CSN Stores Review and Giveaway

The lucky winner is #12 Bari.
Please email me your mailing info and I'll get it off to Jessica.
I was contacted by my friend Jessica at CSN Stores and offered a review and giveaway. I could pick whatever I wanted. I knew from the start that I wanted to do something fitness related. What I didn't realize was how hard it would be to pick something. You can't imagine how many things they had to choose from. It is an amazing place to shop.

After many days of searching, I decided on two workout dvd's from The Firm. The Firm is a name that I have heard of for years, but never tried before. I had no idea what I had been missing. If you want a great workout, you want to try these.

First, I tried the body sculpting ball workout. I was sweaty and breathing heavy before I ever picked up the ball. Imagine my surprise when I finally was told to pick the ball up. It was one tough workout, but boy was it a good workout. I truly felt like I had used every muscle group in my body. I couldn't believe that using that little weighted ball could make such a diffence in the workout. I am definitely going to put this dvd in my workout rotation.

Next, I tried the 5 pound kettlebell kit. Once again, I was impressed with the workout. You have this 5 pound bell with a handle on it. You are doing all kinds of moves with this bell and you have to control it the whole time. It is little to look at, but it is mighty to control. Once again, sweaty and heavy breathing were words that came to mind early on in the workout. This dvd gave me a great workout. I'll be using this again and again.

Now, here's the good news for you. Jessica is going to give one lucky reader their own set of these dvd kits. I promise you'll love them if you win.

All you have to do is leave me a comment about your favorite form of exercise. Don't just tell me what it is, tell me why it is your favorite. Simple, right?

I will pick a winner using on Wednesday, September 8th. That is my wedding anniversary. Maybe that will be good luck for someone. I will post the winner on Thursday, September 9th.

Good luck everyone!


  1. My favorite form of exercise is walking, because I love being outside. I can walk wherever I home, on vacation,etc. Thanks for hosting a great giveaway. Love & blessings from NC!

  2. My favorite is Ballet.
    I love the grace and the flow of the different steps and poses of this artform and exercise. I have been practicing ballet for many years now and love the strength it gives to me in my everyday life.

  3. My favorite form of exercise is walking because it can be as casual or as aerobic as I need it to be.
    I am, however, increasingly appreciating the merits of a workout like the Shred and potentially The Firm workouts. That is if I'm lucky enough to win one. Otherwise, I just might buy one. lol

  4. Ohhh....I have the firm step box from years ago and would love love love to try a kettlebell! I love running but I need to have some more cross training in to tone up my jiggly bits!

  5. I love the FIRM... especially since I want nothing more than to be FIRM myself!!! I enjoy pilates, yoga and jazzercise! Happy Anniversary Nancy!

  6. My fav form of excersing is Biking. My friend and I bike 2 to 3 times a week. It is relaxing, just me and my IPOD to enjoy the day and get a great workout at the same time. I do not have any worries when I am biking. Love it!

  7. My fave form of exercise is running on my new treadmill... I like running because it STILL kicks my butt... and i always break a sweat...



  8. My favorite exercise is bike riding. Why?

    fresh air
    always a new view
    can make it easy or hard depending on the day
    can ride alone or with others
    love to be out in God's world as I pray

    I've seen The Firm before and thought they looked like something I would like. I would LOVE to win. Pick me, pick me (jumping up and down and waving my hands).


  9. My favorite form of exercise is running, and that is because I have always loved it. I was in track and x-country in high school and I have always loved to be able to go out on the road or in the dunes or on some trail for a run. Now, I just need to get in good enough shape to do it again!!!

  10. My favorite exercise is running, but I had an auto accident, so now it is walking only.

  11. My fave form of exercise is yoga -- i like that it's a slow, smooth motions with attention to your body and mind

  12. I have a love/hate relationship with running-but the pendulum is definitely swinging more towards the love side :) You need basically no equipment other than a really good pair of shoes and an awesome sports bra. Running outside gets me some fresh air and helps clear my head of the stress of everyday life.

    I'm interested in these workout DVD's though, because strength and cross training are so important to staying healthy and becoming a stronger, faster runner.

  13. My favorite right now is cycling. I'm not sure why I love it so much but it's intense, gives me a great workout and I big puffy heart it! :)

  14. My favorite form of exercise is dancing. Give me some tunes and I'll shake my money maker all day long! LOL. I took a belly dancing class taught by a co-worker and realized a few months ago how much I love to dance. I'm getting ready to sign up for another one of her classes and I can't wait.

  15. My favorite form of exercise is walking because it's easy, it gets my heart rate up and it eazes me into other forms of exercise.

  16. Oh, congrats on the anniversary!!

  17. Cool! Thank you Nancy :) I'll shoot you my info.


I love comments. It makes me feel like I know you better. Even if you just say hi, please leave me one!
