Okay, in my opinion, if you really want to lose weight with cardio, you should do at least 45 minutes. My ideal is an hour. Sometimes longer. But when you have a demanding two-year-old, a demanding husband and a demanding work schedule, sometimes an hour just won't squeeze in. That's when this workout truly is a beautiful thing.
There are four sections: arms, legs, abs and cardio. I'm sure the breakdown for these have already been posted. I will just add that if you find these easy, using light weights kicks things up a notch. By light, I mean from one to two pounds max. Any more than that will put wear and tear on the joints.
Aesthetically, the DVD is a bit much. Janis and her two background girls are consistently dressed in very bright and sometimes garish outfits. And it is absolutely criminal for anyone to look as thin in bright pink as Janis Saffell does! The music is also a bit much. Despite the costumes and music, I like the workouts enough to consistently do them when I am crunched for time.
Another great Janis Saffell workout is Hardcore Circuit Kickbox which is one to do when you have an hour!
Janis cues well and has a pleasant personality.
