The aerobic workout in her Total Body Fitness video is deceptive. It starts out rather slowly but by the end of the segment, you do feel the workout. I especially like her thigh work and pushups. Her ab work is pretty good, too. She does more repetitions than any other instructor, and I really like that. I also like the intensity of her squats and lunges. Other than Thin Thighs in 30 Days, Kathy Ireland has, I feel, the best lower body workout of all the tapes I own. Karen Voight is another one with an excellent lower body workout. One does not feel the intensity of the workout with hers, but they are equally effective. For a night when I am too tired to do a full video, Kathy Ireland's Body Specifics is great. It is very intense, and amazingly refreshing. I am trying to get Kathy's Advance Sports Fitness video, but cannot find it anywhere.
I like her as an instructor. I have no complaints about her as an instructor at all. She is very straightforward and no nonsense. She also uses ordinary people in her videos, which I like. It makes one goals for reaching a particular fitness level seem more attainable.
