Finding time to workout is a constant struggle for me. That, and let’s be honest, also finding the motivation. Having a variety of options is my ideal state but sometimes financially it’s limiting. I don’t want to join a bunch of different gyms and I have yet to find one that provides everything I could ever want, with classes on my schedule, within budget, and with daycare.
So, often I find that I have to get creative and shop around and use what’s available. I’m always looking for intro rates and free memberships and I finally decided to try TMAC Fitness. I have seen him on social media and a lot of the Whole30 community loves him. I figured I’d give it a shot. Here is my honest review of the plan (not endorsed whatsoever) and also some other fitness resources I like to use.
TMAC Fitness the positives:
Oh my gosh do the workouts make me sweat! It’s great, I really feel like I get a great workout. Also it’s only 20 minutes which is ideal for me. Things that take an hour are really hard to do consistently. I also love that you need no weights whatsoever and can do all the workouts barefoot. This is great any time of of day but especially for me when I often workout after the little one is bed. The website has quite a variety of workouts and I feel like it would take me a long time to get through them all or get bored. The workouts themselves are high quality as far as production and Todd’s personality is great.
Honestly very few here but one is the price, it’s comparable to some of my local gyms but not a dealbreaker for me. Might be for some since you’re only getting one product for the price. Another negative for me is that some of the workouts are only about 3 moves on repeat for the whole time. I sometimes like a little more variety. Finally the workouts are streamed through a website. I’d love it if there was an app so they played better on my smart TV or tablet.
Overall this is great program and super convenient for a busy mom like myself. Lately I’ve been incorporating them in between getting outside with the baby and spin classes that I take locally.
