I like the Prevention workouts and Chris Freytag. She's a great instructor who is motivating and fun. She's like Denise Austin only not annoying. She is encouraging and makes this fun to do.

To make it effective and to use variety, there are two workouts here. Both are fat burning - good old fashioned cardio and then interval cardio. If you do them together then you'll get about 50 minutes worth of exercise; or you can do them separately (so that's good to know for busy days or when you can't be bothered). While it's intense, it's easy to follow along to (she's a great cuer). I've done it a couple of times already and find it enjoyable while still getting my heart rate up and before you know it, it's done and trust me - you'll sweat a lot. I'd say it's more for intermediate levels, but even I found it good and it's nice to have variation in your routines, so even if you are advanced, you'll benefit from it too - and if you are a beginner, you'll give yourself something to work toward. I really like this.

This dvd is fantastic. You will not be bored. You can choose between two 20-minute workouts or do both together with only one warm-up and one cool-down with no fast-forwarding required. I am very fit person, but I found this video challenging and fun. Not only will you become more toned, you will lose weight with this video provided that you are working with intensity.

I read the reviews at this site before I buy and there weren't many about this one when I bought it. But, I know Chris Freytag (she cues well and is just the "right" amount of perky), and have nearly all of her videos. It was a good purchase. It takes a couple of times through to get all the moves right, but they're repeated often enough within the workouts, so it's not a problem. At some point, I'll perhaps need to do both of them to be super-challenged, but one is plenty to keep your heart pumping and your body sweating. Warning! There are A LOT of lunges in these workouts, and for folks with tender knees, this could be a problem. I'll be 60 in a few months, but I've NEVER been in better shape--tight and toned--and almost back to Wedding Day weight 35 years later! Thanks, Prevention!

I think you either like Chris Fretag's teaching style or you do not. Personally, I really like her. She isn't cheesy. She isn't boring. She is right in the middle for me.
I really liked this workout's high energy routines. The main part of the workout is 20 minutes. That is VERY easy to squeeze into a day. Like some of the reviewers mentioned, there are numerous twists and turns. There is no floor workouts in the DVD.
I have numerous Freytag workouts. I did find this ones timing to be not as clear as her other workouts. (thus the four starts) That being said, it is still a very complete short burst workout.
I will purchase more of her workouts in the future.

I would have loved to give this 5 stars. There are two workouts, a warm-up, cool-down, a strength training appendix, and even a section where they break down the moves. The only thing they could have added that, in my opinion, would have made this the one of the best out there is a thorough stretch segment. Considering how much squatting and lunging you do (which really works the quadriceps) I would have appreciated some kind of quad stretch in the warm-up, if not an entire segment devoted to stretches. So a word of warning - before you start, stretch those calves and thighs!

This is a straight-up cardio workout that offers the choice of either two 30-minute workouts, or one 50-minute workout by combining the two 20 minute cardio segments, in addition to the 5-minute warm-up and the 5-minute cool down.

The first cardio segment, Fat-Blasting, is a heart-pumping calorie-burning aerobic workout. The second cardio segment, Metabolism Boosting, is spiced-up with high-energy athletic drills. You will get your heart rate up with both of these workouts. As with all Prevention workouts, there is a participant offering a modified version of the routines and Chris Freytag's cuing is flawless.

One of the things I appreciate about the Prevention workouts are the Smart Ways To Live Well bonus sections. In Break It Down, Chris helps you to understand the moves that might give a bit more trouble. In Maximize Your Workout, Chris offers advice on how get the most out of your workouts. Finally, in 4 Moves To Firm Up Fast, Chris demonstrates four exercises designed to round out your workout: the the Curl & Press Squat; the Row & Lunge; the Tricep Bridge; the Bicycle Press.

Highly recommended.

I always enjoy the workouts that Prevention puts together - there's so much variety that you will certainly not get bored. Your heartrate will be up, but I was never gasping for breath (which is good!) Chris definitely has a cheerful personality that isn't overwhelming. She's encoraging, motivating, and makes you hit all the areas of your body. If your looking something that really intense, this video isn't it, but I still feel it's a decent workout. And it's broken up into seperate segments, so if you are crunched for time you can just do what your in the mood for.
