Do you think your busy schedule means you don’t have time to work out? Think again. Tony Horton’s new 10 Minute Trainer has taken away the last excuse you had for not losing weight and getting into shape.
But if you know anything about the world of fitness, you won’t be surprised. That’s just the kind of thing Tony does. For more than 20 years Tony has been using his signature blend of conditioning skills and motivational know-how to get people up and moving—famous people like Tom Petty, Billy Idol, Shirley MacLaine, Sean Connery, Annie Lennox, and Rob Lowe as well as ordinary Jane and Joe Publics. In fact, when Tony first introduced the Power 90 Home Bootcamp program, he almost single-handedly revolutionized the entire fitness industry in America. No longer did people need to go to a gym in order to get expert conditioning under the guidance of a personal trainer. With 10 Minute Trainer Tony keeps this revolution in American fitness going. By demolishing the “No time” excuse, Tony has made it possible for even the most harried among us to get the healthy, well-toned bodies we want.
For 10 Minute Trainer Tony developed a breakthrough Super Stacking Technique that’s a kind of multi-tasking for muscles. Using resistance bands, Tony has created moves that combine fat-burning cardio, total body toning, and targeted ab workouts all at the same time. And that means that you can get a complete, total body workout in just 10 minutes from start to finish. In addition to five super-efficient workouts, 10 Minute Trainer also includes Tony’s Pro-Grade Resistance Bands and Power Cardio Belt, a customized workout calendar to help you plan your rotations for maximum results, On-the-Go Workout Cards that fit into pocket or purse so you can workout even if there’s no DVD player handy, online chats with Tony, access to a supportive online community, and a lot more.
10 Minute Trainer is a great option for either men or women who are healthy enough for a fairly intense cardio workout and the resistance bands and cardio belt let you tailor the workouts to your fitness level. The program includes five 10 minute workouts: Total Body puts you through 10 head-to-toe moves, Lower Body targets thighs and buns, Cardio has you burning fat fast with simple kicks, lunges, and punches, Abs Routine works lower and upper abs as well as obliques so that you can kiss your spare tire goodbye, and Yoga Flex will stretch you out, deliver long, lean muscles, and leave you feeling revitalized.
With 10 Minute Trainer you will get the best results quickly if you complete at least one of the workouts every day. Ideally, you’ll combine a couple routines into one longer workout or do one workout in the morning and another in the evening. And it’s likely that as you get into the swing of things and start to feel the results, you’ll want to increase your workout when your schedule allows.
10 Minute Trainer is easy to do at home—or even away from home with the handy On-the-Go Workout Cards. The only tools you’ll need are the resistance bands and cardio belt, and you can even do the workouts without them if you prefer.
Following the 10 Minute Trainer exercise and diet guidelines has produced pretty dramatic results in only a few months for quite a number of people. Weight loss of between 20 and 30 pounds is not uncommon, and some people have lost close to 100 pounds.
As with most of the other Beachbody products, 10 Minute Trainer is more of an exercise program than a diet plan. On the upside, that means that you don’t need to purchase any special foods or meal replacement products. Tony does recommend a balanced, low-calorie, low-fat diet, and offers you some tips and recipes in the handy 10-Minute Meals booklet that comes with the package. But for detailed diet and nutrition advice, you’ll need to look elsewhere.
- Fast, Fast, Fast
- No more excuses
- Combine workouts for your individual needs
- Adjust the difficulty with resistance bands and cardio belt
- Convenient On-the-Go Workout Cards
- For best results quickly, you must do several workouts per day
- Very meager diet and nutrition advice
- Most dramatic weight loss results require special diet
The 10 Minute Trainer program is a terrific fitness option for men and women who think they are too busy to get in shape and stay that way. And since you can vary the difficulty of the workouts by using the resistance bands and cardio belt, the program is accessible for people at various levels of fitness. This is probably not the right program for you if you are primarily interested in a diet plan that includes an exercise component.
Some people following the 10 Minute Trainer plan have seen very dramatic weight loss of 30, 50, or even 90 pounds in only a few short months. More typical results tend to be in the range of 15-20 pounds.
