A Kick *%#@! Exercise Routine

Brides, if you really want to get in shape for your wedding day, I have a recommendation for you. About a year and a half ago my husband decided that he was going to take the summer off of work and spend it getting into shape. He joined a training facility in Hermosa Beach called VERT (Velocity Exercise Resistance Training). Three days a week he'd come back from VERT looking like he just tried to do a marathon in 60min. The entire summer this was all he could talk about. He'd rehash his workouts each day (to my boredom) and then ask me several times.. "can you do this?", "how many can you do of these?". At the time, I'd been running for awhile, just finished 2 triathalons (1 sprint distance and 1 olympic) and thought I was in pretty good shape. So I decided to give this VERT a try. Well, 15min into my trial session I was lying on the floor not sure if I was going to vomit or faint. 20min later I stumbled out the door and went home. My pride hurt, I refused to go back until a few months ago. I started off completing 30min sessions and worked my way up to 60min. It is by far the most challenging work-out I've ever done with the quickest results. I usually leave feeling completely energized by the fact that I was able to get through the hour. So if you live in the westside/southbay and you want to get in the best shape of your life for your wedding day may I suggest
