pregnant woman sitting outsideHey Girls, this workout may be designed for moms but its is good for any girl on the go go. This is my first review, I will do more of them if you guys like what you read. Without further a do, here is my review! Even though summer is on its way out, it is not too late to keep your body looking good. If you plan on taking a cruise or going on a winter vacation you will want to start getting your body into shape now. The Bikini Body Mommy Challenge is a ninety day challenge that will tighten your abs and get you looking great again. Bikini Body Mommy is designed for women who were recently pregnant but if you still are struggling to lose that baby fat years later than this will help. The best part, it is Free! offers all its videos for free. They claim that you will see results in two weeks. The workouts are designed for most women and are not super demanding. The average workout only takes about twenty minutes to complete. After the first two weeks your body has built substantial endurance and the workouts do not do you in for the rest of the day, so to speak. However, the first week will leave you feeling tired. The upside? These tiring workouts will give you a solid nights sleep from the exhaustion.

The Finer Points

I have Spent a lot of time trying and testing different workout programs and weight loss programs with little to no success. Bikini Body Mommy is defiantly at the top of the list for me. When I saw the ads I thought, If other moms could do this why couldn’t I. I have two girls (Sarah and Moon unit) that are one and three years old. As all moms know, your body is never the same after the first baby. Bikini body mommy did not bring my body to the way it looked before, obviously. It did get me noticeably more in shape. I felt good wearing a bikini before, I do not feel any worse now. Although, I can see how it would make you look better in a bikini if you were really out of shape and had a lot of extra tummy fat.

To sum it up, I can see this program being helpful for just about anyone that wants to tone up their body. Overall, its low stress and perfect for a girl with a very active life style, and Its free! However, you do need to provide your own weights but you can get those really cheap. I got 5 pound dumbbells form Walmart way back when. You might also want a mat, you can use a yoga mat which you should already own! What do you have to lose. Although, this workout is not a lot fun(the name is super fun though, and really cute).
