4.0 out of 5 stars Good DVD...a less intense version of p90x December 16, 2010
By Sam
The Situation has a lot of good ideas and exercises in this DVD. I feel like its an extremely simplified version of p90x with about 1/10 of the material and instruction. This is a very good casual workout DVD, and I would recommend it to someone who isn't crazy about fitness but wants to improve their shape a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Situation Goes Hard. Period. November 30, 2010
By Flash

I was doing a segment of this workout with moderately HEAVY weights and it was an INTENSE quick workout. As a guy who trains; on a scale from "A breeze to ridiculously hard" I rate this as "not a joke" seriously. I actually have the DVD, notice the review dates, this came out November 23, 2010.

5.0 out of 5 stars Something fresh to keep things interesting. December 21, 2010
When I saw that The Situation had a workout video I just had to get it. I used to be an aerobics instructor and personal trainer and know all the basic exercise moves and was surprised to see some new ones in this video that I was not familiar with! I am a fan of The Situation, so just having him on a workout video is enough to motivate me to exercise and he makes it fun! After doing the same thing over and over (watching the same dvds and the same instructors), I was so happy to find something and someone new to add to my exercise library! I hope he makes some more exercise dvds.

Also, I liked that he had another male and a female doing the exercises while he talks to us, but it seemed weird that he didn't call her by name - he kept saying "my girl" when he referred to her. I would have liked him to refer to her by her name. The guy, Unit, is one of Mike's long-time friends. I would have LOVED to see other Jersey Shore cast members in the video - maybe in the next one???

I think it is really cool of The Situation to give a free 10-minute download of some of his ab exercises. I think that is a stand up thing to do because not many people are giving away free downloads.

One major plus about this dvd is that it is divided into 5 sections: one on upper body, one on arms, one on glutes and legs and two on abs. That's a plus when you only want to work on upper body or only want to work on legs, etc. You can customize you own workout and do what you want on the days you want. And I have to say, his "secret exercise" is really cool!!

When I was reading some of the negative comments, it reminded me of when The Situation talks about haters - he says it right in his exercise video! And it's true, these people making these negative comments are all just jealous haters!

5.0 out of 5 stars The funniest DVD you'll ever see November 2, 2011
By Mika
Verified Purchase
The best part of this workout DVD is watching Situation provide 2 or 3 rep examples of exercises, then stop completely to make bad jokes and criticize his buddy "Unit" and two random fitness chicks (one with a glaring gap in her two front teeth, yikes) as they keep doing another two dozen or so repetitions, at times visibly in pain. The Situation rambles badly, and if you have seen the viral blooper real for this DVD it is obvious what was included is simply the best of a lot of very bad takes. The best parts of the DVD: a) Situation does the wrong exercise for two reps and gets called out by "Unit", b) Situation accidentally calls his buddy "butter" instead of "brother" and "Unit" unfortunately retorts "I get spread like butter" thinking it witty, c) pretty much everything else.
What is obvious from this workout DVD is the exercises are not easy, and although the juiced up idiots are juiced up idiots, they are still strong and as they suffer, the fat American shall suffer 20x worse. As a comedy DVD, it is well worth the price (whoever slapped the footage together was well aware how ridiculous their star is and there is a clear passive aggressive tone throughout), and even the worst haters will enjoy this for the train wreck it is.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is definely just for entertainment. January 7, 2011
By Y. Ward
I've never watched JS. From what I do know about that show is from clips from other shows and SNL skits. Anyway, I bought this DVD since Sitch does have a great body and I was looking for a new workout DVD.

He can't even count ("we have 10 or 15 seconds left") and admits he's not a fitness expert. He doesn't have proper form most of the time and his other 2 helpers had different form than he had in some of the segments.

The ab exercises, some I'd never heard of before & that was a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for White Elephant Exchange December 21, 2010
I purchased this DVD for a White Elephant exchange and it was a hit! We later popped it in and laughed until we cried. As far as a true workout video, I don't think I could take this guy seriously. But it was worth the money just for the laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much better than you'd assume it would be.. May 22, 2012
Verified Purchase
I first saw this video on Netflix. I have to admit, I put off trying it because I thought it would be cheesy. I've never watched the Jersey Shore and I'm not a big fan of reality shows. I am so glad that I decided to try it one day.
I feel so guilty for being so judgemental. This is a great workout video. For all the people putting down the Situation, calling it "cheesy", and not a good workout...I have to wonder if they were watching the video I watched.

To me, the video was absolutely hilarious! Yes, okay, it was cheesy, in a funny way. This man honestly has a sense of humor and was making the workout fun. It was like watching a good SNL skit with a workout as a bonus. I loved how he joked around with his friend, "The Unit" and joked around with the women. I loved how he kept saying "Situation" every chance he got. It was obvious he was messing around and just having fun with that.

"Not a good workout". Hmmmmm...I'm wondering if these people actually tried the workout. It was pretty serious stuff. I work out three times a week and after this workout, I felt it for a few days. It kicked my butt! I feel like EVERY part of my body was worked out. I have yet to find another video that made me feel this good. I felt many good results. I do admit one fault, I wish he would have explained how important using the right postures are. For people who never worked out before, they could get hurt. Outside of that, workout wise, it was really amazing. Maybe he's not a fitness guru, but to me, it was obvious that he wanted to make sure people had fun and he was serious about helping people.

So, to sum it up, if you don't have a sense of humor, get offened too easily, and don't want to really workout, don't watch it.
