The title wouldn't bother me if I really liked the workout. After all, it's between me and Mary or me and Amazon. But it's Tracy Mallett, and like someone else said, I don't click with her, so I doubt I would buy this particular workout. But I will say I'm surprised she would go there with that title. Why does everything seem to be about looking sexy these days?

Definite deal-breaker for me. I hate titles like that - they insult my intelligence.

I might buy it as I like her workouts but I HATE the title.

Deal breaker for me too. If David Letterman had a '10 Stupidest Workout Titles' list this would definitely make it. Except it's not even funny, just stupid. Buying such a workout would only encourage her and God only knows what it would lead to. You vote with your money and it (the workout) wouldn't get my vote.

It's a "no" for me too. The look good naked concept is overused anyway. The way to have the next hot thing is to have the NEXT hot thing. So Tracy, move on to something new.

It screams desperation to me, personally. I don't find it insulting, just stupid and kinda embarrassing for the instructor.

Based on the title NO! Probably not even if I liked the workout. Its not really a goal of mine to be considered "hot"

No, I wouldn't buy it. I don't like embarrassing titles or covers - that Supermodel workout is the worst.

A "no" from me, too. I share my workout video collection with my children. I have a lot of Richard Simmons and Ellen Barrett and Leslie Sansone and others that I'm happy to have my children join if they happen to walk through the room. I want them to have fun exercising -- not think about how they'll look naked! My teens and I critique videos and recommend certain ones to each other.

Thinking about it, it seems one of Tracey's has the most (to me) offensive title in my collection. "Booty Barre"??? Not a fan of naming workouts for body parts, either.

I choose workouts based on my desire to have a healthy body. Looking hot naked isn't my goal. (Or, if it is, it's way down the list and I wouldn't admit it in polite company. )
