This DVD is without doubt one of my favorite toning workouts. Period.
First off, as evidenced by the packaging, the production is first-rate. It is as clear and well-edited as any major Hollywood production, and the absolutely gorgeous island setting (South Pacific?? Carribean??) inspires me to work out even harder. You can practically feel the breeze coming off the ocean! :-) The music is GREAT, hip and modern; I love it! It's so refreshing to actually work out to a good soundtrack instead of the generic dance club beat that is so prevalent in exercise videos.
The entire concept of "ENVYGirls" is that of a "superteam of fitness" (their words, not mine), each one with a particularly good body part. Each girl then leads you through a 15-20 minute workout to help you get that particularly good body part. The parts are: Abs, Buns, Legs and Arms. There is an optional 4-min. warmup (it is the same on all four programs) and 5-min. express workouts for each program.
Make no mistake, this is not just an eye candy DVD a la Carmen Electra. It actually is a pretty effective strength workout. The moves are designed by celebrity trainer Michael Carson who is very knowledgable and inspiring but not drill sergeant-like (if you've ever seen "The Biggest Loser," think Bob, not Jillian!).Read more ›
As a former yoga/group exercise instructor & personal trainer, I started the girls out with basic pilates techniques, then some yoga, walking, we tried HIP HOP ABS & (at the girls request) ENVY GIRLS...they orginally wanted to try Flirty Girl Fitness, but not only did I not want a pole erected in my classroom, but the reviews on Amazon kept me from that purchase & steered me to ENVY GIRLS. We popped the disc in, excited to try something new, but were quickly disappointed. The warm-up's sound was poor & provided very few technical cues, even my teenage students were not all that impressed with the ENVY GIRLS themselves as we proceeded through all 4 workouts (a little like Barbies doing squats & tricep extensions complete with a "smile & pose" with each repetition), the routines were tough (which I appreciated) but poorly executed & GIRLS provided no motivation through the workout, in fact they barely count out the VERY repetitive reps...all of this being said, my girls group & I would suggest you go with Shaun T & his HIP HOP ABS series (a little cheesy sometimes, but TONS of fun & YES, you'll feel the burn, but you won't even care because time flies with this video)! Shaun T's technique is true, his prompts effective, sound & studio are top-notch & he really offers a workout EVERYONE would return to time & time again!
So I had low expectations with this one because female eye candy does nothing for me but I was mistaken, this is a great workout dvd set. I love how they're separated into 4 body parts so I can mix and match and the exercises themselves were unique and I got fast results with them.
Very worth the money for the set, highly recommended!
