Elements Workout Video Review

| September 22, 2016 | 2 Comments

I really like dynamic exercise like kettlebells. I also like low-weight / body-weight exercise routines like P90X3. Over the last 2 years I’ve come to enjoy balance and core strength training, like yoga and Pilates.

I sit a lot for my day job, and I also have a lot of stuff on my plate. I have to be honest about a program I can adhere to. I have many ways of talking myself out of a work out, so something that’s planned, consistent, and short (45 minutes or less) is ideal.

I wanted to give the Elements program by GMB a try. It’s 7-weeks long, 42-sessions, and $75. All body weight, all at home, with a mix of mobility exercises and “animal movements” that all can be modified to be more or less difficult.

Here’s my review.

I’d recommend Elements to people who are just starting out their fight-focused fitness journey, or people who need more mobility and balance work. If you are already doing just about any workout routine, I’d recommend continuing to do some / all of it while you do the Elements routine. I don’t think anyone in a standardized fitness program will find Elements challenging enough on its own.

$75 is a bit steep for the content; I’d rather see $50.

    I really enjoyed your review and how thorough you were. I had a couple of questions as I am on quest for the holy grail of injury/arthritis recovery. Both my right hip and shoulder (complicated by surgery) have advanced stages of arthritis with limited mobility and often alot of pain You mentioned that this program really helped your mobility in those two areas so now it is $90 to buy it and I just wondered if you thought it would be useful to a guy like me. I was powerlifting for a while until everything got way worse so I’m trying to get mobility..balance…movement going before I worry too much about strength. I really appreciate you’re response. Thx.
