As you can see from the title, this video is in
french. It is produced in Quebec, Canada in the NTSC
format. (It is the same as in the USA). I have had this
video for a few years now, it was recommanded to me by a
friend. It is a toning exercise tape that targets
abdominals, buttocks and thights. I remenber the first
few times I did it, it felt like my legs were on fire!!!
The SET is located in a studio and is pretty basic.
There is suspended fabric in the back ground and a few
plants. (Budget for decors are not as big as in the USA)
The MUSIC is instrumental. I think it was composed
especially fot the video, I don't remenber earing it
anywhere else. It is not that good but not that bad... I
can't categorize it!
The INSTRUCTOR cues well and does a good job, with
the help of two other girls,at showing proper form.
The WARM UP is complete and it prepares you well for
what is following.
The TONING segment is definitely working! It starts
with a series of squats, followed by lunges and some more
squats. (Legs on fire right here!) All of it accompanied
by some arm work. Then there is two series of leg and
abdominal floor work.
The STRETCHING is as complete as a 7 minutes stetch
can be. It is fair.
In conclusion, this is a tape that I recommand to
beginner and intermediate trainers, It is not the most up
beat video that I have ever done but it is a good lower
body toning workout.
