All I want for Christmas is…

**Giveaway Closed**

Is my Body Back.


cta-small-header
I was recently offered the opportunity to try out a workout program called Mama Wants Her Body Back.  Now, while the name of this workout program might be a little cheesy (I admit it, it totally is) this workout is far from a silly  workout.

Created by fitness instructor Liza Druxman (also the creator of the company Stroller Strides), these workouts are tailored especially for moms.  I was asked to give my honest opinions on the workouts.

And then to offer a chance for one of YOU to win the starter kit to the workout. 

 

My Experience
I was given the starter pack to the workout system.
Included was:
          -2 DVDs
              -Mama Wants her Body Back (3 – 20 minute workouts)
              -Mama Wants her Abs Back (3 - 10 minute Ab workouts)   
           -1 Resistance Band

           -Eating/Diet Plan
           -Workout plan/schedule


My Thoughts

-Love the 20 min workout and 10 min abs.  I feel like I can do that. 
So many workouts are hard to fit in to a busy day.   You can do 1, or 2 or 3 if you have time.  Sometimes I have done 1 in the morning and 1 at night.

-I loved that the 3 workouts were different and I could mix them up and it wasn’t the same workout for 3 weeks in a row.

-Broken into 5 circuit sets of
        -Cardio 
        -Strength 
        -Core
I really like this kind of circuit training. Workout hard for 1 minute and switch it up.

-Love that there is a countdown on the screen…really helps you to feel like you can finish this next 30 seconds and not give up by seeing the countdown.  

-Feel like the exercises are challenging but not impossible.  Some other workout videos leave me feeling hopeless day 1, and not motivated to do it the next day.  This challenged me, I felt it immediately, but didn’t kill me.  

-The resistance bands add immediate resistance to all the workouts.   But a note to consider--- if you are new to resistance bands like I was, it can be awkward at first figuring out how to wrap them around your hands.  Watch the intro part on how to use the bands and practice some.  But I now love the resistance bands.  

-Really enjoyed it so much and felt like it was a workout system that could work for me, that I purchased the next set of videos on my own dime.

 

Cost--

Starter Kit-  $ 42.97 (plus SH)  (You can WIN this!)
     Comes with 2 workout DVDS, resistance band, and Free extra workout DVD. 

30 days later $19.99 ($6.99 SH) = $27
     -you get 2 new workout DVDs

60 days later $19.99 ($6.99 SH) = $27
     -you get 2 new workout DVDs

So if you go with the entire system--
$96 dollar investment

-You can buy the system here

-Some of the other workouts in the system are---
     -Mama Wants her Arms back
     -Mama Wants her Booty Back
     -Mama Wants Advanced Workout
     -Mama Wants Cardio Party
     -Mama Wants Advanced Abs/Core

I actually looked recently into purchasing a very popular workout system that is geared towards women, and this is very comparable in price.  But the reason I didn’t buy that one is the workouts were 45- 60 minutes long… and what mom has time for that?

Things to consider
-Personally, I am not a fan of the 3 installment payment plan.  And I think the website is a bit unclear about what you are signing up for.  Know that buying the starter kit is automatically signing you up for the “preview program” where they send you 2 more installments of DVDs and also bill you 2 more times.

-You can cancel at ANY time by calling their customer service line

-Consult your Dr before embarking on any workout program if you just had a baby or are still nursing. 

-I did not do the diet plan.  I think the calories suggested seems a little low and must be adjusted if you are nursing.    Nursing moms should really take in at least 1800 calories, so please consult a dietician or Dr before lowering your calorie intake.   But the diet plan does have good suggestions for healthy meal options. 

The Best Part??
One of you is going to win the Starter Pack and can start off with this workout system.  (you won’t be sent the next installments though)

So how do you win ?
