Convenient but not very challenging
on 30 January 2002
I have been using Beverley Callard's first video "Real Results" for quite a while now and I'm a big fan. I bought "Ultimate Results" as I often find it difficult finding time for the 60 minute "Real Results" workout and was excited about the idea of three separate 20 minute routines. Although these three shorter workouts do contain the same warm-up, exercise and cool-down sections as "Real Results", I was disappointed. I don't find 20 minutes is long enough to really get going and I'm left at the end thinking "so now what?" which is really frustrating. Many of the moves are re-cycled from "Real Results" but there are also many new ones and, in order to fit everything in to 20 minutes, Beverley has had to omit proper explanations of exactly how to do these exercises, which leaves me worrying that I may be in the wrong position and may end up hurting myself. Three separate short workouts was a good idea in theory, but I don't think it works in practice. However, I suppose that if you only have 20 minutes it's better than nothing. On a more positive note, I really like the music choices (on the whole) - there are some original artists in there, which is nice.
