I have never been an "exercise person". I've never liked the gym and never been able to stick to a routine of running or of working out from home. But now that I'm doing Body Sculpt, for the first time in my life I actually enjoy working out. I feel really good (physically and mentally), can see and feel changes in my body, and am disappointed when I have to miss a day. The workout changes every class, so you never get bored from repetition. The workouts are fun and get your heart rate up, but also focus on martial arts technique - boxing on heavy bags, kick boxing, stick fighting, etc. (which is so much more worthwhile than developing your step aerobics technique). The attitude of both the instructors and the participants is down-to-earth (in contrast to many gyms). And while the atmosphere is non-competitive, everyone pushes themselves, which is really motivating. The workouts also support a variety of fitness levels - there are people in the class who are getting into shape for the first time in their lives and people who are really strong and already in great shape. Although more expensive than a gym membership, what you get out of the class far outweighs the cost (plus, unlike a gym, you'll probably actually go). I can't recommend Body Sculpt strongly enough.
