Excellent video with fun exercises

"The video is super fun and motivating. The exercises in particular are pretty unique; I have never seen a workout video quite like this one. The exercises are really creative and effective."

"I love Bob Greene's books and watching him on Oprah so just purchased this DVD as it was advertised as a full workout to get in shape but with bonus information. He barely talks at all about getting in shape and some of it is repetitive. On the workout itself I was expecting a get in shape program with lots more info from him instead its lunges...lunges and more lunges and I agree with the previous review about the camera being on him and not on the woman working out. I found this DVD workout boring and the 8 workouts are all the same more lunges!!!! wont be using this again."
Great exercises, but...

"PROS: The exercises are excellent, and the DVD is designed to move progressively, with each week's exercises becoming more challenging.
CONS: It takes a few times to get the exercises exactly right. The camera is often focused on Bob Greene more than the person who is actually doing the exercise (she's often out of frame). Instead of watching her do the exercise, we frequently see him smugly telling her how many more to do. Also, there are times when she is doing the exercise wrong, but we don't know until he corrects her (more than halfway through). Maybe he was too busy hamming it up for the camera to really be watching.
I really enjoyed all of Bob Greene's books, but he really annoys me in this DVD. I'm going to continue to do some of the exercises from the routines, but I am skipping the DVD."

"I have always enjoyed listening to Bob Greene on the Oprah Winfrey show so I thought that this would be an excellent DVD. I expected some cardio accompanied by strength training and stretches. The eight week segments each lasted approximatelly ten to fifteen minutes and consisted mainly of squats, lunges, and crunches. As you continue progressing through the eight week shape up segments, he creates complicated arrangements of more squats, lunges, lifts, and squats. Sometimes the exercise was so elaborate that the movements felt awkward and I began to dread doing the segment. Another problem is that each segment begins rather quickly with the demonstrater doing the exercise full tilt. There is no explanation of how to do the exercise or how heavy a weight to use and a lot of the time the camera focused on Bob instead of the demonstrater. Sometimes the exercise was so elaborate that you would have to watch for a bit before you could perform the exercise. I continue to use the DVD because I hate wasting my money, but I am to the point of filing this DVD under G."
