The concept behind this unique DVD from Women's Health is to provide different workout options for different body types. There is a weekly schedule of pre-assembled complete workouts for three different body types, Classic Curvy, Athletic Build, or Long and Lean. Although the routines for each type utilize the same workout segments, they are combined differently according to type (e.g., the Curvy rotation includes three days of cardio, whereas the Athletic rotation contains more strength work). The individual workout segments are as follows:

Warm-Up, 4 minutes
Cardio, 22 minutes
Upper Body, 12 minutes
Lower Body, 13 minutes
Abs & Core, 9 minutes
Cool-Down, 6 minutes

There are also three "Amp It Up" segments that can be used as optional add-ons:

Kick-It, 5 minutes (kickboxing drills)
Super Slow, 5 minutes (slow weight lifting)
Power Flow, 7 minutes (flowing yoga and core work)

In addition to using the three pre-programmed workouts (which allow you simply to select the day and go), you can also create you own, fully customized routines by mixing and match any of the above individual segments. The cardio in particular is very challenging: although it is short, it is high-intensity, high-impact. It is presented in four rounds, which each round consisting of three 30-second intense intervals and then a single 30-second recovery interval. Brief jogs are used to facilitate the quick transitions between intervals, and each round is performed twice total. Instructor Jessica Smith works out with two background exercisers who show easier and more difficult modifications for most of the moves.

I would definitely recommend this video to anyone looking to purchase a single fitness DVD with a wide variety of options.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Work Out!! January 3, 2007
I found this to be a GREAT workout video. I usually do Turbo Jam, so I love high intensity workouts. This defiantly makes me sweat and get fatigued. I wasn't sure about it because the cover didn't say much about it. Boy, am I glad I got it. I just thought I'd write a review about it so others had more info about it. Overall, I am very impressed!

You can customize your own work out using the following:

Warm Up 4 Mins

Cardio 22 Mis

Upper Body 12 Mins

Lower Body 13 Mins

Abs and Core 9 Mins

Cool Down 6 Mins

Amp It up

Kick It 5 Mins (high intensity Kick boxing based drill)

Super Slow 5 Mins (Slower tempo weight routine using heavier dumbbells)

Power Flow 7 Mins (A routine based on Yoga, Pilates and other stretches)

There are three Pre-programmed workouts, varied on your "body type"

The Classic Curvy consists of

Day 1 Cardio

Day 2 Upper Body

Day 3 Cardio

Day 4 Lower Body

Day 5 Cardio

Day 6 Rest

Day 7 Abs and Core

Day 7 Alternate Abs and Core with Amp it up - Kick it Up

The Lean Build

Day 1 Upper Body

Day 2 Lower Body

Day 3 Cardio

Day 4 Abs and Core

Day 4 Alternate Abs and Core with Amp it up - Super Slow

Day 5 Upper Body

Day 6 Lower body

Day 7 Rest

The Athletic Build

Day 1 Cardio

Day 2 Upper Body

Day 3 Lower Body

Day 4 Rest

Day 5 Cardio

Day 6 Rest

Day 7 Abs and Core

Day 7 Alternate Abs and Core with Amp it up Power Flow

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great one from Women's Health December 9, 2006
Verified Purchase
This is one of those fun, new programmable DVDs where you can mix and match the exercises in the order you want, and even do the same segment more than once. You can customize your workout from the warm-up (4 minutes), upper body (12 minutes), lower body (13 minutes), abs & core (9 minutes), cardio (22 minutes) and cool-down (6 minutes) Several of the lower body and abs & core moves come from Pilates (i.e., leg circles, double leg stretch.) The cardio was much more intense than the other Women's Health DVD - the Wedding Workout. The pre-programs include "Curvy Bodies" which suggests 3 days of cardio, 1 of upper body, 1 of lower body, and 1 of abs & core; "Lean Bodies" which suggests 1 day of cardio, 2 days of upper body, 2 days of lower body, and 1 day of abs & core, and "Athletic Bodies" which suggests 1 day of upper body, 1 day of lower body, 2 days of cardio, and 1 day of abs & core. The bonus segments include tips on meals and nutrition. While I didn't enjoy the cardio as much as I did the WW DVD, I just modified some of the higher impact moves; I'll keep this for the strength work for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise! January 13, 2007
Verified Purchase
I ordered this DVD based upon two recommendations, which I was a little skeptical about. It was so pleasantly surprised, this is a really nice DVD! Although an avid home workout person for many years, I have always kind of wondered what the correct "mix" is for my body type - this is it! It has daily pre-programmed workouts for athletic, curvy and lean body types which makes it a no-brainer. But, you can also create your own custom workout as this is one of those matrix-type DVDs. I found the DVD to be well produced, the instructor was pleasant, chatty, but not annoying at all and did a great job cueing and making sure you don't hurt yourself. I like it and recommend it to anyone looking to mix it up a bit and not have to put too much thought into, "what do I do today?". I probably won't follow this to a "t", but I found this to be a surprise and something not easily found (I'm not sure how I found it on Amazon.com). I feel anyone from beginner to advanced will benefit from this, it's straight-forward but still challenging. Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad if you do the custom option
I got this DVD because I'm a fan of Jessica Smith (the instructor) and know she can be deceptively difficult. I ignored the pre-programmed choice and built my own work out. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too challenging
These workouts are not very difficult. Not very long either. "If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you" probably not great for long term use.

5.0 out of 5 stars good video
I like this workout video! You get to pick what part of your body you want to work out, which is nice and the program is slower but pushes you. I love the stretching section.

Body type?
I haven't actually done this workout, but I would recommend doing cardio and upper body toning. Depending on what moves they use the "Amp It Up" slow toning and yoga sections could be good too.
