I've been working out with Outdoor Fitness for about 2 months now, it's absolutely amazing! I've been dancing for 20 years, off and on strength training using elastic bands plus weights at home.... but this is the best shape I've ever been in. Plus, I really look forward to working out. It's fun being outside, and the exercises make me feel strong. The different terrains really do intensify the exercises. I'm experiencing the outdoors like I never have before, really being a part of it instead of just admiring the scenery. It felt a little strange at first doing these exercises, especially with other people around but now it feels so good that I don't really care. Also getting my Vitamin D/daily sunshine and I just feel amazing overall. Sometimes I don't even feel the need to turn on my music, it's so relaxing out in nature. Not like the gym where I had to drown out the noises and try not to look around at the ugly building.
In these two months, my legs have come about three quarters of the way to where I want them. They are muscular and toned and I am feeling strong. Still a little ways to go. I workout 6 days a week. It's not as hard as its sounds; once you step out the door your workout can start. Not like when I would get my bag together and drive to the gym or dance class. I'm back in 30-45 minutes, totally wiped out. Arms are definitely showing definition. My tan looks great : )
Also wanted to mention that I'm a busy mom and pet owner, and it's really really helpful to have a workout that can include them. I take my dogs jogging with me for the warm up (daughter rides her bike) and then plays at the playground while I workout at the park. All you typically need is a hill or trees or a picnic bench or playground equipment- haven't had a problem ever finding the props I needed. If you don't have a hill for example on that day, you just choose a different workout, like the one for stairs or bleachers. The equipment is all around you, you can leave home with nothing in your hands and nature will provide it all.
The book itself is good, nice photos to demonstrate the moves. I wish there were more workouts. I've done all of them already. A couple in the beginning focus on just upper or lower body. I wish there were about 20 combinations. Maybe I just need the creativity to make up my own. But it's great to be able to just open the book and not plan it all out first.
What a deal.. under $10 to get in the best shape of your life! HIGHLY recommended!
