I just received this in a trade and boy I'll have to say I love it. I have over 100 workout dvds and this is one of the best. I'm thankful I ran across this one.

The cardio segment is a great athletic style workout that burns a lot of calories and is great for intermediate levels. You will feel the lower body strength work the next day. I like Jessica as and instructor and I keep this on my regular rotation.

Unique DVD contains various workouts customizable to your bo
Beth Cholette | Upstate NY USA | 04/16/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The concept behind this unique DVD from Women's Health is to provide different workout options for different body types. There is a weekly schedule of pre-assembled complete workouts for three different body types, Classic Curvy, Athletic Build, or Long and Lean. Although the routines for each type utilize the same workout segments, they are combined differently according to type (e.g., the Curvy rotation includes three days of cardio, whereas the Athletic rotation contains more strength work). The individual workout segments are as follows:

Warm-Up, 4 minutes
Cardio, 22 minutes
Upper Body, 12 minutes
Lower Body, 13 minutes
Abs & Core, 9 minutes
Cool-Down, 6 minutes

There are also three "Amp It Up" segments that can be used as optional add-ons:

Kick-It, 5 minutes (kickboxing drills)
Super Slow, 5 minutes (slow weight lifting)
Power Flow, 7 minutes (flowing yoga and core work)

In addition to using the three pre-programmed workouts (which allow you simply to select the day and go), you can also create you own, fully customized routines by mixing and match any of the above individual segments. The cardio in particular is very challenging: although it is short, it is high-intensity, high-impact. It is presented in four rounds, which each round consisting of three 30-second intense intervals and then a single 30-second recovery interval. Brief jogs are used to facilitate the quick transitions between intervals, and each round is performed twice total. Instructor Jessica Smith works out with two background exercisers who show easier and more difficult modifications for most of the moves.

I would definitely recommend this video to anyone looking to purchase a single fitness DVD with a wide variety of options. Although easier modifications are shown, most of the segments are quite challenging, and therefore I would not recommend this video for beginners. On the other hand, there is no heavy weight lifting either (Jessica recommends 3-5 lbs., although I went heavier for most of the exercises), so more advanced exercisers may be a bit disappointed. However, I think this video is perfect for those at an intermediate level like myself; you will work hard and just might enhance your body type in the process!"
Another great one from Women's Health

"This is one of those fun, new programmable DVDs where you can mix and match the exercises in the order you want, and even do the same segment more than once. You can customize your workout from the warm-up (4 minutes), upper body (12 minutes), lower body (13 minutes), abs & core (9 minutes), cardio (22 minutes) and cool-down (6 minutes) Several of the lower body and abs & core moves come from Pilates (i.e., leg circles, double leg stretch.) The cardio was much more intense than the other Women's Health DVD - the Wedding Workout. The pre-programs include "Curvy Bodies" which suggests 3 days of cardio, 1 of upper body, 1 of lower body, and 1 of abs & core; "Lean Bodies" which suggests 1 day of cardio, 2 days of upper body, 2 days of lower body, and 1 day of abs & core, and "Athletic Bodies" which suggests 1 day of upper body, 1 day of lower body, 2 days of cardio, and 1 day of abs & core. The bonus segments include tips on meals and nutrition. While I didn't enjoy the cardio as much as I did the WW DVD, I just modified some of the higher impact moves; I'll keep this for the strength work for sure!
Great Work Out!!

"I found this to be a GREAT workout video. I usually do Turbo Jam, so I love high intensity workouts. This defiantly makes me sweat and get fatigued. I wasn't sure about it because the cover didn't say much about it. Boy, am I glad I got it. I just thought I'd write a review about it so others had more info about it. Overall, I am very impressed!

Warm Up 4 Mins
Cardio 22 Mis
Upper Body 12 Mins
Lower Body 13 Mins
Abs and Core 9 Mins
Cool Down 6 Mins
Amp It up
Kick It 5 Mins (high intensity Kick boxing based drill)
Super Slow 5 Mins (Slower tempo weight routine using heavier dumbbells)
Power Flow 7 Mins (A routine based on Yoga, Pilates and other stretches)
