Fitness Friday: Vicky's 7 Day Slim Review

Vicky's 7 Day Slim
on DVD - £13.00

When I was in uni and had a lot more time on my hands I felt a lot more motivated to head to the gym, go out a long walk, hop on the treadmill or do video after video on Blogilates. Since becoming a full time primary school teacher my spare time is a lot less to come by. A lot of my evenings are spent planning, marking, laminating or hunting for resources. By the time I've done all my work I don't fancy pulling on my gym gear and spending ages working up a sweat. I can, however, give up just 10 minutes of my day... everyday!

The thing that appealed to me most about Vicky's 7 day slim is you only need to dedicate 10minutes of your day. The idea is you do the same workout for 7 days before moving onto the next. I like the idea of seeing and feeling yourself improve by doing the same moves then moving on to challenge yourself and still see positive results.

Since buying this through iTunes I've used it for 2 and a half weeks. I grew to enjoy week 1's workout, especially the 'gorillas'. I found week 2 quite a bit harder and always found myself feeling puffed out and sweaty. So far week 3 seems a lot easy and I'm really enjoying it. The videos are a good mix of exercises that use your own body weight as a resister

You definitely need to combine this with a healthy eating plan, there's no way 10minutes of high intensity training is going to work on it's own. I've seen good results so far. I haven't weighed myself to see whether I actually have managed the '5 pounds in 7 days' but the exercise has worked well. My arms feel and look stronger. My stomach is starting to feel flatter and look less bloated. I don't think I'll ever be happy with my legs so lets not go there.. 

So if you're short on time but have quite good self control when it comes to food then I recommend Vicky's 7 Day Slim for seeing results.
