A great muscle-toning workout!

"This is a pretty good body-sculpting workout, including a quick warm-up and cool-down in the 35 minutes. It alternates between weight lifting and short bouts (just a few minutes at a time) of cardio without weights. You workout your whole body: abs, arms, legs, buns, etc. There is an extra bun-toning segment on this dvd, which is a real burner! If you have the picture-in-picture feature on your TV, then you can watch something else while having the workout in the smaller screen. That is something I have been able to do and it makes the time go faster. The workout is pretty easy to follow and naturally repetitious, which makes it easy to get a hang of. If you want to get more out of it, then you add to the amount of weight you are lifting. They recommend you have 2 weights (say 5 lbs each) and one heavier weight for a few of the exercises. The instructor is helpful and isn't overbearing in her encouragement. I have a few of the other Crunch videos, and they always have a good atmosphere along with a good group of people that are exercising along with you. This is a good video to do on alternate days; it doesn't really fill the cardio realm of exercise, it being mostly slow movement with weights. This is definitely a toning workout to add to your collection!"
Good solid beginner-intermediate cardio workout

"I think this is an enjoyable way to work-out at home, without signing up to costly gyms or buying expensive workout equipment.If you are advanced, you may find that you will grow out of this video rather quickly. But if you are a beginner, or a moderately fit person, or getting into the workout scene just recently, this is the ideal tape for you. I am moderately fit, although not very strong, and I found that this helps work and strengthen my muscles, and fulfill that cardio work suggested by many fitness experts.The instructor is fun and energetic - I enjoy watching her and working out alongside her instructions (upbeat and encouraging, not overbearing or intrusive). The group in the background is also pleasant and friendly looking, the music is non-intrusive and enjoyable. The instructor takes you through exercise that work your whole body, esp the abs at the end, brings up your heart rate and allows you to cool down all in 35-40 minutes - I enjoy it alot and really wish there was an additional 5-10 minutes (that's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5)The additional 10 minute bun workout video is also fun and effective."
You'd better be able to dance

"I'm not a very coordinated person, but I've had good luck with Crunch workouts in the past. After one minute I could no longer keep up with what they were doing. The choreography gets complicated pretty quick. If this is ok with you then buy the dvd. If you are clumsy like me, skip it."
Have good knees or prepare to suffer!

"I have tried several other Crunch video's in the past, and have loved them. This one, however, was a different story. The tape was very fast-paced, and the moves were difficult to get without being frusterated. I am sorry, but I don't love working out to begin with, and I do not need extra frusteration warding me away. I also noticed that there are several 'Jumping' moves that jarred my *young* knees to the point of pain. Maybe I do not have good 'jumping' form, however I do look to workout videos to set the user up for sucsess, not knee surgery!"
