Final Recap: Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation Preview

***I received a free 4 week preview of the Michelle Bridges 12 week Body Transformation through my Ambassadorship with Girls Gone Sporty****

I was so thrilled to be able to preview this program, Michelle Bridges is an amazing trainer, with an unending supply of advice and encouragement, and I am glad she is making the leap from Australia to the United States! I was unable to give the plan 100% of my effort, because I have been fighting the never-ending month long cold, but I still manages to see some amazing results! I feel stronger, and I learned about some new healthy recipes that my family enjoyed (which is NOT always the case, what a bunch of wimps when it comes to healthy eating!
The last Motivational Video was about going to bed early. This is something I have recently started focusing on, and getting the hubs involved as well, and it is definitely paying off. A good night sleep is so key in everything that we do from day to day!

What I learned:
  • I am not as fit as I thought in some cases. Some of the exercises in her videos really kicked my butt.
  • I am pretty flexible!
  • I *can* hold the crow pose, for about 10 seconds, and I cannot wait to improve that time!
  • I totally suck at following food plans! The menu and recipes were amazing, but after a few days, I slack off, and that is something that I really need to work on!
  • I need a wide variety of workout options. I like classes and DVDs, and the program has that, but there isn't as much variety as I would like! You do the same toning workout from week to week, and I get bored way too easy! Luckily, there are also workouts for you to print out as well, to spice things up!
  • Having a month long cold sucks.
  • I *can* cross train while I am training for a race (after race, after race, after race)
  • I LOVE yoga. Michelle is not super flexible, but she has great staff members who are, and her video was one of my faves.
  • I like being better at yoga than Michelle. It gave me joy.
  • The forums were a wealth of information and motivation! The staff participates, as well as other members, and you can see how many rounds of the program each person has completed in the sidebar under their name and photo!
  • I look forward to participating in this program once I am well! Imagine the progress that I will make!
What's that? You want to participate, too? I don't blame you! Where else can you get customizable meal plans, weekly motivational videos, workout plans with several choices, and a great support system? The food plan can be catered to fit any dietary restrictions you may have, and there are so many different choices! Once you have chosen your meals, you can even print out a shopping list!
You can pick out a training plan as well, whether you want to lose weight, tone up, or train for a race!
