Product Description

Anna Kournikova is everybody's darling. Now this beautiful young woman who is one of the biggest draws ever on the tennis tour is releasing her own, eagerly anticipated fitness guide. The excercise program performed by Anna is suitable for all age levels, from budding teenage tennis players to the keep-fit conscious adult, and includes a variety of routines suitable for both beginners and experienced athletes. Designed to enable the viewer to achieve a higher level of general fitness and more toned figure, Anna goes through a variety of weight and other simple tools such as the stability ball and jump rope. Anna presents the action, performs the exercises, and voices the narrative, making this very much a solo project. 52 minutes.

Amazon.com

Tennis requires strength, power, endurance, balance, and speed, and tennis star Anna Kournikova's 52-minute workout, aimed at experienced athletes, emphasizes these fitness elements. Kournikova warms up by jumping rope, including one-footed hopping and speed jumping. Then she trains muscle endurance with 15 to 20 repetitions of varied lower- and upper-body exercises using dumbbells and a stability ball. Next a partner joins her for the medicine ball segment, including overhead throw, side toss, power drop, and other power moves. She then trains for speed and agility with high-knee sprints, lateral shuffles, and a variety of cone sprints (you won't be able to do these in your living room). Finally she challenges your anaerobic endurance with plyometric (explosive power) moves like jumping boxes and speed stepping. This video is recommended for serious athletes looking to improve their sports performance and all-around fitness. This is definitely not for the beginner or casual exerciser. --Joan Price

Format:DVD
It's a great dvd for if you are trying to develop for a sport. She really shows exercises that she does for tennis. This was a pleasant surprise as I thought they'd just put together a workout and stick her in there to have people buy it.
The big negative I had, was, when buying it, there was nothing to indicate on the case that you would need all that equipment and a partner. You need a medicine ball, orange cones, a big powerball, hand weights, bands for your ankles, a giant grid for the floor, a step, and etc. I wish they would have had the tennis clips etc. on an optional separate part of the dvd. If you just want to do the work out, you have to sit through that.
I like it, because it's geared towards improving athleticism as opposed to just sculpting muscles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent workout December 2, 2001
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I'm a tennis player, so I thought that Anna K's workout might be a good one to try. It is definitely challenging. Most people don't have the space available for the wind-sprints and cone-course exercises she has at the end, but most of the exercises can be done at home. Most people don't have a medicine ball, but you can do the same exercises with a basketball. The balance ball adds a whole new dimension to free weight exercises, so it's worth getting one.
Anna's feeble nutrition and diet tips are a waste of tape. But I wish the producers had spent a little more time showing Anna play tennis. A tennis tip or two would have been nice and might encourage non-players to take up the game.
Someone commented on how awful the music is and I cannot understand what his objection was. It's pretty much soft rock, not played very loudly. The visuals are also shot with taste and restraint. No sleazy, lingering shots of her chest and butt, thank goodness. But my teenage son did enjoy watching it nonetheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good video, if you don't want to work out with it January 26, 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I really like this video. It is the type of video that you need to watch, jot down the exercises, and do them else where. This is not a "work out with Anna" video. It is geared towards active people who need exercises to elevate their level of fitness. You should not buy this video if you intend to do it in your apartment. Nor is it a video for beginners.
The music is not too bad. It is bearable. The workouts are clear, concise, and more importantly good. If you are a tennis player, or an active person, this will help you out a lot. Oh and if you are just a male Anna fan you will like the video, too.

Format:VHS Tape
The music to this video was loud and awful. Unless you like heavy metal type music, you'll find it unbearable. The music was geared toward Anna's young male groupies instead of the serious thirty and older customers.
If you can deal with the music, Anna shows you practically every exercise to reach every muscle. It's a great workout and the exercises are extremely helpful for improving your physical ability in the sport you play, especially tennis which is why I bought this tape in the first place. It helps in improving your speed, strength, endurance, balance, and agility and even tells you how many calories you should be eating and gives you four examples of a good nutritional power breakfast. It also shows you how to warm up before hand and how to cool down afterwards.
However, the video does not tell you how much weight,sets, or repetitions you should do except for saying that you should use a weight amount to work out with that makes you tired after 15-20 reps. She uses an agility ball, cones, a box, a medicine ball, weights, lateral resistors, and a jump rope. You'd have to buy some of these exercise tools or use your imagination and use things around the house. But if you're serious about self physical improvement, I definitely think it's worth the investment.
I am rating this video a 4, only because the music is horrendous and I can't mute it because then I can't hear the instuctions.
If you have some knowlegde about reps and sets on your own, and you play a sport, especially tennis, or just want to get in shape and can get past the music, I would then recommend this video.
I would also recommend it to heavy metal music fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best exercise video since "muppetrobics" October 24, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
From the moment you pop the video in, you can feel the exhileration of the tennis star's workout. The energy of the music is second only to Ms. Kournikova's energy and tireless routine consisting of arm pumps, leg lifts and exercises with dumbells. After the workouts are over, you feel satisfied and tired, yet ready for more. I look forward to her future efforts. I would recommend this to anyone, especially those of you who don't have a workout partner.

1.0 out of 5 stars I want my $$$ back October 27, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This is the worst exercise video I have ever purchased. I was looking forward to getting a toned and tight body like Anna. She showed me the exercises to do, but that was it! I like the medicine ball exercises, but I don't have anyone to workout with at 6am every morning. Maybe I'll get something for it at next year's rummage sale.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fitness is now fun October 29, 2001
By David
Format:VHS Tape
What a pleasant surprise. Obviously for everyone who is a fan of Anna, this tape is a must. I must admit I didn't know what to expect in a fitness video. But there was a wide range of exersises that were very well explained and demonstrated and all to pleasant happy music that helped you get into it. I'm impressed that no one needs to have to train at a gym or buy exotic machinery or equipment to do any of it either. There were even some interesting nutritional tips given. Finally I found the presentation to be first rate. Anna took the workout very seriously, yet smiled a lot and didn't shy away from anything, including doing one handed push ups. Quite amazing. If you take a look at what it has done for her fitnness, I think it fair to assume it will do us all good to try her work out. I hope you will enjoy this video, I sure did.

Anna came into my living room the other day. (Must have been between tennis games). She left without asking me if I was busy that evening.
She did some really nice workouts. Read more
