    Here we go again...

    I don't know how many times I can "get fit" and never get to the end. And life is not easy now, and it's hard to focus. DH and I both out of work, thank God for a little savings - unemployment gone - great gym in our basement - lots of dvd's - but so hard to get motivated. I do a few days...

    do you eat b4 am workout?

    I'm wondering what people eat before an early am workout. I only have an hour and workout 6-7am and don't know if I should have whey protein or 1/2 banana or what before an early am workout. I would have breakfast after the w/o on the way to work or at work. I should be starting a new job next...

    Re: Footwear

    Ok, the (spin) bike is on it's way, and I was wondering if any of you spinners out there can give me advise for some spin footwear that won't cost as much as the bike itself. And also for kickboxing: what footwear would you recommend? I wear cross-trainers for everything and don't have the...

    cardio & weights

    Just did C&W. Haven't done it in such a long time I forgot how much fun it is. Wow, it was a good little workout. I usually do Imax 2, which is one of my fav's but decided to change it up and glad I did. Autumn

    [email protected] new STS Toal Body

    Cathe: Is the new STS Total Body dvd (1) single workout? How many options will it have. You mentioned in the review that it has some of meso 1 and some of meso 2, so that makes me think that it is different workouts. Or is it just a mix of the types of exercise in the one workout. Hope you...

    suggestion for next sts

    I don't know if you will be doing another STS series, like an add on, but if you do, I would love it if there were 2 extra stretch workout at the end. One focusing on upper body, and the other lower body and perhaps a 3rd, with a combo. of both. Sometimes I am in a hurry and just want to...

    noticed this in sts series

    Cathe I keep forgetting to tell you that in the STS strength series, a lot of times you give form pointers and the camera goes on someone else, or when you are introducing a new move, there is a side camera angle in STS cardio, and it kind of threw me off a bit. I just wanted to let you know...

    w/o manager problem

    I was wondering if I could delete a rotation without deleting each one. I put a 6.5 month rotation for sts and can not delete more than one at a time. I had the wrong date pressed so it messed up the calendar. Thanks - autumn

    B/C of my bad knee I can't do much more than walk and elliptical for a week or two. I miss kickbox and boxing and even step. I can do upper body, and to spread out the weightlifting I'll do one upper body - body part a day after elliptical work. Once I'm back to normal I'll get back to STS...

    I finally got my MRI & doc said I don't need surgery - thank God, I have a gastroc strain in my right knee. It's been getting worse b/c every time I felt better I hurt it again. Doc said to use 2 alive and stay off it for a few wks, let it heal, then start from heavy weights at...

    weights everyday?

    Cathe: I have to do low impact due to a knee injury. So I'm trying to get the best bang for the buck. I'm doing STS for the 2nd time, and was wondering if I could do circuit training with lighter weights on alternate days. Generally the circuit training hits most body parts, so I can't...

    # finally coming off

    I have had such a hard time loosing weight, even though I've been gaining muscle and loosing inches. But, cutting back on my cal's, and eating much cleaner really did the trick. I thought if I just workout a lot, I could eat what I want and still loose weight. Now, I don't mean anything, but...

    Knee Injury ?

    I went to the dr for my knee and he said I might have torn cartilage :(:(:(:( . Due to financial difficulties, I can't afford the MRI right now, and can't stop working out, so I'm puting an ace bandage on and doing what I can, taking it easier on the right knee. Anyway, I was wondering if...
