Jari Love - Get Ripped - Review & Giveaway

If you have been a follower of my blog for more than 5 minutes you know that I am currently on a weight loss journey. I started at 190 lb and I am now 165 lb at 5'6". I'm feeling good and would like to lose about 10-15 more pounds. I truly believe the key to achieving a healthy body weight is moderation. I still eat chocolate, I still eat bread, I still eat cheese .. but all in moderation.

I have also been consistently active over the past four months. I started by walking, then taking longer walks, then doing step aerobics and now I've started strength training. I don't go to a gym and honestly feel I don't need to .. there are so many options out there to increase your fitness level without going to a gym.

I recently had the opportunity to review a set of Get Ripped exercise dvds by Jari Love. The critically acclaimed Get Ripped series enables individuals to burn up to three times more calories than the traditional weight-training program, and has received rave reviews from fitness critics throughout North America since the first title debuted in late 2005.

Jari Love Get Ripped Fitness dvds have been featured in magazines like Shape, Oxygen and Fitness.

The first Get Ripped Fitness dvds I chose to try from the collection was Get Ripped and Chiseled.

What did I think of it? I really really liked it. The exercises are straightforward and the entire workout has a no nonsense feel which I can really appreciate. The workout is challenging and I did take a few breaks throughout the workout. Modifications are continually demonstrated and Jari is motivating and very positive without being cheesy if you know what I mean!

I could feel all my muscles working .. I was drenched in sweat by the time I was done and felt like a wet noodle afterwards! I have no doubt that these are effective workouts and plan on incorporating them into my exercise routine.
