Hilarious...But she's not messing about!
on 27 October 2015
So, I had the classic dilemma - I wanted to get fitter and lose weight, but gyms are my idea of hell, and I almost felt that I needed to drop a couple of dress sizes before I could step foot in an exercise class...But I love Miranda, so I thought I'd give this a go (it doesn't come with maracas, just so you know). It is brilliant! The comedy sketches in between each section are just what you'd expect from Miranda (I tend to skip these when I'm doing the workout, but they're worth a watch before or after), and her commentary throughout each workout is fantastic - she says exactly what you're thinking, and makes you feel like a normal person for being red, sweaty and out of breath! And trust me, you will be - this is a bona fide exercise DVD, which really does get your pulse racing and your muscles working! There are different levels of intensity, so you can push yourself as hard as you want - I'm starting with the low intensity (following what Miranda does), and I'm already seeing and feeling the benefit! The truly beautiful thing about this DVD is that afterwards, you forget the sweat and the ache and the effort, and you just remember smiling and waving maracas around to some epic tunes (seriously, the soundtrack is immense!), which is why I am motivated to keep doing this DVD regularly (it all comes flooding back to me once about I'm 10 minutes in, but by then I've started!). I seriously can't recommend Maracattack highly enough - if you're thinking about it, then go for it!
