Love the fact that it’s based off of lifestyle change rather than just quick 8 week diet. Also obsessed with the supplements. Will be sticking with Bree for a long time!
I honestly wasn’t sure if I had it in me to learn a new way to approach a healthy lifestyle, especially as a busy mom of three. BBB made it super attainable and easy! The first week of education was so helpful and set me up for success! It takes determination and hard work to commit to logging and weighing your foods every day, but the results are incredible! And that’s only after 8 weeks! I intend on continuing counting macros and doing the BBB workouts and feel equipped to do so after this 8 week program.
I chose to do this program with a challenge after my second baby to keep myself on track while also in a masters program. I loved this program because it helped me feel great and made me spend an hour on myself by working out! I was able to be a happier mom and show my toddler the importance of exercise (when I was home my toddler would workout with me :) ). The positivity surrounding this program is so wonderful and supportive.
Love this program! Not only is it keeping me accountable but consistent with my physical and mental health. When working out I wish the sets that have to be timed had a timer we could click on. Just so I don’t have to go from the app to my phone timer.
I started the 8 week individual postpartum training program at 7 weeks postpartum. I worked out my entire pregnancy and have been counting macros for about a year.
-support from other women in the body by Bree chat group
-macro count helped maintain my milk supply
-education week has some good information
-some good recipes included in the nutrition plan
-helped motivate me to start working out again
-Ab workouts that auto drop with the workouts are not always safe for postpartum moms so you have to be careful! You can sub other workouts in for these, but isn’t the purpose of a postpartum program so that you don’t have to worry about this?
-the postpartum abs phases 1-4 do not automatically drop into your daily workouts. It would be nice if each phase was loaded for 2 weeks and then you can adjust based on what you feel ready for.
-phase 1 of postpartum abs workout is the only one with audio instruction.
-some of the workout video clips were a little glitchy where you couldn’t hear what Bree was saying or the video would just flash for a second. Most were good, but I think someone on her team could revisit this to make them better.
-warmup and cool down routines do not automatically drop into each days workout. Another thing that you have to add to your workouts every day. Lots of adjustments that you have to make.
-Body by Bree is not compatible with the Lose It App (only my fitness pal)
Good, but not great for new postpartum Moms.
I hope the BBB team takes these suggestions and makes a beginner postpartum program for women starting to workout at 6 weeks and an advance postpartum program for women 6 months and up. I bought the program at a discount so I think it was worth it, but if I paid full price I would be disappointed.
