Give our Coaches a quick overview of 22 Minute Hard Corps…

22 Minute Hard Corps is a straightforward, boot camp-style fitness program that has a collection of total-body cardio and resistance routines. Each workout combines a series of simple movements that recruit multiple muscle groups with a cadence-based pace to deliver unbelievable results in only 22 minutes a day.

How did you come up with the concept?

Carl was aware of my many trips across the US and around the world to US military bases. My observation was that many of them were using P90X, X2, and X3, which was great, but after further discussion with Carl, we both felt it was time for an 8-week boot camp style program. 22 Minute Hard Corps was boot camp-inspired, but something the general public would also love to do while also giving them an opportunity to connect with and support our military.

How is it different from your other programs?

First, the program is only 22 minutes from start to finish. Breaks between exercises are minimal. Second, we cast real vets and shot the workouts in three outdoor locations: on the U.S.S. Iowa, in Barker hanger, and in the dirt up in the Malibu mountains. Unlike P90X or X3, this is not an extreme program, but it is intense. You will work up a sweat and see results if you keep up with the program.

Talk about your experience with the military…

My tours around the world have been one of the highlights of my life. Casting vets for the majority of the workouts was a no-brainer. They already knew how to bring it for these workouts; their training in boot camp taught them that. They were hard working, enthusiastic, and brought real authenticity to the program.

What would you say to someone who's nervous about the military-style intensity of this program?

There's no reason to be afraid of 22 Minute Hard Corps because I treat the user the same way I do in all my programs. It's a nice blend of allowing you to back off when you need to, and knowing when to help you put the pedal to the metal.

What's your favorite individual workout in 22 Minute Hard Corps?

Ha! That's like asking who my favorite cast member is. The collective body of the program fits into pieces that allow it to work for everyone. The Cold Start warm-up is probably the most essential because of the speed and pace of the workouts, but the Core workouts are killer too.

What kind of results can people expect from this workout?

If they dial in their diet, drink Shakeology®, use Beachbody Performance Formulas and hang on tight for 8 weeks, they will be thrilled to see how much they change.
