As you may surmise from my review title, I am an Erin O'Brien fan. :-D I think her workouts are safe, sound, and effective for all but truly advanced exercisers, and for me they are also great fun! Be advised that they are in no way "hard core" (Jillian she's not!) but they're generally appropriate - or modifiable - for most ages, levels and abilities.

Although this particular DVD falls under Kristi's name it's very much an Erin workout, although this time it's a cardio/sculpt routine. As with Erin's other workouts this DVD is not glitzy, glamorous or over-produced. A simple home-like setting, basic music background to keep the beat (but for some reason doesn't bore me through repeat viewings as most videos do) and a minimum of equipment required. Don't forget to gently increase your weight load over time. Erin cautions not to exceed 8-pound dumbbells with all her videos, but I use different weights for different exercises and sometimes use 10. ;)

Others have pointed out that legs are not heavily addressed in this video, but if you alternate this with Erin's other circuit programs Strong Body, Ageless Body with Erin O'Brien and Strong Body Fit Body you will resolve that issue. Using all three weekly gives one a nicely balanced variety of exercises and strength-training modalities. Just add some cardio with yoga or stretching on the alternating days and see what happens!

This new video from Kristi Yamaguchi and her trainer Erin O'Brien is a pretty intense cardio workout. I kept waiting for the easier part, but there wasn't any! It's separated into several segments so you can pick and choose or you can do the entire 53 minutes. There's a brief (but adequate) warm-up section, three cardio sections, a wrap-up, a core, and a cool-down section.

The strengths of this workout are: excellent cardio that will really get your heart rate up and have you sweating. I also liked how Kristi showed the more difficult moves and Erin would show the low-impact or more intermediate moves. Interspersed with the cardio was quite a bit of weight training for arms, which was excellent. I also liked the general feel of the video--it was easy to follow, Erin and Kristi have nice personalities so it would not be annoying to watch repeatedly, and the music is very background. I felt worn out while doing the workout, but I felt energized afterward.

What I feel are the weaker points are: not much spot toning, particular in the lower half/legs. As well, some of the ab/core moves were so difficult for me (they may not be for someone else) that I wasn't able to do them or at least as many as I was supposed to, so I didn't feel I got as good a workout on my abs. With that in mind, I would do this video a few times a week, alternated with another one that intensely targeted specific muscle groups.

Overall, it's very good--I would rate it intermediate to difficult--and it certainly lives up to its "power workout" title!

I am an over 50 woman who is committed to getting back into shape by maintaining a health weight. I was hooked on the Jane Fonda floor workouts and this comes pretty close. I like that two intensity levels are demonstrated througout the tape. I also like that this is split in to three different time cycles so if I need to divide my workouts throughout the day I can. I do recommend this for the person reentering the workout world, but probably not for the die hard trained athletes.

This is a good workout and you can't help but enjoy exercising with someone of such grace, poise, and skill as Kristi. It is nice to have Erin O'Brien acting as the teacher with Kristi as the student. Excellent cardio and easy to do in a small space.

I want to start by saying the workout itself is pretty great. Erin O'Brien has become one of my favorite fitness instructors over the past couple of months. The only problem is that I have issues with my wrists which make part of this DVD too difficult to do.

Workout 1 is fine. Workout 2 requires some plank work that can't be modified by going to your forearms since it's a plank to a downward dog. Workout 3 also has some plank work but this can be modified with a forearm plank. Usually when a workout is too hard on my wrists, I give it a lower review, but I think this DVD is so good that I couldn't bring myself to dock it more than one star.

As others have mentioned, the dynamic between Kristi and Erin seems a little strained and fake, but if you concentrate on the workout you will be sweating. Each of the 3 10-min workouts starts with about 5 minutes of cardio followed by 5 minutes of sculpting/strength training. Then there is a 4 minute power workout where you combine all the cardio moves and finally some core stuff. My review is strictly on the 3 10-minute workouts and the power workout - I haven't done the core part of this DVD yet. What I did was tough enough.

I think this is worth the investment (although I got mine with a Warehouse Prime deal so it was under $10). I do, however, wish there was a feature where you could choose your workout and create your own combinations. It's unfortunate that this isn't an option, but it doesn't make or break my desire to do this DVD again.

Watch the video on Amazon (it's from the first 10-min workout) and decide for yourself, but definitely be wary if you have any type of carpal tunnel or difficulty weight-bearing on your hands/wrists.
