I do exercise videos every day, and am pretty fit (Firm and Karen Voight aerobic videos are my level). I do this video when I'm tired or pregnant (modified, less the abs) -- it's fairly low impact and Denise is such a nice person that she actually puts me in a good mood. It's not too long, and the intervals between aerobics and weights make it easy to get through.

Instructor Comments:
I actually like Denise Austin. As silly as she is, I get the impression that she is truly enthusiastic about helping people get fit. Her form is strange (how does she get her arms and legs so out of sync?), she has no center (I'm a dance instructor), and her timing (especially in her older videos) is pretty bad. However, her casual style of cueing and choreography are sometimes refreshing when compared with other scripted videos.
