The second segment is a ten-minute ab workout. On many aerobics videos, additional ab routines are very short (maybe 3 or 4 sets at 8 reps each). This ab workout is ten minutes non-stop with very tiny pulses. One of the best ab routines I've found.
The final segment is by far the toughest. It is 32 minutes of leg toning. Squats, lunges, leg raises, you name it. The first part of this segment is the most challenging. You will feel the burn big time! Once you get to the leg raises, it gets much easier but still challenging. The last part isolates the inner thighs. Instructor Keli Roberts does an excellent job explaining proper body alignment for each of the moves. Finally, there is a cool-down stretch (you'll need it). Cher is there through the whole video and adds her own comments during some of the segments. New Attitude gives you an all-around, full body workout!
Keli Roberts, the instructor, is exceptionally informative and inspiring, and the moves are challenging, yet uncomplicated enough for beginners, including clutzy beginners, to learn in a short time. And the routines are fun and imaginative enough to inspire the most advanced users. Cher and friends have some lively kibbitzing going, and do a good job in keeping the video unintimidating.
When compared with other tapes, this workout is excellent in its thoroughness and emphasis on breathing and safety. A BIG plus is that it uses "real" pop music, and Cher's tunes aren't even half of the numbers included; songs like Dusty Springfield's "Son of a Preacherman" add to the fun. When compared to the canned, cheezy synthetic music on other exercise videos, this tape rocks.
I couldn't recommend any other tape more highly.
I do know that I have never found a more concise, effective ab workout on a tape before. I've never really used the other programs on the tape as I do other aerobic activities. I was basically looking for guidance in toning my abdominals.
This tape is perfect for that. The ab workout is 10 minutes, but will leave you feeling like you accomplished something and you really do. It's the one tape that I keep putting in the VCR. I only wish there was a DVD version so that I didn't have to keep rewinding or fast forwarding to the desired section.
I was never a big fan of Cher, but she and everyone else on the tape have such great attitudes and they genuinely seem to be comfortable and having fun, unlike other workout videos where the participants have those fake, glued-on smiles. The enthusiasm here is genuine, and it shows. I always felt like I was really in the class with them, and the camaraderie is infectious. It's hard to feel depressed after doing this tape. The people on it have such great attitudes!
Lately I've had a sentimental hankering to do this workout again. You can laugh if you want, but I actually bought a little tv with built in VHS at a garage sale JUST so I could do this workout because it isn't offered on DVD. (They absolutely must put this out on DVD!!!) As soon as I got my new tape on Amazon and popped it in to my vintage player, I was absolutely thrilled to find that this workout is as fun as I had remembered.
And WOW is it ever a good workout. I'm a fitness enthusiast, but if you do the high-intensity level for this workout, you will SWEAT and be challenged. However, they offer lower-intensity moves for people who don't want to go all out, so if you aren't in perfect shape, you would still be able to do this workout and work up to the higher intensity level. Also, I appreciate that the moves are challenging, but they aren't all that complex.Read more ›
