Mostly good
This was a challenging workout. My only complaint was the transitions to each move was too quick. I'm sure if I do this again I'll be able to keep up faster knowing what's coming.

Tough, Fast Paced, Whole Body Shake Down!!!
I did this workout as part of the 4 Week Full Body Fusion. It came the day after a Cardio HIIT workout, and I thought going in that it would be a perfect rest for my legs with the focus on abs, but nope... not the case! Legs AND abs were on FIRE! Hard but great workout though - I actually liked the fast pace because you really got your bang for your buck in only 30 minutes, and it felt like the time went faster. I would have liked an occasional opportunity to catch my breath and grab a sip of water, but it was not a big deal. Also, I found Jake to be very skilled at finding ways to creatively break down each move for you so you get what position your body should be in.

Very Challenging!
I like Jake's workouts because I feel they are effective, they're just always a bit too fast for me making it hard to get my form right. That said, I am definitely going to be sore tomorrow!

Great
I enjoyed it a lot, but take into account that you’ll do legs too! Thank you, Jake.

Not just Abs/Obliques but legs too!
I normally cannot keep up but Jake actually gave a few breaks on this one! Though this was labelled as Abs/Oblique, Jake brought in some signature legs and lower body exercises into the mix. Cool down was a bit fast and I had to look up once or twice to make sure I was doing the stretch correctly.

Jake's great!
Love Jake's energy and personality! His workouts are tough, fun, and great! I do sympathize with other reviewers suggesting that Jake give us just a beat to reset with each transition. I appreciate a hearty pace, we just need some transition beats. I need a second to make sure my curtsy is stable so I can properly "bow before the Queen" lol!!

Difficult but good workout
I struggled at some parts to keep up, specially legs, but it was a nice workout! Couldn't do the burpee because the camera focused too little on the modified version, which I was doing, and I did not understand what I had to do. But I leave the workout with a feeling of mission accomplished!

Too fast!
I didn't even have the time to understand which exercises I needed to do that he was already moving to the next.. Too fast and chaotic

day 2
moved too fast, especially during the burpee series. didn't like how the camera (esp during burpee series) would zoom in on one person during certain parts, forcing you to miss seeing what the modification was or vice versa for the advanced. a nice workout but wasn't presented well

Brutal! But super fun
I really liked this! I'm doing the 4 week full-body fusion and it was just as lively as yesterday's workout. Had me s w e a t i n g, which I loved and the moves felt doable, especially with the modifications. It is a bit fast paced but I did my best and it felt great. Thanks so much Popsugar!!

Drudgery
I didn't have fun at all with this one. Maybe he's just too advanced for me but I had a really hard time keeping up and didn't enjoy the moves. I didn't feel like they targeted the areas as well as he claimed.

Burn Baby Burn!
I enjoyed it Jake Thanks for the work you put in, to really challenge the the core. Don't think I didn't notice the new moves. The plank with the foot on top of the opposite foot. What a killer, however worth it.

Tough for a beginner
For a beginner, this was tough honestly more on my legs than on my abs only. But made it through!! I was surprised how Jake can just keep going...it's so motivating!!

Tough for a beginner
It was very challenging especially for a beginner. I had to take small breaks in between but overall it was one of my favorites! I could really feel the impact. Thank you!

Killing
It literally killed me. But also feels so good afterwards. My abs and obliques are literally DEAD but it's still a YES YES. I'm a beginner so there were times I had to stop but overall good workout.

I hate ab workouts...and I hate how much I loved this workout
I hate ab workouts in general, and to be honest, I find Jake's workouts so difficult that I'll often put them off until the end of the day because I know how hard it's going to be. This one was no exception, but I found the 30 minutes went quickly and I feel like I got a really effective workout. Thanks Jake!

Hard but great!
This is a killer workout but I felt great afterwards! And moves were creative as well. My only issue with Jake is he sometimes moves too quickly for me, so I don't always do as many repetitions.....which I guess is okay.

I’ve never worked out with him before and wasn’t sure what to expect. I was surprised at how challenging this workout was!

Jake always knows how to make you feel the burn
Though not my favorite popsugar trainer, I feel like his speed is a bit too fast. His workouts never disappoint, and I'm always left feeling like I got in a great workout. I know I'll be sore tomorrow.

Best Toning Workouts
I don’t know if it’s the pace, the repetition, or what....but somehow Jake always makes these simple moves absolutely killer. I’m ever amazed at his creativity in tweaking familiar stretches or toning exercises to get even deeper into your muscle groups for added burn!
Alli Tidwell @allibtidwell

Workout is challenging but the modifications are terrible
Nothing personal to the trainer, he has a wonderful personality.It felt repetitive and when it became hard to get my knees close the the ground the modifications did not help at all.

Getting more than what you pay for!
Honestly, I always worry about paying for a set like this for fear it won't be challenging enough to really be worth it but this is the intensity I was hoping for! Jake always delivers for those who have been doing Popsugar workouts for some time and want to keep progressing.
Maggie Calton @maggiecalton

He gets me everytime!
Every. single. time. I'm so naive with Jake's workouts and think something like "oh 30 minute abs/butt/legs" this will be a cute workout. But Jake does not joke around, this is serious business! Hurts and I love it!

Quite a challenge!
I still felt my thighs from day 1 so this was even more challenging and I noticed that my abs are basically non-exsistent. Hopefully it will be better once I come the second time around. The workout was fun nontheless and I'm looking forward to the next one with Jake.
