I have followed Zuzana Light (BodyRock & ZWOW) for a while now. I have also tried out Fitness Blender.

What are some other free videos/trainers that I can follow? I like doing body weight training HIIT style or something similar.

How would l calculate calories burned doing the Leslie Sansone walking cd? There is not only walking, but kicks, weighted balls, stretching, etc.

Do you have amazon prime? Last time I checked, they had a bunch of Jillian Michaels videos there, free to stream if you're prime.

I really like Jessica Smith. She has free video on UTUBE or FaceBook Amazon prime members can also get Ann Smith stretching videos. She is really good for us "senior foxes".

Depends what you want to achieve. I love the 10 Minutes Solution Series on DVD; they're quite effective and you have the option of doing just one 10 minute sessions or doing them all or picking and choosing which one you want to do. They all contain 5 different 10-minutes programs on each DVD and cover everything from cardio / dancing / pilates / yoga / kickboxing etc. Easily available via Amazon.

The easiest way is to enter the walking / weights / stretching as separate entries in your exercise diary and selecting the duration of time. I wouldn't concern myself about entering the kicks.

I love the Tone It Up girls! I first found them through instagram and would get some great workouts from their blog. Now they have a tv show and their site is a bit more vamped up. I've never heard of fitness blender but I'll have to give that a go!

Hot5 is a free app you can download onto your smart device and is loaded with workout videos. It was featured on one of the morning news shows and said it was the best free fitness app out there.

I like warriorxfit.com. You sign up with a username and password, but it costs nothing and they don't send you e-mails. The workouts are about 20 mins and they kick butt. They mix up the workouts so it's different every day and you record your reps after each exercise so you can see how you did and if you want you can see the list of people who did the workout that day and how you compare. They are good, quick workouts. The only equipment they use are resistance bands, but you could probably use hand weights instead. They have a video before each move to show you correct form, then you do the move for 20 seconds, have a 10 second rest to record your results and you repeat the same move 6 times. There are 6 moves total per day and a pre and post stretch. Good workout if you're in a hurry or need a supplemental workout.
Goals for 2014:
Complete Couch to 5K- DONE!!!
Sign up for and complete a 5K- DONE!! 35 mins.
Plan at least 3 outings with the family that involve being active- 2 done
