The S Factor

Thursday, May 29, 2008

You are probably asking yourself right now, what is the S Factor? Well, it is a fun sexy workout started by actress Sheila Kelley that works with the shape of your body to tone and sculpt while boosting your confidence as a sexy woman. It has been all the rage with celebrities like Terri Hatcher, Kate Hudson and Lindsay Lohan. I gave it a go when I was in LA, the 2 hour class consisted of dim lights, yoga mats, and dancing poles, yes poles. Grant it, you might feel a little out of your comfort zone at the beginning of your class and a little too sober to “do that”, but by the end you are dancing and having a blast while getting a great core workout and feeling beautiful and sexy at the same time. Sessions are 8 week based with 1 class a week for a total fee of $440, this may be a little on the pricy end but well worth it, think of it as a personal trainer that’s funky, flirty and fun! To learn more check out www.sfactor.com. How do you stay in shape, yoga, running, pilates? Do you think you could do the S Factor?

The S factor definitely sounds like a fun workout! I love doing pilates to stay in shape, but I have been running recently because sadly my pilates DVD has gone MIA :(

I've just started a running program - with intervals. I'm really excited and plan to run my first 5K this summer. I think I could do the S Factor workout. I've done a couple simular classes (sans pole) at my previous gym and really enjoyed it.

I do the high protein/low carb diet. I take my daily vitamins, flax seed, and protein shakes. I do pilates for the stretching and toning 3 times a week, lift weights 5-6 times a week working on different muscle groups alternating days, and do cardio for 45 minutes 6 times a week. I have 1 cheat day where I can eat anything I want, which I usually save for my saturdays. I am always willing to try out new workout methods. I would try the S Factor instead of my cardio and pilates. Just to TRY!

I stay in shape by not putting on the weight in the first place! I stay toned with mountain biking, walking and playing golf once a week. I guess that I am lucky and have good genes, but just staying a bit active can really make a lot of difference and not just with your body, but your mind!

TO STAY IN SHAPE, I JOG IN THE EVENINGS ON THE LAKE WHERE IT IS VERY PEACEFUL OR IN THE PARK WHERE I CAN BE AT EASE AND RELAX. I ALSO DO BELLYDANCING WHICH HELPS ALOT AND TRY NOT TO EAT AFTER A CERTAIN TIME AND NOT DRINK SOFT DRINKS AFTER A CERTAIN HOUR.

I stay in shape in so many ways. I run for thirty miuntes daily with a family member or one of my close friends. Also, on weekends I may do a workout class or two depending on my schedule. I do lots of at home workouts when I cant go out and run in the winter. I do pilates, abs, and many others. I also i do dance. I could do the sfactor because it looks very fun and i love fun things!

I jog all the time because cardio, from what I hear, is the best kind of exercise. Plus, the longer you do it, the more calories you burn. I'm not sure if I could do the S factor, though, because I'm used to exercising on my own schedule & I'm totally not good with the rhythm thing.

I think I could do the S Factor but it seems too pricey for me. I stay in shape by doing my own workouts. I have bought hand weights and an exercise ball. You'd be surprised what you can come up with to do with just that. Besides, when I'm doing my own workouts I can listen to music or watch a movie. You can look up moves on the internet that work on certain muscles and do those by yourself. I dont think I need a personal trainer, its just a matter of getting up the motivation to really work hard.

I would totally do the SFactor. I would probably wait until winter though, just so that the bruises could be concealed by winter warm clothes. Currently, I go to the gym 3 times a week and try to play outside as much as possible. Who says playing in the park has to end with elementary school?

the S factor is a fun sounding way to work out, i always injoy working out more to music or dancings as working out. And 8 sessions for only 440 sounds like a pretty good deal. You get to burn off engery and learn a new skill. sounds like a fun and good idea

I stay in shape by swimming and doing lots of walking. Swimming for a half hour a day three times a week dropped me down twenty pounds last summer and I can't wait for our pool to be open again this summer for me to start going again! I don't know that I could do the S-factor because of physical limitations, but I think it's a rather chipper way for ADULT women to get excercize. However, I worry that it would not be such a good thing for young girls because of the conotations behind the pole.

I used to hate any type of exercise, but I finally learned to get into by using my ipod, and I do everything to music, especially running. Either on the treadmill or outside.. It's always a lot of fun to work out w/ friend because you get some great tips. My favorite way to stay in shape and maybe lose some weight is belly dancing! it's super easy, and you could take a class or get a dvd tht teaches you. I think i could do the S factor, because it dancing. Best way to stay in shape is to have fun doing it.

I recently had a baby so I am in dire need of getting back in shape. Right now I take the baby for walks but that's about it. The S factor seems like it would be really intimidating at first, especially the pole dancing. But I bet after you got used to it that it would be a lot of fun and husbands and boyfriends would love the results!

