Last October, PRWeb predicted some of the fitness trends for 2012. I was disappointed with their ideas. Zumba, fitness professionals, programs for the obese, seniors, and more personal training? Ok, so basically, the trends for this year will be a repeat of last year.
Fitness trends can be frustrating because so many of the trendiest workouts are not offered in every city. If you don’t live in New York City or Los Angelos you may not have access to striperobics, or piloxing.
That’s not f*$!ing fair, so here is my suggestion to all who crave a new and unique workout-Workout DVD’s!!! Novelty is a click away if you have a computer. Check out vids from Netflix or purchase some from Amazon. You’re bod will look just as hot as any celeb (make sure you keep a good diet,too), and just think-you won’t have to worry about stalkerazzi trying to snap pics of you when you leave your apartment.
1. X-Pole Xpert 50mm Chrome Stripper pole from Amazon. It’s pricey at $364, but pole dancing is a full body workout. Purchase the Pole Dancing- A Beginners Guide DVD, for $14.99 and you’ll have you’re own profession stripping instructor to teach you the moves.
2. Zumba doesn’t really do it for me. I’m more attracted to leg-warmers, cut-off sweatshirts, and feeling like I’m the woman from Flash Dance. Dance with Julianne: Just Dance DVD cost $7.49 through Amazon, and will lean you out, while simultaneously teaching you some potential moves for the real dance floor. No Ryan Seacrest required.
3. Jackie Warner is hardcore! Didn’t you catch her reality show on Bravo? The woman is ripped, lean, and tough as a piece of meat left out of the fridge. Ok, not a nice visual, but your abs will be if you let this lady train you in her workout DVD Workout: One-On-One Training with Jackie. Priced at $10.99, the purchase will be oodles cheaper than hiring a personal trainer, and when all your friends ask how you got so hot, you won’t be lying when you smugly reply, “I train with Jackie Warner!”
4. SHAPE was the first women and fitness magazine to provide readers with info completely backed by medical and fitness experts. When you’re not flipping through the magazine, check out one of the workout DVD’s put out by the publication. Shape: Ultimate Bikini Body Workout is only $8.22 and only takes 40 minutes, with 30 minutes devoted to fat burning cardio, and 10 minutes left for toning. Sometimes workouts can be found on Netflix so make sure to add them to your instant queue.
