Rated 5 out of 5 by SD89 Great results -- exceeded expectations
I have a very busy schedule and do not have time to go to a gym. An extreme workout was not something I was looking for due to the time involved and the intensity. Ten minutes sounded like that would be great if it really worked. And it did. (One routine will actually take about 15 mins w/ the warm-up and cool-down.) The great thing is that if I had more time I could add another 10 minute routine or two routines and do a total of 30 minutes. Doing this workout and following the nutrition guide started giving me results within a couple of weeks. I was looking to lose belly fat and get toned. After 90 days muffin top is gone and I'm definitely more toned and feeling stronger. While there are multiple DVDs and you have to jump around sometimes if you do more than one, it's not that much of a pain. What I do to avoid having the DVDs reset is stop play as soon as it's over. My DVD player will take it to a resume mode and when I start it up again, I just hit menu. It did take a few sessions on some of the workouts to get all the technique right -- I also watched each routine once before trying them. There is a "trainer track" you can listen to for extra pointers which helps. I think you can get out of this what you put into it. If you give your all and work hard, you'll feel the results. I enjoyed the variety of exercises as well and even purchased the upgrade one on ones.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LinzBinz Great if you don't want to push yourself to far!
Tony Horton's 10 minute trainer is nice! It won't get you ripped of course. but it will add some definition. This is a great workout for someone who doesn't have time to go to the gym, or doesn't have enough strength or ability to conquer workouts like P90X or Insanity. I am still a teenager so these were easier for me because I am athletic and have a lot of energy. But anybody looking for a quick somewhat challenging workout I would recommend this!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SkiGirl Great if you are looking for a quick workout.
I love the fact that the workouts can be done in approximately 15 minutes (by the time you wait for the DVD to load & go through the promos and do the warm up and cool down). I have done Insanity and ChaLean Extreme in the past and was tired of spending 40-60 minutes a day to workout. These workouts are over quickly. When I first started, I found it difficult to follow along as the moves change quickly with no explanation before starting them. It would have been nice to have a DVD showing the different moves & explaining how to do each one. I also find that I have to turn up the volume on the tv as Tony Horton speaks very quietly and is hard to hear. I do like that he incorporates a lot of exercises that work the arms and the legs. I have been lifting 3 times a week and doing 10-Minute Trainer on my off days. I feel like this workout is helping maintain what I have accomplished with lifting. So far I have only been doing 1 workout a day. I can see this program maintaining your fitness level after doing Insanity or one of the more difficult programs. I plan on doing Insanity again to achieve a higher fitness level and then using this program to maintain. I was disappointed as I thought that there were 10 different workout programs. Actually, there are 5 workouts and then 5 more of the same workouts with the warm up and cool down added. For anyone looking for a quick workout that will make you sweat, I recommend 10-Minute trainer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Chris C Good, but very limited demographic.
The workouts in this program are effective, don't get me wrong. They're just too congested. Regardless, anyone who commits the time to the program and the diet regimen will see results, as is the case with ANY program.
The problem with this one is that it won't get you into great shape like P90X will. This is strictly for weight loss and management, so you probably won't get really toned unless you perform the exercises multiple times a day. Definitely not for athletes. I think that this program is great for older people who need something to keep active, or people who aren't as physically able to do a longer program.
If you're a younger person who's really looking to get a body, go for a more legitimate program. If you're just a busy person who isn't really interested in all that and just wants to maintain or lose weight for health reasons, or are older/disabled, I'd say go for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikkijo11 First time in my life I've been able to commit!
I LOVE 10-Minute Trainer! I am a single, working mother of two young boys. If I can fit this into my daily routine, then anyone can! It is super easy to follow, time just flies by, and the results are amazing!! In my first 30 days I lost 12 1/2 inches total body!! It is so crazy! So rewarding to see the results. This is the first time in my life I've ever been able to stick with a workout program for longer than 2 weeks. I am currently 6 weeks in and have been able to do it everyday! I love the variety it gives you on doing one, two or three 10-minute workouts each day. I find that the hardest part is starting the workout, and once I get going I don't want to stop! So, I typically do all 3, 10 minute workouts each day. I am hooked! I now believe that I CAN fit exercise into my daily routine! And each week the weight and inches keep coming off!

