About One and Done Workout

If you are spending hours at the gym and not seeing results, One and Done Workout might be for you. Perhaps you aren’t even headed to the gym yet, but don’t have the time to spare to get in a lengthy workout. Again, One and Done Workout might offer a solution. 

How Does it Work?

One and Done Workout is a program that claims to “get you fit” in just seven minutes a day. Founded by Meredith Shirk, the founder of Svelte Training, this service claims to get you fit by reducing the amount of time you spend working out. Shirk is a personal trainer who has been working with clients for over twelve years.

It flies in the face of the traditional notion that half an hour of moderate exercise three to four times a week is the way to lose weight and fight inflammation. Shirk claims instead that moderate exercise might create more inflammation and stress in your body, making it harder for you to stay in shape in the long term.

One and Done is based on research done by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, and the Institutes of Health. It includes fat burning exercises that integrate proper hormone functioning. Recognizing that hormones can be to blame for everything from poor sleep to chronic stress to overeating, the workouts put your metabolism into overdrive. They are bodyweight exercises that require no special equipment and no prior experience.

The exercises are known as Sprint Interval Training Workouts. They involve 20 seconds of intensive exercise and then a minute of active rest. You alternate your workouts until you reach seven minutes - and that time includes your warm-up and cool-down.

In this process, your temperature stays a little higher than normal, and your lungs, hearts, and other organs work harder as they try to recover energy from the workout. You release fat-burning hormones for up to forty-hours later. This program is a fourteen-day program that’s offered entirely online and modeled after Shirk’s in-person training programs.

When you purchase the program, you get high-definition videos showing you how to do the exercise combinations every day. You can complete the program numerous times, and it doesn’t involve strict dietary restrictions.

Cost and Price Plans

One and Done costs $47. For this price, you get 14 days of follow-along S.I.T. workout combinations, along with detailed demonstration videos and an exercise combination manual pdf. For an added bonus, you also receive a ten-day keto restart meal plan, and 101 detoxifying red and green smoothie recipes.

Customer Service

It can be tough to get ahold of anybody at One and Done unless you purchase the program and have a member login. If you purchase the program, you do receive access to 24/7 support and technical assistance. Otherwise, you can email the company or call them at (317) 204-4848. The program also comes with a sixty-day money back guarantee.

Does the One and Done Workout Work?

This program claims to be backed by research from the American Heart Association, the American Stroke Association, the Norwegian University of Science, and even Time Magazine. Time Magazine, in fact, published a study in April of 2016 claiming that interval workouts are ideal for people at all fitness levels.

One and Done has plenty of positive 7 minute workout reviews, both via YouTube and from other blogger’s pages. They claim that One and Done is an easy, logical way to fit in a workout no matter where you are or what your current fitness level may be. Some people claim that they could learn these same exercises through free videos, but the difference with One and Done is that it teaches instructions so that you don’t injure yourself while working out.

Competitors and Alternatives

One and Done certainly isn’t the only program claiming to show results in only seven minutes of exercise. There are many free or inexpensive options that claim to get the same results in minimal amounts of time.

For example, the Johnson & Johnson 7 Minute Workout App is a customizable, well-rounded app that is entirely free. It offers twelve different thirty-second exercises, with five seconds of rest in between. This is designed for both beginners and athletes, and syncs with your iPhone. You receive guidance on all of the exercises along the way.

Wahoo 7 Minute Workouts is another popular app. This app, however, doesn’t show you how to do exercises, which could increase your risk of injury. If you want to learn how to do the exercises or log your workouts, you have to pay extra fees.

Finally, Yoga Wake Up is another popular app alternative, but as the name implies, it’s not designed to get you sweating or wheezing. This app can still improve your overall fitness, but it does have a fee (just $5.99 per month) and does not claim to boost fat loss. It is simply designed to improve overall wellness.

Where to Buy?

Currently, the only place to purchase One and Done is from the company website. Once there, you will be shown multiple payment options and given the opportunity to add other extras, like diet manuals, to your basket before checking out.

Is One and Done Worth It?

