The core secret ball is a great alertnative to exercise. I pulled a muscles in my lower back. I hope it wasn't from using the ball. I did find Gunnar does move from one exercise to another to quickly on the Give me 20. He does need to add more variety to his workouts. But overall, I do not think about sending it back and think its was worth the price which was like 10 bucks for the ball and 2 tapes. Good luck.

I love the Core Secrets..I've tried it for three weeks now and I've seen inches come off my arms, abs, and butt. I am so happy with this program. I would recomend it to anyone.

Update on my progress with the Stability Ball and Core Secrets! I still love the AB workout and will incorporate the other total body workouts into my regime soon. The AB assault has reduced my waistline 2 additional inches making a total loss off my waist to be 11 inches! Now I think it is worth it, understand diet is 75% of the battle but why not top off your normal routine with Core Secrets. It is a great change up from the Norm!

I purchased Core Secrets approx 2 weeks ago and after using it one day I had to take a break it worked my glutes and inner thighs out so much. I was amazed I never expected for it to work so well. I give it a A++++ so far so good :)

I love my Core Secrets DVD's! I have been using the Accelerated Training video for 10 weeks and the results have been great! I recently began using the Ab Assault and the Bun Blaster DVD's. I could feel that my muscles had a workout immediatley after completing them and I had muscle soreness the next day! These DVD's are good for the intermediate level exercisers. More advanced people may not like them. You can increase your weights as you become stronger to challenge yourself. You still need to do cardio exercises to burn the fat off the newly toned abs!

I purchased Core Secrets approx. 2 months ago and I absolutely love it. I workout in the morning with free weights, along with Cardio, and at night I get on the ball and follow along with the dvd's. I actually look forward to doing the workout, and can really feel as well as see a difference in my abs, as well as my glutes. I highly recommend this workout.

I thought the tapes were awful. The tape does not include half of the excercises that they show on the commercial. They don't provide any lower body. The give me 20, is so incredibly boring.He repeats the same excercise at the end of the tape, that he did in the beginning. YOu feel like he ran out of things to do, so he just filled some empty time with repetition. He never mentions what size weights people should use. I can't begin to explain how Excited I was when I ordered it and how unbelievably disappointed I was, when I tried it. I'm passionate about excercise and I thought this would be a nice variation, instead it was a big waste of money.

I started Weight Watchers and was losing an average of 1.5 pounds per week. I started adding aerobic activity to my daily routine but did not like lifting weights at the gym so I ordered Core Secrets. I really like the ball, I practice yoga and it's a great tool to have for that as well. I have lost a total of four inches in my waist in the two months that I've been using Core Secrets. I think the combination of aerobics, Core Secrets and a healthy diet works for me. I would recommend using Core Secrets for anyone who wants to begin strength training (use along with aerobics/cardio).

For those that do not feel anything, well you probably are doing it wrong, because I have been working my ABS every other day prior to jumping on the stability ball and putting in the DVD and let me tell you, my ABS are screaming, I love the positions and the wide variety of exercises. It was worth my money and I am getting certified as a personal trainer!

I use both dvd's right after each other. the all is a plus and very fun to work with. i would highly reccomend the core secrets for anyone targeting the butt and thighs.

I absolutely recommend Core Secrets. I started using it over two weeks ago and have already noticed a difference in they way my clothes fit. My favorite video is the Ab Assault and Bun Blaster DVD. Every time I use it I can honestly feel every muscle contracting when I breathe. I give the Core Secrets program 5*****!

I just started Core Secrets this week. I have had the set (Ball, Fundamentals, 25 min, Accelerated Workout, Ab Blaster & Bun Blaster) since November. As you can see I can procrastinate. But, once I watched the Fundamental video (as advised) I thought I could do this. I am not in good shape: 31, smoke and, have gained 60 lbs in last 2 yrs. However, I can do this work out! I feel the burn and use weights with the DVD's. I have done the Fundamental, 25 minute & accelerated workout. I plan on trying the Bun & Ab this week. I would highly recommend this product for others like me out of shape and need something fun to get them to work out. I would rather do these DVD's at home than go to the Fitness Center, walk on a treadmill for 30 mins, jog or even an aerobic class. You can be intimidated in classes or even at the gym but at home there is not the added pressure. I have Taebo, the steel videos, firm etc but this one I really look forward to! So if you out of shape and want something fun and not a hassel to do get on the ball!!

I have been using Core Secrets now for 4 weeks ... & I LOVE it!! I have all 7 DVD's and find myself looking forward to my next workout. I think it's so much fun to workout on the ball. I'm already noticing a difference in the way my clothes fit. Absolutely Worth Every Penny!!

I've had the Core Secrets program for awhile because it appeared so interesting and not just a work-out that's going to help one section of your body. I really try to steer clear of them and find most interest in things that claim to workout your whole body. Well I really do enjoy Core Secrets. I have soooo many workout dvd's/tapes and I keep finding myself pulling out the ball because it's easy, yet challenging at the same time. I'm not a huge fan of Gunnar, though. He almost sounds like he's talking down at you and makes a huge deal out of that Michelle girl who modifies everything and how she can so easily do the real motions. He's not a very comforting trainer, but I still enjoy doing the workout when I don't have to focus on his face!

I just bought this product this week and i love it already. It is a lot better than most methods i've tried. it's only been two days and i can feel my muscle being worked. I love it and i recommend it to people that need a simple exercise regimen to follow along side a good cardio tape.

I received my core secrets ball about a month ago. So far so good. I have lost about three inches and eight pounds, which to me for being the holiday season is awesome. Core Secrets has worked out very well for me especially with my back trouble.

I really like this supplement set of videos to my cardio routine! I thought I had strong abs- but core secrets showed me I could be stronger! I a going on 50 years young and I have had back problems in the past and I also have osteoarthritis of the knees and hips. The tapes have totally made my back problems go away! I have never felt stronger in my core area- and do not fear my back muscles cramping up anymore- I have more range of motion thanks to the exercises! Some of the floor exercises hurt my knees- so I just do more of the arm or stomach exercises while the tape has the standing exercises on. I would definintly say to anyone try the tapes and see how strong you can be!

I've had this product for a few months now, I have all 4 dvds. I will say, it's a pretty easy workout and I'm a beginner/intermediate exerciser. The only thing I actually LOVE about this product is the ball (which I use as a chair) and the ab workout. I believe the ab routine is excellent, I can actually feel my stomach muscles (sounds strange, I know) throughout the day. You know how it is when your body gets use to something it begins to feel easy, that is so not the case with the ab assault video. Each time you do it, it is like the first time.
