Customer ReviewsThe Hard to Believe Fat Loss Story of a Formerly Fat, Lethargic and Out of Shape Dad and Busy Exec
by Mikey AndThomas here and I was formerly out of shape dad and busy executive. Warning this is going to be a long review because these workouts have changed my life, maybe even saved my life. I first met Mike a CKO Kickboxing I moved and started using the 1 Hour Heavy Bag Workout and Power Striking. I'd like to share with you how I went from being tired, out of shape and miserable to becoming a lean, energetic and a much happier, much more optimistic guy; all with just a very small time commitment and a few small changes to my lifestyle. I am sharing my story because I realized that I'm just like most people out there. You see, I used to be one of the millions of people running an ultra-busy life with a ton of responsibilities and no time to workout. My schedule was crazy! Between work, my family and all my other responsibilities, there was absolutely no way I can commit any time to exercise (or so I thought at the time). My "me time" had become practically nil and as I was getting older, my waistline was getting bigger and my energy was disappearing. Time to workout? HA! I didn't have time to read the daily paper, forget about working out! Like most people, finding the time to work out was low on my priority list, but only because I felt like I couldn't fit it into my busy schedule. I just couldn't imagine spending hours a week working out. No way. I felt like I just didn't have the time. Not only that, but thinking that I had to spend hours a week at the gym just completely demotivated me. Then one day, I had decided to get on the scale. What happened next was....well what happened next changed the rest of my life. When I got on the scale, the number on the scale was the highest it's ever been. I weighed more then I ever weighed in my life. Not only that, but I went from a 31" waist to a 37" waist. I was disgusted. I swore I was going to do something about it. I walked into the doors on CKO in the worst shape of my life. Mike changed my life no BS. When I had to move for work, I was devastated, I really was. So I got a heavy bag and hung it in my basement, I started use the one hour heavy bag workout. I realized I stumbled upon gold. The workout put my in the zone. Now I have the Complete Series and I have been able to workout when I travel. It's amazing and simple. I wouldn't take the time to write this review if it wasn't. I love this. Truth me get it!
I'm a former Power Striking junkie.
by SamlonielThat program literally changed my life and got me into the best shape of my life, even at 30 years old. So I was pumped when I saw this one coming down the pike. This is all boxing, kickboxing, cross fit, floor exercises using your body weight with lots of plyometric and isometic exercises, cardio and core exercise that will work you - hard. And then it will work your core even more. Its primary focus is the core. And it will get you into the best shape of your life. I now do it several times a week, when time permits. I can tell you this, though: I do the Plyometric workout from P90X when I need an easy day. My leg strength, especially the explosive kind, has increased tenfold. And my cardio is through the roof. But this will kick your a** no matter what kind of shape you are in. Breathing is key. Drink lots of water. And move at your own pace. People commented on my weight loss, even though I wasn't trying to lose weight. I just couldn't eat enough food. Your food intake will determine your results. So I shrank but, in many ways, I was stronger than ever. Size doesn't always equal strength. You will notice your body change, your core will be the strongest it's ever been and you will be in incredible shape, even if you only do the program at half the intensity. I give it a thumbs up
I never thought I could get this lean
by BigDonfryerOverall, I am very happy with the intensity of this workout. I started with Power Striking, which I also like a lot. I was getting stronger. I switched to The Complete Series, and within a week I noticed a difference in how my clothes were fitting. My fat loss journey started and never stopped. I never thought I could get this lean. This series made it happen, mainly because I could do it anywhere.
