"I bought this exercise dvd because I wanted to find a challenging workout that contained cardio, strength, and flexibility options. While I appreciated that I could adapt the workout into separate, 20-minute ones based on my schedule and that there was a modifier available if I wanted to just do a low-impact routine, I just couldn't get into this dvd.
First, the warm-up semed too short and I still felt "cold" when the actual workout began. Also, I found the cardio boring because it consisted of lots of jumping, squatting, and rather quick kickboxing moves that were hard for me to follow even though I just watched the dvd first. Finally, I found it hard to perform many of the movements without the foam roller that was used in the dvd and thought it would've been nice to see modifications for people who weren't using one.
Overrall, I found Voight's The Complete Sleek Workout to be a disappointment and recommend it only for die-hard Karen Voight fans."
Another great workout by an excellent instructor

"The DVD is well produced and has once again got Karen's excellent cuing and great form. Yes, you do need the foam roller for this workout, but it is a really well worth investment, as Karen shows a lot of different ways of incorporating it into her workout. I especially like the 20 minute preprogrammed options for days when time is tight or when you might like to add sections on to other workouts. The cardio is fun and the toning effective but not too exhausting especially for people like me ,who work out a lot. I want to feel energized after a workout , not completely wiped-out."

"I got this workout when it was on the short-lived infomercial which included the foam roller. This apparently is a re-mix of those 3 50-minute workouts. I expected to love the "Streamline" workout the best. To my surprise, my favorite is the "Sweat" workout, which includes fun, easy-to-follow kickboxing. The Streamline workout just seemed a little odd to me, though effective. Strength is a good solid mix of weight training moves.
I don't use the foam roller when she has you lay on it with the roller in line with your spine; I'm very prone to seasickness, and it makes me queasy. Otherwise, you use the roller for balance on standing exercises and added range of motion on floor exercises.
If you find you must have something for balance, you can use a 4', 1-1/4" dia. wood dowel from the hardware store. Put some cheap rubber cane tips on the ends and you're all set. For floor dumbbell work, you can substitute a wood 2x4 under your shoulders if you want more range."
Good for light days

"Karen Voight: The Complete Sleek Workout
A bit of cardio, a bit of strenght (light dumbells, few repetitions),workout for the whole body but not for advanced exercisers. This is for when you are already sore from another workout and need to go lightely on your body. Karen's posture is excellent. I liked the production and the option of doing everything (cardio+strenght+abs+core/back+stretch) in one 50min workout or separately."
