Editorial Reviews:

Exercise is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to total wellness. Those who focus on the aesthetics of muscle are missing the picture. The System is a lifestyle. In the SEALs they asked us not to settle for normal. If we did then we did not belong there. What this did is put us in a mindset to set higher standards. I am asking you, not to accept normal. The System is designed to help you achieve strength, flexibility, speed, lean muscle mass and endurance. Gym junkies can be impressive for 30 second burst of energy but beyond that they are useless. Majority of gym junkies only last 10 minutes in my exercise class. Whereas I can take someone from my class who can last for 60 minutes yet they still have incredible 30 second burst of energy. We are looking for functional muscles with a purpose. System 1 is a 30 to 60 day program that requires 45 minutes a day, 3 days a week. Purchase System 1 and get ready to change your life. One of the highest quality exercise DVD's. 5 camera shots while overlooking incredible Zion's National Park.

System 1 - three day a week program which means there is no time to put my five day a week routine. You will get a great work out with System 1 while preparing your technique and strength for System 2. System 2 will be our full run with me if you can 5 day a week program. Sorry about the delay to my long time customers, I fought past an illness that stripped me of weight and strength which you can note in System 1. I am back and stronger than ever and will film in Nov.

Summary: Good basic workout
Comment: This workourt is a good basic workout for people who haven't been exercising regularly. A bit about me: I have been a cyclist for years but found myself lacking core strength and upper body strength. I picked up on the Navy Seals a few years ago, and figured if they get in shape doing basic calesthenics, then it is good enough for me also. I also have Mark's book on Navy Seal Workout book, along with Stew Smith's books.

This DVD is good because it has beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. The only thing this DVD lacks is pullups, and it is for that it loses one star. I am looking forward to System 2 ( Mark, I hope you are reading.) One of the things I like is you can skip to the next scene to bypass workouts that are too easy or advanced for you.

Overall, good solid workout is obtained and I feel the workout for days afterwords. I will keep using this DVD for a long time. I would highly recommend this anyone, man or woman, boy or girl. You have good control over the workout you get from the DVD.

Summary: Great NO-EQUIPMENT strength workout
Comment: I am a fairly fit female and I am living in a remote area of Europe for a year--no gyms, living out of a suitcase and a lap-top bag, and so my workouts are pretty much limited to things that require minimal equipment. This DVD is a fabulous find for that. Sure, all of these exercises are ones I've done before (lunges, tricep dips, mountain climbers, push-ups, sit-ups, wall-squats), but if they weren't all put together on the DVD with someone TELLING me what to do and saying motivating things, I wouldn't do the strength training half as often.
There is a short aerobic warmup and some stretching--I usually do this after a walk or light jog, otherwise the warmup would be a bit short for my tastes. Then they move right into strength moves. The program has excellent descriptions of the moves separate from the exercise portion of the DVD, so watch that before your first use and maybe refresh yourself once or twice to make the moves most effective. The first exercises are chest, back, shoulders focused, with legs and abs later on. The set-up is great: there are three levels, with more repetitions at each level. If you don't fast forward, the lower levels thus have more rest time as well. Being a female, I use the extra rest time on the upper body things (although the woman who demonstrates the intermediate level never looks too tired,so that is good motivation...) but not the extra rest time on the lower body and abs. So you can tailor your workout a bit--you advance to the next level for each exercise individually, so if you are 'unevenly' strong like me, you aren't stuck at one level for all.
There is something very motivating but at the same time reasonable about the instructor's voice and personality. He is positive without being perky or annoying, and he really does seem to want you to succeed. His talking gets a little old the more times you view it, but surprisingly I still find that certain things he says motivate me to try a few more reps.
This is a very solid workout, with good safe instructions and a motivating instructor and demonstrators. It can be done with a minimum of equipment--you need a wall, and somewhere to do chest dips (chairs, solid bedframe, rock). Other than that, you are good to go. Other than the sorta short warmup, I have nothing but praise for this system. I have done a lot of workout DVDs, classes, and I have done team and individual sports in high school, college, and beyond, and I feel like this is challenging but not unreasonable for anyone to do. True beginners or those who have let their fitness slide for quite a while might find themselves struggling even to do the beginner level at first, but stick with it and don't worry if you can't do all the reps at first--these are basic, proven exercises and you WILL increase your strength and stamina if you keep at it.

Summary: Excellent!
Comment: This video is super. It is basic, with no frills and consists of simple exercises. I am 54 years old, already in fairly good shape and am at the beginner level for many of the exercises and interim for the rest. Once, I reach the advanced levels, I should be in outstanding shape! If you are looking for an exercise video without silly music or people in fancy outfits (although the folks in this one do wear fatigues,)the need for extra eqpt, and are only interested in getting into good shape (or maintaining), I highly recommend this video. After a short time, I will have the routines memorized and have a workout for the rest of my life.

Hey, it is only $15, buy it!

Summary: One of my favorites!
Comment: I bought this hoping it would be a good DVD workout and I can tell you it was! I love this DVD and use it quite often. This really is a full body workout and I wish he would come out with the next system. If you do get this DVD and really use it, you will get in shape. It is easy to follow and he explains everything extremely well.

Another nice thing about this video is that you do not need any weights of any kind which means if you are on the road traveling, when you get to your hotel at night pop this into your laptops dvd player and go at it. You ca do this workout just about anywhere. I highly recommend it.

An excellent one to add to the collection!

Summary: Fair
Comment: I had purchased this video because nothing else seemed stimulating.....and being prior military, I figured it would be what I was accustomed to. I have found myself bored with it after 2 weeks. I took things from it that I wanted, and turn on my own music to work out.

It DOES cause a good burn, and make you work....good to start out with, and get into a routine with. It did not, however, keep my attention.
