Triple Fat Loss Matrix

This actually looks like it'd be a nice little add-on to a workout:

But--and I feel like an utter bitch saying this--but I sort of think this dude's physique detracts from his credibility. I really kinda hate myself for even thinking along those lines, because maybe he has an underactive thyroid or has been taking steroids for an injury, or maybe he just doesn't personally care about having a body fat percentage in the single digits. My point is that just because a trainer isn't all ripped and buff doesn't mean s/he doesn't know what s/he's doing, and in my head I know that. But viscerally I'm more inclined to accept guidance from someone who looks the part, if you know what I mean.

What do you all think?

PS If you don't want to watch the video, the matrix consists of 8 1-arm squat presses each side, 50 jumping jacks, and 8 lunge presses (you do a front lunge then kinda explode into a push press on the return, almost like a split jerk in reverse.) You then rest 20 seconds, and repeat 6-15 times.
