"Much as I would love to look like the girls in these tapes, I can't believe these workouts are going to get me there. I did these routines pretty faithfully for over a month and see no difference ... probably because you barely feel anything when you do them. Brad's chatter is awful, all geared to what you're going to look like rather than any kind of health improvement (and I really don't appreciate hearing a man talk about "monthly bloat"). Spending a little money on a better set and more than one camera (so that it's not just one angle for the entire routine) might have helped a bit, but still might not have been enough. I have retired these as way too boring and not effective enough. Sorry, Brad."
A Great Set of Workouts to Add to Your Collection

"I really like these workout videos even though the workout models don't look happy at all...Not a smile in the house :-( These series offer a great workout when you're crunched for time. They're short, done in proper form, and very easy to follow. On each video, there's three programs to chose from and each are only 12 min. long. Each level a little harder then the first. Each program starts out with an optional demonstration of proper form. (The Abs video focus totally on abs, the Thigh video focus totally on thighs, and the Butt focuses on just Butt workouts) I wish there was a look great naked "arms" video, I'd buy it. On each video, there's three different workouts per level, each done in three sets of 15 reps. After every complete set (45 total reps), a stretch is done for muscle flexibility before starting the next set. I almost forgot, there is a short warm up that I fast forward through because I warm up on my own cardio equipment. Most videos are encouraging, motivational, and some are very inspiring, not this video. Not once, on this video, does the women or the instructor, for that matter, crack a smile. I will admit, the models suck, but, other then that, you've got yourself a great, all around, workout video set that's worth the money."
Schoenfeld is the best

"These routines are fantastic to do at home. I'm a workout fanatic and you will definitely see results if you follow through with these workouts. Of course, you need to be in some sort of shape as these exercise can be considered to be "finishing touches" to tone your physique. Every other day I do 1 workout from each dvd. You can go about 3 months without the ankle weights and the weight bar but incorporating them adds to the results.
Initially, I had borrowed these tapes from my best friend and when she asked for them back, I immediately ordered my own because I like them so much. I also got 2 of Brad Schoenfeld's books "Sculpting her body perfect" and "Look Great Naked" they are both very informative and helpful.
I was reading the other reviews about this workout routine about how the women are boring and how they look bored. They look like porn stars and looking at their bodies while I do these workouts serve to motivate me. It's the content that counts, who cares if the music is cheesy and the set looks stupid?"
