"This DVD was a great workout,shot in beautiful locations, but I was expecting a little more body sculpting in those specific areas(Abs,Buns,Thighs). It was 3 20 min.programs. 1 program had slight weights(circuit traing). The other 2 were hi/low aerobics.So I was disappointed in the naming of this workout. I feel it is definitely an aerobics based taped, not sculpting for your Abs-Buns&Thighs.I am going to try the pilates tape,because of the beautiful locations and I like Shelley & Jennifer."
A Great Effective Cardio Workout with a Misleading Title!

"The title is misleading: Abs, Buns and Thighs remind me of a strength training workout however this DVD is all-cardio with very minimal strength training. It's a fun and intense (intermediate-level) workout! You get three 20-minute segments: 1 circuit training, 1 more-low impact and 1 more-high impact workouts. I got a good sweat after I did all three segments and I consider myself a high intermediate/low advanced exerciser. I didn't have a hard time following the moves and I disagree with Tina who said that the focus of the camera is more on headshots and the upper body. I have done this workout a couple of times already and the focus of the camera is on the total body with some upper and lower body focus. I also disagree with Tina when she said the kickboxing is easy. Fact is, there is no kickboxing segment in this DVD. People should note that these workouts were taken from Fit TV so there are naturally "gaps" or "breaks" where they put in the commercials. However, for the DVD, you don't get the commercials so that's why people think there are "interruptions" in filming. I was able to follow the moves right after the "breaks" so I didn't have a problem at all. All in all, a great purchase at a bargain price!"
Its a fun cardio workout

"I like the Carribbean series because they are fun, they provide a great workout, and I don't get bored with them. This dvd has 3 20 minute workouts on it. Both the first and second workout have moves that really work the areas listed in the title. The first called "circuit training" is really a high impact cardio with 4 interludes of a various squat with weighted arm lifts. The second workout is another great high impact cardio. The 3rd workout is not high impact like it the menu states, its really a low-impact."
Excellent workout if your up for it

"The work out is great. It is exhausting and it kicks my butt. If you don't mind working up a sweat go for it. It's an engaging exercise program that really works to tone and firm abs, buns and thighs. It's really working for me. Also, the Caribbean Workout Core Pilates is great...its tough for me but I love it."
NOT Abs & Thighs

"This was a waste of money especially since I had already purchased the double pack of kickboxing and aerobics. It has two of the same workouts that are on the aerobics DVD. I purchased this because I thought it would be more sculpting and that would compliment the cardio workouts I purchased but that was not the case."
