T-Tapp: For me, the ideal exercise!


T-Tapp: a physical therapy approach to inch loss, hormone balance and muscle toning

T-Tapp: A WELLNESS Workout

During the month of February, I followed a set schedule of T-Tapp workouts. I wanted to give this unique movement therapy a full month trial before I shared the results with you. I fell in love with this rehabilitative, hormone-balancing, physical therapy approach to fitness and I’m sharing my results and experience today.

Note: I did continue to take ballet classes twice per week because I was registered for the classes. Ballet is considered complimentary to T-Tapp (a concept I discuss below), but ideally I would have been able to do nothing but T-Tapp and some walking for the entire month.

P.S. This post is not sponsored by T-Tapp and (as always) this is my honest review and experience.

What is T-Tapp?

Teresa Tapp, the founder of T-Tapp, (you can learn more about her background at the T-Tapp website) summarizes the concept of this unique wellness exercise program:

T-Tapp is a physical therapy approach to fitness that delivers muscle density rather than bulk. It is very rehabilitative for those with lower back, hip and knee problems as well as upper spine, neck and shoulder problems. The movements appear very simple but they are quite complex in that each exercise movement utilizes both attachments of the muscle rather than just one attachment and belly of the muscle.

In fitness terms T-Tapp utilizes comprehensive, compound muscle movement done in a specific sequence incorporating neuro-kinetic flow, linear alignment and isometrics combined with lymphatic stimulation. Regular exercise such as aerobics, weight training and yoga are primarily “isotonic” (ie: using one attachment and belly of muscle). (Read more about T-Tapp from Teresa)

Chronic cardio: not the way to go!

I discovered T-Tapp while researching the effects of exercise on metabolism and hormone balance. The more I learned, the more I realized that the chronic cardio is problematic for healthy people and downright catastrophic for those who, like me, struggle with imbalanced hormones and a slow metabolic rate.

fast-lane-1093834-mWhat is chronic cardio? My lose definition is “exercise for the sake of exercise that keeps your heart rate elevated and spikes cortisol.” This includes jogging, running, marathon running, spinning classes and things like Zumba class where you feel out of breath for a long period of time. These types of exercise create elevated cortisol, a stress hormone, which is exactly that – a stress on the body. That is why those with adrenal fatigue are cautioned not to do any form of cardio for at least a month to reach recovery (here’s my post on adrenal fatigue recovery).

Additionally, chronic cardio creates free radical damage. Dr. Perricone – of the Perricone skincare line – actually cautions against chronic cardio because the free radicals cause premature aging of the skin. He highly recommends T-Tapp because is in an anti-aging exercise therapy and does not contribute to free radical damage.

Benefits of T-Tapp

  • T-Tapp improves posture and core stability

T-Tapp provides restorative, therapeutic movement while working the deepest layers of muscle. After doing the Basic Plus workout, Full Workout and Healthy Hormones workouts (each on different days), I woke up with muscle soreness in places I didn’t know I had muscle!

For example, the Healthy Hormones Workout, on this DVD, seems like a very gentle workout but the abdominal soreness I experienced after the first couple of times was very, very deep in my core. You’re not just working surface muscles with T-Tapp, you’re getting into the deep muscles that provide the foundation for proper posture and alignment.

Two posture improvements that almost all T-Tappers see within the first few weeks is a flatter belly and reduced rounding in the shoulders. This is because Teresa designed the movements to strengthen your muscles to work as a girdle, holding you up and tucking you in. 

  • T-Tapp supports healthy blood sugar balance

T-Tapp provides a profoundly valuable resource for anyone who struggles with blood sugar balance… which is nearly everyone. Stress, inflammation, refined foods, toxins and anxiety all increase blood sugar. Constantly elevated blood sugar exacerbates inflammation, can lead to diabetes and is part of the problem for hypothyroidism and PCOS.

