Ab Workout: Balance Ball Crunch

Ready to work those abs? In this Fit Life, I’m going to show you how to do a stability ball crunch. You might be tired of your old ab workout, or maybe just need something new and different to add to your routine.  Take notice that this exercise is suppose to really work the abs, not the hip flexors.  If your lower body is moving throughout, then you need to re-evaluate your positioning.  If you are wanting to work your hip flexors, then this video will not help you!

Wii Fit Game Review – Jillian Michaels vs. AmyMac

In this Fit Life, we review the Wii Fit compatible game Jillian Michaels’ Fitness Ultimatum 2009.  I really wanted to see what this game would do for me as far as having fun and being challenged.

We are all looking for great ways to work out cheaper or at home or even in a hurry.  I was ready for Jillian Michaels, best known for her role as hardcore personal trainer on The Biggest Loser, to push me to my limit!
