I find the program challenging and intense, but I have a few issues:
1. As the other posters have stated, this program is very “plyometric happy”. I don’t have a problem with this for conditioned athletes, but for untrained individuals, this is asking for trouble.
2. Even for trainees who think that they are in shape, this program can be challenging enough that they may not be able to complete their workout. This can create a feeling of failure that could hinder compliance. Particularly with beginners, I think that experiencing success is very important.
3. Once you finish the program, then what? Start over again? Buy a similar program? I think it is crucial to both train AND educate clients so that they are able to go off on their own and still experience success. This is the main problem I have with programs like this…it’s not that they are bad…but they fail to teach clients how to do things on their own.
I know this sounds overly negative, but like I said, I found it challenging and had fun with some of the workouts. What I am saying is that it is NOT for beginners, obese individuals, de-trained individuals, or the chronically ill.
