Power Zone - The Ultimate Metabolism Boosting Workout

I read one other review of this workout and agree with the comment made about Denise's poor cueing. It's particularly irritating during the aerobic segments, but the choreography is simple enough that I don't think it will bother me after awhile. The aerobics segment is about 25 minutes long and includes a couple toning intervals. After that there is an 11-minute upper body toning segment, 10-minute lower body toning segment and a 10 minute ab segment. The fitness band (included with the DVD purchase) was used in all segments, except the ab segment. I found a lot of the moves fun and a little different from the usual stuff. I was even impressed that when Denise said during the toning segments that her formula is "8 slow reps and 8 fast reps", she pretty much kept her word. I'm used to glaring uneven reps on her workouts, but she was much better on this one.

Instructor Comments:
My husband was working on the computer while I was working out and said, "I don't think I could stand listening to her for very long."
