Default anyone tried Minna Lessig workout tapes?

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has tried Minna Lessig workout videos? I'm looking for an alternate for the walk away the pounds tapes.
I've read that the choreography isn't too hard on her aerobic workouts, but I have two left feet.

Any opinions would be welcome.

Thanks,
Sherry

I have 2 of Minna's DVDs...the "Balanced Blend" (which contains 2 workouts; "Fat Eliminator" and "Strength & Grace") and her "Emergency" workout. I LOVE the "Balanced Blend" DVD and really enjoy both workouts. "Balanced Blend" is not heavy on choreography at all. The "Fat Eliminator" workout on "Balanced Blend" is 30 minutes of cardio/strength intervals with a 15 minute bonus toning segment that works your upper body, lower body & abs. The "Fat Eliminator" always gets me sweating quickly. And the other workout on "Balanced Blend," the "Strength & Grace" workout is a yoga & pilates based strength workout. I love "Strength & Grace" on days when I want to do something good for my body but don't want to get all sweaty. Her Emergency workout is just o.k. in my opinion (didn't get me sweating and had more choreography than the "Balanced Blend"). I think Minna is a great instructor, as she's not overly perky yet she's motivating and easy to follow. Hope that helps.

PS - after writing this email I think I might give "Emergency" another shot...maybe I was in a bad mood when I tried it last!

Default thank you!

Hi,

Thanks so much for your response! I'm going to give one of her DVDs a try when I'm in a little better shape. I had borrowed one of the "quick fix" tapes from our library, and liked Minna's instructions (although her shape is intimidating-she looks so strong!) Have you tried the quick fix tapes of hers? Collage video and amazon have them.

Thanks again for taking the time to reply. I really appreciate it. I'd hate to spend money on a tape/dvd and then be too klutzy or out of shape to do it.

Thanks,
Sherry
