    Chris, I love your cardio kickboxing workouts. I would love to have a few more–45 minutes or longer. I used to hate exercise, and I look forward to this type of workout. Just a suggestion. 🙂

    I am new to the program and would like to know what would be the best routines for me to begin with. I want and have to a lot of weight, but for right now my target is 50 lbs hopefully by April 2017, so I don’t want to waste anytime doing the wrong workout routines and not seeing results.
    Here are my stats:
    Age: 44
    Current weight: 256

    Hi Chris, I Workout with you in the past and loss a lot of weight. Just would like you to know I’m back and I’m ready to get back on track. 🙂

    Chris: I have a question. Joined (wonderful annual offer! WOW!) and am doing the Firm N Burn rotation. I’m on day #2 and it calls for “Bodyweight Circuits”. I could not find it anywhere and the only workout I found that was 45 minutes was Body Weight Intervals. Is this one in the same workout? Just so I now I did the right one. Thanks in advance. Cleda

      Hi, Cleda. Congratulations on completing day 2! We are SO glad you joined GHU TV and are liking the workouts. We are also so glad you e-mailed because you caught a typo on that calendar for us! You are correct the bodyweight circuits should say bodyweight intervals and we are in the process of fixing that now. Thank you so much for reaching out to us! Keep up the great work, we have more fun workouts on the way!

    As a 63 year old every day workout person since 1974, I just love your power walk workouts plus those with light weights. As I just can’t quite do some of the same workouts I did years ago now, keep these coming. You and Jodi, and Lindsey offer wonderful workouts in this my favorite choice!

    I am interested in attending some of Chris’s classes live. Where is her studio located and do you have to have a membership or can you attend 1 or 2 classes on a trial basis?

    Yes, I agree more cardio kickboxing. I love cardio kickboxing. It was what I first started doing when I started my weight loss and is always one of my daily workouts , 10lb slimdown , when I first started i found you on exercise TV. Back in 2010 and have been doing your workouts ever since.
