Week 1: Was a bit on the body trying to get used to the different levels of strengths and jumping. My arms and body were sore and was good warm up. I lost about 200 calories and a pound.
week 2: This time around was bit more of a difference for sure as I got used to the equipment and my body sure was used to it. I watches what I ate and I lost about a few pounds this time around. The arm stretch bands were the hardest of them all but sure were helping my damaged shoulder.
week 3:This one was a bit of a delay cause my son’s open heart surgery so I only got to the do the jump rope while he was watching TV and of course gained from the stress and not to healthy hospital food.
week 4: This one is a few days since we got home and I got to do the DVD’s, ropes, and jumping, and I dropped all the calories down finally. My body sure was worked out, but boy it sure felt amazing!
week 5: By this time, all the exercises were in my brain and I new what steps to take and what to do, that I new when to do what. My body was able to not hurt so much and it felt amazing and I need to do this more often.
week 6: All in all this was a much easier fitness package then most and it introduces you into them slower and easier that your body doesn’t feel so warn out by the end of the 2nd week. I do this now without the DVD’s on a daily basis at night of course when my kids are in bed and have time. The whole package comes in a bag that you can travel with easy, take it anywhere and even the gym. Or take it to a friends and help work out with you. The package is nice and the company gets it out to you so fast! I wasn’t able to do a week by week by itself with the wedding and my son’s open heart surgery but gave you a tease of the greatness of this product and is way worth it over those other one’s that make your body hurt way too soon!
