Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

It's a variety of different workouts. She does some drills for various athletic skills, some calisthenics, and some plyometrics. Some of it is done in real time, where you can follow along, but some of it is not. I feel the section on plyometrics is probably the best, because (as she points out) most people neglect that aspect of their training.

The music is okay, her narration is helpful and concise, and the workout overall is pretty good. The only reason I don't give it a perfect rating is just because there really isn't anything new here per se. It's a good but ultimately pretty standard-issue workout. Also, the nutrition guide is basically just her macronutrient preferences with a few sample meal suggestions. Overall though it's a good video.

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.

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.
