iBodyFit Giveaway

I'm sure I've mentioned a time or two that I kind of enjoy exercise.  Running, weights, boxing, cycling...there isn't much I won't try.  You may also know that I get up before the crack of dawn to get my workouts in before Randy leaves for work so I can be dressed and ready for the day before the little ladies wake up.

I would love to take cardio or spin or Zumba classes at the gym, but we're a single income household, so that leaves exactly zero dollars to spend on a gym membership.  Another flaw in the gym membership plan: I have to be home by 6am for Randy to leave for work and most gyms, that I know of, do not offer fun classes at 4am.  Sure, there's gym child watch, but often that costs extra and we're back to not having extra money for a gym membership.  Sigh.

I make-do with my workout DVDs and try to switch things up so I don't get bored, but....I get bored looking at the same faces and the same workouts over and over and over...

Enter, iBodyFit, an awesome online diet and exercise program.  Franklin Antoian, the founder of iBodyFit, set me up with one month of Premium iBodyFit membership in exchange for an honest review of the program.  He's also giving me one month of Premium iBodyFit membership to give away to one lucky reader!

Here is what a Premium membership includes:

One month of
  • Unlimited access to all online workouts
  • Unlimited access to all online exercise videos
  • Access to the iBodyFit30 Challenge
  • Yoga and Pilates
  • Running plans (1 mile to marathons)
  • A custom diet
  • Trainer support (to help you find the right workout for your fitness goals, plus you can ask any fitness questions you may have)
Online workouts!  This is what I got the most excited about.  New workouts, new faces...I was practically spinning in excited circles!

So far, I've tried the shorter, no-impact workouts.  All that I've done are quality workouts.  I haven't yet tried any cardio workouts.  My physical therapist told me last week that I could ease back into plyometric exercises (jumping) but I haven't yet. 

I'm a chicken.  Feel free to make fun of me. 

The calf tear I experienced back in March hurt.  Bad.  I'm terrified of a repeat. 

Terrified. 

I know I need to get back to it soon, but I'm really good at coming up with excuses why today isn't the day.

For now, I'll keep running, because that's what I love most, and doing low impact strength/cross training.

Now, who wants to win a month with iBodyFit?
