First off the cardio section was amazing. It was hard, but it was also fun and Amy Dixon is a great instructor. She had me begging for mercy about 4-5 minutes in, but she encouraged me to "keep going, it's only 10 minutes!"
The lower body section clocked in at just under 8 minutes, but you WILL feel it. Amy has you doing a series of lunges, curtsey lunges, and deadlifts with lunges. VERY effective and the pace moves quickly and the moves are compact. Right off, you can feel the muscles you're working.
The upper body section was UNBELIEVABLE. I was dying--in a good way. And the day after I was sore. She does a bunch of great variations on the usual shoulder exercises, bicep curls, triceps and an awesome pushup variation that I love and you won't dread doing, yet is effective as well.
The flexibility workout is great as well, and Amy reminds you that this is not a wasted workout--you're still burning calories, which was encouraging as well.
All in all, this was a great DVD that I probably won't use everyday but I will use when I want a total body workout in less than 40 mins., or on days when I want to concentrate on certain areas of the body. I've never heard of Amy Dixon before but now that I have, I will definitely be buying more of her DVDs. Her cueing is great, she's funny and makes come comical remarks and is not overly peppy or obnoxious.
Great DVD, if you buy it, you WILL be using it again and again!
You get a mix in here - cardio, toning and work for flexibility and balance. You always know what's coming up because Amy cues so well. She's encouraging and motivating. The aerbics isn't too dancy and fancy but it does get your heart rate up and that helps burn fat. Then there is upper toning and lower toning, both of which target lots of muscles in different ways (by changing your body angle, you work more muscles). The stretching at the end is what helps your balance and flexibility and it's relaxing yet fun. All you need are some dumbbells and for a bonus workout, you get a stability ball segment so you should have one of those on hand too.
It's not too hard to do, and it's fun yet effective and I'm so impressed that I'm buying these as birthday and holiday gifts for my friends. I think everyone will find this as enjoying as I do, and if you stick with it, the results will come for sure.
Amy Dixon is a great instructor who cues well and is encouraging without being annoying. Plus, it's a really great workout! I did all 4 10-minute segments together, and it was a really well rounded routine. I'm definitely a bit sore today (especially in the shoulders!). My favorite segment is probably the balance/flexibility cooldown at the end--it's very relaxing with some great yoga/pilates-inspired movements. What a great way to end a workout!
I'd definitely recommend trying this out, even if you weren't a fan of the other Women's Health DVDs.
NOTE 5 MONTHS LATER: After a few weeks, I only had time to workout on Saturday and Sunday mornings.Read more ›

I don't know why the reviews are so good and why is it so expensive. I've bought wedding workout and body type by women health which are more efficient and half the price. Read morePublished 19 days ago by texan
