This actually is NOT 30 minutes. It has a 5 minute Warm-Up, Cardio Level 1 is 20 minutes, Cardio Level 2 is 10 minutes, Cardio Level 3 is 10 minutes and there is a 5 minute Cool-Down. Thus 50 minutes, not 30! 6 week program...add levels as you progress.

AWESOME cardio workout! Better/more effective than the P90X Kenpp workout!

This is a serious workout!
You can customize your workout (Warmup, Levels 1,2,3, Cool down - any combination or one at a time if you want.
It challenges you to push yourself
Some the moves were HARD (i.e., squat thrusts, military pushups)
I pulled muscles a couple times with this workout, which indicates to me that I did not get a good understanding of the correct form
Too much trash talking and chitter chatter for me (Bob walking around, *insert name* "looking all good.."
It's ideal for intermediate or advanced. Beginners can do it, but will probably have several stints of catching your breath and watching the team work.
Summary: Good workout DVD, not for me (swapped)

This is a great DVD for the home exerciser! You have so many options. The first cardio session is 20 minute lower impact (but not easy) workout that includes hand held weights. There is also a pushup session in the middle which I'm not crazy about because I don't like to get on the floor with my heartrate up, but that's me..
The second 10 cardio session includes more jumps and but is still pure cardio...
The third 10 minute session is supposed to be the hardest, but for me is easier than the second because it includs kick-boxing moves which are easier on my joints,
So if I want a 30 minute workout, I can just customize the DVD to do the first session with a warm-up and cool-down.
I usually like to workout longer so I program a warm-up, ses 1, ses. 3, then ses 2, and a cool down. The options are limitless. If you need cardio, this is a good DVD to have.

"As someone with weight issues, I have bought several DVDs over the years with moderate difficulty. So, when I saw this DVD was coming out, I was excited to get a workout that would be challenging, yet in line with the needs and abilities of someone overweight.
All I can say is: OW. The "Level 1" work out and even the warm up are very hard core. In fact, all I could think about was the thought of whether or not some of my friends in average shape could even do these work outs without falling over. Like someone noted earlier, there is pretty much NO warm up...it is basically an intense mini work out.
My main reason for writing this review is to warn people about the push up exercise that Bob has you do in the Level 1. Seriously?! I found that to be more for someone in the higher-end moderate to advanced level of fitness. After doing that workout, I pulled something in my chest and it hurt for a good 2 days.
The style is nice and not too cheesy, and I did like the Yoga cool down. However, for a show that caters towards helping obese people become fit, I was disappointed in what I saw as unrealistic expectations for a beginner."
Pretty good :-)

"As you can tell by the cover, this workout is led by the three Biggest Loser trainers, Bob, Jillian and Kim. They are all outgoing and motivating and in this 50 minute workout, you will definately burn calories.
You can play any segment in any order which I like to avoid boredom, or you can choose some of the challenging premixes. Bob leads a bootcamp segment where you can do the moves with or without weights to make it tougher if you want. Jillian doesn't mess around with her high intensity drills. They are tough, but stick to it for a while and it will get easier. Then at the end, Kim does kickboxing (which really gets your heart rate up). Some of seasons 3 and 4 are here too and they look great.
I like this workout because it's tough and yet fun and I've only done it once so far, but I'm still feeling it and can't wait to try it again because I know it will get easier and it's a definate calorie and fat burner."

"So I am hugely overweight, and just had a baby. I thought that I would give this video a try, and I LOVE it. I am still on the level 1 work out, but am getting better every day. I can now do the whole 30 minute level 1 work out. Next week I am going to be adding level 2. In only 2 1/2 weeks I have lost 14 inches and 12 lbs. Now I still have 80 to go, but it is a good start. Bob does the level 1, and he keeps me motivated thru the whole work out. Right when I think I am about to die, he starts counting down, and tells me I can do it, and I believe him. Rather than sitting on my couch hoping the Biggest Loser comes and casts me, I decided that the more logical option would be to bring the biggest loser trainers to me. I would recommend this to everyone, from those who only have 10 lbs to lose to people like me who have 50+."
