I love workouts with several mix and match sections and this is another goody. The two aerobic sections are around 20+ minutes each and mostly low impact. There are a couple little boo-boos and Tamilee's cueing could have been a little better in spots, but all in all it was not difficult to follow. The sports band is used in a 10-minute lower body workout and a 10-minute upper body workout and I could "feel the burn" - particularly in the lower body segment. The 10-minute abs section is pretty tough, but fun. I also liked both of the bonus sections - a short abdominal core workout and a short yoga/stretch workout. There are lots of different ways to use this workout and I think I will be getting plenty of use out of it. I also wanted to comment on the reviewer who said Tamilee looks older in this workout and it made them feel sad. First of all, Tamilee has a wonderfully fit, toned body. I also know she's in her 40's (at least mid-forties). Hopefully, she WILL start to age - the only other choice is death, so most people would probably choose aging over the alternative. The reviewer may be referring to the fact that bright outdoor lighting seems to be less flattering than what they are able to do in a studio setting, but she still looked great and no different than anyone else would look exercising in the bright sunlight.

Instructor Comments:
I'm a big fan of Tamilee. She's very pleasant and motivating without pushing too hard or talking too much. I thought the cueing could have been a tad better on the cardio segments, however.
