*NEW* Exercise DVD Poll Results!

Earlier this year we asked you to vote on which exercise DVD you'd like us to review next. The results are out!

With 28.36% of the votes the winner is....

Jordan - The Jordan Workout

and coming a very close second with 20.15% of the votes is...

Davina - My Three 30 Minute Workout

As there wasn't much between the two we have decided to review not just one DVD but TWO! Yes, we've bought copies of both DVDs and we'll be trying them out and reviewing them before the New Year.

Bookmark this page and watch this space! Below are the other dvds we've tried.

 

Tracy Shaw's Salsacise - for Hips and Thighs ****

We recently bought a copy of this on DVD and will be doing a full review very soon. In the mean time here's a brief run down of what you can expect. Firstly...it's actually quite good! With a glut of celebrity endorced exercise videos on the market it was a nice surprise to review one we actually enjoyed! None of us had ever done any Salsa before so we weren't sure what to expect and we were pleasantly surprised. The video/dvd starts off fairly gently before targeting specific areas.

The majority of the 'moves' are fairly easy to get a grip on although we still hadn't quite worked out the 'inner thigh trimmer' that involves pointing your feet out and then in again whilst wiggling your hips by the end of the video. The only part of the video that was really tough was the 'Side slimmer' section which was really difficult - but at least it looked as though Tracy was having trouble too! The section on toning up your abs is different from most other exercise videos as you don't do a single crunch (it's all done on your hands and knees!). Invest in a decent exercise mat for this as, if done on a laminate floor you'll find yourself slipping about. All in all a really fun video that we'd actually want to do again!

Tae Bo - The Future of Fitness *****

This workout video seems to have taken over the world. It's a mixture of martial arts type punching and kicking to a great soundtrack and Billy Blanks' instructions.

We are complete converts - it's empowering , reduces stress and there's no bouncing up and down - yes! This video only lasts 1/2 hour aswell and yet burns up a huge 400 calories.This video is highly addictive and effective - highly recommended.

Elle MacPherson - The Body ****

This exercise video has had rave reviews on every video site we've looked at including this one,

"I did this video for six weeks 2 summers ago and lost one and a half stones I loved the video but have since misplaced it. I am so glad that I have found it again and can't wait to get back into it! "

Four well deserved stars!

Original Callanetics ***

Do you remember doing this years ago when it came out? We do! It's repetitive and quite hard work but HOW it works! Using this video visibly reduces and tones thighs, hips and buttocks in just a few sessions and if you don't like huffing and puffing it's the video for you because it's not aerobic in the slightest!

Rosemary Conley's Fat Attack Workout ****

If you're not British you probably won't have heard of Rosemary Conley but she began the whole low fat phenomenon in the UK with her 'Hip & Thigh Diet' back in the 80's. Her club is still going strong and her exercise videos are extremely popular. Someone who bought this video said,

" I have had great fun with this video. The exercises and music are both very good and I found myself wanting to do the routine again and again. I would recommend this for anybody that wants to do some exercise without going over the top. The video is well priced too for what you get. "

Ali MacGraw - Yoga Mind & Body ***

If you're not a complete beginner at Yoga you'll love this video! Filmed on beautiful white sands this video is pure mental relaxation. One reviewer had to say,

"This is one of my favorite yoga videos. The music and movements make it fun and invigorating, not boring like some other yoga tapes. I think it is great for both beginning and intermediate students... It is nearly an hour long but the time goes by very quickly. I also love that you don't need any props to do the poses"
