3.0 out of 5 stars Slight improvement from Super Fit, 24 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Davina - Body Buff [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD is better structured but still a bit weird with what the two major sections in Cardio and Box.
After the warm up, you're suppose to do the Cardio or Box (or both) and then choose more specific areas to work out on if you wish.
However, both the Boxing and Cardio are actually only 20 minutes and NOT 30 minutes. Instead, they insert a 5 minute abs section at the end which is a bit odd really because there is another abs section on its own in the DVD. But I guess it's handy if you want to tone your abs more and not too bothered about the Cardio part.

A good thing about this DVD is that it allows you to mix and match workouts to help tone and keep your heart rate at the same time.

The workout themselves are not that challenging for me, this is aimed at beginner and intermediate levels of fitness - I workout 3 times a week for 40 minutes and I did not break a sweat doing this DVD. So this wasn't for me! Most of the time I felt like I was just waving my arms and legs around. At some parts, I felt a bit out of breath but they let catch your breath back pretty quickly.

I am a size 12/14 and trying to trim down to a 10 but only the Jillian Michaels DVD's are working at the moment. My favourite Davina DVD is still her very first one Power of 3 which even today, still gets me into a sweat!

Would recommend for those new to working out at home and focusing on toning rather than building up strength or fat loss. A basic level of fitness is all you need. Some of the moves are a little complicated so some coordination is a must!

You sound a very fit person, however I would just like to comment about a couple of things you've mentioned. Firstly not all of the sections are 20 mins, the cardio and boxing are for 30 mins each, with the warm up and cool down added this should be about a 45 mins workout. Davina mentions on the DVD that to get the best results we should aim to work out NO LESS THAN 3 times a week for between 45 - 60 mins at a time.

Obviously the Jillian Michaels works for you - and that's great, but I just wanted to make sure that other people are aware of these points before making a decision on whether this DVD might work for them.
