    I'm so excited. I love my new spin bike my DH got me for my Bday. It's a Bladez Velepro $699 reduced to $284. I would loved to have purchased a higher end....StarTrac or Lemond Revmaster, but I'm hoping this one will serve me well. It has a belt driven, 40 lb fly wheel and the seat and...

    x-Train 30 day undulating + Ride ?

    I've done the 30 day cardio + strength three times and love, love this rotation, but now I want to try the 30 day undulating + ride. I don't have a spin bike yet (hoping to get one for my b-day). What would be a good substitute for Ride? I have all of Cathe's workouts. TIA Dianne

    Cathe and Suspension Training

    Ok. I'm just sitting here dreaming of what Cathe's next workouts will be! I know if she would do a suspension workout, she would take it to a whole new level of dynamic lower body and upper body work with unbelievable core work. She could incorporate it with her Turbo Tower to attach it or for...

    Hip Thrusts on and Incline Bench

    Hi Atompki1 I am using an incline bench, but it would be the same as using your step on an incline. My incline bench is padded so it gives me more comfort. Using the incline, I have my butt on the floor with the barbell in the same position as if you are using the flat step with risers...

    Hip Thrusts on and Incline Bench

    I've been doing the 100 Hip Thrust Challenge on and incline bench. It gives me more support for my neck that I have problems with. I'm not sure if using the incline bench diminishes the integrity of the exercise. I tried using the step with risers and the incline bench and it doesn't seem to...

    Does anyone have a remedy for stiff neck?

    Great advice from Melissa. Another thing that is really helpful is self-myofacial release with either a foam roller, tennis balls or pinky balls. I use a soft weighted exercise ball. You can look up some exercises on you tube to guide you. All I know is that using the balls to get in the...

    Should I Keep Rip60

    Merry Christmas Everyone! I bought myself Rip 60 for a gift to myself for Christmas. It was discounted to $59.99, a real buy, but I'm not sure now if I will use it enough. I've been looking at reviews for the workouts and they don't have stellar reviews, but the suspension system does have...

    Pyramid Lower Body w Weighted Vest and Dumb Bells

    I tried Pyramid Lower Body w/ a weighted vest and absolutely love it! I always avoided the lower body workout because the barbell put stress on my lower back but using the vest and dumb bells reduces the stress on my back. This workout rocks! Also, one of my favorites premixes is the bonus...

    New Hair Style?

    I'm with you Fit44. I also cut my hair into a cute bob and loved the look for a while, but not being able to tie it back into a ponytail while working out drove me crazy. I'll be 60 next Oct and I still have long hair. It's about to the top of my don't laugh, it's not that...

    RIP 60

    If I've been a good girl, I'm hoping for a suspension trainer from Santa. The TRX is the most highly regarded and I've seen the Jungle Gym by Lifeline. Yesterday at Walmart they had RIP 60. It's pricing is calling to me; especially since it has the workout dvd's that come with it. Does...

    I'm so excited to receive the new low impact series. I have a Life Cycle that has given me some great workouts, but can't wait for Cycle Max. Do you think I can adapt the Life Cycle for this workout? I'm not sure at this time on spending money on a spin bike. Dianne

    Banslug (Gayle)!! Food Steamer report!

    Has anyone steamed rice in the Oster steamer? Kohl's has a sale tomorrow for the Oster Rice Cooker for $9.99. That might be with a rebate. But if the Oster Steamer can cook rice, maybe that would be a better buy, since you can use it for other foods. Kohl's has the steamer for $42.99 on sale...
