T Tapp Review - Does This Fitness Program Actually Work? Are difficult exercises and customer complaints deal breakers?

Editor's Review: 3.1 / 5.0
T Tapp Review

We’re all searching for the right diet product. So we did one of our in-depth reviews on T Tapp, closely examining the ingredients, side effects, customer-service quality and scientific research. Furthermore, we sorted through dozens of user and customer responses we found online. At this point we compressed the facts and feedback we discovered to give you the bottom line.

EDITOR'S TIP: Combine T Tapp with a proven fat burner such as Leptigen for better results.

What is T Tapp?

To get started, T Tapp is marketed as “the workout that works.” It’s basically a DVD that can be used at home each day. The claims are, you will build bone density, sculpt your body, lose weight, rehabilitate joints and improve overall wellness. The workout lasts for 15 minutes, and it’s suitable for all people of all ages and fitness levels. Teresa Tapp is the instructor on the DVD. This product can be acquired through Amazon.

We’re not sure when T Tapp was first released, but it is easy to find online. There are some success stories posted on the official website and a complete bio is presented on Teresa Tapp (the fitness instructor), but read on…

Difficult Exercises – “A Consideration?”

First off, we are a bit concerned that not everyone will be able to complete the moves. According to our Research Editor, “Many customers have stated that the exercises involved with the T Tapp workout are too difficult and can lead to aches and pains. Clearly it’s challenging to stick with a fitness program if the exercises are difficult or painful.”

One person commented, “I did the instructional workout 4 times, and during that time my sciatica flared up and I had a level of back pain I haven’t had in 10 years. I also had sharp knee and ankle pain, even though I have no known health issues with my knees or ankles.”

“When I got the actual DVDs, I found them to be very difficult, especially if you have lower back or knee problems. I then tried to return them. They have a “NO RETURN POLICY,” be aware,” said another customer.

Numerous Customer Complaints!

You will find a number of customer complaints on dealer websites like Amazon. One person commented, “Not worth the money. Garage/basement quality DVD at department store prices! I’ve never felt so ripped off by a product.”

Another customer stated, “This did nothing for me. It was hard to follow. The movements weren’t well explained and were uncomfortable.”

The intensive research we’ve conducted has proven that if there is one facet of a workout program or diet system that is very bothersome (a painful/difficult exercise routine, too many customer complaints, high price) the real chances of long-term weight-loss are slim. So, if T Tapp does in fact lead to a high number of customer complaints, this could be a big problem.

The Science – Any?

At DietSpotlight, we prefer to see published science that supports the weight-loss product we’re reviewing. As for T Tapp, this fitness program may help with weight reduction to some degree since it is physical exercise. On the other hand, there are no clinical studies or test results found to support this fitness product’s claims.

The Bottom Line – Does T Tapp Work?

Now the moment you’ve been waiting for: our bottom line on T Tapp. Well, we like that it encourages regular exercise and there are some success stories posted on the official website. However, we have some reservations about this fitness program because it’s not supported by any clinical studies or research. Also, we’re definitely concerned about the difficult exercises because many customers have complained of injuries.

If you’d like to get rid of more pounds, then we advise you to choose a workout program or diet supplement that is backed by real science, does not cause any injuries or bodily harm and is supported by plenty of positive customer reviews.

Among the best products we’ve seen in 2016 is one called Leptigen. Its formula is a potent blend of four key ingredients, which have been shown in published scientific studies to help kick-start metabolism and increase fat loss. We can’t find any discussion of harmful side effects and user comments posted online reveal people are seeing great results.

The makers of Leptigen are so positive about their product they’re offering a Special Trial Offer, which is uncommon.

Losing weight is all the rage these days and among the products people use to lose weight is the T-Tapp. T-Tapp is a "cardio-kinetic" workout, which dieters could use to burn the fat in their bodies without having to lift any weight. The product is the brainchild of Teresa Tapp, an expert of rehabilitative fitness, educator and physiologist. T-Tapp is a complete work out. Your fitness level and goals determine the level to start with. Most people start with the Basic Workout Plus, T-Tapp more and Total Workout. Usually beginners invest time learning the form of T-Tapp and work out daily until they achieve their results. Two to three workouts in a week will help the dieter maintain the results they have achieved. The T-Tapp products come in a wide range and have different prices. They are usually packaged with a workout tape. Depending on the product you may be required to part with between $10.00 tup to $250.00. The product can be ordered over the Internet.


T-Tapp is a workout regime and thus there are no ingredients.

