Mama Wants Her Body Back DVD: Review and Giveaway

From the time I was born until about the age of 25, I was thin.  I never had to watch what I ate mainly because I was a dancer and burned calories like crazy.  I became pregnant with my first daughter at the age of 29 and managed to only gain about 20 pounds (thanks to gestational diabetes, ugh).  However, even though I managed to take the weight off fairly quickly, my body was NOT the dancer’s body to which I was accustomed.  After the birth of my second daughter in 2008, things continued to go downhill.  My metabolism was never the same and my abs continue to be non existent.   Guess what?  This Mama wants her body back!!

Recently, I was introduced to the “Mama Wants Her Body Back!” DVD series and was more than willing to give it a try.  Because I work outside the home, run this blog, and raise two children, I have little time for exercise.  The fact that this series can be done from the comfort of my living room at a schedule that is convenient for me is ideal.  A little about the program:

“Whether you just recently had a baby or have been carrying around extra pregnancy weight for a while, the new Mama Wants Her Body Back™ from mother and fitness instructor Lisa Druxman is your solution.  Lisa’s takes her expertise in pre and post natal fitness to the next level and precision sculpts arms, abs and butts. This fitness program is intended specially for moms and addresses the biological changes to the body that occur throughout pregnancy.

The Mama Wants Her Body Back program includes three 20-minute total body workouts and a bonus DVD of three 10-minute abs workouts. To further help you practice a healthier lifestyle, a program guide and food journal are also included.  The entire package is just $9.99+S&H and available at Lisa Druxman, M.A. has been in the fitness industry for 20 years. She is the creator of Stroller Strides and Fit4Baby and the author of Lean Mommy.”

After my daughters were asleep, I decide to pop in the first ten minute ab workout video because I feel like this is what I need the most work on.  I managed to get through the entire video (ok, I had to stop once, but it was a quick break).  I love the fact that Lisa has assistants who demonstrate the various levels of difficulty so it is easy to modify the exercise to suit your needs.  I was proud that I made it through the session and I didn’t feel very sore….until the next day! HOLY MOLY did my abs burn!  So I knew that the exercises geared towards my lower tummy pooch made a difference!

I have been doing the 20 minute cardio and 10 minute abs for about 2 weeks now. I do not expect to see physical differences so quickly (I will spare you the pictures), but I can tell you that I can complete the exercises easier now than when I started.  I am building endurance and burning calories!  In addition to the DVD, you will also receive instructions on how to tailor the program as well as tips to eat healthy and a journal.

The DVD series can be purchased for $42.97!  Much cheaper than a gym membership!
