    Zero visible results

    I started with A Little Obsessed, and now I’m at Day 35 and have decided to quit. I have been following everything religiously, and notice no visible results except that my legs maybe look a little more toned - and only to me! No one close to me can tell that I have been working out so hard and eating so well. I weighed myself a week ago and I have GAINED weight since starting. I feel stronger and can do more with weights, but I’m so disappointed with my visible results that I’m going to change programs. We all workout to feel better, but if the visible results don’t follow, it just doesn’t stick.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Workouts too long

    I love all the beach body workouts, or so I thought...I am an insanity instructor so I do love a workout that pushes me to my limits. However, I think the workouts are too long at approx an hour for each give or take a workout. If we are to believe the other beach body instructors we don’t need to be working out for that long each time to see results, and in my experience that is true. I found the workouts repetitive and there isn’t any music, I got really bored and demotivated to finish the workouts.

    If this is your thing then it’s perfect, you will see results but you can get them from a combination of other shorter workouts. Autumn is a fantastic instructor, this wasn’t for me.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    I’ve been a fitness enthusiast for close to 10 years, having done many at home programs and worked with personal trainers in the gym. I’m at Day 54 of 80 Day Obsession and felt compelled to write a review.

    As other reviewers pointed out to the cons of this program, I 100% agree. This is not for beginners and even the modifier needs to be modified for those who have injuries, especially knees. You need to have some experience to quickly replace some moves with those that work similar muscle groups so you don’t aggravate whatever injuries you have. The transitions between exercises are quick and often not prompted for proper form until sometimes the second round. Again, you need to know what you’re doing otherwise you will injure yourself. Lastly, the constant chatter and laughter between the cast are extremely distracting. I understand they want to keep it fun and upbeat but this is way overboard. I’m constantly losing count and getting frustrated with the banter. I’m committed to finishing what I started but at this point it’s "80 Day Annoying" for me.

    Beware

    You are told by the coaches that “there are 80 different workouts." So far, this is a lie. We finished the first week and when I went to preview the second week, each day has the same moves, you simply increase reps. I feel like I was misled by my coach. The timed nutrition is difficult to follow, unless you don’t work. I am very upset at how misleading this program is.

    Biggest Beachbody dud ever

    First off, we were all lied to. We were told that this would be 80 days of 80 different workouts. This is a flat out lie. There are truly only 3 weeks worth of workouts. The rest of the time is just changing the number of reps of those workouts. This was false marketing and a major disappointment. You have to do the exact same moves for a month, before moving onto the next month’s moves.

    Second, Autumn is unbearably obnoxious. You would think that a high-profile Beachbody trainer, given the unique opportunity to provide the longest live-format workout program on the Beachbody On Demand platform, would take this task seriously. Quite the contrary: she laughs and jokes with the cast and crew so often that she forgets what move she is on and what rep number she is on in every video. There are so many times throughout the entire program that she is giggling so much about stupid inside jokes with her cast and crew, that she messes up the pacing of the workout and inserts an inappropriate laugh break into the video.

    Yet, when you absolutely need a break from a hard move, she moves on so quickly that you have to pause the video to grab appropriate equipment for the next move. Her pacing is nonsensical. There is no rhythm of sets with defined breaks. No, it’s laugh breaks or no breaks at all. It’s a waste of time.

    Not to mention that her constant horsing around is utterly distracting from the workout. How can someone perform the hard moves, be motivated to keep going, and feel confident about achieving progress, when Autumn can’t even take her own workout seriously? Let me get this straight. The viewer/customer is NOT in on the inside jokes, nor are they funny when she tries to explain to the camera, nor should we even be joking when there is a hard workout to be done.

    Speaking of hard workouts, an unfocused, clownish trainer is NOT the personality type you need when doing compound movements with weights, where an injury is a big risk. There are infinite tips that an experienced trainer can give you regarding form for each move. Well, instead of helping you with form to prevent injury, Autumn is laughing up a storm and asking a crew member to pick up her dumbbell for her. Yeah, really motivating.

    Because of her complete inattention to pacing, form, and proper breaks, you feel one of two ways after each workout: 1) overtrained and extremely fatigued, or 2) bored and not having worked up a sweat at all.

    After the first month, I had to start muting the audio and playing music instead, to avoid her cringe-worthy, unwelcome jokes. This didn’t mean that I was spared the laughing fit breaks, though; I only was spared having to hear the lame jokes. After the second month, a couple of weeks into phase 3, she managed to penetrate through the muted audio to finally execute the biggest dealbreaker ever: she began joking around and doing inappropriate moves onscreen. I did not pay a lot of money on BOD, Beachbody equipment, Shakeology bundles, and dumbbells to watch my trainer spank the air as if there was a butt in front of her and do other suggestive moves onscreen.

    This was the last straw for me. I quit the program at Day 60 and immediately segwayed into the Insanity program. I am so much happier with Shaun T as a trainer. He gives timed breaks, is motivating, talks about form nonstop, and gives tips on how to modify or get more out of your workout. Because of this, I am getting quicker results. He makes Autumn look like a joke.

    I absolutely do not recommend 80 Day Obsession for anyone. It is a waste of time, and you can spend 80 days or more doing another workout with a trainer who actually takes exercise seriously. Or you could even go to a gym and do your own workout and take your own self seriously.

    I would also like to mention that this program doesn’t even work for weight loss or visible toning. I was in an accountability group on Facebook with hundreds of other people doing 80 Day Obsession. We were not even told how the structure of the program would help with weight loss by the coaches in the group. We were all just told to “trust the process,” over and over and over. Dozens of women who followed the program and nutrition to a T (at 100% compliance, with no cheating, like I did) were frustrated for TWO MONTHS (mind you, this is a 3-month program) by actual weight GAIN and no change in clothing fit. It was then that we were told that we would “shred” in month 3. What a joke. Phase 3 doesn’t even make you break a sweat. I sweated more doing Insanity’s first workout than any 80 Day Obsession video, including the phase 3 videos.

    I wasted my time with 80 Day Obsession. I would be at my goal by now if I had just started (and completed) Insanity or my own gym routine instead.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
