Summary: Why isn't this on DVD?
Comment: I'll join in the chorus. I have always LOATHED exercising. I was a 'heavy boy' and when I got to college, I determined to be 'thin.'

Not knowing exactly what I was doing, the combination of being twenty, eating salads twice a day, walking all over campus, etc. did it. I went down to 175 at my lowest.

Then, over the years, the weight gradually crept back. I found Susan's tape after we were married, and I liked her very positive manner, and did the routine, and 'modified.' Actually, I got pretty good with it, and the results were almost instantaneous.

Then we had kids, and it was THEIR needs. Now I find, at 'my age,' I look like I did when I was 15. I thought to buy this DVD for a summer of Doctoral study, and exercise away from the kids, doing it EVERY DAY, and lo, it's not available!! Grrrr.

I don't care. I am going to buy a portable VHS player, and hook it into the dorm tv. I like Susan's personality, her encouraging manner, and that there REALLY are OTHER 'fat people' doing this, as well as the type/volume of music. I cannot ABIDE the thumping, driving 'music' used in most exercise videos these days, I'm not trying to be a piece of meat in a bar, just to be healthy for my kids and my wife, TYVM!

Susan, I don't know why you disappeared, but these videos, their total package, their motivational factors, have kept coming back to you, even ten years later. God bless you!

Summary: Love this workout
Comment: I wish this workout was on dvd, I have burned through 3 copies already. I am an exercise video junkie, if it's been made I probably have it, but this video is my ultimate favorite. It's inspiring and a great workout.

Summary: Anyone can do this workout
Comment: This video changed my body- and my life. I despise exercise and always have. I am the type who couldn't run a mile without stopping to walk if a gun were to my head. This video is challenging whether you're a beginner or advanced. Her whole conceptis all fitness levels can modify and work within their own level of fitness. I lost 60 lbs which was my goal and have kept it off for 10 years. I still go back to this tape and love it. I promise even the severely out of shape can do the tape without feeling like a loser and giving up.

Summary: Excellent fitness program!
Comment: I've never reviewed anything on Amazon before, but I wanted to share my thoughts on this work-out, simply because it's the absolute best!

I just had a baby about three months ago, and in my efforts to lose the excess weight, I turned to my old friend Susan Powter. I had used this video before many times to maintain my shape, but now I needed it more than ever! Let me just say that in just a *week* of using it, I already feel firmer and more trim. The wonderful thing about this program is, first of all, the fact that you are encouraged to modify! I still modify a lot of themoves, but I know that I'm still burning fat and building muscle. Second, it's not that gimicky, dancing, froo-froo stuff. This is for real! The moves are controlled, and you really end up feeling each muscle group work!

I love how great I feel after this workout! It's so effective, and I really don't know any other program that even comes close to this one.

Summary: It really works!
Comment: I have had this video for a number of years, but I finally started using it in June. I followed Susan's advice to modify, as I was overweight and out of shape. I could only do 20 minutes of it at first. I did the warm-up, the first aerobic routine, and then I'd fast forward to the cool-down. I gradually added on more minutes as my fitness improved. I also followed Susan's instructions on how to modify the level of intensity to fit my fitness level. That was easy to do because I just had to look at the participants and follow the one who was exercising at my level. This video has real-life women (and a man) with real-life bodies, and they appear to be at various levels of fitness.

After five months of daily workouts with the video, I am at the highest intensity level, with my step also at the highest level. In addition, I stop the tape at the end of each step routine to do push-ups, crunches, and to lift weights. This adds another 10 minutes to the workout, making it a full hour. I find it easy to substitute in other movements if I get bored.

The tempo of the music is at a pace that allows me time to think about form, extension, and resistance, and I can practice using all those. That is what Susan says will change your body, not just doing the movement. Throughout the workout, Susan gives reminders about the correct form. She also reminds you that all you need to do is step up and down on the step, and not to worry about doing it perfectly.

My results? I am now 40 pounds lighter. I went from a size 16 to a size 6. I look and feel fantastic, and my doctor is amazed and very pleased with my progress.

I had to make myself do this workout everyday at first, but now I look forward to it. I still modify. If I'm feeling too tired to workout, I'll do the 20 minute version I started with. Or I'll just step up and down, and not do all the arm and leg movements. But most days, I like the challenge of doing the whole tape, and seeing if I can do it at the highest level. Afterward, I feel energized for the whole day.

I recommend this workout for anyone who'd like to get lean, strong, and healthy. It works!
