    Why did you choose this workout/event?
    What specific muscles/areas of the body did this class focus on?
    What are things you liked about it? What are things you did not like?
    If you were to continue this class/event what are goals you hope this class would help you to achieve?
    Would you recommend this workout to anyone?
    Was the workout aerobic? Was it anaerobic? Was it a mixture?

    Hope this helps- please let me know if you have any questions.

    Today I chose a new workout called "Less is More." I found this workout at http://efitness365.com/freeworkouts.html. I chose it because I like the idea of a simple workout that I can do at home and in a short amount of time. Also, after looking through many workouts, I liked that I could accomplish a total body workout, with an emphasis on core conditioning.
    The specific muscles/areas of the body that the workout focused on were quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, erector spinae, gastrocnemius, soleus, rectus abdominus (squats), ...
