I've been intrigued by the `marmite nature' of the reviews for this product - it's either loved or hated. And I think I may have worked out why... I'm a real fan of exercise DVDs. I have a wide range and use them four to six times a week. I'd heard about the Tracy Anderson Method and it seemed to be appealing - I love dancing and was keen to try something a little more challenging.

The workout consists of a short warm up, eight dances of approximately five minutes each, but no specific cool down. Furthermore there are two versions of the workout on the DVD, one where Tracy faces you and one where she has her back to you. There is also a section where Tracy breaks down the dances as during the actual workout the dances are done without Tracy talking and you are required to simply repeat the sequence of moves as the song plays (eight songs, eight routines).

I had my eye on the DVD for a while, but was put off from getting it sooner by the negative reviews complaining that it is just too hard. Eventually I caved...

Day 1... My first endeavour... I start with the breakdown section for dance number 1. All seems fine until I try it at full tempo. It wasn't easy to say the least... Still, I am determined. So on Day 2 I try Dance 1 again and have a go at Dance 2. I can't get that one at all. I give up in disgust, vowing never to be sucked in again. However... about a week later it's still bugging me that the DVD got the better of me, so I decide to give it another go. But I change my approach. I decide to just throw myself in and do the breakdown, followed by the uptempo version in the workout itself (The version where Tracy has her back to you). Within two weeks I've mastered the first four dances, which in themselves offer quite a workout.

Format: DVD
To start off, I will say I am a complete gym and workout junkie! I have been exercising since I was 19 and I am now 35, it is a part of my life, like eating, sleeping and working. I am lucky in the sense that I enjoy it. But as with everyone, I get bored with routines and repetition.

I stumbled across Tracy Anderson in my usual quest of trawling the internet trying to find a new and effective way of working out. Initially I was not sold on the idea of working the accessory muscles as opposed to working the major muscle groups as this is what we are taught to focus on in the majority of workout routines etc but being of the mesomorph body type (athletic and potentially bulky) I was drawn to the concept of a leaner more feminie form. It was for this reason that I purchased the cardio workout followed by the mat workout.

I will not try to fool anyone in saying that the cardio dvd is easy as initially it was very difficult. It was more than incredibly hard and frustrating to learn. I must have spent 3 hours solid on a saturday trying to learn the first 3 combinations...boy was it hard, but with perseverance I managed it. For me, I did the routine with Tracys back to me and the option of doing this was such a benefit and refreshing change to most dvds. Now, the next day I was as sore as you could be but after a few days rest I worked my way through the rest of the dvd and now I can manage the dvd from beginning to end (trust me, when you get there it is so satisfying, so please as hard as it is, stick with it!)

I wear a heart rate monitor for all my exercise and I burnt enough calories to happily compare with two back to back half spin classes. Great!!

I agree with all the reviews that criticize Tracy's instructional technique, but this is definitely a workout that yields results--although it requires persistence and patience. But when have quick fixes ever produced long-lasting results?

The workouts I use are Cindy Crawford's and Elle McPherson's routines; all brilliant, but only Elle's contains some cardio work, and I wanted to add something on that would really make me feel I've exercised. I cannot bear the usual military-style cardio workouts, with jumping jack after jumping jack, grapevine after grapevine, punching the air shouting one! two! three! four! And I really don't like my DVD instructors yelling at me, pretending that they're my personal trainer.

When I first got this workout, I thought: I'm never going to be able to do this. I am NOT a dancer and have never taken dance classes. The method I used was to simply follow one instructional at a time after completing a workout, moving on to the next instructional after mastering the last one. I knew that I would lose heart if I just tried to learn the whole thing in one go. The feeling that comes when each routine finally clicks into place is amazing. I have now mastered the first 6 routines (out of 8). I have been doing the first 4 routines at the end of my workout to give myself a really good 20 to 30 minute cardio session. Once I've mastered the last two routines, I intend to rotate them as two 20 to 30 minute cardio sessions.

Like the previous reviewer, I recommend following the instructional segments from behind as it's far less confusing.
