I am at an intermediate level and I loved this workout. I was sweating buckets by the end. Jari has variations for beginners and advanced. She even has challenges for those that are super advanced. Jari's queing is good and she isn't too irritating as a workout leader.
I "LOVE" this workout!

"Jari is quickly becoming my favorite instructor! I have yet to ever find an instructor that:
a) Works me hard
b) Gives a complete total body workout (no muscles left untouched)
c) Makes a 60+ minute workout FLY BY
d) Not only works my body so that I feel it later, but ALSO allows me the energy to get on with my day even just after finishing her workouts!
I am completely amazed by this woman! I tried Body Rock's Weight/Abs section last week and quickly ordered her 5 Disc Set (this DVD came in it) along with her 2 other newer workouts. I did this DVD this morning and I felt so good, so strong, and so worked, yet relaxed, energized, and excited for my next session with Jari. It's hard to explain! In this DVD you will find that each track is approx 5 minutes long and most feature an upper and lower body compound exercise. If not, then you will have 2 lower body compounds or 2 upper/ab compounds. Examples are the squat/lunge track and the tricep pushups and tricep kickbacks/core balance challenge tracks. She works you thoroughly and all while giving tips and modification options for beginners as well as advanced. She reminds the user to go heavier (unless new) to provide the most challenge, yet to pyramid down in weight if/when your form is compromised. Some other reviews mention the electronic voice description of the next track as being some what "80s" but it's not bad. I also enjoy that the first 1 min of each track is used for Jari's decription and weight selection graphs; this allows you to get settled with your equipment and weight ranges. You will need a mat, several dumbbells, and a step with risers is optional- hense the 1 min breaks are nice so you can adjust your step as needed. This is the first time I have done this workout so in the future I will know what is coming. However, those breaks will still be great as I will surely be increasing my weights.
I never thought, ever, that Jari's workouts would be so enjoyable. I have previewed clips of hers over the recent years but never did the workouts. I always assumed the 5 min "tracks" would be too long and boring, but I am amazed at how quickly that time flys! I can feel muscles working that I haven't in too long of a time. Injury proned muscles are worked to failure without pain and stress; that has NEVER happened for me. I am not in pain the next day, but I do feel the workout. I can see now why endurance athletes use her workouts and now I can say that I am hooked. I only thought that Cathe Friedrich could provide a hardcore strength workout...not true! I am thankful that I decided to try her DVDs. my body just can't handle the ultra heavy weights anymore; too many injuries that flare up. Jari's work me and will rebuild the atrophied muscle and give me definition without having to be too taxing on my joints. I'm so convinced that her workouts help that I am signing up for Spinning Classes! This one is great bc the aerobic effect is there through most of the workout and especially so if you use the step. It's pure strength but bc it's compound exercises, it get's the heart rate up there. It's like doing 2 workouts in one. This is the first 60+ minute workout that I have done in over 6 months and I felt great afterwards. To know that some ladies use 10s as their "medium" weight is inspiring considering some of the reps are well over 70!
I'd buy this again in a heartbeat and look forward to doing it again very soon!
EDIT: 1 day later and my legs (Hamstrings & Glutes), chest, and biceps are feeling this!"

"I originally rented Ripped to the Core through Netflix to see if I would like it. I worked up a nice sweat and I loved it. I have to allow over an hour of available time though-but its well worth it. The soreness the next day (well-during the night) makes my body well aware that this workout is doing its job!"
