4.0 out of 5 stars Good 'every day' workout 10 Mar 2004
By A Customer
This is great workout for anyone looking to improve their overall fitness level and is especially good for toning arms, legs and butts. The aerobic sections are fun, varied and not too exhausting but the real benefit of this workout is in the toning sections. After a few weeks of regular use you really will see the difference in your general muscle tone, with a firmer bum, less flabby arms and a firmer, flatter stomach.
Karen Voight’s instruction is clear and encouraging. She explains what you’re doing and why without shouting or any of that ‘come on, you can do it’ motivational stuff that I personally find really irritating after a while. Elle looks great and is full of enthusiasm, although her little comments do get a bit tiresome after a while. You will need a bit of room to do this in, especially some of the aerobic sections, and I recommend you use hand weights (I find 3lbs is about right) after the first few times as they really help to tone up your arms fast.
Although this isn’t a hard working, high impact workout (try Nell McAndrew’s Maximum Impact if you’re looking for something more challenging), overall it is a good ‘every day’ workout (I use it alternative days with Kate’s Cardio Combat) that will give you better body definition and is fun to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still the best workout DVD around! 5 Feb 2007
Verified Purchase
I bought this on VHS about four years ago and it still the best workout DVD I've ever used! I've been through them all - Cindy Crawford, Aerobics Oz Style, Tae Bo, pilates, yoga, salsa... the list is endless, but Elle is the one I go back to every time.

I'm in pretty good shape,but this is challenging enough to get my heart rate right up - overall at about 75% of maximum, (which is an ideal aerobic rate, especially is you're looking to shift that extra weight!) but the final cardio section takes me up to 95%. If however you're not used to working out you can easily hold back on the cardio sessions and work at your own level - just make your movements smaller and you'll find it perfectly easy. The third (last) cardio session is the hardest - they throw a few jumps in here, but if you cut out the jumps and keep it low-impact you'll be fine.

The conditioning exercises are effective and the instruction is very clear, which avoids risk of injury. You need some small weights for the conditioning sessions, and you can get a pair of those for about 5 in Argos/Amazon.

This is the only DVD apart from Billy Blanks' Tae Bo that works me hard enough to make it a substitute for going to the gym. The Tae Bo DVDs are HARDCORE and I just can't face them most of the time, so I needed something a notch below that!

I can't recommend this enough. WHATEVER your fitness level, you will get a good workout.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good all-round workout that really works!!!!! 1 Aug 2004
This workout dvd is the best I have tried. It combines 3 aerobic sections with 3 strengthening and toning sections. Each section is alternated so that you don't get bored (or too tired), and they are all fun to do - not at all repetitive. It targets all areas of your body and spends just enough time on each one.
The sections are as follows:
1)Warm Up
2)Aerobics 1
3)Legs and Butt
4)Aerobics 2
5)Upper Body
6)Aerobics 3
7)Abs and Back
8)Cool Down
I always feel that I get a good workout, and I am quite fit, but I really think that it is suitable for people of all levels of fitness. It is really easy to follow and the best thing about this workout that it only takes 60 minutes to do from beginning to end which means that you can easily fit it into your daily routine (no excuses!).
I lost over a stone in 3 months by doing this workout 3-4 times a week (and eating healthily). I am now a size 10 and I am the most toned I have ever been (I actually have muscle definition!).
I really would not hesitate to recommend this workout to anyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars I love it...and I hate working out 29 Aug 2004
By A Customer
I hate workout videos. Actually, I hate working out. And dieting. And tall, slim, muscular fitness Nazis in Lycra, barking at me through the tv screen.
But...I also hate not fitting into my clothes, getting breathless walking to the car and the fact that my naked arse looks like a bath sponge. So, in a moment of madness, I bought this dvd. Given my usual level of persistence and determination, I fully expected that I would use it once or twice, then go back to doing something more instantly gratifying. Like eating some doughnuts and having a cigarette.
However...I now find myself writing a positive review for this dvd. It is five weeks since I bought it, and in that time I have managed to stick with it, using it to start my day, at least four days a week.
The programme alternates short sessions of aerobics with body-toning sessions, using light weights. It's simple enough for a beginner, but does give you a serious workout. In just 5 weeks, my clothes fit better and my body is fitter and more toned - I can even take my jeans off without undoing them!
The commentary from the instructor is kept simple and factual...not too much of that patronising "you can do it!" stuff that tends to pall after a few viewings. Elle is cute and has a great body, although I have to snort with laughter at one or two of her interjections (e.g. during one of the bum-toning sessions, she mentions that this is "what I need to do most!" Yeah, sure, Elle-baby...and I'm a super-model!) The stretching/unwinding session at the end of the programme incorporates some yoga moves, and really makes you feel good after the exertion.
I recommend this dvd for anyone who is NOT a fitness fanatic, but is maybe looking to shed a few inches and feel better about their body. It's a beginner-friendly, do-able work-out video, that doesn't get boring after a couple of viewings. Enjoy.
