Editorial Reviews

Timesaver Lift Weight to Lose Weight includes two highly efficient 20-minute workout routines, one focusing on the upper body; the other on the lower body. The unique Dual Track System enables you to alternate high and low resistance to gain strength and avoid workout plateaus, and can be easily combined for an amazing total body routine. Perfect for all fitness levels. Lifting weights adds lean muscle required to increase metabolism and helps burn calories. It also increases bone density to improve posture and prevent osteoporosis. Bonus workouts include Fabulous Abs and Stronger Back plus Kathy’s tips on "Looking Thinner with Great Posture."

Customer Reviews

This is a good video to include in your workout library.

Both the upper and lower body segments (she works on your balance some during the lower body segment, it's great!)

The workout is very challenging, I think, and I can tell this is going to help me lose weight and tone up.

I love this tape. I got it about six months ago and have been doing it about twice a week and I couldn't be happier with the results. This tape will get your arms and legs in terrific shape (the ab program is a little too short for me, frankly) if you do it faithfully, and the tape is so enjoyable, that it's easy to do faithfully. As she points out in the video, building muscle helps you lose weight, and this video will help you reach your goal. As other reviewers have stated, she offers two tracks, complete with guidance as to who should do what when, and recommends beginning weights. Her direction is terrific and the tape really flows. She's energetic, without being overly peppy (as I find her in some other videos). Unlike a lot of other tapes, you don't waste time listening to instruction, you are working out for the entire 40 minutes. Kathy Smith has split the tape into two 20 minute workouts (upper and lower body) which is really helpful when you've got limited time to workout.
Bottom line, Kathy Smith has designed a terrific workout tape that is easy to stick with and will give you the results you want.

A great tape for adding weight training to your exercise routine.
A caveat about equipment you'll need. I watched the intro and it said all you need to get started is a set of dumbbells and either a chair or a weight bench. I went w/ the bench. Then I got to the second workout, where they suggested ankle weights, and also the exercises required a straight-backed chair, which I did not have, as I bought the bench. Sigh! (If I did this over again, I'd skip the bench cause a chair will work just as well).
That said, these are two fast, fun workouts that produce results. The lower body, especially, seems to burn my legs up but then, maybe that's where I need the most work. The mercifully-short abs/back "bonus" workout is over before ya know it, which (if you hate abs work as much as I do) is a good thing. I can really feel a difference, though, so hey, it's working!
The background music is cheesy but fun, and Kathy's enthusiasm is infectious. If her motivational outbursts piss you off, you should really try to get in a more positive frame of mind when you work out, I think.
One final suggestion: try vigorously vaccuuming your workout space as your warmup. Five minutes, and you really warm up all the muscle groups. PLUS... you've cleaned your carpet. No sense in jogging in place for five minutes when you can vaccuum!!

I've worked with a personal trainer for a year and took a year off to run a marathon. I noticed that once I stopped weight training I slowly gained weight, even with running. So here I'm back again with weights. I'm new to Kathy Smith (probably the only one in the country) and I'm impressed. She does all the exercises that my trainer does and even provides 2 methods for either supersetting (to fatigue) or traditional lifting. The leg workout will get your heartrate up. The arm workout was perfect.
I don't recommend this video to beginners. It's much too fast. Great video for a 6-12 week toning. I will mention that a weight bench is helpful and there is a 7 minute ab workout at the end which I didn't even know about. The workouts went so fast I couldn't believe they were 20 minutes.

Format: VHS Tape
I have the first volume of TimeSaver Lift Weights and I thought it was okay. I wasn't overly impressed with it, but I still use it. But with this second volume, I was immediately impressed and happy with it. It's become one of my favorite staples already. In this volume, Kathy includes a warmup as well as an abs workout section. The workout is broken down into two sections: first is the upper body with 10 minutes focused on squats and 10 minutes focused on glutes, second is the lower body with first 10 minutes standing leg work and the remaining 10 minutes done on the floor. The people in class aren't annoyingly cheery and the videography is cut nicely. There are even some inserts from Kathy where she demonstrates proper form to ensure an effective workout. There are some new techniques here you will not find in other tapes, especially in the abs section. Great for veriety and staving off boredom. One move I really liked is going down in a squat and then shifting to one leg and then raising squat back up. I am an avid exerciser and this tape made me feel sore in areas I haven't been concentrating. I liked Kathy Smith just fine before, but this tape made me a fan of hers now. Worth the $$.

This is an excellent results-driven video. There are 2 parts-upper body and lower body, each 20 minutes. Both are challenging, move quickly and are very thorough. You'll feel it, believe me. There is no warm-up, I do it after cardio and I think that is what was intended with this one (hence, "Timesaver").Kathy has a system she's incorporated into the workout which she calls the "Dual Track System"-which means that there is instruction for both low rep & heavy weights as well as high rep & lighter weights in the same workout. She's got a class going with her (if you are familiar with KS videos, it's the usual suspects and some new faces too). The bkgd music is fast, Kathy's very whoop-y and 'motivational' (for lack of a better word) in this tape. It's high intensity, but very effective and also quite fun. You'll see results.
