Review of Turbulence Training: The Workout Program that Promises Maximum Fat Loss in Minimum Workout Time
Turbulence Training promises fast fat loss results for men and women who don’t have a lot of time for exercise. I’m sure you have heard this before and it sure is a bold promise. What’s more the workouts promise maximum results in as little as three workouts per week.
Let’s have a look at these significant claims, and see if the program really measures up!
Before that thought, let’s take a look at the person behind the workouts. You may have heard of Craig Ballantyne’s name previously many times in popular fitness magazines such as Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness. Perhaps it was from Oxygen or Shape magazines (all of the magazines want him to write for them!). So the program is clearly put together by a trusted fitness and fat loss expert.
In talking to Craig about his training and education background it’s easy to be intimidated. His credentials are very impressive, unlike the hundreds of trainers with weekend certifications that pop up at large commercial gyms. Craig’s experience goes way back to the mid-nineties. Since then he’s been active in both the gym and in the research lab. How’s this for impressive, he’s also led research trials on sport supplements, strength training, and cardiovascular training. That’s a bit more than your regular trainer now isn’t it?
Add to this, Craig has been a strength coach and has worked with hundreds of clients in thousands of training sessions. This gets you a guy with a unique and thorough background. Its not surprising he’s come up with a new training system for fat loss.
In fact, Craig’s articles are always pretty hard on traditional aerobic cardio workouts and go against a lot of what you may have heard in the past. So if you’re looking for new ways to spend 30 or 60 minutes doing cardio, then I can guarantee that this program is not for you. But if you are struggling to find time to workout and only have 45 minutes to workout, say a couple of times per week, and you have limited access to equipment then you’ll like what Craig has for you here.
One question Craig always gets about the program is simply, “What is Turbulence Training?” Well according to Craig, its the unique blend of resistance training and interval training used in such a manner to boost your metabolism so that your body burns a significant amount of calories and fat between workouts. He says, “Cardio doesn’t boost your metabolism after exercise. Only strength training and interval training do that – while you work, sleep, and eat – your body will be shedding fat.” Sounds pretty good to me.
Fortunately for you, Craig’s unique system of bodyweight exercises, dumbell exercises, and interval training can all be done at home, with minimal equipment. It isn’t limiting though and if you are a bit stronger and have a chin up bar then you can take things to the next level. So sadly, if you are one of those people who loves exercise machines, or traditional cardio equipment, or marathon workouts, then this program is not for you.
Now I’ve used the program myself and can honestly recommend it to others. Why? Because no one has time for long workouts these days, that’s why! (Especially if they aren’t delivering results). After an eight or ten hour workday, a round-trip commute of 90 minutes, and spending time with my family, you just don’t have time to do another 90 minute workout every day of the week. Plus you don’t have to, that’s the thing. (Time with your family is gold and should be treated as such, but your time doesn’t have to compete when you use time efficient workouts)
In fact, I either get up early and do the workout before work, sneak it in between clients or at the end of the day if things are really busy. This workout is perfect for busy men and women. But its not the type of routine that is going to turn you into a massive looking pro bodybuilder. (If you want maximum muscle and want to bulk up, try some his Muscle Series of workouts). But the Turbulence Training system is far and away the best for burning fat without sacrificing muscle – so you end up lean, defined, chiseled and toned.
And its fun! Not fun like going to the circus, but fun as in not boring. So many workouts are boring (i.e. long cardio) or repetitive (i.e. doing the same exercises over and over again). But Turbulence Training uses a lot of unique (but not fluffy, just to be unique) exercises, including some cool, killer bodyweight moves that will make you more athletic and increase your functional and core strength. Once again it’s all done with minimal equipment needs.
One of the best things about Turbulence Training is that I am able to recommend this program to friends who are just starting out. This is because Craig has put together a 6-week introductory program, and a 4-week intermediate program in addition to the 16-week advanced training phase. Talk about taking you by the hand and showing you the way. Plus, as if that’s not enough, the Turbulence Training program comes with a massive amount of bonus workouts for muscle building, bodyweight only, advanced fat loss, and even a female specific bonus.
Each workout progresses into the next and it’s all proven with with hundreds of clients – so they are safe and effective. Sure, you can get other programs that leave you smashed and puking after the first workout, but Turbulence Training is not like that. Soreness doesn’t matter, only results matter! And you are in expert hands with Turbulence Training, and Men’s Health expert, Craig Ballantyne.
With Craig’s Turbulence Training you’ll also get a personal contract. This is basically your pledge to being committed to the program, and it has been shown to increase your chances of success dramatically. It also includes an ebook on Nutrition Guidelines from expert, Dr. Chris Mohr, Ph.D., and an extensive Q&A section, a 21-Healthy Habit Building Plan, plus the complete Turbulence Training workouts for beginner, intermediate and advanced level individuals.
All users will benefit from the Turbulence Training MP3 audio where Craig goes over the program, plus you can find every single exercise explained in detail, complete with photos, so it’s impossible to go wrong.
Okay, so let’s get this straight. Turbulence Training is NOT….
- Long, slow cardio workouts
- A machine-based exercise circuit
- A bodybuilding program to gain bulk
- A workout with lots of time-wasting isolation exercises
- A restrictive eating plan
Sorry, but Turbulence Training provides NONE of the above. On the other hand, Turbulence Training is perfect for busy men and women who want to burn fat in the comfort of their own homes without spending a lot of money on equipment or space on exercise machines. Oh, and you’ll actually look forward to these workouts and have fun.
If you’re in the slightest bit curious, I recommend you look closely at Craig’s program. I was very impressed with all of the Turbulence Training workouts, the bonuses, the guarantee, and Craig’s expertise. For the money, it’s the best deal in the fitness and fat loss industry – so much better than diet pills! And remember…
Craig Ballantyne’s Turbulence Training is backed by a 8-week money back guarantee. By this time you will have started to see significant progress even if you skip a few workouts! Bottom line though, this is a real guarantee… if you are not completely satisfied, you will receive your money back, no “ifs,” “ands” or “buts.” So you really have nothing to lose.
