Faith and Workouts

I thought I'd seen just about every gimmick there is regarding workouts.  The latest one being that weird shake weight thingy that just looks wrong.

Don't you agree?  If you haven't seen this commercial, you need to check it out.  I love SNL.

But then I was up at 4am and saw an infomercial for something I haven't been able to stop thinking about.  Body Gospel.

Body Gospel is a faith-based workout.  This I have never seen before and was very curious (isn't there a market for everything).  Let me share with you some of the details and you can provide me with your own thoughts on this one... because honestly, I am not sure what to think.

" Body Gospel®: Have faith in your weight loss last, you can combine the power of your faith with your desire to lose weight and get fit. Body Gospel is a first-of-its-kind program that includes workouts set to inspirational gospel music, breakthrough new resistance bands, and a complete nutrition plan created by fitness icon Donna Richardson Joyner. She shows you how to combine this effective program with your faith in God to transform your body and your life. With glorious music guaranteed to get you moving, every workout is a “party with a purpose,” and the results will amaze you. If you believe, you will succeed!"

Ironically, the company that is selling this DVD workout is BeachBody which is know for programs such as Brazil Butt Lift, Hip Hop Abs, Power90 and Turbofire. 

I really have no idea what to think at this point.

Ha, I've seen this infomercial:

My main problem with it is that 95% of all inspirational music is absolutely wretched. Simply horrible.

Beachbody's workouts seem to get results. I started the Insanity one, so far, so good... but the faith workout... eh...