Rated 3 out of 5 by p9KMK0x Just not for me...
I bought 10-minute trainer as i was looking for a shorter routine to bridge the gap between workout programs. I have done P90X (twice), P90X+, and P90X2 and am currently doing T25 (perfect bridge here). I felt the workouts where pretty lame and appeared to be more catered towards women than men (not trying to be sexest). The switching of dvds in the middle of a workout just kills your momentum and sometimes is your que to just say "the heck with it..." I got the higher end package with all the extra DVDs to expand my workouts on the recommendation of my Team Beachbody coach (glad i did). Some of the workouts were effective in giving you the burn your are looking for (especially in the upperbody routine), but other moves in the total body and cardio routines, for example, made me feel silly. The abs routine was pretty good and the extra One on One routines that come with higher end package definitely kicked your butt. However, It was difficult for me to stick to the schedule as i was so used to an intense routine and schedule it made me slack a little. But, that being said i did not return the items as i did find some value. I will still sometimes suppliment some of these workouts if i literally only 10-minutes to get a workout in or to do a quick 10-miunte workout in the morning just to get you going for the day. So there is some value...i guess.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Arluna3 I get mad just thinking about it!
I never expected to achieve great results in just 10 minutes a day, I read the fine print and I was prepared to do multiple 10 minute workouts a day. Here's the problem, there are three DVDs with multiple workouts on each of them and if you follow the schedule you could be needing all three of the DVDs on any given day. So imagine you've just had Tony Horton kick your butt for 10 minutes, you're dying and ready to do the next work out except first you need to eject the DVD, put in a new DVD, Wait for to load, Watch that stupid promo for the hundredth time about how you should log into wowy.... And if you're set up is like mine you have to bend down to do all this and pray you don't pass out from bending over when your heart rate is through the roof! In a nutshell 10 minutes is really 3-10 minute workouts (for best results) plus a 2 minute warm-up plus a 2 minute cooldown plus all of the time it takes to switch the DVDs in between workouts. Not to mention that there are some workouts (cardio) that you have to do frequently and at just 10 moves in 10 minutes the moves get old really, really fast!! I stuck with it for about three weeks and saw no results! The whole program is just annoying! I did P90X a couple of years ago I absolutely loved it and got great results. Unfortunately I let my results slide and I was looking for a quick-fix, these 10 minute workouts are more trouble than they're worth!! Tony we all know we aren't going to get it done in just 10 minutes a day why not just put together a half hour video that we can actually do?!? Soooo disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5 by TattedMama TERRIBLE!
This DVD routine, was by far, the WORST workout DVD I've ever purchased! There's NO beginning instructions, NO step/move instructions...it just starts, and it's like they expect you to already know the routine! There's also NO instructions on how to use the provided equipment (resistance band, etc...) And in Tony's videos, it's just him and one other female! He doesn't keep me engaged...no enthusiasm! And unlike most other workout DVDs, he doesn't join in during the workout...he mostly just stands there, watching his one, single female example. I WILL BE SENDING THIS BACK FOR A REFUND! Extremely disappointed.

by AngiS LOVE the results, was so surprised!
I bought this program on impulse because honestly the TV add caught my attention "Only 10 minutes" that's all I heard. I said to myself "I can give up 10 minutes" thinking if i didn't like it I would return it. Well to my surprise I so love this program! am a 50 year female, never ever worked out a day in my life! I've struggled with weight my entire life, even had the gastric by pass 30 years ago, but wait, they forgot to tell me to exercise (not like it is now). Anyways, I had a hip replaced last year and really needed to build some strength back in my right leg, that was my main objective. I started the program on April 28th and committed to every day for 2 months. It was the same day I started training a new class at work, knowing that when they graduated, my 2 months were up . So every day I would put a big X on the calendar and measure my results(ya I missed a few days, more like 10 days during this time frame). My team at worked watched me melt away right before their very eyes. It wasn't about weight loss this time, it was about strengthening my leg. Well, my results are absolutely amazing....10 lbs and 18 inches....If I can do this, you can too! I feel so good about myself and my accomplishments and I get so many compliments every day, its the best I've felt in years. Thank you for having this program out there TONY/Beach body.
