In January, 2015 I weighed the most I ever have and was in the worst shape of my life. This book has helped me to turn the tables on all of that in less than 4 months. It is hands down the BEST workout book I have ever owned/best workout program I have ever committed to. Sean Bartram is a genius.
This book has a wide range of HITT workout routines and is appropriate for ALL levels of fitness from beginner/out of shape to fit/athletic. No equipment is needed. All you need is your body, some good shoes, determination, and maybe a yoga mat for stretches (optional though, really). All exercises are explained in sufficient detail with full color photos to demonstrate the moves.
This book is particularly excellent for those on a time crunch (me) who are looking to get into or stay in shape. The workouts range from 5-60 minutes with the majority of routines being 10 minutes or less. You will be AMAZED at the results that you can get in such a short period of time! Do not think that short means easy and do not think that you cannot achieve GREAT results with such little time investment. You will be investing in other ways besides time: sweat and brief periods of VERY intense work.
This book has a fit test that readers are encouraged to take every 2 weeks to track progress and to determine which level of fitness they categorize into, and thereby which workouts are appropriate for them (levels 1-3). I highly recommend doing this. I also recommend keeping track of each day you exercise, which routine you do, and your comments about it (“couldn't finish such and such exercise”,
“getting easier”, etc). I have found doing this to be very helpful and motivating as I can look back to certain routines that I did months ago and see how I have grown in a short period of time.
The workouts start off "easier" (by no means "easy" though) and become progressively more and more difficult. There is a lot of room to grow with this book and there is a lot of variety to keep you from getting bored.
I started this program February 24th, of 2015 and was very out of shape. I had not been doing any sort of exercise program for over a year. I weighed 143 pounds and was 26% body fat. I committed myself to doing 3-4 HITT workouts a week (most 10 minutes or less with a goal of doing one longer HITT workout a week if possible) combined with a healthy diet (read any of Dr. Fuhrmans books). The first time I did the fit test I scored 56 points (level 1). While I did not meet my goal of 4 workouts every week I found it relatively easy to keep to my commitment because of the fact that the workouts are so short. It's hard to say, “I can't find time for a 7 minute workout”, so most of the time I followed through. That being said I had some weeks where I only managed 2 workouts and 1 week where I did none.
Fast forward to June 3rd, 2015. I scored 84 on my fit test and have reached a level 2! I now weigh 132 pounds and my body fat is 23%. I have dropped 2 pants sizes and my husband keeps commenting on how fit I look! Multiple co-workers have noticed the difference in my body. I can't wait to see where I am this time next year!
Do not be discouraged if you can't complete a workout in the beginning. That's pretty normal and the book even talks about this. When I first started I was pooped out from the warm out stretches alone. Now I look forward to those days when I can do a longer (14-27 minutes) workout. I now find the routines FUN – who would have thought?! And don't think fun means easy either! I have simply learned to enjoy the difficulty of the workouts because I know that I get so much out of them.
This book has literally become my “bible” and I doubt I will ever get rid of it or ever tire of it. Even if you work through all of the routines at all levels and tire of that you can then create your own custom workouts by making various combinations of the individual exercises in the book.
If you're on the fence, take the leap. It is WELL worth the 13 bucks.
