Customers who bought the DVD report it as a "great workout for women who will actually move their bodies" and the ability to "get a pretty good workout without needing cardio equipment makes this workout an easy way to get a workout when pregnant."
On top of the big-DVD, there's also a small pamphlet, a brochure and a web site.
The workout DVD is about 90 minutes long, with 10 minutes of an instructional video before you start exercising. Each section of the workout has its own video.
There are three ways to do the workout.
Start with the pre-workout video: lie down on your back and do lunges with your knees bent, the chest right on the floor and your knees pointing out to the sides to open your hips then do leprechaun squats with toes pointed out to the sides, one leg at a time.
Performed in this way, you only hold your body up, the weight of it going right down into the floor of your heels.
Next, choose one leg, hold the ankle with your other hand and do squats like this, squats and step ups with the same leg. Forward and backward lunge with alternate legs.
Next, do deep calf raises on the spot, lying on your back on the floor, with both heels on the floor, extending your legs, then point your toes so you can really get a good stretch.
Finally, there's leg lifts with holding a dumbbell in each hand, or another form of periodical leg lifts.
The general floor work covers:
- Low impact, good for your joints and regular exercise
- Low on impact impact and easy to do
- Focusing on a bad lower-body area with the machine, the program is easy to adjust
- Addition of stretching exercises for lower body
- Use of two smaller dumbbells or hands total and there's plenty of room to move and stretch
- Lacks cardio options
- Doesn't offer nutrition and is not very intense in the cardio department
- Needs to be combined with another workout
- Largely for women who want a little more cardio and might find the workout itself a bit too easy
Customers also like the warm up; the fact you can use your own music; that you can purchase the actual DVD as a single workout or get the whole DVD as a boxed set; and the padding on the equipment.
