{Giveaway} A signed copy of Denise Austin’s “Get Energy! Empower Your Body, Love Your Life” + 3 workout DVDs

FOF television and DVD fitness star Denise Austin is giving away a signed copy of her just-released book Get Energy! Empower Your Body, Love Your Life plus 3 of her workout DVDs.

To enter, comment below and answer: Have you ever worked out to a fitness video? Which one?

Thank you for entering. This contest is now closed.

“Denise Austin practices what she preaches,” said legendary fitness enthusiast Jack LaLanne, who gave Denise her a first big break on his show. And it’s true… Denise works out just 30 minutes each day (“I really try to make the 30 minutes very effective and efficient because I don’t have a lot of time.”) and eats healthily but indulges a little too (“I eat well 80% of the time and have my treats 20% of the time”). In her just-released book Get Energy! Empower Your Body, Love Your Life, 53-year-old Denise Austin shares the food and fitness plan that’s allowed her to maintain her booming body and her booming business for the past 30 years.

The book has a quiz to help readers identify their own energy-zappers, a list of energy-boosting foods and guidelines on when to eat them, mini-workout routines and more.

“I wrote ‘Get Energy!’ because I meet with women all the time who ask me, ‘Denise, how do you have so much energy?'” says Denise. I compiled the tips and stretches that I use throughout the day to stay energized and fit!

Denise’s workout bible has already received glowing reviews: “Denise Austin makes the Energizer Bunny look lethargic,” wrote People magazine editors. “Denise Austin probably could motivate a statue,” said a review in the Chicago Tribune.

    In 1991 I was on the TOPPS(Take Off Pounds Sensibly) and wanted to do aerobics and toning exercises. Between your tapes and Richard Simmmons I lost 43 pounds in a year and 1/2. I have since decided to get off the roller coaster of gaining and loosing. I am going on a lifetime change of only organic, no preservatives and additives and no growth hormones. Everything natural and will be looking for a tape to exercise to. The main reason for this change is my health because I have so many disesases and chronic disorders that I know now are from all of the above. I will also lose weight but what I really want to do is tone up what I have. Looking forward to your daily newsletters and exercises, oh yes and the recipes. I know with the change in diet and one or two of your tapes I will conquer these ailments and I will have a lot better second half of my life.

    Yes, I have worked out to many a video. Denise Austins is just one. I have also tried Richard Simmons and Leslie Sansome. One to breth, to stretch and even do facersze. It’s the sticking with it part that’s tricky. Any suggestions? I have a new knee now so some things I am not allowed to do.

    The first time I really used a workout video and stuck to a workout plan was a little over two years ago. I saw a commercial for the Get Fit Daily Dozen and thought I would give it a try. A daily workout of 12 minutes seemed easy enough. So I bought the DVD and easy it was not. I was sweating like crazy. I was able to lose weight and trim inches off my body. I have since puchased and utilized four more Denise Austin DVDs. I truly love you, Denise. You are such an inspiration and a part of my everyday life. Thank you!

Now that I am in a new place and have struggled to settle in I have let exercise go by the wayside until the past few weeks. Today a friend and I broke out the Video tape and worked up a great sweat. Looking forward to loosing a few pounds and shaping up before my surgery in a couple of weeks. I’m so excited you have new products out, I would love to have them in my home.

    LOL! Have I worked out to “A” fitness video? I just went to my shelves & counted: I have 12 Denise Austin videos that I switched through using daily for years, as well as Zumba from 2002 (before the current craze where people seem to have just discovered it!), Tae Bo, WW fitness, & of course The BellyTwins. Sadly, all but a few of the Belly Twins’ are VHS, from nearly 10 years ago, in my 40s, before I grew so tired I couldn’t exercise anymore. When doc finally checked my thyroid as I’d asked for 3 years & diagnosed me Hypothyroid, it took a couple years to figure out that Synthroid wasn’t helping. I still haven’t found doctor to take me seriously & look for real cause of constant fatigue & no energy to exercise (all think I’m just middle-aged woman who eats too much & won’t exercise & won’t admit it); in last 3 years have managed to make it to Ballroom Dance lessons w/husband, but still not up to fitness videos. Follow Denise Austin, still, though; I find her a true inspiration, & will definitely be checking into the new book!

    I have been using workout DVDs (at first I used Tapes) for many years. That is how I keep in shape and workout when I am not teaching cardio,step,weight training and yoga. At 58 years old,I can say I am in better shape than the college students I teach. To work out at home is convenient,easy and there is no need to get all dressed up to workout,you are in the privacy of your own home. I have to honestly say my favorite DVDs I use at least once a week are Denise Austin’s Boot Camp and Fat Burning Dance Mix. I love her yoga DVDs as well. They are the best !!!

I love Gilad’s Total Body Workout, plus enjoy any Yoga program as well. For videos, I’ve worked out to Gunther’s Total Body workout, Kardashian’s Fit in Your Jeans, and Abs Diet Workout DVD.
    Though I go to a gym, sometimes working out at home is more effective and convenient- especially with the assistance of a great workout program or video. It’s the benefit of having a Trainer in your living room.

    Hello. Yes, I worked out with you daily when you were on TV. I like that format because it is fresh and you didn’t do the same thing every day. I liked the places you went, too like Sedona and Turks and Caicos. Beautiful. Now, I mostly work out with Exercise TV or Demand Fitness online. It’s not as much fun. I used to tell people, “Denise is my friend. She believes in me!” I liked your tips, too about eating and nutrition.

    In the 80s I went through a phase of just workout videos on days when I didn’t use the Soloflex. The two I used to workout to the most were Greg Smithey’s Buns of Steel and Tamilee Webb”s Thighs of Steel. I used some other Tamilee videos but cannot remember the names. Callanetics with Callan Pinckney was challenging for me. I used other videos I don’t remember as well that did all over workouts in 30-45 minutes. I also continued into the 90s with Tae Bo and some yoga videos. Now I occassionally do a pilates video or a yoga video. My hectic schedule only leaves time for the stationary bike or exercising with hand weights these days. I would love to read the book written by a woman my exact age and would definitely make time for the videos since she just works out 30 minutes a day.
