I'm not exactly what one would call a workout buff... in fact up until 2 years I really hated exercising. That was until I discovered Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis. Enter a life changing relationship with working out. With the help of TA and her DVD's, I do it at least an hour a day up to 6 days a week. And, shockingly, I don't hate it!! In fact I really love it. I also love that I can take my workouts anywhere - even on vacation and trips (I know - who would have thought!)
The other best part about Metamorphosis is that you don't need that much to do the workout! As far as actual equipment, all Tracy asks you to use is a yoga mat and a set of 3 pound weights. That's it! The rest of the time you're using your own body - it's pretty amazing.
For me to get through that hour though, I need bright colors. I absolutely love the pants that Tracy recently added to her collection. And as much of a budget shopper that I am, spending a bit extra on workout gear is totally worth it. I always make sure that I'm wearing at least one bright item so that when I see a peek-a-boo of neon from my socks or spy my pink pants in the gym mirror, it gives me a little burst of energy to keep going (true story) Check out this look I sported a few weeks ago! I've also discovered to leave behind super tight tanks or tops and instead embrace soft cotton that's breathable and comfortable.
Although Metamorphosis is based on working out in your living room, I need an extra boost of motivation. So I take my computer down to our apartment's gym and create a little space to complete my workout. I get a lot of funny looks since it's not what one would consider a "traditional" workout. But after 3 weeks of my body tightening and muscles I never knew I had showing up, I could care less how many stares come my way. But, this means I need an awesome pair of headphones to blast Rihanna and an armband to hold my phone. These pink Yurbud headphones are the best pair I have ever used. I swear I have the tiniest ears ever and these buds don't slip or fall out no matter how much I sweat or bounce around. They're phenom!!!
So that's what I need to get my sweat on - what's your favorite way to workout??
