I've always liked George Foreman's lovable, big teddy bear-like personality (at least how he's been in more recent years), so I thought I would check out one of his workouts; Circuit Walk is the first video I've tried from his Walk It Off series. One concern I had was that it would be too easy for me, as I am an experienced exerciser, but I was pleasantly suprised to discover that this workout could be easily modified to make it more challenging.

Although George is a prominent feature during the video, the workout is actually led by veteran instructor Petra Kolber, with George making occasional motivational comments throughout. Petra starts the workout with a basic aerobic warm-up, leading you through simple steps such as marches (the "walk"), side steps, heel taps forward, knee lifts, and the "George shuffle," which is just a walk forward and back; the warm-up lasts just over 5 minutes. Things start to move a bit more quickly for the main cardio segment of the workout, although the steps remain very basic. Petra does add a few variations such as front and side stomps, but everything is very easy to follow, especially since Petra always previews each new move first and tells you that you can stick with the walk if you are having trouble following along. During the cardio portion, there are also a few toning moves included in the form of squats and lunges. After about 23 minutes, you begin cooling down by returning to the moves from the warm-up, and then the last couple of minutes of the workout consist of a few simple lower body stretches, bringing the total time in at just under 32 minutes.

I wouldn't call this a true circuit workout, as the toning segments are pretty minimal.

Nice!!!

George is cheery, warm and motivating; Petra explains the moves well; the camera work is good and actually focused on the body parts you need to see in order to imitate the moves.

You don't need extra equipment. You don't need a lot of space, or even a mat.

They show two levels: basic and intermediate. You can really work your leg muscles in this one if you want to. But you don't HAVE to - you can keep it at a lower level if you prefer.

The music is more rappy (rappish?) than I prefer, but not intolerable even to this classical music lover.

I'm no health nut yet somehow, George Foreman manages to make this fun! I'm very pleased with this purchase.

Tape runs 35 minutes.

This workout is based on circuit training, which combines cardiovascular and strength training. Unfortunately, all of the strength work in this DVD consists of squats and lunges, and you do a lot of them. This makes the workout much harder than it would seem. It also makes it kind of repetitive and boring.

The workout starts out fun, as you warm up and Petra demonstrates different moves you're going to do besides marching in place. These are pretty familiar to anyone who has done Leslie Sansone's workouts: side steps, hamstring curls, knee lifts, and step heels. Petra does them in a dancy way, going along with the music. I enjoyed this part, along with the upbeat soundtrack. Then the squats and lunges started. You do 6 sets of squats and lunges in all, each set separated by walking moves. You usually do around 16 squats or lunges in each set. The first three sets are squats, the next three lunges. So in total, you're going to do around 50 squats and 50 lunges. This is quite difficult for a workout marketed to beginners. I was very sore after doing this.

The middle of the workout is quite boring, as in between the intervals of squats and lunges, you mostly march and march and march. A few other steps are thrown in, but not used for very long before you go back to a march. This made the cardio portion of the workout rather easy. Towards the end of the workout, the steps were mixed up a bit and became more fun.

Overall, this workout had potential, but I feel the excessive amount of squats and lunges made it a bit too strenuous for beginners, but the walking portions were too easy for intermediates.

I had never heard of this workout before. I am trying to start getting into shape and this is the first DVD I bought. I worked out with this video for the firt time today & I can't wait to do it again! It was so much fun. It wasn't too serious they added elements of fun and laughter. I thought the DVD was good enough just to sit down and watch for entertainment. George & Petra are a hilarious team.

I heard George Foreman recently on a local radio talk show. He talked a little bit about this "Walk It Off With George" series but wasn't pushing it in a hard sell manner. His good-natured kidding and his own story of getting way out of shape, becoming a couch potato and then working his way back to the heavy-weight title was inspiring. He's just as delightful in this easy to follow workout. You don't have to worry about getting lost in fancy steps and routines. If you, perhaps like me, are trying to get yourself back into shape, feel like you're starting from scratch - again, then I would highly recommend Walk It Off With George. His warmth and good nature is what I really like, and is what shines through in this program.
