A cut above,
This review is from: Davina - High Energy Five [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this DVD about 2 months ago, having purchased various other fitness DVDs by other celebrities in the past. This is by far the best fitnes DVD I have ever tried.
The warm up is brilliant, really gets you warmed up and ready to go. It's about 10 minutes long.
the aerobics section is very hard going, although you really do reap the benefits with perseverance.
the legs section is one of my favourite sections to do, I saw results with regular use in about 3 weeks.
the pump section focuses on the arms and upper body, and after using this DVD 4 times a week for a month I feel more toned and firm in the upper body.
the abdominals section is my least favourite section to do, partly because it's so hard going! It really does get results though, so it's worth getting it done!
the boxing section is my favourite. I was a little apprehensive about this section as I'd never done any boxercise before, but I thoroughly enjoy it. The routine takes a few sessions to get used to, I was punching with the wrong arm a few times! It really gets your heart rate up and I feel energised and like I've had a really good workout after. I cannot recommend this section highly enough!
the cool down does what it says on the tin, stretches the muscles and is a very relaxing end to a tough, but worthwhile workout.
As the sections are split into 20 minute slots, I found it great to be able to choose the two sections I wanted to do each day. The music is really good, and the 'just music' option is great when you are familiar with the routines.
I really cannot recommend this DVD highly enough. I've tried various other DVDs including Jordan and Natalie Cassidy, but they are nothing on this DVD. It really is brilliant! After 6 weeks of regular use (2 sections back to back 3 or 4 times a week) I feel toned, healthy and fit. This is definitely the DVD to buy if you are looking to change the way you feel about your body and want to tone up for summer.
