This may be the hardest cardio workout video I own. Since what one person's advanced workout is another person's warm-up, I will provide some perspective on my exercise level. Since a naturally fast metabolism is not in my genes, I work hard to stay in shape because I know I gain weight extremely easily (I lost a lot of weight years ago and I work hard to maintain this). I run 3-4 times a week, often incorporating sprint and hill runs. I do an advanced level 1 hr bootcamp class twice a week (pull ups, hill runs, jump-ups, man-makers, etc) and I also do weight training. I have a resting heart rate in the 40s (bpm). I think I am pretty good shape. I think this workout is really hard and effective and a major butt kicker. This is a cardio junkie's dream workout.

This is a high intensity interval training (HIIT) workout based on the tabata protocol, which means you go full intensity cardio for 20 seconds and then rest for 10 seconds. This is repeated 8 times per exercise interval. There are eight intervals in this workout. Between intervals, there is a short recovery period where you are performing a low intensity move while Amy runs through the next series of exercises. For each interval, there are three levels of intensity (beginner, intermediate, advanced). There are two other exercisers in addition to Amy who perform either the beginner of the advanced workout. This workout requires no additional equipment (you use your own body). Many of the exercises are high impact (with the exception of the beginner's level). Amy is very personable instructor with a great you-can-do it attitude.

A break down of the workout:

Approximately 5 minute warm up

She she has you doing side steps as she demonstrates interval one.

5.0 out of 5 stars EFFECTIVE FAT BURNER! June 13, 2011
By jj8429
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
WoW! I absolutely LOVE this workout! HIIT & Tabata workouts are proving to be excellent for fat burning and muscle retention, more so than steady state aerobics! This is one of the best workouts I've found for quick, super-effective fat burning. I'm almost to the point of obsessed over it! My husband and I work out together and he loves it too. There's no embarrassing "dancy" cheerleading stuff to make HIM feel like an idiot. It's all athletic moves. There are 8 four minute Tabata cycles (20 seconds of intense work followed by 10 second rest repeated 8 times). If you are working at your absolute max, just ONE cycle would be sufficient...but Amy Dixon provides 7 more!

We sometimes use the dvd for timing with Amy's encouragment to work hard while doing our own moves, such as jumps on and off a step, or plyo-lunges on the box (think Cathe). It is so versatile, you can design your own Tabata style workout! Amy has a good style (not annoying) and I would definitely buy more of her workouts like this one. The bottom line is if you are serious about fitness, willing to work HARD, and want the best, most effective cardio workout on the market, GET THIS DVD! I'm SO happy I did!!!

UPDATE 7/27: After ONE MONTH of doing this workout OR Cathe's HIIT three times a week and yoga on alternate days, I've seen more changes in my body and fitness level than doing 3 months of P90X (we just finished the program). THE BONUS: With P90X, I was working out over an hour each day. With my current regime my workouts are done in 30-50 minutes and that is perfect for our busy life!! Thank you Amy Dixon, make some more DVD's like this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Try this workout!! May 24, 2011
Format:DVD
Love. Love. Love this workout!! It's killer, don't get me wrong, but still...love.

As the other reviewers have mentioned, there just isn't another (at home)workout out there like this one. I have done Turbo Fire, Insanity, I work out daily with Cathe Friedrich (love her, too, but that is a whole different review now!), yet I have found nothing quite like this.

This is a Tabata style workout. You have 8 exercises that you will do 8 times in 20/10 intervals, with about a minute of active recovery in between. For instance, the first exercise is some form of a jumping jack. Background exerciser, Amy, does a standard jumping jack, Amy Dixon preforms at level 2 doing a power jack, Sarah (poor Sarah) is at level 3 with an Air Jack. Now you do your intervals, 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off, 8 times. As I said earlier, when you finish your 8 intervals you get about a minute (2?) to hydate and learn what the exercise will be.

Amy Dixon is straight-forward, motivating, encouraging, yet not over the top (oh, you know what I mean!). She is working hard right along with you (something I enjoy). I see myself making a few more purchases!

This workout is tough, but can be modified for anyone!

Try it, you'll like it! :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Tabata Workout September 29, 2011
Format:DVD
First, a disclaimer: When I found this DVD, I was already familiar with the Tabata protocol from taking classes at Equinox clubs in Chicago, so luckily I knew what to expect in terms of format, intensity, etc. That said, I am awarding the first two stars for the mere fact that this DVD exists at all - Tabata is a tough workout - even at the gym we only go for 45 minutes, this workout is an hour and adds at least 3 intervals to what I've been doing in live classes. Go Amy! That said, you CAN do this workout (yes you can!) - there is no need for fear or dread factor. Amy gives some advice at the beginning that can't be over-emphasized: go at your own pace, mix up the levels if necessary (this single piece of advice alone can get you through the entire thing), and if you're not feeling it, SKIP that interval. Now, that's obviously harder to do in a live class situation and not my favorite option (read: I'm stubborn!), so I made use of "mixing up the levels" a lot. One Tabata Interval contains 8 sets total: you can do the first 2 at Level 1; try Level 2 for the next 2 or 3; recover for 1 at level 1; and then push yourself again at the end. Of course, you can adjust the ramping up and recovery, the point is that mixing it up is a very good way to improve your endurance - and it will improve! Also, if you feel like something is just not working, pick the level you like and stay there. A good example of this for me was the "Mountain Climber" series. Mountain Climbers are tough - even at the first level. I watched the Butt Kickers (Level 2) and the Level 3 option and decided that, at least the first time through, I'd stick with level 1 and adjust the speed if I felt up to it - and that was plenty.
