8 week fitness challenge – the end of the first month

Just thought I would check in and let you know we have been consistently doing the “Fitness Blender” program for one month now. Today we retested and we noticed improvement in almost all areas. I was able to knock a minute 7 seconds off my one mile time and increased in all other areas except squats, but the ones I did today were much deeper squats than a month ago. I was also happy with my flexibility which increased in the reach test by four inches. My daughter also improved in all of her areas, most notably in crunches and push-ups.

I am very pleased that I have had no injuries including muscle strains through this program. Usually that has been the case with other exercise regimes, but the narrator guides us well through the exercises. I also like the variety of the videos, I am not bored yet! The videos do occasionally jam, and we have to restart or not watch them. This has only happened a couple of times though.
