Rapid Fire 4: Sweat

Rapid Fire 4: Sweat is Susan Chung's most recent kickboxing workout and it is the second Rapid Fire workout I have bought. I really like Susan Chung and her kickboxing workouts. I honestly don't know which I like better--this one or Rapid Fire 3. I love them both! Rapid Fire 4 is similar to Rapid … Continue reading Rapid Fire 4: Sweat



Chiseled is a tough cardio + strength/metabolic strength training workout from Toby Massenburg. It is advanced, but very doable for all fitness levels. This is my second workout by Toby and what I like is how in both of his workouts that I've done, he incorporates just the right amount of recovery so you can … Continue reading Chiseled

Step Boxing

Ever since I discovered Kelly Coffey-Meyer and her 30 Minutes to Fitness series I have been buying up her workouts (so there is a lot more KCM reviews to come). This is the only one that I bought that isn't part of the 30 Minutes to Fitness collection. I was intrigued by the concept of … Continue reading Step Boxing

Extreme Shed & Shred

Extreme Shed & Shred is probably my favorite Jillian Michael's workout. I've had it for a long time but I haven't done it in a while. It contains two metabolic strength training workouts--Level 1 and Level 2. I love them both; however, the only one that might justify the title "Extreme" is Level 2. But … Continue reading Extreme Shed & Shred

Kettlebody By Brook

Kettlebody by Brook is a collection of 3 workouts created by Brook Benten. It is actually a very cool little fitness program. In her intro to the workouts, she gives you a rotation schedule to follow: Cardio on Monday, Yoga on Tuesday and Toning on Wednesday. Repeat for a total of 6 days, take a … Continue reading Kettlebody By Brook


There is a somewhat long story behind me getting this workout and I will try to keep it brief so as not to bore readers. I have been intrigued with this workout for a very long time. But I held off purchasing it for a host of reasons--it is not cheap ($22.49 on Amazon), I … Continue reading Piloxing

Bob Harper’s Totally Ripped Core

Another tough workout from Bob Harper; however Totally Ripped Core is not as tough as most of Bob's other workouts that I possess (and I possess most of his non-Biggest Loser workouts). It is┬áchallenging tho, make no mistake. And I really like it. This workout is not a strength workout exactly and not a cardio … Continue reading Bob Harper’s Totally Ripped Core

Tabata Bootcamp with Toys

Just look at the title of this workout DVD? How could I resist? Tabata with Toys? A whole DVD devoted to tabata? I had to have it! Mindy Mylrea is new to me, so I didn't know what to expect. (**I started working my way through this DVD before I did Intensity Overload; however because … Continue reading Tabata Bootcamp with Toys

STS Squat Rack Legs

For more information on STS see STS Overview and Prep. I am now on my second round of STS and in Mesocycle 3, and finally doing Squat Rack Legs. My first time through I did Plyo Legs only, but this time I am doing them both. I do Plyo Legs on Wednesdays and on Saturdays … Continue reading STS Squat Rack Legs

Breathless Body 3: HIIT it Big!

I am a HUGE fan of Amy Dixon's HIIT workouts and HIIT workouts in general, so I snapped this one up as soon as I saw it. Before I go any further, I want to mention how I plan to review this workout. Since it is the 3rd in her Breathless Body series, I want … Continue reading Breathless Body 3: HIIT it Big!
