Awesome toning workout

"This DVD is broken into two segments. The first is a 30 minute upper body and core workout and the second segment is a 30 minute lower body and core workout. This is a very challenging yet fun workout. You will definitely feel it the next morning. I like that Michelle uses some new and interesting moves with the resistance band that is included with the DVD. She is a great instructor who is very knowledgeable and fun at the same time. I would highly recommend this DVD."
A solid upper/lower body strength workout with band work and

"In this video from her Your Body Breakthru series, instructor Michelle Dozois offers two 30-minute workouts, Upper Body and Core and Lower Body and Core. Michelle uses both weights and band work (a flat blue band is included with the workout) for fun, innovative strength training moves. The DVD Main Menu breaks down as follows: Introduction, Upper Body and Core, Lower Body and Core, Chapters, Testimonials, More on Your Body Breakthru, Michelle's personal message, and Contact.
The Chapter menus break down each of the two workouts into four separate segments. For Upper Body and Core, this amounts to 1=warm=up and chest work, 2=back, biceps, & core, 3=chest, triceps, & core, and 4=shoulders, arms, and cool-down. Lower Body and Core is a bit more difficult to break down, but basically, 1=warm-up, squats, and 1-leg balance, 2=squats, plies, and abductions, 3=floor and core work, 4=additional floor and core plus cool-down. Michelle keeps the warm-ups and cool-downs short on both so that you get right into the workouts and finish up with a quick stretch. Both weights and the band were used, sometimes both at the same time.
These felt like a solid intermediate workout to me. One of Michelle's four background exercisers always shows easier modifications, so more beginning exercisers would easily be able to modify by following these moves and using lighter weights. Heavier weights could be used as well, but advanced exercisers looking for a challenge are likely to find this workout a bit too easy. All of Michelle's background exercisers in the Body Breakthru series are from her classes, and their stories (7 total) are featured in the testimonials section. They are quite inspiring, as is Michelle's "personal message," which details her struggles as the mother of an autistic son (the DVD case indicates that it is "Promoting Autism Awareness").
Overall, Michelle has done an excellent job here in creating a challenging workout that is both interesting and fun to do; I definitely recommend it, and I give it a final rating of about 4 1/2 stars."
Great to Get Started

"Michelle is as personable as they get. This workout is not only fun but also doesn't even feel like exercise. Yet you are getting a good one, no doubt. I recommend this workout for those that are just starting and those all the way up to a medium intermediate.
Add this workout to the other Body Breakthru workouts, use them regularly and you will get yourself out of that 60% of obese Americans.
Easy to catch on to, work up a great sweat and have a fun workout with Michelle. She's a pro.
She's great ;-0

"Michelle is a terrific instructor who is motivating and encouraging all while being great at what she does. She knows her stuff and she's outgoing without being overly so and she makes this routine fun even though you are working hard.
You get a resistance band with the dvd and it's used quite a lot in the workout. There are separate upper and lower body workouts and in each you use the band and weights. For a lot of the standing exercises, you are working your core too by engaging your ab muscles while doing squats and such. Each workout is about 30 minutes and I found it to be easy enough but still feeling the benefits from it. She cues really well so you always know what to do and how to do it, and if you combine this with some cardio too, then you're going to get the results you want.
I love Michelle Dozois and if you are looking for a workout by a professional and motivating instructor that is fun to do and somewhat challenging at the same time, then this is for you. Once you've done this you'll want all her other dvds as well. I love this a lot."
