Which Bikini Body Guide Should You Get?
With so many different diet and exercise options out there, it’s hard to find the best option for you. I looked and researched all over the internet to find the best, fastest, and safest workout programs for women. I decided to compare the two most popular bikini body workout programs to really see which one was the best. I purchased both products and tested them both for several months to really see which one was more effective. This review will give a thorough account of each program.
Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide
Kayla Itsines is a personal trainer from Australia who developed her own bikini body program. The Bikini Body Guide is a program of workouts and a diet plan to get you a bikini body in 12 weeks. The workouts and nutritional plan are in the form of a downloadable eBook. You download the program instantly and have it for life. The eBook includes clear pictures and instructions to show you how to do the workouts. This program does not offer any sort of money back guarantee.
Jen Ferruggia Bikini Body Guide
Jen Ferruggia has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Exercise Movement Science, and she competes in fitness and figure competitions. She created a bikini body program based on her own experience of healthy eating, exercise, and strength training. Her Bikini Body Guide is also a diet and workout program that is available for download. The download package includes guides as well as videos. The videos supplement the workout guide so you can follow along with the videos to correctly perform the exercises. This program gives you a bikini body in 60 days. If you don’t enjoy the program or don’t see results, the program offers a 60-day money back guarantee.
Kayla’s workouts are done seven days a week, and each workout is about 30 minutes long. To work out, you follow the eBook and each workout will differ from week to week to target specific areas for a great bikini body. You can work out at home or at gym, but at either location, you will need specific gym equipment to do the workouts. The gym equipment needed is a foam roller, dumbbells, a barbell, a kettlebell, a jump rope, a yoga mat, and a medicine ball.
Jen’s workouts are done four days a week, and each workout is about 45 minutes long. To complete these workouts, you can follow the guide or follow the videos to get a bikini body. You can also work out at home or at the gym, and you do need some specific equipment. You will need a chair or bench, dumbbells, and a resistance band.
If you purchase the entire Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide package, you will get a nutritional plan and a recipe guide. These are both sold separately from the workouts and are available for instant download. The diet plan is carefully explained in the nutritional guide and the recipe book includes two weeks’ worth of meals. The overall diet suggests eating only 1600 calories a day.
Included in Jen’s diet plan is a nutritional guide, a shopping list, and a supplements list. These are all included in the workout package and are not sold separately. All of the dietary guides are available as a download with the package. The diet is also very well explained, and you can take the grocery list to the store to stay on track while shopping. The supplements guide is for those who are interested in taking additional dietary supplements. It is a thorough list of supplements to take and supplements to avoid to aid your weight loss. The overall diet suggests eating only 2000 calories a day.

Kayla’s Program Cons
This program doesn’t include any instructional videos, so if you’re new to exercise, the exercise PDFs may not be explanatory enough.
To do the workouts at home, you need to purchase a lot of gym equipment.
No money back guarantee.
Expensive. This program is significantly more expensive than Jen’s program.
Jen’s Program Cons
Some equipment is required to do the workouts at home.
The digital eBooks and videos are available digitally. If you have technical issues, you may have some problems. Luckily, the downloads can be seen on different types of device platforms.
Both programs are great, and you will get a bikini body if you follow them. I personally preferred Jen Ferruggia’s program because it’s significantly cheaper and you’re allowed more calories every day. I also like that you’re only required to exercise four times a week. It’s nice to have a couple of days off. Whatever your goals may be, you can definitely get a bikini body!
