Giveaway! Strong Body, Fit Body with Erin OBrien on DVD

Posted 01-26-2011 at 07:40 AM by Ellen

This contest is now closed! The winners have been announced in the last post.

Acacia provided this workout DVD set for this review plus a brand new Strong Body, Fit Body with Erin O’Brien on DVD for one lucky DiaperSwappers reader!

Strong Body, Fit Body with Erin O’Brien is, not surprisingly, all about strength training. You will need light hand weights to do this workout. With this DVD weight lifting becomes more interesting with Erin O’Brien’s encouragement as she guides you through set regimes that are specifically designed to make the most out of the effort you put in.

What I like about Erin O’Brien

She is spunky and energetic without being condescending. While she’s clearly in superior physical shape, she’s good about instructing from an understanding perspective. She’s even kind of funny and amusing. Best of all, she’s able to explain the movements, proper form, and correct technique in a non-technical way that anyone can understand. Sometimes fitness instructors get so caught up in their own worlds that they forget their audience and students include novice athletes, even those with little interest in achieving physical perfection and intense study of physical fitness. Instead they want the work out taught at their level, and Erin does just that.

However, don’t think that “at your level” means she goes easy on you. Not at all! She sure explains things well but she expects you to workout hard and make a difference in your body. Fortunately, Strong Body, Fit Body with Erin O’Brien on DVD is broken up into several sections so if you find it hard to keep up with her, you can just do your best and work a few sections at a time.

Workout Options:
Warm-Up (5 min.)
Circuit 1 (7 min.)
Circuit 2 (7 min)
Circuit 3 (7 min.)
From the Top (7 min.)
Floor Work (6 min.)
Cool Down (7 min.)

With sections this short you really have no excuse not squeeze in a quick workout.

My Favorite Part

During the credits the camera guy goes around asking the film crew “Why do you exercise.” The responses range from typical to terribly honest to hilarious. Don’t miss the amusement and enjoy the credits.

    I exercise to help me have more energy on a daily basis to keep up with my son! :-)

    I exercise to try and get my PCOS under control. Its also a little bit of ‘mommy’ time in my day :)

  3. Coolbeans1971 on January 26th, 2011 11:59 am

    I try to excercise when I can find time. I’m usually chasing my 6 little girls around, but that doesn’t really work on my “problem” areas!

  4. mtnmama on January 26th, 2011 12:03 pm

    To get into pre-baby shape!!

  5. devynstarr on January 26th, 2011 12:14 pm

    I exercise to feel better emotionally and physically. If i don’t get in some kind of physical exercise every day, I feel sluggish and tired. Staying consistent with working out has been one of the most difficult things about this pregnancy! I miss my days of endless energy, hopefully after she’s born in a couple months, I will be able to get back on track.

  6. tashaturservice on January 26th, 2011 1:12 pm

    I exercise to stay healthy for my family

  7. schmidtej on January 26th, 2011 4:41 pm

    For my mental health!

  8. hac1224 on January 26th, 2011 7:37 pm

    I should be exercising to keep my body healthy, but somehow life seems to keep me too busy to keep it up like I should.

  9. firststella on January 26th, 2011 11:44 pm

    Erin took me through pregnancy and kept me fit with her “Prenatal fitness fix” and it worked great!
    Now, I need strength and endurance for my DD :)

  10. Skittle on January 27th, 2011 12:16 am

    Exercise makes me feel better, physically and mentally. I want to be a good mentor for my daughter as well.

  11. ngil0910 on January 27th, 2011 7:30 am

    I excersize for physical and mental health. Just had a baby Sept. 2010 and am nursing, which, nursing for me means I am smaller that I was pre-pregnancy because all of my food goes to breastmilk/baby! So, honestly it’s hard to be motivated (since I’m not motivated by weight maintenance). But I do feel better phsycially and emotionally when I workout.

  12. Reuben Christopher on January 27th, 2011 8:36 am

    To get a better body after 3 babies! Plus I need to be in better shape to keep up with the kids!

  20. JP04JM08 on January 27th, 2011 8:38 pm

    I exercise because I’ll go nuts if I don’t! I watch my own kids plus another and we’re stuck inside most of the winter. It has been hazardous to the nerves and waistline!

  21. TiffanySmith on January 28th, 2011 12:06 am

    I exercise trying to get into prebaby shape, after having four sons back to back and being only 25 I would love to get my body back in shape! And I love that it gives me more energy especially when trying to keep up with my four sons!

  23. Sarah on January 28th, 2011 2:57 pm
