This workout will not get your heart pumping as much as some of her other workouts such as 30 day shred or Ripped in 30. However, there are still some tough moves - especially if you complete the 'advanced' versions of the movements. Just don't expect to really break out into a sweat. I think for those people that like and are used to regular yoga DVDs or going to the yoga studio, this DVD may seem like an abomination of traditional yoga.

NEW Banish Fat Boost Metabolism (DVD)
I tried this DVD after trying both the 30 Day Shred and No More Trouble Zones DVD. I found it to be no where near the same level of difficulty (in terms of intensity) as the other two DVDs. She incorporates moves from her kickboxing days and a few movements that mimic skiing such as doing "moguls". There are some repeated exercises from her other DVDs, but most of the exercises are new.

I have read some reviews of how this DVD is very difficult so perhaps I wasn't working as hard as I should have been? For example, raising my knees high enough etc. Well, at least this goes to show you that you can tailor it to the level that you are feeling on that particular day.
