I did Tracey's six-week plan and couldn't believe how easy it was to follow and how quickly results showed! The great things about this book are that Tracey details a healthy eating program and shows you how to exercise more efficiently to get results. I was already exercising and thought I had a pretty healthy diet, but even making small changes in the way I did things had huge results. I feel better, look better, and have more energy. I have incorporated Tracey's plan fully into my life. People ask me if I am still "doing Tracey Mallett" and while I don't feel like I am on a "plan" this is just the way I live now...and it feels great! I highly recommend this book.

This program is a smart and thorough way to tone your body, improve your eating habits, increase your energy, and fit it in to a busy lifestyle. The 6-minute segments and food advice are really very good!

Caveat: I give it 5 stars BUT I feel that following the instructions in the book adds up AT FIRST to a lot more than 6 minutes per segment. If you follow along with the DVD, however, then the 6-minute intervals really do take only 6 minutes.

So, if you learn easily from written pages and B&W photos, then the book will be all you need, and you'll get faster at the different segments as you repeat them. If (like me) you need to SEE the exercises being performed or prefer to exercise along with someone else, then you will need to purchase the additional DVDs. They are not yet released but I have already ordered them as I KNOW I will use them. (The DVD included with the book has four excellent 6-minute segments.)

The food advice in the book is sensible, not at all "diet" style. It just makes sense both from a food quality as well as quantity standpoint, and also from a timing point of view: it's recommended that you eat six times per day, eat good protiens, smart carbs, and lots of frutis and vegs.

Tracey is motivating, encouraging and friendly, not preachy; she has a business and two young kids, like many of us; she used real women (including her mum!) to test out the program and saw positive results in all those who stuck with the program for 6 weeks. And the results weren't ridiculous claims of loosing vast amounts of weight or becoming a super-model, they were real, attainable and honest results.

If this sounds like a way you'd like to approach weight loss and/or maintenance, and attaining a healthful lifestyle and more energy, then you won't be disappointed.

Tracey Mallett's 6 Minute Quick Blast Method is the perfect answer to the fitness needs of a busy person. With 3 kids under the age of 6 (including 3 year old twins) and a full-time work schedule, I have very limited time for exercise, but with the minimal time required for this program I been able to fit regular exercise back into my life and have seen dramatic results in just a few short weeks.

The 6 Minute Quick Blast Method is fantastic. With a lot of variety in the exercises and options to customize the workout based on what you feel like doing that day (e.g., focus on upper body, more on abs, more on lower body, or more total body), you never get bored with it. I would even venture to say...it is fun! The best part is you can break it up and just do 6 minutes at a time, so there's no excuse for why you can't fit it into a hectic day. The exercises are tough enough that you feel like you are really accomplishing results, but they don't leave you exhausted and sore - things that would make you not want to do it again the next day.

Following Tracey's guidelines in her book and the two videos have helped me accomplish great results in less than 30 minutes each day. Before this, I thought I had to work out for an hour a day to get results, and always ended up quitting any program I started as I just couldn't commit to that kind of time each day. Thanks to Tracey's program, I now have a solution to an exercise routine that I can commit to for the long term, as I know I can find the short amount of time to stick with it day after day.

Tracey's book brilliantly shares her years of expertise and experience in health, nutrition, and fitness. This is clearly a program written by a woman for woman. Tracey understands all those bulges and jiggles that many woman are self conscious about and has designed exercises to target those areas. The exercises are designed to work out several muscle groups at a time, so you get more bang for your buck! A very quick and efficient way to work out and GET results.
The 6 minute segments can be broken up throughout the day. No excuse not to squeeze in a quick blast here and there!
The food program is very easy to follow. It doesn't require unusual ingredients, just simple shopping and prep. It is easy to stick to because it doesn't eliminate any food groups. It is all about portion control and timing.
I participated in Team Mallet and Tracey's Sexy in 6 worked for me! In just six weeks I lost 4% body fat and several inches which means I replaced fat with muscle! Once you see the results, you'll be motivated to adopt this healthy life style forever! Let's face it, who doesn't want to look like Tracey!
