Facts about the Herbalife24FIT Dvds and Where to Buy

May 11th, 2012

What is Herbalife24FIT –  the facts and where to buy?

Herbalife24FIT is a 24-week program, designed to build your fitness in an effective and sustainable way. This home-fitness system utilizes periodization principles to systematically vary exercises and intensity, helping to achieve maximum physical adaptation

Why should. I choose Herbalife24FIT as my workout routine?

Herbalife24FIT is better than any other home workout program because:

  • You will be less likely to quit Herbalife24FIT once you get started because it follows scientific training principles.

  • Originally created for professional athletes, the program progresses your fitness naturally, so that you not only keep going, but never want to stop!

  • It is designed to protect your body from injury.

  • Herbalife24FIT is a program of handpicked exercises proven to make your body more resilient to injury. It also includes built-in rest days to allow for recovery and make your body stronger.

  • Herbalife24FIT trains your body to burn fat instead of carbohydrates for more efficient energy usage.

  • It makes you a “better butter (fat) burner.”

How long does the Herbalife24FIT program last?

Herbalife24FIT is a 24-week program, divided into three phases, each lasting eight weeks.

Phase 1 – Stability

Phase 2 – Strength

Phase 3 – Power

How is each eight-week phase broken down?

Over the course of each eight-week phase, you will be alternating between two types of workouts:

Strength Training Workouts

will focus on your physical structure, your muscles, bones, joints and connective tissue. These workouts are on discs 1, 2 and 3 in each phase.

Metabolic Workouts

will improve your metabolism (how your body burns calories). These workouts are on disc 4 of each phase.

How long does each workout last?

Each workout will take about 30 minutes.

What are rest days?

Every sixth and seventh day in the schedule, you will be given one day to rest and one day to participate in a recreational activity of your choice.

What are rest weeks?

In addition to rest days each week, every fourth week, you will also get to enjoy a modified, more relaxed schedule.

Why do I need rest days and weeks?

The body gets stronger while resting. That’s why we’ve built a rest day into each week and a rest week into each month. Even the most highly trained athletes in the world take days off. So rest, your body needs it!

What happens when I complete the program?

After you complete all three phases, you can continue the program. Just start over at Phase 1. This prevents overtraining and burnout.

Herbalife24FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability on Day 2 Metabolic Workout

April 26th, 2012

 

Phase 1 – Stability – Disc 4 which is a metabolic workout – My review – day 2

Just finished the day 2 metabolic workout and I must say I enjoyed it – it’s very much like low impact aerobics, but the key thing was it was burning fat !  Maybe a bit tame for all you fit people out there but this is only phase 1 and  I know it will get harder as you go though all the 3 phases.

A few stretching exercises at the start of the Herbalife24FIT dvd metabolic workout, then kept up a steady pace going through “fat burning” moves.  Need a solid floor to do your metabolic workout as there is a bit of walking/jogging on the spot, step tapping, knee raising using arms, kicks, footballer player moves,step pushing, push backs and skipping – think that was it !  total workout 30 minutes.

Felt good at the end of it, looking forward to my next Phase 1 Stability dvd – disc 2 – shoulder stabilization.

Herbalife24 FIT DVD Review Phase 1 Stability Week 1

April 25th, 2012

 

Hi All,

I was lucky enough to be able to get hold of the Herbalife24FIT dvd box set before stock ran out very quickly after launch.  Here is my review so far…..

New stocks of the Herbalife24FIT dvds are now available to buy in the USA only – that’s the very latest information that I have !

When the Herbalife24FIT box set arrived I was pretty impressed with it’s packaging and presentation.  Fitness experts Samantha Clayton,Tom Holland and Robert Forster feature on the cover and when you open up the package you’ll find 13 dvds – 12 workouts and 1 introduction dvd,  a workout schedule, a quickstart guide, a fitness guide and a Herbalife24 sports nutrition product guide. 

The dvd’s should be played in order of phase i.e phase 1 stability, phase 2 strength and phase 3 power (in the box set these run from left to right and not downwards). The dvds are for a 24 week program. 

I found it essential to watch the introduction dvd even though I was eager to get started…. as you get to see how to do the warm up stretches for flexibilty which should be done before and after exercise to prevent injury. Samantha, Tom and Robert are great to watch on this dvd, they work really well together and gave very clear instructions on how to do the warm up and getting into the correct position to feel the benefits of the stretch  – this was good for me as sometimes I get the position wrong !  Also the introduction dvd showed the exercises and moves that are performed in the 3 phases of the workout program.

Samantha explained the benefits of the Herbalife24FIT workout:

Phase 1: is for flexibility and strength, to get you stable and to make you a better fat burner.

Phase 2: works on adding the strength component

Phase 3: takes you towards peak fitness by adding power moves

Phase 1 -Stability Day 1 – Disc 1 is all about Spine and Pelvis Stabilization – My review – day 1

I thought I was pretty fit and flexible as I’m a marathon runner and gym junkie, until I started the exercises – but the thing is after time your body’s connective tissue, tendons, ligaments, fascia gets shorter if you’re not stretching properly. My arms and  legs were bit like jelly after finishing as I was using muscles I wouldn’t normally use. This disc ran for approximately1 hour (just guessing here as didn’t time it) –  I know it was longer than normal as it went through the flexibilty(stretching) exercises again and then 30 minutes workout, followed by recommended Herbalife 24 sports nutrition products. Normal timings for the workout dvds are 30 minutes.

Looking forward to tommorows dvd Phase 1 Stability – Day 2 – Disc 4 is called Metabolic 1, will report back.
