5.0 out of 5 stars Shape that body!, 12 Jun. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ultimate New York Body Plan [DVD] (DVD)
I wanted to do a more advance level of hips bums and thighs that my gym could offer within the comfort of my home. I also wanted something which I can do in front of the telly without hitting the lamp and table. This is it and more! I stumbled across through amazon (as you do with most things) and pretty much got what I wanted.

The pros of the DVD:
i) he talks to you and instruct you what to do
ii) it's not ultra-speed lightning so you can actually follow
iii) there's a gradual build up - so if you like me, a bit slow - then you can gradually build it up doing the fitness test and pre-core programme
iv) you can feel the muscle working and also your heart pumping which delivers both cardio-tone which are essential for fat burning and body sculpting
v)there are plenty of exercises and different ones - very sensible and no nonsensical ones like some other fitness DVD
vi)the level of challenge varies but for someone like me who has low to moderate level of fitness after doing a week of his DVD I can actually do some push up (Hurrah!) Therefore, if persevere you can actually get there albeit slow.

the cons of the DVD:
i) if you are super unfit it will demotivate you almost immediately
ii) if you have knee problems like me - david uses quite a bit of lunge, some of the exercises may cause more damage. However, you can opt not to do those lunges or modify the exercises to your ability.
iii) stability ball - just make sure you get used to them first before attempting to do some of the exercises. Visits to A&E can be avoided if you practice using them beforehand

That's it. So far I manage to convert two other friends to get this DVD. Try it. Well worth it!

PS Don't forget to get a medicine ball (mine is 2kg), a stability ball (mine is 65 cm and I am 165cm) and a pair of light handweights (mine is 1.5 kgs)
