The Montenegro Method Review and Giveaway



So I’m trying to spend more of my time working out, eating right and shedding some pounds so I’m always on the lookout for new exciting workouts and diet plans that work and are interesting, that don’t cause me to become board and to just give up. So when I stumbled upon The Montenegro Method I immediately wanted to try this workout because not only did it say 21 Minutes To a long, lean, athletic boy, 21 days to a healthier life but it looked like a workout that would keep me interested and involved, so when I found out that I was going to be able to do a review and giveaway on The Montenegro Method Training DVD System I was beyond excited!

About The Montenegro Method (Taken From Website):

The Montenegro Method fuses fitness, sports and science to create high-intensity workouts that will redefine your body. This complex training program uses plyometrics and resistance exercises guaranteed to deliver the most efficient workout with the greatest results. Build lean muscle and speed up your metabolism to burn calories even when you're not working out.

The Montenegro Method is based on the principles of overload and progression. In practice, this means pushing your body harder each time you work out. The workouts build on each other and your body is challenged as you continue to grow stronger.

The Montenegro Method incorporates all aspects of a comprehensive training program including endurance, strength, agility, power and flexibility and utilizes a special combination of circuit training, giant sets and tri-sets. The exercises are organized in a progressive manner so your workout can build as your fitness improves – and you can continue to achieve results over time.

The DVD series is a collection of fast-paced, 21-minute, high-intensity cardio and strength training workouts that focus on more than one muscle group at a time. The routines are appropriate for all fitness levels and can be completed with or without equipment. With the Montenegro Method DVD Series, Marta will guide you to victory and better fitness in 21 days.

The Montenegro Method will help you lose weight, gain muscle tone and strength, and have more energy.

How does the Montenegro Method work to accelerate fat burning?
The secret to the Montenegro Method is in the post-workout metabolic response that tells the body to keep burning calories after your workout.

When you build lean muscle, you create more mitochondria in your body. The more mitochondria we have, the easier it is to lose weight because over time, more calories will be burned by these cells. The average person, through proper strength training and a sensible diet can add enough muscle to burn an additional 3,500 calories (1 pound) per week.

My Thoughts:

I was sent the a wonderful pack that included the complete Montenegro Method DVD Workout Series and Diet Guide along with an awesome gym bag, scarf, t-shirt, water bottle, chip clip, hand weight stress reliever, drawstring bag, note pad and business card holder to review and I have to say it was so much more than I had expected and I couldn’t wait to give the DVD’s a go.

I got started the very next day with the workouts and I’ve been doing them now for a few weeks and I have to say that I am completely impressed with the results, though after the first workout with the endurance DVD I didn’t think I was going to make it through the day I was very sore and it hurt to sit, stand and lye down but I kept up working with the DVD and within a few days it was nothing to get through the DVD and the results are amazing! In addition to using these DVD’s daily or every other day I have been eating a more strict diet and I’ve began to see some results like a loss of oh say around 7 lbs so I’m thrilled and will be using these DVD’s for quite some time!

Not only are these DVD’s challenging but Marta is a wonderful coach and really encourages you to keep up the good work and she really lets you know what body parts you are working on during each of the workouts and she really explains how to do each pose and move perfectly and unlike other DVD’s I’ve tried in the past I feel that she is really there for you not just to be on TV, I feel she really wants to help ME get into shape and to do the moves and workouts right!

Bottom Line:

Not only do these DVD’s really challenge you, they also products results quickly…not going to say easy because when you first start it really tested my will power and strength but I’m so happy I continued on with the system and I couldn’t be happier with the results!

If you are looking for a real workout with real results I think you should definitely check out The Montenegro Method for youself!
