I'm not a high-impact fan of exercising. I do workout several times a week thought, mostly low-impact cardio and walking on a treadmill.
You have two options, plus the yoga stretch at the end. The first one combines weights with your cardio. It's excellent! You're not flinging weights around, it's very controlled. The second option is a short-boost cardio. You do your routine and then add a short burst of cardio to get your heartrate up. I think anyone can do this. It's not bone jarring. The yoga stretch at the end was surprising delightful. It felt really good. I've taken yoga classes before and I still felt like this was 'right-on'. YOu don't need expereince with yoga - she'll guide you right through it.
It is a great workout. It's become my staple workout. I do it 3-4 times a week and I recently added her 2-week turnaround strength. Sometimes I try to do both options but if I'm pressed for time I only do one or the other. I prefer the strength training with weights cardio. I feel really good after that.
You won't regret this. Chris is a great motivator. I am a little creeped out by the snarling lady in the back but the other girls is very pleasant. :)
I really like the first workout using light weights and you can increase the weights later to make it more challenging. I also like how Chris Freytag explains the moves, such as lunging forward is like climbing hills. She doesn't come off as being fake and most definitely is not annoying. The second workout is great too and you don't use hand weights. I like doing BOTH workouts for a complete cardio routine and then follow it up with Prevention's "The Abs Advantage" workout.
You can't go wrong with any of Chris Freytag's DVD's...she's GREAT and I have almost all of the Prevention DVD's that she instructs.
The first cardio workout is the Power Walk, and it clocks in at just under 15 minutes. It starts with about a 2-minute warm-up with simple moves like shoulder rolls, low kicks, knee ups, and step taps. Then, Freytag and Jessica pick up weights, training the upper body and lower body together to increase the cardio effect. The moves are easy-to-follow--e.g., walk forward with bicep curls, knee ups with shoulder press, side steps with shoulder lifts, and side squats--and Freytag strings them together in a simple combination. To add interest, she also does moves such as a "hill climb" (front lunge) combined with a rear glute lift. She concludes the segment with a box squat/running man (knee repeater) sequence and a "victory lap."
The second cardio segment, which is a bit longer at just over 16 minutes, is the Interval Walk. Here Freytag alternates 2 minutes of low-impact walking moves with 30 seconds of a more intense, higher impact interval. She continues to utilize very simple choreography, including knee ups, hamstring curls, heel touches, and half jacks.Read more ›

It's an okay workout, but not very FUN. For someone who is very inactive and just needs somewhere to start, this would be a good video to do that.Published 14 months ago by Kate A. Walker
