CT-50 Key Product Details
CT-50, first and foremost, means “Cross Training 50.” The 50 in the name then refers to the 50 workout session configurations formed by a mix and match of 96 different exercises. The main guiding principle of CT-50 is the use of various athletic movements (i.e. instead of lifting weights) that progresses in difficulty as your body advances in its development; this, in turn, offers your body enough challenge to keep developing.
The CT-50 program is created by Tyler Bramlett, otherwise known as the “Garage Warrior.” As you can gather from the nickname, he specializes in home workouts and functional fitness instead of the typical weight training regimens. As for his credentials, he’s just an average guy who came into the industry relatively late (and out of necessity) compared to other famous trainers but he does have Russian Kettlebell Instructor certification, Kettlebell Functional Movement Specialist certification, and Crossfit Level 1 Trainer certification while being a USAW (USA Weightlifting) Performance Coach.
CT-50, in particular, is a “living proof” product born out of Tyler’s own experimentations and experiences in cross training with his own body. Quality “living proof” products (with this program fitting that bill) have a track record of being very effective because they reach beyond theory and go to what is proven to work in real life.
With regards to the product, the most glaring highlight is the program’s “Progressive Movement Technology.” It’s a fancy way of saying cross training that gets more and more difficult. Beyond the fancy branding though, CT-50 is a cross training methodology that offers more fun than lifting weights, provides enough challenge to keep your body progressing, utilizes body movements that minimize the need for expensive equipment, and grants additional health benefits like flexibility and athleticism that are not attainable through traditional fitness training and weight loss regimens.
Another highlight of this product is the “Video Follow-Along Workouts” which use video coaching instead of simple exercise demonstrations. With video coaching, Tyler coaches while his colleagues and students go through the workout and demonstrate the exercises. You can see Tyler correcting posture, dishing out tips, and motivating his pupils. While if this was an exercise demonstration, you’ll see Tyler simply performing all the workouts and it wouldn’t be as effective as a teaching tool. A “thumbs up” is definitely well-deserved for this product with the video coaching choice.
For our last highlight, we really think that the 20 minute workouts would benefit a lot of people, especially in today’s modern society that is seemingly always in a hurry. 20 minutes per workout session at 3 sessions a week equates to 1 hour a week; that’s right, 1 hour a week. On top of that, the minimal use of equipment means you can work out at the convenience of your own home, which also saves time traveling to the gym. That’s a lot of time saved for a very effective workout.

Our CT-50 Review Verdict
CT-50 is a breath of much-needed fresh air as the fitness industry drowns in a sea of male-centric weight training, faddish aerobic and dance fitness programs, and expensive Yoga classes. CT-50 is a perfect combination of intensity, fun, convenience, and affordability rarely found in other weight loss programs. One significant flaw prevents it from being a perfect product, though. All things considered, CT-50 still manages a very respectable 4 out of 5 stars rating.
As we said, CT-50 uses “Progressive Movement Technology,” which offers enough intensity and fresh challenges even as your body levels up. It’s a cross training methodology, which is innately fun and dynamic. The program also requires significantly little time (i.e. 20 minutes per session) and workout space, which is very convenient. Lastly, the program is affordable, both in terms of the package’s price and the program’s required equipment. Those are just some program plus sides that you can’t find anywhere else.
On the flip side, we are really concerned about the lack of customer support response – at least for the tests that we did. Without a solid customer support team, it would be hard to find answers or help should anything go wrong. However, the product is pretty detailed and straightforward that the risks of anything going wrong are minimal. But still, a more responsive customer support team would have helped.
Regardless, if cross training is something you want to try out, CT-50 is definitely worth a look. The lack of customer support can be easily overlooked for a program package that is this good and relatively affordable.
