Natalie Jill’s Rev4 Rev It Up workout is a DVD or downloadable video that is designed to let you reach your fitness goals in only 10 minutes per day without having to purchase any gym equipment. This product combines various ten minute workouts that virtually anyone can complete.
Natalie Jill is a licensed Master Sports Nutritionist as well as being a Functional Fitness Trainer. She uses her videos to help share her knowledge with a broader public than would be possible in her private practice.
The ten minute workouts in the Rev4 Rev It Up series challenge a user to keep up the workouts every day in order to improve and change their body. These workouts are also supposed to help boost the metabolic rate, which is an important effect for people who are looking to burn more fat while they are doing a workout as well as after they have finished and have gone back to their daily lives.
The marketing for this program makes it very clear that absolutely no special equipment is required in order to complete it. Instead, the movements use an individual’s own body weight to create the challenge for each exercise.
The four workouts include the Core Crusher, Full Body, Upper Body and Lower Body. Throughout each video, Jill provides motivational and enthusiastic instruction to encourage followers to keep up a positive attitude and complete each exercise for maximum results. Throughout the videos she points to four core inspirational points that are meant to help followers to keep up their own enthusiasm. These are: consistency, intensity, progression and stability.
Each program involves a warm up ahead of the workout as well as a cool down once the workout is complete. Two of the workouts are considered to be the essentials of all the Rev4 Rev It up sessions. This makes it possible for someone to do only one or two of the workouts if they want, provided that they include those essential routines. Beyond the four routines, there is also a bonus section to the video’s contents. That bonus content is an interview with Natalie Jill which is meant to be informative and inspiring. It also helps you to better understand the idea behind the routines and the types of results her training routines have already generated.
The marketing for this video promises that people can work out in their own homes using just their own body weight and 10 minutes per day in order to change the way their bodies look, function and feel. This is the type of claim that is made by dozens of different workout videos, which makes it difficult for many people to believe that this will be any different.
A little bit of skepticism is likely important as the 10 minutes is only the starting point for the workouts, as followers can add on additional 10 minute routines from there. It is quite unlikely that top results will be achieved from only 10 minutes of strength training per day. However, it is also important to pay attention to what the promise actually is. There is no time frame in which the changes will be experienced by the body, nor is there any definition to exactly how the body will look, feel and function differently. This leaves a lot of wiggle room in terms of being able to live up to its promises.
It should also be noted that Natalie Jill is in very good physical condition. While these workouts are supposed to be appropriate for anyone at any fitness level, provided they want to be able to improve their body’s look, feel and function, it’s a good idea to remember that they’re not in the same physical shape as the instructor. It is very important that participants pay close attention to their own fitness levels as they choose their pace and the movements they attempt.
Jill does offer some modifications to the movements in order to make it possible for people who are less fit to be able to do the exercises while avoiding injury, while still having options for individuals who are a bit more on the fit side already. She makes certain recommendations regarding trying the modified versions first, particularly when getting the video started. That way, people can gauge how difficult the exercises are and whether they want to try the more difficult version yet. This is the case when starting each of the new routines in the program.
Rev4 Rev It Up has a wide mix of consumer reviews. The people who love it talk about how easy it is to fit into their schedules, that it’s not hard to get motivated to do a 10 minute workout, and that they like the way they build their stamina and endurance over time as they continue to do the routines.
