    Everyone is jumping on the band wagon to commit to either diet, exercise or both. We have a gym at the apartments and I am definitey going back. You know, holidays and stuff I slacked off. Anyway, I also want to get a Yoga dvd for the home when not at the gym. I never did yoga dvds before and I read articles about yoga can really make you lose weights Does anyone do yoga here?. I just want the start up, less strenuous kind of yoga.

    Also since I use the elliptical at the gym I want to get a Ipod to listen to music. I searched in Ebay and there were several pages of Ipods, lordy. What is the best kind of Ipod when you exercise that is hands free..?? If anyone can suggest any kind of yoga dvds, or Ipods I would greatly appreciate that.

    I do not do yoga I have tried it and I am not limber enough for it. I love the elliptical machine! and you most definitely want to have a hands free device or something you can put your ipod in on your arm or even strap it to something. I love doing squats situps and lunges. planks are a part of yoga and they are not easy for long periods of time. If you do good with it and stick with it I am sure you will love it! It does take time as does everything else! But as long as you just stick with it you should be good.
    Also did you check your phone out to see if you could just download music on to it? If you have a smart phone (android or iphone) you should be able to download music for free!

    I don't do much yoga either. you can definitely find good reviews for different yoga DVDs if that's something you're interested in. you can always use your phone or an arm band for your iPod. I've been using Bluetooth headphones so I can run or lift without having to worry about wired when Im on a treadmill or elliptical or where to put my phone when im lifting and listening to music. you can find a pretty cheap pair on Amazon! Hope this helped! -83D-E0A

    Everyone makes fun of me but I bought DDP Yoga. DDP stands for Diamond Dallas Page. He was a wrestler who created his own form of Yoga. I lost 20 lbs by doing this and following eating habits I learned from a book called The Digest Diet. I became familiar with both by watching The Doctors. DDP Yoga is easy to do. At first the moves were difficult but I mastered them pretty quick. The main thing is building up the strength to hold the moves and do the push-ups. I recently purchased PiYo and just started it. It is more difficult than DDP starting out. But I am going to hang in there. I turn 50 years old this year so my goal is to become as healthy as I can. Good luck with what ever you choose to do.
