WORKOUT VIDEO 1 - Ground Zero Jumps, LOW Impact

I keep repeating that I am a total slug who rolls her eyes when people talk about 5k runs and even though I now work out, please understand that IT IS AGAINST MY WISHES.

I wish I could push a button and be a size 10 with no backfat, eat what I wanted and lay around in the evenings watching TV or goofing off on Facebook... I wish... I wish... I wish... fat chance.

The Truth of WLS

Most people who have weight loss surgery believe it will complete, automatic and forever. It. Is. Not.

Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is!

This is a NO to LOW IMPACT cardio workout that you can do at home. Your FEET do not leave the floor. THIS IS A NO EXCUSE WORKOUT FOR BARIATRIC LEVEL ONE. Let's hear the excuses now as to WHY you can't do this? Think... think... think... think... think... there ARE none. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada.

This exercise will set the weight loss process on FIRE. This is something you must do to live. You will FEEL GREAT and BE PROUD after this little teeny tiny workout. I promise.

Watch the video at page bottom and learn how to do the jump. The key is in the HINGE at the hips rather than squatting with your thighs. Think about it while you figure it out.

Energy Reset

Movement makes you feel more ENERGETIC, improves your MOOD, boosts your CONFIDENCE, and makes you feel STRONG.

You get back MORE than you GIVE

Movement has an AFTERBURN EFFECT, raising your METABOLISM for HOURS after you you've stopped your motion. Working out is the gift that keeps on giving!

Where to start? How bout REALITY!

Let's not have delusions that you are going to run a 5k in two months. It's better to have realistic and sustainable goals. We are going to have a FIVE MINUTE work out on this first day. Everyone can do it. Everyone has time and your feet do not leave the floor.
