42 year old. Wife, mother of two and dog owner. I came across “BodyRock” in February 2010 but started experimenting with the approach in April 2010. That is when I first made the switch from the gym to exercising at home exclusively, using my own bodyweight for resistance following HIIT style of training. I saw more results in the first two weeks from this type of training than from 6 months of dedicated weight training and cardio at the gym. I haven’t been back to the gym since! I love that I can keep myself fit by using my own bodyweight.
Exercising at home and on my own forces me to be accountable. No excuses.
I am an explorer of ideas and concepts, which means that my beliefs are constantly shifting and evolving. Now in 2012, it has been over a year since I have stopped doing any BodyRock-style workouts. Click this link to view my current Daily Body Maintenance Schedule. Even as I write this, the schedule has evolved since its original printing.
It’s all about daily body maintenance.
In 2010, I stumbled upon an an exercise site called BodyRock. I was so inspired and motivated by the short duration-high intensity format that I wanted to share it with everyone, but for some it was overwhelming, which prompted me to start my own blog for those who need a more gentle and basic starting point.
