"His workout video Interval Training is one of my favorite workouts, I use it 3 times a week and don't grow tired of it...so when this came out I was excited to get it. Disappointment ensued. I tried it twice and likely won't put it in again. The background women look identical like they are out of a Simply Irresistible 80's video, dressed alike, no individual personalities. They keep making funny faces and are distracting.
I didn't like the format of the videos either. Warm up and Cool down are on one disk and cardio on another. So you have to pop video one in, warm up, video 2 in workout, video one back in to do cool down."

"Like other reviewers of Gilad's products, I was introduced to his no-frills aerobics workouts back in the nineties. I used to tape his "Bodies in Motion" and his sister's "Basic Training" workouts to use over the weekends. As my level of fitness improved, I moved on to other instructors. Then, life got more complicated. Knees became weaker and yoga replaced jogging and jumping. For quite a number of years my Gilad tapes laid in the back of my closet collecting dust. A couple of months ago, however, and while I was looking for a way to get some much needed aerobic conditioning without killing my knees, I rediscovered Gilad again.
Any time-deprived fan of Gilad will appreciate "Express Workouts." I certainly am. This 2-DVD set features 15 workouts that are under 10 minutes each. I can combine different segments to fit my schedule and to concentrate on the body parts I need to strengthen. DVD 1 features an 8-minute warm up and then individual segments meant to tone and work the back, chest, arms, shoulders, buns, hips and tights. You'll need a set of weights if you're doing DVD 1.
DVD 2 contains seven workouts. The first one, "Dynamic Moves" is a low impact workout. The moves (twists, squats, etc.) will certainly be familiar to those who have used other Gilad's DVDs. The second segment, "Strength & Balance" is a yoga-inspired workout. "Basic Cardio 1" is another low impact routine using grapevines, jump rope and boxing movements. "Cardio 2-Challenge" continues with the boxing and martial arts inspired movements. If you have done "Gilad's Elite Forces Fat Burning Workout," you should have no problem doing both cardio segments back to back. The fifth segment, "Compound Strength" combines lunges with biceps and triceps work. In the final two segments, "Core Foundations" and "Core Challenge," Gilad targets the abdominal area by doing crunches, roll ups and backstrokes.
As always, Gilad is excellent in his emphasis on form. What I miss from this DVD, however, was the synergy he and his exercise mates had in the earlier programs. It made those old "Bodies in Motion" workouts on the beach lively and full of fun to watch and follow. Still, I recommend "Express Workouts" to anybody who is starting a fitness program and to those who'd like to mix and customize their workouts to fit time availability, mood or need.
Very Well Done

"I know Gilad has been out a long time and it shows, he is far the best trainer I have seen. No I am not related to him but this DVD set is great and he motivates you to do the work and have fun at the same time. Very good value too, like it."

"My cable does not carry fittv anymore and I really miss Gilad's workout. I am very happy with this 2 DVD set. It has short workouts that you can pick and choose. It is the same Gilad with no nonsense exercises that I have no problem following. If you like the fittv Gilad workouts, you will like this DVD set.
I got this in a week with free shipment, so it was fast and no wait.
