    I wish Keith were here to make my workouts for me every day. I need some inspiration lately. I’m bored…

    How long did this take you??

    • April 14, 2011 3:11 pm

      I did a 10 minute warm up on the bike and then the workout took me about 50 minutes.

      • April 14, 2011 3:12 pm

        But we were moving! 🙂

        My husband did it with all his clients too and they (aside from hating me) did it in about an hour. But they didn’t do the bike warm up…they started on the stairs.
