I went on the search for the best at home workout program for women, and came across two popular series: Tone It Up and Kayla Itsines. Since I wasn’t the right guinea pig for these workouts, I asked my wife to try them both for twelve weeks apiece and give me her thoughts and to determine a winner. I even jumped in for a few workouts and can honestly say that both Tone It Up and Kayla Itsines workouts were no joke! In the end, my wife came away with a clear cut winner for which workouts were most effective for her — as well as came away with some amazing results we’re BOTH happy with!
For those who are fans of Hammer and Chisel’s Sagi Kalev comes Body Beast, Beachbody’s 90 day weight lifting video series. I wasn’t sure how much I’d like this program because, I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of lifting heavy weight in general and prefer the body weight movements offered with workouts like P90X. What I found was something unexpected, as I began looking forward to Sagi’s entertaining training style (and the weight training workouts as well!).
Not only have we tried just about every workout series in the Beachbody On Demand list of available programs, but we’ve reached out to others who have done the same to get a feel for whether our take was in line with the general opinion of other Beachbody users. We have surveyed many users to get a collective take on Beachbody On Demand reviews to give you the definitive guide to the best programs to get you toned up, as well as which ones to avoid.
P90X3 really is the gold standard for at home workouts that appeal to anyone and work for everyone. Below, we breakdown what makes P90X3 work so well, as well as additional detail about each exercise, including our favorites.
The two biggest names in the Home Fitness workout world are P90X and Insanity, and each line’s best products are P90X3 and Insanity Max 30. It’s only fitting that we pit these two programs up against each other to determine which can lay claim to the best home fitness workout series on the market. We analyzed everything from cost to intensity of the workout, as well as effectiveness and which program would be better suited to you, the person doing the workouts. In the end, both P90X3 and Insanity Max 30 have a lot in common, but one has just enough edge over the other to be considered the best!
Balance discs and BOSU balls are both designed to improve stability, flexibility, and add variety to your workouts. Both products are made of rubber and are filled with air, creating an unstable surface. These stability trainers can be incorporated into your workouts, or to daily habits like sitting or standing and engage your stabilizer muscles. Both products are effective, but the BOSU ball offers more stability and is a better-made product that you should have as a tool in your home fitness arsenal.
