HASH(0x93db4c48) out of 5 stars The boredom-free workout 25 July 2006
By AmazonCustomer - Published on Amazon.com
This DVD is really the cure to workout boredom. It's over 120+ one minute exercises vary each time to put in the DVD, so you'll even begin to look forward to seeing which one is chosen each time. You can vary both the length of your workout and the intensity - which various time intervals and a beginning and advanced skill level. You can also choose to focus on a specific area - such as upper body, lower body, and total body. I've read some of the reviewers say they didn't find this one challenging, but I found that I did - especially when I played the DVD for at least 20 minutes or more. I liked the options to workout in less time as well, as sometimes it's just a nice compliment to another workout. This DVD offers so much variety I'd say it would fit nicely into any routine.

HASH(0x96170d68) out of 5 stars Solid workout for beginners to intermediate 10 April 2006

The thing which distinguishes a Minna Lessig workout is that her focus is always on using safe exercises to get good results, i.e. become more fit and generally lose weight. Her education in physical therapy and biology is clearly reflected in her approach of challenging, but not overexerting, the body.

The upshot is that this DVD, as with all her DVDs, is optimistic and body-positive in its conception. It focuses on what most people will be able to do in a very small amount of time to get in shape and change their lives rather than just on how the average person's buns, abs, or upper arms are going to look later. The focus is on being patient and on the real, positive changes happening inside the body long before they become visible on the outside.

The minute-exercise concept works well, and transitions are well planned. However, some exercises are necessarily more challenging, e.g. push-ups, than others because they have to be performed more quickly. The level 1 exercises tend to include fewer multi-muscle-group exercises than the level 2 exercises. The concept also seems to be that the better shape you are in, the more you will have to gradually add heavier weights to your routine to challenge yourself and progress. You have to have enough body-awareness to know how your workout feels and ergo how heavy your weights should be. The other part of the workout concept is that form is everything - the challenge for more fit students is not just to perform the exercises in the short amount of time allotted, but to perform them properly. This is where the aerobic element has been built into the workout.

Since the one-minute concept necessarily adds in a few seconds of break between each new exercise, you don't do several minutes' of uninterrupted aerobic exercise. However, the workouts are aerobic, especially on level 2, and even those who are in better shape will be able to get a good workout from this DVD, provided that they select the right level of challenge for themselves and, as Minna might say, really pay attention to their form.

This DVD is the best one I have yet!!

Minna Lessig really knows her stuff and encourages and teaches with every exercise. I already had Quickfix 10 minute workout (which is also great by the way) and it was time to add another to the collection.

There is no getting bored with this workout. There is so much variety and you can choose different work-outs for every need. I also LOVE the sections for warm up, cool down and stretches. It really rounds out the work-outs. Plus with all the exercises being a minute long....completing each one seems like a doable task...which is a wonderful motivator in itself. In addition, many of the exercises consist of you working with your own body weight...which is so important in life. You never know when you may need to hold yourself up one day.

PLEASE do yourself a favor and get this DVD. I know it will get you as enthused about your workout as it has for me.

HASH(0x93db8618) out of 5 stars What a great buy!! 4 Sept. 2006

I bought this DVD because I liked the idea of flexibility with regard to length of workout, target muscle groups and variability in exercises. I LOVE this DVD. The instructor gives great cues after demonstrating the exercise. I am not looking to lose weight, but to tone my body, and this is the way for me. I feel like I have a personal trainer without the expense and bother of travelling from my home!

HASH(0x93db8888) out of 5 stars Hardly Boredom Free... 16 Jan. 2007
By A. Shiovitz - Published on Amazon.com
I was slightly disappointed by this DVD. Although I like the concept of a constantly changing workout video, this one doesn't have enough "1 minute" segments in my opinion. I generally get the same segments repeated 3 or 4 times PER WORKOUT. It's not a horrible thing, but just don't get too overly impressed by the claims that there are a million workout possibilities contained within this DVD. Are there an almost infinite number of ORDERS these segments could be put in? Sure. But when the segments are repeated multiple times within the same 15 minutes, it kind of defeats an "boredom busting" qualities this DVD might have.
