Fit for all Seasons Fitness [DVD]
Fit for all Seasons Fitness [DVD]
Offered by Base
Price: £7.99

2.0 out of 5 stars not for me!, 14 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are 4 dvd's each one for a differnt season and each with a differnt set of exercise programmes.
The range of programmes was very good, including pilates,yoga, kickboxing, aerobics ect ect, but which each differnt programme there was a differnt instructor.
some of the instructor were ok, but some of them like a man called micha-bo were just sheer awfull!!! he didnt explain any of the moves and did them all far to quickly and on these particular ones the camera would keep going off into close ups of people so you couldnt actually see what the next moves where! and was set in a very 1990's style!
some aspects of the dvd were good but for me it was mostly bad!

5.0 out of 5 stars great!, 14 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am new to pilates and wanted a good dvd to do at home aswell as class.
I found the instructor to explain the exercises clearly so you could follow them easily. The setting and music were relaxing and her voice was NOT annoying and patronising like some other pilates dvd i have!!
The exercies were easy to follow and differnt levels of difficulty were also shown for each move so you could progress further after learning the basic ones.
For me the basic ones were more than enough and my tummy muscles ached like mad the next day! which to me made it feel like the exercies had actually worked!

5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant!, 14 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Yoga-Mad Half Toesox (Apparel)
These socks are a must for anyone doing yoga or pilates. They give excellent grip on the floor and as they have individual toes they help with spacing your toes which is needed for all thoose balance poses!
I ordered a size small and i am a shoe size 5 and they fir perfectly. Colour is true to picture.
Great seller, arrived very quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent, 25 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Davina Fit [DVD] (DVD)
I have recently bought many fitness dvds and this one has been the best, the moves are really easy to follow but work really well, just the warm ups were enough for me!

Also i found that davina is very motivating and made me giggle out loud a few times, a rarity for a fitness dvd! glad that i bought it!

10 Minute Solution [DVD]
10 Minute Solution [DVD]
Offered by Leisurezone
Price: £5.83

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent range of routines, 23 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 10 Minute Solution [DVD] (DVD)
I have many of the 10minutes solution dvds and this one is just as good as the rest!

There is a great mix of differnt styles, including ballet, pilates, yoga, bootcamp, kickboxing! i thought all the sections were very well done if you just want to do a little snippet of something and not a whole dvd on just one subject. I thought the ballet and yoga sections were the best and the combination of them all gives a very good workout.

2.0 out of 5 stars too complicated, 23 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i was very dissapointed with this dvd, it was far too complicated with the dance moves not being fully explained and not giving you time to actaully pick them up! so i would say that if you were a dancer then this dvd would be great but if you are just a ordinary type person without a dancing background then you will find it very difficult!

I didnt get very far with this dvd, i had lost my way and got muddled up half way through the warm up! a bad purchase!

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent for relaxation, 23 Jan. 2010
with over 4hours of relaxation it is excellent value for money!

The sounds which are recorded do sound like 'real life' sounds and arent computerized, each differnt meditation has sounds and light background music to suit whichever title it is, i found the meditation called Tropical Heaven to be the best one and being whisked off to a dessert island!

1.0 out of 5 stars NOT for the young!!, 23 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gentle T'ai Chi [DVD] (DVD)
after doing tai chi in a body balance class i thought i would like to do it at home.but i am very sorry that i bought this dvd as it is awfull!!!

It looks like it was made badly in the 80's with some old kitchen chairs, and some even older people doing the tai chi in the dvd! They were wearing some very off putting clothes of tightly tucked in shirts and very high waisted drawstring trousers!!

After seeing how old the people were doing this dvd and the clothes theywere wearing i only bothered to watch around 5minutes before i had to turn it off as it isnt very inspiring to a young 26year old!!

1.0 out of 5 stars misleading cover picture!, 21 Jan. 2010
This review is from: Anti-Stress (Audio CD)
I have bought a few of the body and soul cds and the calm and inviting pictures on the front cover certainly dont go any further than the cover.

I found that it was not relaxing at all with lots of high pitched noises and the music didnt seem to flow during the track and would keep irregualry changing!
