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!

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.Read more ›
I love being able to work at my own fitness level. Some of the moves I did with Nicole (intermediate) and others I did with the other two cast members (advanced and beginner). I tried to push myself to the advanced level, but it was nice to be able to drop back when I needed to.
As others have said, it is also nice to see real women working out. DVD's with extremely cut and/or skeletal cast members intimidate me. I love the healthy, fit women in 28-Day Boot Camp!
The cueing is excellent. Coach Nicole always counts down to a new move after explaining it, and I like the add-on style. You do a basic move first, then add more components.
I highly recommend this DVD. First-time exercisers may want to preview it first, but anyone who has done a workout DVD will be able to jump right in and get up to speed pretty quickly. I look forward to progressing with this DVD and moving up to heavier weights as I do to keep it challenging!
