The Devil.



This man is the devil.

He is Tony Horton - the creator of Ten Minute Trainer.

Husby was dying to have this for his birthday, and so that is what I got for him. One of his friends has it and has totally buffed/toned up. It comes with 5, 10 minute sessions targeting different areas of your body (total body, abs, lower body, upper body and yoga). I watched him moan and groan while doing it last night and I laughed at him.

And made fun of him.

Hrmph - how hard could it be? After all, it was only 10 minutes of cardio. Cinch!

Ummm. Or not.

He challenged me to do it with him tonight and I almost died 4 different times. It was pure torture. But the upside is that there is a countdown clock on the screen as your kicking and jumping and squatting and running (and crying), so you think to yourself, 6 minutes left.... 3 minutes left...... 21 seconds left!

What a workout!! I definitely recommend it if you are looking for a fast and effective full body workout. Everyone can squeeze in 10 minutes!

Just remember....I warned you that he was the devil.

Time for me to hit the shower! I'm drenched!

  4. Okay, I need something like this--but do you think it will be hopelessly beyond me? I'm woefully out of shape and having three stomach surgeries (two c-sections and an appendectomy) in 2.5 years really did a number on my stomach.

    Do I have any hope of being able to do ANY of this workout at the beginning?

  6. LOL!:)

    Thanks for the advice and the warning.;)

    When I get through with all of my back recovery nonsense, I will have to give this a try...I'm raising two teenage boys, so I think I could put up with the Devil for ten minutes.;)

  23. I just recently added you to my blog list. I have been reading your site for sometime now. I am also on your xanga and foodie friends site. I even posted a few things on foodie friends but not much cooking has been going on around here.. for I am on a strict diet and about to have weight loss surgery in December. Wow, like you asked for all that information. Anyway, I felt like I should let you know that I added you.. to my page. I hope you don't mind..

  24. That sure looks tempting! I'm with the other commenters, though, who are afraid of this guy's ten minutes killing those of us who are far from "in shape." I may have to give it a try, though. Thanks for the tip!

  25. Questions before I'm totally convinced to go buy this for my "husby" (who also LOVES to do his workouts at home in front of the TV) has he continued to use this since you originally posted this, and if so has he seen any results?

May the Lord bless you and keep you safe today! Thanks for the comment, friends! :)
