Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes is a book which was written by the late Teresa Tapp in which she laid out her basic methodology for her very effective Fat Loss Workouts. The inspiration and instruction inside of it make a terrific weight loss workout plan

It is full of

  • inspirational stories, 
  • before and after pictures of many people who have experienced great results with her program, and 
  • practical, helpful instructions on how to do each of the exercises in her Basic Workout Plus (which takes only 15 minutes) plus the 
  • exercises in her Total Workout (which consist of all the moves in Basic Workout Plus, and several additional exercises which bring the workout up to 50 minutes in length). 

The hard copy of the book also comes with a bonus DVD with some additional sample exercises not found in the book.

Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes--Who Can Benefit from it?

While Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes is great for anyone looking for a workout that actually works to help slim down, it is targeted toward women. It is especially good for those who want to learn about T-Tapp workouts, and how to get the most out of them. It is such a great fat-burning workout!

It is also perfect for anyone looking for inspiration and motivation. The stories accompanying the many before and after pictures contain many non-scale victories. If you’d like help getting motivated to do consistent, regular workouts, It is really great for amping up your fitness motivation!

It is also ideal for people who want to not only get the benefits of regular workouts but who want to get visible results. So often we women of a certain age and above find that just eating less and moving more is no longer enough to lose fat. T-Tapp workouts actually help many of us see inch loss after finding the usual cardio-and-weights path found in so many gyms and home exercise videos just not cutting it.

Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes--What is Included?

Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes is more than just inspirational stories, though. It goes into great detail with instructions on how to do each signature move in the T-Tapp Total Workout.

And for those who purchase a new copy of the book, it comes with a DVD of some additional sample exercises, as I mentioned above.

T-Tapp Diet Plan

Though it’s quite a simple plan, Teresa Tapp reveals her philosophy on healthy eating and dieting, and it is a very freeing way of thinking and eating. She divides foods into two simple groups:

  • God-made (whole foods closest to the form in which God made them) and 
  • man-made (processed foods, foods with additives, etc.). 

Then she encourages you to choose for yourself how often to have days in which you eat only God-made foods, versus man-made foods. She explains this in the book in more detail.

T-Tapp Workout Features & Benefits

Some of the great things about T-Tapp workouts, apart from the great inch loss results so many of us have achieved through using them, are the fact that:

  • They can be done in a very small space–just 4’ by 4’, which means you can do them in a tiny hotel room. (I’ve actually done the Basic Workout Plus in a bathroom stall while at a long conference, to help alleviate the back pain and stiffness I used to have before starting the low vitamin A diet).
  • Unlike most forms of conventional exercise, these moves do not cause inflammation. This quality of keeping inflammation down helps with fat loss.
  • They are energizing. When I was dealing with symptoms of chronic fatigue in the past, other workouts, if done in the morning, would cause me to need an afternoon nap. With T-Tapp, I actually had an increase in energy all day.
  • They help boost mood. I LOVE a quick win, and have noticed that so many things that might normally irritate me or stress me out were no longer such a big deal after doing one of the T-Tapp workouts. The stresses of homeschooling 6 kids are real–but when I do my T-Tapp workout early in the day, I feel like it helps me be a better, happier, calmer mom. I like that feeling!
  • Because it does take very little space for a workout, you can do a T-Tapp workout almost at any time that you have 15 minutes to an hour available.
  • You can also use the move called T-Tapp Hoe Downs after eating a meal with sweets to help reduce both your blood sugar levels and also your cravings if you tend to overdo eating sweets. This can be done easily in a bathroom stall even at a restaurant. (Don’t ask how I know this!)


How to use Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes

As I mentioned above, the book is a great read if you’re looking for inspiration.

But its value deepens when you use the detailed tutorials for the workouts. These are very detailed, with multiple photos. With T-Tapp, form is everything. If you want good results, you will want to be sure to use good form.

Though the book could be used alone, I think it is best to use it as a supplement, along with watching the instructional workout videos. I believe this will help to allow to you get the most out of the workouts.

In the past, you would have needed to buy a copy of either Basic Workout Plus or Total Workout to do this. But for now, you can actually follow along with this video of T-Tapp Basic Workout Plus–Instructional Tape 1.

You will want to do the workout along with this video about 3-5 or even more times–however long it takes for you to feel like you understand the instructions and are following along with good form.

Once you reach that point, you can then do the streaming version of the regular 15-minute T-Tapp Basic Workout Plus.

When you’re ready to learn the rest of the Total Workout, you can find the Instructional Video for T-Tapp Total Workout-instructional Tape 2 here, and the regular, longer version of the T-Tapp Total Workout here.

When you get the book, it will help to explain the process further, including instructions on how to do a T-Tapp “Boot Camp,” which helps bring you the fastest results.

Why get Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes?

Because this workout REALLY works!

I am living proof. After giving birth to 6 children, being sedentary through many of those years, and then trying T-Tapp (actually to alleviate lower back pain), I lost 41 inches in about 10 months, without changing my diet (though I did follow these tips for how to make a coconut milk smoothie for weight loss. Actually, I made a daily smoothie very much like this strawberry banana smoothie recipe (though I often used blueberries).

Thankfully I used a good printable body measurement chart, or I don't think I'd have realized it.

It's an amazing fat loss workout!

And I have maintained the loss, even though I am not always perfect about working out as often as I probably should, or always sticking to my ideal eating plan. (Link to Fat Loss workouts 2).

T-Tapp Workout Benefits:

I mentioned some of these benefits before, but I cannot repeat these enough.

T-Tapp workouts help:

  • Reduce inches
  • Align the spine
  • Stretch muscles
  • Strengthen muscles and
  • Relieve pain caused by a weak core (as was my case).

When should I read Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes?

You can read it before, during or after starting your T-Tapp Journey. But if you read it now, you will get the most benefit from your efforts.

When should I buy Fit and Fabulous in 15 Minutes?

If you want a brand-new copy of the book which includes the bonus DVD, I recommend buying the first copy you can find of it.

Why?

Because not only has Teresa Tapp, its author, passed away, but she died intestate.

Because she did not leave a will, her company has been in probate for an extended period of time. It's been such a long and drawn-out process that not only has the domain expired for the T-Tapp site, but it seems another business has taken it over.

I’m not sure if the company will ever come back, her estate seems to be taking so long to go through probate (if it is even still in probate?).

And I have no reason to think the book will ever be reprinted, sadly.

So there are a finite number of books available, and when the new ones are gone, they will likely be gone for good (or sellers will charge an arm and a leg for them, sigh).

But as of this moment, new copies are still available at a reasonable price. You can get your copy here.
