I was so excited to try this work-out. I did it for the first time last night, and man, am I hurting today. My legs are the most sore - I guess 5 months of relative inactivity will do that to you. I'm going to wait until the soreness goes away, then do it again. I'm aiming for 3-4 times a week. The session, which included a warm-up, work-out and cool down, took about 25 or 30 minutes. I didn't sweat, but I could feel my heartrate going up.
What I liked: I love the Reece is actually pregnant in the video. There are work-outs for each month, and you can watch her pregnancy progress as you go through the video. I also like that you can do the whole thing in 30 minutes - I don't think my schedule could handle anything longer.
What I don't like: You need all sorts of equipment - a mat, an exercise ball, a stretchy band thing, free weights, a sturdy chair and someone to help you. Reece's trainer is in the video and he helps her by hold things and whatnot. Since I didn't have any of those things on hand (mine are buried in the basement somewhere!), I just modified the work-out the best I could.
Overall: The DVD was pretty good. I'll definitely keep using it - at least until I find something better.
I can't wait for the snow to melt and Spring to come so I can go for walks (or maybe be brave and run)!
