TurboFire Day 61: Fire 55EZ (Guest Starring: Coach John)

Mar 9, 2012

Alright guys so today is Day 61 of my TurboFire adventure and I had Fire 55EZ. I am totally exhausted today, I got home from work with no energy but was surprised when my wonderfully husband had allowed himself to be peer pressured to working out with me again. Shout Out and tons of thanks go to Tim for that! So back my popular demand my husband and I tackled Fire 55EZ together today and it made it a lot more fun! This workout is tough and having someone go through it with you takes your mind off the tough and allows you to have fun! My wonderful husband is so athletic but in this video you will see he is a bit lost from time to time as we all are as we tried to get those fast paced steps down. You will notice however he is stronger in some areas then I am. It’s wonderful when we can workout together for 2 reasons. One as I said earlier, it is just that much more fun, and two because it really shows you guys all some diversity. We all have strengths and weaknesses and this shows you how TurboFire works for both men and women, people just starting out and those more advanced, it’s great to show you side by side comparisons on how this workout can work for you.

So you start with the warm which kind of got him used to some of the cues and moves, but it’s more face paced then I realized, because I am used to the warm up by now, but as he was trying to follow along she moves quickly. Then once we started the dance sequences that’s where the comedy begins! He did so well, I’m not trying to make it seem like he didn’t but he would lead with the wrong leg and do his own thing through a lot of it so he could keep his heart rate up even if it wasn’t the exact move. I’d like you to take notice however that I have been doing this workout for 2 ½ months now and I know the moves and I can move fast, but there are still some areas he kills me on. For instance Tuck Jumps in the Firedrill he gets some serious air and I’m barely off the ground. Some of his punches and intensity are awesome and better than I have done over time. So there is some carry over effect from his own training and I’m so proud of him and so happy to have gotten to work out with him today. He always makes me smile and how can you not have fun smiling and working out together.

I love that Beachbody has brought us together in a new way. We always had hobbies and activities to do as couple but this has us put or health and fitness as a priority and more than that as an activity that we can do and progress through while supporting one another. I am not a workout junkie but it feels less like working out when we can do the programs together, so I’m hoping for some more joint programs in the future. Today my energy was low about a 4, I drank 8 glasses of water, I only got 5 hours of sleep the night before, I ate within my calorie range, and had Shakeology, today’s Recipe was again Mango Breeze. I will say my energy level went up as I was working out and having a good time so that was good, an instant mood booster! So other than that check out this video of John and I as its tons of fun and we hope you like it!
