I blithely shook off the negative reviews and, oh, how I wish I hadn't. After going through this workout once, I completely understand what other people were talking about..."ex-sale", with a long and drawn out "ess". It gets to the point where it's all you can think about. Combine the utter lack of relaxation (because all you can do is think "it's ex-hale, ex-hale I tell you!") with the fact that this is not really a workout, it's more of a stretching program with one poor woman sitting on a chair for practically the whole program, it's really not worth the money or the time.
