Fitness DVDs are Shipping. Yay!

Holy Moly, that’s a lot of boxes!

The DVDs are here! I’m so excited, I’m so thrilled, I’m so … geeked out!!!  The UPS guy plopped down 11 boxes in my foyer, hit the buzzer, and then took off running so he didn’t have to carry them up the stairs. I took my time chugging up and down with each box, figuring it was fitting to have my own little HIIT workout using the HIIT DVDs. Then I tore open a box and was a bit flummoxed.

It’s a very weird, kind of out-of-body experience to stare down at a bunch of skinny boxes with a picture of yourself staring back at you. Especially since I’d been with clients all day and definitely didn’t feel as gorgeous as I looked on those covers! (Thank you again to my team for making me look so damned amazing!)

We’re shipping our first batch out today and filling the pre-orders at my Pilates studio. It’s going to be quite a trip to the post office and I will be geeking out the whole way. I’m so proud of myself for doing this, for overcoming my doubts … for working hard, and for getting this far. It’s kinda amazing what a little gumption will do.

Marketing Fitness DVDs

We’re now moving into phase two of making a fitness DVD which is letting the world know that I put together some pretty awesome workouts and everyone should try them. I’m reaching out to social media friends this week and asking for a review. It feels a little bit like asking someone to buy a box of Girl Scout cookies for your kid … “You know I’ve never asked before, but would you mind reviewing my fitness DVDs?”  I’ve typed that more than a few times this week.

I look forward to getting people’s feedback. To me it’s the biggest test. I respect the heck out of people like Leah Segedie from Mamavation, Danny Johnson from Sweaty Betties, Joyce Cherrier from Freaking Fitness, and Heather Frey of SmashFit (to name just a few). We’ve become friends and peers over the years and their opinions truly matter to me. I’m hoping not only for an honest review, but also to hear them tell me how I could improve on the next one. These two fitness DVDs are my first after all, but I’m hoping they won’t be my last.

I know New Year’s resolutions seem a bit far off, but by ordering a DVD today, you’ll get a jump start on 2013!  Just click over to, our sister site, and you’ll be all set.

    Tracey & Diana thanks so much! Today my big goof was buying the wrong sized mailers for the DVD … back to the store … but then the big ones I ordered came so it worked out just fine. L–
