The infomercial market shows no signs of slowing down, so it appears I’ll have a job for quite some time here at Angry Trainer Fitness. Today’s Testing The Trainers features Mari Winsor and her ‘incredible’ Slimming Pilates program.
I’ve seen the ads on TV for years and truthfully just shrugged them off – but does Mari’s program meet its promises? Here’s my take…
Here we go again with another Testing The Trainers, where I break down a popular exercise program and give you my take. In my opinion does the workout work, or is it worthless?
Beach Body, the company that brought us P90X, Insanity, and Turbo Jam is at it again. This program’s called the Brazil Butt Lift – but is it for you?
In my recent “Are All Calories Created Equal” post, I discussed how important it was to understand the quality of various calories, their benefits, and how to use them in an intelligent eating regimen. As my piece made clear – no, not all calories are created equal.
Guess what? The same holds true when it comes to various forms of exercise. Each modality, or form, has a specific function and provides unique benefits to the human body. There is a lot of crossover, meaning that some forms have multiple benefits, while others are a bit more one-dimensional.

Alfonso, your advice has helped me so much before…now I find myself needing your sage words yet again!
I had my morning session with my trainer and following, he told me he is going to be away for some time (like weeks). Call me a weakling, but some panic set in. I refused to allow the fear to consume me. I thought maybe this is a good time to challenge myself to make sure I keep up my accountability and set a program for myself during the time he’s away. He did want me to log my routine and food More >
What’s your take on group weight training classes like Body Pump?
Do you think they are effective at building muscle mass or is it just a variant form of cardio?
I would like to improve my overall physique and strength, but find doing my own weight program a little intimidating, which is why I prefer group training classes.
Hey there. It’s time for another Testing The Trainers and this time I’m reviewing INSANITY, an in-home DVD workout program with bloodlines similar to P90X that’s got quite a following. Actually, Team Beach Body produces both systems; a company that seems to be pumping (pun intended) out workout DVD’s like mad. But can Insanity live up to its big brother’s name, and produce results similar to Tony Horton’s system?
My goal with these posts is to review the fitness program marketplace and give you the thumbs up (or down) on ones that I believe have merit as part of your fitness program. This way, More >
Today’s Back To Basics is really the second part of my guide to getting those “big guns”. So start loading!
My last Back To Basics: Biceps was all about getting full, round, completely developed biceps. But your triceps actually make up ¾ of the girth of your upper arm, and without training them the right way your arms will never look jacked. One look at an anatomy chart and you can clearly see how much larger this muscle group is.
The triceps have 3 heads, hence the name TRI-ceps; the long head, which is the biggest on the back of your arm, the More >
How’s everything going out there in the Angry Trainer Nation? I hope you’re all doing amazingly well on the fitness front. I’m working really hard at providing you with real world information to help you reach your health and fitness goals. And for this week’s Testing The Trainers posting, I’m reviewing another very popular training system that has quite a buzz about it, and an army of devout followers – CrossFit.
I was in Starbucks the other day writing a post when a woman approached me and asked if I workout (true, I swear). So I replied “a little” (LOL) and we More >
