I've never reviewed any of the hundreds of items I have bought on Amazon but I wanted to say if you are looking at buying a DVD to work out to then look no further. This is so worth while. I was not into exercise at all and after a futile attempt at jogging I thought I would never exercise. I so desperately wanted to lose weight and if that meant getting fit too, so much the better. I've lost two stone in six months and it is largely thanks to working out with Davina, Jackie and Mark. I do their DVDs about four times a week and on the other days I try and get a walk in. Like Davina advises I have tried to eat more sensibly but lets be honest I'm never going to diet. After a while you will feel better and before long other people will start commeting on the fact that you look better. I should be on commission for the amount of people I have recommended the previous DVDs to and I'm delighted to do it. We love these guys in Ireland!

The exercises are clear and easy to follow and most importantly for me who is not a gym bunnyy they are explained really well with the team advising you on common mistakes, which I was making in the beginning. I also love Davina's face when the workout gets tough and you think you can't go on, she is going through exactly the same thing. I probably laugh more than I should working out. Jackie is a brilliant teacher and is so encouraging while Mark makes you feel like you have climbed Everest.

This one is broken into easy to manage workout sessions with two half hour ones at the start and a few shorter ones if you're low on time. They know what parts we want to tone - bingo wings, summer shoulders, abs etc. The music is a good match to the exercise and isn't that annoying boom boom boom stuff you usually get and it makes you keep going.

I've yet to see a review of this item from the point of view of someone as fat and unfit as me, so if you're very large and want to know how difficult these workouts are, hopefully you will find this review useful.

I'm 42 years old, 5'3" tall, and weighed (at start of using this DVD, a week and a half ago) 15st 11lb. Like I said, I'm very fat :) Add to that, until the day I started using this DVD, I had been a 20-a-day smoker for 30 years. I hope this builds an accurate picture for you of just how unfit I am! And I'm sure I'm not the only woman out there with such serious health, weight and fitness problems who is determined to do something about it, so that's the point of this review :)

So, here's how this DVD is for me...

As expected, it's bloody hard work. I'm knackered by the end of the warm-up section. Being so fat and unfit, trying to bend my limbs into the positions expected of me is like trying to bend cooked sausages in half without splitting them. I physically cannot do some of the moves in the DVD; for example, in the warm ups, there's this move where you stand on one leg and hold your other foot behind you, bent up as if you're kneeling, to stretch your thigh. I can't do this because my legs are too fat and because I'm so stiff and unfit, I physically cannot reach my foot to hold it in place. So I have to compromise by just standing on one leg and not attempting to hold my foot. Probably doesn't do any good but what can I do if I physically can't reach my foot? lol :D

The fat burning section is the only one I've attempted so far (apart from warm up and cool down), because obviously at my size burning fat is my prime objective.

I was looking forward to this DVD coming out for a long time and it did not disappoint. Davina, as always, brings her bubbly and funny character to the forefront of the DVD, which makes it enjoyable to do. Mark and Jackie's expertise and explanations are excellent, well thought out and put across well. All three have good chemistry, especially in this DVD.

The DVD is divided up as follows:

The warm up, takes a little under 10 minutes to do. There are some new moves as well as regular ones, which warms you up gradually, with stretches added to really get you ready for the workouts to follow.

The first workout: Fabulous Fat Burner is 27 minutes long. Some of the exercises are new to Davina's DVD like the Latin dance moves, but there are other moves from other DVD's too and so you never lose your footing or get confused from doing the routine from the start. It is well thought out and gives you good fat burning exercises; you certainly feel you are getting a good workout, which is well paced and very enjoyable to do. You know you are burning fat whilst doing this and it is fun, which makes the time go really quickly.

The second workout: Brilliant Boot Camp is 27 minutes long. You use weights with this section to sculpt your upper body and squats with other related exercises to help with the lower body. There are intervals of fat burning throughout the workout, which are individual and get you puffing healthily. I felt invigorated after doing this section. You really feel your whole body has benefited.

Target Abs is 13.5 minutes long. My goodness, these do work. My only criticism was the moves were all advance and they did not show beginner options, although once or twice they verbally instructed what you could do as a beginner.
