Good workout. I also have other WH's workout dvd's and alternate them each week to keep the workout challenging.
Good intermediate workout :-l

"This workout is OK. It's certainly not my favourite, but it gets the job done and I definately felt the burn and felt 'new' muscles for a day later. I bought it because I enjoyed their book and wanted to see what they did here. They don't only focus on abs, but they have moves to work the entire body. There is some cardio too which is good for overall fat burning - it's not too dificult to do and mainly geared for intermediates. They give you low impact options if the higher impact is too tough to do or if you have bad joints. I have to say that the stretch at the end is really nice and worth the price of the dvd alone. All you need are some dumbbells and you're good to go. It's led well, and while I won't use it all the time, it's good to go back to it everynow and then to keep myself from workout boredom."
Good, but it could have been better

1) Jessica Smith - she is a likeable instructor, knows what she's doing and cues well
2) no fancy moves, everything is pretty much doable but still get's the job done
1) I own Women Health's DVD ( with the same instructor and I believe from the same publisher ) that offers you a possibility to mix and match your workout - you can choose what you want to do, in what sequence, whether you want to repeat a workout segment more than once. It's a shame that something like that is not offered here, I find it very practical
2) workouts are fairly short - only when I did everything back to back did I get a decent, 50 min workout. On the DVD it is suggested that you do weight training every other day, abs twice a week and cardio at least once - I am simply not sure it would be enough.."
Designed especially to help women burn fat and get into shap
