Ok here it is.....My real raw and honest thoughts on the new Country Heat Program from Autumn Calabrese! If you have followed my journey at all you know that I started out my journey with Beachbody at About 140 lbs with the 21 day fix! I adored that program and the creator of it Autumn. When I heard they were coming out with a dance program...my heart sank. I do like country music not the twangy old timey country music but the new age kind...my mind went right to line dancing. I am not a fan of line dancing, I am already fit and wasn't sure what the program had to offer me. needless to say this is pretty close to how I felt when I heard of the program!
I tried the program during a sneak peak and .....I LOVED the music. It was not what I had imagined at all. I was also worried about the fact that I have 2 left feet...I don't know about you but I LOVE to dance just not that great at it! have you ever watched a dance based movie like step it up and been in your seat jamming away proclaiming to all your friends " I could so do that!!!" and say we should take dance classes!!!! Yeah....that's me. I wanna be a dancer but my inner coordination, says think again white girl lol! I loved that it is only 2 steps that I had to learn and then started on new ones. No long routine to remember! Here I was after my first workout!!!!
Let's first start off my saying I officially take back every bad thing I have ever said about Zumba!!! That first was freaking fun!!! I was sweating like crazy and had burned 238 calories which for my 4'11 small frame is amazing. I was dancing clapping and smiling my way though my workout. The first week I stuck to my nutrition plan ( which includes wine and chocolate !!!) I lost 3 lbs breaking a plateau and getting to 110.6 lbs! ALL this from dancing!
When I say this program is for everyone I kid you not! I have women in my challenge group who have not worked out in years and were able to finish an entire workout without feeling like they wanted to quit because it was to hard. I have people who are already fit getting a great cardio workout while dancing! This program is literally for EVERYONE!
I am so excited to run a group with other ladies doing this same program because we can laugh at our left feet and show our sweaty selfies and encourage each other! If you would like to be apart of one of my challenge groups click the link at the top of the page, fill it out and I will get you in there meeting your goals with up! Life is to short to go at it alone!
