I've only done this once so far, so this may not be the most helpful review, but this workout DVD is HARD! I read somewhere else that it seems like instead of putting the easiest workout first, they put the hardest first. I truly hope this is the case because I could not handle anything harder than the first section! I'd consider myself pretty fit in the cardio department (do about an hour on the elliptical at the gym), but this required more than just cardio fitness. You also need a lot of leg strength because there are a TON of lunge exercises. Too much, IMO. But, this is coming from someone that doesn't do lunges. I barely made it through the 20 minutes, but I was amazed at how much of a workout you can get in such a short amount of time. It really wore me out. I love how the trainer acts though, he was very motivational. He made me feel better about not being about to keep up by saying stuff like 'If you can't do this, just do something, just keep moving!' Anyway, I did the workout 3 days ago and my legs are still very very sore. If you're in poor shape, this may be too much for you to start off with. But, otherwise I can definitely see this helping me shed some pounds!

Caution: this review may ruffle some feathers. If you are physically fit and/or enjoy the pursuit of perfection, then DO NOT get this video. I am an avid athlete and bought the video based on other reviews that claim the workout is both challengin and inspiring. I sweat a lot yet hardly broke a sweat with this workout. Additionally the camera focuses on some the biggest looser contestants, who deserve high-fives for getting into better shape. However, they are all a far cry from the precise movement execution that I seek at my fitness level. I found that I had to turn away from the screen and only listen to the instructor (who is great)in order to maintain my focus and to have a good mind-body workout. I highly recommend David Kirsh's New York Body Plan workout -- it really kicks butt and emphases good form (w/o sounding annoying or repititious). Happy exercising.
