Kayla Itsines: Sweat with Kayla Program Review
Kayla Itsines has brought out another program Sweat with Kayla; today I am going to share you with you my review of this program.
If you are familiar with Kayla’s Bikini Body Guide then you know her program works. I can say that Sweat with Kayla also works. There is no question there about if it works, it does work.
However, before you rush off to buy it keep reading and learn the disappointing truth of the Sweat with Kayla program.
The cost like the Bikini Body Guide is expensive, at $19.99 a month. That’s right a month. You may not have that in your budget or you may need to reduce the number of coffee or lattes bought each week, the number of lunches eaten out, etc. and then you could fit it in your budget but is it really worth it?
I am one of those people who is cheap, yes I admit it I am cheap when it comes to spending money for a gym membership each month or yearly for that matter. Especially when it comes to fitness, there are too many free things you can do to justify spending money on fitness memberships and honestly Sweat with Kayla is just that.. an online membership for exercise.
So when it comes to grades cost is a huge factor for me. This monthly charge is a huge downer in the overall grading of the program. This portion gets a D minus. Far too many of us just do not have the budget to allow us to spend $19.99 a month of exercises that we can take with us anywhere on our mobile phone.
What is new in this program?
What exactly is new in this program “Sweat with Kayla”? The packaging is new it is on a mobile platform.
What else is new? It costs more. In fact $240.00 a year compared to around $210 for her BBG (Bikini Body Guide).
What about new exercises? Nope nothing new there compared to the BBG the exercises are still the same.
Is the nutrition new or updated? No that hasn’t changed either there is nothing new or updated with that information.
So what exactly is new?? The packaging, that seems to be it; it is the old BBG repacked for the mobile platform.
The grade on this portion for me is a big F. In my opinion if you are going to repackage the old to sell as new, then at least add the “new” in terms of value with new exercises some updated information on nutrition and health not just package it for mobile applications.
The disappointing truth
The disappointing truth is if you already own Bikini Body Guide, you already have Sweat with Kayla. This is not anything new, it is the Bikini Body Guide repackaged for the mobile platform.
The only new thing with this program is the packaging. The only value you get with this is that it is mobile. You can take it with you anywhere you go BUT are you going to stop in the middle of the supermarket and work out? How about the Movie Theater or dinner? I can understand your lunch break at work but is there room for you to exercise and what about a shower after you become all hot, sweaty, and stinky? Do your coworkers want to smell you the rest of the day? Just saying… a little common sense can save you a ton of money. Unless you are going on vacation or a business trip why would you need to take it with you everywhere you go?
If you have another $240.00 a year to throw away and don’t mind getting the same information and exercise plan repackaged for the mobile platform then by all means purchase Sweat with Kayla. I don’t know too many people who can afford to pay for nothing more than a switch of platforms or after some logical thought would want too.
Is there a better alternative?
Ok so you are now thinking “well if there is a better alternative then by all means let’s hear it”. It just so happens that there is a better alternative and it is MUCH cheaper and it too is mobile ( again not sure why other than vacation or business trip this should matter).
Well what is it you ask? The answer is Jen Ferruggia Bikini Body Workouts. The Bikini Body Workout by Jen works just as well as Sweat with Kayla at a much lower cost. There is also a 60 day money back guarantee and again it too is mobile.
What you get with Jen Ferruggia:
- Online Instructional Exercise Videos – she will show you how to do the exercises correctly.
- Interactive Workout Guide – work out along with Jen in the interactive workout guide.
- Nutrition Guide – A good guide for nutrition and healthy eating while working out and losing weight.
- Supplement List –this is optional, you can take the supplements, you can purchase the cheaper ones or you do not have to take them at all.
- Comprehensive Shopping List – this will help you make better choices in the grocery store.
- 21-Day Booty Blast – the extra booty blast will shape your bum like no other.
The cost a very low $39.95 – just once! Not a month. Your savings $200.00 which you can use to buy food, supplements, and some cheap equipment that may be needed for the program.
Jen’s program gets a solid A from me for the fact that it provides value with the nutrition guide, supplement list, shopping list, the extra 21 day booty blast, and the exercises that WORK and it all come together for the reasonable price of a one-time payment.
This represents value to those of us who are on a budget and can’t afford to pay $240.00 a year for fitness.
If you are looking for something “new” for your money do not buy Sweat with Kayla, you will find it is not new just merely repackaged. Instead, look into the Jen Ferruggia Bikini Body Workout.
