Product Description

Fitness trainer Dee Thresher puts Charlie Brooks through her paces in this keep-fit guide. Starting with a warm-up, the guide goes on to demonstrate moves based around disco, combat, high intensity, and a Pilates cool down.

From Amazon.co.uk

One of the most acclaimed celebrity fitness DVDs of recent times, Charlie Brooks’ Before And After Workout finds fitness trainer Dee Thresher putting the former soap star through her paces with a series of five ten minute workouts.

Brooks herself claims to have lost a couple of stone using the routines on the disc already, and it’s easy to believe why. And rather than, as some in the genre choose to do, focusing heavily on the celebrity, this fitness discs puts its firm emphasis on the workout routines. They’re explained clearly, are straightforward to follow, and there’s enough variety to ensure you don’t get bored.

The routines are of varying difficulty, and unless you’re already fighting fit, it’s feasible that you’ll have some trouble with them in the early days. But then that’s the point. And because none of the workouts outstay their welcome, there’s little reason not to stay motivated. Sure, you’ll end up working hard, but there’s nothing on this disc that outstays its welcome.

It’s surprising perhaps to find a fitness DVD that has earned such acclaim, but having followed Charlie Brooks’ Before And After Workout through, the plaudits are well deserved. So if you’ve ever been frustrated by a celebrity workout disc that’s proven to be more about the former than the latter, then this will be a very welcome treat.--Ann Foster

Format: DVD
I have actually owned a copy of this dvd for nearly a year yet it's not until now that i've actually decided to put it to use.Those christmas pounds got the better of me! Having bought a large amount of workout dvd's in the past i expected this one to be just like the the rest...dull,boring and incredibly repetitive.How wrong was i?!

For a start Charlie Brooks has actually undergone a dramatic transformation unlike many of the other celebs who start slim and stay slim.You can see her transformation on the cover of the dvd though its not until you actually watch it that you realise just how much she has changed.She looks incredible!It definitly gives you some much needed early inspiration to try out these routines.

As many other reviewers have already said this workout is split into 5 different sections.There is a warmup first followed by disco,Combat,Hi-Intensity and finally a Pilates Cool-Down.Each section works your body in a different variety of ways and last roughly 10 minutes each.They are all fun to do so the time flies by.At first you will probably find it difficult to pick up the some of the moves.I know i did! However by the 3rd or 4th time you should be able to do them with ease.Both the fitness trainer (Dee Thresher) and Charlie Brooks are very likeable throughout the sessions.There is no tedious and pointless chit chat going on between the pair and when they do talk it is informative and motivating.

I'm sure the part most of you would like to know now is whether or not this workout actually works.Well i have been doing it 3 times a week for just a fortnight and have already lost 5lbs.I have also lost an inch of my waist as well as lower measurements on my hips and thighs etc.I am ecstatic!

Format: DVD
I bought this dvd as looking at what charlie looked like to what she does after she has apparently stuck to these 5 workouts was brilliant, I just hope that it is true and that her gorgeous stomach muscle definition on the front of that DVD case is not air brushed. Watching the dvd for the first time you can see however what she looked like before, and how she progressed to look that incredible. Ofcourse she has a gorgeous spray on tan and has had her har dyed which helps. The dvd is really good, each section only lasts ten mins so you don't get too bored, the moves can be hard at first but you do get the hang of them. I sweat like a beast each time I do, but that just means that it is working. It definatly gives you a good workout and you feel muscles the next day ache that you didn't know you had. Would highly reccomend, Charlie suggests that you do it atleast 2/3 times a week, I would recomend it be done every other day, the whole thing and pick out different sections to do the other days, but do pilates section everyday, to get those stomach muscles dominant!!! x

I bought this DVD because I had heard it was good and I needed to do some exercise as I was not getting my sorry butt to the gym often enough. I have never done an exercise video at home either so it was a whole new world for me.
The workout, when you first do it, seems complicated. However, after a couple of times you get the knack of the footwork and I found I really enjoyed it. I've been doing this workout 3 times a week and am on week 5 now. My body shape has definitely changed. I went into Next yesterday and came out beaming as I bought a size 12 skirt! I was a larger 14 5 weeks ago. So the results happen quickly.
The high intensity workout is tiring and I definitely have a sweat on when I've finished that. My favourite sections are Combat and Pilates (which you will feel believe me). It's nice having the different sections, as this keeps the whole workout interesting.
Overall this is a great workout video and I would highly recommend it.

I bought this a couple of weeks ago having read various reviews in magazines etc. I have never done an exercise dvd before so was a bit unsure what to expect but this was excellent. I got a bit muddled the first time with what I was supposed to be doing with my feet but Dee Thresher (trainer) takes you through each one and by the second time I did the dvd I found I was able to follow it okay.
I like the fact it is split into 5 sections. This helps me stay motivated and also helps if I have to leave out a section due to time constraints. I find the penultimate section tough going but know that after that comes the pilates section which is a lot easier (although it does work the tummy hard!)
I have been following this about 4 times a week for the last couple of weeks, as well as trying to eat more healthily, and have already lost almost 3 inches around my waist! I feel a lot better and fitter too so am hoping that this will continue.
I have no idea how experienced fitness dvd people will find it but I can't recommend this highly enough. As long as you are prepared to take one or two sessions to get to grips with the routines then I am sure most other novices will love this dvd as much as I do.

I have to admit it - I wasn't expecting much from this DVD. However I was more than pleasantly surprised.
The intro is very inspiring as it shows her weighing in before the exercise programme and then once she had lost two stone. She looks brilliant and I felt very encouraged by not only this but Charlie's attitude which was unpretentious and very normal. The fitness expert in the video is not at all irritating which makes it easier to keep the DVD up.
The warm up is of quite a high intensity so it may be recommended to do a few stretches first. If you are someone who is not used to exercising then the warm-up would be enough of a workout for a while.
The second section is dance. This is fairly similar to the warm-up but stil manages to be quite good fun.
My favourite section is combat because I really feel like it gives me a good workout but it's not impossible to complete. It incorporates kickboxing and aerobics and really helped me to tone my arms up.
I found the high intensity quite difficult to manage and impossible without a short break in the middle, but I think that's great because it sets more of a challenge. This section probably shouldn't be attempted until you have achieved a reasonable level if fitness.
Lastly there is a pilates/cool down which you can really feel working your core muscles. Again, I often complete additional stretches after this to ensure my muscles don't ache too much the next day.
Overall, I think this DVD is worth the rather high price as it is definitely more of a long-term investment than a throw-away DVD.
