At least I thought I was in good shape until I popped this DVD in. This is a crazy hard workout that will workout every fiber in your body.
Bob starts with Level 1 and gives you 20 minutes of heart pounding, lunge screaming and weight lifting cardio...at Level 1??
Jillian is next and she doesn't fail at delivering a 10 minute, high intensity level 2 cardio workout. Like I stated earlier, I've got her whole collection of workout DVD's and this 10 minutes with her, is just as bad (good) as a few of the 20 minute DVD's I've got with her.
Bringing up the rear is Kim...and this one is a let down. For a level 3 cardio workout, she barely breaks even with Bob's Level 1. Now, if you do all 3 in a row like I do, then it does get a little tiring at the end with her, but if you just pop in her section for 10 minutes, I don't think you'd be pushing yourself very hard. In my own opinion, the workout difficulty would have gone Kim, Jillian and then Bob...do those jumping lunges and tell me that's not Level 3 cardio!
All in all, this is a great workout DVD to add to your collection. The ability to customize your workouts is great and the some of the moves are new and I've never done them before.
Start 2008 off right and lay down the cash for this. You won't be disappointed in the workout it gives you.
You can play any segment in any order which I like to avoid boredom, or you can choose some of the challenging premixes. Bob leads a bootcamp segment where you can do the moves with or without weights to make it tougher if you want. Jillian doesn't mess around with her high intensity drills. They are tough, but stick to it for a while and it will get easier. Then at the end, Kim does kickboxing (which really gets your heart rate up). Some of seasons 3 and 4 are here too and they look great.
I like this workout because it's tough and yet fun and I've only done it once so far, but I'm still feeling it and can't wait to try it again because I know it will get easier and it's a definate calorie and fat burner.
The reasons I didn't give it 5-stars are as follows.
Cardio level 1: Bob is great with the routines--they are definitely challenging. Just like the previous Biggest Loser workout, there's no sense of 'being in sinc'--I just choose my pace and stick with it because nobody keeps up with the music--not that the music is much to begin with. I am also used to the 'mirror image' concept, i.e, when the trainer says got to your right they are actually going to their left so both the viewer and participants are going in the same direction. Not so here--you have to pay attention if you want to stay somewhat syncronized.
Level 2: Jillian is quite relentless and you get no breaks for 10 solid minutes. No major problems here.
Level 3: This is the disappointing one. As noted in other reviews, it's not harder than the other two levels--I am honestly a little grateful for that because I don't think I could do it if it was harder--after the first two levels, my legs are protesting big time. It does get a little hard towards the end. I found Kim irritating. She appears unnaturally happy. I counted 6-8 times that she repeated, 'This is your cardio session/workout'--it gets very annoying. I am a big Turbo Jam fan so I found the kickboxing routines somewhat awkward at times. In one of the routines, you have to watch your knees if you are on carpet otherwise you could twist them causing injury.
All in all, definitely worth buying.

|Question about this DVD!||
If you can raise your arms up without hitting the ceiling and do a moderate jump without bashing your head, I'd say you'll be fine.

I thought my cardio was up to speed, until i met BOB. His workout is tough but so worth it. Jillian's workout is great too. As usual (same as in other Biggest Loser DVDs) Kim only does kickboxing. Kickboxing is a good workout, but her moves are so repetitve (i.e. both DVD very similar). I am... Read More
