I almost sent this dvd back -- until I tried the 10 minutes of bonus workouts at the end. They are worth the price of this DVD. I do not care for the other exercises, so I just do the bonus section after my regular workouts (after I run on treadmill or do step aerobics, etc). They would be great to go thru twice if you only have a short lunch hour on some days to work out.
This is an interval based exercise DVD. Satisfactory instructors lead good, solid workouts. I prefer the "Metabolism Boost" for 20 minutes with the pleasant and likable, Jessica Smith. Classic, but effective exercises, but I like watching her and am comfortable with her personality. Jessica uses cardio bursts such as jumping jacks in between weight lifting. One can not miss the count down time clock in the upper corner! For a killer total body workout, I love Michael Carson's "Fat Burning Cardio" for 20 minutes. I alternate between a lightweight ball (aka, the playground ball) and a 3 lb. ball. I love those torso twists he incorporates into the workout. I go on my own pace, because he is quite speedy. Either pace, your body will fully work. Happier with this more than the TOTAL BODY TONING, even though my fav, Stephanie Vittorino is not featured.
