A time-efficient workout that features easy-to-follow, totally non-intimidating movements. Along with these “everyday” exercisers, you'll be burning calories, toning muscles and having fun. Janice Clark leads the program while Lisa adds the down-to-earth motivation (e.g. “reach up for the cookies ... no, I mean for the fruit”). Nearly every exercise is shown at three levels. You can start with the “foundation” option or advance to the “challenge” variation. The first segment focuses on body-sculpting. It includes a variety of Pilates and traditional floor/standing routines. The second section adds a cardio fat-burning benefit with hops, skaters and even gentle “speed blasts.” Requires 2 to 5 lb. dumbbells. DVD also has a personal training info section. ©2013.

Everyday Workout for the Everyday Woman
|Thought this workout to be extremely slow and boring. Gave it away. - posted by Sooooboring!! on 1/22/2014|
|I have many videos from Collage but this is my favorite. Its challenging but you can do it. You will sweat. Its the perfect amount of time. The results are great. Its more strenuous than Jane Fonda and less strenuous than Jillian Michaels. Lisa Whelchel makes me feel like I can do this. The instructor, Janis Clark is really just so so on motivation. There are three levels of intensity. Great for everyone and anyone. - posted by Karen on 1/16/2014|
|Finally. A non-killer workout!|
|To me, it seems like it is harder to find moderate exercise DVDs these days. There are some exceptions, like walking workouts and some of the dance workouts. But, it seems like a large percentage of workouts these days are "extreme", "ultimate", and/or "killer". These workouts appeal to many people, but there are others who want a moderate workout that won't kill them and that will help them just be healthy and fit.
This workout fits that niche and is targeted at beginner to low intermediate exercisers. In her introduction Lisa Whelchel, former star from The Facts of Life, stresses that this DVD is for the woman who doesn't necessarily like exercise, but who wants what it can do for her or who doesn't have a lot of time, but who wants exercise that can be done, so that she can move on with the rest of life. And she, Lisa, puts herself in that group.
This DVD offers two segments that can be done separately or together. These segments are 15 minutes segment and 20 minutes. The DVD menu gives options to do them together or one at a time, with or without the warm up and cool down. I did them together for a pretty good workout that lasts a little over 40 minutes.
The workout is comprised of strength moves, interspersed with bursts of cardio. The instructor tends to start with a simple move and then morph it into a compound move. The pace throughout the workout is fairly slow and deliberate and I had no problem with keeping up with what was happening (picking up dumbbells or putting them down). There are also a number of balance challenges that can be done as well. The cueing was generally well done and the instructor does mirror cue.
There are three exercisers backing up the instructor and they do beginner, intermediate, and advanced modification levels. Lisa does the intermediate level. The thing I liked about them is that they all looked like "real" women rather than fitness models. Lisa says that they are friends of hers and I wondered if they really are. She and the lead instructor apparently are friends. Lisa is miked along with the instructor and she talks some. She makes some comments, which some will find inane, and she asks some obviously planted questions, like "Will using weights make my muscles really big?" (or something like that). I liked her in this workout, but then I was probably flashing back to when I loved watching Facts of Life (yes, I'm THAT old).
I have bad knees and a bad back and bad hands. I modified separately from all the exercisers once in awhile, but I generally followed one of the three. It worked fine for me. There are a number of squats and lunges and if you try to avoid these, this wouldn't be the workout for you.
The setting looks like a living room in the background. They stand in front of the furniture on the set. I don't remember any music and I assume I would have noticed if there wasn't any, so it must not have been memorable at all. This workout does not require much room.
I think that this DVD is very doable for beginners. It is also versatile enough to appeal to somewhere into the intermediate range of exercisers because of the different levels they offer of the moves. I do NOT think that this workout is for high intermediate or advanced exercisers unless they are looking for an easy workout. It does move at a moderate pace. I found it to be a refreshing change from the general trend of exercise DVDs these days, but some will find it boring. - posted by Laura on 1/4/2014|
|This video is excellent! Yes, it is for beginners, but I would argue that if you do the exercises correctly, you would get a great workout regardless of your fitness level. Both workouts seem to have a toning emphasis but because you are using so many muscles, you also get a great cardio workout. Would recommend to anyone... - posted by Meagan on 12/21/2013|
|Very Nice For Beginners or Folks who want...|
|A gentle workout! If you are not a Beginner I think it is very unfair to rate this video as dull. The video is designed to be used by Beginners. There are three different women doing the workout so that when you get a bit stronger you can move forward. This is perfect for folks who are new or fairly new to exercise. This instructor is not yelling, demanding or intimidating. She is perfect for someone starting out. As a Beginner you will feel encouraged as you move thru the routine. I'm not a Beginner but there are some days when I just want to take it easy, yet move my body, especially in the mornings. I tend to do tougher workouts mid-day. If you are a fan of say Jillian Michael's you won't like this one but if you are new to exercise this is perfect for you. Great gift for a Beginner. - posted by Yvette Williams on 12/7/2013|
|What is up with this workout?|
|I thought it was kind of boring and very SLOW....Not for advanced. Would not recommend it. - posted by Shirley on 12/5/2013 [note from Collage] Please keep in mind that this workout is labeled "Beginner", so it is meant to be a slower paced workout. |
|I gave this away, OMG! was a gift and not my style. - posted by Carla on 12/5/2013|
