I use it on occasion, but that gathers lots of dust. It's nice to have as something special, but certainly not something We would have purchased for me.
It's pretty good, at almost all. It can help you tone. But I do think they are able to do better- it is nothing which my exercise videos tend not to include.

The work contains some very important perspectives with regard
to body building. For instance, the author distinguishes from among
the three main body types. i.e.
Ectomorphs have long torsos, slim hips and shoulders.
The ectomorph loses weight easily and is inclined to
low levels of body fat. The goal is to increase stamina and muscle mass.
Endomorphs have bigger bones, larger thighs and hips.
The ideal training is to increase cardio training to reduce fat and
burn calories. Increasing the upper body exercises will aid in body
symmetry. Weight loss is most difficult and this is achieved with
increased cardio exercises aimed at burning calories.
Many people don't realize this aspect.
Activities which maximize calorie burning per hour are aerobic
dancing (500+), basketball (450) , football (500) ,
racquetball (588) and circuit training (756).
Mesomorphs have the ideal body shape which is robust and athletic.
Utilizing light to moderate weight training enhances muscle tone.
This body type gains muscle mass easily. They have broad
shoulders and a narrow waist. In addition, weight loss is no problem.
A series of very good exercises are presented for persons with a
sedentary lifestyle. Samples of these are the chest stretch,
arm/shoulder stretch, calves stretch, walking, leg squats and
The book provides good tips on what to look for when purchasing
treadmills, exercise bikes, the elliptical trainer, stepping machines
and small weights. Personally, I find small weights are best for
developing and maintaining muscle tone.
Lastly, the author presents some delicious meal tips for preparing
beef with cabbage, coriander beef stew, turkey burgers, garlic and
mushroom pasta and many others. Overall, the acquisition
would be perfect for the health enthusiast in your household.
The program described in this book would be extremely helpful
for lifetime weight maintenance and health.
