Movie Reviews

One of my all time favorites

"This is an older workout, from the early 1990's, but it doesn't seem dated. I've had the VHS tape for years and was glad to finally get it on DVD. The DVD is chaptered. I like the aerobics section best, it has basic choreography and is low impact, but delivers a very solid workout. It's about 30 minutes long (including warm-up) and the time flies by. I wish Ada had made more workouts like this, it's one of my favorites that I always come back to."
I hate her!

"[Always consult a physician before starting any exercise routine]
Simply, it has been said that if you 'hate' your workout instructor by the end of the first week - it is a good workout. By the end of the first week I 'hated' Ada. As others noted this is an older 'from VHS' conversion. That does not make it less effective. My primary interest is a cardio/aerobic workout that is 'low impact'.
It is neatly divided into chapter sections.

Three weaknesses in this routine.
First, there is no pre-warm up stretching.
Second, the transition from aerobic to strength training is very short - I pause it here to take a moment to slow the heart rate a little more than she gives time for.
Third, some of the transitions in the stretching portion are quick and do not give time for an adequate stretch. It seems like they were trying to get in a 'one-hour' workout so they sacrificed some time stretching to do it.

This is a good cardio/aerobic exercise video with some weight training - it won't make anyone 'Charles Atlas' but it does provide a decent cardio maintenance routine with the ability to challenge one's self and improve.

The best recommendation I can make is simply - by following the routine every other day [after consulting my physician] - it has lowered my blood pressure [taken daily] and increased everyday stamina."
Loved this one!

"This is my favorite work out of all time! Very effective! I like that it is low impact, yet it really raises your heart rate! Hoping for more Basic Training workouts to become available on dvd....."
