Broke? Get Your Ass Kicked!

Sweating your stress away can help you deal with the state of the economy. Really.

Since we're not going out and spending money on clothes or dinners or yes ... the gym, it's likely we're sitting on the couch eating junk food and drinking wine. Although this sounds kinda fantastic, it's not doing anything to truly relieve our stress. Hmm ... why not pop in a video (not a movie, a workout video) and sweat a little. Did you know it actually "decreases production of stress hormones and counteracts stress. It's as effective as anti-depressants." No, it will not increase the numbers in your bank account, but taking control of your health will help you feel better about everything ... including that extra glass of wine you'll have later after the workout's done. Here are our personal faves: 

Work out all your tension with Billy Blanks' famous taebo video. Only $5 on Amazon!
Sculpt your way to a ballet body. $39.99
Zumba is the perfect workout for the Latin music lover. Dance your stress away! $26.95
Barry's Bootcamp is the #1 interval training workout out there. Biggest Loser trainer Bob Harper is a huge fan! It's been featured in US weekly, People, Access Hollywood, and Allure magazine.
Hollywood's favorite yoga class. Relax while getting a kick-butt workout. $16.95

Exercise dvds are the best! Think about it.
1- you do not have to use up gas going to a gym.
2- you have no excuse for not working out, its in your living room
3- no crazy gym membership, (curves for women is a rip off!)
4- take good care of the dvd, and you will have a great workout 4ever!

I have used the taebo and absolutely LOVE IT! It really helped me lose weight and gets me sweating. It’s the ultimate in de-stressing.
Thanks momlogic, i needed a reminder! hey i’d like to try the bootcamp
