The skinny: "Anyone without a gym membership should own this" 15-disc set, one reviewer said. The "passionate" Biggest Loser pro leads you through a 90-day program designed to burn fat and build muscle in 30 minutes. Expect circuit training that progresses in intensity (a basic squat on disc one turns into a single-leg squat with a reverse fly on a later disc). "No wonder people get results," said one satisfied tester midway through this plan.
