Who knew there was everything from the Thug Workout, to Christoga (Christian-ized Yoga)? Or the hilarious-looking Texercise, which features cow roping along with aerobics? I was fascinated by the range of videos--this wasn't your run-of-the-mill Tae-Bo kind of workouts. I wondered, what would it be like to do all of these?
I needed to get back in shape anyway, and like many in this economy, I wasn't keen on spending $70 a month for a good gym. And though I live in an active area, I get bored with the same routines. I figured that if I blogged about this little experiment, I could hold myself accountable, sharing my results with you.
So, today, the experiment starts. I'll give my play-by-play of each of these. I've rented a few to get started. They are:
- Carmen Electra's Striptease Workout DVD, #1. So far, my boyfriend has enjoyed this more than me.
- Thug Workout--Fitness from the Streets. Do I have to get tats and work out at a jail yard to do this one? Seems likely.
- Hot Male Yoga, Basic Training with a Sizzle How do you not rent this one? It features sinewy men in blue g-strings on the cover!
- Shiva Rea Yoga Trance Dance Makes me think I'll be joining the Whirling Dervishes. Whee!
