2 years on - still love it
, April 30, 2011
I got this dvd about 2 years ago and I loved it from the start. I still use it now and get great results (as I still can't do all the repetitions!). I haven't used it every day for 2 years - just when I want to get into shape. Some of the definition stays when I'm not doing the dvd regularly, but the really great results come from doing it most days a week.
Even without cardio, the mat workout really helps tighten things up a lot, and I love the muscles she targets. It's true - the bigger muscles get pulled back in, along with the skin. The skin becomes smoother and tighter. My muffins top and saddle bags all got smoothed out without me even losing any weight. Now I know about the perils of growing big triceps and making "bingo wings" I'm too scared to do anything else.
MY lifting strength has not really increased that much, but my core strength is incredible - similar to that of doing yoga or pilates, but the definition is much better.
My heart rate goes up into the fat burning zone for a lot of the mat workout anyway, so I normally do the hour mat workout first then cardio if I have time later. I used to do just the first half of the dvd which is 30 mins, but obviously I am getting much better results now.
Now she has released new dvd I look forward to doing a new routine, but this dvd has lasted me a long time.
I really do believe she is a genius and I'd recommend this dvd to anyone.
