Workout Review: Women's Health Total Workout in Ten

I was totally prepared to hate this workout.  I added it to my Netflix and didn't really think to look at my queue when this one happened to arrive.  Honestly, I was a little bummed when I got it, thinking that I would hate it and it would be way too easy.

Boy, was I wrong!  I ended up absolutely loving this workout.  The entire workout lasts about 50 minutes if you do all segments (so the title is kind of a lie).  There are 10 minute upper body, lower body, cardio, warmup and cool down segments.  I ended up doing all of the segments together, and while it was challenging, it definitely wasn't too much or boring.

I also found myself really liking the trainer.  Normally fitness hosts get on my nerves and I end up muting them and just listening to music, but Amy Dixon is legit.  She seems pretty nice and is motivating without being annoying.

The only down side is that one of the "extra features" is for core work and you'll need a stability ball to do that.  I don't have a stability ball, so I couldn't do that segment.  Other than that, this is a great workout.
