Thank you to Ubisoft for providing me with a copy of Your Shape: Fitness Evolved 2012 and sponsoring this fitness diary series. Please click here to learn more about Ubisoft. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective. All opinions are my own.
I met my objective, 360 minutes of activity in four weeks! I had a slow start since during the first week I wasn’t up for doing the medium activity exercises that qualified to be counted toward my objective.
One of the activity sets is a set created in a partnership with Humana, Inc.
It has three workout programs: Strengthen Your Heart, focused on high blood pressure; Active Kids, targeted at preventing childhood obesity; and Aging With Grace, designed to help elder mobility and agility. These were a little tougher for me than I thought they would be. However, I did notice one of the benefits of using the Your Shape program. Several times I had decided to give up or slow down but when the next exercise in the routine came on the screen, I’d try it and get back into the swing of it.
My weight is still edging up, which means I’m still building muscle (I hope). I definitely have more energy and more stamina. I’m able to many of the 15+ minute routines without too much trouble. I’m still not doing too much jumping around, but I can tell there’s been a big improvement when doing exercises where I need to kick or bring up my knees.
I’ll be posting one more diary update next week. Here’s week 1 and last week. After that, we’ll be giving away a free copy of YFSE to a random commenter chosen from the comments on one of the five diary posts, including this one.
PS I still haven’t missed a day since I started the Sunday after Thanksgiving.
