Rocking it out, 15 minutes Each day

Ever wonder if a diet plan's claims are for real? We sure do — so we've decided to put health and diet plans to the test. We're trying's DB15 program. Is it too good to be true?

After trying the Inferno program for a month, I knew it wasn't for me. Still, has a wide variety of workout offerings to choose from, so when they asked if I would try a different program for a month, I said OK.

I checked out all the workout programs and really liked the idea of the dance workout called Let's Move. However, each video was 30 to 40 minutes — not a good fit for my stretched-thin schedule.

So I am currently doing DB15, a super-convenient weight loss program that features 15-minute workouts (or close to 15 minutes) for 15 days. The workouts combine a variety of styles, including yoga and MMA, for a wide variety of exercises to enjoy.

What I love: the timing

There's something absolutely magical about workouts that are only 15 minutes long. They are so easy to fit into any day! Really, finding a spare 15 minutes to work out couldn't be simpler. I find myself turning on workouts while waiting for a favorite TV show to start, in that space of time right before the kids get off the bus and right after they head off to school.

And 15 minutes? It's enough time to work up a good sweat — but not so much that you feel like it's all too much. It's a happy medium, if you will.

Inside the DB15 workouts

One of the best parts of the DB15 program, I think, is the variety of the workouts. Each day is a completely different style of workout, which means you don't get bored (or overwhelmed) by too much of a good thing.

What's also great is that they don't require special equipment, so you can just log in, hit play and go.

The workouts include:

  • Mixed-martial arts: An intense 15-minute MMA workout
  • Let's Move: A fun 15-minute dance workout
  • Inferno: Remember Inferno? Well, at 15-minutes, it's still super-strenuous, but it's also a do-able workout.
  • Yoga: Good for the mind, body and soul
  • And more ...

So far, my favorite has been the Let's Move workout, which was fun but also left me sweating and feeling that joyous post-workout feeling.

Who is this good for?

I'm still doing this program and will fill you in on how successful it was for me soon. But I can already tell that this is a really valuable and worthwhile workout program (I am having so much fun with it!). The DB15 program is absolutely perfect for people like me — busy women who want the elation of a good workout but who don't want to (or can't) spend lots of time doing it.
