"As far as workout videos go, this is a pretty good one. It gets your heartrate up, and I really felt it in my arms. A lot of videos that incorporate weights (and even ones that don't) seem to focus more on the lower body, but this one really focuses on the upper body and I felt the burn. You will need 3-5 lb handweights. I used 3 lbs because it was so uptempo, 5 was too much.
The crazy thing about this video is that it is not what it appears. The image on the front cover is just a stock photo. The actual workout on the dvd is filmed in Australia, with Australian instructors. Not only that, but unless Australia is waaaay behind the US in fashion, it had to have been filmed at least 15 years ago. The clothes, hair, music and even the exercises themselves are very dated.
The video is instructed by a female, but there is also a male in the cast who speaks from time to time, I guess just to add color? I have another video from the same series and though the instructors are different, it's the same format; female lead, male "sidekick." It can be corny, but also kind of fun.
I got a lot out of this dvd. It's a good workout and it's fun to do, but be warned. It's a little cheesy, and straight from the 80s (or at least the early 90s.) But the Australian accents add variety to my workout library."
