My four star rating is for those who need just a little encouragement to get off the couch or lazy chair and do a brief, low-impact workout from time to time.

"There are other online retailers that already have released this, so if you don't want to wait till mid November, then try elsewhere first. I couldn't wait for it because I really love Tamilee's dvds. This is another great one from her.
In this workout, there are three different ten minute routines to do. First there is the floorwork for lower body followed by a short but basic step routine using upper body toning moves for shoulders and arms). Then last but not least there is pilates style ab work and regular moves like cycling and plank moves for a tight core. With each 10 minute move, there is a countdown so you can see how much longer you have to go. The segments are short enough anyway, but that in itself is a great thing because everyone can find even ten minutes to do a little exercise.
Even though the segments are short, I find this is very very helpful on days where you don't have much more time, and yet still effective so you feel that you are doing some good for yourself. All you need for this is weights (mainly) and if you want to do the bonus workout at the end, you will need a stability ball. I really enjoy doing this program because she is outgoing and motivating and it's an easy routine when you don't want to tough it out. I highly recommend this to all levels of exercisers."
Simple, effective, and fun!

"This DVD is broken down into four ten minute segments, each of which displays a time-clock counting down on the bottom-right corner of the screen. It also includes a warm-up and cool down, and you will need an exercise mat, a set of light dumbbells, a stability ball, and a Step (a small one will do). The DVD chapters are as follows:
WARM-UP: This 5-minute warm-up involves simple power-walking and basic dance steps - nothing at all complicated but just enough to get the blood circulating.
BUNS & THIGHS: this 10-minuite segment includes leg exercises lying on a mat, such as leg lifts and donkey kicks that really targets the inner thighs and hips. Because it's only ten minutes long, I used 1.5 lb ankle weights. So if you want more of a challenge here, it's quite simple - just increase the weight!
NO-NONSENSE CARDIO STEP: this next 10 Minute segment is deceptively simple yet challenging! Tamilee incorporates basic athletic moves and squats on and over the step using light dumbbells to increase the heart-rate (I'd recommend no more than 2 lbs.). It's so fun that I wish she'd release a full 30-40 minute cardio step workout based on these principles. It's also moderate-impact and not too jarring on the knees, although I did feel a great burn in my thighs.
ABS TO THE CORE: This 10 Minute segment is mostly Pilates-based and while it's not ultra-engaging like her other abdominal routines which really work the muscles to a burn, it is a challenging core-stabilizing and overall balance routine. Plus, you'll actively work the abs more in the bonus segment.
COOL-Down: This 5 Minute segment includes simple stretches set to relaxing percussive music with a slight Indian feel.
BONUS WORKOUT - GET ON THE BALL: This bonus 10-minute segment is both dynamic and relaxing. You'll mostly work the abdominal muscles here, as well as the hips and thighs to some extent, and then perform a relaxing stretch on the ball.
Overall, TamileeWebb is one of my favorite fitness instructors. Her demeanor is warm, engaging and very down-to-earth, and I admire the fact that even though she is in her forties, she remains youthful and `girly' in her attitude and personality. As for the workout itself, time flies by and there's never the dread-factor. I loved the colorful set, the simplicity and effectiveness of the exercises, and the accompanying music. Highly recommended!
What a workout!!

"Tamilee Webb is the greatest of all workout instructors. I have been using all of her videos along with the "Body for Life" fitness/nutrition program and found that Tamilee provides the biggest "bang for your buck" workouts. They are quick and effective, you can do these at home on your own time. Even the busiest of working moms will have time to workout using these videos. Also try Tamilee's "I Want That Body!" workout video... it's the best!"
