Couples Workout For Health and Happiness: Strength & Tone Together
Gina Guddat, 2015

Gina & Larry work out together in a nice living room set. You will need dumbbells, a step bench, and med ball for this 43 min strength workout. You can easily do this workout solo (you may have to slightly modify a few exercises) or grab your significant other for a fun tonight workout! The DVD is fully chaptered.

Between exercise sets there is an intro screen that gives you a short rest break. After a warm up & stretch, exercises include: unweighted squats adding weights, overhead press, and calf raises, bicep series, lunge series holding hands for balance, abduction & lat raises, deadlifts & single leg deadlifts, front raises, tri dips & one leg tri dips, standing med ball twist & pass adding a squat, rows, upper back fly, pushup series starting at counter height to full pushups off a step, and bridge & bench press adding kegals & inner thigh squeezes. 
You will need to add on your own cool down/ stretch.

I rate this a solid intermediate routine, that you can easily modify up or down depending on your poundage. The couple offers lots of intensity options & modifications as well as excellent form pointers throughout. Lots of combo moves that get your heart rate up and a great pace that allows for moderate to heavier weights. The couple is fun & encouraging to work out with- the couple that works out together, stays together. 
I received this DVD to review.

Restore: Restore Your Gut Health & Improve Your Overall Health



Restore is a unique supplement that I recently had the opportunity to review. It is unlike any supplement on the market. Restore is made in the USA. Restore is a soil-derived, scientifically-backed mineral supplement that has been shown in lab studies to strengthen tight junctions in the gut wall, our firewall against toxins entering the body. Restore helps create a biological environment for good gut bacteria to grow and flourish, to support improvement of overall health. We all know how important good gut health to our OVERALL health and restore is an easy to use liquid supplement and is now available in a TSA approved size, perfect for travel. Keep reading to learn more. Order online or check out your local GNC.


Restore comes with 50+ years of combined research and clinical experience from the world’s leading institutions and the doctors and scientist at Biomic Sciences LLC. All of this experience brings to the market a unique dietary supplement and health products that address basic dietary and health issues about good gut health affecting a large percentage of the U.S. population. Restore supports the return of biodiversity in our gut ecosystem that supports our immune function. Restore is the first supplement on the market that functions as an antidote to glyphosate and gluten toxicity at the tight junction.

“It is important for people to know that RESTORE produces a medically-significant outcome. My patients, who use the product every day, get better. Rather than treating specific diseases, I use RESTORE to allow our immune system to prevent them in the first place,” says Zach Bush, MD, co-founder and Chief Medical Officer for RESTORE. Dr. Bush is Board Certified: Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice Care.



Restore is a plant-derived mineral supplement that creates a protective firewall against toxins entering the gut wall. Restore creates a biological environment for good gut bacteria to grow and flourish to improve good gut health. Even if you eat non-GMO, gluten-free, and organic, you are still susceptible. These herbicides can damage your tight junctions, which are the Velcro-like proteins that allow the body to absorb the nutrients it needs, and block the toxins it doesn’t. RESTORE works by increasing tight junctions to promote a healthy internal firewall, which helps create a more resilient system -- supporting gut health, respiratory wellness, balanced immune function, and enhanced mental clarity in the face of environmental factors.

Now in a convenient TSA-friendly three-ounce travel size, you can pack your bottle of RESTORE in your carry-on and bring it on all of your travels. Three teaspoons daily provide a six-day supply, perfect for shorter trips. It’s also a great size to carry with you, especially when dining out.

Moms Into Fitness & Lindsey Brin Present Pretty Fierce Weight Loss Tabata Cardio



Lindsay Brin brings & Moms Into Fitness brings you Pretty Fierce Weight Loss! It comes complete with eight 24-42 minute workouts, workout calendar, running calendar, and meal plans. Available on download or DVD. Pretty Fierce Weight Loss consists of 8 workouts that feature a combination of HIIT, Tabata, Shredding, Flexibility and large/small muscle split training. This program is for everyone- from beginner to advanced because it’s a progressive program broken into 3 stacks. Read all of my Moms into Fitness Reviews here.

Pretty Fierce Weight Loss: Tabata Cardio
Lindsay Brin, 2013

Lindsay leads this 28 min tabata cardio routine with one background exerciser in a brick gym set. You wont need any equipment for this workout. You will perform one exercise, 7 times, 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off followed by a 40 second rest between exercises. The workout concludes with a finale - each exercise done tabata style.

After a warm up, exercises include shuffle jab, hi knee run up & back, speed skater, football run & floor touch, jump rope & tuck jump, finale, and a cool down stretch.

I rate this a low advanced routine done following Lindsay but you can easily adjust the intensity because of the timed intervals. You give it all you have for 20 seconds but get a rest between. The exercises are athletic and easy to follow. This is a great get in, get out and get it done cardio routine. Time went by quickly & my heart was pumping! I received this workout to review.

#SaturdaySelfie & Some Stretch Stories

#SaturdayWorkoutSelfie

As you may (or may not) know I have been dealing with a back issue for almost a year now….grrr. I think the technical term must be old as $#@% ;) so I have started adding stretching to my workout routine, a lot of stretching. If you have ever noticed I don’t review the stretches in workouts, I don’t usually even review the stretch discs in workout systems. I have my own stretch routine that I do after working out that has always been enough, until now. So I am going back to some old systems & trying out the stretch routines to see which ones I will start incorporating into my rotations. So you may see some reviews popping for stretch routines from systems long ago reviewed. 


Heres to another great week. Happy fitness friends! Get it done and remember you are only competing against yourself. Anyhooo here are some #SaturdaySelfie pics.

REVIEW: Joyful Movement Cardio with Natalie Spadaccino

Natalie Spadaccino, 2015

Natalie leads this 31 min flowing cardio routine with one background modifier. You will not need any equipment and the ladies work out barefoot.

After a warmup, exercises include plie with arm movements, balance abduction & tap, plie hops, back rolls & stretch, dancers lunge, front leg raise pulses, tree pose with knee rotation, balance arabesque, demi plie adding abduction, side step –squat & core twist, lunge & core twist, balance knee with a reach, and concludes with a stretch.


I rate this a high beginner routine in terms of choreo & intensity, but is great for all for all fitness levels-depending on your energy level for that day. Natalie includes some great balance work & even hits the core a bit. This is a feel good, get you moving, flowing routine that reminds me a bit of an Ellen Barrett style that leave you feeling happy and accomplished. I really like Natalie, great demeanor and excellent cuing throughout. I cant wait to try more from her. I received this DVD to review.
