I came across DDPYoga via a Facebook video that was making the rounds (I’ll post that at the end). It really hit a nerve with me the first time I saw it and I thought I should check out that program. I didn’t. A year or so later I saw the video again and this time I was in the right frame of mind. I needed something and this was it. I ordered the discs, I started doing the first two workouts online while I waited for the discs to arrive and I saw results almost immediately. To give you a run down of what, exactly, DDPYoga, allow me to quote from their website:
DDP YOGA combines the very best of Yoga, Traditional Fitness, Sports Therapy and Dynamic Resistance to create one of the most effective fitness plans in existence today. It allows anyone to get an amazing cardio workout while improving muscular strength, dramatically increasing flexibility and strengthening the core in a single workout… all with minimal joint impact!
The main benefits are body fat loss, lean muscle growth, and improved cardio levels all without placing undue stress on the joints. DDP YOGA is currently used by professional football players, over 40 professional wrestlers, MMA fighters, and regular everyday people who want to perform at optimum levels and want to place themselves in the best position to see career and life changing results and improve their quality of life. At the same time, morbidly obese individuals have inspired us with their own DDP YOGA success stories!
My job consists of sitting all day hunched over people. I’m a licensed esthetician and I do eyelash extensions. I’m hunched over people’s heads all day and this causes a lot of strain and tension on my neck, shoulders, and upper back. To add to that my lower back and hips have been a mess for a long time. My chiropractor had been telling me I needed to do yoga for years to help strengthen my core and back so that I wasn’t in so much pain. Plus I needed cardio to get the weight off, which would also help with the pain and messed up hips. With DDPYoga I get both without pain to my joints. I may have to modify some moves as I gain strength and flexibility (and DDP tells you to ‘make it your own’ all the time, you never feel bad for having to modify), but even at the end of the very first workout I felt so much better, more flexible, less stiff, and that night I slept better than I had in a long time. After two months I was surprised when I redid my measurements. I had lost 1/2 inch off the waist, 1/2 inch off the biceps, 1 inch off my hips, 2 3/4 inches off my thighs, 1 inch off my knees and 1 1/4 inches off my calves! The scale itself hadn’t moved much but measurements don’t lie. Things were happening and it was great!
For the first time in my life I enjoy a workout. I look forward to it. I get up early before work to get my workout in – and I am NOT a morning person. I found something that will kick my butt and make me sweat like crazy but feel great at the end. I may cuss out DDP while he’s making me hold a pose forever or do a ten count push up but by the time I’m done I am feeling amazing and looking forward to the next time.
And I’ve seen people just like me have amazing results. That was one thing that always bugged me about diet ads. They’d show people that lost 20 or 30 pounds. I wanted to see those that had lost over 100. Someone at my level having success. You see it with this. The video I posted above shows only a few of the success stories. There are more on the DDPYoga website. Plus there’s a whole support group of people just like you and me to help you through hard times, give support and encouragement, answer questions, and prove that yes this can be done. It has become like a second family and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
If you’ve tried everything else and nothing has worked, please try this. Like with anything you’ve got to be willing, you have to put in the time and the work to make it happen, but this – at least for me – made it easier to do. I don’t get a kick back from this, I make no money for telling you about it. I just believe in it and want to help people like it’s helped me. DDPYoga is helping me OWN MY LIFE and it can help you too.
