This review is based on my first 6 six days. Day 7 begins tomorrow ... WooHoo!

I am loving this 28-Day Bootcamp! This is what I wrote about my Day 1 experience on Sparkpeople.com "This was a little tougher than I thought, but a very good workout! Although I will admit the warm could be a workout [in] itself. I had to be careful with the grapevine/mambo turns as I was working out on carpet, so the turns were a bit of a challenge. I like the idea of clicking the day on the calendar that takes you to the workout. I originally thought I had to click the warm/workout/cool down separately. Nice feature."

I disagree with one of the posts that this dvd is not for beginners. Beginners can follow this fitness routine - Jewel, featured on the right, does an excellent job at the modifying the moves. And the moves can be modified even more. I have a shoulder/back injury so I'm limited with some of the moves. If you have never done a particular move before, of course it will seem difficult at first, but keep going, keep moving. If you find that you have two left feet, take your time, you WILL get it. If you work out on carpet, the mambo turns will be a challenge or just don't turn. I weigh 219, and consider myself an advanced beginner/intermediate exerciser.

I have nothing negative to say about this dvd. Coach Nicole's positive attitude upbeat attitude keeps you going and her cuing is excellent. The 28-Day Calendar is by far, the best feature I've seen - well structured! More fitness dvds should be like this. Just click and your right where you need to be to get started!

And Ditto on Exercise Junkie's review ....

EDITED TO ADD:
EDITED - On 1/28/2012 I completed the 28-Day Boot Camp dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome workout variety for any exercise level! January 6, 2012
Format:DVD
This DVD has so much variety--it's not just your basic curls and squats that you've seen 100 times before. Coach Nicole has created fun and unique exercise combinations that are interesting to do and you really feel them, too! I love the 28 day workout calendar on the DVD menu, and the plan itself has so much variety to keep you from getting bored and help create "muscle confusion". The 28-day plan starts with shorter workouts to ease you into exercise and progresses you gradually over four weeks to harder and longer workouts. The 30 Minute Challenge routine is the best--it uses dumbbells like a kettlebell and you really work up a sweat. I was skeptical that a single DVD could really show so many intensity levels as it claims to ("three intensity levels for every exercise"), but it really delivers!

4.0 out of 5 stars "28 days" to fitness for beginners April 5, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD features a 28 day planned calender, in which you click the box representing day 1 to day 28, to do the exercise (or rest) for that day. It looks like a regular calender with 28 little boxes. So, if you click the box for day 1, the cardio burst workout will appear for you to work out for about 22 minutes.

Here is the calender plan from day 1 to day 7.

Day 1 (22 minutes) Cardio burst
Day 2 (22 minutes) Short cardio-sculpt
Day 3 Rest (or cross train with another workout)
Day 4 (22 minutes) Cardio burst
Day 5 (22 minutes) Short cardio-sculpt
Day 6 Rest (or cross train with another workout)
Day 7 (22 minutes) Short cardio-sculpt

From day 8 to day 28, the workouts increase in intensity and variety. Times are approximate for this above section.

~~~

If don't want to follow the calender, you may customize your own workouts from the following list.

Warm up (6:14)
Cardio burst (12:24)
Short cardio-sculpt (11:56)
Tone & burn (21:12)
Total body challenge (31:12)
Cool down (4:44)

You may also play all (87:42) to work out for about 88 minutes.

~~~

This DVD seems designed to help people lose weight, with modifications for beginners and intermediate. This DVD is probably not intended for experienced exercisers.

For me, this was a basic, calm, easy, and almost sedate exercise workout when I did the "play all" workout which was about 88 minutes. (I have been exercising for a long while).

Coach Nicole instructs and works with two other young ladies. She explains clearly, with one lady showing the basic moves and another lady showing the more advanced moves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, a DVD for REAL people! January 6, 2012
Format:DVD
I love this DVD for so many reasons. Coach Nicole is so personable and encouraging. Her "back-up" girls have "real" bodies -- something you don't find very often on workout DVD's. The 28 plan on the DVD is awesome -- just click on the day you are on and it automatically starts the workout. So cool! I haven't seen any other DVD's with this feature. Finally, there is a count-down clock on the screen so you know how much time you have left, which definitely helped me stay focused and motivated!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not For Bad Knees March 28, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I began the 28 day boot camp this morning and I knew I was in trouble before the warm-up was over. I am pretty active - I do at least 1 hour every day of some type of cardio (mostly Leslie Sansone or Zumba). However, I have had knee surgery on the right knee, torn cartilage on the left knee and a broken right knee. Coach Nicole seems partial to squats and lunges. While she says that your joints should be getting warm, my knees feel like they're on fire and the noise coming from the left knee can't be good. Even trying to follow the modified version doesn't work. I would not recommend this workout for anyone who has chronic knee issues. Otherwise, I believe it would be a highly effective workout for anyone with good knees.

What do I need to do this workout?
You need a pair of light handweights (depending on your strength and experience). A yoga mat is also helpful.
