Intense is based on the principle of High Intensity Training, which means that you‚ll be working out for a shorter amount of time at ‚ you guessed it ‚ a higher intensity. It‚s all about getting your heart rate up really high for short bursts, which is great for fitness, toning and fatburning!

I got this DVD for Christmas, but I wanted to wait until I'd given it a fair test to review it. I've been doing it 4 times a week for 4 weeks and I am very happy with the results.

I do the Cardio and Abs section together one day and then alternate to do the toning section the next time around and so on.

First things first, I always find it helpful to understand how long a workout is. It's not helpful to say a workout is 20 mins when actually it's closer to 40 by the time you've done the warm-up and cool down (which you must!).

Warm-up - 13mins
Intense cardio - 20
Intense toning - 27 mins
Intense Abs - 13mins
Cooldown - 7 mins (for the short version)

I'm comfortable with my weight around the 8-10 size, but have crept up to a 10-12 over the past year meaning a lot of my clothes don't fit. I should also say that I am one of those people that puts weight on from head to toe so it takes about a stone for me to notice a real difference because it's always so evenly distributed.

I never weigh myself because, let's face it, it's so depressing. Weight is really only numbers that you say to other people and I've never found that it reflects how I feel about myself. For me, feeling good is being able to wear the clothes I love with confidence so I chucked out the scales long ago.

With an event coming up I knew I wanted to get back into something nice and feel good. This DVD seemed like a good bet. A little over four weeks ago I could barely pull my size 10 jeans over my bum, let alone do them up, but I am happy to say that they're not only up and over, but there's a little bit of wiggle room too. That's about 4-5 inches lost from my bum and hips and I am feeling great.

Firstly I will say I love Davina's workout DVDs. I've owned them all over the years and look forward to the new instalment each year. I said last year that Ultimate Target would be hard to beat and although Intense is still a great workout and a fresh approach to exercise, Ultimate Target is still my favourite. (See edit below!)

This DVD is split into 5 sections, warm up, intense cardio box, intense toning, intense abs and cool down.

The idea of this DVD is to keep you at an intense level with your heart rate up for a period of time before having a rest period and then another intense level of exercise. I've never really been a fan of high impact exercise but this is managable for me and I think with practice I'll be able to keep up!

One of the great things about this DVD is that it is all quite self contained in terms of space, you don't need a massive space to do the workout. You will need a mat or towel, some water and a pair of weights(or bottles of water)

Warm Up:

Led by Jackie, A very good warm up, fun at the beginning and then harder than the previous dvds and definitely gets your heart rate up with the usual stretches afterwards. I love the stretches, if only to see Mark trying to balance yet again! His shimmy is also something you don't want to miss! :-) The warm up is harder I assume as the workout is also quite hard so it prepares you for that.

Intense Cardio Box:

Led by Jackie this is some of the usual boxing moves done on the previous dvds but much faster. Jackie prepares you before each section to tell you what the moves will be. There are also 2 minute breaks between each workout section, which might annoy some people who can keep going but for me I need that break.

I have all the Davina DVD's but this is the first time I have felt compelled to leave a review. If you have any of the previous DVD's then the moves will be familiar but not in a tired way. I really love the interval training and rest periods and can certainly feel it working (for up to two days after...). The warm up on this one is excellent and will have you sweating before you start - it is a perfect mix of rotations, stretches and cardio. I have to say that I prefer the cardio section on this DVD much more than on any of the others and if I hit it at full energy I am panting by the time the break arrives! The toning section I am careful on to ensure I have good form rather than building up the speed at the moment but it is great nevertheless.

I don't have the time to work out every day or to complete the entire DVD from beginning to end as I have two young children and I work full time. I have been completing the warm up/cardio/cool down and the warm up/tone/cool down on an exercise day, then 'rest' day basis. However, on the rest day I have still completed the warm up and cool down stretch (which is fantastic) to loosen up and prevent injury/aching. I have found that this is working well for me. I can't keep up with Davina and Mark on all the moves yet but can on many so that will give me something to work towards. The abs section I will build in over the next week or so.

I can definitely imagine that with healthy eating and regular exercise then the weight will come off and I will tone up. I will certainly update if that is the case. I think I will definitely be using this DVD without getting bored for a long time as I am the one responsible for ensuring I challenge myself if it starts to get easy and can do so by simply moving faster/adding more reps or using heavier weights.

Thanks Davina, Jackie and Mark for a great DVD - I highly recommend it! :-)
