Giga-What? {GIVEAWAY}

Do you like at home work out videos? No? either.

That doesn't mean I don't have piles of videos that I have watched once, hated, and never looked at again. I have a short attention span...and doing the same workout day after day is BO-RING!

The only video I have stuck with for any amount of time was Jillian Michael's 30-day shred...and that's because I was scared of disappointing her ;) However, even with that fear I have never made it anywhere near the 30 days...because, like I said....boring!

I've always wanted to find a video that I liked (and could stick with) because let's face it...they are so darn convenient. I have a hard time working out solo (and figuring out what weights to pick up and put back down at the gym) and I like to workout on my time, and the class schedules at a gym NEVER fit with my schedule. 

About 2 months back as a SweatPink Ambassador I was offered a chance to try out Gigabody online workout videos. To say I was skeptical was an understatement...but like I said I have been searching far and wide for at home videos that I enjoyed and would stick with so I figured I could give this a try...and who doesn't like a review from a skeptic ;)

What I immediately liked about Gigabody was that it was online and wouldn't require me to store or haul around a workout "video" and that I could access it anywhere. Sometimes I like to work out in my classroom after school (after all the kids have left of course, lol!), at my house, or in the gym at my apartment complex. Gigabody gave me the ability to use my iPad, computer at school, or Apple TV at home to get in a quick "at home" workout. 

The other thing that I liked about Gigabody, is the variety of videos that it offers. There are 88 + workouts to choose from. You can do yoga, cardio, upper body, lower body, HIIT, etc. Basically, it's almost impossible to get bored with these workouts because there are so many to choose from!

I've been using Gigabody for the last 2 first just for low impact and yoga workouts while recovering from my marathon and now I am using it more for weight training for my half-marathon training....and I have to say I haven't gotten bored yet...and I don't think I will. 

While, I haven't done the same video twice I have found a collection that I's quick 20 minute workouts that targets different parts of your body. "Take 20" with Aimee Nicotera is definitely a favorite of mine...and what I like best is that I don't have to buy each of her workout videos individually, they are all available on for me to pick and choose from depending on my mood that day :)

Gigabody gave me 2 free months in return for writing this review...and I have to say that when my 2 months is up I will most likely keep my membership. It's only $8.99 a month with unlimited access to ALL of their videos and training plans. The other part that I like is that you can cancel at any contract and no "30-60" notice before they stop billing you.

Now for the best part...Gigabody has given me a free month to giveaway! I'm trying something new this time around and I am doing my giveaway via Instagram. I've never done an Instagram fingers crossed it works and doesn't turn out to be a complete failure :)

 Giveaway starts NOW and the winner will be announced via Instagram Monday December 22nd...Good luck!



  1. This looks great! I hate doing the same workout over and over too. But I need some indoor cross training for winter nap time :)

  2. That looks really cool!!!! My problem is - if I do it online, My laptop usually bounces all around on the floor when I'm doing it. HAHAHA - I should probably just plug it in to one of our tvs. #struggleisreal
