I divide this workout into 3- 20-minute segments and do one a day. I never want to workout for more than 20 minutes so this works for me.
Tracy's method is all about toning and not building bulk muscle. She also has cardio DVDs but I have not tried those. I've heard they are a little hard to follow.
