Product Description

Forget the idea that more is better when it comes to exercise. With PACE Express, you don't have to put in a lot of time to make big changes in your health and your physique. PACE Express is a physician-created program designed to give you maximum fat-loss results in only 12 minutes a day. The reason it's superior to other programs is that it's progressive. That means that every workout is different and you're progressively challenging yourself to get maximum results. It's the fastest, most effective workout program on the market. All it takes is 12 minutes a day for a leaner, fitter you. PACE Express creator, Dr. Al Sears, MD, spent years perfecting the P.A.C.E. program to give you maximum results in only 12 minutes a day. The secret behind P.A.C.E. is its one-of-a-kind accelerating progressivity that takes your fitness to the next level, regardless of your current fitness level. Here's just part of what you are going to accomplish in the next six weeks: - Build the strength and power of your heart and lungs - Reduce your risk of heart attacks and cardiovascular disease - Enjoy deeper, more focused breathing - Develop a powerful and disease-resistant immune system - Dramatically increase your energy levels - Increase your lean muscle mass, and - Burn fat, even while you rest! Dr. Sears created P.A.C.E. in the 1990s as a way to help rehabilitate the injured hearts of his patients. He knew the path to a strong, powerful heart was not in long-distance running or "cardio" exercise. So he began asking his patients to do short bursts of activity, followed by rest that progressively got more intense as time went on. And P.A.C.E. was officially born. Since then, P.A.C.E., which stands for Progressively Accelerating Cardiopulmonary Exertion, has received world-wide recognition as a more effective, more exhilarating path to a strong heart, robust lungs and a naturally lean and effortlessly energetic body.

I just completed week two of this six week program and let me tell you, I can see and feel the difference. First know this: I HATE exercise. I don't even like this exercise, but this is exercise I actually DO and will continue to do. Every morning I wake up and do a 12 minute routine (it takes a bit longer than 12 minutes; usually no more than 25). It's set up like this: you do a four minute warm up set of eight moves; 30 seconds of each move. Then you rest until you have your breathing under control and your heart rate comes down. Then you do the same eight moves for another four minutes at a higher intensity. Then you rest until your breathing is under control and your heart rate comes down. (Can you tell this rest is my favorite part?) Then you do the eight moves again, at the highest intensity you can muster, with the last 30 seconds being the most massive push you can get yourself to do. And that's it. You will be out of breath and covered in sweat. You rest and you are done.

There are three variations of each move demonstrated by five instructors; the standard (three instructors), the advanced (one instructor), and the modified (one instructor). Most of the moves I do the standard, there are quite a few I do the modified, and a few I can even do the advanced. The way I do it, is I pick what I FEEL I can do and do it. During the warm up set is when I can do some of the advanced moves and by the last set I may do the same moves modified. It's all about how you feel. Unscientific as hell, but it works. Oh, so simple, but not easy. Also, some of the moves can be a little tricky to learn if you happen to uncoordinated like me. Just keep moving your body and you'll do fine.

For me, the best thing about this program is the rest.

The package includes 36 workouts intended for 6 workouts a week for 6 weeks. Each workout lasts about 18 minutes, with only 12 of those minutes being actual activity broken up by 3 four-minute segments. In-between each segment is a 90 second rest to bring your heart rate within 30 beats of your starting heart rate and you can pause the DVD for longer if needed to fully recover. Each workout has 8 exercises that last 30 seconds each and are a selection of running, push-ups, high knees, jumping jacks, lunges, squats, kick-backs, sliders, side lunges, ab twists, etc. You are supposed to increase your intensity level with each segment, starting with a 5 and going to a 7 and then a 9. The workouts are definitely manageable and get your heart rate up.

I have previously followed an interval program after reading the PACE e-book (which is horribly written). The concept is to workout 12-20 minutes doing intervals and to mix up the machines every few weeks. I used the treadmill at home and definitely saw results but then quit working out. What surprises me from these workout videos is that they are recommended for 6 days a week when I originally read the Dr.'s e-book he recommended every other day for intervals.

I have done about 10 of the workouts from the DVDs and then I just started doing the workouts in front of a TV show using my stopwatch, just switching up what activities I was doing each workout and being sure to kick my workout up a notch at the end so that I was breathing heavy and sweating by the end. I have been doing the workouts every other day or even every third day if I didn't have the time to get the workout in.

I just got this a few days ago because I saw it reviewed on Spark People. My gym closed so I'm looking for an alternative to traveling further out to another gym.

You are moving for 12 minutes but each workout segment is about 19 minutes. Three 4 minute workouts, rest in between each set and take your pulse. Each workout starts and ends with taking you pulse. I thought that was a little annoying at the beginning but after the second set you're thankful for it.

At the begging of each workout the instructor demonstrates the workout your about to do. Each workout is a little different. I was a little concerned with how heavy the instructor was breathing after the first set which was the easier set. I thought that I might not make it to the end if this guy with those muscles couldn't catch his breath. But when I saw how fast he was recovering and his breathing was easing then I felt better because it showed how fit he was. He also talks throughout the workout so that didn't help his breathing. By the end of the third set he was sweating and breathing hard. He works out with 4 other people: 1 does the modified workout, 1 does the intense version and the other two are at regular intensity. The ratio is either 2guys/3girls or 3guys/2girls.

The six DVDs have 6 workouts each so depending on your fitness level you can have 6 to 18 workouts per disc using the different levels of intensity. They switch out the background people so you don't get board seeing the same people all the time. I don't want to fail to mention that the instructor is hot and cute. I don't have a male perspective to give but I can tell you that the men in the workout where sweating and breathing hard. I just got this so I'm still on disc 1 so if I remember later I can tell you how it's going. I would recommend.