To stay in shape, i like to eat lots of fruits, veggies, and low calorie foods. I like to go for a morning jog too, it gets me in shape, and helps wake me up before work. Sometimes i watch yoga videos though, that is very relaxing. Sign up for a local gym , for some extra exercise and help staying on your fitness plan. And yes, i think i COULD do the S factor. =]

I feel lucky to have won it and only paid $6.50 for it (shipping was $25.00) If I ever have the courage, I probably try pole dancing :)

I jog 1/2 an hour in the morning and 1/2 an hour in the evening (I'm getting a treadmill next month!) I do 100 crunches a day (in the morning) I'm in pretty good shape, I'm 28 and have 2 children!

Like taking the stairs instead of the elevator or getting up to chage the clannel if I'm watching tv. Little things, I know but I try to do the best I can. I've even tried Carman Electra's bed arobics! I love them!

I think that the S Factor is something that I would definitely try. It's about the same price as a trainer for about the same number of sessions and I bet you'll have a lot more fun with the S Factor than you would with the trainer and weights. I usually get my core workout at the gym doing the basic, boring cardio and weight training so this would definitely be a nice twist to my workout :)

I try to run as much as possible, I also enjoy taking dance classes which is a fun alternative to the elilptical and weights. I'd love to do the S factor but 440.00 is way expensive! You don't have to spend thousands in a year to look good!

I stay in shape by walking lots, taking the stairs and parking my car far in parking lots. I don't have a lot of time to exercise but I make the most of my day-to-day activities to make them most beneficial. Some times I go to pilates or yoga classes.

The S Factor seems a little pricey for me, but I'd love to check out something like that. I have digital cable and do the free exercise programs there. They're always changing so it's a nice way to spice up my routines. Other than that, I like yoga and other fitness at home. With a two year old and a full time job, I just don't have the time or energy to make it to the gym right now!

The "S" factor workout sounds fun, but I have already invested in my home gym. For me, what gives me the best work out and motivation is exercising with my sister...she's cheaper than hiring a personal trainer. You only need to hire a trainer one or two times to get the gist of what they would do for you, then just recreate it with a buddy and you'll be getting the star treatment.

There are many other great exercise prgrams out there and I think that each person needs to find the one that is right for them.

However I was blown away that I was sweating and sore for 3 days after the class, I thought there was no way this was harder than an hour long spin class! By the end of the class I was having a GREAT time and felt super comfortable....you seem to bond with the other women in the begining class for trying something so different together. It is pricey but well worth it-Challenge yourself and try it :)

I think I would try S factor if it was in my area. However, I have found the easiest and cheapest way to keep in shape for me is running. I run outside though, because it gives me something to look at and makes the time go by faster. There are classes in MD that are about $10 a class and are pole dancing, chair, and floor dancing aerobics. Its called Xpose. My friend goes every week, and swears by it, plus you learn some really good moves.

I've always been in good shape but after having my daughter a year ago, exercising was my last priority. Now that she is older I've started making time to exercise again. I joined an exercise program called Stroller Strides. It is awesome because you can workout with your child next to you. There's no need to get a sitter or drop your child in a random gym daycare center. It is a great full body workout that includes weights. You make friends with other parents which makes you become acountable and motivated. I would love to do the S Factor! A friend of mine back in college installed a pole (I know it sounds crazy) in her living room to exercise. It was so much fun and an amazing workout. Is it anywhere else but LA?

To stay in shape, I alternate between jumping rope, lifting weights, and riding a stationary bicycle. I jump rope for at least 10 minutes or longer if I feel like it; I life 20 pound weights in each hand, 3 sets of 10; and I ride my bike for 5 miles every day. I would probably not feel comfortable doing the S Factor. I prefer to be alone or with one close friend. I don't like the feeling of beign watched. :)

I broke up with my boyfriend last year and was feeling a little down. A friend suggested trying S-Factor to help re-build my self esteem. S-Factor is the most incredible, empowering form of exercise. It makes you feel so comfortable in your body. The dim lights help hide any imperfections you think you have. And the more clothes you take off, the darker the room gets.

I live in Ventura, CA and there is a Shop on Main Street that offers pole workout classes. At first my friend and I laughed and thought what a great gift to give to our stripper friend but then we decided that we should try it one time just to see what it was about and I was amazed at how much strength you have to have and endurance. It really does whip you into shape and help tone up the hardest areas of the body. If you look around your area it is possible to find similar classes and although it sounds kind of crazy and maybe a little "Trashy" at first trust me you'll end up loving it.

I love Shelly Kelly, I have been following her S Factor program since her first appearance on Oprah. It's a fun, sexy, workout you can do with DVDs in the privacy of your own home, so an LA address is not necessary. Her monthly news letter, is a great read, I enjoy lamenting along with her the sex issues still facing woman in American and love the overall vibe of sisterhood. As far as my own workouts, I'm a huge fan of the healing power of yoga. I also used to take belly dance, but wasn't getting any good at it so I quit. I would certainly do an S Factor class if it was in my area and I could afford it.

