Beachbody Focus T25 Review
Beachbody Focus T25 Claims
They make a lot of claims about the results you will get when you purchase the T25 workout.
“Ready for a shock? Turns out longer workouts don’t always deliver better results. In fact, major studies show that the first 30 minutes of exercise can be every bit as effective at burning fat as workouts that are twice as long. So when you do a FOCUS T25 workout, you can get an hour’s worth of results…but you’ll be getting it done in only 25 minutes—so you stay within that optimal, fat-burning zone.”  “It’s a full-body workout in 25 minutes. With zero rest. Focus Interval Training works every muscle group in your body—one after the other—then it works it again. It’s short. It’s sweaty. But after 25 minutes, it’s done. No BS…just amazing results.” 
Many of the claims are focused on the Focus T25 schedule which only has you working out for 25 minutes per day. That is the main sales pitch to the program and it appeals to folks who want to get into shape but quite simply do not have the time to spend hours at the gym. They claim,
“I’ve got a 25-minute workout that pushes you as hard—or harder—than any hour-long workout you’ve ever done. A workout that will have you dripping with sweat after 10 minutes, and totally done in 25.” 
When looking into one of the studies done on high interval training versus steady training, the results were interesting. According to Dr Michael Mosley,
“Mosley explained that the key to effective, high intensity workouts are doing short bursts of intense exercise. He said they seem to be much more effective for weight loss as well as for insulin resistance. ”Science shows that what’s beneficial about exercise is the stress and intensity of the workout, not the duration, Mosley said. The benefits of this type of exercise regimen include reduced risks of cancer and diabetes.” 
This is parallel to what the Focus T25 program offers, as there are a variety of shorter yet high intensity workouts to follow which has been said to help slim down your trouble areas and get you in better shape overall.back to menu ↑
What Does The Schedule Look Like?
Now that you know everything that is going to come in the package, what will your week look like? It will first start off in the Alpha Phase, which consist of the first set of DVD’s mentioned above. The days are not going to be easy, and in total the Alpha Phase lasts for 25 days, and the Beta Phase lasts for 25 days. There are a total of 10 weeks and you will start by following the schedule to the best of your ability. It is very programmed, so it takes the thinking out of the equation if you are tired of putting together your own workout schedules.

Do be mindful that there are modified workouts inside of each day, so if you are not able to do the entire workout with the group you are following, there usually is a modified version to watch. It is usually one person who is doing the modified version of the workout, and they frequently scan the camera over to them so you are aware of how to properly do each set. If you are not feeling ready to jump into the Beta, there is nothing wrong with doing the Alpha workouts for another 5 weeks, it just depends on how long you want to take to complete the entire program.back to menu ↑
Word On The Street About Beachbody Focus T25
After looking at the pricing and the schedule and realizing there is a 60 day money back guarantee, it does not look all that grim for the potential customer. That is plenty of time to try out the program to see if it is going to work for you or not. Beachbody is known for the great customer service, so if you decide to purchase it right from the website, you will not be tricked out of any money as long as you know their policies up front. It is not one of those workouts where you need to get into shape before starting it (like Insanity), but it will require you to get out of your comfort zone. So what did the customers who bought the Focus T25 program have to say about it? The Focus T25 results and the Focus T25 reviews were rather parallel to each other for those who enjoyed it and stuck with it. Mike H. (2015, 4 stars),
The Pros and Cons
As with anything, there are going to be pros and cons, and so I wanted to label out a few pros and cons of trying this program out. To be clear, there is no Focus T25 download and it comes in a physical package.
When you are getting started with this program some positives are the exercise factor, and how good it is going to be for your body overall. There is nothing wrong with getting into a good, solid routine when it comes to your physical fitness. Another pro is the fact that the workouts are only 25 minutes long, which gives you time for other things in your life after work and working out! Many people just purchase this program for the simple reason that the workouts are short and sweet even though they are tough too. Another pro is the cost associated with what you are actually getting. When I purchased the workout, it was a one time purchase minus the supplements you are enticed to get on autoship. If you decline those, then you have those DVD’s for life and you can restart at any time. The program, however, is meant to last for 10 weeks in total.
There was word about the program being hard on the joints with a lot of jumping around involved. Some people even said it felt like they were dancing, which was an interesting comment. If you have hip or knee problems you might be more sore than you anticipated and not for good reasons. All of the jumping and pounding really can have a negative long term effect on the body, but this type of exercise is destined for it. Because there are no weights involved, there is a lot of body weight type work to be done, which in turn can leave strain on your ligaments and joints. The pushing of the shakes and supplements are also annoying at best, and you will hear about how great they are over and over again. There are not many more cons to be aware of, but the program is definitely not for everyone that is for sure!back to menu ↑
The Bottom Line: Is The Beachbody Focus T25 Worth A Try?
Yes. There is nothing risky about trying this Beachbody workout program out after looking at the facts, and the customer satisfaction rating was high overall. The price for this program is solid and you are getting your money’s worth of workouts. I like that a schedule is given to you when you purchase because it is nice to know exactly which DVD to put in. It takes the thinking out of working out, and just let’s you get on with a good sweat, which is ultimately the end goal. Overall, this program has gotten a lot of good reviews from the people who have purchased and completed it. There is not a lot of risk involved, and the customer service that Beachbody offers is known to be great. Whether you are looking to get into the best shape of your life or just simply make time to get a sweat in each day, this program will be a good fit.
