This DVD is excellent. I bought it at 20 weeks as I was finding it hard to keep motivating myself to exercise alone. This is great as you can fit it around your life - if you feel tired, just do 1 section, if you fancy a really good workout do the whole 60mins. You don't need a huge space to do the exercises - just enough to take 3 steps forward and to the side. The only equipment you need is a low table (or sofa arm), a chair and a wall!
I've only tried the first antenatal DVD and am keeping the postnatal one for later. So far I'm very impressed! I'm quite fit and active and this gets your heart rate up and pumping! You feel like you've done something really good for you and your baby, knowing that the moves Erin suggests are safe and beneficial. It's really encouraging to see a heavily pregnant woman really going for it, so it spurs you on too! She's not at all patronising, and hits the right mix of encouragement and motivation, without you feeling like you're not doing enough. She even shows you how to make the moves harder or easier, depending on your fitness level, or as is so typical with pregnancy, how you happen to be feeling that day!
Before buying I read lots of positive reviews but I also dipped into the negatives too. Don't be put off by them - people say she goes fast, but you've only got to do the routine a few times and then you know what's coming next. There is also such a thing as a pause button ;) . The partner work outs are fun - your partner provides resistance (and you control how much) - there is nowhere where you have to hold his entire weight!!! The workout is quite demanding but you can easily tone it down to suit you. Go ahead and get it - it's also much better value to buy the 2 discs at once rather than separate ante and post natal packages! Hope it helps you in your pregnancy like it's helping me!
