As I inch closer to 40, I notice that it isn’t as easy to shed the pounds I gain as it used to be. Each time we vacation there are a few pounds that just don’t want to come off once we’re back home. Even when I try really hard watching what I eat, and making sure that I exercise every day. So I’m always up to try new fitness routines or meal plans that might help me to get those stubborn pounds off my frame.
Mitch Gaylor, Olympic Gymnast, has a DVD workout program called ‘Melt it Off with Mitch‘.
The secret of Mitch’s exercise program is leveraged core action, using Mitch’s calorie melting weapon, the G-Ball. Each of Mitch’s innovative exercises engages the core and radiates outward targeting every major muscle in your body to sculpt beautiful abs, strong lean arms and to lift and firm the buns and legs.
Combine the workout program with the included meal plan and you could be off to a new, healthier you.
The complete program comes with a 2lb G-Ball, the 3 Day Kick Start and Melt It Off Program (your meal plans, and guide to which DVDs to use on a daily basis), Cardio Burn & Sculpt Workout DVD, Sizzlin Abs Workout DVD and High Calorie Melt Workout DVD.
It’s easy to want to give up. It really kicked my butt the first few days. I was sore. Everywhere. I laughed and my abs were sore. Walking up and down the stairs, my thighs were sore. Sitting down, my butt was sore! But guess what? That means it was working! I was targeting muscles that I obviously didn’t work out much before that. While it was painful I admit, it also made me feel good in a way, knowing that I was doing something great for my body.
Let me tell you….the first day I did the workout routine, I felt EVERY ONE of my 36 years of age (actually I felt even older!). I thought I was in decent shape before I started this, but I guess I wasn’t, at least not for the areas that the workout targets.
This program is not for the faint of heart. The workouts themselves are not overly difficult, some of the exercises require a certain amount of flexibility but Mitch explains them all on different levels, so if you’re not ready to take on the ‘gold’ version of it, you can choose to do it on a ‘silver’ or ‘bronze’ level to make it easier on you. The goal is to get a few correct, muscle targeting repetitions done, rather than a bunch of incorrect ones that do you no good.
The food plan is good too. Lots of protein and fresh fruits and vegetables. If you eat a lot of carbs (like I do), it’s sort of a detox for your body. By following the meal plan you’re supposed to be able to increase the amount of calories your body burns. I’ll be honest, I know I couldn’t eat this way all the time. I really do like my carbs…a lot. But I do think it will help me reduce how many I eat, which I guess is a start.
So did it really ‘Melt it Off’? I didn’t get the results that many of the typical people did; 5.5 lbs, 1 size and/or .72 inches, in the first 3 days. I am in a normal weight range for my height though, so I didn’t expect whopping results like that anyway.
In the two weeks I’ve been using it, I have lost .5 lbs (which is a healthy weight loss), and I forgot to measure myself before I started, but I must have lost an inch or so, because I have a relaxed fit on a pair of pants that when we came home from our cruise in April were too tight to wear.
