All About Hoe Downs
Although Prevention Magazine’s June 2003 article called this movement the “2 minute Energy Boost”, T-Tappers call it “Hoe Downs“. And even though this movement is probably one of the fastest ways to boost energy and eliminate what’s commonly called the “afternoon slump”, it does a lot more
A Sugar Buster
Hoe Downs can effectively drop glucose levels quickly. Test results verified an average drop in glucose from 62 to 85 points upon completion and an average rate up to 100 points at 10 minutes post completion. Talk about a sugar buster! But even though Hoe Downs can help patients with diabetic concerns, they’re also great for anyone who wants to burn off excess glucose before it converts to fat.
Increase Mental Clarity
T-Tapp Workout’s Hoe Downs movement has also been known to: • Increase mental clarity. • Help control hormonal mood swings often experienced with PMS and menopause. • Increase brain balance. Hoe Downs involve simultaneous left/right brain, mind-to-muscle movement. Because of this, initial coordination doing the single count lift/touches from front to side can be challenging, but within a week cognitive processing significantly improves. It is important to exercise the brain as well as the body for better quality of life! Hoe Downs are aerobic and, like all T-Tapp movements, they use full fiber muscle activation to work your whole body – legs, backside, core, lats and abs all at once! Try Hoe Downs once or twice a day and see what they do for you!

Why You’ll Love the T-Tapp Senior Fit Workout by Charlotte Siems of T-Tapp
Senior Fit. Does the name bring up the image of a rockin’ workout that reshapes your body and helps you lose inches fast? No? Well, I’m here to tell you that’s just what I’ve experienced with this workout.
To show you why you’ll love T-Tapp’s newest workout Senior Fit, let me share my experiences with it. I’ve done it—a lot—between two T-Tapp events with many workouts, a certification event with literally hours of doing Senior Fit, taking notes on it and observing a dozen trainers doing it, and months of doing the workout on my own in preparation for my own certification to teach it.
Senior Fit gives me the fastest results of any T-Tapp workout I’ve done. Seriously. I can do a couple of Senior Fit workouts in a week and start noticing the results. It’s especially good at smoothing my hip pads and flattening my tummy. Surprisingly, it makes me feel strong—fast.
I feel energized, not exhausted, when I’m done with a Senior Fit workout. That’s big for someone with a tendency towards adrenal fatigue.
Senior Fit creates visible reshaping. At a T-Tapp retreat where we did only Senior Fit, my waist was cinched in to the point that I actually saw it in the mirror after a couple of days.
Senior Fit is slower, more mindful movement so it’s “easier” to hold the form and positions, therefore creating muscle activation for results.
Senior Fit feels doable, not overwhelming. The breaks between moves keep it from feeling too hard, and every little bit of motivation helps.
Senior Fit has variations on moves (and some new moves) that I really like. There’s no flat back in Primary Back Stretch. T-Tapp Twist Stretch has no “drop down.” Scarecrow/Ski is actually fun!
Senior Fit is effective even when you do parts of it. I see results even from doing segments rather than the whole thing. And believe me, I almost always do only part of it since it lasts an hour (although Senior Fit Tempo 4 lasts 47 minutes, and it’s my preferred version).
Senior Fit has water breaks between each move. Far from “cheating,” frequent water breaks help you reset and recover so you get more out of the next move. Not to mention the fat-burning and lymph-moving benefits of water.
Senior Fit was designed to help with adrenal fatigue. All of the hunching and stretching thumbs and other bits of form hit the thoracic area of the spine to help drain toxins and improve adrenal function.
Senior Fit offers some variety, with a floor warmup workout and two versions of the actual workout.
Other workouts are being planned for the near future, using Senior Fit principles. I know that one of them has a theme of “sexy after 40” and that will probably convince some people of the benefits of this amazing workout. But why wait? You can get a head start on all the goodness now!
