I have many Kathy Smith DVD's. Some better than others but this is my absolute favourite workout. It is an excellent head to toe workout. Well thought out and put together. If you want a super toned, sexy body from head to toe, this work out is for you especially if you want to target your gluts and legs.
You can tackle this workout even if you are a beginner and if you are already in shape I can guarantee you that you will still be challenged and you will still get a great workout. I have been doing this workout for a month and I am still so sore for 1 - 2 days after even though I am doing other workouts all week (3 days spin, 2 days either pilates, isometrics or free weights, plus walking the dogs every day).
When I did the video the first time and started with the upper body portion, the people in the video were using 2lb weights. I laughed and thought that was lame. Well I tell you, even though I am already in shape, I had to put the 2lb weights down halfway through each exercise and use no weights at all!
Kathy is definitely not too overly chipper in this video which is a nice change.
If you are serious about getting into shape this workout is for you. It is a healthy mix of resistance and isometrics training focusing on burn to failure.
Oh how you will be sore but a good sore!

I believe I've done about ninety percent of all of Kathy Smith's videos, and for a good reason. Her workouts are well thought out and well planned, and the most effective.
I believe this video was more challenging than most of her other muscle toning videos because of the intricacy of the movements. The movements are very slight, but they are more intense and the angles are more awkward.
Because the exercises are more unconventional than other videos, it provides a nice change. However, one must be careful about hurting themselves while doing this workout (i.e., knees). The individual workouts themselves are not long, but they are intense. They work your muscles in directions they don't normally go.

This along with the Maxtrix DVD are my favorite Kathy Smith fitness videos. The moves are very challening and if you are un-coordinated like me, you may have to view/practice a couple times before you get it down. I will say that I feel sore right where we worked the muscles. I do this once a week on my "toning" non-cardio days. A great addition to my fitness library!

This is a wonderful departure to the strength DVD's I currently own. I enjoy the isometrics. As always Kathy instructs the proper technique and reminds you to keep good form though out the pose/exercise. The first time I did the DVD I could feel the areas I worked on (good new)!
This is a great addition to an all around workout regimen.

Total Body Lift is a great workout and the only reason I gave it four stars is that it lacks an aerobic section - and I really wish Kathy Smith had included one. The enitre hour is a bit challenging but it has become one of my favorite DVDs - love the upper body segment especially (light, and I mean light, as in 2 lbs., weights needed - and you will feel the burn!!!!) - the lower body segments are effective (yes, take care of your knees and watch your alignment as always) and the abdominal one will make you wonder if you can get through it, but you can and you will really feel a sense of accomplishment. After each "big burn" section Kathy stretches you out - instead of waiting for a cool down - there is no designated cool down but there is a warm up. I walk several miles a day and workout 3 times a week with a DVD such as this. I took ballet for 18 years as an adult but find this regime is effective yet less stressful on my body. (I also taught aerobics back in the 80's - fitness has always been a big part of my life - but am no longer into over exercising or punishing my body as with boot camp style workouts.) Does Kathy Smith look a little like Barbie in this? Maybe, but it doesn't interfere, so enjoy an excellent and effective workout in the privacy of your own home. My other favorite DVDs are "Peel Away the Pounds Pilates", "Body Boomers" (the "Moving thru Menopause" aerobics, weight lifting and yoga segments which are nurturing and effective and help you get back on your feet espeically if you're just getting back on track/had an injury/etc)- all from Kathy Smith. Her DVDs are clear, easy to follow and as challenging as you allow. I have tried many others - including Denise Austin, several pilates and ballet inspired workouts but always come back to Kathy Smith.

I bought this because of the reviews comparing it to Lotte Berk, one of my favorites. This is a workout based on those dance/pilates/yoga moves with some barre work, here done with a chair. The arm section is particularly good. I like this workout, and the variations on standard ballet plies (with a towel between your knees, for instance)are an inovative change,especially if you've been doing ballet barre exercises for awhile, as I have. I didn't give it five stars because I find it a little tedious, but it is definately worth buying.
