Kelly Coffey Meyer: 30 Min to Fitness Bootcamp Review


30 Minutes to Fitness: Bootcamp
Kelly Coffey Meyer, 2009


This dvd has two <30 minute bootcamp (cardio and strength) workouts and a bonus <20 minute stretch workout. The dvd is chaptered very well and you can choose from warmup, workout 1, workout 2, stretch, or premixes. Under premixes you have a 55 min w/o that includes the w/u, both bootcamp w/o's and a c/d; a 30 strength only premix; a 30 minute cardio only premix; and a 22 minute stretch that includes the w/u and bonus stretch. You will need a variety of dumbbells. Kelly works out w/ 2 background exercisers in a smallish set with some posters in the background.

The warm up gets right to the point-which I like. You will do some jacks, jogging, marches and plyos to get you ready for the workout. Both workouts come in under 30 minutes and utilize mostly medium weights. You do a lot of multi muscle moves so you cant really heavy up. But by the end of the w/o my muscles were plenty worked from repetitions. For example, you do a dip w/ a lateral raise. So I used 10s w/ Kelly-while my LB wasnt feeling it my shoulders sure were! The format is 2 minutes of strength and then 2 minutes of cardio.

The cardio is all athletic type moves put together into little routines. They arent hard to follow but not as simple as the Firm choreo. Im sure you all will do just fine w/ it. Lots of plyos interspersed w/ lower impact moves so your HR gets way up there but you also get a little "break" (if you want to call it that) while your HR stays up. I was drenched in sweat by the end! She includes jacks, plyo lunges, mock jump rope, flying heel tap jacks, a baseball drill, a basketball drill, knee pulls, marching, and other fun but tough moves.

The strength is multi muscle and includes a few kettlebell inspired moves like a side lunge w/ a knee up and a swing type move w/ the dumbbell. Weighted plyo squats, push ups, walking planks, knee pull planks, squats with clean and press, curtsey dips, etc.

I didnt do the bonus stretch w/o but Kelly works out alone on the same set.

I would rate this a high intermediate workout that could easily be modified up or down. One b/g exerciser shows beginner modifications. I like Kelly though feel her cueing could be a tiny bit better. Too many of the moves are quite similar but combined in different ways, so for the choreo challenged like me-better cueing could have saved me (the tiny) bit of confusion I had. She has a good personality and energy and I am interested in trying more from me. I am a huge fan of "bootcamp" w/o's and this one DID NOT dissapoint! Great w/o with tons of premix options. I received this DVD to review.
