We all know I have a lot of weight to lose and exercise is not my favorite thing to do but…I have enjoyed trying out the Top Trainers DVD series from HealthyFitBodies.com. In all honesty it has taken me months to go through the videos and some of them I am just not able to do at this time but some of them I LOVE! Let me tell you a little about the program and then I’ll share my favorites.
The founders behind HealthyFitBodies.com have collaborated with the best trainers nationwide to provide one DVD set, offering fitness enthusiasts a dream team of personal trainers in a box. The Top Trainers program is designed to constantly challenge you and your body. The program uses the “blend method” offering workouts from multiple fitness disciplines. By blending all different techniques for weight loss they have created the optimal mixture of exercises to have the maximum effectiveness.
With the BLEND METHOD, you will be challenged with workouts for: Cardio, Buns, Latin Dance, Thighs, Yoga, Plyometrics, Core, Ballet, Interval Training,
