    Looking for the best shoes

    Ok. You're not going to believe this but I've been wearing the same workout sneakers for 4 years now. They are totally broken down and my feet hurt so bad when I do my cardio workouts (not enough support, I suspect). Since I do a lot of Cathe's step workouts, I originally invested in cross...

    4 Day Split (Cardio lenght)

    I was interested in buying the 4 Day Split DVD's. Some of the reviews I read said that the cardio portions were short. I was just wondering how short? Because as much as I love to lift weights, my body really thrives on the high intensity cardio workouts. Are we talking only 30 mins? Can...
