Everybody's Workout is a low-impact workout for people who are moderately fit.

• Ideal For:  moderately fit individuals; any age group.


The main part of this 58-minute DVD is a 25-30-minute low-impact workout that involves stepping and rhythmic movements with a variety of music styles.  Pretty much anyone can do these moves, as they are not complicated.  However, if you do them vigorously, it will drive your heart rate up.

At the end of the main workout, Kenn guides you through a 5-minute stretching routine while standing in place.  This is a nice feature.

He also provides an abdominal workout, involving a series of crunch exercises on the floor.

• What I Liked:  The moves are simple; anyone can do them.  Also, it is low-impact, so older subjects may like this DVD.  What I especially liked was his introductory message.  He encourages regular exercise and even states that he is not a fan of diets.  I concur; the goal is regular exercise, not starvation.  Also, the variety of music (Latin, Irish, Brazilian, etc.) is a nice touch.

• What I Didn't Like:  At the end of the DVD, Kenn offers "7 Nutrition Tips".  I liked the first 6.  They are general and common sense. However, in the 7th one he recommends a dietary supplement.  This is unfortunate because personal trainers should not do this.


In summary, this is an excellent exercise DVD for general conditioning.
