Celebrity trainer Jackie Warner leads three 20-minute workouts designed to burn fat and tone the body.
Fans of the deliciously soapy Bravo reality series Work Out may need to be reminded just how fine a personal trainer Jackie Warner is. This disc is that reminder, containing a fast-paced and comprehensive fitness routine that ranks among the very best. Warner is personable as she trains--and she doesnt stint on doing the moves herself. She's designed the workout in three chunks, upper body, lower body, and core/abs, which can be done separately or combined for a full hour heavy-duty routine. Because there's little rest between moves, the whole workout seems to fly by, but there's no denying its overall intensity. Warner combines tried-and-true moves (crunches, squats) with some new twists (just try to do that "butterfly" crunch and not feel it deeply the next day). And she's upbeat without being perky--though a viewer could be forgiven for grousing when Warner chirps "I could do these all day!" during Sumo squats. She also gives great attention to form, often working with one other trainer so it feels as though the viewer is getting a one-on-one session too. There are modifications for both beginning and advanced exercisers, so there's no excuse not to jump in. The hour will be over before you know it. -- A.T. Hurley

I love that each exercise is done for 60 seconds, and when Jackie says, "you can do anything for a minute", I agree and will push myself to finish! It is very easy to follow along with because you are not doing any crazy dance moves or flailing around. You're simply doing one exercise at a time, for one minute each. It may seem regimented, but I find having that order to the workout helps me to get through it more easily!
The intensity is perfect. I am in fairly good shape and go to the gym at least 5 days per week, and will still ache for a day or two after doing this DVD.
I love that you can break it up into different body areas- arms, legs, and abs- and either do one by itself or any combination of the three. I also like that you can decide the order of the body areas that you would like to do the routine in.
Strength training really can change your body shape and is the best form of exercise to help you lose weight quickly, so if you are looking for an excellent workout that will help you to do these things, you should buy this now!
This is not an easy workout. I've been doing Jillian Michaels and Amy Dixon for about 6 months now, and I was pleased to find a pretty challenging workout. I kind of like it when there's something I can't do on the first or second (or third or fourth) try because it gives me something to work up to and keeps me from getting bored. Jackie's workout definitely fits that bill.
The individual workouts - upper body, lower body, and core - are about 20 minutes each. The menu is easy to navigate, and if you choose more than one of the workouts there is an easy transition between the segments. Each segment begins with a short warmup that concentrates on the area to be worked. There are 4 trainers in the background, three incredible-looking women and one man, and each one does a portion of the workout under Jackie's instruction. Jackie mentions modifications for the upper body and the lower body workout, but mostly she points out ways to make it harder! I haven't taken her up on that offer yet. The core/ab workout is done by Jackie and all four trainers simultaneously, with one trainer consistently showing modifications to make it easier and one trainer showing the more challenging version.
I almost never like a workout video the first time I try it, so I try to use it for at least a week before I make a judgment. I'm so glad I did. I finally did the whole thing today for the first time, and I know I'll be feeling it for the rest of the day. Jackie is encouraging and easy to listen to without a lot of chit chat, which gets old when you watch the same video multiple times.
The only reasons I didn't give this 5 stars, and these are nitpicky but these are the kinds of things I like to know about a video:
*Stretches at the end of each segment are very short. Sometimes that's kind of nice when you're pressed for time, but I find myself wanting to pause the video if I've selected more than one segment.
*Jackie is encouraging, like I said, but sometimes I think we're moving on to another exercise when she says, "Good job!" Upon repeated viewings I'll probably get a feel for when the exercise is changing, but I've stopped several times thinking I was done. I may also be having this problem due to the fact that Jackie generally does each move for 1 minute instead of 30 seconds like I'm used to with Jillian Michaels.
This is DEFINITELY a great workout and DEFINITELY worth the purchase. You won't be sorry!
