I thought this DVD really delivered for somebody who is a beginner and wants results without spending too much time. It's easy to crawl out of bed and pop it in for 10 minutes in the morning before work - so easy that I'm able to stay consistent with doing it every day! Because it's easy to stay committed, I am seeing really great results after only 2 weeks! I would definitely recommend doing it in the morning too, because then you are more aware of trying to flex the muscles during the day by sitting up straight.
If you are a big Jillian Michaels fan, than this DVD is probably not tough enough for you - but if you are more of a beginner and need some daily motivation and different exercises to work all the different muscles in your abs, than this DVD is perfect for you!
Denise Austin, I think, is an excellent instructor, if you're new to her and want a good motivator: she herself has been studying fitness and physical education for over 25 years, has had exercise TV shows, but is also a mother of 2 and is now over 50! She is also in the U.S. President's Fitness something-or-other, so she seems pretty well respected in her field.
I must say though - if you want results, you will have to bust it a bit! The exercises are tough, and I do x3 per session, so 30 minutes of belly exercises is pretty darn tiring! But the exercises are challenging without being impossible, she gives "Level 1, 2, and 3" so you can progress and start at a lower level, and she has some different stuff on here: aerobic exercises, sit-ups, pilates, and yoga. You will need a yoga mat, especially on a hard floor (or just keep a cushion on hand for under your elbows and knees), and for the final workout you'll need an exercise ball too.
The downside for any Denise-fans is that you probably have some of these workouts already; they're all taken from other workout videos (i.e. she's taken the stomach-targeting parts from her other DVDs and compiled them here). Also, I have read some people find her peppy "encouraging voice" a bit annoying, but never fear, there is also another option to have music instead of Denise's instructions!
I have had this DVD for about 3 months, and am definitely seeing results, so you can definitely do it!! But the problem is that you will have to be prepared for some tough exercises...
