    Darebee programs rely on consistency. If you do the program, and put your all into it, you will see improvement. Few of them actually help build mass, as most are about having a fit body that can actually do real work, as opposed to large muscles that tend to be showy.

      I'm doing HIIT advanced and total abs, day 11 so far. And i can already see a difference. I feel more energized, i lost so belly fat and my muscles are harder. After 30 days, i'm pretty sure i'll see a nice difference. It's only 30 days though, don't wait for a miracle but it's a nice start. But, you should mix your workout with a better diet if you can improve that too. We often have reflexes to eat more because we train. We are in better shape but don't lose any fat and then it's really demotivating.

        coolmeet92 The effectiveness of any program, be it from Darebee or any other source it all depends on consistency, discipline a healthy lifestyle. There is no magic, none of the program will give you result instantly, it will take its own time depending on your lifestyle your dedication, towards it.

          I started not long ago. I'm in the 19th day of the "30 days of strength" and feel energetic, but if you ask for phisical changes I can't feel them.

          Anyway, I read somewhere (Quora I think) that, though it's very different from one to another, the most accurate moment of change that one person (gym trainer) was able to find was "after 100 workouts". Many people feel that their body is starting to change around 100 workouts. Assuming those 100 workouts are realized in a period of time not longer than 6 months.

          So probably you won't feel much after one training program, but if the programs are good, maybe you see changes after the second.

            BlueSialia that's not really true - or at least you can't generalize that. It always depends on the workout you're doing. If your workout isn't demanding for your body you can do 1000 workouts and won't see any change. While at the same time there are workouts like some of the experiments you can find in our Lab section that give you very visible and measurable change after only 10 days (2 minute pull up, 3000 push ups / curls, 20,000 crunches).
            Your body changes if it sees the need for it, and it will only see the need if you challenge it and push it to the limit. The more you push it, the faster it will change.

            So that being said, the effectiveness of a program depends on your own fitness level and the intensity you do the program with. If you are absolutely out of shape and you manage to complete 30 days of HIIT on let's say level 2 the results will be huge. Because it is something your body is just not used to it has to adapt to the new situation more drastically, so you will see increase of endurance, cardio which feels like an overall increase in energy.

            But if you're already superfit and you do the same program on level 1 you probably won't see any difference at all, because it just wasn't challenging for you.

            coolmeet92 there is no formula that says "do this program and you will lose 2kg (or 4lbs)". Or "do that program and you will gain 1kg (2lbs) of muscle", it just doesn't work like that. The programs give you a solid guideline and a pre-designed structure you can workout with without having to think "hmm...what workout do I do today", but the results will depend on yourself and the intensity you do the workout with. If you wan't the most benefits from the programs make sure to give it your all. Every.Single.Time. And you will experience positive change

              Well, I assumed the effects are very different depending in a bunch of factors. Somehow I wanted to say that, according to a gym trainer, around 100 workouts (I suppose typical workout of a medium person starting to go to the gym) are a mark in body change (for that medium person).

              Aside from that, thank you for the info. I registered yesterday and that was very informative. I'm definitely gonna read more of those experiments. Maybe I'm capable of doing one.

                BlueSialia a there is a lot of misinformation floating around everywhere and and unfortunately it gets more believable the more people recite it. That's why we try to state the facts and back it up with science
                Damer just wrote a very good post about that here.

                I'm glad I could help you. And hopefully we will see you in one of our experiments or challenges soon

                Oh and welcome to the hive!

                  I do martial arts often (3 days a week, somethimes 4, 2 hours per day) and I also started this program to reduce my belly. I've done so far 6 days of HIIT and I do think my belly reduced a bit. Not sure, but I don't doubt the programs here. There is plenty of information and I am sharing this with some friends as well. I absolutely support this website.

                    coolmeet92 ... I'm lazy. I admit it. I don't work as hard at this as I ought. So, maybe you ought not use me as a standard.
                    BUT!
                    I work out regularly. Most days of each week, a variety of exercises each day.
                    And ... I'm meeting my goal!
                    That goal? To be younger, by a bit, in some way, every day.
                    My stride is longer these days, and I scuff my feet less. I can genuflect - lunge knee-to-floor - and arise easily (haven't done that in decades). I can scoot under a hand-rail by bending, no hand-to-ground. A dozen(+) flights of stairs a day. ... should I continue? I'm younger than I was in my 60s!
                    Still have my belly-fat. (boo!) My chest and guns are unimpressive. But I'm feeling younger. That's what matters. To ME!

                      To me it is all about consistency.

                      If you do your programs you will see change. In three days or in three months, it does not really matter. But once you do, you will see a lot more.

                        coolmeet92 I have not done the HIIT or Total abs (yet) but I am currently doing the 30-Day Flexibility Challenge. Just 8 days in I can see and feel massive improvement.

                        That being said a gymnast will not notice anything so drastic, it's all about where you start and how hard you push.

                        So push hard and start now!

                          I got involved doing this just to see if it would make me feel any better at all in regards to my chronic pain conditions. Well, in short, somedays it feels like it makes me feel better and other days it doesn't. However, I have noticed in the almost seven months that I have been doing this, that my flexibility has indeed improved! For example, my back and hamstring muscles used to be so tight that I could no longer bend over at the waist and touch the floor or my toes... Now, I can do this! :-) Slightly uncomfortable for my back, however, it is an accomplishment! I think it all depends regarding Effectiveness as to what an individual persons goals are. For me, it also gives me something I can control since my health has rendered me unable to work for the last 17 months....and, when you have lost control over most aspects of your life, it's pretty cool having one thing that is still under your control

                            I found Darebee during the COVID-19 shelter orders. I am 51, already had a good home gym, and am a kettlebell and highland games type guy. I figured my cardio/metcon would be my weak spot. I started with the 30 days of HIIT-Advanced and completed it in 32 days, every day on the level III protocol. So now I'm in the Military Fit+ and on day 8. This one is WAY more challenging. (It doesn't help that my smallest sandbag is 50lb, not the recommended 35.) I'm only doing level I and each day is hard. No rest days yet, but that's actually one of the strengths of the programming. I see the Military Fit+ as a 90 day program, because I plan to go through it once at each level.

                            This is good programming. I'm a high school S&C coach and lacrosse coach. I played both lacrosse and football in college. I was in the Junior Olympics as a kid. Lifelong workout and gym guy. Darebee is worth your time.

                            As for the results? I felt the HIIT Advanced was a little easy. I've got a belly because I like to eat and throwing heavy implements and tree trunks sometimes needs a counterweight. I didn't lose any weight in the first 30 days, in fact I gained 9lb in the first 15 and dropped 4 of those in the 2nd 15. So far, 8 days into Military Fit+, I'm down 1 more lb. But at 250, that's a rounding error.

                              For me, they are effective, but you need to pick what's right for your needs and your fitness level, like what TheRaven says. Then do it right, work your best, and you will see results.

                              The two that gave me remarkable results were 30 Days of Cardio Blast and Spartan Trial. With Cardio Blast I ran faster afterwards, and I could totally feel the badge (the dashing fireball ) I also had more endurance. Spartan Trial really improved my strength, and one reason why it worked so well was because my strength was weak to start with, and strength was what I needed. I ran faster and longer because of all the leg stuff. There was less upperbody strength improvement because I hurt my back/shoulder blade on day 10 I guess and I basically stopped doing push ups, or way less in volume and intensity, and the dumbbells I picked were light. I still gained some strength, though.

                              Back and Core also worked well for me, and 90 days of action but in a subtle way.
