This review is from: Yogalates for Weight Loss [DVD] (DVD)
I had high expectations with this DVD because of all the 5star ratings it had, and it has surpassed them by far!
Yesterday I tried another fitness DVD which was labelled for beginners and I couldn't even manage the first 30 minutes. With this one, not only did I get through the whole routine, but I felt so relaxed and ready for the day ahead it was unbelievable. Obviously I can't tell you if it has aided any weight loss yet but I will definately update in 1 or 2 months time and explain whether or not it has worked for me.
What I can tell you right now is that I ache in some extraordinary places. My thighs feel really well worked out and my waist feels fantastic.
The workout doesn't have any background music, which I think aids with the relaxation and breathing, and also, if you exersise first thing in the morning when the rest of your family is still asleep, it doesn't wake them up!
It's recommended that you take a couple of walks a week alongside the 3 times a week routine. This routine is so good however, that I'm considering doing it 5 times a week. If you are short for time, you can pick one workout over another, and work them alternate days, each routine varies from 15 mins to about 30ish.
I'm so pleased I'm buying some more yogalates DVDs.
(Oh and for those complaining about her voice/accent/pronounciation: if you are serious about losing weight and getting toned etc, what does it matter? Yes it can be a little annoying but I'm sure some people would find our accents annoying too? I find her calm and quiet voice to be very soothing myself).
EDIT: After four weeks I have lost two pounds in weight but the difference in my body is astounding. My legs, bum, back and arms have toned up so much! I can feel my stomach muscles are tighter I just cannot shift the fat from that area (because I am not on a diet). It also has greatly reduced the frequent pain I was getting in my hips and lower back. I'm so happy I bought this.
