Tiff'nee does toningBy oscarina (5 reviews) from Milnthorpe , 21 Feb 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]Although marketed as a Dance video, this really only has one burst of cardio. It's pretty intense and high-impact though, so will give you a workout! The rest of the DVD involves lots of yoga-like stretches so you feel a good inch taller by the end of it. The abs section is definitely a killer section and the upper body toning bit without weights was quite original and hard work.
Martine is a really good sport in this, and the lead guy is excellent fun. Some of the more complicated moves don't get explained very well though so you just end up shuffling from side to side until you get to a bit you can follow.
Personally I'll be sticking with the 'heat - get that celeb body' DVD. But if you're wanting to tone up with a celebrity who doesn't shriek all the time, then give Tiff'nee a go.
Equipment needed: Exercise mat.

A Change From the Old Routine!!By Dee29 (14 reviews) from Bristol , 30 Aug 2008This one is not going to be for everyone, the cardio is minimal and you'd need to be comitted in order to learn the routines - as there isn't a great deal of 'step by step' teaching.
I don't think you need to have a knowledge of dance - just the desire to learn. I have two left feet, but thoroughly enjoyed this little gem.
If what you want is to tone and have a bit of a giggle - then this is definately one to try, it's not overly annoying, like most workout dvds.
If it's weight loss you're after, you'll need to mix this dvd with some intense cardio - or use it once the pounds start to drop to tone up for the perfect tone. It is hard work tho!!
I enjoyed it so much I bought it!! Enjoy and keep your workout fun!!
Customer ReviewBy a customer from UK , 23 Jun 2008I found this DVD very hard to follow, there was not enough direction from the instructor and no actual close ups of Martine throughout the workout - was she sweating too much?!! Some might like this DVD but I would not recommend it to beginners as I think they would find it very disheartening. Thought the nutritional advice was dreadful too!!
Ok for ex-dancersBy a customer from London , 18 Jan 2008If you've never taken a dance class before, stay away from this. The instructor (a choreographer) doesn't give much in the way of what's coming up next and any of the usual helpful chat you usually get in an exercise video.
The cardio is very minimal which is disapointing.
Kind of inspiring for ex-dancers because it's like doing a basic dance class - just not as funky. I might go back to doing classes again.
The 'nutritional guide' at the end of the DVD was so ridiculous I turned it off after a minute or so (eat only fruit until Noon, don't mix your proteins with carbs)
Really GoodBy a customer from Grimsby , 24 May 2007I really enjoyed this dvd, has it was different. The music was good and the instructor was ever so nice. It started with a warm up then cardio then arms (without weights, which I enjoyed) than upper body stretch, legs and bums, then lower body stretch,abs and cool down. It could have done with all the stretches at the end though.
Argh the music!!By a customer from Midlands , 08 Mar 2007Okay, I have to say, the routines are good in that they don't require weights etc. But I just get fed up with the rubbish music and the fact that you have to almost memorise the routine because while you're in a position where you cant see the dvd - the moves are changed and the instructor doesn't tell you! Also, I don't get why it's considered HER fitness DVD as she doesn't do anything that the girls in the background don't do!? That always confuses me. Definately not one for me!
