Good dvd, bit overpriced for what it is though. I bought this as part of my new get fit regime. After shopping around it seemed that spinning dvds are a bit pricey and this one seemed like good value for money as it’s three dvds in one and was the cheapest beginners dvd i could find. So far i’ve only done the beginners dvd. I’ve found it a bit basic if i’m honest. It’s just a guy on a bike in a completely white background doing the different sets. The music is not fantastic and the narrator is not exactly the most enthusiastic. I’ve bought some other dvds and fitness games which were half the price and this is by far the least value for money in my opinion but i do appreciate that what motivates one person is completely different for others. Also, perhaps when i reach intermediate/advanced stages it might be better and i might come back to change my review. All in all though it’s not bad and does the job.
Great dvd and classic value for money.
Cycle Workout DVD [3 DVD set] – [Region 0 Worldwide]
- Correct Set up of your bike
- Warm up
- Positions: Sprint,Jump/Running, Out of Saddle/Hill Climbing
- Cooling down and Stretching exercises
Music and workout are quite good but the strong south african voice was unexpected and does grate a bit. Also the dvd consists of looking at the person using their spinning machine against a white background and floor which is very sterile and uninspiring. I think ‘beginner’ means new to spinning and not new to exercise as the warm up is quite challenging if followed at the intensity suggested.
This is the best dvd in my opinion to emulate spinning classes.
Just the instructor and you. Lot of spin classes and this is quite intense. Don’t move from beginner to intermediate too quickly. If you are prepared to work really hard and not cheat, you will have results with this dvd.
Cycle Workout DVD [3 DVD set] – [Region 0 Worldwide] : Like some people mention, the background is not the most inspiring. The narrator sounds like master yoda, and i wanted to strangle him several times, already during my first work-out. This was “beginner-level” but i do not know what they feed the beginners in yoda-land, but it was killing me not so softly. Will be interesting to see what to expect from advanced dvd. If i survive the first one that is.
