Fitness Bliss 101: The “Day-Off” Workout

With all the dieting pills available today it is beyond obvious that people want to get in better shape in the easiest and most convenient way possible! They want to lose weight, tone up, and be a better, healthier, sexier version of themselves [well, who doesn’t?!].  The problem with dieting pills is usually that you are giving your money away for something that will not only NOT give you the body you want, but it also is generally not FDA approved and has some serious risks involved.  So you are compromising your bank account, your desire to live a long and healthy life, and you are not even getting anything out of it- no booty like Beyonce, no abs like Shakira!  Nonetheless, people use these gimmicks [and lets face it! that’s what they are!] because we all want to get as thin as possible without putting in the long hours at the gym…

Mama Fitness always claimed that in order to get amazing results to make you Tyra-Banks-Worthy, you needed to do cardio for at least 40 minutes so your heart rate could get to the “fat burning zone” and start to do some damage control.  But then after that 40 minutes you needed to keep your heart rate up and do weights [or some form of toning exercises] in order tokeep your fat-burning-heart-rate working throughout your body!! Oh and P.S. you should do it 5-6 times a week to really see results, and 3-4 if you’d like to get to your fitness goal by the end of the year…… I am exhausted just describing this process!! And that didn’t even include warm-up and cool down.

I did those kind of workouts for over a year, and always felt like I was getting no where.  And surprise!! By the end of the year- I wasn’t anywhere near I wanted to be.  Jokes on me…. My gym was that much richer and I was that much unhappier!!

So after putting in the hard long hours at the gym, and still getting no where I wanted an easy way out!!  And that is when the Day-Off work out system reeled me in!!  The work out group called “Ripped Body Boot Camp” in Solana Beach & Carmel Valley only advises for the members to workout in our group 3 days a week- and to take the other 4 off!! More days of rest and relaxation than working out?! Yes please!!  Not only that- but when those 3 days a week do come around to work out, it is only for 45 minutes!!  Gym workout timing- that is only when you are staring to burn the calories… At Ripped Body Boot Camp, you are done by that time, and you have burning more calories and received a better and funner workout than ever possible in the lonely gym where everyone is silent.

On the day off system- the instructors Rob & Diana even advise you to not to workout on your resting days because you get that much of a kick ass workout in 45 minutes than you ever would alone at the gym in 80 minutes!  If you are considering a gimmick that would screw with your health, drain your pockets, and still leave all your weight in tact then consider this: working out at Ripped Body Boot Camp LOOKS like the gimmick answer because it is so easy and convenient.  However instead of keeping your fat intact- it will melt away!! And your health will be better than it was at 16!!  Who can argue that this method even has a down side?!
