By Reviewer Dr. Beth #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 18, 2005
Format: VHS Tape
Shape Your Body was Cindy Crawford's first workout video, which she created in collaboration with personal trainer Radu. Shortly after its release, it was criticized for containing dangerous moves, largely because Cindy sometimes shows poor form and often moves much too quickly through the exercises; however, experienced exercisers who know how to modify should not have any problems. The video contains 3 strength-based workouts: a 45-minute workout focused on stretching and toning your legs plus working your buttocks, chest, back, and abs; a 40-minute workout aimed at building power and strength in your legs plus working your shoulders, arms, and abs; and a quick, 10-minute full body training routine using no equipment. Because the first two workouts target different muscle groups, they are designed to be performed on consecutive days, while the third workout is meant as a short bonus for days that you don't have time do more than that. The style of these workouts is high repetition, low weight training; you definitely don't have time to switch to heavier weights between the various exercises. Radu provides voiceover instruction for the first two workouts and occasionally appears on screen to adjust Cindy's form; Cindy herself also makes frequent comments throughout the workouts, which are filmed in a variety of indoor and outdoor settings to a pop soundtrack.

The first workout begins with a 6-minute warm-up containing fast-moving stretches. The next 12 minutes focus on standing leg work: you'll do a series of "leg swings" while holding on to a chair for balance and moving to the front, side, and back (these are sort of modified ballet-type movements). You then perform a lunge combined with a front kick. The leg swings and lunges are repeated for a total of three sets of each.

i've been using this tape on & off for about 8 years. it works the bits it should, they ache and then u start and look great. no prancing around like some chicken on heat, just concentrated reps and sets targeting all those essentally "dangerous" areas for the female form! It's not too fast, in actual fact once u do this everyday, it's counted too slow. as for "unsafe" - where? i always feel stronger in areas previously weak e.g. lower back, so ignore that! (just don't push til it burns, reduce the amount of reps as recommended!) looking at cindy's figure throughout actually motivates me as she isn't a stick insect but has the body I want and can aim for (apart from the extra 5 inches in height unfortunately!) and the music is good, although if i had one dig - bring out another tape of similiar format, 2 new workouts and newer music...everytime i hear "crazy" by seal now i'm constantly reminded of kicking my legs in the air!!!! and one more thing - YES, for the first 2-3 days after the first workout dont be surprised if ROBOCOP can walk better than u can!! It hurts!

This workout video changed my life. In combination with a diet and workout daily with this routine I lost over 100 lbs and took 10 inches off my waist in about six months. I did this workout daily for over one year and never had ONE injury and my back never even hurt. I find it highly unusual that, as mentioned in the review, 12 people with back injuries went to the same chiropractor. I don't know if the fitness "experts" who reviewed this workout are jealous, envious or what. The editor Joan Price mentions in her review, "She presents one after another of the exercises that fitness professionals threw out of their routines two decades ago." I imagine exercise routines are just like fad diets. What all the "experts" and professionals considered effective and a must do today is out tomorrow. Remember bran muffins? Eat them or die. Whatever happened to that? Oh, everyone's on Atkin's now. I don't care if the routines in this workout are two decades old. THEY WORK. That's all that matters.

I had never used weights in my life and started off with 5 lbs weights and gradually over the months worked my way up to 15 lbs weights. When you first begin this workout you will not be able to keep up with Cindy. You'll definitely have to pause and rewind a lot when you first start so keep the remote close by. But keep at it and eventually you'll be able to keep pace with Cindy. This is a wonderfully effective workout and as I said before it was a life-changing event for me.

I first went to Radu's gym about fifteen years ago. I started up again a few years back, but then switched to a job that was on the other side of town and just couldn't make it. I remember hearing he had made a work out video with Cindy Crawford and Voila!, quickly found it at a video store.

I LOVE IT!!! It was just like the classes, so I knew I made the right choice.

Every so often, when I realized I wasn't getting enough excercise in my daily routine of life, I'd start using the video again.

Radu is really a very tough trainer. No kidding, he doesn't mess around.
Knowing this, if you haven't worked out before or in a long while, start with the 10-minute routine first. Some reviews say how sore everyone is in the beginning - start with the 10-minute workout. After you're comfortable doing that for a week or so, move on to the 40-minute workouts. (Switch between the 10-minute and a 40-minute one if you're still too sore?) This last time around, I did the 10-minute one for about 4 weeks. (I began working at home and was dearly out of shape!) I then moved onto the 40-minute routines. After about a week or so of those, my boyfriend said "WOW! You look great! You really are doing those workouts every day, aren't you?" I don't know if it's the first 4 weeks of the 10-minute routine and then the 40-minute ones or just the 40-minute routines that made enough difference for him to notice, but it was still enough to make a difference. I'm no longer tired doing the simple things.
Even if you're a workout fiend, you're still going to be challenged with this video.

As for one posting saying doctors have seen patients with back pain after using the video...
