Following Suzanne I rate these routines advanced. Her instruction, cuing, motivation, and form pointers are excellent. Suzanne is an excellent instructor that continually provides high quality, effective, and unique workouts. I think this is a great routine for everyone, not just for pregnant women. I received this DVD to review.
