Customer Reviews

I really like this workout.
N. Williams
Since what one person's advanced workout is another person's warm-up, I will provide some perspective on my exercise level.

It's a great DVD for people who are longing for something new in their workout program or exercise routine.

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.

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!

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! :)

I have been using Leslie Sansone's "Big Burn Intervals" for the past 10 weeks and decided to try Amy Dixon's "Total Workout in 10" and "Ultimate Fat Burn" workouts as a way to spice up my routine, amp up my stamina and suprise my body. I quickly became a fan of Amy's warm, inspirational yet no nonsense personality! While browsing Amazon.com for more interval training videos, I came across "Breatless Body: The Ultimate Calorie Burn" and was instantly intrigued: not only do I get to "work out" with the wonderful Amy Dixon but I get the benefits of a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training" Tabata protocol work out as well. WINNING!

When I received the DVD, the first thing I did was watch the entire workout and knew it was going to be tough, regardless of whatever level you choose. Amy has a beginner, intermediate and advanced level so there are points for EVERYONE to start from and aspire to! Many of these drills (speed skaters, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, jumping lunges, punching high and low), I have done at a local boxing gym and as a part of Wushu martial arts training but needless to say, after giving birth 10 months ago, I haven't done them in a while! By the end of the entire Jumping Jack set (the first drill!), I was truly "breatless" and by the end of the entire 8 drills, my lungs felt as if they'd been scrubbed clean! Even as I type this, I feel like after one workout, my lung capacity has improved! Based on this, I can see how Tabata protocol can quickly improve your cardiovascular and endurance levels! As other reviewers have noted, this is a hard, intense workout BUT if you follow Amy's directives in the introduction to go at your own pace or level, take breaks when needed and bring your best mental attitude to this workout, you'll do great and will love it!