Any and all T-Tapp routines help immediately reduce blood sugar levels, thereby improving overall health and combatting inflammation. Teresa designed Hoe Downs, a unique left-right brain movement in the T-Tapp workout, to specifically target high blood sugar. After one experience with Hoe Downs, I’m a believer!

glucose monitorI recently began using a glucose meter. A few weeks ago, I returned home from doing errands at the mall. When I came home, I tested my blood glucose and it was 130, even though I hadn’t eaten anything for 4 hours (it’s usually high-80’s between meals). I know this high reading was because my blood sugar became elevated due to the stress and chemicals at the mall – it really does stress out my body.

I immediately thought about Hoe Downs and I did two sets, which takes all of two minutes. After the two sets, I took my blood glucose reading again and it was 100!

Here’s the tutorial of Hoe Downs

  • T-Tapp relieves bloating

I’ve been puzzled with some unusual digestive symptoms for the past couple of weeks, which happens every few months and usually indicates that I’m reacting to a certain food. (A fact that reminds me that healing is not always a straight line – there are hills and valleys. That’s the journey!). The digestive discomfort  for me for this “valley” period was unexpected bloating.

T-Tapp offered me profound relief from the bloating. This is one reason why I recommend doing T-Tapp in a room with a closed door, alone. Because if there is any trapped gas or air in your digestive system, it’s going to come out during T-Tapp! The 15-minute Basic Plus workout was enough to significantly reduce any bloating.

  • T-Tapp improves regularity and digestion

A few days after beginning T-Tapp, most individuals experience the “T-Tapp Cleanse.” I’m pretty regular thanks to the Autoimmune Paleo Protocol, so I was surprised with the very, er, profound cleanse the third day after doing T-Tapp. I highly recommend T-Tapp as a safe, healthy way to improve regularity, without gut-damaging fiber supplements.

T-Tapp: a physical therapy approach to inch loss, hormone balance and muscle toningWhy does T-Tapp improve regularity? The workout consists of numerous twists, which act as an internal massage to loosen and release things that are stuck in the colon. As a matter of fact, the twist movements in T-Tapp promote healthier digestion in general.

  • T-Tapp improves lymphatic flow

As the “garbage disposal” of the body, the lymphatic system collects and carries lymphatic fluid so the toxins in this fluid can be eliminated from the body. Unlike the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump and relies on our movements and gravity to circulate lymph fluid.

When we sit all day, the lymph fluid becomes stagnant and toxins collect. T-Tapp utilizes twists, pumping motions, and full-body muscle activation to get that lymph fluid moving – really moving – from head-to-toe. Since cellulite is caused by poor lymphatic drainage, T-Tapp reduces cellulite for many women. I’ve definitely noticed improvement in my tights/bun after my month of T-Tapp.

Here’s my insider tip for improving lymph flow and cellulite reduction: Before I do my T-Tapp, I apply my Lymph Flow™ essential oil (I discuss it here) to maximize lymphatic drainage!

  • T-Tapp leaves me fatigued but invigorated

T-Tapp fatigues muscles layer-by-layer, starting with the outer muscles and working into the deepest layers of core muscles. Due to the specific pattern and sequence of movements, each T-Tapp workout fatigues your muscles. You’ll probably experience muscle trembling during some of the movements, which indicates that you’re working the small muscles to the max.

After the workout, however, most T-Tappers feel energized. I do! Although my muscles are tired, I have more mental clarity and a sense of rejuvenation.

  • T-Tapp reduces shoulder tension

I hold a lot of tension in my shoulders and T-Tapp helps this in two ways. First, it strengthens all the muscles in the back, shoulders and chest to improve posture. Secondly, many of the movements act as a massage to workout shoulder kinks. You’ll know exactly what I mean when you try it!

  • T-Tappers offers significant inch loss

Most of you already know that I’ve undergone significant healing after suffering from a very severe autoimmune disease. I say this because my body is most likely in a different place than your body and we need to make sure our expectations fit our body.

