YES it works! (But, let me quickly address the nay-sayers -- It seems to me that most of the complaints are based on the fact that nobody reads the fine print of what they are buying. If you've ever bought anything with a "free trial" before, realize that you will be charged unless you opt-out. Buy the workout system only!!! If you want to go back and buy the other stuff, then you can still do that, usually at a discount). These workouts are meant to be a solution for two types of people - #1) those who complain about not having enough time in their week to workout, and #2) beginners who need to be eased into the program. I am a returning user who is in the worst shape of my life, so I'm starting here. I've done the Firm's hour-long programs, and THEY WORK, but they are super-challenging. I see this as an easy three-month plan at a dollar per day for me to get back into working out. You can't get bored with this program because each CD is only used once per month (unless you add on the bonus 13th "Kickstart" CD to a workout session). The meal plan is pretty straightforward in the traditional "eat less and incorporate more fruits and veggies" type of way, so I've decided to do this in conjunction with the South Beach Diet -- (buy the book if you want to scare yourself silly about your health and then get motivated to eat better). I'm sure this diet plan is fine, but I trust the cardiologist's diet a little bit more since, A) you can eat as much as you want, and B) it actually works - I've done it. Remember, if your current exercise plan is non-existent, then ANY exercise is going to show results. This one just boils the best bits down into a compact and easy-to-follow system. How can that be bad?

It works. I have lost 60 pounds over a year 9started size 18, now size 6). As I am post-menopause, I combined it with a low calorie diet. My belly is flat and tight, my core is strong, I can throw 40 pound boxes of cat litter into a cart without a problem, I can balance on one leg to get dressed easily, I have tons of energy, and take the stairs 2 at a time. POST MENOPAUSE. These programs are phenomenal!!! Emily, Rebecca, Allison, Kelsie, and Jen are amazing personal coaches. As the year has gone on, I went to daily workouts, then doubled them up. I SWEAR BY Jen's extra workout -- great abdominal, and I always lose more weight when I do both her programs 3 alternating days in a week.
