NikkiFitness Beach Bride Destination Wedding Workout
"Destination weddings create unique pressure to get in shape. There are DVDs designed to give you a beach body, and a wedding body, but nothing to get a beach wedding body! You don't have time to stand still and do bicep curls when you could be multi-tasking!" -Nikki
Nikki became a certified fitness expert to get in shape for her destination wedding, and shot this DVD in Mexico, where she was married five years ago. She is now a columnist, trainer and fitness class instructor in Manhattan.
The NikkiBeachBride Destination Wedding Workout includes:
* Combination upper and lower body moves that also work your core
* Cardio intervals that get rid of the fat over the muscles you tone
* Multi-tasking moves that cut the workout from 60 to 30 minutes
* The ability to create your own soundtrack with suggested playlists
* Screen commands that tell you what's next
* * Quick edits and transitions that keep your attention
Nikki's sister Kim, a yoga instructor, joins for an extra bonus on the DVD, a 15 minute yoga routine that stretches each muscle group, while soothing wedding stress.

Fitness DVD Created For Brides Planning Destination Weddings
NikkiFitness Beach Bride(tm) Complete Multi-tasking Fitness Routine Fits All into 30 minutes
(New York, NY)-- More than half million couples
(16% of engaged couples) plan romantic destination weddings annually and the majority of these weddings are
held in tropical locations. That leaves a lot of women wanting to get in shape. A destination wedding bride and personal trainer
finally filled this need with the new NikkiFitness Beach Bride DVD, to be released early December 2008.
"Once you are engaged and planning a destination wedding, the pressure is on - not
just to achieve beach body shape, not just wedding shape, but beach - wedding shape," explained Nicole Glor, creator
of the NikkiFitness DVD line. "It's a whole different level of fitness pressure, and it is the reason I actually became a group
fitness instructor in the first place. A beach wedding dress can't hide your flaws, and you can't just have it
taken-out or chose one with sleeves if you miss a few weeks at the gym."
With a 200% increase in the popularity of destination weddings in the last decade, and a huge
increase in media coverage of them, Mrs. Glor chose her own destination wedding in Tulum, Mexico in 2003. She had a hard time battling the daily
snowstorms in Syracuse, NY to get to the gym. She became certified in group fitness because she needed extra motivation to get to her workouts.
Five years later she is
now a certified personal trainer working in Manhattan, and taped her second multi-tasking fitness DVD at the same beach she was married
on, during her 5 year wedding anniversary. A demo can be seen at [...]
"Because I went through the destination
wedding planning, I know the pressures destination-brides-to-be are under. You have a never-ending to-do list, a scale that
won't move, a dress that doesn't fit, and minimal time for a workout. You don't have time to stand still
and do bicep curls when you could be multi-tasking."
The NikkiFitness series of multi-tasking workouts combine upper body muscle groups with lower body moves that when
performed together, put you a little off-balance and require core strength. Her class participants, personal training clients
and NikkifFitness column readers who follow these routines add cardio intervals between sets. They can do used to be an hour
workout, in half the time with more intensity and fat furning capacity during and after the session.
The other thing brides have in common? Stress. Nikki invited her sister Kim Glab, a certified
yoga instructor, to help fix that problem with a 15 minute yoga routine. "I have searched for years for a short yoga
that stretched all of my sore muscles from teaching up to 15 classes per week. None included my favorite stretches with stress-relieving
breathing and sun salutations that you could spare the time to do before work, before bed, on lunch break or after a hard
workout. My sister and I made this for ourselves and for anyone who also wants the perfect 15 minute yoga routine."
Another thing common among destination wedding brides-to-be is
anticipation. Different than traditional fitness DVD, the NikkiFitness Beach Bride workout will not show a studio full of women
doing the same old routine. It's shot in different scenic locations in Mexico with the crystal clear blue water in the background,
wind russling the palm trees and the sun shining on the sand. The location keeps you excited by looking a beach similar to
where the wedding/honeymoon might take place, and the quick edits keep participants visually stimulated.
"If you are the couple that likes to work out together
too," Nikki continues, "these moves are definitely tough enough for your fiancé. If you are a traditional
wedding bride looking forward to toning up, lowering stress and planning a great honeymoon, this is for you as well."
Also, in the spirit of YouTube and iPod and thousands of products
tailored to individual tastes, one generic soundtrack isn't forced on participants. The DVD sends exercisers to [...]
for their own playlist suggestions in many different genres. Each workout can include new music.
The DVD will be available on Amazon.com along with the NikkiFitness Military Wife Workout. For more information,
