20 Minute Body Program by Brett Hoebel Review

I received this product to review. No other compensation was given. All opinions expressed are 100% my own.

The #1 excuse why people don't workout or cook for themselves is they "don't have enough time". As a very busy mom of four, I completely understand wanting to use lack of time as an excuse. However, I also know what I feel like after completely an awesome workout!

Thankfully, Brett Hoebel, celebrity trainer on NBC's The Biggest Loser season 11, has created a solution to help you get your workout in a quick 20 minutes! The 20 Minute Body focuses on 20 minute workouts and 20 minute healthy meals to get you in the best shape in the shortest amount of time.

I really enjoyed Brett Hoebels RevAbs series, which I still like to mix into my workouts. One of my favorite things about Brett is that he has a great personality and is a great motivator! I was really looking forward to trying out the 20 Minute Body, because I know how fun Brett can make a workout.

20 Minute Body includes 20 minute interval-style workouts designed for fast fat loss and body-toning. The workouts are efficient, effective and open to all fitness levels. You can start at the beginning with 20 days on the yellow DVDs and work your way up to the hardest level, the blue series. Each level of the program includes several different types of workouts. 
Here is what you get in the 20 Minute Body Program: 13 workouts on 11 DVDs (or a set of digital downloads) 3 for every 20 day cycle (Yellow, Orange, Blue) along with 2 bonus discs, a Nutrition Guide and Workout Calendar. Trilogy buyers also receive bonus “Booty by Brett” videos and the “Willpower” pdf to help your manipulate your Willpower.
What I love about all of these workouts is that they use my favorite type of training - high intensity interval training! High-Intensity Interval Training workouts are shorter, more challenging, and unleash a host of fat burning hormonal changes from the inside out that allows you to cut your training time in half. 
The real secret to why I love HIIT so much is that it gives you an awesome Afterburn! What is Afterburn? The more you push your nervous system in short, timed intervals, the more energy or calories your body has to burn to come back to a normal state of equilibrium and rest. The scientific principle behind this concept is called EPOC (excess post-exercise oxygen consumption), which creates an Afterburn effect where your body and metabolism are literally burning more calories for hours after a workout to return to a state of rest. Who does not want to be burning more calories hours later when you are relaxing on the couch?

Each workout is pretty repetitive, so you catch on quickly and have no trouble following and pushing yourself. I like how the workouts use your whole body, getting all your muscles revving. Of course, Brett adds his own Brazilian flare by adding some moves from the Brazilian martial art/dance capoeira, which sets some of these moves apart from other fitness workouts.
I would definitely recommend this program to anyone. You will get a great workout every time, no matter what fitness level you are! Of course, the best part is that it only takes you 20 minutes. With only a couple months until summer, now is the perfect time to get committed!
What are you waiting for? LETS DO THIS!!!

  1. While the mainstream fitness media still insists that aerobic
    exercise is a great way to lose weight, Turbulence Training users
    know that interval training is the better way to burn body fat.

    Still not convinced?

    A recent study published by the North American Association for the
    Study of Obesity, subjects aged 40 to 75 were instructed to do 60
    minutes of aerobic exercise per day for 6 days per week for an
    entire year.

    Given the amount of exercise, you'd expect weight losses of 20, 30
    pounds, or more, right?

    Well, the surprise findings showed the average fat loss for female
    subjects was only 4 pounds for the entire year, while men lost 6.6
    pounds of fat over the year. That's over 300 hours of aerobic
    exercise just to lose a measly 6 pounds of blubber. Not time well
    spent, in my opinion.

    So what's the better way? Stick with Turbulence Training, using
    interval training and strength training to get better bodysculpting
    results. With intervals, you'll achieve more fat burning results in
    less workout time.

    The next time you are out exercising, perform a session of interval
    training. If you are walking or running outside, find an incline
    that can challenge you for 60 seconds, then walk down for 60-120
    seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    If you walk or run on a treadmill, adjust the incline or speed to
    safely increase the challenge for 60 seconds, then return to the
    normal pace for 60-120 seconds, and repeat up to 6 times.

    You can also use a rowing machine, bicycle or stationary bike, or
    even an elliptical machine to do intervals.

    But whatever you do, stay away from boring, ineffective cardio
    exercise workouts and stick with Turbulence Training for your fat
    burning program.

    "I'm 25 and was seriously overweight at the start of this year. I've
    been doing the TT for Fat Loss Workouts and after 5 months of
    training. I've lost nearly 28lbs. I want to take this opportunity
    to thank Craig for making your knowledge so accessible and your
    articles and blogs that not only make us think about our
    lifestyles, but encourage us to change them for better health."

    "Turbulence Training makes so much sense and I really enjoy the
    different workouts so never get bored. From an aussie that was
    looking for something other than just another weight workout
    with the same old moves this has been a real eye opener for me and
    I have been telling my friends just how great the TT method is."
