I know this DVD is aimed at post-natal women, but the way it targets common trouble areas like the abs, hips and outer-thighs makes it a wonderful workout for any woman. I did have a baby 16 months ago, and have had a terrible time getting back in shape and losing the baby weight. I keep buying new workout videos, looking for that magically inspirational workout that is going to help me get my body back, with no luck, until now. I am completely hooked on Tracy Anderson! Her DVDs are beautifully produced, the setting is elegant, the music on this DVD is classical and complements the tone of the workout very well. Tracy's demeanor is encouraging and kind, she explains the mechanisms of each move quite well, but she does not talk too much.

The workout itself is about 45 minutes long, and is composed of a brief warm-up, a lot of ab work, some side lying ab work, some leg and glute lifts and squeezes, and then two series of arm exercises, one without weights and one with light weights, and then it finishes with a cool down and stretch. The workout is definitely challenging, even for a more experienced student, but not overwhelmingly hard.

The greatest thing about both this post-natal workout and Tracy's Mat Workout is that they are fun - the time flies by - and they leave you feeling strong, a bit sore, but totally refreshed. I am actually disappointed if I can't find the time to workout - definitely no "dread-factor" here! Highly recommended - Thank You Tracy!

I just got this video after seeing Tracy on Oprah. I had my 2nd baby 5 months ago and am trying to get back to my pre-1st baby weight.

Pluses:
- Great encouraging tone and instruction
- New ab, leg and arm exercised that I was not familiar with
- Seems like it is going to be effective (since I could feel my muscles while doing it)
- Classical music in the background rather than obnoxious techno or pop

What you need to know before purchasing:
- You need 3 lb weights. (I did it without them, but Tracy uses them on and off in the video)
- No cardio
- The actual workout (including warm-up and cool-down) is around 50 minutes.

Yes, her workouts can be "boring" and repetitive - and I already knew she just doesn't count reps, but it does get the job done. If you already know her workouts, this will be an easy transition for you. In less than 2 weeks I am beginning to see my abs again. Only thing that has worked for me.

This workout is 100% effective. It is difficult and you have to keep yourself motivated and stick with it. I've lost so much of my baby weight in just 3 weeks!

This is a horrible DVD to use postpartum IF you have diastasis recti which is separation of your abdominal muscles. 2 out of 3 women have this after delivering a baby ESPECIALLY if you've had more than one. For such a common condition to not have this mentioned int he DVD at all is very misleading. Plus, pretty much the entire abdominal section of this video is working your recti muscles without isolation of the tranverse ab muscles. The whole section has so many crunches and other types of ab work which will in fact make the separation WORSE and make you look more and more pregnant. She talks about doing research while pregnant to make this video but I can't see how much she actually did because its so easy to find better advice, videos and exercises that are safe after pregnancy which include how to tell if you have a diastasis. I can't believe how misleading this DVD is and that fact that it is marketed to a group of women where this will worsen the problem in most people is a downright travesty. For people looking for better advice, Tracey Mallett's Superfit Mama book teaches you which exercises are safe, the MUTU system (albeit this is expensive) by Wendy Powell if you like DVDS and need a system, or the free set of exercises available on You Tube from momsintofitness.com are much better to use than this. Also my favorite DVD which is not expensive is the postnatal rescue dvd by Erin O'Brien is fantastic. The first section, everything is perfect for people with a diastasis and the progression is gradual. My diastasis has closed significantly already and my baby hasn't even had her one month visit yet. I credit this mostly the postnatal rescue dvd and momsintofitness 8 free exercises on you tube in addition to the exercises available in tracey mallet's book.Read more ›

A very difficult workout. I bought this based on the description, saying it was a gentle workout. My physical therapist watched it before I started it and she said that there is no way anyone who has just had a baby or recovering from any sort of pelvic issue should be doing this video. I tried it once just to see. This instructor makes dangerous claims that can cause someone to be hurt.

first off, let me say that you MUST be strong enough to easily do progression 3 in erin o'brien's postnatal rescue before you attempt this dvd. this is in no way an early postpartum workout unless you were engaging in very strenuous exercise while you were pregnant. if you're like most of us and your core is total s*** postpartum, there's no way you can do a lot of these exercises.

on one hand, this dvd is a great workout. it's been two days since i did it for the first time and my abs still feel sore! however, there are a lot of negatives, IMO:
-45 minutes long is absolutely ridiculous for someone with an infant. at least break this up into chapters so when you inevitably need to go tend to your child, you can easily return later. i would prefer three separate arm, leg/butt, and ab workouts. when tracy says you should do this 4-6 days a week i want to laugh in her face. does she not remember what having a newborn/infant is like?
-after doing erin o'brien's postnatal rescue, tracy's lack of cuing is that much more obvious and annoying. a lot of moves you aren't facing the tv, perhaps you're turned to the side or facing down. tracy doesn't actually mention when she's moved on to something else until she's maybe a few movements in, if even that, and she mumbles. by the time you look at the tv, she's long since moved on to something else..annoying.
-lack of modifications. occasionally she'll say "oh, you may not be able to do this yet.." but rarely does she consistently offer modifications, or demonstrate them herself. if this is billed as an early postpartum dvd, which is the impression i got from tracy's monologue at the beginning, you NEED to do that.
-tracy constantly yapping about how she gained sixty pounds OMG.
