This is a great workout for the lower body. I did this video faithfully for about two months, but I got tired of it very quickly. The quality of the video is pretty bad, and the music is just the faint sound of a 1980's Casio keyboard in the background. I recommend this video if you use it once in a while, because it just isn't fun enough to get you up in the morning.
Tamilee is great. She is very mellow and explains everything you are doing in the workout very thouroughly. I love the fact that she isn't obnoxiuos and overly hyper like most work out instructers.
This is a killer leg workout. Tamilee really knows how to work your lower body -- sometimes more than you want to! The first part is standing work, followed by floor. You'll want to use ankle weights for the floor work. The total workout, including a warm-up and cool-down stretch is about 40 minutes. It goes by pretty quick, even though it's all legs/buns. I especially like the floor work; it's great for outer and inner thighs. The hamstring work leaves a little to be desired. You're lying on your stomach and curling your leg. It's okay, but I think other exercises are sometimes more effective for hamstrings.
Tamilee often gets off beat in this video, but since it's a toning workout and not aerobics, it doesn't mess you up too much. She gives excellent form pointers.
Overall, I give this tape a B, maybe B+. The workout itself probably rates an A, but "fun-ness" is only a C.
