"Are you ready?" asks the tag line for The Biggest Loser: Workout--Boot Camp. "You bet you are." Or at least you'd better be, as this 55-minute regimen will be a challenge for anyone looking to drop some weight and get in shape--and that includes those experienced at this sort of thing. Heck, even the brief warm-up, the first of five segments, is tough, as instructor Bob Harper leads his charges through a variety of squats, twists, kicks, and lunges (as one user noted drolly, "he is very fond of lunges") designed to get your motor running. The three Boot Camp levels that follow, ranging in length from 10 to 20 minutes, feature a variety of exercises, from traditional pushups (although there's nothing traditional about the so-called "walking pushup," which is better seen than described), jumping jacks, and cardio bursts to serious arm work (the use of hand weights is recommended; a medicine ball and elastic band are required for other undertakings), abs strengtheners, and so on. Many of the moves are not merely demanding but complex, especially at first, with numerous combinations of moves and virtually no pauses between; while Harper has a good rapport with the Biggest Loser contestants, including several winners, who demonstrate these sequences, by no means does he go easy on them. But that's a large part of the appeal. These are not the kind of smarmy, smiling pros one sees on so many videos; they're fit, but far from perfect, and you can really see them working. And in the end, the results speak for themselves. --Sam Graham

Product Description

Just like the contestants on NBC's hit show, you too can rev up your fat-burning furnace and experience dramatic weight loss in less time. Join "The Biggest Loser" trainer, Bob, and show contestant winners and finalists for a 6-8 week program that beats the bulge one intensity level at a time. Begin with Boot camp 1 and as you improve, add on Boot camps 2 and 3 for a powerful workout that challenges every muscle with dynamic moves designed to give those unwanted pounds the boot! WARM-UP (5 Minutes): Prepare your body for boot camp with athletic conditioning moves that get the heart pumping and the muscles warm. LEVEL 1 (Weeks 1 and 2) -Boot camp Level 1 (20 Minutes): Bob turns on the burn with upper- and lower-body strength intervals, then revs your metabolism with calorie-crushing cardio. LEVEL 2 (Weeks 3 and 4) - Boot camp Level 2 (15 Minutes): Pick up the pace and drop the pounds with Bob's innovative power moves that integrate fat-blasting bursts of cardio. LEVEL 3 (Weeks 5 and 6) - Boot camp Level 3 (10 Minutes): Challenge your balance and fine-tune your physique using bands and weights to further chisel your newfound muscle. COOL-DOWN (5 Minutes): Reward and energize your body with athletic and yoga-inspired stretches that soothe tight muscles and improve posture.

I'm a physical therapist, so I am extremely critical of exercise videos, and poor form/instruction makes me crazy. I've also never seen the show Biggest Loser, so I didn't know any of the participants here and I didn't really know what to expect. But I do like working out at home sometimes and this video got great reviews, so I gave it a try. I echo the great reviews: This is an excellent workout, both challenging and well put-together, and the instruction is top-notch.

The Cast: This workout is led by Bob, who I take to be a trainer from the show. Bob manages what very few do: he is likable without being syrupy, and motivating without being obnoxious. His form is perfection that makes my PT heart sing, and his instruction and cueing are perfect as far as safe and effective form. He makes me want to watch the show. Working out with Bob is Ali, who I think is the season 5 winner and who has form as close to perfect as a non-professional gets. When Bob's talking, watch Ali for form. There are also Bill (S4 winner?) and Bernie (at home winner - whatever that is) - they both have good form and Bernie is charming. Michelle is in 2 of the 3 segments - she has very good form herself, second only to Ali. The last 2, who thankfully are not in every segment, are Vicky and Heba. Heba is often the demonstrator of the modified form of an exercise and I think this is a HUGE mistake. (It's why I give 4 stars instead of 5.) Her form is dreadful, in almost every exercise and position. Please don't watch her! Having modifications is crucial, but they should NOT be given to the least fit person to demonstrate - they should be given to a very fit person who can demonstrate safe and perfect form to the beginners who are likely following the modifications. Bad call on that casting.

4.0 out of 5 stars Feel the Burn and Become the Biggest Loser! January 10, 2009
By K.H. :)
Format:DVD
This is a great workout that can grow with you as your strength and stamina develop. This workout is probably too intense for the true beginner, but would provide an excellent workout for the advanced beginner to intermediate exerciser. There are 3 separate workouts (called Levels) that progress in difficulty. Level 1 lasts 20 minutes and consists of an interval workout that mixes cardio with strength moves that work the upper and lower body simultaneously. Level 2 is 15 minutes and has more challenging moves such as squat thrusts, jumping pushups, tricep dips with a leg lifts and one-arm pushups. This section has some high impact moves, so be prepared to jump. Fortunately, Heba and Vicky show low impact versions, so you don't ever have to jump if you don't want to. Finally, Level 3 is 10 minutes and focuses on strength moves to really exhaust the muscles and add definition. A warm-up and cool-down are included. The stretching section is excellent. Bob doesn't really do the moves, but he coaches and helps the contestants maintain proper form.

You can customize your workout by selecting which levels you want to do and the order you want to do them at the beginning of you workout. You can do each level once, more than once or not at all. Or you can choose the Maximum Results program which has preset selections based on how many weeks you've been doing the program.

Equipment Needed: Hand Weights, Resistance Band, Medicine Ball (however the band and ball are optional and the moves are also shown without them)

Things That Could Be Improved: My only complaint is that sometimes the contestants performing the workout don't always demonstrate the best form, and will sometimes randomly do their own thing. Your best bet is to follow Allie if you want to do the move correctly.

I not only own the other Biggest Loser dvds, but do my daily workout from a selection of about 100 dvds. Still, this was a "must have" to add to my collection...as that was my first thought after doing it.

I've always found Bob to be one of the best motivators. He doesn't just do a move that you follow and move on, he shows you as a coach how to do it correctly so that you gain maximum benefit from it.
This dvd is both cardio and sculpting and this creates maximum fat burning...you'll burn lots of calories during the cardio portions, then the sculpting will help you increase muscle mass which, thereby, increases your metabolism and burns even more calories even while you are at rest.

Even if you own the other Biggest Loser workouts, this one adds new moves, new people, more variety and great results.

I typically rotate all my workouts so that I have constant variety from my collection but I found myself continually going back to this dvd time and again and back to back.

Therefor, it needed to recieve some accolades via Amazon...Bob succeeded once again with a "must have" workout that all can do!

And, on that note, it should be noted whether you workout daily like myself or you are just beginning, he has moves for either class of fitness persona. You can follow along with the easy program, or go full steam once you improve...either way, the moves are easy to follow and produce rapid results.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old guy, with a bad knee April 28, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I sweat. I strain. I have to be careful of my knee (ACL injury). Everything hurts. I'm 61. Bob Harper makes me do impossible things. I want to die - or kill him.

I've used all the BL DVD's before this one, and this is clearly the hardest. But, after 8 weeks, I've seen the biggest positive results with it. Be careful. Use light weights at first. Don't be afraid to modify some of the exercises, or even to drop out (but come back). If you're new at working out, start with the original BL DVD The Biggest Loser Workout, Vol. 1

I love this DVD! But, if you're not serious, and haven't trained for awhile (if ever) don't go there. At least not at first. Be gentle to yourself. There's plenty of time. Just get started.

Biggest Loser BootCamp advice
What does Bob Harper mean on the Video when he mentions....at several times...that this Boot Camp video and the Yoga for weight loss video complement each other.....does it mean do them together, or alternate them on different days. I wish it were explained in the tips.
