Great light workout
on 17 March 2004
I bought this as I thought it would be a fun way to exercise, and I was right - it IS fun. Dolphina is beautiful, and the different surroundings that she shows the exercises in are gorgeous.
About my fitness/dance level: I'm about 25 kilos overweight, but dance (line-dance and square-dance) regularly (4 times a week), so I'm in fairly good shape.
The first time I did this DVD, I thought it was a rather light workout, with some rather difficult movements. Now, when I've done it 4 times, and learnt the movements a bit better, the workout is also harder, because I can put more energy into it. Especially the shimmy is hard work, but when Dolphina does it, it looks so easy and effortless. It makes me hope that I can do it as well once I've done this workout for a year or two...
I've also found this workout (especially the warm-up) to be great for relieving shoulder and neck pain, from many long hours in front of the computer. I think it is very gentle on the knees, but puts quite a bit of strain on the hips, so be careful if you have problems with your hips.
All in all, I really enjoy this DVD, and it really gives me inspiration to do it again.
