Each interval lasts just one minute. The cardio segments feature athletic-style moves at varying intensities, including higher-impact jogs, jacks and jumps.

so I have some comparison. :-)
CALORIE BURN: I wear a bodybugg to measure my daily calorie burn. Because of this, I'm also able to monitor exactly how many calories I burn during a dvd workout, and know exactly how many calories it burns per minute. Because a strength training dvd will also continue to burn more calories after the workout, I can also monitor the increase if there is one. I say this only so you'll know what I rate is based upon scientific measurement rather than perceived exertion. DANG! If you had to only own two dvds to make a difference in your body I'd choose this one and Jillian Michael's Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism to scorch the calories. The calorie burn was EXTREMELY boosted in this dvd.
CIRCUIT TRAINING: Studies have shown you'll actually burn more calories doing a circuit workout...meaning that you combine both cardio and strength training. Cardio will burn more calories during the workout, but strength training, although it burns less during the workout, will continue to burn calories long after the workout is over and will help build muscle--which also increases metabolism and utilizes more calories even while you are at rest. This dvd takes it to the highest level by doing heavy cardio and then allowing your heart rate to recover during strength, and then getting it back up again. Just like a car uses more gas when alternating slow and fast speeds rather than going fast all the time, it's been shown your body uses more calories doing the same thing. And keeping your heart rate elevated during strength provides that higher calorie burning benefit with toning which continues to burn more later. Very well done.Read more ›
She uses interval training with one minute of strength followed by one minute of cardio. This means she had a huge variety of moves so it is impossible to get bored. I did both workouts back-to-back and the time flew by! I consider myself in very good shape, and this workout was humbling. For the first time EVER I did pushups on my knees because my deltoids need the break. With so many different sequences Cindy hits all of the muscles. It's been a long time since I woke up sore, but this DVD did it for me!
The cueing is excellent. She'll show low-impact versions then take it up with higher impact moves. Plus, unlike many exercise DVDs all of the steps are really simple to follow: no complicated dance-type steps.
The one drawback is that I would have liked a longer stretching section at the end. I like to stretch a lot after a workout, and the short segment here just didn't do it for me. Despite that, this is an excellent addition to anyone's collection. The moves are really simple to catch onto so beginners can enjoy it without frustration. Advanced exercisers can use heavier weights and attempt the high impact moves Cindy demonstrates. I prefer it to the Firm because the moves are less complicated and I like the one minute switches over the lengthier intervals in those DVDs. It's like reading a good book with really short chapters: you just don't want to put it down! I like it better than Jillian's because she seems to waste a lot of time talking and I don't feel like I get a good workout. With Cindy I'm constantly moving and keeping my heartrate up. Plus, Cindy is really encouraging and motivational.
