What Do We Learn This Month in Oxygen?

“A Petite Powerhouse”

Our cover star is Kathleen Tesori who is not only sponsored by but is also Manger of Supply Chain management with the U. S. Airforce—wow! The 5’ 2” Tesori resides in Salt Lake City and considers working for her country to be a privilege.

Even though she has busy days with the Department of Defense she always makes the point to work out even if for only 20 minutes. The former junk food junkie used to live on corndogs and Mountain Dew (ah—college!) She now eats a very clean diet and totes around her meals in a cooler to and from work.

Kathleen is featured in the “20-Minute Fat-Burning Workout” inside the issue as well.

“Your Ultimate Upper Body”

By doing two opposing exercises at the same time you can see powerful effects (such as combining lunges with bicep curls.) Check out some of these moves from trainer Cindy Whitmarsh that will help increase your metabolic burn.

“Portable Pilates”

Oxygen has expert Pilates trainer Juliet Kaska of JK Zen Fitness show how we can all do this workout from home. (Note to self—get this equipment, stat!)

“Fine-Tune Your Butt”

With a headline like that—guess what muscles you will be working with this feature? These exercises were developed by Simone De La Rue whom I completely adore. (Hi Simone!)

“Pink Power!”

I am not much of a runner (if you ever see me running—ask what the hell is wrong!) Nor am I much of a “pink” girl but this page of pink running gear gives me the happies. (Maybe because Spring has sprung!)

And now the rest of this issue of Oxygen:

  • “Strong Body, Strong Mind” Exercising your body can also help your mind from “warding off dementia to relieving anxiety and depression.”
  • “Eat Smarter to Feel Great” If you have problems with inflammation (over here!) changing your diet can help “minimize it’s effects.”

Overall Grade:

A- Lots of good workouts here but some of the other features were less than interesting to me.

Get Fit in Six Weeks, Stay Fit for Life with Cindy Whitmarsh’s New U.F.I.T. Weight Loss Program!

SAN DIEGO, CA –Fitness and sports nutrition expert Cindy Whitmarsh has trained everyone from professional athletes to new moms. Her new U.F.I.T. weight loss program asks women to give her six weeks, one minute at a time, for results that will last a lifetime. The three Ultra Focused Interval Training DVDs each include two 20-minute workouts. Each workout is made up of one, two or three minute intervals, alternating cardio and toning. The moves are athletic and uncomplicated. What is U.F.I.T. Training? It’s an intense interval training method consisting of targeted intervals to turn any body into a calorie-burning machine while building a sleek, toned physique! Since no workouts can beat what one eats, the complete downloadable U.F.IT. package ($39.95) also includes a meal plan and a workout calendar. Each DVD is available on line and sells for $14.95 ($39.95 set) Everything (including meal plan $19.95 and workout calendar $9.95) is available individually or as complete set.

The three DVDs are:

U.F.I.T. Ultra Burn – Calorie Crushing Cardio and Sculpt & Stretch

U.F.I.T.  Ultra Lean – Upper Body Bliss and Lower Body Blast

U.F.I.T Ultra Tight – Hard Body and 6 Pack Abs

Hand weights are used. Modifications are offered for beginners. One can expect sweat will pour but that’s what it takes to make lasting, noticeable changes.

The workout calendar included in the complete set makes it easy to know which workout to do each day. For the first two weeks, one only has to commit to twenty minutes for six consecutive days.

The meal plan includes a first week jump start, grocery list, advice on supplements, eating on the go and more. Week one switches the body into an accelerated change mode. From there it moves into a plan designed to help anyone stay on track to be fit, maintain lean muscle and live healthier. Three meals and two snacks daily provide approximately 1250 calories each day for woman and 1750 for men. Each meal aims for a ratio of 30% protein, 50% carbohydrates and 20% fat.
