About the Trainer: Tracey Staehle (www.fitbytracey.com) is a NASM certified trainer and has been a fitness professional for over twenty years.  Her clients vary in age from 13-89 inspiring her to create workouts that are effective and fun for all ages and fitness levels.

"This workout offers a great mix of high-intensity cardio and super-effecitve strength moves." - Fitness Magazine


"This is a circuit routine with weights and cardio. Rather than just going from strength-training move to strength-training move as some sculpting routines do, this one includes heart-thumping moves, such as jumping jacks, in between. This more than doubles the calorie burn of just doing toning moves." - Mary Anderson, fitness director of Fitness magazine

4.0 out of 5 stars yep, it's a butt-kicker... January 2, 2009
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I am a daily exerciser who does a range of workouts, from taebo, kickboxing, yoga, salsa, step etc. I guess you could say that I have a boredom problem, so keeping it fresh with many workouts to choose from is important to me. As I get older I also look to add in resistance training to keep my bones healthy, which is really important at any age. I found the workout to be challenging (in a good way). The workout is 52 minutes long and led by Tracey Staehle, who is a certified trainer with both the AFAA (Aerobic & Fitness Association of America) & NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine). She also carries a Master's Degree in nutrition.

The workout is 52 minutes long and consists of 5 minutes of warm-up, 31 minutes of Aerobic & Toning with Weights, that alternates, 12 minutes of additional toning and 4 minutes of cool down. You will use a lighter set of weights for some of the exercises (3 lb is what I used) and heavier set (I used 5 to start, but realized 4 was already kicking my butt, so I'll work up to heavier). As you get stronger, you have the option to up your weights for a challenge when you become accustomed to it.

The routines start with an easier exercise and then you progress to a more challenging variation, which usually includes deeper squats, more body parts being active in the exercise, or in the aerobic segments, more jumping.

I would caution, that this is a higher impact routine in the aerobic section and you will be doing some jumps, which rev up the metabolism and heart-rate, but may not be especially kind to those that have any knee issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a good workout :-0 October 21, 2008
I don't know why Amazon won't release this yet, when you can already buy it online elsewhere ... so that's what I did and I like this alot.
I already have another workout of Tracey's and that's why I decided to give this a go. It's pretty good and definately more geared toward the intermediate to advanced exerciser. It is interval training with good cardio and intense toning. There are modifications if you find some moves too hard; she'll start with a base move that you can stay with, and then shows ways to add more intensity if you are feeling that way inclined. All you really need are some dumbbells and you are good to go. The dvd even comes with a little booklet about planning out healthy meals.
It's about 50 minutes all up and when you are done, you feel great. You will feel this the next day or two and work up a big sweat. I enjoyed it and will try and use this at least once a week or so along with all the other workouts I do. This is fun and Tracey is a good instructor. Give it a go.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
My comments are designed to supplement the workout specifics delineated in the other reviews.

While I agree this would be difficult for a beginner, many of the other reviewers classify this workout as intermediate to advanced, I would not consider it advanced, unless one is using really heavy weights during the resistance training sections. Even the move modifications that Tracey says are level 2, are mostly not really that advanced for serious fitness enthusiasts who have been working out hard for a while (although several are). The cardio moves change frequently, are mostly on the lower impact size, and don't really go on long enough to really be considered high intensity, although you will get a sweat going. You'll do some jump moves, but not enough to consider this a plyometric workout. The resistance training segments have some original moves which is a plus, but most are standard. The level 2 resistance moves are compound moves, so if you are like me, that makes it much harder than single focused moves, and you'll have to lower your weight. I like to use noncompound moves to really focus hard on a single muscle group and feel the pump, this is of course, a personal preference.

Just be aware, with a full body workout like this, because you are doing resistance training on the full body (legs, back, shoulders [front delts, side delts), arms (biceps and triceps), etc., and are doing generally one set of high reps, and... compound moves tend to call for exercisers to lower their weights, this type of workout is not really designed to build muscle. You will build cardio endurance and build muscle endurance, but not strength or size.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than '10 Days' January 23, 2009
Verified Purchase
I was surprised at how much I like this workout. I'm not a fan of Staehle, but this well-cued workout is nicely advanced at the level of Kelly Coffey or Cathe Friedrich. It is chaptered into cardio and weights and each section is long enough to make a difference (about 10 minutes alternating). Unlike '10 Days to a Better Body', this one allows you to do just weights or just cardio if you wish, or switch the order. It includes lots of balancing and compound moves. It also allows you to go heavy with the weights. The pace is just right and the music is pretty good as well. It is not at all the same as the other Results workout (with Cindy Whitmarsh). I really find the negative reviews here ignorant. If you're torn between the two DVDs, this one is the better one.
