i get annoyed easily by fitness instructors. whether they are too chipper, cheesy, loud, hyper, deer-caught-in-head-lights-eyed or whatnot they get booted out of the workout room immediately. i thought i'd share my two fav instructors as i don't see 'em much on these boards. i inivite you to make suggestions based on a non-annoying factor as i am looking for new vids.
my two favs:
lighter side i.e. yoga and the like
Suzanne Deason - i love this woman. i have several of her balance ball, yoga, and pilates videos. she doesn't even talk while doing it, it's a voice over. and most of her videos consist of different levels. she's relaxing and at the same time pushes you to the extreme by instructing you on exactly how to isolate your core muscles and breathe. two thumbs up. Yoga Conditioning for Weight Loss is good as well as Pilates Conditioning for Weight Loss.
crap that is hard to do and therefore = lots of sweat
Tanja Djelevic - i have her Cardio workout and have been doing it for awhile and it still kicks me in the arse. the only thing annoying about her is the ease that she does everything. she's upbeat without being overly hyper. and she doesn't seem like an android like some of these folks. her voice is pleasant as well.
Suzanne Deason has tons of videos so i am set when it comes to pilates and yoga. any suggestions on intense workouts from non-annoying instructors? i do watp as well as leslie is only mildly annoying imho, but have yet to find anyone else when it comes to high impact.
