Get bored easily? Then Prevention's Personal Training with Chris Freytag is one for your collection. There is a whole menu of different workouts that can be mixed and matched, depending on your goal (lose weight, overall toning, specific body-part toning, etc.), your time available, and your mood. Beginners can take it easy with, say, one of the cardio workouts and one or two of the spot-toning workouts. More advanced exercisers can add on any of several chunks of toning, sculpting, and cardio. The moves are, in general, rather basic--squats, lunges, quick-moving reps in the cardio routines, etc., but those of us who weren't born to be in the Rockettes appreciate the simpler choreography. You'll need light hand weights (or slightly heavier for more of a challenge) and a workout mat or thick carpet that floor work. The "legs & butt workout" will, if you focus, really make itself felt the next day, and that's a great thing. Freytag is, as usual, an approachable and inspiring fitness leader. Still not feeling it? Add one more chunk of workout to your routine, and you'll have your heart rate in its target zone. --A.T. Hurley

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this too :-) April 29, 2006
Verified Purchase
I always love it when Prevention release another workout because I get bored easy and I like to mix workouts up. I've loved all of the other Prevention workouts and knew I'd love this too. Chris Freytag leads again and does another superb job. There are two aerobic routines and five targeted toning workouts. The dvd is programmable so you can do them in any order and do as many or as little as you want. That's a big plus so you don't get bored or pushed for time. You can choose whether you need to lose weight or just firm up etc. If, for example, you pick that you need to lose weight, there is a six day week with the routines mapped out for you already. That is so helpful. The moves are all basic no frills moves, but they are effective. The first cardio section is low impact and the second is a variety of low and higher impact moves making it just that little bit harder. The body parts are all the ones you want to workout; arms, butt, abs and thighs. All you really need for this dvd is dumbells and a lot of energy. This is so easy to do due to the programming, so there really is no excuse for not working out. This can be done by practically anyone.
I also love how the other two girls exercising as well, aren't the kinds that yell and shout etc. They are as professional as Chris.

I love this work out!!! The routine only takes a few times to catch on in the cardio A & B so don't worry about getting discouraged like other routines when you are falling over your own feet trying to keep up. I have lost weight utilizing the cardio and mixing and matching the other targeted areas. I have been using this DVD for 1 month now and highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joyce's comments May 15, 2006
I own all 5 of Preventions Fitness Program DVD's and I am very pleased with all of them. Chris Freytag does a great job of keeping you motivated and upbeat while working out to her videos. She also has two other women that workout with her, one does a lower impact for beginners, the other a higher impact for more advanced workouts - they do a great job!

I recently purchased her "Walk to Fitness" DVD and highly recommend this one. If you are unable to get out of your house for a brisk walk, I would recommend this DVD. There are three segements on walking - Accelerated, Strength Training and Cardio. They all make you break a sweat, sometimes I combine two of them together and work out for an hour - gets my blood pumping and makes me feel great!

I also have the Express Workout: Dance It Off DVD w/ Jenifer Galardi, she also does a great job in getting your heart pumping. Good dancing segments - good cardio workouts. This DVD is a nice change from pumping iron and streching routines. It makes you feel really upbeat!

The key for me to staying is shape is doing a variety of workouts - whether following an instructor on a DVD, using an elliptical machine, using a trendmill, taking brisk walks outside, going to the gym, etc., etc. Just keep moving - its great for your heart, as well as your looks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love It! Love It! May 16, 2006
By Katie K
This is the perfect video for me! I read Chris's book when it came out and did her move to lose videos and lost 30 pounds in a few short months. Everything she has to say just makes sense to me and it is easy to follow. I live in Phoenix, so it is hard for me to do any excercise outside right now in the 100 degree heat. I just recently got this video and love using it daily. I am able to customize my workout and do it at a level that works for me. Chris is so motivational and I feel so energized and happy when I am finished working out with her. I am so thankful to her for helping me get back in shape!

2.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginners May 9, 2006
By Maya
I travel for work, so I often rely on fitness DVDs to help me stay in shape. I've only been working out seriously for a few months, and this DVD is definitely too easy for me. There are 2 cardio workouts, 5 toning work outs, a warm up, a cool down, and an all over toning workout. This seems great, but when you actually look at the details, you'll see that the cardio workouts are only 13 minutes each, and the toning workouts are only 5 minutes each. So when you actually look at the pre-set workouts (without warm up and cool down), you're only getting about 20 minutes of real exercise.

I would say this is a good DVD if you've never exercised or you are really out of shape. But even if you've been exercising for a little while, you'll probably find it too easy. I strongly recommend The method cardio bootcamp, or 10 minute solutions carb burner, or 10 minute solutions pilates. All three of these videos will give you the ability to choose your workouts or combine smaller segments into a longer workout. If you're looking for a good toning workout, try Self Bikini Ready Fast.

I have not done any sort of exercise other than the treadmill for a couple of years. I was concerned that this would be not only too hard but would make me too sore. But, because of the way you can mix and match work outs, it has been great. I just follow the "beginner" recommended version of each work out and have done really well with minimal soreness. I Love the Menu system which makes it very east to get going without having to fast forward through a preamble each day. I would recommend this program for anyone looking to change up their work out each day and still work the entire body. It is great all the way up through advanced Intermediate.
