Evolution 20 is a recently released 60-day exercise and nutrition program created by former model, television presenter, writer and fitness expert, Christine Bullock.
Its combination of fast-paced cardio and gentle but intense body-weight exercises will enable you to boost your metabolism and blast fat as you tone up, increase your strength and enhance your balance, speed and flexibility. All this, in around 20 minutes a day and approximately half that for the abs segments!
The variety this program provides ensures boredom won’t be an issue. And, because the sessions are short, you’ll have no excuse to skip working out.
In this review, we will look at what Evolution 20 entails. We will also cover the 10 workouts and their run times, the included fitness tools and purchaser opinions.
Who is the Evolution 20 Workout For?
Evolution 20 caters to exercisers of every level. If you are intermediate level, watch and copy Christine. Those who are new to exercise can follow along with the trainer who does the modified version for beginners. People of advanced level requiring a tougher workout can follow along with the trainer who demonstrates moves suitable for experienced exercisers.
What do the Evolution 20 Workouts Consist Of?
The program is made up of two progressive phases, each containing five workouts. The individual sessions are around 20 minutes long, making Evolution 20 a viable fitness solution for busy people seeking a fast way to transform their body and health for the better. The range and variety of exercises will keep you interested and enable you to grow your fitness and avoid it plateauing.
Undertaken regularly, Phase 1 will enable you to strengthen your core and shrink your waistline. You will also become stronger and tone the areas many of us consider to be our primary trouble zones. By the time you finish this phase, your body fat percentage will be lower, and you will see an improvement in your muscle tone.
During Phase 2, the physical changes will become even more apparent. Your body fat level will further reduce, your muscles will be more defined, and your athleticism will be greatly improved.
The exercises you will be doing encompass Cardio, HIIT, Pilates, Plyometrics, Yoga, and more. Included are exercises professional athletes undertake to improve their fitness, muscle tone, strength, speed, and agility.
The bonus two-phase ab workouts are challenging, but worth the effort. Do them regularly, and your reward will be flat, defined abs that you will be happy to show off in a crop top or bikini.

Evolution 20 Summary
If you’ve been looking for an exercise program that is challenging enough to make you perspire, but brief enough that you can make it through the workouts and find time to do them even on the busiest of days, Evolution 20 by Christine Bullock fits the bill.
Unlike some fitness programs, this one actually does cater for all levels of fitness. The workouts are categorized very accurately, with their difficulty increasing at just the right rate for new and intermediate exercisers to quickly and safely improve their fitness and body shape.
Liking the trainer can be the difference between sticking with an exercise program or giving up. Christine is encouraging without being over-the-top or in-your-face, and she is likable, without being cheesy.
Another plus with Evolution 20 is that other than a mat to make your floor workouts more comfortable, no equipment is necessary. The workouts don’t require a lot of space either, so you can pretty much do them anywhere you can play the DVDs.
