Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Workout queen Denise Austin knows that a low-impact cardio routine can be just as effective as a high-impact one. If it's structured and paced like the workout on Denise Austin: Shape Up & Shed Pounds, the routine can get your heart rate up and really help you push your limits. While this disc is targeted at beginners or those who might be easing back into a workout regimen--and it is ideal for those exercisers--even those who are fit and work out regularly will feel results by doing Austin's routine. Austin has created a series of moves with little to no break in the 30 minutes, mixing fun Latin dance moves with power walking and her favorite squats and lunges. There's also a great 20-minute toning and stretching routine (a mat or thick towel will be useful for the floor exercises). The two routines can be combined for a thorough one-hour workout, head to toe, or done on alternate days for those who want to take it a little more slowly. As always, Austin focuses on proper posture and form, and her bubbly encouragement helps cheer on her students. Those wanting a new workout to add to an existing exercise regimen, or those wanting something doable now but also one that can become more challenging as their fitness level grows, will really see results doing Denise Austin: Shape Up & Shed Pounds. Next stop, a more fit, toned you! --A.T. Hurley

4.0 out of 5 stars Two workouts, one cardio and one stretch & tone December 16, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This DVD contains 2 workouts for beginners who have been exercising for a while or one may use them on a light exercise day which is what I did. In both workouts, Denise Austin works with 4 ladies. No equipment is needed, except maybe a mat for the second workout.

1. Low-Impact Cardio (31 minutes, 36 seconds)
In general, this is a light to moderate workout. Exercises are non-stop and Ms. Austin moves briskly through a variety of exercises. The workout includes traditional aerobics, small jumps, balance work, and a few easy Latin steps.

2. Stretch & Tone (20 minutes, 27 seconds)
This workout is divided into standing work and floor work. Standing work is comfortably paced with stretches and light standing moves. Then, Ms. Austin moves on to the floor and the exercises become a little bit more intense and faster.

Here are the floor exercises.
Modified push-ups
Mobility work
Low hover
Bridge
Hip swing
Pulses
Ab work
Crunch
Leg lift
Bicycle
Side plank and lift
Cobra
Superman
Reverse plank or bridge with triceps

This ends with a few stretches on the floor.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Suprise Workout December 16, 2011
By Jen B
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am an intermediate level exerciser in my early 40s. I thought this might be too easy because it said "perfect for beginners". What a surprise! The cardio workout is low impact but it does get your heart rate up if you put in an honest effort. I even broke into a light sweat. There's walking and some fun dance moves that will take someone klutzy (like me!) a few times through to figure out. It has been a long time since Denise put out a 30 minute workout that is cardio only. I really enjoyed it! The tone section is a pleasant, easy workout for days that you are feeling tired or if you are sore; it is 20 minutes and tones the whole body!

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging and Rewarding January 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
These workouts are just what you need if you want to have results quickly. The first improvement for me was not visible but my flexibility and range of motion were improved. That made doing these and all exercises correctly much easier. The outward results came with time and effort just as with any successful program. The two work outs are great together or separate.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love Denise! July 2, 2012
Format:DVD
Previously I was in great shape and then slipped to an unhealthy place. I've owned Denise Austin workouts over the years so decided to try a new one. I love these workouts! I am not coordinated at all - hate aerobics at the gym since I look like an idiot - so love that I can do this at home, work at my own pace, and work up a sweat. Denise hasn't changed over the years, she's still you biggest cheerleader, which I love. I don't enjoy boot camp style instructors. If you're looking for someone who screams at you, look elsewhere. If you're looking for someone who tells you to "give yourself a pat on the back" then Denise is for you! I also like that the workouts are low impact - I have bad knees - and you can certainly bump things up a notch if you need to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! February 14, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I purchased this dvd after reading other reviews and am glad I did. I'm 48 and have been working out cosistently for about 7 years. When I saw the description was low impact I wanted to check it out. My knees and shoulders can't take the hard pounding of the higher impact workouts and this seems to be working fine. It consists of two workouts. One is a 30 min low impact cardio which involes some dance style moves which make it enjoyable and the other is a 20 min stretch and tone which I think is very important no matter what type if workout you do. Denise is an inspiration for older woman to keep up the hard work and stay fit and healthy!

2.0 out of 5 stars More dance oriented than I like, kind of hard to follow November 19, 2013
By Jessica
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was a little iffy about this when I got it after viewing the preview on Collage.com. I found this to be a terrible workout. Denise does not have you stay at a move very long, just 2-4 repetitions. She changed moves right when I was finally catching on. Also, it is more dance oriented than I like. I found myself having to leave out some moves because I either could not do them fast enough or they were awkward for me as a person who struggles with coordination. For example, she does these side steps with stomach twists that I could not do at all, so I just stuck to the side steps.She also did turns that I found hard to do in this workout with the other moves. I had to change some moves to be more user friendly for me. If you like dance and like short bursts of activity you may like this workout. I found it hard to follow.

Denise Austin seems like a very kind person so that is a definite positive about the video and her in general. I have other workouts by Mrs. Austin that I really like. Both are her walking workouts and they are not dance oriented at all.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for real beginners January 29, 2013
By Karen
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I gave this 3 stars because the title is misleading. This is sold as a weight loss, low-impact workout for beginners. There is no one in the video who even remotely has weight to lose, so there is no one you can look to to model modifications to some of the more challenging movements. I am a 50 year old with significant weight to lose and arthritis issues. I cannot jump up and down, balance on one foot while bending over, etc... I hope to get to where I can do those things, but I can't yet. Combine this with the awful cuing of Denise the annoying hyperactive elf, and it was nearly impossible to follow. She never tells you ahead of time what move you are going to change to before she changes, and then she only does about 2 or 3 reps before changing again (unless of course she says "a couple more" in which case she does at least 5 more!). She does a poor job of explaining correct body position for each move and the camera work constantly cuts off the feet so you can't even verify the move visually. The workout itself might be fun for the more intermediate exerciser or a beginner who only has a little weight to lose, but it is definitely not for anyone starting a weight-loss regimen with serious weight to lose. I much prefer the Leslie Sansone video I bought at the same time.
