Avoid Holiday Weight Gain
by Tina Titas
As the holidays approach, a feeling of
dread creeps in. Not only is money getting tighter, but your pants are,
too. It's the same old story. Colder weather keeps you stuck indoors,
while the yummy holiday cooking fattens you up. Not this year. Not me! I
refuse to gain those holiday pounds and you can, too. No, you don't have
to sign any contracts at an expensive gym. You can get the body you want
on a limited budget.
You may not realize it, but workout
videos are more fun and exciting than they used to be.
Workout videos are also much less
expensive than a gym membership or buying home workout equipment like a
treadmill or elliptical trainer.
If the thought of buying workout videos
reminds you of leg warmers and striped leotards, you've got some
catching up to do. You're not stuck with the boring workout videos of
the 80s and 90s anymore. Believe it or not, the same sought-after
trainers who get paid the big bucks to train celebrities can be on call
to train you in your own home for pennies a day.
Some of the newest fitness trends are
available on video.
Have you always envied a ballet dancer's
lean and graceful body? Several ballet videos are now available as
workout videos. One of the most popular choices right now was created by
the famous New York City Ballet. Although you won't learn to be the next
prima ballerina training with exercise video at home, you will shape and
lengthen your muscles for a graceful body.
Shimmy your way to a great waistline.
Whether you want an instructional video to teach you proper belly
dancing technique or you just want to exercise with belly dance moves,
you'll find a wide variety of videos available.
You read that right. If you've ever
thought it would be fun to learn sexy moves, then this is for you. In
the privacy and safety of your own home, you can bump and gyrate to your
heart's content. I have also heard that laughter is good for your abs,
so you'll have that covered as well, especially if you have a mirror in
your workout room.
Yoga or Pilates:
If you're looking for a sleek, lean body,
firm core, or more flexibility, then there are hundreds of yoga and
Pilates videos to choose from. You'll find yoga for adults as well as
yoga for kids. Yes, kids get stressed, too. Yoga is a great way to teach
them to relax.
Fitness videos for kids:
Oftentimes kids can be the best
motivators. If you put in a Sesame Street dance video and your three
year old asks you to dance with Elmo, you can hardly say "no".
Once you've chosen a trend or video you
are interested in, set a specific time each day to "meet" with your
personal trainer. It's best to rotate at least two different forms of
exercise (or videos) to avoid repetitive use strains. You can do
different videos each day, or alternate a walk, bike ride or other
activity you enjoy on your non-video days. As long as you are moving,
you're keeping those spare pounds from firmly attaching to your body.
So, don't sign that costly gym membership
agreement just yet. Blow the dust off the exercise videos in your
cabinet, get some good walking shoes, or check out the hottest trends at
your favorite online store. It's the frugal way to go.
