• FitnessGlo Review & Giveaway

    May 24, 2013

    I recently had the opportunity to try FitnessGlo through a partnership with FitFluential. (Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post, but the opinions expressed are all my own.) I recently took three weeks off from CrossFit (a little experiment to see if the high intensity workouts were affecting my UC symptoms – there was no connection, things actually got worse), so having these workouts literally at my fingertips was the perfect opportunity for me to try something new and stay active.

    FitnessGlo is a website that features all kinds of exercise videos in a variety of styles, levels, and durations. You can even pick the instructor. I really loved the variety of workouts, which made it easy to select one based on how I was feeling that day (i.e. Strength verses Stretch).

    I also really loved how straightforward it was to pick a workout. I know similar programs like this can be a little complicated with all sort of options, but FitnessGlo has a great search option that allows you to quickly select your workout based on specific criteria/preferences, so you can easily find a workout and just do it. For example, if you’re looking for a strength class, you can further refine your search based on teacher, level, and duration.

    Basically, you can drill down your search to something as specific as a 10-minute, upper body, Level 3 (Good to Glo) workout with Ilyse Baker, which is great if you’re short on time or want a specific workout to compliment your other fitness activities for the week or day, say if you’re a runner and want some strength training or a CrossFitter and want to do some mobility (stretching) work.

    Since I started my membership with FitnessGlo, I’ve done a bunch of workouts with Ilyse Baker. I took a dance class with her at Reebok during a blogger trip last year and really enjoyed her teaching style. She’s enthusiastic and motivating, but not over the top. Some of my favorite class with her: Strength Upper Body (10 minutes, Level 2), Strength Lower Body (10 minutes, Level 2), and Barre Blast – Total Body Sculpt (30 minutes, Level 3). You will definitely feel the burn on all three of those workouts! I also really liked the workouts with Amy Dixon. A couple of favorites: BOSU Interval Challenge, 45 minutes, Level 3 and All Over Sculpt, 20 minutes, Level 3.

    As you can see, I’m really enjoying my membership with FitnessGlo. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to compliment your current routine or just prefer working out at home, FitnessGlo is a fantastic option, especially for the price. Access to the FitesssGlo website costs just $12 a month, but you can try it out for free for 15 days before you commit to a membership.

    Giveaway time! Here is your chance to win a 90-day membership to FitnessGlo!

    To enter: Just leave a comment on this post about why you’d like to win a free 90-day membership to FitnessGlo. I’ll randomly pick one winner on Tuesday.

    Good luck!

    I recent started working from home so this would be perfect for me. I’m definitely looking for new workout options I can do from my living room!

    I would love to win this 90 day membership because as a nurse I work 12 hour days & cannot get to the gym after work. A quick & challenging workout from home would allow me to end my work day perfectly. :)

    I’ll be working some crazy hours at whole foods this summer, and these videos will be a good way to stay in shape without worrying about the timing of classes!

    My work schedule makes it hard for me to get to the classes at my gym so this would definitely help me get in some strength training and stretching (which right now I have just opted to neglect altogether).

    I just signed up for my first marathon and it would be the perfect strength training tool, especially for a grad student like me who can’t join a gym!

    This might be perfect for me because my baby has not done well at the daycare at my gym, I get pulled out of classes halfway through every time.

    I have to get up super early for work – so early, my gym isn’t open! This would motivate me to workout at home before starting my day.

    With a 3 year old at home plus a full time job, I never seem to have enough time to get to the gym (30 minutes away!) My DVD collection is getting stale as well!

    I’d love to win this because it’s going to be so much harder to make it to the gym while the kids home over the summer. This would definitely change things up and keep me motivated.

    I would really enjoy this 15 day trial/membership because I am moving to a new city soon and will be commuting a few days a week back to my in laws city about an hour away to work. I dont see the point in keeping my membership here since I wont technically live here anymore so this would be a great option!!!

    I don’t have a gym membership and my family is applying for welfare…I have a great passion for health and fitness but I never seem to have the opportunity to pursue it due to financial drawbacks.

    This would mean the world to me.
