I love the MTC and the Shred. MTC is defintely easier to do at the gym, but can easily be dine at home. I substitute certain exercises that target the same muscle groups at home. I also modify the cardio. I do whatever will keep my heart rate up. I am half way (with more break days due to life) and am seeing results already. I can't wait to see what Day 30 will bring! I love this program and I hope that everybody has the chance to try it for themselves!

MTC is one of those wicked programs - you put in the work, and the results speak for themselves!
It is a program that is probably easier to do at a gym, but that being said, I've done it twice at home. You just need to tailor some of the exercises to the equipment that you own if you're going to do it at home.
Shred is also fabulous. A quick, challenging workout that really gets your heart pumping. For Shred, all the equipment you need is some weights - and to make the workout harder, just increase the weights!
Neither the book nor the video is very expensive, but you could always flip through the book at the bookstore before buying it, and you can preview Shred (and tons of other workout dvds) at: www.collagevideo.com
Those are not my feet. The scale aptly says: Go Run.

I don't think you will ever find anyone who was disappointed with either MTC or Shred. There is a "Results" thread on the team page where many people who did MTC reported there stats, like how much weight as well as how many inches lost.
MTC is definitely a challenge, but it's so worth it!