I have never tried the S Factor workout, so I don't know that much about what actually is done during the class, but I think it probably would be a great workout based on the feedback I've seen. I like to mix workouts, so my body doesn't always use the same muscles and body parts all the time, so I think it would be great to incorporate into like a cross-training program. Plus, it never hurts to develop a sexier you for yourself, your mate, and your intimacy. I bet a lot of couples have benefited from this!

I was able to accept my body for what it is, while getting a relaxing workout. If the S factor wasn't so expensive, I would definitely consider it.

I stay in shape by eating well and staying busy - yard work, chasing my 4-yr. old, etc. I also like yoga and going for walks outside. Recently I stopped eating fast food so much at lunchtime and started eating a Lean Cuisine or something instead and added more fiber to my diet. I was suprised at the weight I lost! I thought before these frozen meals weren't enough food, but once I got used to it, it was fine. I just make sure to keep healthy snacks at my desk - yogurt, fruit, nuts, etc. I'm also trying to watch my emotional eating. The S Factor sounds like something that would be interesting to try. If I could get over my initial inhibitions, I think it could be fun! But the price? No way. Not unless I win the lottery!

Well, after 3 children I've learned how to get back into shape several times. After the babies, I do 30 minutes cardio and follow it up with 30 mintues of free weights and typically just cut back on my food intake. I don't go on a diet, per se, but I eat moderately and don't over endulge in anything. I've found if I cut out sugar or carbs completely I typically fail so by cutting back alot I don't feel like I am missing out and the pounds come off. I will typically loose the baby weight in 8 weeks and get toned up in 12!

I do not think I could do the S Factor because I am in my mid 60's and when my brain says jump,my body says no. I just do not think I could lift myself up on the pole, but it looks like fun.

I work out by running and doing yoga. Running has been a part of my life for 19 years (Wow! I didn't even realize!). Running keeps me "going" and gives me an invigorating start to my day. I started doing yoga about 9 months ago and find it to be very relaxing and meditative. It helped a lot at the onset because I was going through a separation and doing some soul searching at the time. It helps my mind! and for that matter, so does running.

The combination of running, yoga, pilates, and dance sounds like a great workout but dancing poles? You're right, I would have a hard time with that. Also, I could never afford it and there are no places for it near me. Does Sheila Kelly have any videos or anything that don't require poles - maybe just a mat. That's more in my price range (and likelihood of actually doing the workout)!

Hi - I run 3 times a week pushing my son in a jogging stroller, with my daughter riding her scooter with me. It is a great workout and great fun; also gets the kids out in the fresh air, and exposes them to fuh fitness as well! S factor sounds like a ton of fun - yes, I would be a little shy at first, I know, but it sounds like a blast! When you make exercise fun, you can create a routine worth keeping, that's for sure!

In order to stay in shape I work out 5 times a week: Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays I spend 60 minutes doing Pilates with my husband and jog for about 30 minutes at a time. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I spend 60 minutes in my Hydro Fit Class (combination of aerobic and core work out in the deep end of the pool) at my local pool and some extra core, back, and lower extremety exercises for toning purposes. Mixed with a nutrious diet of course. I think I would love participating in the "S Factor" - it would reawaken my dancer side in me and force me to be more outgoing especially done with a group of strangers. This would be fun and most definitely exciting!

The way I stay in shape is dancing, jazz, modern, ballet, lyrical, hip-hop, etc. When I dance it is so fun that I can't believe I'm also working out. Now that summer has starting I have also been doing water aerobics, such as jogging, swimming and doing arm work outs in the pool. You not only get fit, but tan too!

I have always been active and very conscious of my health/fitness...daily 6 mile runs, yoga, pilates, Total Immersion swimming, gym workouts (love those walking lunges). Working out relieved my work stress and allowed me to eat my desserts without guilt. I always felt great but nothing makes me feel better than SFactor...been a Houston student since the studio's opening and it has really transformed my body and mind. Talk about the best form of muscle control...you'll work the muscles you've never worked before and regardless of how fit you think you are, you will be challenged (in a great way). Anyone can take this class, whether a size 0 or a size 14. It's not a competition to be the best. It's learning how your body likes to move and going with that flow. Before SFactor, I was happy with my body, but now I love every single inch of it...even while devouring a tres leches or creme brulee. Take an introductory class and I promise you'll love it! Note: I still run and workout at the gym but not as much...and I incorporate my SFactor moves into every workout.

The S factor sounds interesting, my only concern is how many and who are in the class with you? I am on the plus side of things and think I may be a little embarassed by this with a huge class. I would be willing to try this, I think it would be kinda fun!

Sinse I am a mom of two young boys and my husband works late, I try to stay in shape by using my elliptical machine for 1 hour a day, 4 to 5 days a week. I have also cut back on snacking and meal portions. I would love to learn the S factor and I'm sure my husband would like it. He tells me I should try to learn belly dancing.
