So, last week, I was reading thought my blog feed and suddenly found out about something BeachBody is putting out (this week apparently). Les Mills Body Pump! For some reason, I got super excited about this, since I used to hear such good things about Body Pump years ago at Video Fitness.
I used to have the VHS tape that I happened to score in a freecycle bag of fitness videos, but I don't know where it has vanished to. Really - it is such a motivating weight workout. Weight lifting set to great music. Sounds like just the motivation I need. So I find myself REALLY REALLY wanting this set...and I haven't even seen reviews yet. I totally need to put the brakes on myself!
Add to this the fact that I have that lovely Rip:60 suspension trainer hanging from my rafters and haven't done anything with it aside from some pushups and holding onto it when I stretch. I need to think logically about this.
I think I am going to take a page from The Great Fitness Experiment here and make a deal with myself. I am NOT going to buy Body Pump right away. I am going to put a condition on whether or not I get it at all. That condition is going to be commiting to the Rip:60 for 8 weeks. Doing the program as it's laid out and being consistent with my strength training over the winter.
IF I can stick with that...then I will EARN myself a Body Pump system (if I still want it after the reviews start flooding in)
Finally getting smart about using what I buy before adding to the collection :)
