Superb for weight loss!
on 20 December 2008
In the past year I've bought several fitness dvds, fronted by celebrities, all of which were flat, lacking motivation, and which ended up being sold on by me. I recently bought this Rosemary Conley dvd, and find it enjoyable, motivating, and very effective - the weight is already starting to come off. So why is this dvd better than the ones I tried before? Why do I recommend you buy this, and ignore all the celebrity fitness dvds out there?
Celebrity fitness dvds feature a well known person working out next to a qualified instructor, with the celebrity making random noises and comments to remind you that they are there and to justify their presence when the instructor alone would suffice. Ms Conley, on the other hand, IS the qualifed instructor, and knows what she's doing.
Conley's routines are designed for everybody, from the already fit to the not very fit (curretly my category but not for long). There are no glib or inane comments from Conley, she just talks you through the routines and keeps you motivated. Conley keeps her routines simple and effective, but they're never boring. Unlike many other dvds, there are no complicated steps which make all but choreographers give up in frustration.
The routines on each of the three dvds are challenging and fun, routines to enjoy and look forward to doing again and again. The real beauty of this box set is that you can tailor a workout to your own fitness level. The 'Five Day Fat Burner' can be broken down into ten minute segments to make a workout of a duration that suits you. 'Fat Attack' consists of three, 20 minute sections, and 'Ultimate Whole Body Workout' can be broken down into sections of 35 minutes and 20 minutes. Each of the three workouts can, of course, be done in their entirety, to give a more challenging workout. In addition to this, Conley pitches the workouts at three levels; beginner, intermediate, and very fit, so you can chose to follow Conley or either of two of her team members, depending on your fitness.
At the end of each of the three dvds, Conley shows you before and after pictures of the people you have seen working out with her in the routines. I recommend taking a look at these end sections first, because they show just how effective the workout really is.
Over the past year, I've wasted money on fitness dvds featuring various celebrities, and worse still, wasted time I could have spent doing these workouts. I'm glad I finally bought this one though, and I recommend anybody wanting to get fit, and lose either a little or a lot of weight, to buy this pack, it has everything you need to acheive your goal. It's also fantastic value with three workout dvds included.
