I intended to go to the gym today. I was planning on taking Body Pump, a weight lifting class set to fast, fun music. However, I simply could not get myself motivated to get there. One of the big reasons is that I am not fond of the teacher. The workout itself is good but her personality is so bland. I feel bad saying that but that is how it is for me.
I decided to work out at home. I first reached for my beloved Tracy Anderson dvd but right underneath it was a dvd that one of my friends had given me. Yoga Booty Ballet. I had never done it and thought why not try it this morning. I have been on a yoga kick recently. Yesterday I practiced with one of my favorite Yoga instructors and felt like doing more yoga today. I figured this would be an ideal time to test out the dvd. I did the 45 min Total Toning Basics routine.
Even though I don’t enjoy most exercise dvds, I did enjoy this one. It was a nice combination of yoga along with sculpting moves. I know why they used “Booty” in the title. You definitely work out your butt a lot! The instructors, Gillian and Teigh, do say some hooky things like “You can make this funky” or “Reach for the sky” and other things of that nature, but I just choose to ignore those statements 🙂
I also really enjoyed the music. Music, for me, is a huge factor in my enjoyment of exercise. I am glad I have yet another dvd that I enjoy!
