The PT 24/7 program is based around a set of 6 workout DVDs and a set of rubber "cardio bands" that are attached to MMA-style workout gloves. At first the site of rubber resistance bands made me cringe. I have literally never found bands that I actually enjoyed using, mainly because I hate having to hold them in my hands while I workout. But apparently Billy Blanks has figured out a nice solution to this problem: resistance bands that are attached to a pair of comfortable gloves, allowing you to use them without having to actually hold onto them during the exercises.
I gotta say, that's pretty damn cool. :)
One thing you can say about Mr. Blanks is that the guy makes some really effective workout programs and sells them for pretty cheap prices. Millions of people around the world have used Tae Bo workouts to lose weight, improve their bodies, and get fitter and healthier. And after all, Tae Bo was popular long before P90X was even invented. It really paved the way for P90X, Insanity, and all the other high-intensity home workout programs that are currently so popular. It's only fitting that Blanks gets a piece of the action with his own P90X alternative that just happens to cost about 60 bucks!
I plan to post PT 24/7 reviews and opinions here as they come in. Also, please be sure to leave your own reviews, testimonials, comments, etc. in the area below. Below is one quick review we were able to get our hands on a few days ago...
I ordered Billy Blanks's PT 24/7 package in January and have been using it for almost a month. I can tell you it's an awesome workout that I highly recommend to anyone who wants to burn fat fast and sculpt lean muscle. These are not easy workouts by any stretch of the imagination but Billy keeps things fun and enjoyable. The workouts are short and you end up burning a ton of calories in about 30 minutes.
The cardio bands are attached to the gloves and are easy and simple to use. But I like to change up my workouts and sometime I'll use very light hand weights instead of the bands, or no weights at all if I'm still a little sore. This is the 4th or 5th Billy Blanks home exercise program I've bought and it seems like every one is better than the last. I'm very satisfied with the PT 24/7 program, especially since it didn't cost very much at all. I know that I'll be able to lose the 15 pounds I gained at the end of last year quickly, hopefully by the end of March!- Regina Yost
