DietBet – Bet on yourself!

by Destini on April 1, 2014

Hey everyone! I know some of you might still be seeing that beautiful white snow outside and may feel like it will be here FOREVER. But I promise(I hope) that Summer WILL come and along with Summer brings bathing suits, shorts, dresses etc. And I don’t know about any of you, but I have noticed that this horribly long winter has left not only that snow, but also a nice cushion around my body.  I am okay with that cushion right now(keeps me warm), but come Summer….I will wish it to be gone just like I wish that snow to be gone.


I have started up my regular workout routine again, back to eating pretty solid (No more oreos, side note…the USA has the best flavours of Oreos EVER. Us Canadians get vanilla or regular..maybe this is for the best). But I have decided to make a nice HEALTHY bet on myself. Nothing like a little personal investment to keep me accountable. It isn’t a HUGE investment, but for $25, I have committed myself to lose 4% of my body fat in 4 weeks. And with the help of DietBet, it can be a group competition.

If, at the end of 4 weeks, you have lost 4% of your body weight, you will split the pot with any other participants that have also hit the goal. That’s only 1% a week, very doable!. This is open to anyone and I encourage you to get friends and family involved!

Let’s all make ourselves accountable 🙂 And I may have an extra prize for the person who loses the most %!

Please click here to get full details on how this works

The contest starts April 14th and your final weigh-in is May 12th(just in time for that warm WEATHER) and I’m looking forward to hosting this for you all.  If you have any questions  please email me at .

Be your personal BEST!

Cheers 🙂

Let’s Compare – Revolt Fitness Check-In – Week 5

by Destini on June 5, 2013

Happy Wednesday! Today is my rest day and it was great to be able to get some stuff done. I am mid week into week 6 for my Revolt program. Still seeing big changes! Week 5 I pushed through like always. Even when I am tired and can’t keep going…I go!

I was asked in a comment what my opinion and the difference on DailyHiit (formally known as BodyRock)  vs Revolt Fitness. Now as most of you already know, I am currently a blogger for the Revolt Fitness program. I have in the past did DailyHiit.  I feel that this would be much better addressed in a post than just in a comment.

Before I get in this, please remember that even though I get the Revolt Fitness program for free, my opinions are always going to be my own. That being said, lets get to it!


Revolt Fitness – Has a subscription, $10 monthly, $27 3-month access and $50 for a yearly subscription

DailyHiit – Free


Revolt Fitness – requires basic equipment(free weights, kettlebells, yoga mat, bench/chair/couch, optional – medicine ball, exercise ball). I actually order my equipment from (for us Canadians). It is cheap and has fast shipping. I also was able to get pink kettlebells- :P. Though you can get any of this stuff where fitness equipment is sold.

DailyHiit – requires equipment that I feel is specialized equipment, that is quite a bit costly if you get it all. The Equalizers they use often are $114, Sandbag ranges $52-99, Ggi ball is $129+, T Grip-Bar $129, PowerBlock Dumbell $199.


Revolt Fitness – has a designed diet plan, that changes weekly and every 6 weeks you get a new plan. So always changing food.

DailyHiit – Nothing that has been really designed, I know they talk about it on the community, but it is not in as great detail.


Revolt Fitness – Has a great community, and its private to only members, so members feel open to posting progress photos. Also Nichole Huntsmans(the create and trainer) is VERY involved in it. She responds to comments and keeps people motivated (HUGE plus)

DailyHiit – HUGE community, open to anyone. The creators are involved, but I have seen questions go unanswered for a very long time, however other more experienced members with the program seem to help here.


Revolt Fitness – Always changing, each week you are given 3 new videos. Workout 5 days a week.  Your week would look like this:

  • Monday – Cardio
  • Tuesday – Lower Body Workout
  • Wednesday – Rest Day
  • Thursday – Cardio
  • Friday – Upper Body Workout
  • Saturday – Cardio
  • Sunday – Rest Day/Meal Prep

The cardio days still use weights and workout both upper and lower body.

Daily Hiit – Always changing, new videos daily. Workout 7 days a week(weekend optional). Your week would look like this:

  • Monday – hiitbody -full body burn
  • Tuesday – hiitlean – sculpting lean muscle
  • Wednesday – hittmax – cardio intense bootcamp
  • Thursday – hittlite – lite full body sweat
  • Friday – hiitreps – body blasting rep challenge
  • Sat/Sunday – hittwkend – toughest moves of the week in a single workout

They also offer bonus videos to those who want more!

That pretty much is all I can think about for comparisons. Both programs are amazing and both continue to be very successful for many people. The key is just to try and find the right one for you.

See you guys tomorrow with a YUMMY smoothie! Gotta go help the husband…..he can’t hang laundry alone apparently :p

Fitness Friday – Revolt Fitness Check-In Week 2

May 13, 2013

I did it again! It is MONDAY and I’m posting my Fitness Friday post. But it wasn’t because I didn’t setup a publish date, but because I’ve been sick. Yeah this weekend was spent with my bed and PJ’s. But I am pushing through, and making this happen today. I have a confession, when I first agreed to doing this Revolt Fitness Challenge, my exceptions weren’t that high. I always compare my fitness programs to those of when I had a personal trainer.  And guess what? I have one right now! Her name is Nichole Huntsman and she kicks my arse 5 days a week. I am soooo happy I […]

Fitness Friday – Revolt Fitness Check-In week 1

May 3, 2013

It has been 5 days since I started on this new fitness venture called Revolt Fitness. So far I have surprisingly enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. I’m quite impressed with the whole scale of it. And as promised will go into some detail about it today. I have done other “at-home” fitness programs, and they have always been a good cardio workout, but I’ve always been left with the feeling I still needed to go to the gym to lift weights. In this program, weights are included! This was a huge plus for this program.  An average week will look like 3 cardio days(don’t be fooled, […]
