4.0 out of 5 stars Mixed views! 7 April 2006
After having bought 2 very similar workout dvds I decided to have a change, & after reading that this routine is suitable for first-timers, or unfit people, I gave it a try.
I have mixed feelings about the workout as in some ways it was good for my needs, whilst also having some unachievable yoga-type moves that I had to forego!
Denise's down-to-earth attitude to the workout was encouraging & I will certainly attempt to do better next time, probably after having alternated this routine with my other 2. Although I didn't think at the time that the moves had helped me at all, I awoke the next day to find aches in places I didn't know I had anymore!
For anyone who's into yoga, & exercising without prancing about like chimpanzees, this is an ideal dvd to buy. However, if your thing is NOT to be so cool calm & collected, then give it a wide berth.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original Lotte Berk Method dvd 8 Feb 2011
On the plus side this dvd shows the Lotte Berk method the way that Ms. Berk (more or less) wanted the method to be done. The movements are brisk and firm and "triple slow motion" is no where to be found here.

The instructor is knowledgeable and to the point and the exercises are shown in an understandable way with an explanation of what it is that you are trying to do.

On the minus side...where can I start...Denise Welch balls up the whole thing by continually talking and making comments that border on the unnecessary and comes off as a very bad 'Carry on" actress....the coy looks, her ridiculous comments almost made me want to turn the dvd off through the first viewing. Needless to say when I use the dvd I now mute it. The dvd is also recorded outside and does not appear to have had the sound re-recorded in a studio and so there is the sound of the wind and the such which makes the whole dvd appear to be cheaply put together.

If you are a follower of this method in one of its recent incarnations such as 'the lotte berk method dvd (2003) or as one of the many other forms either the bar method, callanetics or fluidity then you are in for a rude awakening. But with that said I really enjoy working out with this dvd as it is sharp and to the point. It's just a real shame that Ms. Welch talks all the time!!!

I gave it a fair three stars but if asked would I recommend this dvd to someone who was interested in the method I would say get it but then mute the sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great work out dvd. 12 Dec 2009
This dvd is great. It doesn't involve jumping around & getting sweaty. They are gentle exercises that actually work. I could tell a change in my body shape after a short period of time. Definitely would recommend this dvd if you want to tone up & get an amazing figure!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 18 Mar 2011
By lynne
Denise Welch - You Can Do It! [DVD] Hmmmm. A good price, though I mute the sound. Denise Welsh talks about Gin & Tonics (great for anyone wanting to get sloshed whilst working out...LOL) but she does come across as not really trying and mumbles on alot, then there is the shot of where her hubby (Dennis healy) shows up, showing his beer belly. hahaha. Apart from that, a good workout if you ignore her and focus on the trainer :))))

5.0 out of 5 stars effective and fun 20 Jan 2010
Very cheap price for a brand new DVD, arrived fast. The setting, the teaching, everything is very nice. Different from Callanetics. I practice Lotte Berk to "cure" my back ache. This programm have had the supervision of Lotte Berk herself so, it is worth to buy and to try it.
