45 min RPM class

I know what you mean about needing fuel, Kim!! I was dying for a decent meal after gym this morning!!

PS What's leg magic like?!?! I've always been curious because I think it would work a lot better than all the other crap out there.

I haven't used it much Em, but as soon as you use it you can feel it engaging the muscles so something's working.

The DVD you get with it takes you through approx 13 minutes of leg magic and strength exercises that gets the heart rate up. Each exercise changes every minute. I made it to three minutes but will say in my defence that I had been using my leg muscles vigorously for the previous hour and ten minutes.

I only got it because another lady I know who is a regular gym goer got one after having used a friends. I knew she wouldn't buy anything that didn't make you work.

I have stopped my gym membership for the time being to make me use my home equipment and since I was (though not now) running three days a week the cardio was well in hand.

Getting back on track.

Thanks for the info, Kim! I think it still has bogus claims to get you to have a hot body in no time at all, but it sounds like it gets the heart rate up a lot more than most of the products that are similar!

I was tempted to stop my gym membership too seeing as I'm doing C25K, but then I realised I'd miss RPM classes too much, and I needed it for the weights equipment seeing as I don't have anything apart from a few light dumbbells at home. I wish I had weights equipment at home!!!

It seems good Em, but I will let you know how I go. On the DVD, the gal says you need to do it 4-5 times a week for a month before you start seeing results so that is realistic I think. No, it is not going to make you go from unfit to taught and trim in four weeks but it does definitely work the legs and butt, no doubt. You can feel the outer and inner thighs engage just to move the damn thing.

I tried to find a gym recommendation before buying it as I know no personal trainer will tell anyone to get one of those stupid ab thingys, so I hoped to find something about it and couldn't so went with my friend's recommendation.

Yeah, let me know, Kim!! I can imagine you'd feel it working pretty quick! It's pretty much like a harder version of the machine at the gym where you sit and open and close your legs. Harder because you're using your body weight rather than sitting.

Good luck with it, looking forward to hearing how it goes :D

So we had a bad weekend with food and lack of exercise (other than standing around for hours at a function on saturday) but yesterday we went out to my partner's parents farm. We took out chickens for his mother's birthday, and had to do some work on the chicken coop. So there were a couple of hours in the sun digging up rocks, lifting rocks, dragging trolley with rocks, moving rocks, plus other random work to get it ready! Sweaty, hot and felt like I had worked out!