I was hoping to lose a couple of inches (around thighs and hips) during this first month. I didn’t reach my small inch loss goals for a couple of reasons. Primarily, I think it was due to the digestive issues I was facing in the past couple of weeks. Also, my metabolism was so stressed to due my years of illness and medications that I think my body is just not ready to lose those extra inches. I think it will just take more time as my body continues to heal, and I’m okay with that, as I don’t ever plan to stop T-Tapp. However, in the first two weeks, I noticed toning in my arms, abs, thighs and reduced cellulite!

With that said, significant inch loss IS typical with T-Tapp… in just two weeks! The below images is the Start/ 2 Week/ 60 Day results from Deb Shafer. You can read her 2 week  success story, as well as the results other T-Tappers have experienced in 2 weeks, here on the 2 Week Success Stories page.

t-tapp success

I love that T-Tapp focuses on clothing size and inch loss, not a number on a scale. I’ve not stepped on a scale for two years, and I highly suggest you also toss your scale! A scale doesn’t consider muscle vs. fat and can get you too hung up on a number. It’s better to set inch loss goals, not weight loss goals. Most T-Tappers weight 10-15 pounds more than they look, because of their toned but not bulky muscles.

  • T-Tapp builds lean – not bulky – muscles

As someone with a dance background (non-professional, but I almost minored in dance), I’m looking for lean, balletic lines and not bulk. Many trainers say that when you lift weights correctly, you do not bulk up. However, I have the body type that does bulk, so I’ve been very apprehensive to start weight lifting.

 T-Tapp works both ends of the muscle to create long, toned muscles. Even though weights are not needed, it builds bone density. The T-Tapp DeBulk Sequence is designed to reverse bulky muscles.

  • No gym, weights or machines needed with T-Tapp!

Some people need the incentive of an actual class with an instructor to workout. I am not one of those people, primarily because I prefer working out in the comfort of my own home. I can wear the yoga pants that I haven’t washed in a week and I don’t have to drive anywhere – yay!

Next fall, I will be living on campus with a busier schedule. T-Tapp is something that I can easily practice in my dorm room and fit into my lifestyle. If you compare it to the price of a class at the gym or the expense of purchasing weights/exercise machines, the T-Tapp workouts pay for themselves in only a matter of days.

  •  T-Tapp offers tons of free support

When you order T-Tapp, you can call and speak with a representative to discuss your unique needs and tailor your workout routine. This is a totally free service!

What to expect with T-Tapp

Now that I’ve discussed the benefits of T-Tapp, I want to briefly explain what you can expect while doing the workout.

First, for whatever workout DVD you select (the workout DVDs are found here), you’ll get a “tutorial version” and “full workout version” on the disk. In the tutorial, you’ll learn the steps, technique and form. Please, don’t skip the tutorial!

The movements are not confusing, but they are sometimes counter-intuitive because they engage both the left and right brain hemispheres. I come from a dance background, and it still took me a while to master some of the movements. Don’t worry, you’ll get the hang of it after just a few sessions.

Most importantly, you’ll always get results with T-Tapp if you go to your max. If you experience muscle trembling, that’s great! It means you’re working the small muscles.

Can I do other exercises with T-Tapp?

Walking perfectly compliments whichever T-Tapp routine you choose. With Barefoot Basics (included with the Total Workout DVD), you’ll learn how to incorporate T-Tapp techniques into your walking to boost inch loss and muscle tone.

After discussing other exercises and T-Tapp with a representative, I learned that yoga, stretching and ballet also compliment T-Tapp. This is why I continued my ballet classes while doing my first month of T-Tapp. Jogging, pilates, running, spinning, Cross Fit and other forms of exercise do not compliment T-Tapp and can prevent inch loss and posture improvement. 

If you choose to try T-Tapp, I highly encourage you to follow the rules and exclude the non-complimentary exercises – otherwise, you are cheating this carefully designed system and you will not get maximum results.

What T-Tapp workout is right for me?

The essential workout suitable for almost everyone is the Total Workout, found on this DVD, which includes both the 15 minute Basic Plus workout and the 55 minute Total Workout. During March, you will also get 4 bonus DVDs with your Total Workout purchase: Barefoot Basic Workout, Basic Plus Tempo Workout, Tempo Arms Workout, and the T-Tapp Seminar DVD (learn about the bonuses here).

