The 25 Minute a Day Workout That is Changing My Life

by Charise Rohm Nulsen

I’ve seen so many headlines like the title of this blog post, and I always think that there is probably a catch or something that makes the story unbelievable, but now that I am experiencing it myself, I am so excited to share my story with others.

The 25 Minute Workout That is Changing My Life

I have never had problems with my weight, but since having my second child in May of 2012, I felt like it was much harder to get my old body back. Although most of the pounds came off, I sincerely believed that at this point in my life, I would never again have the body I used to have in my twenties. For several months, I just accepted that. I took long walks and worked out here and there, but I didn’t do anything consistently.

I felt less confident than I used to and just felt way less attractive than I ever did before. That feeling can trickle into many areas of your life, and I was not enjoying it.

On January 3rd of this year, we bought a used Livestrong Fitness Elliptical Trainer (affiliate link) on Craigslist, and that got me out of my funk a bit. I used the elliptical machine for 30 minutes 3-4 times a week while my kids napped, and after a few months, I was actually back at my pre-children weight.

That felt great, but the problem was my body still did just not look the way it used to me. I told my husband that I thought it would be impossible to ever get my old body back because as a very busy mama to two small children still in diapers, I couldn’t imagine how I would ever get out to the gym to workout hard enough and long enough to really transform my body.

Then I started noticing some posts on Facebook from an old friend of mine (David Atkins of Time for Change Fitness) talking about a 25 minute workout program that was providing people with amazing results. I talked to him more and learned about T25, a Challenge Program from Beachbody – the company that also offers workouts such as P90X, Insantiy, Turbofire, and HipHop Abs. My husband and I committed to doing the 60 day T25 challenge together.

We have now completed three weeks of the challenge, and we are blown away by the results. Here is what T25 has provided us with so far:
A challenge to take on together: At night, after the kids go to bed, rather than scrambling to start housework or sitting down to zone out in front of the TV, we take 25 minutes to spend time together – exercising, pushing each other, and ultimately having fun.

– My body is getting firm! I can see and feel my muscles. I am seeing ab muscles that I haven’t seen in years, and I am NOT doing crunches. It is so motivating! (And remember this is only from three weeks of doing T25!)

I have SO much more energy! My daughter has been getting her first molars, and still, with very little sleep, I have felt more energized than I have since having kids.

I feel better mentally. I am generally just feeling more positive and more inspired to be my best.

– I have now become a Beachbody coach so I can help others find a challenge pack that works for them.

I feel athletic and fit. I can’t believe just a short time ago, I had given up on ever looking the way I had hoped to look again! 25 minutes a day is changing my life.

If you have had feelings of doubt about your appearance, if you have tried various workout programs and have not gotten the results that you hoped for, or if you just want to kick everything in your life up to the next level, T25 is for you.
