5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite workout! January 12, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Violet Zaki is one of my favorite video instructors and she really hit this one out of the park. The workouts are fun and innovative. I love that she switches up the cardio and doesn't repeat the same intervals over and over. It keeps the workout exciting and doesn't allow you to drift off.

In addition to the great workouts, the chaptering is fantastic. You have the choice of doing everything (warm up, both routines and cool down), or you can pick just one workout, or you can pick either workout with warm up and cool down. The options are already broken out for you so there's no fiddling around to program your set.

Each routine includes strength with cardio intervals and she uses combination moves for double duty effect. Some of these moves are more on the intermediate/advanced side and require good balance, but there is a background exerciser who uses modifications throughout so even someone relatively new to exercise should be able to follow along. I love the yoga-influenced cool down; it's 9 wonderful minutes of stretching and letting go. (Note: The cardio sculpt workouts are about 20 minutes long so adding the warm up and cool down make for a longer, approx. 30 minute, workout.)

There's also a bonus abs routine. Again, she doesn't disappoint. It's around 8 minutes and includes some (optional) weighted work as well as toe dips (a personal favorite) and ends with a nice little stretch. Included with the bonus features is a 5-minute preview of the Weight Loss Pilates workout. It's probably one of the most useful previews I've come across as it makes a nice little add-on to the abs.

Zaki manages to be tough but encouraging. Her warmth and personality really shine through and, IMO, she is unmatched at creating challenging, yet doable, workouts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Violet Zaki has changed my life!!!! January 27, 2009
Format:DVD
Violet Zaki is infectious! I spent the last 15 years buying workout DVDs only to have them collect dust while I sat on the couch and watched television. Until someone suggested that I get a DVD taught by Violet Zaki - then everything changed. She has the most amazing energy, and although extremely challenging, her DVDs make you want to finish each workout and never give up. I always find time to complete my workout, even if I don't do both 20 minute workouts in one sitting. Some days I do them both at once, other days I will do one in the morning and one before I go to sleep, and sometimes I can only find time to complete 1 portion of the DVD in a day. However I can fit it in, I make sure I complete both 20 minute workouts 4-5 times per week. The combination of cardio and scuplt really gives you a completely balanced workout. I have seen major changes to my body since I have started working out to Violet Zaki DVDs, and Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt is just the newest (and quite possibly my favorite) edition to my collection. If you already work out, I would definitely recommend adding Cardio Sculpt to your routine. If you don't work out, this DVD would be an amazing introduction to the fitness world. You will have fun during your workout, feel so good about yourself afterwards, and see results. I don't know what I would do without Violet Zaki's workouts!

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My workout regimen is an extensive collection of fitness dvds. If I feel my motivation waning, I'll buy one or two new ones so I wound up with quite a rotation of a library of workout dvds. Because of this, I'm picky about which ones I like, which ones I keep, and I have quite a comparison.

INSTRUCTION:
Excellent.The instructor has a soothing British accent and is very calm yet she pushes you with her WORDS rather than with yelling at you. Her energy is excellent, as is that of those who follow her in the dvd.

CUEING:
Great cueing. I did get tripped up once but I can assure you, for me, that's great cueing. I have two left feet and found her very easy to follow.

CALORIC BURN:
Weight Loss Cardio Sculpt takes to heart the evidence that the most effective workout will get your heart rate up but still allow it to roller coaster down some, then do strength training and alternate this fat burning and muscle building circuit through the workout. I wear a bodybugg to measure my daily caloric burn so I can actually SEE scientifically how many calories a workout I do burns and how many calories I burn per minute doing it...and this was a scorcher!! However, the moves really worked my muscles well too which means, with strength training, you continue to burn calories long after the workout is done in addition to the cardio he has which burns them fast during the workout. But whether you measure your own caloric burn or not, you'll feel your heart rate stay in the prime fat burning zone. It gets it up there!

WHY CIRCUIT TRAINING DOESN'T BURN YOU OUT BUT BURNS THE CALORIES:
Many people still hold to the myth that in order to burn the most fat you have to work out as hard as you can.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Standout--excellent workout & functional DVD! January 19, 2009
Format:DVD
Love it...will enjoy a long shelf life in my streamlined DVD workout collection, making for high returns on the price and my efforts to exercise.

First, I'm a big fan of Violet Zaki, following her innovative workouts on Exercise TV and in her Self DVD's, though this may be her best to date. She's personable while still economical with her commentary and helpful in her instruction...so encouraging but "gets down to business" without the annoying fluff talk other instructors too often overuse. I'm actually inspired to work hard and not let her down, as if I'm in her class, which proves more motivational when I travel and workout in my hotel room (the chaptering is very functional in this regard too, when short on time).

Second, as advertised, it's an efficient, dynamic workout, full of multi-tasking exercises that challenge more than one muscle group at a time, along with balance and coordination, intensifying calorie burn. Yet, I think it's still accessible to all fitness levels given the modifications. I plan on working my way up the intensity curve by increasing poundage on the hand weights (probably substituting straps when I travel), range of movement, and pacing. IMO, good DVD workouts are challenging but structured so that the user can build on them, extending their usefulness, which Violet inherently seems aware of in how she designed this workout.

Violet's website suggests "Cardio Kick," also from Acacia, will soon be out too...can't wait!