TotalWorkoutDVD_100x100The Total Workout DVD is ideal for those looking to lose inches quickly- even a lot of inches – and improve overall health, muscle tone and flexibility. The Basic Workout Plus (the 15 minute version), which is included with the Total Workout DVD, is designed for those with chronic fatigue, adrenal fatigue, diabetes, autoimmune diseases. Even though it is only 15 minutes, many T-Tappers experience drastic inch loss doing the Basic Plus six times per week.

I would also like to bring attention to the Menopause Management and Healthy Hormones workout, found on this separate DVD, which works wonders for improving all types of hormonal imbalances. It was also designed to improve hypothyroidism, so definitely consider using it alone or in conjunction with the Total Workout DVDs.

Check out the Getting Started page here to learn more about the workouts and pick the right one for your situation.

    Thank you for posting this. It sounds like exactly what I need. I have back and shoulder issues and the exercise I do is physical therapy and group exercise in the pool. I want to start rebounding too. Do you think all of this will be ok with T Tapp?

    • says

      Yes, I think rebounding is a good compliment to T-Tapp – great question! I think gentle rebounding (your feet don’t need to leave the trampoline) is very effective without stressing the body. You can apply the posture tips you’ll learn in the workout to keep good posture on while rebounding, too :)

  2. says

    Hi Lauren! I’m very interested in this! I’ve never heard of it before! With all the confusing workout advice out there, I thought doing HITT’s and weights would help with my PCOS and hypothyroidism! I’m glad you wrote about this. Which working DVD have you been working with? I was thinking the Healthy Hormones one… hope to hear from you, -Heather

    • says

      Right now, I use the Basic Plus (15 minutes) twice or three times a week, the full workout (55 minutes) twice a week, and the Healthy Hormones once a week (but sometimes I’ll do Healthy Hormones + walking instead of the full workout), with a full day off from the workouts. I’ll often add some short, slowish nature walks on various days.

  3. says

    Sounds cool. Is there a combo package that you bought though with a schedule telling you what to do each day? I couldn’t seem to find that on their website. How many minutes would you say you do a day? I’d like to pair it with yoga.

  4. says

    Thanks for sharing. I am Personal Trainer so it’s great to learn new workout styles. I hadn’t heard of this and think it would be perfect for older women and also people who are having health issues.

  5. Sarisha says

    Hi Lauren!

    I didnt get a chance to look at the website in detail, but is there any additional equipment needed for these workouts? Just making sure.


  6. jen says

    I wanted to love T-Tapp. I think it was something you posted about it before that made me try it. I tried it for a few days but just felt weird doing it. It definitely is invigorating though! I might have to give it another chance :-)

  7. Mandy says

    I have done T-tapp off and on for the last six years and I LOVE it! It has been off and on, as I have struggled with several different health issues. I own MANY of the T-tapp DVDs, but my current favorite is MORE. It is a slower, more gentle approach, that I am able to accomplish with my adrenal & chronic fatigue. It also has three, 10 minute or less workouts for the days when I am not even able to do the full MORE workout. For people who are dealing with a lot of health issues or are very overweight, MORE is a great place to start! :)

    Currently my loss is slow but sure, because I am physically unable to workout as much as I would like. In the past, I have had fast and AMAZING results while doing Basic Workout Plus and/or the Total Workout. Even while only doing shorter MORE workouts many days, I am still definitely losing inches and toning though! T-tapp is the best workout out there! I have tried MANY different ones!

    Thanks for sharing with everyone about it, Lauren!

