What I Thought:
I have exercised to Denise Austin for years--way back when I was watching her on VHS!! I always find her exercises challenging yet easy enough to follow along, get my heart rate up, and get me the exercise I need! Of all the exercise DVDs I've tried over the years, I always come back to Denise Austin as my favorites, and these are no exception. Of the two DVDs, my favorite has been the Sculpt and Burn Body Blitz DVD. I love the mixed martial arts workout--so if you can only afford one, I'd say to go with that one. You can buy either of these DVDs for less than $10 now at Amazon.com!
