2021 Hits and Misses

Yoga Foundations with Travis Eliot
Walk Strong 6 Week Transformation with Jessica Smith

unsure - too early to tell:
Boss Bands Total Body Workout with Cathe - i liked her Travel Fit band workout better. i'll keep trying this newer one and decide.

Endurance 100, 110, & 120 Interval Training 3 DVD Set - Linda Wooldridge; i'm finding that i prefer Linda's pilates offerings over all of the styles i've tried.

Feel Good Series - Linda Wooldridge; i thought this would be an Ellen Barrett-like workout, but it's not. in fact, i can't distinguish it from Linda's other workouts.

Miyagi: Wax on, right hand. Wax off, left hand. Wax on, wax off. Breathe in through nose, out the mouth. Wax on, wax off. Don't forget to breathe, very important.

disclosure: in the years 2002-2004 i had a professional relationship with a distributor of fitness videos; see profile.

I only purchased two workout DVDs so far this year - yippee !! (Cathe Boss Bands workouts; haven't tried them yet.)

Mainly kept to my no-buy pledge for the year!
Finally starting to make it through all the DVDs I already own & finding some gems I really enjoy. Really appreciating Jessica Smith ...

As I go thru my DVDs, I'm finding out that I no longer like ones that I thought I liked in the past, such as the FitPrimes ...

GrowwithJo on YT: great energy and music and I love her walking workouts

Leslie, Jessica, Pahla B.- old favorites that are staples in my exercise life

GetHealthyU TV- love Chris Freytag and this subscription was so worth it


Tone It Up- I canceled my subscription when it was due for renewal in March. I used to love TIU but the messaging has changed so much and K&K just don't seem invested in it anymore. It just isn't the same.

Beach Body online- just not my style of workouts anymore. Subscribed last year but just canceled. For people who like BB workouts, it is a good subscription to have and has good variety.

Hit - Barre 3 Subscription - Just enjoy it

Miss - Essentrics Subscription - I have so many Seasons but wanted to try the new instructors. Nothing wrong with them, just too many choices.

Thanks Jeanine, I love these discussions.

So far 2021 has been noteworthy for my austerity. I did not buy one single DVD! In fact I've been selling, donating and giving away.

  • Alice Bracegirdle's Shakti Warrior program on DailyOm
  • Glo subscription when it was active
  • Ellen Barrett's Bikini Ready Fast, my first trade in five years!
  • Lucy Wyndham-Read (YT)
  • Yoga with Kassandra (YT) - surpassing SarahBeth as my favorite YT guru, she is now my go-to yogini
  • Discovering short yoga in bed routines (YT)

  • Suddenly losing my Kundalini spark and not using my beloved RaviAna DVDs since winter. What happened?
  • Gym being closed for a few months
  • Heat waves impacting my outdoor walking program
  • Gave up on Essentrics TV, started bothering my back

I never thought it would happen, but DVDs seem to be falling to the wayside for me. The ones I'm keeping are mostly vintage.

Hit: Barre 3 subscription. I have used it a least once, sometimes 4x per week, since subscribing in April.
Miss: ALO subscription. I let it lapse before COVID but got sucked in again during a sale. It's all very pretty but I don't know what it is about it that gives me dread.

Hit: Senior Shape and Lively Ladies you tube channels

Partly a hit: Jessica Smith Lift and Shift. I think it’s excellent, but at 61, I just can’t do the program as written. I’ll probably add in a strength workout once a week.

Miss: dvds I’ve picked up at Goodwill. I never click with them and always donate them back.
