Editorial Reviews

Fat to Firm Fast is a super efficient way to burn calories, while toning up your entire body. Fitness expert Michelle Dozois has chosen the most effective training methods commonly used by personal trainers to create four short workout circuits for this program. The simple circuits make the most of every minute by using multi-muscle group exercises, targeted toning and easy-to-follow mini cardio segments that will help you firm up and slim down fast. The Pick Your Level System Makes Working Out As Easy As 1-2-3. Here’s How: • Just Push Play—there’s no programming required. • Within the workout, three instructors each show the moves modified for a specific level: 1, 2 or 3. • You simply follow along and do each move at the level that feels right for you. Remember, this is your workout – you don’t have to stick with one level throughout the entire routine. You may prefer to stick mostly with Level 1, but choose a few Level 2 or 3 moves occasionally. You can customize the workout as you progress or as your energy level varies from day to day. Whatever level you chose, know that Michelle specifically designed this program so that all of the levels are really effective. One or two sets of light hand weights can be used for this workout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great circuit workout for beginners to advance with March 28, 2008
By Annie
I love exercising with Michelle Dozois - she cues well, her workouts are always fun and I never check the time, even when she makes me work hard.

Time really flies with Pick Your Level, a circuit workout with plenty of variety (cardio, upper body work with weights, lots of squats and lunges, torso rotations, ab work on the mat and some lovely yoga-inspired strength work and stretches). The three different levels make this workout even more interesting; and because Michelle cues so well, you can move between levels depending on how you're feeling and whether you want to make it a tougher or lighter workout. Another plus is that the DVD is chaptered, so it's easy to skip a circuit or two if you want a shorter workout.

I would strongly recommend this DVD for beginners and people returning to exercise. There is so much room to grow with this workout. More advanced exercisers may find some parts a little easy, especially the cardio segments (although you can increase your heart rate by skipping the base moves and you can also use heavier weights). And when you're ready to move on, Michelle's Your Best Body Circuit is a great choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another good workout ;-) July 30, 2006
I've seen this instructor (Michelle Dozois) in other dvds (Prevention and Crunch) and I knew she'd be good in this too because she's always outgoing and knows her stuff. Here she is no different. Still upbeat and motivating.

This workout uses light cardio with weighted intervals. This is the best way to burn fat and calories. They show three different levels of moves so no matter what your fitness level is, you can keep up or challenge yourself. To show you the different levels, they sometimes show the other participants either in a split screen or side by side. Either way, you get to always see what someone else is doing and choose what you are comfortable with which I like. You will need to have weights for this and you will feel like you've done some good for yourself after this. It's a good workout.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite workout video September 29, 2007
This is the best workout video I've seen. Michelle gives clear instructions, has excellent cueing, explains how to get good form, focuses on making each exercise safe, and has perfect pacing. The three levels of exercises and the ability to pick and choose which level of each exercise you want to do truly makes this a video appropriate for any fitness level. The workout is thorough: strength training, cardio, balance, and flexibility are all addressed. For those with bad joints, it's completely feasible to do this as a strictly low-impact workout and still be challenged as much as you like. I'd recommend this workout to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Get It Done Workout April 7, 2009
This 44 minute workout is similar to Prevention's "Walk Your Way Slim" because of the levels of intensities. In this workout you are afforded the ability to work at a beginner, intermediate or advanced level. Most workouts don't have this ability and you have to either modify or intensify. This workout is also similar to Anni Mairs "Core Force" or "Life Force" due to using light weights and having cardio segments intermixed.

Michelle Dozois does an excellent job cueing. Not only does she tell you what is coming next, she also reminds you to use proper form and which weights to pick up for each circuit. The camera angles are always good to view each level exerciser.

"Fat To Firm" consists of four short circuit workouts. The circuits make the most of every minute by using multi-muscle group exercises, targeted toning and easy to follow mini cardio segments. The use of light weights 3-10 pounds is required for maximum benefits of this workout.

This DVD is chaptered so you can pick any segment you want from warm up to cool down. Or just play the whole workout.
This workout is quite enjoyable and tough at the same time. It is a very efficient workout. I like that you can get upper body, lower body, core and cardio all done in 44 minutes. The time goes by quickly without any dread factor. Michelle has a very friendly demeanor which encourages you to stick with it and do some advanced level moves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough in every way January 11, 2007
This program is very thorough. I love Michelle anyway and she does not disappoint me with this DVD. The moves are not difficult and the choices are endless since you can mix and match moves because there are 3 levels to choose from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous and fun December 12, 2007
I own another of Michelle's workouts - 10 Minute Cardio Solution. She is upbeat without being annoying and doesn't take a whole lot of time explaining each movement. They are simple enough to follow. I like that you can challenge yourself depending on your mood and energy level of the day. I stick with level 2 most of the time but jump up to level 3 for the cardio segments.

In general, I enjoy Michelle's personality and that you can customize your workout. I get bored very easily so this DVD is perfect for those who need stimulation and challenge.
