I am a 44 year old intermediate to advanced exerciser and often use DVDs by Cathe Freidrich, Jillian Michaels and Jari Love, mixing it up with various other cardio DVDs. Saddlebags and lots of inner thigh fat have always been issues for me and since I've used this for one month, 3 times a week, there are no more saddlebags. And, my inner thighs are down significantly and that area is firm, not like jello anymore. I'm very, very surprised by that because it's gotten semi-firm before but never reduced, not a bit. There is defined muscle on my outer thigh and also starting up the inner lower part - that's amazing.

This DVD is worth buying because Ms. Olson is really on to something, whether it's the exercises and/or the sequencing this is working. The abdominal exercises are tough and also get the job done. I highly recommend this DVD because you really have nothing to lose by trying it but big, jiggly fat!!!!

I work out 7 days a week and have used exercise DVDs for many years (I own about 250 or so - I'm an addict :| - and I always look for the advanced ones) and this workout is incredibly challenging. It is just amazing. It actually works more than what it says. You get some upper body and cardio in too plus there are also some kettlebell moves. A great variety but with lots of reps to really fatigue the muscles (and they will be toast!) and for reasons I can't explain it was fun at the same time. I did it in the morning and by afternoon my buns were screaming. If you're looking for a challenge this is the one to get.

I may want perfect glutes,abs and legs, but it will never happen. But doing this workout I come very close with Dr. Olson's instruction. If you do this workout 3 times a week you will change your backside. The instructions are percise and show the Dr. Olson researched all the exercises before attempting to direct the DVD. This DVD is not the normal run of the mill DVD. This is a world class workout.
Dr. Olson is a professor and writes numerous articles on exercise. Excellent...!!!

Absolutely one of my favorite exercise DVDs for hitting trouble spots. My legs are burning after both workouts! The abs section is really effective, more than pilates. I have seen fast results in seat and thighs and huge differences in how clothes fit. Straight forward exercises, which are well explained and challenging to do. The time flies by. The moves alternate between slow and fast speeds that increase heart rate, yet don't feel frantic. Must buy.

This is a hard workout, it really concentrated completely on your lower half, my legs were screaming at the end of if. I am in excellent shape and I really couldn't do some of the abdominal work, I would definately recommend it. I would say that it is probably not for beginners though.

Love it!!!

The dvd has 2 leg/glute workouts, and 2 ab workouts (called Mega and Master routines). Though I'm in reasonably good shape, I found all the workouts challenging - especially the leg routines.

The leg workouts are standing leg routines (no floor work), last about 20 minutes and involve creative squats, plies, leg lifts and lunges, often alternating fast with slow moves. The only equipment needed is a chair, and light & medium weights. The ab workouts last about 5 minutes and involve creative crunches and leg lifts (no planks). The set design is nice and bright and Dr. Olson's cuing is great.

The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that I found the Mega leg routine to be oh-so-boring, with endless squats & lunges set to repetitive music. I had to stop after about 12 minutes as I'd had enough (I still got an awesome workout however)

I haven't used the dvd enough yet to see results, but from the way I feel after each workout, I'm confident I will!

I am an avid exerciser, I am a 40 year old female, I have been working out with Jillian michaels, brazil butt lift, the bowflex and even some cardio with Simmons. I have to say, I haven't been sore in months until this DVD. I was looking for some core strength training for my legs and backside for trouble spots and found it with this. This workout will focuse on your legs and butt, so if that is what you are looking for get this DVD. I am in great shape and this exercise is tough, and made even me sore. I love it! I am not a marketeer, like you get with some reviews, I am really a huge excercise nut, and I suggest Michele Olson. She gives you great instructions, shows you exactly how to do the exercise. The ab work is tough, I have a six pack, and it still got me sore, thank goodness it was short cause it's tough. I can already see a difference on back thighs and butt in 2 weeks. I do not think it is boring because it is focusing on the areas I want to work, and if you like to exercise then that is what you want in a workout, not a bunch of women jumping around looking pretty. I hope this review helps.

I was surprised that someone said that these exercises don't hurt your knees because mine were hurting almost immediately after I completed the legs & glutes section. I do believe that these are good effective exercises for legs & glutes(haven't done the abs sections yet) and she does do a ton of reps to the point where you may be begging for mercy depending on your fitness level. But I find it interesting that in her intro, she didn't discuss any of the reasons why she chose specific exercises since she is an exercise physiologist. In Tamilee Webb's The Science of Fitness with Tamilee: I Want Those Buns! [VHS] Tamilee goes into detail about how the exercises in her DVD have been proven to be the best ones to tone up that area, and that's why she chose them. I expected to hear something like that in this one but she didn't spout any scientific basis. Surprising since she's a PhD. Also, she doesn't discuss proper form when doing the lunges and squats which is crucial for not hurting yourself. She just says things like "Go down only as far as is comfortable for you", which I don't find all that helpful. If you already know proper form, this will not be too much of an issue but I think reminders are always appropriate and helpful. If you have bad knees and don't know proper form, you could end up doing a ton of reps that can hurt you. Often, she takes a fast pace with the reps and it's easy to lose form which is what may have happened to me and why my knees were hurting, or it could just be that squats & lunges in general, are hard on the knees (especialy if you already have issues with them, which I do) even with good form. I'm not sure why people thought this workout was so "fun".Read more ›
