Hollywood trainer Erin OBrien invites you into her home for a 45-minute routine that works your arms, legs, and core. She combines upper and lower body exercises to keep things moving and get your heart-rate revved. Use hand weights if you have them, soup cans if you dont. If you cant keep up at first, thats great! You have something to work towardand a healthier, trimmer body to look forward to.

Erin is a great instructor. She explains everything so well by telling you why you are doing what you're doing. She cues well and so you always know what's coming up. You can do the basic move that's demonstrated, or the tougher variations which is shown in a separate square in the corner of the screen. That's a great feature in itself so you can progress easily and move up when you're ready. All you need is some weights and you're ready to go. Even though she's not totally well known, I highly recommend this workout to everyone because almost anyone can follow it, and it will compliment any of your cardio workouts you might already own.
Now I'm doing this workout at least twice a week to supplement my cardio routine. It's a motivating, fast-paced series of exercises that switch between upper and lower body sets. The transitions are easy to follow but quick so your heart rate stays elevated and you're done before you know it. The program ends with a nice floor work section that incorporates inner/outer thigh work and abs/pilates exercises. Erin is very easy to follow and motivational. The program also includes a helpful corner graphic that shows you advanced options for every exercise.
This is one I'll go to again and again.
Erin O'Brien is amazing. With this particular workout, she set up a tripod in her living room and created a comprehensive strength training routine just for you. Although you can't "customize" this DVD like some other workouts (the 10 Minute series comes to mind), it is so much more personal than the cookie-cutter studio routines; it honestly feels like you have a one-on-one session with your favorite trainer. Erin is a strong, down-to-earth, no-nonsense woman who cares about health and wants YOU to be strong too. She makes you feel good about yourself and good about working out. Her encouragement is nurturing ("Yes you can!" and "You're all right, I promise!"), and her demeanor is calm and focused.
For this 43-minute workout, you need a set of dumbbells (or soup cans) and a yoga mat (or towel). Erin keeps the routine fast-paced, so even though there's not a lot of cardio per se, your heart rate stays up and pumping the whole time, and you still burn tons of calories. She uses 6-pound dumbbells throughout the routine, but I started with 3-pounders and have worked my way up to 5-pounders, which I think I'll stick with for a while.Read more ›
