REVIEW: X-TrainFit XTFMAX Circuit Burnout




X-TrainFit XTFMAX Circuit Burnout
Stephanie Oram, 2014

Stephanie leads this 39 min high intensity cardio & toning interval workout with 3 backgrounders, all showing various modifications. You will need dumbbells or exercise tubing for this workout.

Stephanie does this pyramid style going from 10 counts each to 8 each. After a warm up, exercises include lunge jumps, tuck moguls, star jacks, single leg jump rope, Mt climber frog hops, plie calf raises, long jump up & hop back, jack - scissors, side lying tri pushups, lunge kicks, elevator planks, and a cool down.

I rate this a high intermediate routine following Stephanie but there are modifiers from beginner to advanced so make the workout your own. This is mostly cardio with some light toning breaks. I love the athletic nature and modifier options. I received this DVD to review.

Sambazon: Organic Superfood Juices ~ Amazingly Nutritious!



When presented with the opportunity to review a Sambazon - the first thing that caught my eye was organic, next superfood, then all the amazing flavor combos. After my first sip I was in love! So delicious and super unique- unlike any other juice product I have tried. Every sip screams healthy goodness. Not a thin or sugary juice, and not a thick smoothie, Sambazon is the perfect balance of fruits, vegetables, superfoods, and some contain quinoa, soy, chia and more. Keep reading to learn more about this amazing product & amazing company!

I had the pleasure of trying quite a few of the fabulous Sambazon products and I am not quite sure which one is my favorite. The first one I tried was the Blended Breakfast. I loved it. Not too thick, but enough to be filling. I found this to be the perfect midmorning snack or a light breakfast for those days on the run. This blend contains chia, ancient grains, strawberry, banana and more. So good and so good for me.

The next variety that I got to try was the Protein: Chocolate + Almond + Coconu Milk. SO good and so convenient. Toss one in your gym bag, have for a late afternoon snack or perfect for a pre or post workout pick me up. Filled with good for you protein and healthy omegas that are heart healthy. The 8 grams of protein will keep you full and the entire bottle only contains 200 calories. This is the perfect quick breakfast. Rich & creamy without being chalky  - you can really tell that it contains fresh, real ingredients.

Loving the flavor & health benefits so much I knew I had to learn more about this fantastic beverage. When browsing their website I loved what I read about theSambazon company: They started Sambazon based on a philosophy called the Triple Bottom Line, which not only measures success economically, but also socially and environmentally. When a Triple Bottom Line business makes a profit, it’s a positive experience for everything and everyone involved, from the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest which provides 
amazing superfoods and botanicals, to the farmers who work the land and earn a healthy living, to their employees who translate this Amazon magic into next level products; and finally, to their customers who ultimately use these delicious powers to help further their own health and wellness missions.  They folks at Sambzaon feel that this is an awesome model of how businesses should operate and that with enough of them out there, then capitalism, in fact, can be a positive force for change and a major contributor to a sustainable future.

I loved every variety I had the pleasure of trying and highly recommend you give Sambazon a whirl. Other yummy varieties I think you will love are: Super Greens, Acai, and Energy Varieties, something for every taste - all healthy & all filled with organic, Non GMO, high quality superfoods. I found them at my local Sprouts stores and at Whole Foods. Find a store near you with the Sambazon store locator.
