I mentioned last week that we would be sending you a link to some free workout videos from Jillian Michaels. I know from being in many of the teams on PEERtrainer that she is very popular.
What I like about the videos that Exercise TV made available is that they are very short (3-4 minutes) and broken out into different areas. They are GREAT for people just starting to get more active. You can do one a day, and feel totally successful.
So often we want to jump right in and see if can "make it through a week of Shred" and it leaves us burnt out. I actually saw this situation this morning. A woman had joined PEERtrainer and was commenting in her "New To PEERtrainer March 2010" team. She ended up pushing herself too hard, ended up getting sick. From there things really unraveled for her.
She had started out in such a great place, but just did too much at once. So my thought is that for those of you who are just getting going, commit to one or two of these short workouts a day, and add two servings of green veggies to what you are already eating. The objective here is to put in place a very doable plan where you can easily succeed, and where you don't run the risk of burning yourself out. Here is the link:
March 2011 Update: The download Is currently unavailable and we are working to get another one. One thing that we are making available free for a limited time is a free download of the PEERtrainer Cheat System, which is a new guide to healthy eating that people are finding easy to do, and they are not beating themselves up in the process.
