This is a good beginner/intermediate workout. I would consider myself at an intermediate level and found that after doing the workout, I wasn't very sore the next day.
Strength and balance

"I've done this workout a few times since I received it, and I enjoy it more and more each time.
There's a short warmup at the beginning and a short cool-down/stretch at the end of the workout, and you're going to do some serious work in between. You know how a lot of home workout DVD's claim the exercises will work both upper and lower body at the same time? Well, that's EXACTLY what you get here. Think pelvic tilts WITH chest flies while lying on your back, or rows PLUS leg pulses while standing.
The diversity is quite amazing, too: one background exerciser will show the beginner's version, the other one will do the intermediate version and Jeffrey will do the advanced moves. There's a VERY high repetition of each exercise (Jeffrey starts together with the two girls, then he goes back and starts explaining each version, which always takes some time, so that way it doesn't get boring), and the more times you complete the program, the more experienced you're gonna be, so you can do your own version of each exercise from the beginning if you feel like it. If you use heavier sets of weights, you can always make it more challenging.
Even though it's strictly a toning program, if you find your own level, I'm sure you'll end up doing some serious sweating (I know I have).
Altogether, it's great series of exercises, and I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a variable and tough workout."

"This is a nice basic workout done with lighter weights because of the high reps and compound moves. There is also a good deal of balance work in this workout, which is always nice because balance work is not that easy to find. Jeffrey leads the workout and there are two background exercisers. Jeffrey does the most intense moves and the two background exercisers show less intense options. Jeffrey is friendly and motivating. This workout is a great addition to my strength training collection."
Too many lunges

"This workout is very repetitive with lunges and squats. As someone with bad knees, it would have been nice to know that before purchasing it. The dialogue is a bit cheesey and unprofessional. I did enjoy the floor work. Also, the background setting looks cheap and is therefore distracting."
