Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The numbers are impressive: the three folks pictured on the cover of Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition: The Workout lost a combined total of 579 pounds in the course of a year on that TV show. Of course, similar results are hardly guaranteed for everyone using this three-part video. But the motivation and inspiration are undeniable; these three and the others who participate under the guidance of trainer Chris Powell are not the svelte, perfect bodies seen in so many other videos, but they are clearly reveling in the thoroughly liberating process of dropping weight and getting in shape. The first of the three levels is the shortest (15 minutes) and easiest, featuring fairly slow, low-impact routines, a few positions derived from yoga (child's pose, bridge pose, cobra, spinal twists), half pushups, sit-ups, and other relatively gentle movements--all of which will be very challenging for some beginners, especially obese people who struggle merely to stand up straight from an all-fours position (yes, that's one of the moves). Powell ups the ante for the remaining two levels, each about 30 minutes and featuring exercises like the "speedskater," running in place, and various repeated sequences called "dirty thirties" (Level 3 has several dynamic "circuits" designed specifically to raise the heart rate and burn calories). Easier variations of most routines are also demonstrated, and Powell issues frequent reminders that users should work at their own pace and take breaks as needed. The shallow end of the pool? Sure, if you're an experienced exerciser. But if you're not, this is a good place to start. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Get up, get moving and start losing with three easy-to-follow workouts created by transformation specialist Chris Powell from ABC's hit show, “Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition." You too can shed unwanted weight using the same exercises that helped people on the show lose hundreds of pounds.

Designed for any fitness level, begin with the Level 1 workout then progress to Level 2 and Level 3 to up the challenge and calorie burn. Chris and favorite show participants will be there every step of the way with modifications, encouragement and the inspiration needed to achieve your own total-body transformation!

Workout Descriptions:
Level 1 (10 min): Put your body in motion with gentle moves that work every major muscle group to ignite your metabolism, start losing pounds and inches, and begin your transformation.
Level 2 (20 min): Kick it up a notch with a calorie-burning workout that includes a cardio-infused Shredder Circuit, an ab-sculpting Core Circuit, and the “Dirty 30" that blasts fat in 30-second bursts.
Level 3 (30 min): Take your makeover to the max with calorie-crunching cardio, a Sprint Circuit of quick total-body moves to build muscle, and an Endurance Circuit that turns your body into a fat-burning furnace one rep at a time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Steps to begin an exercise program October 3, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The cover of "Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition: The Workout" shows images of three people who have been on the show. They are Rachel who lost 161 pounds, LaRhonda who lost 202 pounds, and Alex who lost 216 pounds. There's also an 11 minute segment where they give advice. This workout is designed for those who want to start losing weight and have not been active. This DVD is probably not intended for experienced exercisers.

There are three levels in the DVD. Each level has its own warm up and cool down.
In all three, Chris Powell leads a group with various fitness levels.

Level 1 is about 15 minutes. This workout is for people, (like the people on the cover, when they first wanted to get fit), who are just starting out. Movements are slow and carefully controlled. Mr. Powell instructs with safety in mind and works on the upper body, the lower body, and the core.

Level 2 is about 25 minutes. This workout bumps it up a bit by introducing some aerobic movements. Aerobics include some high impact, but there's always a low impact version shown. Mr. Powell works more on the upper body, lower body, and the core.

Level 3 is about 30 minutes. Mr. Powell continues the upper body, lower body, and core work with longer aerobics, a series of squats, pushups, ab work and so on. Easier modifications are shown.

Mr. Powell's instruction is friendly, gentle, and mindful of newcomers to exercise. No equipment is needed. The DVD explains consistency in exercising over time to improve health.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is GREAT!!! October 7, 2011
Format:DVD
I am a big fan of the show. I think this video is exceptional in that it helps people like me(obese). I have been doing it for a few weeks and it along with Chris Powell's Stax program has helped me drop 45 lbs in 2 months! Keep in mind I have been doing the stax program and walking and a little weight training. Now I am doing this workout video and walking and weight training a few days a week. This is GREAT!!!!! I CANNOT WAIT FOR HIS BOOK TO COME OUT DECEMBER 2011!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars An encouraging workout November 15, 2011
Format:DVD
I really enjoyed this workout. I exercise at home and have many workouts. I am not obese, but I do prefer low-impact workouts. I also prefer workouts that don't wax poetic about how great my (butt, abs, what-have-you) will look after doing the video.

This workout fit the bill for me. It has 3 workout options (roughly 10, 20, 30 minutes). The shortest has the feel of a joint-mobility warm-up (not very taxing for me) but the longest did cause me to break a sweat. Yes, there is some repetition between the different workouts, so if you plan on doing ALL of them in one sitting, then you'll probably be bored. They all can be modified to be easier or more challenging.

I found this workout GREAT for days when I don't want to do something too intense, don't feel like getting out my weights, or if I want a "spark" workout later in the day (just to get moving after sitting a long time). I also plan to take it with me as I travel for the holidays (doesn't require a lot of room, no equipment needed). I have 2 preschool age daughters and they really enjoy this video, also. The moves are simple and repeated for time; there is no foul language, like some trainers think they must (*cough* JILLIAN!), and the instructor is encouraging and friendly.

It's a keeper for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Workout January 13, 2012
By Hillary
Format:DVD
We have been getting really into workout videos at my house, and we recently purchased this thinking it would be a good hard workout. We read the descriptions of each level and decided to skip right to level 3. It was still too easy for us, so we just amped up our own level of intensity to increase heart rate and such. It is a great tape for those of you just starting off, but if you are in semi okay shape I would only recommend if you can make yourself work harder than they do in the video. I won't lie I was sore the next day, but I feel like I wouldn't have been if I was working at the intensity they were on the video. The good thing is it offers low impact for people with bad knees, and it also offers variations of intensity for beginningers and such. I will do the workout again, but at my own pace, and now if I have a friend who is just beginning they will be able to keep up on their own with the tape as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! Realistic for Bigger people! December 13, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am almost 300lbs., and this video is great!! It is realistic for a starting program that you can continue. You feel as though you have really worked out, but it is something you will continue to do. It has 3 levels, the beginning is perfect for someone starting out. I had checked it out at the library, and fell in love. I had to have it!! I have already lost a 2 pant sizes and I've only had it 2 weeks, plus I really do FEEL better. It is completely reasonable, 15 mins to begin with. Chris Powell is amazing, understanding, and very encouraging! I have finally found a workout video that I think I will stick with.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Workout Video!!!!! January 12, 2012
By jss
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My wife's review of this video:

I don't understand why this workout video received so few stars by some of the viewers. I'm not overweight but needed something a little bit lower impact and this video delivered exactly what I was looking for. I average 5 miles daily on the elliptical or treadmill and this video still gave me a decent workout and was easy on my joints. THE VIDEO SAYS IT IS LOW IMPACT right on the case cover!

<My Bodymedia Data:> My weight fluctuates between 115-130 and I'm in my late 30's 5ft 4in.
Level 1 I burned 40 calories (2.8 per minute avg) 216 steps with activity of 09 minutes moderate 00 vigorous.
Level 2 I burned 127 calories (4.3 per minute avg) 892 steps with 19 moderate activity minutes and 05 vigorous.
Level 3 (modified) I burned 137 calories (4.0 per minute avg) 1415 steps 19 moderate activity with 07 vigorous.

The only thing I would have liked would have been a visual countdown clock for each interval and a couple of the kickboxing workouts didn't feel balanced.

I'm very happy with my purchase and glad I gave this video a chance.