If you’re looking to get the benefits of forty-five minutes of exercise in just seven minutes, One and Done Workout is certainly worth a try. While the program definitely has its skeptics, it has offered tangible results to thousands of people dissatisfied with the disappointment of traditional exercise. With a sixty-day money back guarantee, you really have nothing to lose.

Bonus gift? No, BOGUS gift!!

March3, 2020

I ordered this program and upon my confirmation I was greeted with a welcome video. It was lengthy and after spending the time watching it concludes by giving you a bonus gift (shows a cute little gift box image with a bow) called 1minute abs. It entices you with this neat little video that she will throw in for free, AND without any further purchase she will give you 7 days free of a community Facebook board to interact with others on progress or questions you may have. After the seven days, you will be enrolled on a monthly basis with an obligation of $49.00/mo. I called the company immediately after ordering my program and told the agent I did not want the 7day trial. He told me that the 1 minute abs would now cost me $15.00. Well that is not a gift, and it certainly is not free! I expressed my disappointment with the BS this company is putting out there, and feeling insulted and taken advantage of, I cancelled my whole order. It is so not worth damaging potential good customers by lying to them, causing them to leave bad reviews about you!

Don't buy this workout scam. After one week they start charging you an UNAUTHORIZED $49.00. This fact doesn't show up anywhere on their emails, or when I tried signing up again to see if I missed something, there's nothing anywhere that says they'll start charging you after you've paid the $29. And they charge it on a Friday, so you can't call their Customer support line, which is only open M-F 9-5pm. On their website, they don't even have BILLING under Account, which all legitiamte companies do. It's a SCAM. And this type of business tactic is why America is where it is today. SCAMS, LIES, BAD BUSINESS TACTICS.

I ordered this program, and after it was confirmed a video plays welcoming you to your program. It then offers a “free bonus gift” that she claims she will give to you, AND she will throw in a seven day community board trial period. After the seven days you will be charged $49.00/mo. I called the company immediately and told them I do not want the 7day trial community access, but I wanted the 1minute abs program. I was then told it would cost $15.00 if I did not take the 7 day trial. I told the agent that the whole thing is a scam. You can’t “gift” something to your customers then turn around and charge them for it. With that, I cancelled the whole program. Very insulting of these companies pulling these stunts!

Careful not to get caught in the subscription scam

July3, 2019

No workout is worth it if the company sneakily turns a one-off purchase into a surreptitious subscription that ends up costing you hundreds. Best to avoid these guys unless or until they become more honest and open and don't try to ensnare customers with hidden charges.

@ LuLu Bee did this company do this to you?

July 29, 2019

Yes! It did, though, with the help of my credit card company, get a full refund of the sneaky charges and ended my relationship with them entirely.

July 29, 2019

Yes! I was able to get my money back eventually, but it was after three months of shelling out money I'd not signed up to pay.

August 30, 2019

What did you think of the workout program? Did you lose any weight or inches? I had wondered if there was a monthly fee attached. Guess your review answers that. What is the subscription fee?

October 12, 2019

They specifically addressed that it was a onetime purchase. Def disappointing if that's not the case

October 20, 2019

The same thing happened to me. These people are very dishonest and nasty when you call. I was able to get my money back thanks to my credit card company. I filed a claim against them for fraud.

November 17, 2019

I was considering purchasing the program, but was confused when the description says "14 Days of Follow Along S.I.T. Workout Combinations". I was skeptical about the $29 being for only 14 days, and then you would be billed for additional time. They should be more transparent about what the $29 fee covers and what the additional costs / options are.

January 13, 2020

I signed up for what I believed was $29.00 it was taken from my bank account. I did receive an invoice, so no problem. Now I see another charge taken from my bank with no authorization from me and I do not know what it is for. I see scam here!

February 22, 2020

I just wrote anothe review, same issue. SCAM! No where did it say they would be charging me again, and for $49, and they charged it on a Friday, so you can't call customer service until Monday. I bet lots of people don't check their credit cards every day, or get notices when a charge is posted wihtout your approval or presence with the card. BAD BUSINESS! Terrible!
