DVD Review: Crunch — Belly, Butt & Thighs Boot Camp

DVD Review: Crunch — Belly, Butt & Thighs Boot Camp

I'll be the first to say that the Crunch workout videos can be a bit much for me. The trainers can be just a bit too peppy and the music can be a bit too pop-ish for me. I will say, however, that I enjoyed Crunch — Belly, Butt & Thighs Boot Camp a lot.

This DVD is a very high-energy workout that is easy to follow and interesting to do (i.e. I was not bored after the first five minutes). In the 40 or so minutes that it takes to do the DVD, there is a good mix of cardio and sculpting — the cardio is fun and the sculpting is tough. The video focuses a good amount of time on lunges, more lunges, and squats so be prepared. My husband spent the majority of the time saying, "Wow, that looks hard" (as he sat on the couch and watched me sweat). The trainer, Teri Ann Krefting, comes off as motivating and strong, rather than the typical overly peppy and oddly skinny DVD instructor.

My only wish is that there were a bit more exercises for the arms, but I guess that's why it's called a belly, butt, and thigh boot camp, so it was to be expected. If you're looking for a fun way to work out your lower body then I highly recommend trying out this DVD. If you do, or if you've already tried it, share your comments below.

Fit's Tip: To really get in a good workout, think about supplementing the DVD with some extra cardio. I took a 15 minute jog after the DVD workout was over and felt great.

I have this DVD and I love it! It's really good for the days when I have limited time in my dorm (which is completely across campus from the gym)and want a more intense workout than Pilates.
