An extremely effective posture improvement program that will have you standing straighter immediately. All of the exercises are designed to correct 'vulture head', slouching, rounded shoulders and pot bellies. Formatted in 10 minute segments so you can address your particular posture problems first.
THE BEST POSTURE SOLUTION! This woman knows everything about posture. After just two weeks of incorporating a few of the exercises into my daily routine my friends couldn't believe the difference. People kept asking me if I got taller or telling me that I looked ten times prettier. It's so easy any one can do these exercises and they REALLY work. I thought I would have bad posture my whole life, but it was gone after 2 weeks! I highly recommend this DVD to anyone who wants to improve their posture. --C. Noonan
Wonderful DVD that really helps. I am a 35 year old female who has struggled with poor posture her entire life. I had recently purchased a book on posture alignment exercises to help with my problems, but I found that it was hard to make time to do the exercises on my own. So I decided to purchase this DVD about three weeks ago, and it has already made a tremendous difference in my posture. I have only been doing the DVD about three times a week for the past three weeks, but my shoulders are already less hunched, and one of my shoulder rotator cuffs is no longer causing me the pain that it usually causes . Ms. Novak also includes Anywhere/Anytime exercises that you can do while at work, in the car, etc. These small exercises have been great in helping me ease tension out of my neck and shoulder, in particular. An added benefit is that the DVD also comes with a latex-free resistance band that is used with the exercises. --Leanne, Amazon.com
Two years of nagging paid off. I have been bugging my 12 year old daughter for 2 years. We've taken her to physical therapists and nagged her countless times. She sat in front of the TV and within a few minutes was doing everything we'd been telling her for the past two years, but since it was on the DVD from an obvious expert she actually listened. Wife is a nurse and I'm a psychologist and we were stumped. Daughter is now sitting in front of the TV doing the exercises and we're already seeing a log of improvement. The rate of learning, tone of the presenter, and ease of understanding are all top notch and in fact my wife went out and bought a stretch band to the training with my daughter. THANK YOU. This will be much cheaper than additinal physical therapy visits at 30 minutes once or twice per week. Plus we can use it again and again. --Kevin, Phychologist

When I looked at Novak's website, it seemed as if Disk 1 in this two-disk pack was different from the original DVD (which is why I ordered this two-disk set), but they are the same. *So please note that if you already have the original DVD, then you do not need this two-pack set, but should instead buy the exercise-only DVD (disk 2) that is sold separately.*
That being said, this program WORKS! I especially love how Disk 1 thoroughly explains the exercises (it runs just under 90 minutes), and Disk 2 contains just the exercises themselves (and runs about 45 minutes long). Disk 2 is also broken down into segments so you can just do those segments you need. There is a five-minute warm-up, twenty minutes of upper body exercises (to help with rounded shoulders, slouching, etc.), ten minutes of abs, ten minutes of lower back, and five minutes of all-over total body stretches.
Doing these exercises will not just mask your bad posture, but will strengthen your back muscles so that you will be able to hold yourself upright and improve your posture. I know that this is a problem for me since I spend a lot of time sitting/rounding forward, and many of the workout DVD's I do tend to overemphasize working the chest (which exacerbates the problem of tight chest muscles) and they do not pay enough attention to strengthening the back. In addition to doing Novak's exercises a few days a week, I am also going to work on doing assisted chin-ups and pull-ups twice a week to further strengthen my back muscles.
The non-latex band that comes with this DVD is also a great bonus since you need a nice, tight band to do the exercises. I've also noticed that the band that comes with this newer set is about 4 inches longer than the band that came with the original DVD, which is great because that band was too short, which made it hard to do some of the exercises.
Overall, this is a great program that works, as long as you set aside the time to do the exercises a few days a week. Novak's pleasant personality and demeanor also make it enjoyable to work along with her doing these exercises.
Although the DVD runs about 90 minutes, I've found that after viewing it all the way through one time, I can now fast-forward through Ms. Novak's explanations so I can go right to each set of exercises. By doing so, I can get through the entire program in about 50 minutes. The exercises cover all the major muscle groups that cause poor posture, so that by strenghtening your muscles, your body naturally stops slouching on its own, without your having to think about it.
The exercises are also set up so that you can eventually do them on your own while watching TV or at a desk, but for now I like being able to follow along with the DVD.
Ms. Novak also includes "anywhere, anytime" exercises that you can do while at work, in the car, etc. These small exercises have been great in helping me ease tension out of my neck and shoulders, in particular.
An added benefit is that the DVD also comes with a latex-free resistance band that is used with the exercises. It really helps create more tension so that you can feel the exercises even more.
A wonderful DVD! I highly recommend it!
