Movie Reviews

Love this workout - boy did I sweat!
Terry | Pleasant Garden, NC | 05/15/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am a more advanced spinner, so it is hard to find dvd's that push me hard enough & keep me motivated. Boy, did this one do the trick. It is longer than most I have - it is 70 minutes if you do all the segments. Most of the other dvd's I have are only 30-40 minutes including warm-up & cool down. So it definitely pushes me to the limit more than the others. I also like the instructor. She is less canned and doesnt act so much like she is a robot reading a teleprompter. She has lots of energy & personality. I also like that the video occasionally simulates an actual outdoor ride. Like climbing a hill to catch a group of riders up ahead. Also a dog chasing you as a motivation to sprint. Anyway who cycles outdoors knows all too well the reality of dog chases. So I found this amusing. Great dvd - definitely worth getting!"

"Mindy really keeps you motivated and I got a great workout. She's a bit silly, but not annoying. She keeps chatting and the time flys. The full workout is about 70 minutes. I like how you can easily adjust the ride to fit the time you have. Great DVD."
Spinning tape

"Fun, inspiring instructor. Fun scenarios (don't remember if the dog chases you in this one or her other one- but it sure made me increase my pedal speed). Great workout; you can decrease the time you spend or go all out with this one.

Combine this with the Robert Sherman ones (he gets more into the physiology of the ride)- Mindy's is probably more fun. For the serious spinner, both instructors have lots to offer."
A Fun Ride, Great Workout

"I purchased (1) Cycle Reebok: Foundations and Interval Training with Robert Sherman, (2) Mindy Mylrea's Super Cycle: The Best Ride in Town and (3) Bike-O-Vision Cycling DVD #12 Oregon at the same time. I have been very happy with the first two, and plan on selling the Oregon DVD shortly.

Robert Sherman's DVD is very focused on building strength and skill while maintaining control. He does have the intense, almost cheesy persona that others wrote about, but I find that I really like that. It helps me stay in his game, like he's always trying to hang on to you mentally. Robert talks a lot about staying internally focused, and makes it all about you and your experience. It's meditative in a way - he asks you to close your eyes, envision your body, stuff like that. My maximum heart rate is around 180, and with his workouts, I generally find myself in the 155-165 range, reaching 175 during the last set. He gives regular opportunities to recover and stretch.

Mindy Mylrea takes a different approach. Instead of the internal focus, she is very external - you are trying to catch up with a friend, pass a professional cycler and then run from a big dog. She keeps my heart range in the 165-175, with an occasion 180+. She keeps you running for longer intervals, and gives less recovery overall. She is very upbeat and smiley. I find both Mindy and Robert offer a likeable, valuable workout. Neither has great music, but I don't find myself noticing that very much.

Finally, I don't care much for the Oregon DVD. The music is classic and instrumental, though you could mute that and listen to your own stuff. The ride is pretty, but there's no real sense of hill climbing or speed. You completely have to make it up yourself. Also, sometimes you are sort of going uphill and then you switch to a different part of the road with no clear transition. I would rather spend my time watching DVD's of TV series I like than watch this while cycling."
