I had really high hopes for this DVD but unfortunately I am a tad disappointed.
I absolutely loved the Hannah Waterman DVD and because of it, I am quitting the gym - it seriously works me as hard as a circuit training class. I then spent the last few months of last year trying to find another DVD as hard as Hannah's to rotate with once my membership runs out this February. I tried sooooo many - The Firm, Davina, Nell, Jillian Michaels... but none seemed to work me as hard or were as enjoyable as Hannah's.
So when I saw that Clare's DVD was exactly the same format, with even the same trainer, I was sooo looking forward to it. However, to me it just doesn't seem to hit the spot. The first section, which includes the warm up, isn't as tough as the first cardio in Hannah's. The second section just seems soooo repetitive - the 8/4/2 high kicks are a killer but you repeat them so many times you just want to kick the telly. The third section (toning) didn't seem as good as Hannah's either, and some moves just seemed made up on the spot (the Clare Climber anyone?).
To me it feels that all the best moves were used in Hannah's so they were scraping the barrel a bit for content here.
I also bought Nadia Sawalha's as the same time as this, and I actually think that is great, in a more 'dancy' way, and I think that will be a firm favourite.
This is just my opinion and other people may love this DVD, but I have been left disappointed after looking forward to it so much. I would definitly recommend Hannah's over this for people looking to kick start their New Year fitness regime.
