Hi Barbara! I was looking at some of your programs and they look great! I belong to a gym and recently talked with a trainer who told me to do weights 3x a week and cardio 2x-3x a week. I can only get to the gym 3-4 days a week so I was wondering which of your workouts would be best for me. I am weigh about 122 and I really need to lose fat and tone.

Which of your programs would you recommend? I was interested in the Whole Body Conditioning but 5 days is difficult and I would really like to see some results quickly.

Thanks for your advice!!

Hi Tracy

I only have the one program up online, at present, that's the Women's Whole Body Conditioning Workout.

3-4 days a week is fine, select a workout that will fit the amount of days you wish to workout on; there are many great routines on the site that will fit your needs. Take a browse through the women's workouts available on M&S by various other authors.

You could also do cardio out of the gym and just use your days in the gym for the weights portion of a routine, that is if time permits outside of the gym and you want to do running or some other form of cardio which will lend itself well to no gym at all. That will also depend on whether you want to do more than the 3-4 days that you're able to attend a gym as well but the extra 2-3 days aren't a necessity.

Hope that helps a bit.

Hi Barbara,
I am currently on week two following your total body conditioning program. I am loving it so far and seeing some
muscle tone and firmness, which ive never had before. Anyhow, I'm very petite and really dont need to burn fat and I just want to tone up and not bulk... would you say this is the right program for me?

Hi Samantha

You won't really bulk up much at all, many people thought I was losing weight even when the weight was rising but I was losing bodyfat which gave the impression of getting smaller whilst adding lean mass.

Cardio is also important for heart health, just reduce it to 10-15 mins a session, that should be plenty if you don't want it for extra weight loss.

Great to hear that you're getting the results that you've been looking for and enjoying the routine.

Hi Barbara!

I've just started the whole body conditioning workout and I love it!!
But I have one question - could I add to this workout the butt build exercises (found here on the website)? I would like to have a perfectly shaped butt:)
I've been thinking to do these exercies during cardio days. What do You think about it?
Thanks for Your advice
