    Not for a beginners

    I have not exercised since I was in school and had to. Except for playing and running around chasing the kids. I would like this DVD better if she explained the steps and had a spot on it for beginners. I only tried it once after watching it one time and felt that it was to fast paced. I will try watching it a few more times before trying to work out to it again.

    This is the most disappointing Denise Austin exercise video (I own 3). I won't buy any more of hers and here's why. Up until last year, I was 40 lbs. overweight and a former Jazzerciser. I picked up an old D.A. video 2 yrs. ago and found it to be the catlyst I needed to getting into shape again. After buying a couple more last year, I decided to try a Kathy Smith tape and was pleasantly surprised at how well I liked her methods and teaching style MUCH better. Kathy clearly explains her exercises; Denise isn't consistent or clear. In fact, I often don't look at the screen because I know Denise doesn't do the appropriate number of reps or she gets 'lost' and then ad-libs with some impromptu moves. If you do watch her tape closely, you can see her workout partners out-of-step or confused because they're not sure what she's doing (she's either doing or saying something else). In reviewing the 2 older tapes, my more experienced eyes, ears and body now clearly see that Denise is inconsistent and unpracticed. While I appreciate the first video for helping me get started, I won't buy any future tapes. I DO recommend Kathy Smith if you want something professional, crisp and challenging.
