The features of this DVD are very simple to navigate. You are given a choice of doing a full workout or a 'time crunch' workout. There are 7 workouts in all, one for each day of the week. Each daily workout gives you an upper-body, lower-body and ab workout. There is plenty of cardio and muscle toning, as well as a bit of yoga-type stretches in the cool-downs. You should expect to devote anywhere from 35-45 minutes on each daily workout.

"Time crunch" workouts are more target-specific (upper-body, lower-body or abs) and take approximately 20 minutes each.

There is no 'real' warm-up on these workouts. I started with Mondays' workout, and was disappointed to see that they immediately started by jogging in place and doing lunges and thigh exercises. There were no instructions to have previously warmed up or stretched, but I would recommend it.

These workouts are not for any beginners that I know, but more like 'intermediate.' Expect to sweat, and burn, and to hate Bob. Overall I really enjoyed the workout portion of this DVD.

I was expecting this DVD to have stories about the three women pictured on the back of the cover (one of whom is featured on the front.) However, their stories are only briefly mentioned, with before and after photographs. There is a section with style tips that features Autumn, one of the guests from Extreme Makeover, that was mildly helpful.

I wouldn't recommend this workout for severly overweight people, but for people with 20 or 30 pounds to lose, it's perfect.

I am relatively new to the "exercise video scene", but I got hooked on workouts after discovering Kathy Smith. In order to avoid become bored with my routine, I decided to spice up my collection with several other videos. What appealed to me most about this video was that it advertised several different "daily" workouts as well as assorted extras. I figured with seven new routines to do, there was no way I could get bored.

Well .. they do have seven exercise sessions, but they are just different combinations of the same nine "snipets". There are three workout categories (Abs, Upper Body, and Butt, Hips & Thighs) and for each category there are three choices (cardio, toning, cool down). Thus, the nine snipets.

Here are the main things that concerned/disappointed me:

1. As I mentioned, there is actually very LITTLE variety in this video. The silly comments the girls make to the instructor about "taking it easy on them" are cute ..... the first time.

2. The screen will suddenly shoot to split screen, or even TRIPLE split screen right while you are counting your reps. The main problem here is that they put up the two or three screens OUT OF SYNC. This was very disturbing and distracting. On one mini-screen the girl is counting "seven" and on the other mini-screen the guy is counting "nine". I totally lost track of my reps on numerous occasions. In addition, one will have their leg up, the other has their leg down, etc. Much more distracting than it sounds.

3. Each of the nine "snipets" are quite short .. about 10 minutes. They do not "flow" into each other. After one finishes, you have to wait for a menu screen to come up, and then listen to set-up instructions, etc. again for the next workout.

I just recently purchased Extreme Makeover Fitness. As someone previously said don't let the "for beginners" fool you. I started with the Weekly Workout for Sunday. It was Cario arms,abs and lower body. I have done TONS of workouts and I don't always feel them which really dissappoints me because I feel I work hard and then feel nothing afterwards. I like the reminder that I have actually worked some muscles. I did Sunday's routine and woke up sore. Not so sore I couldn't walk but "feeling it" sore. I could pin point to you the muscles I worked and that made me feel more confidant that I worked out like I should and that I will get results. It was hard.. and man was I sweating but there were no difficult moves. Also I weigh 200lbs and it was not too difficult for me. I did lower the impact when I started getting TOO out of breath. All in all I think it's a great tape with many features that I will stick with time and time again. I love how you can customize your workout, do a shorter target area or do the full one. Can never get bored. Give it a shot!

I was really skeptical when I bought this DVD; with all the makeover hype that is going on, I thought it would be a dud. However, I am very pleased to say that it fits my current workout needs precisely. Each person is at a particular level in their fitness and this was perfect for me: a late 40's, overweight, out-of-shape person wanting to get back into some semblance of health again. There is a different work out for each day of the week broken down into body sections and cardio. The segments are relatively short, 10-12 reps done 2-3 times over. They are often repeated throughout the week, but still give some variety. The moves are carefully explained by the instructor, i.e. "keep your shoulder still throughout this move" etc. You have an option to program what segments you want. The participants are regular people, not beautiful, fit models with plastic smiles. The music is typical work out music. The setting is a beautiful beach. Nothing extra-ordinary, just efficient, basic, time-proven workouts. Beginning home exercisers cant go wrong with this one.