  8. Jennifer says

    I also think that T-Tapp is fantastic! I purchased the DVD’s a few years ago and only did the workouts occasionally. Until this year that is. I started doing the Basic Workout Plus just every other day or sometimes three times a week, but every week. In just three weeks I noticed a significant reduction of fat on my stomach (I’m very obese so this is fantastic) and also how much better my posture is. I have very large breasts and have always had hunched shoulders ever since I can remember. I was noticing in the mirror how much straighter my back is with my shoulder blades not poking out. I was actually a bit shocked. I’m 53 and this is the best workout, producing the best results (and easiest) I have ever found! I would certainly encourage anyone to try it consistently for a week or more, no matter how bad of shape you are in. Also read the testimonials on the T-Tapp website and you will be encouraged even more.

  9. sarah says

    I first read about T tapp on Wellness Mama and started doing the total workout last October..aside from feeling more balanced and energetic, my acne also cleared up! I’ve been off and on birth control and antibiotics for 13 years for acne and stopped all of it to try a more natural healing approach. This could be unrelated, but with the claims of pumping your lymphatic system and clearing toxins, it might be the reason!

  10. Kelsey says

    Just wanted to write and say that I have been reading your blog for a few months and love it, especially the buttermint recipe! I also read that you are hoping to come to Bastyr University soon, I go to university in Seattle as well. We should get coffee when you come up :)

  11. Mrs. Rogers says

    I wanted to like T Tap, too! I think the moves are really confusing! I stopped the instructional part 3/4 of the way through almost in tears because I thought she moved too fast and it was really hard to get the hang of the moves. :( I def want to try again, though.

    • says

      Please don’t be hard on yourself – it takes a while to get the moves! You don’t need to do the moves perfectly to start the workouts, after a while it will “click.” Just keep pausing the instructional to work things out.

  12. Angela says

    Hi Lauren,
    Thank you so much for all of this great information that you share with use every week! I am a 51 year old full-time working single mom/grandmother…I wanted to ask if this is okay for me considering I have a few herniated discs in my lumbar spine. (lower back) I am trying to strengthen my core. I purchased a couple of yoga dvds for people with injuries such as mine.. but I also deal with other health issues (hashimotos… untreated, as I can not tolerate meds, or most supplements).. and this program sounds perfect for me, but I’m just not sure if its appropriate with my back. I know with any exercise program to seek the advice of my physician ;)… but i believe I read somewhere that this is ok… for back problems?…

  13. amanda says

    I drive truck with my husband and have been looking for something that can be done in my extremely limited space. I have the bed and about 3 ft X 4 ft of floor space. Would that be adequate for enough of the exercises to be worth it?

    • Sharon Gallentine says

      T-tapp doesn’t require a lot of space. I think it would be perfect for this space. I love t-tapp!!

  14. Janna says

    Lauren, this is too funny! I started T-Tapp at about the same time you did. And I picked the same workouts, Total and Healthy Hormones. I am in love with it. I had been lifting weights for years and was looking for a change to my routine. With T-Tapp less is more but I find that I am enjoying it so much that I have hard time taking the recommended days off. I love the transformation in my arms. Just like you I am looking for some inch loss in my thighs and they are being stubborn, but I am committed to this workout system and one day it will happen. I know I am not going back.

  15. Jenna says

    Hi Lauren, I really do love your website and have followed a lot of your recommendations before. I was wondering if T-Tapp works/is the best for normal weight teen girls, I haven’t really found any reviews from younger people so I’m not really sure. I was interested in T-tapp since I have this event coming up at the end of the month and I wanted to tone a few areas quickly, and the health benefits sound awesome! Also, is there any way for me to get T-tapp online? I don’t have anything that can play CD’s. Thanks for posting about this!

  16. Carla says

    It’s important to understand that we have been spoon fed very specific exercise terminology. Cardiovascular and heart rate and strength training are among them.

    As someone with a husband who suffers from vertigo, I have come to appreciate anything that uses movements that appeal to both the right and left brain. He has hypothyroidism and altered vision (not related to typical eye problems), and he’s often off balance. My husband works full-time and is very active, but not without a lot of effort and stress.

    We are going to spend 30 days practicing T-Tapp as a couple. I have a feeling that once he learns the exercises (from muscle memory) and develops a sense of routine and comfort, despite being off balance a lot, he will start to experience noticeable improvements. We are also removing caffeine and processed sugars from our diet (which we consume only moderately) and are taking some steps to eat more in the tradition of Paleo.

