3.0 out of 5 stars Skinny on Quality, December 30, 2008
This review is from: Skinny Bitch Fitness: Boot Camp (DVD)
I know very little about the two authors of the Skinny Bitch series other than the fact that their two very lucky women. Their tawdry and campy SB books and videos have remained on best sellers lists despite their "slim" credentials as health and fitness experts.

The video narrative is poor-for some reason I don't get motivated being called a bitch or being told to put down my twinkies. There are even offensive comments directed at smokers. But the actual choreography is painful to watch as the girls get lost themselves and seem at times disinterested--SB Boot Camp is merely bits and pieces of other successful exercise dvd's lumped together in a hodgepodge.

I own more than a hundred fitness dvd's and this is one of the most poorly executed in terms of direction and instruction. I bought this dvd hoping for a clever and challenging work-out directed at women with flair and fun in mind but in turn got duped by the trendy title and marketing machine of the SB series.

The SB women should never let go of the agents and publicists---ever.

Let me start by saying I do not own this and have not tried it. I saw it at the store the other day and decided to try and get a feel for if I would be interested or not. So let me ask you, you sound very disappointed in this dvd. Even saying that it is one of the worst exercise dvds you own. So why give it three stars??? It just seems like you did not find any redeeming value in it to give it more then a one or two star rating...
