I had been one of those people that got really excited hearing the as seen on tv commercials for this when it first came out. I know nothing is usually as great as it sounds on tv, but I was glad to give this one a try. Let me tell you it does give you a good workout and your abs will be sore, especially when first doing it. It does a good job of working your core, which is what will help you with the rest of your body. It's very upbeat and the music is good. Even if you can't pick up on all the moves at first you can just move to the beat and you will still end up burning off calories. Some of the moves could be a little tricky, but if you keep working at it you will eventually get it down. This is something that I could do every now and then. I don't know if I would do it every day, but who knows I could get into it more the more I did it. I would say to give it a try. Sometimes the library has a couple of the workout videos also, so you could always try it before buying it. It is a little pricey. I didn't find the meal plan worth sticking to. I like to come up with my own meals. If you stick with this you will see results.
