At only 5’1 I have always been the small girl. I was small but definitely not toned and healthy. Two years ago, we moved to a big city and I was out of shape and miserable. I did a little walking in our previous town with my two young kids but not much else. The big city was overwhelming and I didn’t know anyone or have a support system. I was sad, sluggish, moody and napped all of the time. My husband decided to sign us up at a local gym connected to the golf course. It was small, had great childcare, and many times I was the only one in there. I got set up with a trainer and was learning so much and feeling better until they suddenly closed down my gym. I was crushed! We tried other small local gyms but they kept closing down. One would close down and another would take us in for a trial period. But I didn’t want to go to the “big” gyms because my daughter was freaked out enough.
We were ready to give more money to another gym until my husband saw a high school friend on Facebook. He looked incredible and told us all about his transformation from P90X. That was it! Why give money to a huge gym (that might close down) when we can invest it in a home gym? We put the money into a small tv, some weights and a few other things and set up shop in our unused front room. A few weeks later we were on our way to pushing play with P90X everyday. I loved it when I opened the box and it said “this is your gym for the next 90 days” on the inside cover. We decided, committed and are succeeding.
So I just bought this:

Yes. I'm a huge Chalene Johnson fan and I have a blast working out with her.
