I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for B.O.G.O.F.’s at the local supermarkets.

Depending on what bargain I pick up, I usually end up giving the other one away to members of my family, and never feel deprived because I was going to buy the item anyway.

That’s pretty much how I feel about my membership with the 7MinuteWorkout.

It’s an online health and fitness program, which opened its doors to beta testers on 12th March 2011.

I’ve interviewed a few of them and you can listen to what they have to say on my interview site at

Anyway, as a regular customer, which costs $24.97 per month, you and an exercise “buddy” can work out in the comfort of your own home or office if you want to, when you want to, following the specific targeted exercises.

The nice bit about them is once you know what to do, they only take 7 minutes a day, THREE times a week, or you can do them every other day if you wish.

Basically, the program targets five different muscle areas over a ten day period so you work one set of muscles and then rest them for another ten days.

When you’ve worked each muscle group it’s known as a “cycle”, and every ten days you should see a marked increase in your ability to do more.

Sounds easy, eh?

Well, yes and no.

It is simple, and it is FAST, so anyone who hates exercise, can’t afford or can’t get to an expensive gym, or who has a limited amount of time (like me) will find it fantastic, but easy?

Well, that depends on how hard you push yourself to get results.

The secret is to get to positive momentary muscular failure, which basically means you can’t possibly do any more.

 If you’re doing weight exercises that shouldn’t be any more than about 10 to 12 reps, as they say in the fitness industry, and if you’re strapped for cash you don’t even have to buy proper weights.

The thing is when you work by yourself in the comfort of your own surroundings it’s very easy to just say, “I can’t do any more” isn’t it?

You must, of course, always listen to your own body, but that’s where the exercise “buddy” comes in. Even if you don’t work out together or are even in the same area, you do have someone to hold yourself accountable to and that generally makes you push yourself just that little bit harder.

At the end of the day though it’s like everything else. You get out what you put in, so if you really commit to seven minutes exercise a day three times a week, you will see results.

If you’re looking to lose weight, you may not immediately see results on the scales. In fact, you may even put on weight because your fat will turn to lean muscle and eventually you’ll change shape.

The important bit though is it’s a healthy lifestyle change, which will strengthen your bones, build your muscle, give you more energy and generally more self-confidence.

Get back in shape with 7MinuteSuccessWorkoutUnfortunately, as we age, changes in hormones have a nasty habit of creating havoc with our bodies and I’m not the only one who’se looked in the mirror and asked, “What happened?”

Anyway, in addition to the exercise instruction, you also get a lot of physiology and nutritional education, a personalised weight tracker, weekly webinars and the ability to make friends with other 7MinuteWorkout members in the active and helpful forum.

So, why am I telling you all this?

Well, this week the 7MinuteWorkout team dropped a bombshell.

They announced in addition to offering the B.O.G.O.F. deal with the customer package, anyone who joins up as a Business Sponsor, meaning they pay a one off joining fee of $149.97 (and then the same ongoing $24.97 per month customer membership fee), can have SEVEN memberships!

That means they can have one for themselves and give the other six away to whomever they want to.

I’ll bet that sort of offer would go down well in the supermarkets don’t you?

If you work it out, (once the initial one off joining fee has been paid), seven people could each have what’s almost the equivalent to having their own gym membership with a personal trainer and nutritional and emotional support for less that $4 per month!

Amazing deal don’t you think and that’s why I had to tell you about it.

I just think it would be a great Christmas/birthday present for friends and family or a real perk for bosses to offer their hard working employees as it’s proven that health and wellness increases productivity.

Maybe it could even be a good way for mothers at a local mother and toddler group to work out and shift those extra post pregnancy pounds?

All that’s required is a computer and internet access so it doesn’t matter where you live in the world really.

So, why are they doing this?

Get fit and healthy with 7MinuteSuccessWorkoutWell, they’re supporting the message promoted by the Chicoine family of Canada who are running across Canada and USA in the Marathon of Health.   This family of eight are running a total of 17,000 kilometers (about 11,000 miles) to raise awareness of childhood obesity and the dangers associated with it.  It should take them about 10 months.

7MinuteWorkout are not just raising awareness, they’re providing the solutions.

Already 7MinuteWorkout offer a $1 ten day trial and for every $1 signup, the company give $2 to the Chicoine family to support their charities,

So, if you care and want to give the gift of health to others go here
