I enjoy all of Prevention's workouts. Chris Freytag is a very good instructor. Fun, fast paced cardio.
Pretty good :-)

"I like the Prevention workouts and Chris Freytag. She's a great instructor who is motivating and fun. She's like Denise Austin only not annoying. She is encouraging and makes this fun to do.
To make it effective and to use variety, there are two workouts here. Both are fat burning - good old fashioned cardio and then interval cardio. If you do them together then you'll get about 50 minutes worth of exercise; or you can do them separately (so that's good to know for busy days or when you can't be bothered). While it's intense, it's easy to follow along to (she's a great cuer). I've done it a couple of times already and find it enjoyable while still getting my heart rate up and before you know it, it's done and trust me - you'll sweat a lot. I'd say it's more for intermediate levels, but even I found it good and it's nice to have variation in your routines, so even if you are advanced, you'll benefit from it too - and if you are a beginner, you'll give yourself something to work toward. I really like this."
Really good except...

"I would have loved to give this 5 stars. There are two workouts, a warm-up, cool-down, a strength training appendix, and even a section where they break down the moves. The only thing they could have added that, in my opinion, would have made this the one of the best out there is a thorough stretch segment. Considering how much squatting and lunging you do (which really works the quadriceps) I would have appreciated some kind of quad stretch in the warm-up, if not an entire segment devoted to stretches. So a word of warning - before you start, stretch those calves and thighs!"

"The routine is strange and does not flow. There are lunges with twisting which caused me to injure my knee. Her moves are not flowing and very awkward. I did not like this at all."
