5.0 out of 5 stars Loving Trek Ireland January 11, 2012
Verified Purchase
I am quite enjoying this video. It's almost like hiking outside, and in the gorgeous scenery of Ireland at that! All while being safe, sound and comfortable in my home...what a great concept. I hope they make more TrekIreland videos...I would LOVE to explore more of Ireland in this manner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trek Ireland June 12, 2011
As I have walked these paths MANY times, when not disabled...I wanted a
reminder and encouragement. Both accomplished!
Not at all shaky...but good steady filming.
WELL DONE!

5.0 out of 5 stars PRECISELY what I was looking for. March 1, 2013
Verified Purchase
This DvD is precisely what I was looking for. Lets face it, you can only listen to the same workout mix so many times.

I have a 54" Samsung DLP tv setup right in front of my treadmill and play this DvD, as I exercise, it's about as good as being there without the incredibly long flight. :) I would highly recommend this video, and will def be on the lookout for the next in this series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Painfully slow. January 3, 2013
Verified Purchase
I found this video impossible to walk with because the camera moves so slowly. I like to start at 3.5 mph, but that was way too fast; the rate in the video was more like 1 mph. It felt like I was stumbling because the scenery was moving by so slowly, compared to the speed at which I was walking. I tried all the walks, and they're all painfully slow; even the one called "Miner's Road Run" seems to be the same speed as the others, with the sound of a jogger's feet hitting the path being the only difference.

I looked all over the packaging and the DVD to see if there was some option somewhere, somehow, to make it go faster, but no luck.

I noticed too there are often moments where the video does this sort of blurred transition - hard to describe - where it seems like they had to edit out a hiker or something. It broke the walking mood for me. In some places it happens every few seconds. Even the "babbling brook" warm up, where it's just a shot of a brook like you're standing still and looking at it, is pieced together like this, and it's only five minutes long. By the way, it irritated me, too, that the menu doesn't say how long each walk is, or if it's even a walk at all ("Sunrise" is also a motionless view).

Also, the "additional information" icon that pops up once in a while is gigantic and crude. When you click it, you get the guy standing still in front of a view and talking to you, so again, it breaks the whole walking mood thing. It would've been so easy to put the guidebook stuff on an alternate audio track. I did like that the audio was just the ambient sounds of the trail, not cheesy music or "encouraging words."

Overall, it seems to be nicely done, and the views are certainly lovely and restful, but the super-slow pace makes this unusable for me.

I love they way Trek Ireland organizes their video's, you can just let is run and enjoy your workout, or you can explore the area at almost every turn.

5.0 out of 5 stars fantastic customer service August 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
I purchased this DVD to use on my treadmill and was so excited to recieve it. Unfortunately something was wrong with the DVD but I contacted Jake and he sent me a new DVD at no additional charge and it worked perfectly! Not only did he send me a new DVD but he checked up on the situation to make sure I was satisfied. Jake obviously loves his work and wants to share it with anyone interested in his beautiful country. I would definately recommend the DVD's and working with Jake.

2.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat Disappointed
Parts of the video are filmed on a woods trail. A continuous tunnel of trees is sort of boring. OTH where the scenery is more open, the view is much more enjoyable. Read more

Too slow I was expecting it to be faster, it was too slow in the beginning which bored me from the start. The scenery was beautiful and it was informative.
