December 28, 2011 Workout

Take a spin class at the gym or go out for a bike ride through town. I did a 75 minute spin class today and torched 550 calories!

If you can't get out, then pop in a workout DVD at home or go for a 5 mile run on the treadmill.

A workout DVD I like is Jillian Michaels Extreme Shed and Shred (12.99 at Jillianmichaels.com). It has two incredibly tough 45 minute workouts that will leave you feeling shredded in no time. The DVD offers beginner, intermediate and advanced moves so whatever your level, you can use this DVD.

Good luck on your workout!
