That was fast......

This was only the second short Kenzai program I've done. And just like Kettlebells, this one flew by!

I loved the exercises and the alternating stength/barre routines. I also love having a rigid diet to follow on a daily basis and the connection to other trainees doing the same things as me is as always very helpful.

My results are, how should I put, a little....intangible. I did every one of the workouts and I put in a really decent effort on the diet, but I haven't noticed a huge difference in my body. Maybe a little bit firmer here and there........but nothing major. This program has made me come to the realisation, that my body is what it is---and that I will never have super defined, shapely legs. And I think I'm ok with that. That doesn't mean jumping off the wagon, eating whatever I want and never touching another piece of exercise equipment in my life. Exercise and healthy eating have always been a part of my life and each Kenzai program reinforces that. For that I am very grateful.

Unlike the tail end of KB 1, 2 and 3, when I can't wait to finish, I could definitely have gone on for another couple of weeks of Sculpt. And although, I really enjoyed the workouts, integrating them into my daily routine requires some thinking, and preparation. This happened on KBell which I loved so much......I find that I never get around to incorporating bells into my routine. So I was wondering if there were an algorithm or something that would add the barre or bell exercises in the 5 or 7-day a week workouts, once we've finished those programs?

Anyhow, that's just a quick suggestion.

It was great working out with all of you.....thanks to Kim, our trainer and all our fellow trainees. Looking forward to planning my next Kenzai adventure!

Thanks for the honest reflection. It's good to have compassion and understanding about what your body is and loving it for that. Great suggestion on having the option to sub in Sculpt and Bell workouts during life. We don't have an easy way to do that just yet but I'll push it up to HQ. Congratulations, Gisele. Sculpt COMPLETE!

    Hi Gisele, you were a great inspiration during this program! Your enthusiam and discipline are really standing out and inspired me to stick to the diet more strictly and walk up the extra set of stairs. I also struggle to integrate the bell exercises in the maintenance routine, great suggestion you made. I very much enjoyed training with you again, thank you for all your support! I hope we meet in another program sometime soon! Are you up for Kenzai ski in November :-)?

        You've got a great body, Gisele! One that is super strong and disciplined! So glad to have done another program with you. I certainly was not as diligent as you, but you kept me going and I will always think of you when I climb the stairs at work. Too bad I'm only on the 2nd floor! Congrats on a job well done!
