Visual Impact For Women Review – Is Rusty Moore’s Program Really Any Good?
So I talk a lot about the Visual Impact workout routines on this site. Why? Because they are simply the best I have found … period. Having said that though, this does have it’s limitations which I will share with you. This review is going to outline the main aspects to the workout and give you a sneak peak at what’s included.
One great aspect to Visual Impact for Women is that the author gets it — he knows the look that most women are after and he knows how to teach women to achieve that look.
As you may know, the theme of the Visual Impact for Women workout is “Slim, Sexy, Fit & Feminine” and if there’s one thing the Rusty Moore is good at, that is being ultra-focused and laser targeted on achieving this look. If you want to get ripped and real muscular then this is not the program for you.
His first full-blown workout to hit the market was Visual Impact Muscle Building for men. This workout was far from typical. Instead of focusing on getting as “buff” as humanly possible or packing on more muscle than you’d know what to do with, the real goal was to get lean and muscular.
After seeing that this was such a huge hit he realized the need to put out a quality workout purely for women, thus the birth of Visual Impact for Women.
Why trust this guy? He knows his stuff and he’s been laser-focused on this exact look.
“So after 4 years running the #1 resource online for getting the lean Hollywood Look … I wanted to take all of the cutting-edge information and collective knowledge gathered by this large mastermind group … and compile and it into the ultimate workout routine for women.” – Rusty Moore

Final Thoughts and Tip
Some ways to tweak this program to fit your needs needs
Table of Contents (Main eBook)
Introduction: Finally Someone is Listening!
Nobody seems to be listening to what the majority of women want. More women would rather look good in a bikini…than look like muscular fitness models. I GET this…yet most of the people in the fitness industry simply aren’t listening.
Chapter 1: Myth Busting
Sick of hearing that it impossible for you to gain too much muscle because you don’t have enough testosterone? I will discuss that and other myths told to women on a consistent basis.
Chapter 2: Is Cardio Really “Dead”?
Hollywood actresses use cardio like crazy to get fit for movie roles…so why do so many fitness experts claim that cardio is dead? I’ll explain in detail why cardio is an amazing tool to get a slim and sexy physique and why circuit training isn’t always all it is cracked up to be.
Chapter 3: High-Rep Training
Why women have been pushed towards high rep training to “tone” the muscles. What actually happens in the body when training for high reps. A study which shows that high reps tend to add muscle mass about as well as low reps.
Chapter 4: Low-Rep Training
What happens in the body during low rep training. Why low reps (done properly) are the ideal way to get a lean and slim physique that looks great in a bikini.
Chapter 5: Training to Failure
Why training to failure or training short of failure makes a HUGE impact on how your muscle look. This is one of the most overlooked variables in all of women’s fitness.
Chapter 6: Free Weights, Machines, and Body Weight Training
The benefits and drawbacks of each type of resistance (free weights, machines, body weight training, and resistance bands). Why the ideal workout uses a combination of various forms of resistance.
Chapter 7: Yoga
Great for mobility, but not the fastest route to a slim and lean physique. Why I believe this should only be considered a supplementary form of exercise, not a way to stay slim and lean year-round.
Chapter 8: Adding Muscle to Burn More Body Fat?
Why putting on muscle to lose body fat is a slow indirect approach to getting lean. I’ll will also discuss how adding muscle burns an insignificant amount of calories per day.
Chapter 9: Dieting Challenges for Women
Why the conventional methods you have been taught will make fat loss close to impossible. Women have it tougher than men…but here is a strategy that works well.
Chapter 10: Dieting Strategies in Detail
How many calories should you eat per day? What ratio of carbs, protein, and fat? How many meals? Strategies for women who like to eat every few hours. Strategies for women who like to eat fewer, but larger meals.
Chapter 11: Dieting for an Event
How dieting for an event like a vacation or wedding is much different than the way you would normally eat. Need to lose 5-10 pounds in less than 3 weeks? I outline a tough but extremely effective plan for that.
Chapter 12: A Flat-Out Effective Cardio Workout
An incredibly effective 30 minute cardio routine that drops fat on demand. Ways to adjust it to complement your resistance training routine.
Chapter 13: How to Customize Your Routines
Why there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all workout solution. Mastering what works best for your body is what is going to help you look exceptional in any situation.
Chapter 14: The “Go-To 2 Day Split” – Gym Routine
I will outline the current routine that I use with my girlfriend. Although we train together, I use different schemes to add muscle while she slims down. This is a great starting point to base your customized routine on.
Chapter 15: The “3 Days Per Week” – Gym Routine
Here is a routine you can use if you are only able to hit the gym 3 days per week. This uses a special 3 day split which makes a lot of sense once I explain the principles.
Chapter 16: Setting Up a Simple & Effective Home Gym
I’ll explain some creative ways to train with very little equipment (adjustable bench and dumbbells). As long as you get the set and rep schemes correct, you can get in tremendous shape at home.
Chapter 17: The “Go-To 2 Day Split” – Home Routine
This is the routine to use if you are able to train 4 days or more per week at home. This is the recommended base routine to use from home, that you can customize over time and use year after year.
Chapter 18: The “3 Days Per Week” – Home Routine
This is a simple but effective routine for women who simply want to workout on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. This is best for women who are extremely challenged for time.
Chapter 19: How to Lose Muscle Mass on Purpose
Legions of women have muscular thighs and calves that they would like to make slim and defined. This is common especially with women who have been given poor training advice. Despite this being a taboo subject, I’m going to give you a strategy that works.
Chapter 20: Final Thoughts
Working hard for 5-6 months and then being in “maintenance mode” the rest of you life. A simple way to look and feel good for a lifetime.
There is one (update – two) real negative that I can identify — the diet menu and the fact that there is not a physical/hard copy available.
I’m sure that some actually like being told exactly what to eat. You are told how many calories you need and from the types of foods they should come from but you are not given an exact menu. Honestly, this is barely a negative since it’s a workout and not a diet but I thought you should know.
What is cool and makes up for this is the chapter on how to diet for an event. It’s pretty cool.
My Final $0.02
If you are in the market for a workout routine, cardio routine and expert nutrition advice, this is it. I’ve got a copy of the entire system because I have the Visual Impact Muscle Building edition and I can assure you that there is nothing online like this for women. To me, whether or not you should try this workout or not is a no-brainer — it’s awesome.
After just a few months of following Rusty’s routines, you will be in the best shape of your life. From then on it’s just a matter of maintaining.

For $47, about half the price of one session with a personal trainer, it is well worth it. I wouldn’t even consider getting a different workout, Visual Impact for Women comes with my highest recommendation.

Definitely a great program. The cardio booklet alone is outstanding and could probably be sold as a standalone product. Obviously the main manual along the the exercise demos are excellent as well.
