Really strange workout videos

"This box set, if you can see beyond some of the eighties clothing, the senior stretches, and the erotic yoga, is actually pretty good.
GOOD -- It has aerobics. Yes, aerobics, and a few hours of them. Not tae-bo, pilates, power-yoga, but hard core, totally late-eighties, aerobics. I can't find them anywhere on the market, except here. Aerobics were my initiation into the world of fitness, so for me those programs bring back memories. They have been (rightfully) replaced with safer methods, but why take everything so seriously?
GOOD -- It has something like tae bo, which is good too, and that is far less dated than the super '80s aerobics sequences. The kickboxing segments are called ''kick butt'' and ''tai fit.'' Both of them have outstanding instruction.
BAD -- It has ¨stretching for the elderly¨ -- really, it is called ¨more alive¨ -- I guess if you follow the exercise routine, you will be 'less dead'. Yes, that is kind of disturbing, if you are awake and alive enough to see why.
BAD -- There is a yoga sequence, which is a total perversion of everything yoga. It is an erotic portrayal of the blond yoga student (Jerry Hall) theoretically working under a more experienced Indian lady who knows yoga. The student has blue eyes, and bright lipstick.
BAD -- The introduction totally paints her whole body with henna, which turns into a pattern on her eighties sweat pants. She sits in a lotus position, and she morphs into 'some-sort-of-oriental-symbol.'
I was horrified at this approach to teaching Yoga.
I don't see any compensation postures, reps, or flow in the sequence. But I guess that really wasn't the point of the video, so why bother with the yoga part anyway?
It attempts to teach yogic breathing; Jerry Hall inhales, and her eyes sink back in ecstasy. The camera zones in on her eye-lashes here, and stays there. I really wonder if the camera man and the director weren't freelance guys that had been in the pornography industry too long.
EXCUSE -- as I see it, the programs aren't as awful as people are claiming. The mixture is as terrible as the presentation. ''yogacize'' and ''kick butt'' are on the same DVD. Totally inappropriate. Imagine confusing the steak sauce with the hot fudge, or eating cole-slaw with sushi. bla!!!
GOOD -- I say that the tai-kick, and the awkward aerobics are the strengths of this totally random series. Really, this is the rocky horror picture show of the fitness industry."
Wish I could give it a NEGATIVE 5 stars

"I've never left a review before - but this one is so bad I just had to keep others from wasting their money. My 10 year old decided to start some daily exercise. When looking at DVD's she decided that this would be a good starting point so she could get a variety of different options and then decide what she liked the best. She was most interested in the "More Alive" and "Fat Burners" programs. Not only are ALL of the programs EXTREMELY dated, but the "Fat Burners" looks like it's the 50th copy made of the same video tape - not even watchable (due to the static) in some areas - and on my copy the "More Alive" program has been replaced by the "Tracy Lords program" - which can only be described as disturbing. This program was NOT listed on the cover. My $20 would have been much better spent on one QUALITY (this century)fitness DVD."
Don't waste your money!

"I was so excited when I bought this DVD because I thought that I was getting a good value. Boy was I in for a shock! I like to sit down and watch the workout tape before I actually do it and to my shock and horror, this was not a new workout series, not even within the last 10 years. Boring, yawn!"
