5.0 out of 5 stars It works for me! December 4, 2008
Verified Purchase
I like this DVD. It is a full hour and according to my heart rate monitor, I did burn over 500 calories, so it does live up to it's claim in my instance. We have to remember that the number of calories burned depends on a number of factors including your weight,resting heart rate, conditioning, etc. There are a lot of factors, so if your heart rate monitor does not max out at the 500, it may be because you are smaller, or more fit than the average exerciser.
That said, this DVD does hit all the major ( and some minor) muscle groups. You will need weights. Unlike the other Firm DVD's there is only one set of weights used on the program, but I switched out to heavier weights for the leg work. I especially like the standing ab work section. For some reason, I prefer these to on the ground sit-ups.
I did find that the timing was off on some of the routines and it seemed that the instructors cueing was a bit behind sometimes, but not enough to take a star off. I did the whole routine and felt like, from the start, I was getting a good workout with no stops.
I'll use it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kelsie is the lunge queen! December 7, 2008
Overall this is a good workout, and I will definitely be doing it again, but I do have a few minor complaints. For one thing, the rhythm of the movements is off sometimes from the music. It's not the whole time, but it does occur a few times, especially during cardio intervals, and it's annoying. My other problem was that Kelsie didn't give much warning sometimes. She would switch from one movement or combo to another and not tell you she was changing until she was already doing the new movement. Both of these problems were worsened by the fact that the music was often about the same volume as Kelsie's voice. So all of these things will make your experience a little more frustrating for your first time, but at least the late cueing and volume balance won't be such a problem after doing the workout a few times. I'm also hoping that I'll be able to ignore the beat being off, but we'll see.

Enough with the bad, here's the good. It's a well-rounded, challenging workout. Kelsie has some new creative moves and combinations that keep the workout interesting. And like I said in the title, she packs this workout with lunges, so do yourself a favor and don't do this on a day when your legs are already sore. I'm also glad to get another full hour workout - so many of the ones I've been getting from them lately are around 40 - 45 minutes.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASIC CALORIE BURN WORKOUT!!! December 2, 2008
I have been doing the Firm workouts since 2000-01 and this is an amazing workout. At first the movements seemed off the beat of the music, but then improved. The workout promises a 500 calorie burn workout in an hour and according to my monitor...I burned 618!!! That is amazing for a workout on DVD. I was so excited to try it out first thing...you won't be disappointed!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for the Uncoordinated! March 16, 2009
As a trainer, I thought Kelsie was very good. She had unlimited energy and was very motivational. That being said, I borrowed this DVD from a friend, and I have to say, I'm not the least coordinated person ever, but this was a little ridiculous. I know a lot of workout DVDs have dance and complicated exercise sequences, but until you figure out what Kelsie's doing, it's on to the the next exercise. I didn't even feel like I was getting much out of it at first because I had to start and stop so often. I'm not a beginner exerciser, so I can imagine how the beginners feel trying to keep up with this one. The DVD claims visible results in ten workouts, and I think it probably takes that long to figure out what's going on with each exercise. Overall, I'll stick with my 30-Day Shred by Jillians Michaels. The moves are easy to follow, but extremely effective.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hesitant but pleasantly surprised December 19, 2008
I was hesitant to purchase this video because I was unfamiliar with the instructor; however, I am thrilled. If you want a full hour of high intensity cardio this is the workout for you. Perfect excercise when you know you are going to eat a little extra dessert :) It reminds me of the intensity the firm had back when it started. Plus there are a lot of new moves that I haven't seen in other firm workouts (and I have nearly every one). It was challenging but the moves were so creative it kept me interested. Definately buy this!

I purchased this Dvd and Kelsie kicked my butt , Yes you will burn well over 500 calories . My total burn after the dvd ended was 1179 calories according to my heart rate monitor. Please note if you are heavier you will burn more calories as I did. I love this workout it is my Tuesday , Thursday and Saturday challenge !!!!!!!!! Get this dvd and you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 500 cal workout Kicked my butt!! January 31, 2009
I Did this workout yesterday. I am sore today!! And I workout everyday!! I have alot of Firm Dvds but they are mostly 30 to 45 mins long, I like the hour long, and I did burn over 500 calories.. This is a fast paced video so if you are not familiar with the lingo you will have a hard time getting the moves. And 3 to 5 lb weights are enough. The moves are high reps and quick. The music was a little off at times but it did'nt bother me because I was too busy concentrating on the moves to really notice. Great workout made me sweat on a cold day. I work out with a friend and she quoted " I Think this is my favorite workout!"