    I do have to say that when I watched the hoe down YouTube video above, it seemed kind of cheesy and her voice rather grating. But there is something different about these movements. They are very deliberate and brain engaging, and so I can appreciate her need to carefully guide us through the steps. My husband especially will find this frustrating at first, just trying to keep up while also struggling with his balance. But I know him, and I have a strong feeling that T-Tapp is going to make a difference in a short amount of time.

    So in that sense exercise is NOT at all basic. There’s a great video I wish I could find of an older man in his 70s demonstrating a fun obstacle course he created on his land. He has worked with brain trauma patients for years, helping them rebuild and strengthen their brains and muscle coordination through what seem to be very silly and playful games. He’s pretty amazing, and I think T-Tapp has a similar approach.

    Thanks for introducing this to me, Lauren!

  17. Angie says

    I’m would be interested to know your thoughts regarding the CRT body brushing/skin tightening system. Is it a necessary part of doing T-Tapp? Part of my motivation for doing T-Tapp is weight loss but I don’t want to lose a lot of weight and end up with excess skin. So, just curious what you think about that part of the system. Thanks!

  18. Timmi says

    I am curious how if this will cause my back to go into spasms. I have been having back spasms ever since I had my last child almost 5 years ago. The Drs don’t know why and the physical therapist thinks maybe due to the lack of muscle strength in my core. But every time I try to do the exercises that will help my core my back goes into spasms and I can’t do them for days. I have gained weight become so weak from the lack of exercise and now that I have been diagnosed with lyme disease its has been even slower going.

  19. Christine says

    At what point can you branch out from T-Tapp into more intense strength building? I do very much want to reap the myriad benefits from T-Tapp, but I’d also like to build up a fair amount of functional bodyweight strength in the long run. Also, is T-Tapp something you have to keep doing all the time in order to “keep” the results? Perhaps I’m approaching this all wrong and will be more open to adjusting my goals after trying it. But as someone who was never athletic until recently, I am hesitant to sacrifice much of the progress I’ve made.

  20. says

    In doing some searching about T-Tapp, it looked really hokey to me….but your post(and the coupon code) convinced me to give it a shot. I’m interested to see if it actually delivers in terms of toning and inch loss….I’m not overweight by any means, but I have some stomach fat I’ve been trying to shed for a long time! I had thyroid cancer 2 years ago; it’s really hard for me to lose weight because I’m 100% dependent on thyroid hormones, and they are so hard to regulate. Even though I eat Paleo, do kettlebells, and am in decent shape, I’ve been depositing fat on my stomach/hips and my pants from 2 years ago don’t fit right. Grr!!

    So….I bought T-Tapp. I am taking a break from kettlebells (thinking maybe I was overworking my body), walk a ton (now that the weather is finally not sub-zero in WI), and have added T-Tapp to my routine. I did my first workout yesterday (the intro on the Basic Workout Plus DVD)….holy cow. For only being 15 minutes, I was sweating and feeling the burn for sure. We’ll see how the next couple of weeks go…and if it doesn’t work for me, well, I can sell it on Ebay and get most of my money back :P.

    Thanks again for the post and coupon code!

  21. laura says

    Hi, I just did an eight-day boot camp of the basic workout plus after reading this post, and so far I’m really happy with how it’s going. I’m considering trying the healthy hormones workout also, but I don’t want to lose the fitness results I’m getting so far. How would you compare the BWO+ and the healthy hormones workout in terms of difficulty and strength-building? Thanks for the recommendation, by the way, I am loving it!

