Works your Core
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This 2 volume set is great for those who really want to focus on your core and strengthening your lower back by using your core. I have been a Tamilee fan for 12 years, and as in the past, has challenged me again. The first DVD, Cardio Blast (30 minutes) requires alot of core movements and balance. You will also need a lot of room so that you can "Cardio Blast" some of the moves. It definetly takes several attempts to get some of the moves down, however it does get your heart pumping and you are sweating by the end. A bonus feature on this DVD is a 10 minute bun workout that incorporates lunges and squats while utilizing your core. Very good for those who don't have time for the 30 minute cardio or her 40 minute buns of steel tapes.The Second DVD, the weight loss (30 Minutes) is a killer. I viewed the dvd first before doing the exercises and thought it was going to be easy. HA! This again incorporates a lot of core, balancing and also weights. I have a step and follow her but you can do the exercises on the floor. She starts on one leg focusing on that leg for about 12 someodd minutes before you go into 2 sets of free weights. Then you switch and do the other leg, followed by 2 more sets, then finish with some very effective abs. Let me tell you by the time you are done with the leg portion, your leg is quivering from the slow tap up, tap downs and flying leg holds (don't do this then try to do lower body yoga moves, it kills your thighs). This DVD has a 10 minute ab section that is great. You use a ton of obliques and it varies from you standard crunch.Both DVDs have the nutrition plan and give good advice. Tamilee is informative without being annoying. The only downside is that it might be a little frustrating for those lacking balance. But after serveral tries it does get better."
Cardio and Toning

"This set contains the cardio DVD "Cardioblast" plus the toning DVD "Weightloss."
Tamilee is a good, motivating instructor. She cues from your point of view and gives instructions on how to properly do the moves. She's also cute and will ask for "one more, please!"
Cardioblast has a short warm up and stretch and goes into floor cardio. You do not need any additional materials besides yourself, a sweat rag and some good shoes. The workout is broken down into ~5 segments, each with a song. The first song starts slow to warm you up more and the next few songs gradually increase in beats per minute so you get a good effective cardio workout. Tamilee incorporates "core" movements into the cardio, where you have to stick and hold the moves for a few seconds before going on. This cardio workout uses your arms, abs and legs effectively. There is a slower cool down song and a stretch at the end. Overall this workout goes about 35 minutes.
The Weightloss DVD uses a step and handweights to tone the body. Tamilee starts with a short warm up and stretch and then goes into one sided bun work on the step. That lasts about 9 minutes. Then you do a short arm workout and go to the other side of your buns for another 9 minutes. This is again followed by more arm work and eventually some ab work and a cooldown. This video goes about 35 minutes and even though it is not traditional cardio, your heart rate will still increase a bit and you will probably be very sweaty.
I find that either workout alone is good for a day when I am pressed for time, but that combining the workouts back to back is very effective.
Tamilee has 2 other women on set with her and Cindy (back, left) does the beginner modifications and does the Weightloss workout without a step. You will get a better workout with a step though.
These DVD's also have a lot to offer as far as "extras" - There is a nutrition guide and some recipes and on each DVD there is an extra 10 minute toning segment - one has 10 minute buns and one has 10 minute abs that is a rough workout and works mainly the obliques.
Overall, these are solid workouts that have both cardio and toning."

"The 2 Tighter Assets workout are innovative and fun. The Cardio Blast workout incorporates aerobic moves that are not hard to follow. It contains several sections and the moves are not repetitive. It is over before you know it. I prefer the Weight Loss workout which includes more stregth training.
There is one negative about these DVDs -- it takes about 1-2 min to go over the introduction. I was not able to fast forward to start the workout right away. For people who want to do both workouts at the same setting, you will need to wait for the introduction section on your second workout."
Good cardio workout

"I've only tried the CardioBlast DVD of this set so far. I bought it after reading good reviews here. I'm pretty satisfied with it. I am a fan of Tamilee's workouts in general, so I knew going in that this would be good quality. I've been pretty skeptical of "aerobics" workouts in the past because they don't usually seem to get your heart rate up that much in such a short amount of time. This DVD is different!
This workout looks pretty simple, but it's actually far more challenging than it looks. Beginners like me will find it hard to keep up at first. Take several water breaks.
My only complaint is the pace of the DVD. The choreography isn't as basic as some people make it out to be; I think it will take me several more tries to get it down. It was frustrating to be behind or using the wrong feet, etc. If you have two left feet like me, be patient with this workout. Even if you aren't going the right direction or doing the arm movements exactly right, your heart is still pumping and that is what is impt.
Overall, it's a high energy cardio workout that really makes you burn calories. A good buy!"
