I agree with the previous reviewers, a nice addition to my DVD cardio library. I did not purchase to lose weight, but use this DVD as part of my maintenance program. So my goals may differ from others. I can see that after awhile of repetitive use, I would need to run the cardio section twice in order to continue to receive the benefits.
Cardio Section: Pros: got my heart rate up, uses interval training method - heart rate up/down, back up/down, nice change from other my other DVD's (Leslie Sansone, Kathy Smith, Chris Freytag, etc),there are times when I only have 20min - 30min for a workout, rather than skip a day, incorporates light weights (3 - 5). I do have my strength training days where I use heavier weights, so I wont ever go heavy using this DVD, AB section much different from my other DVD's, which includes side planks and the use of a weight.
Cardio Section Cons: I must have missed the warm-up...seems like we started hopping on one foot 2 mins after the DVD started! I do wish the ab section was longer than 6mins. Horrible music...no beat, but it definitely stays in the background and of course, no pre-queuing of moves from Denise...just change when she changes LOL! :-)
