'Workout: One-On-One Training with Jackie'
(Jackie Warner, Carole Antouri, Kathy Griffin, et al / DVD / NR / (2006) 2008 / LGF)
Overview: Get the results of a celebrity trainer at home with Jackie Warner star of Bravo's hit show Workout and owner of Sky Sport Spa in Beverly Hills. This DVD includes three highly effective fat-burning and toning routines featuring Jackie's one-on-one training technique that delivers results!
DVD Verdict: This is an excellent DVD with 3 circuit workouts (each 20 min long) that have a specific focus: Upper Body, Core, Lower Body. It features Jackie Warner with four of her trainers: Jesse, Rebecca, Augustina and Renessa. While the trainers all do the warmup and stretch together, during the weight training Jackie works out one-on-one with one of the individual trainers. She has them do the workout while she gives them pointers on form and motivation, except in the core workout where they all workout together. She is encouraging without being cheesy.
I really like this workout and felt it provided an adequate challenge for the intermediate and perhaps the beginner exerciser who really wants a challenge (as there are some modifications shown). There are some new and interesting moves as well as some old favorites, so you get a great amount of variety.
You do approximately one minute of each weight training exercise and for every 3-4 strength moves you do, there is also 1 minute of a cardio move. It moves at a fast pace but not so fast that you feel intimidated. You'll need light to moderate hand weights and a mat. Come on, you can do anything for a minute!
I did the upper body portion. And let me tell ya I am not going to be able to move my arms tomorrow. This work out is not something I would recommend for beginners. It will definitely seem intimidating at first. But if you just do as many reps as you can then you will definitely be able to build up to keep up with Jackie and her trainers. Its a great workout. Jackies queuing is perfect and she gives lots of tips on keeping good form. All you need for this workout is a pair of light hand weights and you are good to go. Another workout similar to this one that will cause equal amounts of pain is the Jillian Michaels 30 day Shred.
Overall, you will definitely feel the burn and see results with this one. It is well worth the price and Jackie is a master trainer. This is a Full Screen Presentation (1.33:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs, but doesn't come with any Special Features.
