I would rate this workout a high intermediate but you can follow the modifier for a less intense workout or adjust your poundage, or omit some equipment. I really liked this workout- I found the exercises to be unique and effective- I definitely felt the burn. I love the addition of the equipment making this workout a lot of fun, while still working those muscles. Rachel provides excellent instruction and form pointers throughout. I know I will get a lot of use out of this workout! I received this DVD to review.
