Favorite aspect of SISSFiT ELEVATE: I love everything about these workouts! To try and narrow it down, I love the convenience, the style and the efficacy. The convenience enables me to fit in workouts during my kid’s naps, but also enables me to workout when we are traveling, which we do quite a lot these days. I enjoy body-weight circuits because that’s the style of strength training I grew up doing as a gymnast. With this program I was able to do that while also incorporating running (something I have always hated...more on that below). The workouts are really well designed to incorporate full body strength as well as cardio into an easy to follow program.
What impact has SISSFiT ELEVATE had on your life: I count it a blessing that I’ve always enjoyed exercise. However, that being said, I have NEVER enjoyed running. I’ve always wanted to because it is such a great workout, but I’ve always found it boring and painful (not in a good way). The way Lauren and Kelly designed the cardio workouts has completely changed my opinion. I actually get excited about the running workouts! I love the intervals because it doesn’t get boring. Even the longer stretches in the endurance workouts are just the right length to still keep me engaged. And having the half mile run to check my progress every four weeks showed me that I was actually getting better at running in a short period of time, which was really encouraging. Overall this program was a tremendous help in getting back to a fitness level that I hadn’t been able to reach since having my second son. I can’t wait for version 2.0!
