Format: VHS Tape
Compared to my Denise Austin and Kathy Smith videos, this tape looks like something that should be played on MTV. I find that I get so caught up in the sophisticated camerawork, unusual music, and funky backgrounds that it's sometimes hard to pay attention to what I'm doing. I really love the look and sound of this video and that's one of the main reasons I enjoy doing it. The cardio section is really intense, but seems too short. Her sequence of lunges, squats and other moves for the lower body is a killer routine. I haven't felt so sore in a long time, and I'm a runner! Definitely not for the faint-hearted or anyone with bad knees. She spends a lot more time on chest exercises than any other video I've used. I wish the abs section had fewer full-body situps; they're not great for the lower back and I think there are more effective moves that put less stress on that area. I found that the routine for arms didn't do much for me until I started using eight-pound weights for some of the exercises; however, I have to switch back and forth between eight-pound and five-pound weights since I am not strong enough to use the heavier weights with some of the exercises. Overall, this is a video I always enjoy using, primarily because it's so entertaining to watch and I love the music. (However, I'm always relieved when the lower body segment is over!) Although I don't feel I'm getting enough of a cardio workout, all the muscles in my body feel pleasantly tired and challenged afterwards.

I really haven't been able to find a workout tape like this one! I mean because it has a little for every part of the body.
This tape is about 64 minutes long, which after working out so long you get relieved it is over, because it really is the "next challenge"!!
The tape consists of:
a warm up, about 2 mins of jumping (like rope jumping type jumps), 20mins of legs (lunges or all sorts, and some kicks) which has a lil water break every 4mins or so, then its abs 1, which has some crunches, then has some chest exercises, (which I've not been able to find any like these anywhere else), then its abs 2, then moves on to arms/shoulders/upper back for 10mins (and those hurt!), then moves on to abs 3, and continues to lower back, and cool down, et voila, you are done!!
Cindy is accompanied by a personal trainer, Rudu (i believe is his name) and hes always in the background always guiding Cindy and reminding her of proper form at all times and helping her count the sets.
I like this video because it has some aerobics, weight training, abs. It is a well-rounded tape, even though after a while the second half of the tape (from abs1 to lower back) it gets to be not so challenging, but you can always change the sets to suit your fitness level.
The background seems to be an empty loft, and the desert. The music is very soothing, (it has a Blondie song).
I'd recommend this tape, it is nicely done.

I was pleasantly surprised by this workout. It differs from most in that you're not doing choreographed moves in time to upbeat music - Cindy typically does 10 reps of a move, and then goes on to something else. There's little opportunity to get bored. Her pace can be a bit fast, but I don't try to keep up - I concentrate on form, not quantity, and as a result I focus more on the muscles I'm working. The music is basically a pleasant background. Some of it seemed odd at first but it grows on you. Cindy is not an articulate or motivating instructor (the opposite of Denise Austin or Susan Powter!), but her strong, fit body and proper form speak for themselves. I would not recommend this tape to anyone who's starting an exercise program, is significantly overweight, or has knee, hip, or back problems - many of the cardio moves are high impact, and the cardio segment is too short and intense for those whose primary goal is to burn fat. But this tape includes many exercises for both upper and lower body that I haven't seen anywhere else, especially for the chest muscles (perhaps not surprising for a model!). I don't do this tape often but I always enjoy it.

I'm not a big video tape excerciser, but I have tried a bunch. This is, by far, my absolute favorite for the following reasons. 1)Cindy is a real person working out with you. She gets a bit winded in parts, she tells you to "take advantage of these breaks, guys" and she basically is an empathetic friendly presence. She does a good job at reminding you about form as well. 2) It's really hard! I love the fact that this video is very challenging. The great thing is that I've done it for years now and I can add reps when I'm in the mood while she is explaining the next move. Every time I do this video (I only do it once maybe twice a week when I don't feel like going to the gym and sometimes I don't do it for a few months) I am sore the next day. 3) You can tailor this video to fit your needs. Don't like high impact? March instead. Don't want to do a full sit-up? Do crunches. Worried about knee strain on the lunges? Hold onto a chair and just do squats. Or, add a few more reps. I don't find that it's too fast at all. There is also a glossary at the end of the tape that shows proper form. I will say that I don't ever do the Trunk Circles because all they do is make me dizzy and there doesn't seem to be any benefit by doing them. I fast forward through this one. 3) It's got great music. Subtle, not overpowering and not that annoying dance music with the same beat over and over and over... This video definitely keeps my interest and I recommend it to anyone who brings up workout videos. I have also tried Cindy's first video and found it to be quite laughable and although it had good intentions, it falls short on the workout part. Who works out in thier bathing suit anyway??? In short, this is a great video for someone who wants a challenging workout but doesn't want to be bombarded by annoying music and overly happy "feel-the-burn" aerobics instructor type people.
