Prevention Fitness Systems: 2-Week Turnaround - Cardio ****** I will start this review with the honest admission that this is one of my favorite fitness DVDs and I go back to it over and over again. The advantages it supplies really seem to be hard to beat. First of all the workout is relatively short and divided into two 15-minute segments. These can be performed jointly as a 30-minute training session or separately, ideally combined with other exercises. The purpose of this DVD is to initially get your blood pumping with some low-impact cardio, weight training and body shaping routines (like lunges and squats). In the second, more dynamic part you move on to interval training (cardio followed by short bursts of intense activity), which really makes your heart earn its keep and proves to have great energizing qualities. After doing this 30- minute workout I usually go on the treadmill for an hour, where I walk briskly, with 1-2 minute intervals of running about every 10 minutes. I feel like a new woman afterwards: happy and aglow (albeit very sweaty, red-faced and generally not incredibly attractive) from a well executed effort. But if you don’t have much time you can just do this DVD by itself, it should still prove to be very effective. As an extra feature the producers included a bonus yoga-stretch at the end of the regimen. I personally did not care for it that much, but I’m generally not what you would call a dedicated yogi, because unfortunately I have not been blessed with the best sense of balance and sometimes find it hard to hold the proper position. And my nose might not be spectacular, but that’s the only one I have and I don’t want it squished flat when I fall right onto it attempting to do the “tree”, “warrior” or “squirrel giving you the finger” pose (ok, the squirrel one is made up, but I thought it sounded like a lot of fun!). To use this DVD you will only need a set of hand weights (how heavy you want them will depend on your personal preference and level of fitness, you can increase their weight as you progress) and some space to get that booty moving. The exercises are not especially elaborate and don’t really require a large area, so you should be able to set up pretty much anywhere. If you wish, you can even do the beginner version without the dumbbells. The instruction involves three different levels: beginner, normal and advanced. Another aspect of this workout I enjoy is the “human factor”. I genuinely like the instructor (Chris Freytag): she rather effortlessly achieves the difficult task of offering just the right amount of encouragement, warmth and cordiality while still being perceived as an authority figure, whose directions you want to follow. Kind of like a well- respected friend, easy-going and entertaining, but still somebody whom you would like to please by being an accommodating and diligent student. Her guidance makes it quite easy to copy the steps and routines presented here. In addition she is accompanied by two other girls, who respectively do the beginner and advanced version of the exercises, so you can choose the best option for you. To sum up: I would definitely recommend this DVD! It truly is a wonderful product to have for those days when you are in a rush, but still want to do something to proudly wear those skinny jeans. Granted that the routines presented here are not especially innovative or original, but if you don’t mind going back to the ever-effective, classic moves that get the job done, then you will be one happy, well-trained girl.  Or boy. Or alien: no discrimination here, everybody is welcome to join in. Truth be told looking at the way most aliens are depicted, all chubby with round little bellies, it looks like they could use to lose a pound or two. The green complexion is not that flattering, either. But that’s a topic for another day I guess. And last but not least I wanted to also emphasize the fact that this DVD is really inexpensive compared to some of the others on the market, so you get great value for your money!