Product Features

The movements in T-Tapp are sequential and they can help the dieter achieve suitable functional alignment and restore metabolic function as. The T-Tapp technique has a number of principles, which are similar to those of Pilates and Yoga. The T-Tapp work out is a right, left brain, body and mind workout. One of the best attributes of T-Tapp is that it has the ability to enhance other workout programs. The sequence of compound muscle completely helps a person have better alignment, increased strength, a flexible spine, better lymphatic function, neuro-kinetic flow as well as a high metabolic rate. Since T-Tapp approaches fitness in a physical therapy manner, people that have concerns with their knee, hip, shoulder, back and neck are safe when working with it. The results offered by T-Tapp are both on the outside and inside. It does not just concentrate on burning fat and calories so that people can lose weight. T-Tapp is very rehabilitative as well especially to the knees and lower back. The workout also work all muscle layers, where there are attachments so that muscle density can be developed instead of just muscle bulk. Unlike other workouts, T-Tapp requires the dieter to maintain consistently just a few quality and effective movements.

    I would like to get some help, I bought the book “Fit & Fab in 15 min” but the pictures don’t show exactly what I need to know. That is in the beginning, How can I go from there!?. Its important the beginning; I don’t want to spring for any more cause I cannot get a way to find out what I need to know already. HOW can I talk to Teresa to ask my questions without it costing me $. I am poor, on disability.

    Try calling their offices for detailed instructional manuals or any supplementary information you could come to possess. They may have more free information, possibly.

    I’m surprised to read here that you think t-tapp is more for people who are physically fit than overweight people or the disabled. There is even a workout that can be done entirely while sitting down, for people who are unable to stand. Also the t-tapp more workout is designed for the less able among us … I think that is one of the really great things about t-tapp, that it is for people from the least able right up to fitness buffs …

    you suggested a certain tennis shoe to use and you tell me where I may obtain them?

    I have done all kinds of workouts; kickboxing, yoga, running, etc…T Tapp works better than them all. I just had my 8th baby and continued tapping all throughout my pregnancy with the BW+ (only 15 minutes a day! this works with my busy schedule). After the birth of baby I immediately had my pre pregancy measurements back. Now I’m doing the flat stomach exercises and seeing shrinkage after only a few days.

    I lost 9″ in two weeks only doing the 15 min.basic plus. And was down a size. There are workouts to choose from.if you have never worked out and are overweight.

    I have the book. Can I do the exercises without buying the tapes in a satisfactory way? Rate this at 4 right now!
    It is taking time but it is working!
    I want to mainly lose weight around my belly and hips.
    What are the best exercises for this?

    I am sorry that I did not start this program when I heard about it 10 years ago.I did pilates for 10 years the t tapp work out is fantastic and my back does not hurt anymore and I have had scoliosis all my life.


  • 8

    I love T-Tapp!!! Yes, it is difficult in the beginning and I am still learning. It beats the heck out of exercising for 45 minutes and not breaking a sweat. I feel great after just the 15 minute wrkout and I feel it deep down in my muscles. I am 51 and overweight. I am using the MORE program right now. I have tried everything and some of them were very expensive. I am selling all of my DVD’s and weights, etc and sticking with my Rebounder and T-Tapp!

    I love T-Tapp and swear by it. I did it years ago and went from a size 6 to a size 2. I stopped doing the workout (just being lazy) and went back up to a 6. I started gaining weight–now that I’m in menopause, so I started T-Tapping again. Although my weight has gone up 5 pounds and my dress size hasn’t changed, I feel healthier and more toned than ever! I’m glad to get back to this great exercise program.


  • 10

    I’ve done a lot of workouts in the past and have found nothing that works as well as t-tapp. Back in 04 I first purchased the program and lost a lot of weight. Unfortunately I also got lazy, quit working out and gained it all back. So here I am again starting over. Right now I’m on day 7 of a 14 day bootcamp and wondering why I ever stopped in the first place, just lazy I guess. 🙂 But anyway I just wanted to say that although I’m getting good results, it does take time and I never lost weight as fast as some of the testimonials on the website.


  • 11

    I love ttapp. I’ve done a lot of different dvd’s, and this is the most comprehensive for both toning,balance and strength. It’s different, seems like a combo of pilates, yoga- but it’s very challenging, even if you are an avid exerciser! If you are a beginner, don’t be intimidated. This workout will ‘progress’ with you. And you won’t be sore from this! Great support from customer service. Try it!


  • 12

    I have been doing ttapp since May 2011. I have lost over 16 inches and 20 pds. It is important to have good form. this also is not a “:free” card meaning , you cant eat like crap and expect to see amazing results. I have gained some inches but it is in places where muscle is being built. I look and feel better, I have not reached my goal yet but am getting there gradually. I love t-tapp and recommend it. I have knee and back problems and I am doing better! never had any problems with customer service EVER. they have been nothing but helpful.

    My knees swell up and kill me to the point of where I can’t walk easily after a t-tapp workout. Any suggestions?



    Try keeping form a little tighter and using your bum muscles to hold you; it takes weight off your knees. 🙂


  • 14

    where do i get it


  • 15

    I am skin brushing and taking PBA and Fibertox, what is the proper way to take these supplements? Which do you take first?


