Exercise Motivation, Part Two

This is part two in a series of articles on exercise motivation. Part one is here.

Here are some thoughts and tips for dealing with those days (or weeks) when you either don’t feel like exercising or have too much going on to get in a regular workout. This assumes you’re doing a comprehensive, structured program, such as P90X, INSANITY, or Turbo Fire.

First things first:  Don’t get down about it! Everyone has these days, weeks, and even months or years. Just accept it and move on.  The most important factor is that you do exercise the majority of days out of the week/weeks out of the month.

Here are some tips for dealing with lack of motivation:

  • Go for a walk on your lunch break or after dinner.
  • Try working out at a different time of day.  It’s common to become bored with a routine schedule.  Maybe you’ll feel more motivated early in the morning or as the day draws to a close.
  • Find a friend to walk or workout with; help each other stay motivated.
  • Mix up your workouts. Try Ten Minute Trainer one day–  It’s only 10 minutes!
  • Let yourself have a “cheat meal” IF you’ve done your regular workout.  Sometimes a little reward can keep you on track…just don’t do this one on a daily basis.

Brazil Butt Lift Review

Brazil Butt Lift is the latest Beachbody fitness program from Leandro Carvalho!

Leandro Carvalho combines Brazilian dance, cardio, and his own signature lower-body sculpting moves to lift, firm, and shape your behind for a rear view you’ve only dreamed about.

This workout is tough!  Sure, it may be designed and marketed primarily with women in mind, but I’ll tell you – I’m a P90X graduate working on my second time through and Brazil Butt Lift is challenging for me!  So to all the guys reading this — there’s no shame in joining in on this workout!  Each workout is very fast paced and non-stop.  Having a background in dance would really be beneficial, but it’s also ok if you don’t have one because you will by the time you finish this program!  Heck, this could even improve your social life if you go to dance clubs!

Women all over are loving this workout!  I have personally spoken with women who rave about this program.  It is a challenging dance and cardio program which WILL improve your fitness level while specifically targeting and improving your butt.  Did I mention that this program has ab exercises too?  It does!  Tummy Tuck will challenge your midsection to give you the abs you’ve always wanted.  All you have to do is keep pressing play!

Here’s what you get:

6 Booty-blasting workouts on 3 DVDs:

  • BUM BUM – Leandro’s signature workout (named after the Brazilian slang for “butt” and pronounced “boom-boom”) combines fat-blasting cardio with the best lower-body sculpting moves you’ve ever tried. (35 min.)
  • HIGH & TIGHT – Focus on all those stubborn trouble zones: the hips, glutes, and saddlebags. Leandro uses his secret weapons—the Booty Resistance Band and ankle weights—to lift your butt to new heights. (35 min.)
  • SCULPT – In this video, Leandro takes you through a total-body workout with a sexy Brazilian twist, to sculpt your entire body while focusing on your glutes. Look like a sexy supermodel—lean and toned, without the bulk. (50 min.)
  • CARDIO AXE – Feel like you’re dancing in the streets of Brazil with Leandro’s signature axe (pronounced “ah-shay”), a fat-burning, cardio-blasting, dance-based workout that delivers all-over slimming results fast. (30 min.)
  • TUMMY TUCK – Leandro’s surefire way to get flat, sexy abs in just 15 minutes. (15 min.)
  • Bum Bum Rapido (bonus!) – This 10-minute booty blaster delivers the tush-tightening results you want when you’re short on time.

You also get tools to help you shape your body:

  • Booty Makeover Guide
  • Fat-Burning Foods
  • Triangle Training Workout Cards
  • Measurement Tracker Card and Tape Measure
  • 6-Day Supermodel Slimdown Plan

Have you ever watched the infomercials on TV and wondered if the results were true?

Have you ever wondered if the people were lying?  If they were being paid to say the things they did?

Chances are that yes, they were reimbursed in some manner for their time.

However – I’m here to tell you, the results are REAL, and so are the people’s transformation stories.

As an Independent Beachbody Coach, I receive a lot of feedback about fitness programs.  Primarily, this feedback comes from the people I coach who have committed to an exercise program such as P90X or Insanity.  What is the majority of it like?  Usually it’s in the form of “It really does work!”, or “I’ve lost XX pounds in XX days.”

Yes, this stuff is true, and the results are real.

Think you’re too out of shape or too overweight to commit to a program?  Think again!  Just watch this video and you’ll see that YOU can lose weight and get in great shape!  YOU can have the body you’ve always dreamed of!
