Bought this book after reading an article on the daily mail online. Such good advice and workouts I am very happy. Really feel like these workouts are worth doing.

I was part of the original 12 week programme and was initially a long distance running, long gym session kind of person - this programme is a revolution - I now train less in terms of hours, put more effort in, get more enjoyment out and am the fittest, healthiest and strongest I have ever been ( that includes marathons, a Sahara trek and a Kilimanjaro trek)! Try it for yourself!

Fitness plan is easy to follow. Eating advice is grown up and sensible. Great back up on a Facebook group so that there's always a bit of extra advice from people who have actually done the whole 12 weeks and seen the results, and Julia herself contributes aswell. Would recommend downloading if you have a kindle app on your phone if you use the gym.

bought the book, worked the book and the book works even when you're starting from scratch. Just about to start phase 2 and can't say enough good about it

I came across this a few weeks ago when a friend mentioned it in a Facebook comment. I looked it up, found Facebook group & asked if I could join the group. I have been welcomed with open arms. So much so I bought the book.

I've had health issues and over the years picked up different exercise programmes - gym, classes, running, swimming new fitness crazes you name it. The only thing I've stuck with is running but I am constantly getting injured. I joined a boot camp which I love but work and study means I struggle to get there often enough.

So, to hearing about this book, I bought it and started 4 weeks ago. I class myself as fairly fit but this is pushing me to another level mainly that for the first time I can train consistently, something I've always struggled with. I travel for work which normally scuppers any plan I have but with this I can do them wherever I am & just adapt the exercises to suit, using resistance bands instead of weights.

The plan isn't a fad, it's based on good clean eating, with a sensible approach to getting to this stage, exercises aren't new they're things most of us are familiar with, squats, lunges, press ups, burpees, planks, crunches to name but a few but they are put together in an easy to follow programme which it's proved gives fantastic results.

The Facebook page is the most friendly and supportive group I've come across, Julia herself pops by with offer of help and support which is something I've not known before.

All in all I'm so glad I heard of this revolution! If you're thinking about it just do it you don't need much equipment or an expensive gym membership it can all be done at home (or wherever you find yourself) you've got nothing to lose except maybe a few inches.

I was initially put off this book because it seemed to advocate cutting out distance running, which I enjoy doing both for itself and for the social aspects. I bought the Kindle version because I wanted to try something different, and because I've been struggling with a growing muffin top. I've tended to incorporate cross-training into my exercise plan (my marathon PB is off 30 miles a week, rather than the usual 40-50), but it's tended to be using resistance machines, and I've never really enjoyed using weights.

I'm a woman in her early 40s with a BMI of around 21 (I'm tall but a small build). I'm halfway through the 12 weeks. I've used the exercises alongside 3 training runs a week (intervals, tempo and a long run of up to 13 miles) and although I haven't lost much weight, my body shape has changed, and my stomach is a lot flatter. I've dropped about 2% body fat. Where I've really seen results, though, is in my running: I've knocked a minute and a half off my parkrun (5k time trial) time, for my first PB in nearly 2 years, and feel a lot stronger. It's a real breakthrough for me after feeling 'stuck' for a long time.

I like that the exercises don't take too long to do (20-30 minutes), and that you can increase the difficulty from quite a basic level. I've tried PX90 in the past, and found it was geared towards men because of the level of upper body strength demanded, and found it repetitive and a bit dull. This is much more practical for me. I do most of the workouts at home, although I do have a gym membership, but already had a cross-trainer, dumbells and a Swiss ball. I'm going to have to switch to the gym because I need heavier weights due to the progress I've made, and having the Kindle version means I can easily take it along on my ipod.

If you're looking for a fitness plan that gets results then you've found it here. It's a 12 week plan made up of a mixture of high intensity workouts and weight workouts that take between 20 and 60 minutes to do. It's not difficult but you really do push yourself and you lose inches all over.
The book is really well laid out with lots of clear pictures and tips about how to do the exercises and you can do it all at home - so great for the likes of me with young children. You need some fairly basic equipment (a mat, an exercise ball and some weights - which you can get here on Amazon for approx. £50).
I followed the programme last year with Julia. Previous to this I used to run to keep fit and whilst running took weight off in the beginning, then I just plateaued. This has got rid of the "mummy tummy" that I'd been carrying around for ages, it's strengthened my back and I've dropped from a size 12 to a 10 (losing 6 inches from my waist alone). You can see more about my results at [...] and follow my progress as I start it again later this month.
The food advice is sensible - although there's no plan/recipes - it's all about eating healthy protein and unprocessed carbs. It's important to make the food changes and drink lots of water too - you'll burn fat much quicker that way.
Julia has also set up a face book page for followers to support each other and get advice which is really useful.
