This is a good, basic workout. Not too hard, not too light.

Convenient set of toning workouts

"This DVD amalgamates the individual body segment tapes from the Get Fit Fast/Shortcuts on VHS onto one DVD - and I have to say that I am a fan.
I like it how the segments are only 10 minutes long, each with appropriate stretches to warm up and cool down the areas of the body that you are working out, and each body part has three different intensity levels which you can work out to.
Here's what you get:
3 x 10min Legs & Buns workouts
3 x 10min Arms & Shoulders workous
3 x 10min Abs workouts
The set is reminiscent of an industrial locker room, and what pleases me greatly is that the other exercisers in the tape are of different shapes and sizes - there is one exerciser in particular that looks quite curvy; it is quite refreshing!
That being said, I still think that the best toning DVD I own is Denise Austin's "Shrink Your Female Fat Zones" (though have heard great things about Kathy Smith's "Lift Weights to Lose Weight" and apparently Tamilee Webb's "I Want That Body" is the best one out there), but I am happy that there isn't a complete overlap between the exercises on SYFFZ and the ones on Get Fit Fast so that I can keep my muscles guessing and vary my workouts at the pinnacle of convenience.
For those of you who have been unable to forgive Denise for her personality in the past, PLEASE don't buy any more of her workouts - she will not transform her personality for any single workout she produces (even the Yoga ones!) and she continues to remain her bubbly, motivating self and still doesn't cue as accurately as some would like. If you are laid back and intelligent enough to forgive Denise for her personality and embrace the advantages of strength training, I'd encourage you to get this DVD."
Easy and effective

"This is actually my second time purchasing these vidoes- I bought them a few years ago on VHS, and I like them so much that I decided to buy them on DVD. You really will see results in 6 weeks if you do the exercises 3 times a week. Each level is very brief (Level 1 is just about 5 minutes; Level 3 is about 20 minutes), so it is easy to get started with minimal commitment. Then as you get used to doing the exercises, you don't even notice the increase in time. These are a great supplement to a regular workout to target areas that need a little extra work. I've been a Denise Austin fan for years and I highly recommend this program."
Efficient short workouts

"This DVD is broken into Abs, Legs and Buns, and Arms and Shoulders. Each section has 3 level of intensity and each workout is about 10 minutes long with the exception of level 3 which seems to be closer to 15 minutes. If you follow her instructions I am sure you will see results. She suggests that you do each level about 3 times a week before moving on to the next. You can get a full body workout if you do 1 level of each section. I like this idea and have been using this DVD for a while and I get more comfortable each time and I feel my abs getting stronger, my arms and shoulders tighter and my legs and buns more toned."
