I simply love this one and I decided the reason why is the controlled movement. They made this specifically so a wide range of age groups could do the workout- so the aerobic portions are a speed that is great for young healthy marines and older women.
Don't kid yourself however. I was soaked after I was done with it this morning. You are just doing a bit slower and controlled step ups on a low bar interspersed with a bit of weight training. It is doable.
I admire the lead, Janie. I love the fact the cast has older women, one I believe is the creator of the firm Anna Benson. It looks like her. Tigersue and I also get a kick out of the oh so serious marine at the end of the first row. He just picks up heavier weights and follows right along with the rest.
This would probably be the one I would hand out as a Christmas present to someone I wasn't sure the type of exercise they like, but wanted a great dvd to work out with. I firmly believe you could use this one and a few good walks for most healthy people and stay in great shape.
You can still get copies of these older firm workouts here. Look past the age to the great result of just how you feel when you do them!
