I would give this dvd a 4 star rating. Denise gives many reminders about body alignment, which is crucial in getting the desired results. The three levels are great for varying days, and you can choose which areas you would like to work, doing just one or combining one or more for a great workout. Even though I would describe myself as intermediate or slightly above, I feel this is a great dvd to add to my collection.

I did like the dvd if you are a beginner for working out.The dvd for me was pretty easy but sometimes it's hard to listen to her not so motivating voice.It's great if your just starting to workout and using a workout dvd for the first time,it was easy to follow.

This DVD is not well-cued. At times,I found myself a little lost. However, it was a good workout.

This video is quite a workout! Lot of various exercises that you can do. IIRC, if you have a more advanced DVD player, you can program the segments you wish to play. But I really need workouts that are limited to 30 minutes or less, and the recommended workouts here were nearly an hour. So I'm sending it off to someone who can use it. There is a booklet inside that contains recipes and diet recommendations. I really like her recipes from her web site, so I think they're likely to be a hit with someone who is looking to improve their eating lifestyle.

Denise Takes you from Unfit to Fit in Just Weeks
A. Bartlett | 11/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Having recently decided to get fit, I searched and searched for an exercise video that could take me from beginner to as advanced as I want to be in just a few short weeks. The custom workout is perfect for gaining not only strength but confidence in the fact that you know you are getting better with each workout. I have only been using this DVD for 5 weeks and can now make it through 95% of the abs workout without missing a beat...and that's after laying on the floor through most of it the first time (I'm 44)!! I highly recommend this for anyone wanting to get fit and stay fit."
Nice Use of Technology to Personalize Your Routine
A. Reid | NC, USA | 05/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have been doing Denise Austin's Shrink Your Female Fat Zones for 6 weeks, and 2 weeks ago added this DVD to put some variety in the routine. I love it!

What I love most about it is the technology in the DVD, which allows you to customize your routine, choosing from a menu (in most sections with subcategories covering your level of expertise) of arms, legs, abs, stretching & cardio. If you pick one from each category, you'll get an hour long work-out, but you can go as low as 10 or 20 minutes.

Denise is her usual chatty self in these routines, offering you encouragement and explaining what muscles you're working--occasionally piping in late with an essential bit of instruction (like how you're supposed to be breathing during a particular exercise) and on one exercise forgetting a step (which she does perform on the other leg). As with my other Austin tape, I like her and her presentation enough to make allowances for this, but you do need to remember these belatedly mentioned techniques so that you can begin to anticipate them on later use of the DVD. When you're familiar enough with the routine, if you like, you have the option of shutting off Denise's voice and working out to the music alone. Since I can't watch the screen during many of these exercises, I'm not sure that's a route I'll ever go.

The cardio routine seems a little complicated to me. It feels like a slightly frantic line dance, but it does get the pulse going, which is the point. The stretches, arms, legs & ab exercises are nothing too unusual, but as with the other tape I have, Austin presents a good variety to cover all the major muscle groups involved. I find some of the workout here more difficult than on Austin's Shrink Your Female Fat Zones, which moves around from area to area, even though I suspect you're hitting the same muscles with the same intensity. When you group the exercises together as they are here, you really feel it. By the end of the 10-minute arm workout, my muscles are really straining.

Equipment required: 3 to 8 lb. handweights, a towel & a dining room table type chair (I'm using my stability ball)."
L-O-V-E it!

"I ordered this DVD with high expectations after reading all the reviews! I've got to tell you... it met all of them. You can choose an all Low level, Moderate level or high intensity workout (which includes abs and full body stretch) or you can truly customize your workout. The DVD lets you preset what level you want for every specific workout before you even start so that there aren't any interruptions between the chapters. I almost hate to admit it but... I choose the Low intensity workout starting out. I was sweating more than what I thought I would. I even still found some of the Abs and thigh exercises challenging!! I think that Denise is EXTREMEMLY motivational and can really help you keep up your momentum. I know many times I would remember to tighten my Abs while exercising with her catch phrase, "Zip up those Abs!!"
*I would recommend this to everyone at any fitness level because this is a workout that than "grow" with up as you become more fit! 5 stars from me!
