"OK, I'm going to be honest--I originally got the DVD because I'm a fan of Girls Next Door & thought it looked like it would be a fun workout, based on the episode I saw where the girls were putting the video together. As it turns out, I was more than pleasantly surprised at how challenging the workouts actually were... though I was really disappointed with Kendra's, which really felt like a waste of time to me. Here's a break-down of each 15-minute workout:
Holly's 'Express' Workout: By far my favorite on the DVD, Holly's routine is very user-friendly & leaves you feeling like you've been working out for a lot longer than the 15 minutes. Though it doesn't mention it on the packaging, you'll need weights and an exercise ball.
Bridget's 'Boot Camp' Workout: No complaints here; I was sore the next day, though, that's for sure! Bridget takes the 'Boot Camp' theme seriously and leads a rigorous, total-body toning session in her 15 minutes; the only downside is that she seems really, really nervous & it comes across every once in awhile during her routine. You'll need a pair of weights for this workout.
Kendra's Martial Arts Demonstration: Really, this workout isn't even worth bothering with. Think Tae-Bo, but really watered-down and with a blond ponytail, and you've got it. The first three minutes of her section are basically of her dancing, followed by 10 minutes or so of jump roping & a few martial arts moves (kicking, punching and shadow boxing) I didn't even break a sweat during this one.
Overall, a great DVD with charismatic, encouraging "leaders" for quick, fun toning--just skip Kendra's section and work through Holly & Bridget's for a heart-pumping 30 minute workout."

"I love watching The Girls Next Door and I caught the episode of them making the workout dvd, as soon as it was over I went online and pre-ordered it. I got it today and tried it out. I'm a fit person who works out everyday so I didn't expect too much from it, but hey it's The Girls Next Door so I had to do it. The fifteen minutes with Holly was a nice toning workout to hit some of those difficult places. Then it came to Bridget and man I was sweating like you wouldn't believe by the end of that one. With Kendra, it was an awesome power workout at the end of the dvd. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to have a good time hitting some key places that everyone wants to look great. Great job Holly, Bridget and Kendra!"
Pure fun...and pain!

"I love this workout DVD! It kicked my butt, my quads still hurt. I was laughing and sweating for the whole thing. It feels real, like your one of their friends and you're just working out together. I was never bored or felt like I wanted to stop the video...which I usually do! I highly recommend this for anyone that needs a good motivater and a good laugh."

"After having two kids in two years, my body was a complete mess. I had almost given up, but I was watching our local cable and saw the Girls video sneak peak. I taped it and came back after the kids went down for a nap. By the time I was done with all three workouts (45 min), I was sweating and laughing. I had a great time. Holly talks to you like you are one of her close friends, and Bridgett and Kendra get you completely worn out. It was great! I went for a jog after, and a couple weeks later I can already see results."

"I really liked this workout DVD because it's kind of like watching an episode of the show, which I really enjoy. The only thing I would say (reason why I didn't give it 5 stars) is that there is a little redundancy with Holly and Bridget's workouts. Still great though! I like this workout DVD because I know that I will do it more than once, unlike others I've tried in the past. So, overall - a good workout and I would love to see more workouts in the future from the girls!"
