Some things work well when approached obliquely– like sneaking in 10 minutes of exercise when you get a chance (keep reading to access the ultimate home video workouts that are set up so you can sneak in some short bursts of fun and sweat.) But what we are not sneaky about is that the following product review is a sponsored one.
Alexandra: If you’ve ever wondered where top group fitness teachers go to work out, the answer is, “we go to the very tippy top; to the world-class instructors.” Yes, you could call us workout snobs. Or you could say we’re very discerning. But when we take a class we want to be sure it’s from instructors who know their stuff.
Giveaway and Product Review
Kymberly: And if you’ve wondered where you might win free membership to a new video home workout website, the answer is RIGHT HERE courtesy of FitnessGlo.com. Enter the giveaway below after you read this post. But first, be one of the first to find out about FitnessGlo.com, where you’ll find a plethora of home workouts you can tailor to your tastes, schedule, and goals. Yes, it’s mix and match time. Plus I wanted to say “plethora” as it’s a cool word.
Alexandra: When FitFluential invited us to be part of a sponsored campaign to showcase FitnessGlo, I did air jacks and push-ups of joy because I love, love, love, love the quality of the workouts, led by international star and Presenter of the Year Petra Kolber.
Just like fitness enthusiasts who want a good home workout, so do fitness professionals. And we like the added bonus of having access to choreography we can use in our own classes.
Trust and Credibility
Alexandra: For me, it’s very important that I trust the instructor’s knowledge. I get so frustrated by celebrities who offer workouts, yet don’t actually have any credentials; they just have fame. Fame doesn’t keep my boomer joints safe. When I went to the FitnessGlo site, the first thing I did was go to the About: Team page to check out the instructors’ qualifications.
You should click the link; they have impressive resumés. The second thing I did was go to the Style tab and choose a workout. I’m partial to step, and I always need new ideas, so I started there. Then it was on to the tube workout and disco dance class.
Organized by Level, Style, Duration, or Teacher
Kymberly: What I liked about the site is the easy navigation and variety of options. You can choose your workout by level, workout type, teacher, or how long you want to exercise. Like my sis, I gravitate to step. Combine that with a dancey style and I am ready to sweat and go … or in this case “Glo.” So for my initial foray into the site, I chose Latin Step with Petra. I was revved up after that so kept going with an easy to follow, Level 1 low impact cardio workout also with Petra and also Latin flavored. Cual sabor! On my next visit I had only 15 minutes open so chose my workout by duration. FitnessGlo is all about finding balance so I selected an abs class rated level 3 that lasted 10 minutes. Ten challenging minutes. That level 2 is looking tempting for my next strength or core workout.
Alexandra: Since I teach so much, I rarely attend a class, especially as it’s a 20 minute drive to the nearest club. But now my kids are getting used to seeing me working out in front of my computer monitor. And when I hear the oven timer ding, I can hit pause, go check on dinner, then return to my workout. Or I can just choose one of the shorter workouts (they range from 5 – 45 minutes long). Which would you rather do, spend 20 minutes driving in traffic or use those same minutes to get fabulously buff and toned? Exactly.
Kymberly: I’d rather spend 20 minutes eating whatever Alexandra was cooking for dinner.
