BJ Gaddour spoiled me for all other workouts!

I did SpeedShred until January and had so much fun, the workouts were short and functional with sometimes high weights and the results are clearly phenomenal! I really got more of an athletic look, my overall strength improved, I obvisously lost a lot of body fat, I got rid of my back pain completely, I even slimmed down at my thighs (which is my stubborn fat store for bad times). Even my hubby agrees. I'd also recommend SpeedShreds HEAT workouts, because they incorporate, what I like to do for recreation: Foundation training, kickboxing, stretching and foam rolling.

Since I finished the rotation a few weeks ago I've tried to get back in the casual workout vibe, doing, what comes to mind first, switching styles, doing a ZWOW here, some weights in between, some cardio there, etc.

But it doesn't work! I tried NROLA to get serious, but it's so slow. Today I surrendered and did BJs Boot Camp workout. Boy, that was fun!

I simply cannot stand boring or slow workouts any longer; yesterday I tried Xtrain Super Cuts and was super annoyed about the uninspirational tempo and presentation, the constant fishing for new equipment made me nearly cry out loud for fun (or help?).
When I even think of a lot of my DVDs I get bored. There are only a couple of other trainers, who I'd consider working out with right now (Tracie Long, Kelly Coffey-Mayer and Ilaria come to mind), but even they cannot produce the amount of energy and fun I get through SpeedShred.

Thanks BJ! Nicely done, now I'm fixated on you.

::Sigh::..I so did not need to see this because I am having all sorts of trouble with my thighs. I know I'm going to regret opening up this can of worms but who is BJ Gaddour and does he have a DVD?

I found him on YouTube and he's a cutie. I've found a few none/low impact HIIT moves that I can add into my walking workouts. Thanks for the shout out because I had not been aware of him until your post!

He has streaming videos, too. You can try it free for 30 days. At least it was 30 days when I tried it a few months ago:

His videos are really good. There just hasn't been much talk here. But his workouts are solid, and I just love his personality.

Thanks Debbi! I'm on his website now and I think that I might go for these over the DVD's because of the variety. I also like the hotel room workouts because of my crazy travel schedule.

You're welcome. I think he even has more available now. There's definitely variety.

I love BJ too. His workouts are short and effective and he makes me laugh like no other instructor does. Delta Fit is a keeper for me and my DH.
