Editorial Reviews

NO TIME TO EXERCISE? We have the solution for you – the 10 Minute Solution! Instructor Cindy Whitmarsh has developed 5 truly targeted workouts for beginners, each one focused on a specific muscle group, and each one only 10 minutes. These compact, ultra-efficient workouts fit into even the busiest of schedules. Split them into 5 separate workouts, or mix and match to hit your own unique problem areas … or do all of them together for one total-body 50 minute workout!

* ABS - Only 10 minutes to tight abs … you really can do it! Cindy takes you through a series of targeted abdominal exercises to completely tighten, contract and contour your mid-section. You’ll really feel the burn, and you’ll definitely see the results!

* THIGHS - Thinner thighs are only 10 minutes away! These exercises are hand-picked from the most effective, proven routines – and anyone can do them! This set is jam-packed with thigh-tightening, hip-slimming moves that can dramatically re-shape your legs.

* BUNS - Who doesn’t want firmer, tighter buns? This ultra- effective program leads you through a series of time-proven exercises to really target that backside. Using a combination of simple standing and mat work, this workout can give you better buns in just 10 minutes a day!

* ARMS & SHOULDERS - Pick up those hand weights and get ready to sculpt and chisel that upper body! This non-stop routine hits the entire upper arm from every angle for sexy, shapely and totally firm upper arms and shoulders.

* BONUS POWERSTRETCH - This segment is perfect to do after a workout, or after a long, stressful day. Treat yourself to a total-body stretch and keep your muscles long, flexible, relaxed and healthy!

This is one of a series of DVDs which offer five 10-minute workouts which can be done individually, done as a 50-minute workout in sequence or mixed and matched to your preference. As usual, each 10-minute workout has a short warmup and cooldown that is tailored to the body part you'll be working out in that segment. This DVD, Target Tone for Beginners, offers these workouts:

Thighs: Squats, lunges and various isolation moves are used to work those quadriceps. Be sure to pay attention when she tells you where your weight should be...if your weight isn't in the right place, you won't work the correct muscles.

Arms: You will first use a set of hand weights (instructor uses a 5-pound set as do I) to work your shoulder and arm muscles. Then, unlike many upper body workouts, you'll do a series of exercises from the floor--pushups, planks, etc.

Buns: The strategy here is very similar to the thighs segment, but with different exercises that focus on the glutes. You will also take to the floor in this segment for rear leg lifts from a rather indelicate (but effective!) position. :)

Abs: This segment starts out standing, unlike the usual abs workout that is all about crunches. Once down on the floor, you will do planks as well as standard crunches.

PowerStretch: This segment is a series of stretches, both standing and on the floor, which work primarily the legs, but a little of everything else.

On the whole, I liked the DVD. I liked that she takes at least a slightly different approach on almost everything than some other workouts I've done so it doesn't feel quite so repetitive as some do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely wonderful! January 15, 2005
By Carroll
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am an on-again, off-again beginner trying to lose 40 pounds and not excerising as much as I should be. I wanted to tone my muscles while losing weight, so I tried this DVD and I couldn't be happier. Cindy Whitmarsh is very pleasant and keeps you going without being abrasive. The exercises are all doable (I even have a bad back) and I feel great when I'm done. The 10 minute increments are perfect for squeezing in some toning during a busy day. Kudos to Ms. Whitmarsh!

5.0 out of 5 stars Over 50 October 15, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This video is great for beginners the more advanced and the not so young anymore. The exercises target the thighs,arms,buns and abs and I can actually see and feel a difference. I hate to exercise, because like most people I become bored very easily. So far the short exercises that target all the need to be worked on areas, go fast and are effective. I am looking for more like them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back to Basics September 23, 2007
I'm a big fan of the 10 Minute Solution series. Something about dividing the workouts into 10-minute segments makes the time go by so much faster. I've been doing this video for a couple of weeks now, and have found that it is filled with lots of tried-and-true toning exercises - crunches, push-ups, squats, weight lifting. No fashionable methods here, just good old-fashioned get-off-your-butt. It works, though - I have lots of home exercise videos, and this is one of the few that actually makes me sore (good sore!) the next day. It's called Target Toning for Beginners, but I think everyone can benefit from this routine. Beginners will be able to make it through just fine, and more advanced exercisers can challenge themselves with modifications and heavier weights. Some reviewers have complained about the instructor's perkiness, but I really like her. Yeah, she probably was prom queen and class president, but as exercise video instructors go, she's downright tame. Besides, if doing this exercise routine means I'll have a body half as toned as hers, she can dance around in a chicken suit and sing show tunes for all I care.

5.0 out of 5 stars I like this video February 5, 2005
As an owner of at least 30 Exercise Videos (The Firm, FitPrime, various others) I like the idea of this video. Even though the entire video takes just under an hour to complete, it doesn't seem nearly as long because of the 10 minute increments. I added heavier handweights and ankle weights and believe me, I did feel the burn! I like it and anyone can adapt it and use the format for a quick pick me up.

4.0 out of 5 stars great when paired with a walking regimen October 4, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This video is great. I didn't find the instructor annoying. I do agree that the power stretch could be a bit better. The stretching in general throughout the DVD is not great - a physician once told me to sustain all stretches for at least 8 seconds. Many times I noticed the instructor only holding the stretch for a few seconds. So that's why I knocked off a star in my rating. Other than that, I think this workout is really, really good for beginners. Those who want an intermediate video shouldn't necessarily pass this up, though... the instructor gives many options for making the workout more challenging. In my opinion, this workout should be used in addition to some aerobic activity, because none of the ten minute sections raise your heart rate at all. I try to walk 30 minutes a day on a treadmill and then add 2 or 3 sections of this video, alternating every day. I love how it's broken up into ten minute sections and you can customize your workout. I feel a lot stronger and more fit after only a week of using the video!
