Davina's fitness DVDs are things of legend, aren't they! Everyone knows Davina, she's one of the most friendly TV hosts out there. Her fitness DVDs seem to be hit after hit and I've always wondered why.
I'll be honest with you. I've been put off trying one of her DVDs because she looks sooooo amazing I thought it'd wind me up no end seeing her prancing around on my TV looking all amazing, not sweating and finding it all easy..
So, when I was was offered the chance to try out her most recent fitness DVD recently, 7 Minute Fit, I paused.. but then I thought, what the heck, why not?
Well, I am so glad I did. I was very pleasantly surprised but this DVD. First of all, Davina remains her friendly self. She is so likeable, so watchable. Yes, she looks amazing, but she really does sweat and works hard in it!
The work outs themselves are fab. What I love about this DVD is that it's really simple to do, and easy to fit around your life. There is a warm up which lasts just a few minutes (and it is effective) and a cool down and then several different work outs which last 7 minutes each. So, you can do a warm up and one work out, or the warm up and every work out. It's up to you. Great to tailor around life. Some days you are less tired or have more time. Some days you are tired out but want a quick burst of fitness.
The exercises are varied. You can work on an overall fat burner, you can concentrate on your tummy or legs. You can even test your fitness levels. A good way to see how you've improved.
When I'm doing the DVD I start with the warm up. I then pick two or three of the 7 min work outs, I try to get a variety, so I might pick boxersize to get the whole body working, and then the intense tummy work out. I always finish with the cool down because it's relaxing if nothing else!
There is a very useful (and recommended) section on how to do various different exercises and stretches which is handy if you are new to exercise or aren't familiar with certain ones.
Overall, this is a really great home work out. The variety, speed of exercise and the friendliness of Davina and her trainer make it enjoyable. And I do mean that!
