I like all of the tapes in this set, though I do some more than others. There are 3 aerobic tapes, each with a different focus. The 1st is classic cardio, the 2nd is cardio strike/kickboxing, and the 3rd is a combination of the two. Overall I like all of the tapes, but in the tapes with a lot of the striking, it gets to be too slow at times because the focus is on the upper body. But as a whole, the tapes are effective and give you the opportunity to switch from one focus to another.

There are 4 strength training videos--abs/ arms and shoulders/ legs, hips, and buttocks/ and chest and back. The tapes I do the most are the arms and shoulders, and the legs, hips, and buttocks. Both are very quick, effective, and to the point. I tend to have to use lighter than usual weights on the arms video, because he does a large amount of repetition, so you can really feel the burn. The legs video is quick and effective as well, but does not involve much activity with weights--it focuses more on lunges and squats.

Overall, these tapes have added more variety to my workouts, and I really enjoy them.

Instructor Comments:
Gilad is very effective in these videos. He is motivating, has good cueing, and good form. For those like myself that like Gilad's videos, you shouldn't be disappointed.
