Now that my love affair with Jillian Michaels is officially past its “30 Day” DVD limit, I have to move on to a new workout DVD. Recently, I ordered 3 DVDS from Amazon (curse you, “You may also enjoy…” feature. I get tricked into buying more every time!).
I don’t really know who this woman is, but the DVDs had pretty good reviews. I got the following:
Thus far, I’ve only completed one workout: the Xtreme Timesaver Training. I can already tell that I don’t like her as much as I like Jillian Michaels. She’s not as sassy. And you can tell she’s reading off of cue cards. She’s just not a natural at talking to a camera as Jillian is. It’s awkward.
Secondly, I don’t really like how long the exercises are. Maybe I’ve been spoiled by Jillian’s 30 second exercises and quick switches. But even though you do some exercises for just a minute it seems like an eternity.
However, I’ve only done one DVD once. I haven’t tried the others. So, before I get too biased toward my girl crush (<3 Jillian), I’ll give this more of a chance.
The other thing that really gets me is that this Jackie lady has a penchant for wearing weird metallic booty shorts on her DVD covers. It’s slightly hideous, no matter how ripped her abs are.
Also she’s freaking lanky. Her arms are as long as my entire body, which probably helps her out. I only wish I could be that long.
More reviews to come!
