Not easy, but effective!
on 10 June 2010
I personally found Vol 2 better - as other reviewers have mentioned, it's better thought-out & explained.
On the negative side: it's not always easy to follow, especially if you've never done ballet before, or are physically unco-ordinated! Prepare for some amusingly ungraceful falling around while you get used to it! It's also perhaps not for people who like more traditional aerobics-style workouts since the moves are very precise and repetitive.
Having said that, the dancers' bodies are amazing: inspiring enough in themselves for you to put that doughnut down immediately! Peter Martin's voice is like melted dark chocolate, and I have to say, the workout does indeed work if you stick with it; after just two weeks I had noticeably more toned abs, thighs & arms.
