LOL! i tend not to think of my vids as cringe-worthy, but maybe I've lived so long with them that I'm immune?? All the wonderful old Firms have some cheese factor, but they're such great workouts that I don't care.

I do find my Tracy Anderson video jackets to be embarrasing b/c she's half dressed and looks a little like a soft porn star in some of the pictures. This is part of hte reason I keep my videos in a binder.

RE: YBB
I refuse to own any workouts with "Booty" in the title. Sorry, Tracy Mallett.

And LOL at your poor friend innocently discovering early 90's exercise cheese on your shelf.

I thought after 25 years of buying workout videos I was way beyond paying good money for a cheesy workout. With reviews and video clips, you have a good idea before it gets to you right?

Well I managed to find one in Maryís last sale. I did my research. Mary had a clip. It had five 5 star ratings on Amazon. (Possible insider reviews?) I have been into boxing workouts and I was intrigued. Ended up being dumbstruck at how I was suckered. It was good for a laugh though.

Z-BOX Fitness-The Workout. It is against the rules to make disparaging remarks about cast members so I canít say too much but if anyone else is tempted by this one, contact me first. I still have it. Hidden away, because looking at the cover is a little embarrassing. Proof I am not the connoisseur of workout videos I thought I was.

Loulou, how was the video different from the clip? I thought the clip looked pretty unbearable.

Good question, Gina. I just viewed the clip for the first time since I bought it. I guess it doesnít except I now own the full length version. It must have been the mood I was in that day looking at all of the sale items and trying to find low impact, boxing type workouts. At the time it looked like something unique I might like to try. Today watching it my mistake is obvious.
