In this workout, Debra offers a circuit training workout where she leads a few minutes of weights, working on specific body parts, followed by a few minutes of cardio. The strength count and patterns are usually 2 sets of 8 reps followed by 2-3 sets of 8 reps with Super Sets (working two body parts or combining 2 exercises together). She hits all the major muscle groups. The cardio reminds me of walking workouts and includes more steps than "the basic four" found in Leslie workouts. She includes V-steps, mambos and cha chas.
She has two background exercisers, both "shapely women". They looked like real people I know in real life and not the verty thin fitness professionals you find in most workout videos. One of them wears ankle weights for added resistance during the entire workout and stays grounded the whole time. The music is upbeat instrumental. It was good and fine, but nothing special.
I like doing this workout using my Fitstix during the cardio sections and 5-10 pound weights in the strength section. It's a good basic workout for those days I don't feel like thinking much.
She is motivating and down to earth and encouraging. I really like her in this workout.
