Customer Reviews

It is a great workout.
Colorful Girl
The exercises are different but the concept is very similar which is: multiplaner, multijoint, combination movements.
CPTScott
It really got my heart rate up and was a good workout.

This is not a new workout. This is a re-release of Kathy Smith's Matrix Method Ultimate Sculpt. That workout has plenty of reviews here on Amazon. In my opinion it's an ok workout, nothing special. The main thing I just wanted to tell others is that this is not a new workout. If you own her Matrix Method Ultimate Sculpt workout you already own this workout. It's just a new title given for an old workout - just a shiney new package is all.

I purchased this workout a couple days ago and just did this workout this morning. I was very impressed overall!

I'm a certified personal trainer who is also an avid collector of fitness dvds (a couple hundred at least). As a trainer I think it's important to stay fresh and continue to see what others are doing and dvds are one of many excellent ways to get exposure to a wide variety of approaches and concepts.

One thing I really respect about Kathy Smith is that she not only puts out consistently strong products, but she isn't afraid to get input from others (such as Angela Freeman in this dvd, Rod Stryker in her Yoga Series, Keith Cook for Kickboxing etc.). Not only that, but she often has those same folks in her actual projects and gives credit where credit is due! (this is not as common as one might think).

This program is definitely for an intermediate and beyond exerciser. This is because there are complex movements involved that require a lot of neuromuscular coordination and if someone isn't already experienced with training they definitely might be risking injury.

It's very important to have an awareness of what is safe for your specific body. There are some movements that might be contraindicated for you and you will need to know how to modify. Even though I'm a fitness professional and very fit, I was in a car wreck many years ago that led me to have cervical spine surgery. As a result of both the injury and surgery, there are certain types of overhead movements that are unsafe for me to perform. I'm fortunate in that I have the knowledge to know how to modify or completely substitute movements. Someone without that experience might get themselves into trouble.

I am very disappointed that amazon does not have this product listed as a re-release. I am a huge kathy smith fan and have many of her dvd's. I was so excited to see the 3 new dvd's listed for release on dec 18th and ordered 2 of them. In getting the package at home and going to do the workout today I realized that it was a re-release of ultimate sculpt. I went directly to the kathy smith website to email her contact people and see that her website has clearly stated that this is a re-release. I blame amazon for not advertising this correctly. The original dvd is great, I love it, so for those of you who don't have it yet, this will be a great workout. It is very complete and makes you feel like you have covered working out all body part as well as cardio. Shame on Amazon though!!!!!

Like the other reviewers said, this is a re-release. I like this workout because its less than an hour and still feels like a GREAT workout. There is a workout, core and stretch section, so you can mix and match if you are short on time. The workout combines cardio and strength training, so its efficent and effective. There are options for beginners and if I need to make it more difficult, I just add more weights. The core section is pretty good as well, and there are lots of options, so you can work your abs at your level. I sweat a lot and often times I am sore the next day. The first time I did this DVD my legs hurt for a couple days, and I have pretty strong legs from years of dance.

Concerns: If you have bad knees, this may be a little bit hard on them, but I manage to get through it every time. This DVD is not made for a true beginner unless you like having something to work towards. I need to feel pushed to enjoy a DVD for longer than a week.

First, I'll note that, although I own several of Kathy Smith's dvds I am not biased towards her...I've given one or two of them just one star before when the cueing is bad.

That said, this one is a real winner!

How I measure caloric burn:
First, let me add that I wear a bodybugg to monitor my daily caloric expenditure. I say this only so you'll know what I note is based upon scientific measurement, rather than simply perceived exertion. It can also monitor calories burned per minute and just during a workout so I have great measurement in how a fitness dvd does, regardless of whether I feel I'm burning a lot or not. And I've amassed a large fitness dvd library over the years because I workout to them 6 days a week so I have a few to compare it to...

Caloric burn:
okay, so that said, I've learned that most dvds will fall into cardio dvds which tend to burn more calories as you do them and strength dvds which burn less during the workout but helps to continue burning more throughout the rest of the day and develps muscle which also raises metabolism. I have a much harder time finding a dvd that does both. One of the Crunch dvds does this and the Biggest Loser dvds are all pretty good at it as well. This one is one of those rare exercise dvds that builds and tones but scorches the calories and keeps your heart rate up the entire time.

Cueing:
Excellent. In some dvds Kathy can trip me up BADLY but this one is excellent and very easy to follow along to in spite of it being fast paced and full of energy.

Toning:
Full body workout, even standing ab work. Head to toe.

Cardio:
Keeps your heart rate in the target fat burning zone AND builds muscle

Equipment: You'll need hand weights.
