This is a pretty easy workout. You won't necessarily sweat if you are an advanced exerciser; this is mainly for beginners or people who've been out of action for a while. There are basic exercises to do; no tough choreography. You can do the workout in order, or pre-programmed workouts that are 20-30 minutes if you are busy or tired.
The walking workout is so easy to follow. There are the usual marches and side touches. Then there are toning segments that are also easy to do and will help you firm up. The 10 minute stretch is sort of yoga based but it's easy enough to follow and is really relaxing. All you need for the workout is light weights and you are good to go. I'll say it again - it's not tough and not designed for advanced people, but it's still a good way to burn calories on busy days or if you are starting out again. I really like it.
The steps aren't hard to follow. I lost my way a few times but was able to pick right back up on the next beat. The instructor is encouraging without being annoying. She says things like, "you are doing such good things for your body." I find that statement to be literal and motivating and much less patronizing than the super perky, "you can do it!!" kind of cheerleading other fitness instructors push.
The format of the DVD is notable as well. The components of the workout are set up in chapters - warm up, walking workout, lower body toning, upper body toning, core strengthening, yoga, cool down. This means you can pick and choose which sections you want to do in a day if you're pressed for time, or of course, you can press "play all" and do the entire workout.
I can imagine this DVD will lose its usefulness as my fitness improves, but at this stage, it's exactly what I was looking for.
