    I’ve worked with a personal trainer for a year and took a year off to run a marathon. I noticed that once I stopped weight training I slowly gained weight, even with running. So here I’m back again with weights. I’m new to Kathy Smith (probably the only one in the country) and I’m impressed. She does all the exercises that my trainer does and even provides 2 methods for either supersetting (to fatigue) or traditional lifting. The leg workout will get your heartrate up. The arm workout was perfect.

    I don’t recommend this video to beginners. It’s much too fast. Great video for a 6-12 week toning. I will mention that a weight bench is helpful and there is a 7 minute ab workout at the end which I didn’t even know about. The workouts went so fast I couldn’t believe they were 20 minutes.

    A great tape for adding weight training to your exercise routine.

    A caveat about equipment you’ll need. I watched the intro and it said all you need to get started is a set of dumbbells and either a chair or a weight bench. I went w/ the bench. Then I got to the second workout, where they suggested ankle weights, and also the exercises required a straight-backed chair, which I did not have, as I bought the bench. Sigh! (If I did this over again, I’d skip the bench cause a chair will work just as well).

    That said, these are two fast, fun workouts that produce results. The lower body, especially, seems to burn my legs up but then, maybe that’s where I need the most work. The mercifully-short abs/back “bonus” workout is over before ya know it, which (if you hate abs work as much as I do) is a good thing. I can really feel a difference, though, so hey, it’s working!

    The background music is cheesy but fun, and Kathy’s enthusiasm is infectious. If her motivational outbursts piss you off, you should really try to get in a more positive frame of mind when you work out, I think.

    One final suggestion: try vigorously vaccuuming your workout space as your warmup. Five minutes, and you really warm up all the muscle groups. PLUS… you’ve cleaned your carpet. No sense in jogging in place for five minutes when you can vaccuum!!

    I love this tape. I got it about six months ago and have been doing it about twice a week and I couldn’t be happier with the results. This tape will get your arms and legs in terrific shape (the ab program is a little too short for me, frankly) if you do it faithfully, and the tape is so enjoyable, that it’s easy to do faithfully. As she points out in the video, building muscle helps you lose weight, and this video will help you reach your goal. As other reviewers have stated, she offers two tracks, complete with guidance as to who should do what when, and recommends beginning weights. Her direction is terrific and the tape really flows. She’s energetic, without being overly peppy (as I find her in some other videos). Unlike a lot of other tapes, you don’t waste time listening to instruction, you are working out for the entire 40 minutes. Kathy Smith has split the tape into two 20 minute workouts (upper and lower body) which is really helpful when you’ve got limited time to workout.

    Bottom line, Kathy Smith has designed a terrific workout tape that is easy to stick with and will give you the results you want.
