"Well, if you're looking for a quick workout that'll make you sweat, this does that. You're essentially jumping up and down for twenty minutes. However, if you're looking for something that doesn't look low-budget, you should bypass this one and keep looking. The script is cheesy; the acting, of course, is horrendous. Sometimes the soundtrack didn't line up with the video. The most frightening aspect of this is the fact that during a warm-up stretch, the "fitness guru" actually says, "You should feel this stretch in your hamstrings" while pointing at her calf. On the menu to the DVD, "recipes" is actually spelled "recepies." And finally, when you make a selection on the menu, it doesn't always take you to the appropriate section, though you eventually get there anyway. Can you believe I got all this from using the DVD once? All in all, despite the rather boring workout, my calves hurt the next day, but all of the amateur parts of this video are too blatant to ignore. If someone in production couldn't clue the fitness chick into which part of her body she's actually using or even use spell check, I wonder what I'd find just one more time through. Buy Tae-Bo. You'll get more out of it."
