July 2008 DVD of the month--A routine that never gets boring it eliminates the predictability inherent with some routines. --Shape Magazine
Worth purchasing? Absolutely. Both of these DVDs are effective and make working out quick and efficient. I don t like hour-long workouts because I have no attention span so these 6 minute bursts are perfect for me. I can do as many as I like! --Relish Magazine

Well, I'm lucky because I found the perfect workout for me! Tracey's workouts couldn't be better.
First I was very sceptical because of the length. How can I get a good workout in 6 minutes? It is possible! You will sweat, your muscels will burn! Big promise.
I mix an match both DVDs and train 24 minutes a day, 6 days a week. The effects on my body are dramatic. I am so happy, that I found a way to get fit, although I am a busy mother of a three years old daughter. My abs look better than before my pregnancy and I feel fantasic!
I also love Tracey's book. It's like your best friend is talking to you and tells you every secret about nutrition and training you always wanted to know. Tracey is very likeable, friendly, and honest. ... and I assume she is a perfectionist as well :-) Thank you Tracey!
The choreography/routines are basic, but the pace is quick. A beginner can follow it easily, but an intermediate may be more comfortable for the duration. The exercises she's chosen are very time-efficient, never boring, and can be done in a limited amount of space. Tracey's accent is very subtle and not at all distracting. (I had that problem with Lisa Kay's Southern drawl, Denise Austin's Texas twang, and Keli Roberts' Aussie accent.) Her cuing is excellent,and her encouragement is motivating rather than perky.
If you have the book, you'll recognize the segment titles. This DVD contains:
Quick Cardio Total Body Blast A
Quick Cardio Total Body Blast B
Quick Cardio Total Body Blast C
Quick Mind-Body Blast A
Quick Mind-Body Blast B
Quick Mind-Body Blast C
Quick Abs Blast
All the segments are 6 minutes, except for the warm-up and cool-down which are 15 each. There are two recommended pre-programmed week-long routines, or you can choose segments individually.
You'll need a pair of 3-5 pound weights and - since the cardio is mixed impact - I'd also recommend a good sports bra for the ladies.
The dvd is most geared toward those who don't have a lot of time to commit to long workouts and especially women. This dvd features the same cast as her Fat Burning dvd... they are all women (90% of them mothers) who supposedly lost weight using Tracey's method. They are all in average shape. I like that each of the 6 minute sections has a countdown shown on the screen to see how far you've progressed and how much you have left. I find it motivating.
The dvd segments are as follows: Warm-up, 3 "Total Body Blast" segments (cardio & weights), 3 "Mind-Body Blast" segments (yoga, pilates, core), Ab Blast, and Cool down/stretches. Each section is 6 minutes long except the warm up and cool down which are a little shorter but still 4/5 minutes each. You can do one at a time, string them all together for almost an hour long workout, or do one of the many pre-programmed routines which come from 2 suggested week-long practices. I like doing the whole thing but wish there was a convenient way to mix up the order of the sections. Required equipment includes a set of weights (I used 5 lbs).
The warm-up is exactly the same as on her Fat Burner dvd and essentially variations on walking. It's very basic and didn't do much to really warm me up. In the future I will most likely skip this altogether. It went on for 5 minutes.
The Total Body Blast segments are easy to pick up but fast paced.Read more ›
