I haven't done JM's program, but I have tried 10 Minute Trainer, and to be honest, I was bored with it before the 30 days were up. Also, although it claims to require only ten minutes a day, the program really calls for you to do 3 of the 10-minute videos each day, so it's a 30 minute a day program (35-40, really, once you factor in warm-up, cool-down, and switching discs between workouts). Since there are only 5 workouts, and you're doing 3 of them every day, it gets old really, really fast.
The workout itself was good, and I worked hard for the 30 minutes, but I just couldn't stick with it.
The key to any workout programme is the quality and not the quantity which means that intensity trumps duration unless you are training for endurance. Ten minutes is adequate time for a quality workout if the intensity is present and applied. Many resistance band based workout do require some sort of anchor point for some of the exercises however other similar movements can be substituted.
You can find similar programmes for free which will work as well if not better than either of these. It is interesting that both of these are promoted by people who have no formal credentials as trainers however only Tony Horton will publicly admit it.
It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I've never used either program but from what I understand, the 10 Minute Trainer need a door in order to use the resistance bands. I've seen the guy that used to be on ET on the infomercial have the bands attached to his garage door. I would think JMBR is more intense that 10 Minute Trainer.

I am considering getting Tony Horton's 10 minute trainer. Has anyone compared this to Jillian Michaels Body revolution?