  • 16

    I lost 38 inches in 6 weeks using just the 15 minute basic workout plus from Ttapp. My average blood sugars went down 30 points.I have ordered some more of the tapes and do believe they are worth it. It is something you have to take the time to learn the proper form with- take time with the instructionals. The ttapp office office GREAT customer support, and there are free online forums where you can get encouragement from others doing the program. I am just a random overweight person who started the program in Sept.



    wow! congrats, wishing it wasw me! Now I’m really lost. Did bootcamp for two weeks like instructed and followed plan as suggested for 3x per week for my desired weight loss(8 weeks). Saw GAINS not loss of inches not many 3-4 total inches but no losses. Became discouraged and stopped for a month. Began basic workout plus this week. again. would appreciate ANY suggestions.,thanks

    Buyers beware. My wife purchased the video and was charged over $1,300. While eventually worked out with my bank through denying the charge, T Tapp customer service was very poor in responding to the situation with an alarming “not our fault” attitude. We were without use of the funds in our debit account for two days. Not sure they should be involved in eCommerce. Freshman business mistakes with lots of hassle for my wife and me and no courtesy from the company.



    I can certainly understand why this would frustrate you. I would suggest that if anyone has concerns, T-Tapp products can be purchased through Amazon, which is what I did. A full set of videos was around $80 (the total workout).

    I would hate to see anyone miss out on this amazing exercise program. Once I finally started doing it (several months of procrastination), I lost three! yes 3 inches around my belly, which was my biggest concern. I can only say — don’t be discouraged by how hard it seems. I was very out of shape and almost gave up when I first started. I have back and knee problems. Even the basic workout seemed to be an insurmountable mountain — I was clumsy and so exhausted. But I did what I could and now I zip through the exercises (it took me about 3 months before I coud do them easily). I have FINALLY started the 2nd instructional tape and will plan on starting to do the full Total Workout in 2 weeks. I’m excited to move into this next phase of my physical fitness. I’m 67 years old and I know that I will be able to continue to use T-Tapp as I age and that it will continue to help me keep mentally and physically fit. I highly recommend it!!!

    It is now November. I had a severe brake to my left leg late March. The bone has healed fine, but excercise and getting back into the swing of things worries this me. I’m afraid of hurting myself. I have about 30 pounds to lose. Is this program doable with my previous injury, how long do you think it will take me to get rid of 30 pounds? I was fairly active previously.

    I attended some ttap classes a couple of years ago in which I stressed the tendons in both shoulders. After finally going to an orthopedist, I had to have injectons in both shoulders for over a year. Then physical therapy. I was almost unable to use my arms for 2 years. Could not even do things like put on jacket sleeves. This is no exageration and was a serious injury. I am just now getting over this. It has affected my personal life and my work. Just thought you might want to know .

    I’m not associated with T-Tapp in any shape or form. It is a very peculiar workout, but it works. When my lower back is plaguing me, it brings some relief. There are some excercises on the site for free. Do the T-Tapp-Twist and the Hoe-Downs for a couple of days and see how you like it. If you are fairly fit you can also try the diva-derriere and the pretzel twist (great for the obliques).

    Just joined WW and would like to know the activity point value of TT Basic Workout Plus


  • 22

    I’m doing the 14 day bootcamp on instruction dvd 2 and dry brushing my skin. So far I have not seen any results with my arms and legs toning. I guess I’ll have to give it a full 6 months to see any results. Let’s hope it works for me. I kind of feel the same way as Rebecca regarding this workout. I don’t blame her for being disgruntled.



    how are your results now? I’m thinking of ordering.


  • 23

    I love this work out so much I am in the process of being certified. This is the work out that works! I have done many forms of aerobic exercises, weight lifting, running, biking etc. They were all good but were just missing something. I never realized it until I started T-Tapping. It is all about linear alignment! T-Tapp is not just a work out, it is a way of life. You can incorporated T-Tapping in everything you do all day. You don’t have to wait to go to a class! If you want that cookie–go ahead–just do a set of hoedowns to burn it off. This is a T-Tapp exercise that lowers your blood sugar 62-85 points in 3 minutes!! I have 3 classes going now and people are seeing results in as little as one week! The dentist I work for was in excrutiating pain and was on pain pills for his back. I got him T-Tapping and a year later he testifies to a pain free back as long as he T-Tapps at least 3-4 x’s a week. He is in pain the week he skips T-Tapping. I have a lady that dropped her blood sugar from 8.2 down to 6.1. The Doctor was VERY impressed. These are REAL people with REAL results. This is the Work out that WORKS without running yourself in the ground. It helped me take 5 minutes off my mile run! I can’ t say enough about this work out.


