I have always enjoyed the Shape magazines and the articles and exercises they have, which is why I bought this DVD. It is great, it has 2 30 min workouts, and you do each workout twice a week. It also came with a resistance band and a 'back to basics meal plan' booklet. The meal plans are great, my husband read them and was excited about trying them with me, which is something that has never happened before! I also recognized some of the moves from an old Jane Fonda video I used to have, which are really easy to grasp and totally work your body. The 1st day I used the video I was sore the rest of the day and the next morning! The dvd also comes with 3 5 min workouts targeted for specific body areas. Another great thing about this dvd is that once you get into shape, you can do both workouts for a 1 hour cardio exercise, and you can pick and choose if you want to do the 5 min workout for your legs, arms, and/or abs. I am so glad I bought this, b/c it only takes 30 mins a day, I do it when my son is taking his nap. The instructors are very good at leading the routines and keep you motivated to keep moving and up your intensity. I would seriously recommend this to everyone, the exercises are good and easy to follow!
