I am honestly super surprised to even be giving you this Melissa Wood health review one year later! Prior to her workouts, I could never stick to a program for longer than a few weeks. I used to find working out a chore and really not something I wanted to spend a lot of time on.
Working out means different things to different people and for me, I want something quick and effective. I don’t want to be at the gym for hours but I want to be left feeling like I moved my body and am a little sore. My other goal with working out is increasing my flexibility since I’m a dance teacher and need to maintain that.
What I Love:
I think the really pull I have to Melissa Wood Health is her vibe. It sounds crazy but she is seriously so calming. I feel like with each workout, I’m not just getting a workout but also like a mini meditation session in. It makes me want to keep coming back for the feeling of peace each time.
Another thing I love about these workouts is I can do them anywhere. On vacation, I actually took my mat with me a and did her workouts. This is something I literally would never do but again, my body craves the post flow feeling. Her workouts range from weights, balls, and bands to literally just your own body weight. This makes her workouts easy to do anytime and anywhere.
In addition to the low maintenance of these workouts, I like that her message is never to do a super hard workout on your body. If you are just moving a little each day, that is more than enough. Putting this thought in my head has built up a consistency that I have never had before.
The Melissa Wood Health workouts start at like 5 minutes and go up to 50. If I am feeling a longer one, I’ll choose that but most of the time I am around 20 minutes. Because of this, I am able to put a workout in everyday and build that good habit in myself.
I thought about including a “what I don’t love” section but honestly, I don’t have anything. These pilates and yoga flows fit my lifestyle and are so easy to incorporate in my day. Finding Melissa Wood Health workouts during the pandemic seriously changed my view of working out.
I always thought that I needed a hard, intense cardio filled workout but I find that these slow workouts are just as effective and so much better on my body. I am obsessed with MWH and think everyone should at least give it a try. You really have nothing to lose when you’re moving your body in a gentle but crazy effective way!
