The ever popular McDonalds fast food restaurant is now joining up with Yourself Fitness in what appears to be a paradox effort. While most remember fast food restaurants as greasy, unhealthy places where people who donâ€™t worry about their weight eat, that is quickly changing as fast-food restaurants pick up on the market of weight loss.
You can now join your own personal trainer Maya on DVD simply by buying the McDonalds Adult Kids meal, once again, another paradox. These 15-minute DVDâ€™s include â€œYoga,â€ â€œCardio,â€ â€œCore,â€ and â€œStrength.â€ These DVDâ€™s are also available in game format for Playstation 2, PC, and Xbox.
Digital-Lifestyles.info noted â€œ”unlike a Body Combat session at the local gym, no two workouts will be the same. Each day Maya builds an individual routine based on the users progress and commitment levelâ€¦ Avoiding the smell of sweat and visions of sticks on treadmills users are able to workout on an island or in an Alpine Retreat.â€
Raving reviews like this one have emerged from the The Sun to the Chicago Sun-Times to the Time Magazine to Wired Online.
1. She assesses your current level of fitness
2. She identifies areas where you need work and helps you set realistic fitness goals..
3. Then Maya builds a work out program customized just for you.. and leads you through your program on a schedule and at a pace that is right for you.
4. Over time, Maya will adapt your program to your increasing fitness level
The program also boasts these other features:
â€¢ over 500 exercises
â€¢ a complete fitness analysis
â€¢ personalized goal setting
â€¢ customized meal planner with over 4500 recipes
â€¢ a fitness commitment calendar
â€¢ six workout environments
â€¢ multiple music options
â€¢ over 200 health and fitness tips from Prevention Magazine
â€¢ a responsive trainer who adapts to how you feel on any given day and provides encouragement on those days where you are feeling unmotivated.
But the question remains for those of us who are looking at where this is coming from: McDonalds, the king of junk food. The paradox is really quite funny. But perhaps this is a good thing. Perhaps people are buying more salads, which I wouldnâ€™t ever try at McDonalds (who knows where theyâ€™ve been.) Maybe people are truly starting a war on obesity, which is wonderful. Perhaps the death of life hasnâ€™t come yet.
But I doubt Maya at Mickey Dâ€™s is going to do much. But it was a nice thought.
