It took a little less than 30 minutes for the whole 4 video series, and I burned around 210 calories (of course, this is just my calorie burn, and it's just an estimate by a heart rate monitor). Because of the nature of the workout, I knew it wasn't going to be a huge calorie burn; that wasn't why I did it. I did it because I need to tone up other areas besides my running parts. These four videos worked so many body parts, and they were great for muscle toning. Doing it two days in a row really made me feel the effect they had on the parts they worked.
And as far as Sarah's videos, here are my thoughts judging from this first one:
+She has great presence. For a while I forgot that I didn't pay to do the DVDs. The video is high quality, and she even captures different angles of her working out, so you can see certain movements and how to fix yours.
+She talks to you while you're working out, just as you're working out right there with her. She encourages you at all the right times, and she seems to be feeling the same burn, shake, and fatigue that you are as you're doing them. She also tells you how to modify the exercises if you can't do what she's doing.
+The one time that I needed water desperately was also the only time in the video that she randomly said between exercises, "Go grab a swig of water if you need it." It was like she saw that I had run over to the counter to get mine.
+Lastly, and this is my favorite part, for this video at least, she was working out in her living room too. She wasn't on a beach or in an exercise gym with 4 other people. She was just doing what you're doing, so it reminds you that there are many other people that work out at home in their living room (in this video she even still had her Christmas tree up!).
Anywho, I just wanted to share, because I've definitely subscribed to her channel and will be referring to it when I need a quick workout to help in toning up.
This isn't a compensated or sponsored post in any way, and she has no idea I'm even writing it. I just wanted to make sure that I share with you things that I really enjoy myself.
