Turbulence Training Review

June 9th, 2008 by Paul Johnson

The Turbulence Training program was created by Craig Ballantyne. Craig is not new to the fitness scene, he has written for fitness magazines, worked as a personal trainer for years and studied at a university to become a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist.

Through his research, he was able to apply studies he found to develop a program called Turbulence training. The goal of turbulence training is to combine fat loss and muscle building in very effective brief workouts, without wasting hours in the gym. Turbulence Training program has received the endorsement of some very well known individuals in the fitness industry and been featured in Men's Health and Men's Fitness magazines.

Program Overview

Turbulence Training e-book

The main turbulence training book is 128 pages. The program is designed for those who want to lose fat. The workouts are based around high intensity interval cardio after low repetition high intensity resistance training. Craig has you only workout 3 times a week and change your workouts often to avoid plateaus. Craig also includes sample detailed workouts you can follow to a T. He has various levels of workouts including for beginners. He also has bodyweight excercise workout routines, these aren't your normal ones, these are intense! Craig also covers diet, nutrition, and easy step guides on reaching your fat loss goal.

Everything Craig says is supported by research studies. Nothing he says is pseudo-science or just theory. Some of what he teaches, is stuff I have known for years from reading studies myself. The difference is he has compiled it into a nice program that can work. His goal is to get you in the gym to burn fat and build muscle, but also in the quickest time possible. Craig also includes other bonuses in his program. The best are his Dr. Chris Mohr nutrition guide and 3 months access to his forum. If I had one complaint it would be that he give you at least 6 months. 3 months isn't enough time, it's a nice forum.


The program is $39.95, depending on your goals it may be worth it. If you are fat and don't want to be a bodybuilder or gain much muscle, then this program can work for you. This program is for someone with a slow metabolism, who doesn't care about muscle building or that much about strength training. The program is geared around losing fat. If you don't have a problem with losing fat, then you'll find the cardio sessions just a nuisance that get in the way of your muscle building efforts. Although he says you can gain muscle and lose fat with the program, you can only do a little initially. You can't build substantial muscle and fat at the same time. To do that you have to pick one goal, which requires different diets. If you want to get really cut you'll have to lose some muscle. If you want to build up some muscle, you'll have to bulk and gain weight, something this program doesn't cover. Overall $39.95 is a good price for the book and bonuses. The program comes with a money 8 week back guarantee, backed by Clickbank.
