Reviews of Biggest Loser: Weight Loss Yoga
Review 1: Hard, but effective…Overweight people welcome.
I ordered this DVD not knowing if it would work for me or not. It has and does. I am very overweight, though I’ve lost 50 lbs, I still have a ways to go. I started this DVD not having any sort of exercise experience (hence the being overweight part). I have since started going to a gym, but alot of people who have a weight issue, are nervous or possibly embarrassed to enter any sort of public gym or classes.
This was me. It starts off slowly,meaning stretching, but builds up quickly. Some of the moves I couldn’t do for a long while. Don’t beat yourself up. The fact that you’re trying is awesome! You will get there soon enough. I was sore for the first few times afterwards. Soak in a hot bath with epsom salts and apply peppermint oil in some sort of carrier oil(olive oil, almond oil, etc)on your sore spots and you’ll slowly get used to it. I like Bob Harper
‘s enthusiasm.He’s clear in speech and helpful.
He’s not annoying like most exercise hosts can be. Don’t get me wrong, I hated his face at the end of each session, but he pushes you without you wanting to shoot out the TV just to stop seeing his face. I had no idea what I was doing at first, gave up, walked back into the room and kept going. If I can do it, you can as well. Good luck and I hope this helped someone.
Review 2: AWESOME workout for anyone in any shape!
I actually bought several Jillian Michaels DVDs about the same time as this one and ended up giving this one to my bff. Fast forward several weeks and she started doing TBL yoga and loved it! I’d fallen off the wagon with my workouts so we decided to start working out together with this DVD and WOW! What a HUGE difference!
I liked the JM yoga workout but it was tough and intense and at a quicker pace (which I easily adapted to, but it probably wasn’t best since I’d never tried yoga before) but this DVD is PERFECT! Bob is super friendly, encouraging and there’s even a tiny bit of meditation at the end which I didn’t think I’d like but I’ve come to look forward to! It’s the perfect way to end this workout! I’m only on Weeks 1-2, but I like that even after you finish the six week program there is a maintenance workout so that takes most if not all the guesswork out of the whole exercise bit for me!
The moves aren’t difficult and he gives you several options if you need to work into it. I espeically liked seeing “regular” people (I’m guessing TBL contestants or former contestants?) working out in the video as opposed to well-practiced, toned, super gorgeous people (no offense to them, but when you’re starting a weight loss journey, the last thing you need is to see pretty people doing everything pretty perfectly, imo). I’ve also tried TBL walking workout which is AMAZING and quick! Kudos to Bob Harper and his methods! I’m sold!
Review 3: My favorite
This is a great DVD for those wanting to get in a good workout at home, I didn’t think Yoga could make such a difference but it does. Not only will it help you lose weight and tone your body but it also makes you feel a bit taller because it stretches everything out and helps you get pops out/work out your muscles so I’ve felt pretty good since I started using this and I mix it in with other workouts as well.
I tell everyone I know about this Dvd, if you are thinking about trying it I say go for it. You can start out at an easy level and work your way up to longer and longer sessions.
