I recently had the opportunity to try the COREgym. Its a cool stabilizing tool that isdvds and other fitness accessoriesCOREgym Bootcamp kit

"Eight - 8 minute workouts." Each segment is 10-13 minutes and most do each exercise for 1 minute each and then move on to another exercise. You can select your workout or play all. The segments are led by a variety of instructors & are all set in a beautiful outdoor beach/ palm tree setting with 2 background exercisers. You will need your COREgym strap and tubing for these workouts.

As a whole I would rate this an intermediate dvd, though the High Octane was a high intermediate/low advanced. You can easily vary the intensity of the workouts by using the heavy resistance COREgym tubing, and/or by adjusting the tubing. I like the leads for these workouts (Ginger, another female, and buff male) and found all the routines easy to follow along to. I think dvd is very good for travel and for those w/ limited space options. Lots of variety of exercises & time options- this is my favorite of the dvds I reviewed- very enjoyable!!!
