Hello Zuzana, Freddy and all bodyrockers around the world!
My name is Miriam (midimidi) and I have been a body rocker for the last month and a half. I am 33 and a mother of 2 kids, 3 and 5. I have always been pretty active but I gained a lot of weight with each pregnancy. I would lose the weight with hours of running a week. Then after 6 months, I would quit running from boredom, frustration or an injury. The weight would creep back on and the cycle would happen again. I noticed that running wasn’t truly helping me as much as it had when I was younger. I realized that I was losing actual muscle mass, even with the daily 5 mile runs, I still looked skinny-fat and had a gut, and tons of cellulite. I was really afraid of working out with weights in the gym. It was intimidating to go upstairs surrounded by big muscle heads and not exactly sure what to do. On another forum I asked a friend who is a gym buff what to do. She mentioned bodyrocker tv. For some reason I thought it would be a home workout video that I would have to pay for and that would become boring. I finally went and checked it out and I was instantly blown away!
Even though I could hop on a treadmill and run for an hour those short intense workouts made me feel like my lungs were scrubbed clean. I grunted, cried out and sweated my way through it. I couldn’t do a single push up. I did my first workout in the kitchen with my microwave timer! When I started body rockers my fat composition was 26 percent. It is down to 21! I’m just starting out but I am finally getting results that I want! Running endlessly on a treadmill never got me anywhere near my goals, literally. Wandering around the gym aimlessly trying random machines never helped me lose fat. I now have a plan. I do one workout a day- and I have no excuse not to get up and do it since it’s everything I need is right here!
Thank you for helping me change my body! I look forward to seeing the future changes and to one day finally being able to do a pistol squat all the way down!
PS- I included a before shot (ewww) that shows pretty much where I was at! you can see how uncomfortable I felt in my own skin!