  22. nora says

    I want to send you a big THANK YOU, for recommending this! I have tried every exercise under the sun, the more intense, the more I loved it! Bodyrock,running,crossfit,weight lifting… you name it. After every baby my way of losing weight was always over exercising, sometimes 4-5 hrs a day! I sure was skinny… healthy? Nope! My adrenals were shot! By my third pregnancy my body was so exhausted I couldn’t get off the couch for the first many months. My body was so desparate for some rest. Then, since I wasn’t putting in my hours of exercise the guilt set in..
    My baby is now 6 months old, and after exhausting myself with crossfit while only getting 5 hrs of very interrupted sleep since he’s been born, I knew I needed to find something else. I had heard about this a long time ago on wellness mama, but it sounded too good to be true, and pretty far out there compared to my idea at the time of exercise. So low and behold as I was desperately searching for an exercise that would be gentle on my sleep deprived body, you posted this. I went ahead and ordered the set you had recommend, with the total body workout, barefoot basics etc. I have only been one week into it (still on the one with instructions) only doing the 15 minute workout, and I absolutely LOVE IT! I am sweating, refreshed and energized in that short amount of time. I told my husband I will quit all other exercise besides yoga and walking for at least a month, before I decide what I think… one week in, and I am so in love I don’t see myself going back to anything I used to do. I just wanted to take the time to say if anyone is on the fence, I totally recommend giving it a try. I also love her tips for turning on the muscles as you walk, simple and effective. Also, thanks for your amazing blog Lauren! I really appreciate all your effort, and am constantly learning something new from you.

  23. Ana says

    Hi Lauren, I realize this post is a little old but hopefully you won’t miss this comment. I am 21 and sick with late stage Lyme Disease. I’ve been basically bed-bound for almost two years with lots of severe symptoms. I am finally starting to see some progress and can walk for about 15 minutes to exercise. I can also do some gentle exercises in the pool. Do you think T-Tapp would be appropriate and manageable for me? I used to be a ballerina and would really like to start getting my strength back so I can at least walk when I go out (I usually use a wheelchair). Do you think this kind of exercise would be too strenuous on someone with chronic infection and serious widespread pain?

    Hi I have a problem with low thayrod and I have bad knees I am 5″2 Inches and I am 195 my weight goes up and down and my age 5 1 I like to know wish program will be best for me thank you.

  25. says

    Lauren, wow…I love your article about T-Tapp! You were so thorough and covered everything. I only wish I had written it myself! :)

    I’m a T-Tapp Trainer and spend a lot of my time trying to sell people on the benefits and explain what T-Tapp is and you have done so perfectly! When I try to do it, I always sound “salesly” to myself and I don’t want to sound “salesly” I just know what a fantastic workout this is.

  26. Kella says

    I was really excited about trying this method, but then I watched some of the videos on youtube, and it seems as though she really advocates for tucking during the exercises…I then read some other reviews that said this tucking was believed to cause peoples’ back/knee problems. What are your thoughts on this? All of the positive reviews seem really great, and I love that it’s not crazy intense, and seems really well-balanced. It seems like it could be really beneficial, but I’m worried about the tucking bit now. Any thoughts/advice are appreciated. :)

  27. Jack says

    Hi Lauren,

    Can i do other work-outs like insane home fat loss with mike chang while doing t-tapp also? And can i also run or is that a no-no?

    and my balance is off, and the therapy l need didn’t help. So hopefully l will be able to o this
    Thank you

    It sounds like the hoe down is great for lowering blood sugar, but if you’re blood sugar is ok, will it still lower it? I’ve had problems with hypoglycemia (rare, but occasional), but my fasting blood sugar is 105.

  30. says

    Glad you mentioned the exercises that compliment T-tapp. When I didn’t see any results for over a month, I got discouraged and started using exercising on the trampoline. I keep seeing other people get results and I don’t see anything. My body felt the strain and I was fine w/ that. Since I forgot if I had extra energy, I’m going to start over w/ it. You mentioned the various programs to get an overall advantage. The Total workout will get me results and to tone and lose weight you say? When I saw the different programs/dvd’s I noticed they were the same, is that true? Do the programs have the same exercises but in different order to help the different areas of the body? They all seemed the same. I hope you can guide me through this. I think Theresa is genius, and I want to see some results or feel them. thanks for your time.
