Quick Fit with Andrea Metcalf is one DVD with three full-length workouts: Fat-burning aerobics, traditional body-sculpting and Pilates toning. All three workouts are structured in 5-minute blocks. The benefit? You'll maximize variety while challenging your body in diverse ways. The cardio program is a good example. The blocks range from traditional pony and boxing moves to "two step chugs" and "sumo squat attacks." The body-sculpting workout is also varied; it mixes proven classics like planks and squats with innovative routines like "better booty bridges" and "ballet bottom blasts" (often working multiple muscle groups at once). The third program is a mostly-core-focused blend of Pilates and gym-style exercises. Requires 3 to 8 lb. dumbbells and a resistance band.
Andrea does a great job with the instructions. The workout is tough but I do not dread it. I really look forward to popping in this DVD and working out with Andrea early in the morning before I head off to work. Andrea has a great tone and she is super motivational. You will burn calories and feel great. I work up a sweat and feel strong when I am finished with the workout.
