The moves are basic and easy to follow. There's also a modifier for beginners (that ACTUALLY does real modifications!)
Harvey might be an acquired taste for some. I personally find him motivating and his military style barking somewhat comical but if you don't like feeling as if someone is shouting orders at you, you might not like his personality. He is very blunt ("I don't mind and you don't matter."), doesn't sugar coat anything ("Get off your fat wide butt."), and might even seem a bit insulting (he keeps calling Gian, one of the exercisers, "Gyland" throughout the workout, asks him what his name is but keeps calling him by the wrong name--kind of becomes a running joke) but Harvey can be pretty funny and actually says a kind word or two to his background exercisers.
One downside is that some of the camera angles can get pretty crazy but the moves really are soooo easy to follow that it pretty much makes up for it. (But be advised modifiers: there is one exercise that is almost complete before you see what the modified version is--but only once.Read more ›
As for his assistants, they are all very fit, especially Shaela, the track star. She is so fat free that it is amazing. My size 10 curves will probably never whittle down to that but I'll use her as inspiration. There is another young woman who does modifications the whole time which is helpful if you are a true beginner and can't keep up. There are some squats and lunges and a bit of impact with the jogging and jumping jacks but not an excessive amount, for those with knee issues. I can't say I have ever found any exercise DVD's to be fun, and usually grimace when I read that about one, but I have to say this one really is fun!
I was also pleased with the stretching that is done at the end. Taking ballet has shown me how necessary stretching is, and generally, in workout DVD's I find that the instructors spend far too little time on the stretches, and do too few. This one seemed to have just the right amount and I felt the timing was accurate. I may even use the stretching section after I come home from the gym sometimes. It was very useful.
It would be great if Harvey would make another DVD because I would definitely buy it. Thank you Harvey!
Harvey Walden--the drill instructor from Celebrity Fit Club, is a great motivator. And yeah Harvey ----I feel the fat melting off this gorgeous body!
I hope Harvey comes out with another DVD workout soon--I would buy it for sure!

This is a pretty fun and tough workout. I sweat, I work hard and have a blast. Harvey cracks me up and I need that kind of levity in a workout to keep me interested.Published on July 20, 2013 by S. Wake
