    alijsyed asked the Question: When will DailyBurn post more podcasts?

    I use podcasts to listen to during runs set the gym. I have gone through all the DailyBurn podcasts and want more! Any plans for more?

    I absolutely have been doing nothing but raving about and all of the amazing things that have happened for me. Before DailyBurn, I was on muscle relaxers and painkillers from a local doctor plus a back brace. One day during work, the back pain was just too much for me and I called it a day by noon. Barely able to move, I left my car at work and took a taxi to another doctor in town. He recommended that I look at the cause instead of a solution for my trouble. This is not something I wanted to hear but I did so because he knew best. He told me to start eating clean (he handed me a book to keep on the subject), he told me to look into Yoga (which I would have otherwise dismissed) and told me to work on losing weight. At the time I was at 230lbs standing at 5'7".

    I found DailyBurn on the net as I looked into Yoga programs on the net. I started thinking about DailyBurn over the restless night of pain. I signed up the next day. I started with the first Yoga session set for me. I could barely do too much but it felt great. I also started eating clean that day as well. After 3 days, I felt so great that I didn't realize I forgot to take my pain meds (my wife used to put it out on the washroom counter for me at night). I was amazed this was the result of Yoga from DailyBurn. By day 5, I abandoned the brace completely (I was still wearing it at work on day 3 and 4).

    Today (about 4 weeks into using DailyBurn) I am proud to clearly give DailyBurn the following credit:
    1) I'm off my meds and off my brace. My "new" doctor was very happy to see I followed his advice.
    2) I regularly do the Yoga sessions but now have added in True Beginner (after week 2 I things).
    3) I went from a size 38" waist to 34". I'm goal setting for 32".
    4) By week 2 I started going to the gym with my wife for a walk on the treadmill. She was amazed I wasn't winded after 15 minutes like she feared. I used to lose my breath walking upstairs at night to say goodnight to my kids. I also started True Beginner sessions out of curiosity and really like the sessions.
    5) By week 4 I could walk\jog for 30 minutes on the machine. I'm hoping to start running by Summer.
    6) People at work say my face and body are changing for the good and I notice after a 9 to 10 hour day at work (I'm a Director of Technology), I'm not tired and ready for a nap.

    I have even started to do some of Cody's sessions on DailyBurn and have tried out Metabolic Maximizer. My goal is to finish the 14 sets by end of June. I'm currently able to finish 7 sets. I also tried out the Bollywood Move session. I have been eyeing my bike for the first time since I bought it. We live in Northern Canada and have some great outdoors waiting to be explored. I haven't been able to take advantage of it because of my weight and lack of self esteem.

    I credit DailyBurn for helping to relieve my back pain, increase my stamina and endurance, and rebuild my self esteem. I'm not afraid of the mirror anymore. I am so happy that I found this website and decided to sign up. I have been telling everyone who listens about the website and the amazing results I have experienced. I can't say enough about the new lease on life you gave me.

    I am now more confident in determining my goals:
    1) To get to my weight in university of 160 lbs.
    2) To be able to run a half marathon before the end of 2014.
    3) To fit into a pair of 32" jeans (something I could do in 1997.

    I hope this helps in understanding my journey so far. I know there is still much to accomplish but I am more than excited about the future. I would be more than willing to help you spread the word about I would also like to come to DailyBurn when I get a chance and thank you all personally. I think the company is awesome and I'm more than willing to fly to you on my own dime to let you all know this.

    Thanks for giving my wife her husband back and my kids their dad back. I'm so excited about life now!

    I'm not if you can do this. Right now I use Yoga on the program and True Beginner in explore mode. It's harder because I have to keep track of the TB workouts myself. That's what I do but I don't know the "official" solution.

    I started at 230 lbs at 5'7". I have been on DailyBurn for 20 days and am at 196 lbs on the Yoga program plus True Beginner. I started to go to the gym to get back into running on the weekends. I really look forward to the workouts and firmly believe this is a lifestyle change and not a fad or gimmick for me. I stopped using pain medication for my back in 3 days of the Yoga program and have stopped using my back brace after 7 days of the Yoga.

    That would be a great feature. But I also would like to be able to add to it since I have taken up jogging at the gym on certain days.

    alijsyed answered the Question: What do you do when you can't work out one day?

    I travel a lot in a year (roughly 30 times away from home). I have been bringing my laptop and yoga mat with me for such occasions. I find the Yoga sessions are not an issue in the hotel room.

    It also keeps from losing momentum.

    alijsyed asked the Question: Anyone using PGX Daily?

    I've started using PGX Daily at the same time I started as a DailyBurn user. Just wanted to know if others use it or something similar.

    alijsyed answered the Question: Loving DailyBurn? We need testimonials!

    After a week of starting with DailyBurn (started with the Yoga program), I'm off my back pain medication and put aside my back brace. I went from barely able to walk to do almost a full recovery. I feel great about myself and can actually tell you I notice an energy difference. I can't wait for a few months of this daily routine I've started to be ready for enjoying the Summer.
