This dvd set is a must-have for anyone looking for incredible results for every problem area I have. Pauline's upper and lower body workouts are fun (and she is very funny too) but you will feel and see the results by following her routine workout. I am 55 years old and have not worked out regularly for more than 10 years; although weight gain has never been an issue for me, I was very out of shape and "jiggly" in the legs, butt, and arms. I had never worked with dumbells before, and began with a 3 lb. set. Pauline's workouts are tough, but not too difficult to do once you adapt to the pace and workout. I started with Level 1 and stayed with it for longer than the recommended 2 weeks before moving up to Level 2. After about 3-4 weeks, I moved up to Level 2 (both upper and lower) and stayed there for another 3-4 weeks. I am almost ready to move to Level 3, but again want to go at my own pace because some of the moves seem too challenging for me. Doing Pauline's workouts have drastically improved my posture, strength, stamina and overall shape. I went from a size 8 to a 6 (which is where I was 10 years ago) and look better in a dress that I have in 20 years. This workout is not for sissies -- but if you want to really get results and transform the cottage cheese thighs and butt and lose jello arm fat -- this workout can't be beat.
