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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.
