5.0 out of 5 stars Fast results, fun workout! June 3, 2010

I love love love this workout. Chris is so nice and not annoying. She's very sweet and I find myself smiling.
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. :)

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE this workout! June 12, 2010
Verified Purchase
I really like the variety of moves in this workout. They're easy to do and very effective. There are quite a bit of lunges so if you have bad knees, you might not like it. Chris Freytag is an excellent instructor and cues well so it's very easy to follow along. I like the fact that it's not old school of jumping around in high gear to the point that you can't catch your breath. You will feel this workout but you won't be out of breath trying to keep up. As I said, they're easy to do and very effective.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Liz In Va February 28, 2010
This is a great program that is easy to follow and effective. There are three parts, the first 15 minutes is powerwalking with hand weights (the use of weights is a great idea and the upper body moves are effective), the second part (15 minutes) gets more into cardio with several two minute low impact cardio walking circuits and each finishes up with a high impact modification. The last 10 minutes are yoga. This is perfect for someone who doesn't have alot of time as you can do one segment a day or all three and still get an effective work out.

The goal of this exercise DVD by instructor Chris Freytag is to provide various workout options to get you moving every day for two weeks--hence the "2 Week Turnaround" in the title. Freytag offers two cardio walking workouts, each about 15 minutes long, which can be used together or separately, and a Yoga Strength segment which can serve as either a cool-down or a stand-alone practice. Freytag is jointed by two background exercisers, Christine and Jessica, who show easier and harder modifications, respectively. They are working out in a bright indoor studio with the Prevention logo appearing on the side walls. Names of the exercises appear on the bottom of the screen as they occur.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cardio workout September 2, 2013
Verified Purchase
This cardio workout was perfect for me. I am a runner, hiker, cardio by DVD and lift weights. I am coming off of a knee injury that sidelined me for 1 year that included twice weekly therapy. The first DVD from Amazon helped strengthen my knee. Now I am ready for full cardio and "2 week turnaround" was the perfect balance of intermediate physical activity without the pounding my knee does not need. Chris was not too talky and her explanations clear. The light weights are also preparing me for heavier weights when my knee says it's ready.