  • 24

    I have the Basic Workout Plus, Step Away the Inches, Hit the Floor, and most recently, the Ladybug Workout. Never have I once experienced the type of results that are flaunted on the T-tapp website. In fact, I did only T-tapp workouts in the month of March, concentrating on the Ladybug Workout, and my end result was that I gained a half-inch in my waist, lower abs, hips and each thigh. Not at all what I’d expected, and I am seriously disgruntled with this workout system.



    I would have to say I have had the same experience. I did TT for a full month and never even got close to having the results touted on the website – even so, I continue for remain forever hopeful and will try it again this summer when I’m on vacation.



    Call the T-tapp office, they can help you figure out why you are not getting results. Or check out the forum. Many times one does not see results if their form is not correct and or not taking days off.

    Don’t give up, you’ll see results if you keep trying as your form will start getting better. Also check out for trainers in your area who will help with form as well.



    I have had tremendous results with T-Tapp. There have been times when I saw no results. This time is what is called a plateau. I have learned how to break the plateau to continue to have amazing results. You should check out the forum and speak directly to a trainer.



    I hope you give this another try. I found it very complicated to learn but realized very quickly that the success is in following the instructions exactly. It’s so worth it. I can actually see my bones in my shoulders and all the flab underneath my arms is disappearing. And I eat more than ever. I think Teresa is a genius.

    I’ve been doing t-tapp for just over a month. I have many health issues and I was unable to do a good job starting off, although the last two weeks I did basic plus every day. I was completely astonished that I lost 9 1/2 inches! I really didn’t expect it since because of my health issues I wasn’t able to do a good job at all. I’m very excited! Also I’m sleeping for the first time in years …


  • 25

    I am overweight and can do t-tapp without a problem. It is about going to YOUR max not the instructors. To say that this is only for the already fit just tells me that you did not do enough research into the program. It is one of the few programs I can do being as overweight as I am and I feel myself getting stronger everyday. I would recommend you do a boot camp to see how it really works. It has even decreased and even diminished some of the pain I have felt daily for more years then I care to remember


  • 26

    I first bought the book, but it was too difficult to follow, so I went to her site and bought the DVD basic work out plus which came with a seminar which I enjoyed watching and learning from. I am on day 10 of boot camp. I can’t say I have lost inches yet, except my face neck area seems to be toning up. I have roto tear issues in my shoulder so can not do the work out to max and haved to do the best I can. It at least is building muscle and I expect over time I will see the inch loss and firmer thighs and arms. I plan to stick with this for the rest of this year doing the basic plus and trust things will happen. I do refer back to the proper form area to make sure I am doing it correctly. I think for some folks it is a time thing needing patience. I like I can get through a work out in less than 15 minutes and stick with it. I just wish my arm was in better shape to get the full impact with using them.


  • 27

    I do not find TTapp at all expensive. Especially if you buy their weekly discounts and/or if you can buy vhs instead of dvd (they close these out) The instructions are SO understandable and this can be done by ANY person – fit or totally out of shape/obese. You just work to your ability – which is something Teresa Tapp stresses over and over. Look at her instructional tapes and classes and you will find many overweight people doing this work out with her. Her voice is encouraging and she always gives form reminders. I have done MANY, MANY at home gym/trainer programs (inclusing Tony Horton who I would choose second!)and have lifted weights in the past and have never found so challenging a workout – mind and body. The key is to work harder and harder as you get stronger and to concentrate on form. I even had my PX 90 son 🙂 19 years old try some of the TTapp and he saw how challenging it is – and that guy is an in shape soccer player!



    what do you mean weekly discounts?


  • 28

    I used to do heavy cardio and weight workouts, which only made me hungrier and did not help much with my weight loss or toning. I have tried that for years on and off. I would get quick results, then a rebound gain. With t-tapp, I have seen slow but steady results, and my stomach has gotten smaller in a way that no other workout has been able to do. T-tapp does not raise my appetite much either. It looks easy, but it’s not. Even the beginner exercises can be challenging to former know-it-alls like myself. It works points in your body that most tradiitonal exercise doesn’t even touch. There is some science behind the breathing techniques and lymphatic processes this workout entails. My body is looking more like a dancer now, rather than a tomboy weightlifter like it used to.


  • 29

    There are different levels to T-tapp and so even if you are overweight like me, you can use the MORE program and lose 30 lbs and 45 inches in 6 months without much change in diet (if you eat mostly balanced foods). Also, you can get a 30% discount from coupon in back of her book and on 3rd Tuesdsays there are discounts on certain items. I’ve received my other DVDs discounted doing it this way.

    Hi! I have been doing t-tapp for years and would like to say that t-tapp is for every shape and size and NOT only for the fit. In fact this is the only workout I was able to do when I was over weight and most other workouts put too much strain on my body due to my weight.
