5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD, Davina gets it right year after year, 17 Dec 2011
This review is from: Davina - Ultimate Target (New for 2012) [DVD] (DVD)
I was looking forward to this DVD coming out for a long time and it did not disappoint. Davina, as always, brings her bubbly and funny character to the forefront of the DVD, which makes it enjoyable to do. Mark and Jackie's expertise and explanations are excellent, well thought out and put across well. All three have good chemistry, especially in this DVD.

The DVD is divided up as follows:

The warm up, takes a little under 10 minutes to do. There are some new moves as well as regular ones, which warms you up gradually, with stretches added to really get you ready for the workouts to follow.

The first workout: Fabulous Fat Burner is 27 minutes long. Some of the exercises are new to Davina's DVD like the Latin dance moves, but there are other moves from other DVD's too and so you never lose your footing or get confused from doing the routine from the start. It is well thought out and gives you good fat burning exercises; you certainly feel you are getting a good workout, which is well paced and very enjoyable to do. You know you are burning fat whilst doing this and it is fun, which makes the time go really quickly.

The second workout: Brilliant Boot Camp is 27 minutes long. You use weights with this section to sculpt your upper body and squats with other related exercises to help with the lower body. There are intervals of fat burning throughout the workout, which are individual and get you puffing healthily. I felt invigorated after doing this section. You really feel your whole body has benefited.

Target Abs is 13.5 minutes long. My goodness, these do work. My only criticism was the moves were all advance and they did not show beginner options, although once or twice they verbally instructed what you could do as a beginner. Also, those with knee problems may want to skip some of the core exercises, because they will put strain on your knees. Most of the exercises were enjoyable to do.

The Target Workouts are broken into three sections: Bingo Wings - 5 minutes duration, Summer Shoulders - 3.5 minutes duration and Bikini Burn - 7 minutes duration. These were great to do and worked out superbly. I could feel the exercises working my body in the way Davina and Mark described. I did them altogether (which takes a total 13.5 minutes) along with the warm up and cool down (adding 15 minutes) and found this was a good around routine in itself (28.5 minutes in total).

The Stretch and cool down section was broken down into two sections. The first 5 minutes was normal and basic stretches, which cooled you down really well. As with last years DVD, you could stop after the first 5 minutes or continue with just Davina and Mark which took a further 15 minutes (and so if you are restricted by time you may need to give the second half a miss) the second part was some yoga based moves at first followed by normal stretching at the end. Again if you have knee problems you may need to avoid some (but not all) of the exercises in this section.

The Bonus section of the school run was fun and interesting.

Overall, I loved this DVD and will be looking forward to working out to it throughout 2012. I highly recommend you add this to your collection.

Thank you so much for taking the time in commenting on my review. Please do keep up the good work. You are my favourite trainers and always make the sessions not only fun to workout to, but the devised exercises are very constructive and concise, which means I know the routines are working for me effectively. Thank you again. I wish both you and Mark all the very best of 2012 (as well as Davina of course) xx
