During Week 4 of the Total Gym Challenge, I was fighting off feelings of discouragement with my lack of weight loss. Last week, those feelings really took hold of me again when I stepped on the scale to see very little change.
But physically, I feel stronger. My lower body workouts are a breeze and my upper body workouts are becoming less of a struggle. I’ve seen the changes of strength in not only my workouts but in the things I do every single day. For example, the Total Gym XLS is designed to fit in your home without taking up excess space. When not in use, it folds flat similar to an ironing board so you can store it under your bed or in a closet like I do. During week one, this folding process was a real struggle for me, to the point I needed assistance from my husband for fear I would crush one of my toes. Now, it takes me half the time to fold and unfold the equipment and I’m confident in my ability to do it without breaking anything.
