I love Tanja. She's very warm and supportive. She doesn't do the moves too fast.
I do have some trouble keeping form while holding the stability ball (my arms are quite short). I'm might try a smaller ball, but for now I do the workout without holding the ball and it works fine.

Fun, Fun, Fun and Challenging too!
YogaKat | Oregon United States | 11/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fun and challenging ball workout. It is perfect level of aerobic activity and stretching. The instructor, Tanja Djelevic, is very motivating, but not over chatty. It is very easy to follow and was neither too simple nor difficult. I definitely broke out in a sweat! This is the perfect ball workout and I think one of best DVD choices out there! (I have tried just about all of them available.) I love the scenery and the music is very upbeat. If you do this workout on a regular basis you're sure to make improvements to your physical body and emotional well being.

You get 3 workouts: 50, 30, and 10 min, so it's nice to have that choice too!
Nice stability ball cardio work combined with light toning
Beth Cholette | Upstate NY USA | 04/01/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a stability ball workout led by instructor Tanja Djelevic. The DVD offers 3 workout options, a full 50.5 minute workout, a 30.5 minute Express workout (different footage but the same basic exercises), and a 9.5 minute Cardio Lower Body workout (really a short lower body strength session).

The main workout begins seated on the ball for a warm-up that is just under 7 minutes long; the warm-up includes slow squats and lunges to begin raising the heart rate. Tanja then alternates 3 cardio segments with 3 toning segments. Each cardio segment consists of the same series of moves--including squat, squat with side leg lift, lunge, lunge with twist and arabesque, lunge with knee lift and arabesque, and side-to-side twist--although the moves are sped up in each subsequent segment. The first toning segment focuses on biceps, shoulders, and obliques (not using any weights, although Tanja mentions that you can use them), the second on back and chest, and the third on hamstrings and abdominals.

I enjoyed the music for this workout, which had an upbeat, pop sound to it, and I really liked the cardio segments, which incorporated the ball well and definitely raised my heart rate. What I didn't like were the toning segments, which slowed things down too much to continue providing an aerobic benefit yet were too light to really provide any significant strength benefits. However, I did find Tanja to be a likable instructor, and some advanced beginner/low intermediate exercisers may find that this workout provides the right mix for them."
Good Workout

"The 50 minute workout has a lot of cardio and has toning excercises as well. I don't usually gravitate toward excercise videos but this video makes working out with the balance ball fun."
