Kristi Yamaguchi- Power Workout DVD Review

I am really giving an extra push to my daily workout to get in shape for the summer. Olympic Gold Medalist, Kristi Yamaguchi has always been an inspiration to me because she is a busy wife and mother like me who has been able to stay in excellent shape and is both strong and healthy. She gives me the confidence that I can meet my own fitness goals so I was excited to work out to her first workout DVD.

Power Workout was developed by Kristi and celebrity fitness trainer, Erin O’Brien. I appreciate that it combines cardio and strength training into one very comprehensive workout. Even more important is that there are three 10-minute circuits plus abs and chests components too so I can do as much or as little of the program at any given time depending on my schedule.

What I like a lot about the workout DVD is it feels like I am working out in a session with Kristi and her personal trainer. The exercises are challenging yet I was able to keep up with most of the workout during the first few sessions. I could not believe that I worked up such a sweat and it was a great feeling. The only equipment that I need is light weights and a mat. Each time I work out I noticed that I am getting stronger and closer to being able to complete even the toughest parts of the routine.

Overall, this is one of my all time favorite DVD workouts to do at home. I give this a score of A+. To purchase Power Workout for only $16.99 you can visit the Acacia website.
