10 Minute Trainer Revew 1

I can't believe that I'm about to share this information . . . I'm embarrassed to say that as a P90X grad the Cardio 10 Minute Trainer kicked my butt. How sad is that? Either I am pathetic or that video was awesome.

Here's the deal, I woke up on my 40th birthday and decided to give a video a try. I was still in my pj's and since it was my first viewing I didn't even give it my all. I was more curious to check out the video than to really work out. I did all the exercises with no bands and they really got my heart pumping! It was great. The 10 minutes flew by and when I went to walk downstairs after the mini workout I could feel the pump in my legs - as if I just biked. How could this be? Is there really a switch that gets flipped the minute you turn 40 that makes you feel old? I was disgusted with myself.

And to make matters even worse, when I got up the next morning I could not believe how sore my butt was! I know exactly what moves got me too. It was those skaters. i did them nice and deep and let me just tell you - they work! I've been sore for 3 days . . . from a 10 minute workout, in my jammies.

I am thrilled with the Cardio video and can't wait to try the rest. I hope the workouts are really great and it's not just me being old! Stay tuned for more.

Hi. I wanted to see if I found someone that felt as sore as I did after doing my first round of these videos..I have done the 10 min. total body and the's only been a couple of days but I feel as if I had spent hours at the gym...I am 29 years old and just had my second baby almost a year a it is time for me to burn the estra 20 pounds that kind of stayed. I think this program is really going to do it..Who doesn't have 10 min. this is the perfect workout, since my problem is time with a five-year-old, and an 11-month old.
