Fantastic book. Mostly easy recipes with not too many ingredients but lots of flavour! Very creative design, even appealing to my 2,5 years old daughter.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent!, 3 July 2013
Tasty, easy to make recipes that my family likes. Highly recommended, especially if you are an omnivore - vegetarians will have to improvise a bit.

5.0 out of 5 stars very good indeed!, 16 Dec. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great workout that you can mix and match to suit your stamina and schedule. Friendly and motivating trainers that are there not just for show - you're constantly reminded about keeping the correct form. Yes, Davina keeps pulling funny faces but it is nothing that should keep you from breaking some sweat. Her looks are a great motivator for me - with every DVD she brings out she looks better and better!

4.0 out of 5 stars very good, but be careful if you have bad knees, 17 Dec. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nice workout, inventive routines, this trio definitely has great chemistry - the only but: high energy in this case means more or less high impact. If you have bad knees, you'll have to come up with your own modification, as they are not always given. Otherwise, highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent!, 20 April 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very good, solid workout. The instructor is motivating without being annoying.

The workout consists of warm-up, 3 segments ( plyometrics-cardio ) and cool-down with tummy exercises. It is on intermediate level, but modifications for beginners are also shown.

4.0 out of 5 stars Difficult but fun!, 24 Jan. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Latinasize [DVD] [2006] (DVD)
Nice, energetic workout for someone with dancing experience. I loved it but I have to admit that I was a member of a dancing club when I was a student.

4 stars for being relatively short and for not always optimal camera angles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good toning workout, but won't bring your heartrate up.., 26 Jan. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ulrika: The Body Plan [DVD] (DVD)
I think it is a good toning workout, the exercises are done really slowly what makes you pay attention to form. The trainer is a bit military - style but you can quickly get used to it. She looks great and really inspiring.
I do not think, however, that you could achieve anything near the 3-stones weightloss of Ulrika by doing this workout alone. There is no aerobic exercise included, just the short warm-up.
One more thing. I am maybe not the thinnest person around, but my body mass index is in the normal range and I was shocked to see how Ulrika looks now. She is thin as a stick. She does not look healthy, especially standing close to her lean and muscular trainer.

4.0 out of 5 stars good effort, 6 Jan. 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I do not regret buying this DVD - the workouts are fun and easy to do ( I would say beginners-intermediate level ), Davina is very amicable and not too chatty.
What I did not like was:
1) awkward camera angles, especially during 'Punch' section
2) since there are three presenters, it is a shame that they did not think about presenting three distinct exercise levels - from beginner to advanced

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good workout for beginners / intermediate, 19 Jan. 2005
Very good effort by Joanna Hall. The workouts are easy to follow, possible modifications are clearly shown, the ladies in the background do not look super-skinny. Joanna has a pleasant voice and an encouraging attitude, and, what is even more important, makes sure that you get enough clues to perform the exercises in a safe way. I'll be definitely looking forward to her future offerings.
